|Significant other||Mr. Ellis (estranged)|
|Children||Eden McCain (stepdaughter, deceased)|
Eden's father and stepmother have continuous arguments; when the man abandons the family, Eden's stepmother blames Eden. Believed by her stepdaughter, the matriarch gives Eden thankless chores to do, as Eden's stepmother seemingly does nothing but drink and smoke. As Eden grows up, her stepmother continues to reinforce that her estranged husband left because "he didn't want no kid". One day, Eden says, "I wish you'd just die!!!" to her stepmother. Her stepmother's heart hears Eden's command and stops pumping immediately. As she dies, her cigarette drops to the ground, setting the house afire. Eden attempts to wake the dead woman, but she does not move. Eden leaves her stepmother's body to burn.
Mr. Ellis remembers arguing with his wife, and that she said she didn't want to watch Eden because the girl wasn't her daughter.
"He left cause'a you. You always came between us. He didn't want no kid. 'Specially one that doesn't do nothin' but take up space. You ain't special. You ain't nothin' at all."
