I didn’t make it here last week but the four kids are still in the park, eating ice cream and hanging out. The first speaker is Stone.
“My Aunt Sara and Uncle Toby aren’t raising Robert the way our parents are teaching us, and sometimes I think Toby doesn’t agree with her parenting methods either.”
Kelly encouraged him, in between licks of his ice-cream cone; he was the kind of friend that even though he’d heard it all before he knew Stone needed to vent.
“Well remember when we were ten and the two weeks we spent at the lake, for some reason Robert was with us too.”
Vonny stood, wandered over walked to the dust bin and tossed in her paper napkin, speaking as she did so, ”Yeah, I remember we walked into town.”
“Bloody long walk and a good thing we got a drive home,” Quinn added.
“Well we hitch hiked and got back after dark, now do you remember?”
Stone took a sip of his juice holding the tin so tightly that he almost dented it.
