Rain Check


current time:

The rains cut short everyone’s plans. Mary Ngobwene had tired of working in the fields anyway, but she was sad when they called off the next week of work. Her friend needed the work very badly. They had to travel out right away, but their truck was broken. Mary argued with her friend about who was responsible, but her friend just told her to shut up and fix up the truck. Finally they got it fixed, and now they are on the move again, to the next farm, hoping for work.
