Later that night, after Violet went to bed, Lawrence sat at her bedside. When he was sure she was asleep, he tucked her blanket in, turned out the lights and left the room.

When he was back in his room, he laid on the bed staring up at the ceiling. He couldn't think clearly and had no idea how to face Rebecca or what to say to her. He mind wandered over all the details, 'Did she really approach me for money, deliberately? Our meeting and getting to know each other was a coincidence though. She didn't make the first move to speak to me. We started talking to each other after I got her shoes dirty.'

The more he thought about the situation, the more restless he became. Suddenly, he missed his parents, 'Mom and dad are away now, but, if mom was at home, I could at least see her smile and hear her voice, which would soothe me.'

After thinking about his parents, Lawrence eventually grabbed his phone to call Cherry.

"Hello Lawrence," Cherry's voice sounded tender and loving to him through the receiver. "It's late. Why aren't you asleep yet? What about Violet?" she asked.

"She's asleep," Lawrence replied,"Mom, I just wanted to talk to you."

"Do you miss me?" Cherry smiled as she asked.

"Um," Lawrence managed as thoughts crowded his head, 'I feel so alone and scared without my mom here. The house is so big, and no one can protect me. I feel insecure.'

"Lawrence, did something happen? You sound blue," concern filled Cherry's voice as she spoke. 'He must be in some sort of trouble, ' she said to herself.

"Mom, do you think there are poor stud

and attitude towards life. I am proud of my mom, and she's the greatest.'

"Lawrence, be a good boy, and take care of yourself, okay?" Cherry continued,"If your friend is in trouble, you can offer a hand to him. Your dad and I will support you as long as you are sure you're doing the right thing."

"Okay Mommy, I see," replied Lawrence adding,"I love you, Mommy." He was overcome with gratitude for his mother's love.

"I love you too, my dear son. Study hard at school and take good care of your sister, will you?" asked Cherry in a motherly tone.

"Yes I will," Lawrence replied. "How are you and dad doing there? How's his work going?" he asked.

"We're good, don't worry. Your dad isn't always busy. We can get out to relax ourselves sometimes," answered Cherry.

"Well, Mom, you and dad get to bed early. I'm getting off the phone since I need to get to sleep now. I need to rest up for school tomorrow," Lawrence said.

"Okay, tuck yourself in. Good night, my dear," Cherry responded.

"Good night, Mommy!" Lawrence returned.
