PRAYING for the day that I can get off these streets, dreaming of lying my head on a soft and fluffy pillow, with my body lying betwixt some good-smelling sheets. That's a dream that I would like to come true. I went past my spot and grabbed a bag of clean clothes so I can go past Miss Ida's house to see if she'll let me take care of my hygiene. "Hey, Logic. How is the best dressed homeless lady tonight"? questioned the young man. "Wonderful as always, young man," I replied. "Cmon Logic. Where do you live? You can't be homeless," the young man earnestly inquired. "Young man, in the wisdom of my years, would I make light of my pending circumstances"? I responded. I left him there pondering what I said and headed to Miss Ida's house. "Hey, babe, you just getting off work? the guy said. "Yeah, Skeeter, going to take care of my hygiene, a task you need to do, man," I suggested. "Now you know Logic; I ain't going nowhere. These streets got me, been out here too long. Not like you. No, you got smarts. You are only out here temporary. Babe, you got a couple of bucks"? Skeeter asked. Taking five dollars out of my pocket, I handed it to Skeeter, "And when I go, if you straighten up, I'll take you with me, later, man." I encouraged walking off. I needed to stop at the store to get a couple of things for my hygiene encounter. Before I went into the store, this young lady grabbed me by my arm, "Hey, Logic, can I talk to you for a minute" she begged. "Sweetpea, yes, give me a minute need to run into this store right quick," I answered. While in line, "Miss Logic, why do you talk to people like her"? the clerk asked, turning her nose up. "I use to think that a few years ago. That all homeless people were drug addicts, worthless people that don't pay their bills. But, I am she, and she is me. That is my outlook on it today. Thank you, sweety, you have a good night." I replied, leaving the store. "Sweetpea, you look a mess. You told me you were going to clean up with that money I gave you. Baby, I knew you were going to get high too, but you promised me you would tend to your hygiene," I scolded her. She went to give me an excuse, but I waved it off. I had a ten in my hand, "Sweetpea, I can't take you with me in this condition. I shouldn't give you this money either, because I'm scared the next time I see you may be in a box. I love you, boo. Gotta go." I said, handing her the money.
Jessica finalized the deal, and everyone came to the United States with Jessica. As they were pulling up to the house, Sergio says, "I remember this house. Didn't this house need a lot of work? You brought this Jessica"? Jessica just smiled as she leads everyone into the house. Jessica completely renovated the house. There were only five bedrooms and six people. The house had a fully equipped kitchen, two and a half bathrooms, with a fenced-in backyard. The basement had a fully equipped efficiency apartment that was completely separate from the rest of the house.
FOR THE WORLD
For the World, the good deed would have been to give the 2,000 dollar stimulus checks to the awaiting American people. The 600.00 dollar check would be more than some Americans have in their pocket now, and I guess anything beats a blank. There are so many people out of work due to this pandemic. American people are hurting, unable to pay their bills, unable to feed their families. The first stimulus check of 1,200 was a big help to a lot of people. Many were hoping that after that check, America would soon go back to normal. However, that did not come to pass. It became worst, and the number of positive cases grew, and the death toll. Many people received their jobs back when America reopened; however, many did not because many places could not go back to full capacity. So that stimulus of at least the same 1,200 was much needed.
The next couple of days were a little awkward between the married couple. Every day Jessica came home to a big surprise, one greater than the other. It went from a bouquet of long-stemmed red roses to a diamond tennis bracelet and matching earrings, to a beautiful black and teal cocktail dress with heels to match. On the final day, a note saying, Get dressed, a car will be there in 2 hours, Love Jordan. Smiling to herself, Jessica went upstairs, got dressed for an evening with Jordan. Tonight she will put away her bad feeling for La'Janice and let her husband apologize.
As the leaves fall softly to the ground below, there is an eerie presence in the neighborhood. While everyone lays in slumber for tomorrow's anticipation of what lies ahead, there is one house in a state of unrest. Jessica Desanti is struggling with a cumbersome object, trying to get it into the basement. A large husky trails her, sniffing this large item as she continues to work with it. "Sasha, I have to get him downstairs." breathing heavily. Finally, she reaches the stairs leading to the basement. Sweating profusely, she sits down at the top of the stairs to gain some strength and oxygen. In the basement in the far dark corner lies a trunk. Next to the chest is a silver table like a dentist's office where all his utensils would be. On this tray were some cotton balls, rubbing alcohol, fresh linen, and a couple of hypodermic needles. "Well, Sasha, time to complete this mission," she said while standing up and grabbing the feet of her husband and began to drag him down the stairs.
My eyes flutter open to the sound of spammed notifications reaching my ear. My face turns into a frown as I automatically assume it's one of my friends attempting to schedule another party. We've barely been out of Quarantine for 2 months and they are already scheduling parties back to back. Do they never get tired of getting hammered? Once I bring myself to check my phone, my heart stops for a moment. In big letters displayed across the top of my lock screen reads; "DO NOT LOOK AT THE MOON".
