“Ohana” Short Stories 1 – 2 written and edited by : ) > T Ponder. @tevin_ponder

“Ohana 1″
Drugs made Kimono’smother a living nightmare, she portrayed her complete lack of
mother instinct the day she left Kimono.
Lily: (shouted) “I’m upstairs Clyde!”
Clyde arrived in the doorway of the luxurious bathroom and stares at his
sister like she was his biggest enemyever.
Clyde: “Why would you leave the front door open…. stupid!?
”Lily: “I was in a rush, plus I knew you would be here soon
”Clyde: “You should’ve bathed her if you knew I was on my way….Matter of fact, stop what you’re
doing, give me a towel, and you go shut the front door!”

She hands Clyde the baby, gives him a towel, and walked out of the bathroom. Clyde wiped soap-suds off of Kimono and kissed the top of her soft, frail, head….

Lily was cynically smiling at the blaring television screen.

Clyde: “I’m starting not to trust you Lily, you’ve been unreliable too many times. You
still act like a little kid, why didn’t you shut the front door?”

”Lily: “I did shut MY front door but it got stuffy in here Clyde”
Clyde: “Whatever, I might have to spend my extra savings on a babysitter”
Lily: “I can use that extra money….But whatever do what you want then”

Lily and Lucy are friends at the workplace; Their best gossiping is
done when they discuss guys they like when smoking cigarettes in the back alley of the workplace….Lucy: “That party at Steve’s place last night was the best party eversince….wait! when was that other party we went to and met those sexy guys? (laughs).

Lily grins at Lucy with the most jolly smile, holding a cigarette full of ashes
Lucy: “Anyways, have you called your man since we left his place?
”Lily: “No, he has kids and I kind of hate kids”
Lucy: “He might be worth it” (while blowing smoke passed Lily’s face)
Lily: “Yea, that’s kinda true….he really was sexy”
Lucy: “Hey, I’m older than you girl and sometimes you just gotta get what you can get”
Lily: (smiles stupidly, then looks at her phone)
“We’re late for our shift!” The both of them
rush into the workplace building Clyde
knocked on the front door with heavy-hands…. Lucy answered the door

Clyde: “Who’re you?”
Lucy: “Oh hello I’m Lily’s friend….My name is Lucy, are you her brother?
”Clyde: “Yea” (walks inside of the condo)
Lucy: “Woah, don’t be so mean mister”
Clyde: “I’m here to get my daughter so excuse me”
Lucy: “Where did you just come from?”
Clyde: “Work!” (while standing in the living room staring at Lucy’s pretty face)

Lucy: “Lily is upstairs with baby Kimono”
Clyde: “Thanks for telling me that, I’ll wait until she comes down” (whiletaking a better look at Lucy’s luscious figure)
Lucy: “What do you like to do besides work?”
Clyde; “Nothing else really just work, and take care of Kimono”
Lucy: “Awww, How old are you Clyde?”
Clyde: “32 years old, how about you?
”Lucy: “I’m 40 years old, but just about thirty-two
years old also” (smiles at Clyde)
……..
“Let me in I have to tell Clyde something important honey!
”Kimono: “Like what?!” (in a squeaky little voice)
Lucy: “Adult stuff kiddo, so can you move out of the doorway?
”Kimono: “Why are you wearing those shoes Miss Lucy?

She barged her way inside. Kimono laughed when Lucy stumbled into the living-room.
Lucy: “Dammit Kimono why don’t you help your Dad cleanup?
”Kimono: (replied ina girly squeaky voice)
“Because I was busy working out and doing sit-ups!”
Lucy: “Ok, whatever, where’s Clyde at?
”Kimono: (slightly frowns) “In the room”

Lucy marched into the back room with the smell of perfume and cigarettes

trailing her…. Clyde was posted on the bed with a beer in his hand watchinga movie
Lucy: “Really Clyde?!”
Clyde: “Oh hey….What now Lucy!? ”
Lucy: “You didn’t respond to any of my text messages”
Clyde: “I’ve been posted here waiting for you all day, I thought you might have been coming here earlier?”
Lucy: “Whatever Clyde, I have something to tell you, so turn the movie off and put down your beer Clyde grabs the remote, turned the television off but continues drinking his beer.
Lucy: “Clyde…. I’m pregnant”
Clyde: “Woah really, what’re you gonna do, what’re we gonna do, don’t abort it”
Lucy: “I’m not really sure but I guess I can move in with you and Kimono”

The next day at school Kimono couldn’t focus….When recess came around one of Kimino’s friends gave her a note from a boy that likes her.

