Life used to be so beautiful...

so full of magic

and possibilities.

I would sit for hours drawing

and dreaming up crazy stories

to tell all my friends.

I thought my stories would

inspire the world,

make it a better place somehow.

I was such a dreamer.

And for a while,

it seemed like all my dreams

were coming true.

Billy was my world,

the man of my dreams.

But how quickly dreams

can be shattered.

That killer didn't

just take Billy's life.

He took mine, too.

The only thing the police knew

was that the killer wore

a red hoodie

and left behind

a mechanic's rag.

They soon gave up their search,

but I could never move on.

What do you do

when you've lost your faith,

your hope, your will to go on?

I used to dream

of telling stories,

but I never dreamed that mine

would end like this.

Oh, my God, no!

No, we doin' this.

So tell me, did you miss her?

I don't hear nothin'.

I know you as hungry as I am.

Out late for a school night.

Come here!

I know you're still there.

And I know you're listening.

I sure could use

some help right now.

No matter what happens to me,

watch over those kids.

Keisha!

She... She got hit!

Miss Crawford?

How is she?

She got banged up pretty good.

Gonna keep her overnight

just to be safe,

but she's gonna be fine.

Have you seen the family?

Someone should be here

any minute.

The police, they're downstairs

waiting for a statement,

but if you got just a second,

she wants to see you.

Hey.

She wanted to tell you

something.

No, no, no, don't wake her.

if she don't get to see you.

Coming tomorrow?

I don't know.

I think so.

How I know you're not playing?

"Samantha Crawford."

Sam.

You can call me Sam.

What's your name?

I'm Macon, and you

just made me a promise.

Well, I guess I did.

So she's okay.

She's gonna be fine.

She's all right.

You a relative, or...

I help look after her.

Miss Evans is

on her way up now.

What's your name, honey?

Joe. Joe Bradford.

Joe? Joe Bradford?

Yes.

It's Sam.

Samantha Thomas.

Sam?

Sam.

How have you been, girl?

I can't believe this.

What are you doing here?

What... Are you okay?

I'm fine. I...

This is the young lady

that brought

the children up here.

You have got to be kidding me,

of all the people.

Those kids yours?

Well, now, that's complicated.

know each other?

This was my best friend

when we were kids.

Oh, come here, girl.

Yes, sir, she's right here.

What is it, 20 years?

Hold on.

Excuse me.

You have

a very impatient detective

waiting for you downstairs.

Okay. Okay.

You got a card

or something, Sam?

Here, I found one.

It's tattered there.

Okay.

She's headed your way.

You come see me.

We got a lot

of catching up to do.

It was good to see you, Joe.

You, too.

You come see me now.

I will.

Everyone!

This is Joe Bradford.

His grandmother

is the new janitor.

Let's all make him

feel welcome.

Run along and find a seat.

Gosh, look at that Afro.

Seat's taken.

What you got?

Got something to trade?

Do you like Jell-O?

Yeah.

How about my Jell-O

for your potato chips?

Okay.

And, uh, maybe we can

trade again tomorrow?

Okay, it's a deal.

Here she comes.

Aah!

Who tripped her?

She's your girlfriend.

Why don't you make her

tell you, coon?

I'm gonna tell you this once,

and I'm gonna talk real slow,

so you can understand me.

It'll be a cold day

in Jamaica for some...

Fight, fight, fight, fight!

Fight, fight, fight, fight!

Fight, fight, fight,

fight, fight!

See you at lunch tomorrow.

Yeah.

Don't forget my 'tater chips.

Sam.

Hey, Cricket.

How's my girl?

Strange day today, huh?
