On Agate Hill
Molly Petree did not kill Jacky Jarvis. Many people swore that she did. Jacky was shot, but not by Molly. I believe that Jacky’s Brother John Howard Wiletts aka BJ killed Jacky. Molly loved Jacky too much to ever hurt him unless he asked her to. Molly was a beautiful, educated, and talented young woman. Molly fell in love with Jacky because to her he was her demon lover. Jacky was a simple country boy. He played in a gospel group. The group was called The Rag Mountain Ramblers on Saturday and the Angel Band on Sunday. Jacky loved Molly with all of his heart. John aka BJ was Jacky’s Cousin. They couldn’t have been any closer, they was born only a few days apart. BJ likes to protect the people up on Bobcat. He likes to make nightly rounds to check on everything. BJ was also in love with Molly Petree. Molly didn’t know that BJ was in love with her. She was in love with Jacky. All of these reasons and many more support that BJ killed his own brother Jacky Jarvis. BJ and Jacky ran a store on Rag Mountain. BJ said that him and Jacky were more than cousins, “he was like my other half.” BJ always respected Jacky and looked up to him. When BJ saw Molly, he was amazed by her. Molly was not from Bobcat, she was a educated school teacher. Molly was truly a good person. She didn’t care about the way BJ looked. She liked him for what was inside of him. BJ thought the world of Molly. Jacky loved Molly as well. But Jacky was a traveling man. He never liked to stay in one place for long. When BJ saw that Jacky was cheating on Molly, it made him angry. BJ thought that Molly deserved to be treated with respect. BJ had very many good reasons for killing Jacky. Jacky was gone when Molly had their first daughter Christabel. BJ was right by Molly’s side in the store the night she was born. BJ took right up with Christabel. When Crissy was almost two years old, she died from Diphtheria. Jacky took her passing really hard. The book never tells exactly how BJ reacted....
