Trying: Feif, Round 1, Part 1

Julio Feif is 22, Carla Feif is 1

Julio sighed as he scrubbed the counter again.  Who knew that having your own house could be so hard?  He had married young, straight out of high school in fact, and he had never needed to do housework.  But now she had left him, with just little Carla, alone, and without any help.  It was hard.  Sometimes he doesn’t know why he does it.

But then he looks into her face, into her starry blue eyes, and he knows why.  Because of her.  She is perfect.  She is all he needs.  And that is why he does it.

He loves watching her play with her food.  He’s in the culinary career, as a dishwasher, but he doesn’t think Carla will go down this route.  She’s just not that neat of an eater.

He loves to watch her bang away on her toy xylophone.  She’s got a real knack for it, and Julio is excited about that.  Maybe she’ll get opportunities he never had.

It pains him when he has to go to work, has to leave Carla alone with a nanny.  But the nanny is good, and Carla likes her, so he supposes all is well.

And plus, when he gets back home, there’s always time for one more game of Peekaboo.  And that is why he does what he does.  That is why he never gives up.  That is why he tries.

    What a hard time for Julio, he is sweet with Carla. I hope things work out well with them down the road. It’d be hard work to do the solo gig. Carla sure is a cutie-pie!
