Eyes That Seen Too Much

By Dawn Cloud

Abstract

This thesis is compiled of four short stories and is an excerpt from a story cycle that I’ve been working on for the last four years entitled Eyes That Seen Too Much. These stories follow the challenges faced by the Labossierre women. Although most fiction writing does address challenges and/or how characters face their particular challenges, this story cycle is slightly different due to the unconventional backgrounds of the characters. Katherine and her sister Raquel grew up as Prostitutes in Louisiana, where their mother, Bit (Lil’ Bit) was also a Prostitute. The sister’s daughters, Kennedy and Marie become Exotic Dancers in adulthood, and the reader witnesses some of the challenges that they face as children and the social constraints of being daughters of former prostitutes and exotic dancers
