The Limo
By Brenda B. Covert
  

1     The sleek black limo with tinted windows turned onto a street that had more potholes than pavement. It pulled up to a small house in need of a fresh coat of paint. People who were loitering on the street watched closely. The driver, who was sporting a dark suit, got out of the stretch limo and strode toward house #116.
 
2     Before he could mount the porch steps, a motherly woman appeared at the screen door. A smile broke out on her face, and she came out to greet the limo driver. Her casual jade green pantsuit and scarlet purse added a splash of color to the dismal surroundings.
 
3     "Let's sit in the back of the car," the woman suggested. "Around here it's not smart to flash money out in the open."
 
4     She was obviously pleased when the man opened the door for her. She slid into the limousine and marveled at the luxury. Black leather seats lined three sides of the car. The fourth side featured a bar with crystal stemware in a long row with an empty wine bucket in the middle. A mirror lined the back of the beverage area. A TV was mounted near the front. A moon roof, a privacy divider, and a CD changer waited for the push of a button. The backseat even had its own climate control!
 
5     "Devon is just going to love this!" she gushed as the driver slipped in beside her and pulled the door shut. "I've been saving the money for a limo all year long. I told Devon that if he worked hard in school and kept his grades up I would hire a limo for his senior prom."
