K Y O K I
Apartment 4… on Electric Avenue in a small town called Decatur, lived a family of 7 if not more. In the very family everyone seemed to have their own problems, but was soon solved in one way or another. Except… there seem to be one particular child whose problems only seemed to repeat. No matter how many times one tried to solve it. Curtis Rhodes lived in the apartment with his new profound step mother, Along with four other sibling one of them being his one year younger brother, Chris, And the other three being only related to him by marriage. The other three children belonged to his step mother. Curtis father wasn’t at home too often he had to work a lot to support the new family he had made after divorcing Curtis true mother. Curtis had been holding the grudge of his parents devours against them. Curtis has some idea as of why the divorce happened.
Curtis sat in his room, isolated from everyone in his house. it was all he felt he could really do. He usually spend most of the time there waiting for the days to go by. All he ever did in the room was sleep, do homework, draw or write some kind of story, but most of the time he just seat there day-dreaming. His stepmother had restricted his enjoyment of living. She took his covers, sheets and pillow and threw them away. She did the same for most of his clothes and drawing pad. Curtis could do nothing … his step mother called everyone down for dinner. They were having hot dogs, and like usual Curtis got three hotdogs while anyone else at the table usually got two. Before eating they had to say prayers. “As if praying did anything for anyone” Curtis thought. Curtis was a Christian by the rules of the new household in that very apartment. Everyone had their chats and laughs, but one way or another they would find a way to make some joke out of Curtis. Using the same insults. Rather it was about his appearance or an old habit, He had heard them all, the family was worst then his bullying phase. Though it didn’t stop there… Almost too many times Curtis was blamed for things that he didn’t even do, sometimes Curtis wasn’t even involved in the situation in the first place, and his step mother went with it. all because he made a simple face, when many times you couldn’t tell what Curtis was thinking or feeling just because of his face. Many people thought Curtis was sad or angry because of his facial expression, when there was nothing wrong with him to begin with.
