The Night Was Young... Part I
In the City of Chicago in a bad part of the hood,
a little boy about eight years old was growing up.
He had a Mother and a Stepfather. The Stepfather
didn't like him very much. Danny, was this little boy's
His Stepfather was mean to him. his mother worked
and didn't spend too much time with him. The Stepfather
worked too , so he spend a lot of time alone. Soon he
met two little boys at school and became good friends
with them. These boys were my friend's sons.
That's how I got to meet Danny. From then on - he would
always go visit his new friends. There he would eat and a
lot of times even spend the night. The boys would lend him
some of their clothes to go to school. At his house, they knew
where he was, so they didn't worry and just let him stay there.
Danny was well liked by everyone. he had good manners. he
would even visit my house with my friend and her kids. his
Mother didn't worry and his Stepfather didn't care. he was well
behaved. He would also spend sometime with his parents, but
sometimes The Stepfather would throw him out, even in cold
weather. At his friends home, he always had a place to stay.
It was like that - that danny grew up. He became a very handsome
young man. he would live with his Mother and Stepdad on and off.
Then his two friends - Tony and Alex got married. Tony, that was closer
to him - moved to Texas and Alex stood in Chicago. Tony had told him-
as soon as I get settled I will send you some money and you can go
to texas too. Danny said - that's good, but I just know that something
bad is going to happen to me...
