older Dorian Mitchell ^^

It was a whole three years since my dad left and life was getting hard.. for me. My mom was devastated that my dad and her sons left so She hit  the drugs heavy we lived in Englewood Chicago so it wasn't hard to find drugs or at least a drug dealer to give her drugs at that so she would give them money and they give her drugs which caused me to have nothing.

Englewood was a neighborhood with gangs and violence it wasn't the safest place to live but considering that almost every guy would join a gang most people had money. Not a lot but they had money.  me and my mom we didn't have money which caused my mom to start selling things in the house she sold all my toys food, furniture and it was horrible

I was soon old enough to start going to elementary school but I didn't have lotta clothes so I would wear the same clothes every day to school then I would go to the dry cleaners and get my clothes washed for free cause everybody knew how my mom was. I would get the school supplies in a backpack from other people in the neighborhood . food was a struggle. that's really why I only look forward to going to school was the food I didn't listen at all in class all I was ready for was breakfast and lunch because I didn't get that at home I didn't even have dinner.

I only had one friend at the time we met back when I was seven years old I was eight then but he was my only friend since elementary school and we really had a great bond you could almost say that we liked each other

Since I didn't have a lot of money everybody noticed that. they noticed I would wear the same clothes all the time they notice I would eat a lot at school and They noticed that I smelled a few times because our water would get shut off because my mom wouldn't pay the water bill so I was made fun of a lot but my one friend was there to back me and his name is Dorian Mitchell until this day he has my heart

But he was always backing me up when other kids would pick in me. I remember when he first defended me and also helped me out a bit

7 Year old maya

It's lunch time and maya is sitting by herself at a table with two plates eating her lunch. " eww look at her she's so gross" " ya and she smells" two girls giggling as they stood in front of her table talking about her

"Leave me alone plz" maya said looking at the girls feeling hurt that they were talking about her " oh hush up and eat your food you dirty pig" maya started to cry as they laughed at her

" excuse me what did you just say to her" a boy about 10 said to the two little girls. " what's it matter to you" one of the girls said

" how about you apologize to this young girl RIGHT NOW! Before I gets physical." The boy said stepping to the girls making them scared

" we're sorry maya" the girls said walking away. " hey you alright sweetheart" the boy said sitting at the table. " you didn't have to do that it happens all the time" maya said putting her head down. " hey look at me ..that ain't gonna happen no more Alright I got you" " you actually want to be my friend" she said smiling " ya ma I don't see why not ..ya you might smell a little and wear the same clothes but I can fix that if you could come to my house after school we can walk to my house cause I know you walk" " ya sure my mom won't be worried cause by time I get home she's usually high on drugs" " ya I know you live right across from me"

" wow that's awesome I would love to be helped cause I'm tired of people picking on me" "alright cool so we can walk after school"

So after school they walk to Dorian's house and his mom is cooking dinner.
