Compton isn't the best place to live but you get used to it after you have lived there your whole life. I miss my dog bubbles, it's been only 5 months since bubbles died.

My family and I were just sitting in the living room when all of a sudden Bubbles ran and jumped out of the window and fell 5 stories to his death.

When we had an earthquake you could tell the cat didn't take it that well, he only slept 22 hours that day. Well how about a dog, I don't think so, I haven't had the best of luck with dogs.

We went next door to the Jewerly store and looked around.

Mocha screamed again except this time louder."Damn Ice Mocha didn't I just tell you five minutes ago not to scream, one more time and you'll be a bald Mocha. Lucky for you though I have an extra $600.00 dollars on me so you can have it." Mocha smiled and did a backflip off the counter and ran over and started hugging my leg. I picked him up and kissed him on the lips."Your welcome Boy!!" The jewler handed me the chain and I put it on Mocha."I'm tired Mocha, lets go home." Mocha jumped on my shoulder and we started on our way home. It seemed to take hours but we were just around the corner of my apartment so it took a minute or two. When I entered the house...
