The first story in “Fates of Six” is about a young girl named Claire. She is the youngest of six children in a poor family, which consists of two sisters. Their mother is addicted to drugs and works a factory job in Phoenix. Her sister, Hazel, is the one who does the cooking and takes care of the children. Claire dreams of a day when she can take over her sister’s job and become a successful businesswoman. Hazel is not convinced that Claire is strong enough to take over her sister’s job, but Hazel’s father, an alcoholic, believes that she can do it.
Claire meets a man who turns out to be abusive and violent. He makes her want to run away from home and never return. Unfortunately, Claire does not know what to do and ends up running back into this man’s arms. However, the abuse turns into something much worse. Afterward, Claire becomes pregnant, and she must face all of her problems. She knows that her mother needs help, but she also knows that she herself has been abused, so she cannot bring herself to get help.
