Old Customs Die Hard

Very short story:

At the wedding reception, Mother admired her new daughter-in-law who wore hijab and long sleeves in the hot Texas sun. Never a guarantee. Still, this relationship seemed solid.

Religious differences aside, she’s family now. No one will bother her! Mother rested her hand on the concealed weapon under her blouse.
