Chapter 8- Cans and Cookies
Kenny walked alongside his mother as they approached their home.
Kenny looked up at his mother. She stared straight ahead as she spoke.
Dont tell your father about this.
She looked down at him.
Well, duh, Kenny replied, but how am I gonna explain why Im home all week?
Carol looked ahead again and scratched her head in thought.
You wont be home all week, she said as she looked down at him again, Ill have some errands to run all week. Youre gonna come with and help me out.
Im not in trouble?
Kenny, loosen your hood. I cant understand a damn thing youre sayin.
Kenny loosened the ties on his hood a bit and repeated, Im not in trouble?
Only if your dad finds out, she answered, sounding worried, This is crazy. I dont believe that you have to fight over food at school too.
She looked ahead again. They were standing in front of the front door.
I dont know how youre gonna get lunch this week
She opened the door but jumped back, startled, when she saw her husband inside. He looked up at her and Kenny who stood in the doorway.
Stuart, what are you doin home?
Im watching TV, he replied lazily, whats he doing home? Schools not out yet.
Kenny got sick in class, Carol lied, I had to go pick him up.
Bullshit, he dont look very sick, he looked over at Kenny, hes probably faking it. Go to your room.
Kenny dashed past his father, down the hall and into his room.
Stuart, said Carol as she closed the front door, I think youre a little too hard on Kenny.
Its calledparenting, Carol. A kid does something wrong then they have to face the consequences.
I understand that, she said, but he wouldnt act the way he does if he had a better influence.
What are you saying? He eyed her angrily.
Stuart! she threw her arms in the air, youre almost always out of work, you sit around drinking and you read all this garbage! she pointed at a few dirty magazines scattered across the floor at the last words.
I, I just she put her hands at her sides, Do you even care about your children or your family at all? Your oldest son is in high school and hes failing every single class.
