My parents couldn't afford vitamins so my mother would put a dirty cheerio in our mouth every morning and say a prayer for us. We never went to church, my mother just adopted the things she liked from all religions. They got the house for a steal because it was supposedly haunted and there were things that just couldn't be explained like no matter what you did the house wouldn't get above 68 degrees. None of my friends would come over to play much less spend the night and it didn't help when my father bought that Hearse for next to nothing. My mother was born on Halloween but the only kids that came to our door were those on a dare which made dad happy because he never had to buy candy. Ours was the only house on plague street and the mail man wouldn't even slow down, my father would smile as the bills blew away in the wind.
