“You will when you grow a little bigger and can pull a bowstring.”
#CleanWIP Clint slipped into the kitchen where Alissia was setting the table. The aroma of beef roast and vegetables tantalized his nostrils. His little sister’s cooking skills equaled Ma’s. She’d make someone a good–.— Laurean Brooks (@Laurean2) January 9, 2020
