Random Sequence

"My dad -- my dad. He fired my dad, also."

"What? What do you mean?" I asked.

"My dad was a gardener. He liked working outdoors. He worked for that guy. Said his padre owns radio stations. One day my dad was hanging a big basket full of plants over that glass porch thing. My dad fell off a ladder and broke right through a big window. My dad was cut up kind of bad. But Mr. Bastard.... He said it was my dad's fault. Called him clumsy, told him to clean it up -- the blood and everything."
--from "Dark Eyes" (by me), originally published in Twilight Times
