Basically, I didn’t have a social life anymore. My relationship with my husband was also going down the drain because we never spent any quality time together. My whole life was a big mess at that Cabarcas 2 point, but whenever I saw Andy’s face he made my heart smile. Andy was a year old and he didn’t talk much I got worried, but the Doctor told me to wait a few more months because boy’s take a little bit longer than girls to start talking, so I did. In despite of all the frustration and despair I always showed Andy a lot of love.
Baekhyun's older brother, Baekbum, was angry at first. He strongly objected to the change of location, citing the reason that he had to leave his friends. He caved in eventually, on the condition he be allowed to visit them every other week or so. Unlike Baekbum who saw the move in a negative light, Baekhyun was positively estactic. Being the shy boy he was, he didn't have the courage to make friends back in his old school.
His mom is never home. Braxton hardly goes to school and when he does Braxton always wears the same clothes on. The poor little boy had a weird and bad lifestyle and Braxton couldn’t help it.

Troy never told him the dangers, he just needed some soldiers and Desean became one. Mentally afraid, physically unfit, and lacking street smarts, it was simply a matter of time before Desean would be killed. As the months rolled on, things were going well for the gang. They were selling lots of drugs and Desean had recently recorded a mixtape. Desean was very excited, but kept it to himself.
When Lowell came home, there was no fanfare like there is today when servicemen come home. The people in his hometown were pretty much indifferent. His family was glad to have him home, but the rest of the town weren’t fans of the war, so they didn’t show much support. Lowell was lucky when it came to his war experience. He never had to participate in the intense fighting on the frontlines like many servicemen, or even see any of the fighting, but it was still a tough time for him to go through.
Any time my brother starts to tattle on me, he forgets to mention the fact that he does drugs on the daily. Austin has never fully paid my parents or grandparents back for anything they’ve helped him pay for, whereas I have paid for everything. It frustrated me when my parents cannot see through my brother’s fakeness. Austin is a complete pain in the butt at work because he will specifically ask people if they have heard anything about me, just so he can tell my parents. I do not do drugs; I barely go out.
He was injured when he was nine, so he did not go to school, which was no problem for Hawthorne who was not a big fan of school at the time. This time allowed for Hawthorne to explore and do many things other children could not do because of school. During Hawthorne’s early childhood he did a lot of soul searching and finding his place in society. After he recovered from his injury he resumed school and went to Bowdoin College. He was an average student there and graduated in the middle of his class.
A few boys are ready to enlist, and some do not even consider it. Phineas says he does not even believe there is a war at all, and he partly convinces Gene of this idea as well. The war doesn’t hit any of them until Leper, the first to enlist, goes to war and comes back a complete mess. Although not children, they are not quite adults, and they share a rare time of carefree play that is completely isolated from the war. These young boys are separate from the reality of the world while they continue their studies just as they had always done, with the only difference being an extra school session in the summer.
We had heard of other people doing it but we were both newcomers to t... ... middle of paper ... ...ve it up. But I now realized my mistakes, I knew I could never do it again. That is why on the next day of school when he asked me, as he routinely did, ''Doing 'gardies' after school'' I replied by saying ''That's getting dull, Lets do something else''. He said ''Fine.Lets play 'chappe' instead ''What's that'', I said curiously ''Chapping doors and running away'' I realized then he hadn't been enlightened in any way by this experience. He found other people to play these immature games with and no more was said of it.
I questioned him every day on why I had to get a job while my friends played outside and enjoyed their summer. He always said, “Your friends would never be ready for the real world, son.” My father grew up in a strict household. His dad was in the military for over 20 years. Every time my grandpa came around, my father made sure the house was clean and that he ironed his military uniform to a crisp. I never knew why he always wore his uniform when my grandparents came to visit.
