The Two Towers

“He’s gonna do WHAT?!!”

Oh oh, never should have said nothing. I swallowed and inspected my sneakers. Found a stain. Hopefully mustard.

Mom grabbed my shoulder.

“Marcus Anthony Jeremiah Rivera, what did you just say your brother was up to?”

Her face told me it’d be as bad for the messenger if I didn’t confess. I was toast. Benito was gonna beat me up soon as she was done with him.

“See those towers?”

Her eyes narrowed.

“Benito saw a big rope between them and he said it’s perfect for zip-lining.”

Way Mom ran, she should’a been in the Olympics.

  1. Na’ama Y’karah,

    I love the way Mom used Marcus’ full name. Poor guy. He’s going to catch it no matter what. Perhaps, when Mom’s finished with Benito, he’ll think better of beating up his brother. Guess you could call me an optimist. πŸ˜‰ Ah….boys. What one won’t think of the other one will.

    Shalom,

    Rochelle
