Lilly Was Special
“…taught how to harness these powers of suggestion…”
Even from birth, everyone thought Lilly was special. There was something unique about her. As a child, her mother often received smiles and compliments about how beautiful Lilly was in this or that outfit. “She has such a beautiful smile,” was a phrase her mother heard often. In response, her mother always gave a humble thank you. As she grew older, Lilly found making friends rather easy. In fact, many things in life that often came with trial and error, Lilly seemed to understand without much effort. Despite her mother insisting that she call herself by her birth name, Lilith Anne Montgomery, Lilly continued to demonstrate a uniqueness that few could identify. In her tweens, the idea that she was both special and unique was not foreign to her thoughts. She learned to use her charm, whit, and intellect to subtly manipulate her environment and the people in it. Through her teens and young adult life, Lilly’s mother taught how to harness these powers of suggestion so no one would be the wiser.
