SOPHIE My mom’s a prostitute. She calls herself a call girl or an escort, but really she’s a hooker. I resent her. Not because of her profession. In fact, her ‘job’ has kept food on our table and clothes on our backs for years. She’s beautiful and sexy. I’m sure she’s good at what she does. No, I resent her because sometime over the last few years, she’s become a drug addict. I have three younger siblings. I think we all have different fathers, although my mom swears we are all the offspring of some ‘really cool guy’ named Amos.
We never have. But we live next door to one another on Penrose Street. Right next door. Sophie usually walks twenty feet ahead of me on our way home. I’m used to this and it feels comfortable. On days when Sophie stays home sick or…whatever, it feels wrong. I walk home alone and I can never seem to get there fast enough. Today she’s here, though, walking in front of me. Not acknowledging me, which is our unspoken understanding. We act like we don’t know each other around our friends. It keeps things simple.
At school she walks around guarded, paying little attention to the teenage Neanderthals vying for her attention. Kids don’t understand why she’s so quiet and uninterested. They don’t know anything about her. But I do. A leaf falls from one of the tall oaks and brushes against Sophie’s arm before falling to the ground. My eyes stay on her as we near our houses. I like to watch her walk—and not in a sexual way. Don’t get me wrong, she’s got a nice butt. Actually, she’s got nice…everything. But there’s something about how she walks…how she holds herself high, keeps her head straight and knows where she’s going.
