Jake was a young 19-year-old boy who was attending Gains College to become a cop like his father, he came home on the weekends to see his family but most of all see is love of his life Kenya. He had just gotten out of a brutal test in which he spent the whole night studying for. He was a straight A student and had high ambitions for himself and his future wife Kenya who was 18 in her final year of high school. Jake meet her in his sophomore year of high school and she was a freshmen. It was love a first sight he asked her out two days after her and her family had moved to their small town of Westerville. He got into his brand new 2007 ford mustang in which was a gift from the town as a graduation present. Jakes father was chief of police and had been for the last 35 years, everyone in the town watched Jake grow up and grow into the pressure of being the chief’s son who also was the mayor of the town due to his ability to govern. Jake was the towns pride and joy he had excelled in sports, academics, church and marksmanship. He turned the key in the ignition and the car started up. His cell phone rang, he looked around for it and then remembered it was in his coat pocket he pulled it out and answered it.
 
“Hey there beautiful” he heard one the phone his face split into a major grin.
 
“Hey there flawless diamond” he replied to the girl who is known as Kenya.
 
“I was just wanting to call and tell you I love you and cant wait for you to get her this evening, my mom and dad said we could have the house tonight but you have to be out by 11 pm that is when they get back from bowling. But anyways how did your test go” Kenya said in her golden angel like voice.
“it went uhh.. lets just say it went.” Said Jake with a chuckle in his voice.
 
“Has I finally happened did my star fail a test” said Kenya in a joking matter.
 
“Nah I aced it, all it took was some of my ninja skills” said jake as he buckled up.
“hehe you are a goof ball with your talk about ninja skills you know that.” Replied Kenya who then started to change the subject to how her schooling went that day. Jake pulled onto the highway and started down I-54 towards there town. He loved to her Kenya talk about how the peep rallies went and that there was going to be one that night. He was sleepy and decided it was good to talk to her while he drove home it would help keep him alert. Finally his battery low sign came on and he told her that he had to go so the got off the phone.
 
Jake pulled into his driveway it was late about 9 O’clock he got out of his car and locked it. He walked up to the door find his mother standing there arms stretched out wide he hugged her. “Aww Jake you are home its so nice to have you here on the weekends.” Said his mother Jessica he heard his father John in the front room yelling at the T.V that could only mean one thing our team was losing. Jake squeezed past his mom and into the front room.
“What’s the score pops” he said as he sat on the couch next to his father who was in his chair.
“Damn colts are up 7 points” said Jakes father.
“Dad that Isn’t nothing we both know the Seahawks always pull out in the 4th quarter.” Jake said looking at an amazing 45 yard field goal.

“Your ma made so beef stew and homemade rolls you should go eat some it is good.” Said my dad and when he says that moms cooking is good he means that it is always good. He used to joke around with her when they were younger saying he only married her for her famous cooking. He got up and went into the kitchen and then told my mother that He was going to Kenya’s house tomorrow night and if it was okay if she came to Sunday dinner with them and that he would pay for her.
“Yes and no” his mother said, handing him a heaping bowl of beef stew and put to giant rolls ontop of it.