Jennifer: “Look what I gooooot!” (smiling from ear to ear)

Kimono: (Slowly says) “Thanks You wrote me another note”
Jennifer: “Nooo, it’s a note from Quincy, the boy that likes
you!!”

Kimono: “I don’t wanna read that note right now….I’m mad Jenifer”
Jennifer:: “Why?”
Kimono: “Because my Dad got a stupid immature lady pregnant!”
Jenifer: “Your gonna be a big sister? I’m jealous.
Kimono: (Smiles then purposefully frowns) “I’ll take that note but can you leave me alone, I need to figure out what I’m gonna do about my new situation”

Jenifer: (laughed) “Okay Kimono don’t burn your apartment down, or do anything crazy (giggles)

When P.E class came around Kimono took out her frustration in a game of Dodgeball
“Great job Kimono!” yelled the P.E teacher Kimono was one of few kids on the Dodgeball court.
Kimono threw her ballson target and took out a bunch of her classmates.
One kid got accidently hurtfrom Kimonos throwing skills.When Kimono got home from school Lucy greeted her when she walked intoher home.

Lucy: “So your not gonna talk to me today!”

Silence dawned in the almost empty apartment. Lucy got up off the couch
and trailed Kimono
.Lucy: “What’s your problem Kimono?”
Kimono throws her backpack on the floor, the apartment seemed to shake infuryKimono: “Your not my Mom Lucy and I want you to remember that!”
Lucy: “If we’re gonna be family your gonna have to listen to me or you mightbe moving out before you turn 18 years old missy”

Kimono: “I’ve been here waaaaay longer than you so we’ll have to see whatmy Dad…. I
mean, Clyyyyde has to say about what you think”
Lucy: “Alright, hopefully he’ll help me fix that smart mouth of yours”

Lucy walked out of Kimonos colorful painted roomSoon after Lucy closed the bedroom
door; Kimono throws one of her school
textbooks- the wooden door panels chipped….Clyde finally arrived at home, he noticed Lucy on the patio smoking another…cigarette, blowing smoke out like a furnace. Lucy turned around and
slowly looked in Clyde’s direction. When she realized that it was him and
not Kimono, she threw her lit cigarette over the patio ledge and sprinted into the living-room.
Clyde: “Why are you still smoking Lucy”
Lucy: “You need to start making Kimono respect me Clyde”
Clyde: “You guys need to get along, or not talk to each other for a while….Kimono is kind of edgy”
(Clyde tried to hold in his smile)
Lucy: “This is serious stuff Clyde, I kept this baby for the sake of you, me….and Kimono”Clyde:
“Yea, yea, yea…. You go drink some water and put your cigarettes onthe kitchen counter”
Clyde walked into Kimonos bedroom where she laid in her bed silentlysleeping like a baby….The dysfunctional family continued to have several miscommunications. Lucy has been stuck in her ways and intentionally feuds with Kimono. Lucy lacks the mother instinct with her unstable attitude and party-going. After Lucygave birth to baby Jimmy she was hazardous to the entire family….. Baby Jimmy got rashes, food poisoned, and Lucy almost burned down their home…. Clyde was always awake, it was like he was a sleep walking working-machine –There were uncountable amount of times Lucy came home late drunk andugly. There was one major happening when Clyde was fed-up with her nonsense- Lucy was hysterical, she threatened to harm Clyde and Kimono.
Clyde didn’t let that slide, and he told Lucy to gather all her cherished items and leave…. However, Lucy threw her wedding-band, knocked over family pictures, took a blackglass jar out of the hallway closet, then walked out of the front door.Days later Lucy and Clyde were officially divorced and separated…. Without Lucy at the apartment, things seemed to be going smoothly in the house.Clyde and the family of three completely! recovered from the divorce.

