Tales of The Boy

by Merlynn Grey | Score: 5150

A child was born, his mother screaming. She was a childish pharmacist who refused to button her shirt up all the way and constantly flirted with her customers in order to get them to buy things they didn't need. She always wore a blouse, usually white and slightly worn,  and a short skirt. She also wore high heels. Once, she got a package filled with fabrics to make herself new clothes. She loved to sew, and she loved to read. When she wasn't sewing or working or caring for her child, who constantly needed to be covered in lotion as he had unusually dry skin, and therefore the woman needed to keep buying bottles of it, she went to the bookstore with the superficial, transparent even, bookkeeper. She loved the bookkeeper, and when she'd talk about him, the baby's dad would just sit there and cry. The boy's soccer coach, when he eventually started participating in sports, was always happy. Joyous, even. This coach had a statuette made of his daughter that he carried everywhere. He loved this statue, carried it everywhere, cleaned it regularly, and cared for it immensely. He cried when it shattered, the glass of the statue flying everywhere. The coach went to a talented moneylender to get the money to have a new one made. this person
