Laughing, I turn the television off and holler. “It’s time to go, Justin!
You’re going to be late for school.”
He darts around the corner, skidding into a wall as he tugs on his
shoes and coat at almost the same time. “I’m coming, Mom!
I sigh and hold my hands up, bracing him so he doesn’t fall to the ground.
“What were you doing? Playing one of those silly games and you lost track
He flushes and his big, brown eyes drop to the floor. “I’m sorry, Mom. I
know I’m not supposed to play before school.”
It takes everything in me not to reach out and hug him. But instead I step
back and cross my arms over my chest. “And why don’t we play games

Justin’s father is a deadbeat that’s never paid a dime for his son. He pretty
much just upped and disappeared after our divorce. I have no idea where he is
and according to the courts, he’s contested the minimum child support he was
ordered to pay and until they take him back to court when they find him
again, since he keeps disappearing, I’m pretty much up shit creek for help.
That’s why this promotion is so important. I need that money to take care
of my baby and all the little things that life keeps throwing at me.
