This is the Hawthorne curse: In every branch of our family tree there is a daughter who must remain forever single; it doesn’t matter who, as long as there is one.

A daughter who must remain forever alone to preserve the happiness of their siblings, and as the youngest Hawthorne it has fallen upon me.
But I never agreed to play this part. My sisters have had their happiness long enough. My family tree has just become my hit list.
