I loved the story. I reminded me of my own family. Our older generation tended to favor one child over another (especially the males over the females). However, please note that "favor" can be used positively as well. Our society just focuses on one particular definition: unmerited favor.
Great job with this story.
My mother in law came to live with us when she was approaching senility. My 4 year old daughter tried hard to please her but nothing would get through to my mother in law. Then I had my son and she lavished all her love on him. It was hard but I knew she only had sons and a girl child was unknown to her. In her senility, I guess it made sense. Luckily she had so much love from her other grandma it didn't matter too much. So this story brought back memories and not how my daughter dealt with but how it made me feel as the parent. that's the hard part as you show here.
