Raspberry and her mom drive to Odd Jobs house. The place smells like dog poop and needs work to look like a proper home. Dr. Mitchell helps Momma clean the place. Raspberry's mom tells her that she'll stay with Zora for the night. When they arrive, Zora is no longer upset with Raspberry and says she's sorry for the way she acted. The next day, they go see Ja'nae and she tells her that her mom left again. They head back to Zora's house where Raspberry's mom is waitng for them. She tells Raspberry they have a chance to live in Pecan Landings and she will do whatever she can to get them that house.
You been painting?
After all of you left, Odd Job came with a can of paint and helped me put the first coat on. We got a good chance of moving into the house here. This morning Dr. Mitchell took me to a lawyer. We're gonna fight for the right to live here. It won't happen right away, but by the summer, we should call this place home.
I bet Ja'nae and the others wil want to help to.
Blue, with stars on the ceiling
Everything is going to be okay now Raspberry. I have to go but you need to take care of your mom until she feels better.
What do you want the color of your room to be?
Dr. Mitchell said he'd help us paint the place
When you take a shower. we can paint each other's nails if you want. We're girls, we gotta stick together.
It's gonna take a while to make this place something we can be proud of. You'll stay with Zora and Dr. Mitchell for the night and I'll keep working on this house.
But where we gonna live for now?
Well, it's a place to lay our heads. Okay let's go.
I've been on the phone talking to the city trying to get a house in Pecan landings.
Hey Dr. Mitchell, do you want the windows washed or the whole car.