(Kimono is Twenty-four years old Baby Jimmy is Ten years old,Over the passed few years Kimono has only been to county jail a few times for minor crimes like harassment, and selling marijuana. Kimono knows how to speak, read, and write Japanese. Kimono’s favorite thing to say in Japanese is “Yubi”. Her younger brother Jimmy always gets annoyed when his big-sister comments on things in Japanese.Clyde had to work another overnight shift. Kimono and Jimmy posted at their comfortable apartment. Clyde would always send Kimono random texts messages saying “Don’tcause Jimmy any trouble”
….While jimmy and Kimono sat in the living-room, she couldn’t stop smiling at her phone
Jimmy: ”Has Dad texted you?”
Kimono: “Uh…. No”
Jimmy: “So stop looking at me, loser”
Kimono: “Do your homework then!”

Jimmy slightly frowns then continues writing Jimmy appeared to be focused
but Kimono broke the silence…. “Yubi” Jimmy stopped writing then looked at his sister with a serious face
Kimono: “So whatchya gonna do” (giggles)
Jimmy throws his small textbook at Kimono,The textbook nicely landed on the cushion next to her.
Kimono: “Jimmy! Stop being mean, you know I can karate chop you andbreak you in half like wood” (giggles) while Jimmy tried not to smileJimmy shook his head in disagreement but kept doing his homework. (Kimono’s phone rang)

She quickly grabbed her phone, and runs to the bedroom her and Jimmy
share.

Kimono’s boyfriend: “You can’t come over tonight”
Kimono: “Again! Really? Why?”
Kimono’s boyfriend: “Because I’m busy with alotta stuff I have to do”Kimono: “Oh, whatever I’ll see you later then” (hangs up her phone aggressively)
Before Clyde arrived back home in the early morning, Kimono was woken upby a phone call from Jimmy’s school. Jimmy got suspended from school for pulling the fire alarm
THE LAST FEW SCENES, IN THIS PART OF “OHANA”CAN BE IMPROVED:)> however.
When Jimmy got home he seemed to be excited to tell Kimono what he did.His childish
voice was happy when he explained the details to his big sister. Before
Jimmy could explain the whole story, Kimono cut-em-off, then started to tell Jimmy all the things he shouldn’t be doing at school. The cheezy-grin on Jimmy’s face slowly went away when Kimono reminded him of her experience in jail.Then Clyde arrived home a few minutes after Kimono was done speaking to Jimmy he could already tell that Kimono has gotten the best of Jimmy again.Clyde smiled at both of his children then asked them if they wantedbreakfast…. Jimmy leapt off the couch and ran toward the bedroom to put ona shirt. Kimono trailed Jimmy into their room.Kimono turned off her cell phone,tossed it on the floor.And walked out of the door with her Dad and Jimmy.

Note from the Author : )>
My Short story is finished as Part Two. I feel this work of literature is enough for what it is in the genre #drama #romance #thriller.

“Ohana 2”
Clyde, Kimono, and Jimmy moved to a new apartment on the other side of Town. Lucy became a lost memory to the Family of three, not only because of her own negativity; but the kid Jimmy kept smiles on the faces of his family and friends. Sometimes without trying and sometimes on purpose with his overly active fun behavior. Kimono stormed into the Apartment after getting out of her boyfriend’s car. Jimmy was in the living-room watching a movie eating Popcorn and drinking soda. He noticed the facial expression on his sister and started to tease her by throwing pieces of Popcorn at her.

Jimmy: “I thought I was having the house to myself tonight….but nooo” (slightly smiling)Kimono frowns then a forced smile came across her face.

Jimmy: “Why are you mad anyway sis?

Kimono: “Because my boyfriend won’t stop doing drugs….and selling drugs….AND don’t tell anybody Jimmy, not even any of your little friends from the Sports team.”

Jimmy looked at his sister Kimono with the most surprised face, like he discovered something that he’s been curious about.
Jimmy: “Well….I already told Dad that you have been acting weird lately.”
Kimono: “You need to stop lying! And text Dad NOW and tell him you were joking”
Jimmy: “Nope, can’t do it”
Kimono grabbbed her bags and walked into her room. Jimmy stayed in the living-room and fell asleep….The verynext morning Jimmy wasn’t woken up by Clyde like usual, but to the chirping and beeping of his sister’s phone….Jimmy walked into her room and answered her phone.”Babe”

Jimmy: “Nope, this is her brother”
“Give Kimono the phone Jimmy this is important man”
Jimmy: “She’s asleep man!”
“TELL HER I’m outside waiting for her!”
(hangs up) Jimmy was so mad that he grabbed a kitchen knife and headed out of the door. Before he turned the doorknob, Kimono shouted at Jimmy.
Kimono: “Stay out of my business! He can hurt you even with that!”
Jimmy stormed back into the kitchen
Jimmy: “Fine then leave with that creepy guy again….your creepy too Kimono its 4:00 in the morning.”

