“And stay out of the tall grass, Jude. It’s crawling with snakes there,” Jude’s grandmother warned.

“Don’t worry, Nana,” Jude shouted, slamming the screen door shut behind him, as he ran out into the backyard.

Nana smiled with a hint of melancholy. She was proud of the way her six year old grandson was taking his loss. It was almost a year ago when his parents Nana’s son and daughter-in-law were killed in a car accident.
