Our stories today called Preclude. It was written by Eager Valentines Smith, here is Kate Glad with the story.

Salina Joe Hutshel was burn in the cabin that had two rooms, one small window and a dirt floor. Her parents Shock and Marty Hutshel built the little house in one day with the help of their families and friends.

Salina Joe began to talk when she was one year old. By the time she was seven, her parents couldn’t answer any of her questions. Salina Joe’s big black eyes were full of curiosity, but her mind stayed hungry. Her parents sent her to school for six months. They took her out as soon as she could read and write. Her parents had never learnt.

Salina had to work on farm. She plant corn and sweet potatoes in the hard red earth. She fed the cows and built the fences. She cleaned the cabin and chopped wood. She did all the cooking and washed all the clothes. Her parents spent most of their time with the uncles, aunts and cousins in the family who live nearby. All the Hutshels were like Salina Joe’s parents. They couldn’t read and write. They didn’t like to work and they never took bath.

One Sunday, when Salina Joe Hutshel was sixteen years old, her parents took her to the town of East View. As they walked downstreet Salina Joe heared someone behind her whisper”Those are part of Hutshel family. They are all dirty lazy people who never work.”

A few days later, Salina went there alone to East View. She went into one of the stores, it was only a simple country store, but to Salina Joe it seemed like a wonderful place. She looked at soft ribbons and soft little shoes. Salina Joe had never owned a pair of shoes or a so ribbon.

In the back of store she found a dress. It was made of red carton material with little snow white squares on it. Salina Joe couldn’t stop touching the dress. She asked the dress owner how much the dress cost.

“Five dollars,” he said “but I’ll sell it to you for three.”

That evening after dinner she told her father about the dress.
有些事,我们明知道是错的,也要去坚持,因为不甘心;
有些人,我们明知道是爱的,也要去放弃,因为没结局;
有时候,我们明知道没路了,却还在前行,因为习惯了。
