The children lost their mother on founders day.


The Carter home is very modest compared to some of their neighbors but it is all that this small family can afford.


Alfonzo:  Well after mom died I knew that things would be tough.  Gran had done some fishing and sold those for cash just to build the house.  So I thought I’d go to the park, since it’s just across the street, and see if I couldn’t earn some more cash to get us through.


Alfonzo:  I did kinda get distracted when I met Malcolm.  I know he’s like really old but he sure is hot.  He even gave me my first kiss.  We went out on a date but we never went all the way. 


Alfonzo:  I think I’m in love and I think Malcolm loves me too.


Alfonzo: Well Malcolm went home to take care of his kids.  I try not to think about that part cause it kind of skives me out. So I got down to the business at hand.  I earned some cash.  Enough for more furniture and some food.  It’s not much but I’ll do as much as I can before I head off to college in the fall.


Alfonzo:  When I got home I checked in on Luci.  Gran had spent the whole day teaching her things.  Gran is all about learning.  It I had grown up with her instead of Mom, I’d be pretty smart right now.  Not that I’m not but…well I’m not.  I have a lot to learn in college.


Alfonzo:  Tried to get a little bonding in with Gran.  Haven’t seen her much since I was just a little thing.  Course Gran is Gran and that means she’s got her mind focused on learning.


Syble:  May have my head buried but I’m not blind.  I see all them women chasing after my boy.  Grown ups chasing after a kids.  Shameful.


Syble:  Like that Malcolm Cobb.  Shameful.  They might have thought I was asleep but I heard enough to know what was going on in my living room.  Aught to have gone in there and embarrassed us all.  But I thought better of it.  Was to late anyway.  The deed was done.


Syble:  And on little Luci’s birthday.  I got up and made her a special dinner.


Syble:  Wound up sharing it with that Malcolm.  Why did he have to go after my boy like that?


Syble:  But he acted real nice towards my Luci.  Teaching her how to play chess and all.  Course he goes after my little Luci and he will find himself missing bits of his person.


Syble:  Thank goodness their mother isn’t here to see.


Syble:  How shameful we’ve all started to be.  The next morning when the kids were at school I let young Malcolm put some loven on me.  Man’s got skills.  Just don’t like him using them on anyone but me.


Syble:  Well enough of that.  I’ve been teaching my Luci to study real hard and make something of herself.  Her moma tried but then got mixed up with that man.  I told her she could do better but they never listen.


Syble:  Well that’s all said and done.  My baby is gone now.  Died on Founders Day.  It was a freak thing.  Man I miss my girl.


Alfonzo:  So Gran thought it might be good if I dated someone my own age.  I called up Denita Ogg.  I really don’t know her well.  We’ve just met in passing.  But I remembered she was hot so I thought what the heck.  If it makes Gran happy.


Alfonzo:  Turns out we had a great time.  I’ve fallen hard for the girl.  Course now I have found out we’re going to the same college.  That could be awkward.  I’m not sure I’m ready to settle down to just one person.  Might not ever be.


Alfonzo:  Well I’m off to college.  Going to make Gran proud.  Just hope they’ll be ok while I’m gone.
