Khalilah my friend from high school and I were walking home. She was after me about making money smuggling drugs into the school. Her parents got on the outs with each other and split up to run drugs down South, neither one wanted to take Khalilah. She skipped school and sell drugs for Nachine and make love to Valerian to get her own operation. I would help her run the money part of her operation in return I get cut of the money. It could be great for me to escape my mom.
Everything went sour when Tattle Tale gang did a drive-by on Mario. I liked him a lot and he was murdered before my eyes. I was told to keep quiet or the gang come after me. I wanted nothing to do with Khalilah's business I advised her to finish school like me and get away from the city.
Then my mother accused my father of cheating again. She went into her psycho phased and I got to get out of there.
Why do you have to escape your parents or "psycho mom"?
My mom has mental issues but she doesn't seek help for it. My dad has me keeping eye on her and stay home with her. I can't solve her problems. I'm scare my mom could hurt someone or kill the person this time.
What do you mean?
My mother caught the bus to a rich neighbor. She dragged me upstairs of a fancy house to a bedroom. I remembered I was about seven when I saw my father butt naked humping another woman. My mom pulled out a screwdriver and started stabbing the sheets. The lady got injured. My father ran out and left the scene. My mom was arrested. She was handcuff to a bench while I sat next to her. When my father came to pick me up, my mother was talking out head so bad the officers drove her to the hospital. She said, "Don't worry I've been sent here before I'll be good and they'll let me out."
What worries you?
I end up another broke person in Detroit still living with my parents. I'll keep working at McDonald on the weekend and fulltime during the summer to get enough money to move out. I'm saving so little money because when my dad is layoff or refuse to pay the bills I pay them. I need to get a job after college and leave my parents behind.
