Abenie and her family were sitting in the dining room after they finished eating, and that was exactly when Abenie's father said he had cancer and could die really soon.
Abeni's father wanted to talk to her privatly. He wanted to tell her how much he loves her and he wants her to take care of their family, since she was so strong in all ways posible. He also wanted his funeral to be fun, he wanted his funeral to be at the grand opening of ther new salon.
Abeni, her sister Noee, and her mom, bought the salon. They cleaned it up, setup a table filled with food, and made sure eveything was ready for the grand opening of their new salon and their fathers funeral. They invited all the people they knew and it was also open to public.
A lot of people came to the funeral/grand opening, but most people didn't even know it was a funeral. But when Mama Evans walked up to the stage to say something about her hustband, people started to figure out it was a funeral. Eveyone payed their repects and Curtis, a young soldier wanted to say somethings about Abenie's father.
Curtis was really close to Abenie's father. Her father taught him a lot and gave him advice on how to protect himself and make something good of his life. Abenie's dad was like family to Curtis even though he wasn't as close with the rest of his family. He still cared and wanted to say something good about Abenie's fdather.
After the funeral, Abenie, Noee, and their mom walked home ready to get a good load of sleep.
