When he got home that day I was good and ready to give it to him. But I looked into his face and I saw something that just was not right about him today.
Unlike any other day he just came in with a frown on hid face with silence being his first greeting. Usually before the door closes he would be going on about his day.
But today was different, as I looked into his face I noticed something resembling a river finally making its way to the sea just to look back and notice there is nothing in the sea to go fast for anymore, at least not like before.
I stared as he hung his hat and looked and my mother with a sigh as he exhaled.
“Fannie, pack up. We’re moving.”
Just like that.
I was crushed. My whole world turned upside down. I just got a chance to make friends. I just started to like my school, my teacher. As I dropped my hands low, I felt that the excitement was gone. I stuck my hand in my pocket.
When he got home that day I was good and ready to give it to him. It was my first time. I made honor role.
