When Double Becomes Single…continued

Last week ended when Lori said:”Please , grandmother, please rescue us; we promise you’ll never be sorry because James and I will make you proud.”

After school, Sharon met the children at the rental apartment and greeted them with arms opened wide. Four floors up.”Home sweet home but not for long,”James said. Sharon nodded, “You bet so take any clothes and sports equipment you own and let’s get the heck out of here.” She found the note from the loving parents. “Kids, we have to go on a business trip, be back soon so look in the drawer and find money.” Bile rose in Sharon’s throat when all she found was an empty drawer with plastic spoons and two twenty dollar bills.  “We’re ready,” called James. They packed a pitiful almost empty, tennis racquets and some clothes including James sax  wrapped in a towel and a guitar peeked out of his bag. Their eyes opened wide to see grans BMW. “Now what’s your fave food and don’t say pizza.”

  1. Those parents are horrible. $40 isn’t enough to feed 2 kids for as long as those parents are gone. Pathetic. Loved the last line.

  2. Those kids are much better off with their grandmother. I hope she gets to keep them and to hell with the parents. And yes, loved the last line. Although with my kids it would have been, “Don’t say chicken nuggets!” LOL

  3. Great Gram to the Rescue scene!! Forcing children to be the adults is terrible but not giving them the resources to do so is criminal. Hey, Gram!!

    • Hi Christina, are we having fun? You betcha! I always love your comments. This part of the Granny and her kids gets better every week. Please continue for the dearest story. Every week the story gets better as the kids grow older. Best always from me.
