Andy and Sue are like most parents who had had to deal with there son, that just turned 17, wanting to leave home. Barny wanted to move out and live with his friend Nathan who was 18. Mom and dad went out to eat so they could discuss this privately.

Andy tall man with black hair, who was in his mid 50's, said to his wife who also is tall and has black hair, "I think our son will be ok."

Sue who worried about the littlest things said, "I don't know, he is still a baby."

Andy had a look of confidence on his face, "He is a very smart boy, and he has always done well in school. He has always has been very responsible. For being a senior in high school he's mature."

A worried look came over Sue's face, "How is he going to survive?"

"He's been working at the department store for two years while still going to school. He has a good job his boss likes him. He has manages to keep up with his studies and is a straight A student," said Andy.

Sue looked at her husband and grinned, "I don't know about this?"

"He has known Nathan since he has been five they are both fine Christian boys. Worse case thing that can happen is he could move back home," as Andy's voice sounded like he was at peace.

Sue's face changed and she started to smile, "Maybe your right."

"Just remember the Bible says that he will never leave you or forsake you. I think that can apply to our son," as Andy smiled.

The two of them prayed and a week later Barny moved out.

These are wise parents. I would suggest working on showing not telling in your writing. It will make the narrative stronger.

Check out the FW message boards and Jan's Master class for lots of great writing info. http://www.faithwriters.com/Boards/phpBB2/viewforum.php?f=67

This is a good story that could be greatly improved with Seema's suggestions. Keep working at it!
