The Michael Swayne Story V: King of his Castle

The Easter Bunny is coming!

Rate this Entry
There is one person in this world I truly pity, and I want to do everything I can to make his life better. It is Autumn's youngest child, Jesse. He is five years old, and has had his little world thrown every which direction there can be during this last month. First his sister goes to live under the supervision of the State, then his grandmother and big brother moves away, and take Jackson (Carma's dog) with them. Then I move out. Luca, who considered Jesse one of her own children, dies. And all he is left with to help him cope with everything happening is his Mom, who is as dependable as using a Post-It Note for an umbrella during a hurricane, and Ben (the boyfriend) who is a good-for-nothing hoodlum that can't even take care of his own kid(s) let alone someone else's.

Every time I visit, Jesse asks me if I am moving back in with him, and asks why I no longer live with him. It breaks my heart to not be able to tell him the entire story, because he wouldn't be able to understand it if I tried. In a way, I was his older brother, and now he no longer has that. He doesn't have anybody to play with now, and I know how it feels to want to play but can't.

So, I want to do special things for him. Today when I was coming home, I decided to keep some of my paycheck this week so I could buy Jesse some little toys and candy for Easter. I went to the place I bought my bed and picked out some Easter eggs, and some paper grass, and a basket. The best part was that the whole thing only cost me 33 cents. I am supposed to go to the Conaway House tomorrow to bring some milk to the puppies, so I think I will also pick up some candy to fill the eggs, and whatever cute toys I can get for him. I think I saw a store selling kites the other day, and I always loved flying a kite during springtime. Maybe get him some bubbles, and a wand. Just something that can occupy him now that he is an only child.

I know it sounds weird, considering how much I loathed the situation I was in, but I think I miss Joey, Makayla, and Jesse. They weren't truly bad kids. They were very loud, and constantly bothered me, but I do care about them as if they were my own siblings. I worry about Joey and his grades, now that I am not there to tutor him. I worry about Makayla, and wonder how she is doing being unable to see any of her family. But most of all, I worry about Jesse, because he was tossed into this whole situation and not able to fully understand it.

So, I am making an Easter basket for a 5-year-old. I think I should have bought a bigger basket, or smaller eggs. Or I need to take out some of the grass. Because not all of the eggs will fit. I even considered leaving some of the eggs out, but what would I use plastic eggs for? It doesn't matter. I will fill them all with candy, and give them to him. I think he will like it.

Well, that's all for now. I hope to see you around the forums, and until then...
