Chapter 3

Two weeks later, Cleo came in at ten as usual but she looked pretty excited as if she had won a million dollars.

"What's your problem?" Nicole questioned, peeking up from her books.

"I found out that someone bought the two houses next to me."


"I don't know, but I like new neighbors."

Cleo just lived two blocks away from the Laundromat. It was great walking distance but she insisted on driving her car. Nicole's house was about nine blocks away. A nice hike except when it was cold out and visibility was shit. Cleo had been complaining of the horrible conditions of the houses next to her for the longest and her kids couldn't play outside because homeless people, drug dealers and users always occupied the open homes illegally.

"This morning just as I was crawling into bed after dropping the kids off to school, I heard this awful pounding and I went outside to cuss whoever was making the racket off. This man was there and he was from some construction company. They were closing up the houses so they can stop the draft so they can start working on them. He asked me when do I sleep and I told him. He was the nicest white man I've ever met. He told me that he's making sure they didn't do any heavy construction during those times."