Kimono tried to hug her little brother but he pushed her away. Kimono
causally walked out of the Apartment.Jimmy got out of School, Clyde, his
new Wife Kassandra and Jimmy sat in the living room together watching
Television and drinking sodas….Clydes phone rang and broke through the sounds of the Television Show. Clyde answered the phone like normal.
“Hello, this is detective Irvin Tibbs I have your daughter Kimono in custody for serious charges that has to do with Drugs, I can’t explain more but you should meet her at the local Jail in about 12 hours” Everyone in the living-roomed was frightened the way Clyde’s face had lost all emotion instantly….Clyde’s Wife Kassandra shouted for Clyde to slow down, as he was putting on clothes frantically.Clyde: “Kimono is in Jail! and not like before.”
Jimmy: “WOW!”
Clyde: “Get in the car with me or stay!” (as Clyde walked out of the Apartment) Jimmy stayed at Home while his Mom and Dad went to figure out what happened with Kimono….Minutes passed, Hours passed, Jimmy realized his Sister in an Hourglass….Jimmy couldn’t figure out what to do after he placed the same knife back into the kitchen-drawer….he decided to continue a drawing that he started when he was at School. The silent rooms seemed full of the noise of his Pencil. Jimmy fell asleep, with his face on his work of Art, at the miniature table in his room. Kassandra woke Jimmy out of sleep at 5:00 in the morning to tell him the news about Kimono.
Jimmy: “5 to 10 Years in Jail???? She didn’t do anything!”
Kassandra: “She didn’t do anything in front of us.”
Jimmy started to cry and Kassandra went to get him hot chocolate….she placed the warm cup
on the small table.The next few weeks at school, all Jimmy could do was
make Art, and write tiny-little hateful words about Kimono’s boyfriend….who
is in jail for 15 to 20 years.Jimmy
visited Kimono in Jail for the second
time, she wasn’t as stubborn, strong-
willed, nor did she tease him….Kimono
vented to Jimmy about how she had
secrets, how she wished she could wear any clothes but the clothes she
had on. The third time Jimmy visited
Kimono, he talked more.The fourth
time Jimmy visited Kimono he gave
her several drawings that he made and
she was impressed. The fifth time
Jimmy visited Kimono, she told him
that mostly all of the girls loves his Art and had a small list of
people who wanted Art from him….
when the visit was over, Jimmy, Clyde,
and Kassandra, picked up fast food.
Soon as they got Home Jimmy went to
his room, shut the door, and started
Drawing once again. Years passed
and Jimmy didn’t get into any trouble.

His Senior Year of High School one of the Teachers found one of Jimmy’s
drawings laying in the Hallway; the
Teacher was amazed. One day on
Jimmy’s route to his first class, an
older voice shouted “hey kid!” Jimmy
turned to see who was yelling.

A well-dressed man was holding a piece of
paper. “I want to give you 2,000 Dollars for this work of Art that I found of yours”

Jimmy was shocked and amazed.Jimmy: “Your lying, are you?”

“No, actually here is 1,000 Dollars in Cash, and I have a check I will write in your name?”Jimmy:
“Yessss, okay that Art is yours!” “I want to stay in touch with you, so here’s my information and call me anytime” (he hands Jimmy a card with his information, and a brownbag with

money and a well written check) After

School was over Jimmy rushed Home

and called the phone number and left

a message:”Hello again Sir, I have

about 300 Hundred drawings I want

you to see, you can call me back, or I’ll

call you” (hangs up) Months passed

and Jimmy is well done with Schooling,

Summer was hot, and Jimmy started

to become more normal, although he

missed Kimono greatly….READ THE FINISHING SECTION WITH PURCHASE OF “Temperature of art” located at http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/Tponderpublishing
