Well it was saturday afternoon and Grace and I were at her house watching a
Get smart re-run. Tatty was out with Tommy again. Cookie was at choir
practice. so Grace and I were alone.
" Walker's coming home, Thrusday." Grace said to me during a commerical.
"oh" I said
"He said he was bringing a friend." she contunied.
Ok, Walker was coming home again and he was bringing another friend or
would it be Swartz again. I pondered that one long and hard.
But on thrusday day night I pondered no more.
Cause there we were in our usual line up: Grace, me, Tatty, Cookie and
Walker entered the kitchen, following him was another person. yes it was a
girl but it diffenity wasn't Shawtz. She had dark hair, auburn. And was
curly like mine and she had green eyes.
"Hi Grace, hi squirt," said Walker" hi."
"So Walker who's your friend" asked Grace.
"oh" he said " this is Leigh. Leigh that's my half sister Grace, and her
friend Hannah and my mother, Tatty and that's Cookie and that's Gere." he
pointed down the line as talked.
"Hi ya'll" she said.
Ok she was offesouly from the south.
