One day, we found ourselves in the barn together, while Daddy ran to the store to get more nails. Mama had taken the little ones to Grandma's house, and Lenny strolled over to Jade and me. I'd had it and was going to let him know we weren't scared of him and would tell if we had to!
"I'm going to tell Mama and Daddy what you do to us, and they won't think you're such a big deal then!" I shouted right in his face.
"That would be one big mistake, little girls, if either of you say anything about me! I've got my ways, and you'll be real sorry then. Who knows, maybe you'd even like what I've got planned for you. I'm pretty good at what I do." With that, he yanked my arms behind me, kissed me on the neck in a really mean way, and his face showed me he wasn't kidding.
"You're sick, Lenny, and I want you to get your filthy hands off me right now!" I screamed.
In a second, Jade was on him, hitting him as hard as she could on the back with the broom. He yelped in pain, letting go of my hands, and it was then that I took off running as fast as I could to the woods, with Jade right beside me. We left him swearing and shaking the broom at us. It was some sight to see! We laughed, but we were really scared of him, for the first time.
