Summary: Nobody would ever imagine to call him responsible, but he does right by his little sister.

He has to wake her up far too early. Her elementary school doesn't start class until an hour after his high school, but Mom has to go to work and he has to go to school and well, she has to get up sometime.

She's such a grump in the mornings. "Can't I have a baby-sitter?" she asks, and her voice is still sleep-rough and he tries not to laugh at her. She has to be the only fifth-grader who wants a baby-sitter in the mornings. But he ruffles up her hair and tells her to put on her socks.

Nobody would ever imagine to call him responsible, but he does right by his little sister. He pours her a bowl of cereal while eating his own breakfast of whatever he can find, leftover sandwiches, mashed potatoes, corn cake, beer. She comes stomping down the stairs and he switches on the TV set for her, turns it to the cartoons. She eats her cereal and he puts some stuff in a brown lunch bag for her, just a peanut butter sandwich and some crackers and a piece of the corn cake, but it's enough.

No, maybe not quite. He rips a sheet of paper off Mom's memo notepad and scribbles a quick note. It's sarcastic, flippant, funny, absolutely him; and he signs it "Two-Bit" with a big messy doodled heart. And he folds it over and slips it in the lunch bag and rolls down the top.

"Let's see if I make it to my first class," he howls, grabbing his bookbag and tearing for the door. "Don't miss your bus and don't you dare forget your lunch!"
