Saturday evening Elenor was with her friend Faleene. Faleene had three kids but all her kids were older. They use to babysit us when my mother didn't want us to be at home by ourselves. Faleene was her crazy blond friend. She was black but she had blond hair and loved to party. Faleene's brother had a band name Confusion. Where ever the band was they were right there no matter how far or close they were. They were a good band and if you ever needed a band for a wedding or a party they were the band to have.
Falene and Elenor were running buddies for sure they went to every hot party, every club and every concert. They did everything together they even chased men together; they spied on their husbands and boyfriends together. When you seen one you seen the other. My mother always blamed Faleene for getting her in trouble. They would laugh and joke and I would always hear my mother say "if it wasn't for you I wouldn't have gotten in this mess." Midnight on a Wednesday night my mother and Faleene were talking on the phone and she had gotten wind that Elenor's male friend Terry was cheating and he had just been spotted going in the woman's house that lived two houses down from Faleene's sister. Faleene could always talk Elenor into doing anything. At first Elenor wasn't sure if she should go, but then she said "yeah girl come get me and let's ride and catch a nigga in the act." They laughed and talked some more and then hung up the phone. Fifteen minutes later Faleene was at Elenor's picking her up so they could ride out. Elenor didn't want to leave us at home so she decided to wake us up so that we could go with them. My sisters were sleep and I couldn't go back to sleep because I was so angry at her, that she would wake us up in the middle of the night to go see what some nigga was doing. They sat down the street for hours and watched the house he was seen going in, with binoculars that Faleene always kept in her glove compartment. No matter what they were doing or where they were at they were always ready for whatever. About three or four o'clock in the morning they seen Terry come out the house and kiss the lady he was with that night. Faleene was taking pictures and Elenor decided to walk up on him to let him know he was busted. While she was walking down the street to where Terry had parked his car a thought crossed her mind. Elenor seen the brick lying on the curb, she picked it up and when she reached the car she threw the brick through his windshield. When she saw the window break she turned away and started walking back to the car. Terry heard the loud bang and went to the street to see what the loud bang that he had just heard was. At first he thought that someone had just had a car accident and then he thought well maybe someone was drunk and ran into the stop sign again. In the hood that kind of stuff happened all the time along with all the gun shots. Terry looked down the street and seen that he had a brick in his windshield. He started running down the street to his car and by the time he got to his car Elenor was getting in the car. They drove passed him waved and laughed. Elenor had her window down and while they were driving by she laughed and said "ask the bitch you were just with to get your window fixed." Elenor and Faleene laughed so hard at the look on his face when he realized he was busted. They drove off laughing like they had just done their job. They laughed and talked about what had just gone down all the way home.
