Mother Fairy and her daughter-in-law belonged to the latter spectrum. In all honesty, even her fairy children failed to please her or made her happy, so there were no ways anybody could fill that shoes perfectly.
The fairy son, a deacon, torn apart between his duties as a son and as a husband! These two women in his life somehow love him, and torture him at the same. Favoring one side or the other had no desired outcomes, so the fairy son kept his mouth tight allowing whatever came, came to manifest. He whimpered no words as the Lord has taught him to endure!
When things heated up between Mother Fairy and the in-law, life of all the fairy children turned up side down, and everyone suffered this incurable disease of generations' curse. One believed that she was never at fault as a Mother. One desperately wanted to break out of this unbearable cycle.
Life in the fairy land was always on the verge of war! It could be as stupid as a slip of the tongue from one's innocent remark, or it could just be the way one breathes at a wrong moment.
