Apartment once shared by Emma and Rosie Harris, now just Rosie and five-year-old Mitchell.

Small apartment, two bedroom, one bathroom, with living area. The living area has the kitchen, dining room, and living room combined.

((Note, on page 4, this thread changes to a new apartment. The new apartment posts start after the big bold OoC comment.))

She looked at Emmeline for a moment. "No...she's not breathing." Grabbing the sheet she moved it over the body, covering it from sight. "Oh God...I...I told her to find a different job...I told her that her body couldn't take it..."

She paused and collapsed onto the foot of the bed. "Years ago she could take all of the abuse...but...but after Mitchell..." She couldn't even finish.

He patted her shoulder. She was to nice, he had to make an exit.

(The guy and the FBI guy are two differet people but I could make them one. He could come to look at the murder or something...But am really toying with a new Family.)

"Au...aunt Rosie?" Mitch asked. "What's wrong with Emmie?"

Rosie looked over at Mitch and stood up. "Oh Mitch...I..." She hesitated, unsure of how to continue. "Do you want to go get something to eat at the diner down the street?" Anything to distract him from the disaster in the bedroom.

'Oh Emmeline, I told you. Why didn't you listen to me? You said you would be there for Mitch. How am I supposed to care for him alone? He needs his mother. You should have listened. What am I going to do without you?'

Geno stooped down and gave the boy a handball from his pocket. 'Why don't you play with this?"

Mitch looked at Rosie and waited for her nod before he took the handball and ran out of the bedroom area to the living area.

Rosie looked at Geno. "Thank you for that," she said softly. For a moment she sat silent, trying to compose herself. "How...how did you know Emmeline?"

(Sent one back.

Rosie let out a shaky breath. "She...she seemed perfectly fine when Mitch and I left on Friday....I...I never imagined that I would come back...to this."

"How 'bout I just make sure you and the little one are alright 'till ya get settled?" he said. "Was that her boy?"

She looked up at him. "I...I wouldn't want to trouble you, really." She glanced over at Emma's body then back again, blinking back tears. Slowly she nodded. "Yes."

He nodded solemly. "It's goin' to be okay."

"How...how is it going to be okay? My little sister...is...is gone."

He moved his arms out to offer a hug. "I don't know. It.. was my fault if only I hadn't been so bewildered I could of helped."

She looked at him. "How could you have helped?"

He shook his head not knowing.

Her head fell into her hands as she tried to keep herself calm. She needed to get through this, for Mitchell.

He watched her, unsure of what to do or say.

After a moment she looked at him. "I...I don't think I can raise Mitch by myself."

"No," he simply said. "I'll make sure you got enough to live.."

"Why...why would you do that? You don't know me," she answered.

"true but I can't let Emmie's sister go naked and hungry."

"It wouldn't be the first time," she commented. "It's Mitch I worry about. I need to keep working to support him, but I always had Emma to watch him while I was working. I...I can't leave him alone."

He rubbed his chin, thinking. “I work for a family that imports flowers from Italy (most Families had a lageit trade as a cover-up) If you can think of a better one change it) I bet they could use extra help; they would certainly put you and the boy up.”

Rosie shook her head. "I...I really shouldn't impose like that. I know practically nothing about you...or this family you work for. It wouldn't be proper."

((Hey...do you want to make that other family??? I want to get back to RPing with Sammy))

“Well why don’t I introduce you to them?” he said. “You’ll just have to put your trust in me.”

(Will get rolling! *blows balloons )

"How much trust should I put in someone I've just met?" she countered. "Someone whose name I don't even know?"

"Geno," he said. "I just try to help people when they need it the most."

(How big (as far as children should I make it.)
