Arthur got up the next morning and drove to the step mom of Matthew.
It’s very hard for him to investigate because of the way he handle people.
But what to do because he’s the best person for the job.
Arthur inhaled and got down from his car.
I can do this.
It’s just one minute or so.
Arthur got down and walk in the community.
Gosh , it’s about time he put his act together in front of humans.
Arthur saw some girls In the hood getting hard sort of.
A girl came out when she said him coming outta his white car.

Arthur mamma got broke after his father left her for his new woman.
No money to bet.
No money to get hard and she needed to so she sold him as a slave to his step mamma for 250 bucks.
She left him saying he was unlovable and no woman could love him.
The poor thing was hurt.
His own mama abandoned him.
At least Ruth took him in but as her slave.
She beat on him but he didn’t flinch.
But whenever she tells him that he’s unlovable, he pour down the wall of Jericho tears.
You see that man back there?
He has 9 fingers.
After banging Matthew girlfriend and he said Matthew is unlovable so Matthew cut out his pinky.
Okay thanks Arthur told her.

Arthur look at her in disgustment.
He got in his car and sigh.
