Hagar and Ishmael are Cast Out

“But I wonder if Hagar had nightmares. Nightmares of being forced to lie with her master. Nightmares  of death by heat exposure and thirst even after finding her new life in Paran. I wonder if Ishmael remembered the little brother he played with, who ended up with all the love of the father who loved Ishmael less. I wonder if the pain, the humiliation, the loss, the separation, the bitterness stayed with them.”
