I DON'T OWN EHC just the storyline and the idea.
Chris got home from school and slammed the door.
"Boy," Rochelle said, "Don't you be slammin' that door"
Now Rochelle was concerned. Whatever was putting Chris in this mood must REALLY be upsetting him.
"Baby what's wrong?"
"You want to know what's wrong. I'll tell you what's wrong. I am SICK AND TIRED of being bullied in school by CAROUSO and being singled out because I happen to be black. Then to add insult to injury you chose to get mad when I finally explode or mess up instead of looking at it through my eyes"
"So you feel like I'm being unfair to you?"
"Ain't that what I said?"
Chris thought she would knock the medulla out of his abingotta but instead she told him, "You may have a point"
"Don't push it boy. I said MIGHT. Look Chris you may think I'm being too hard on you but I will NOT lose another child"
"You aren't the oldest Chris. Your sister, Krista was born when I was only 13 years old. She's been dead and buried since I was eight months pregnant with you... murdered by some punk ass kid."
"What happened to her?"
"My IDIOT brother was supposed to be watching her but was talking on the phone with his girlfriend. She was dead before he noticed she was missing."
"Yeah well I'm sorry that happened. I really am but can't you try to see things through our eyes"
"Yeah I'll try but it ain't gonna be easy"
"Thanks momma. I love you"
"I love you too baby"
"Maybe you can stop getting mad," Chris suggested.
"I ain't gonna stop getting mad," Rochelle said, "But I will stop being hurtful"
"One more thing"
"Don't slam that door again"
Chris smiled at her. She didn't make any threats.
