Excerpt from the book:
Genai grew up in Eagle Hall, St. Michael. Her parents were humble and loving. Always there when someone was hungry or needing money to pay a bill or needing somewhere to sleep. Many evenings she came home from school to find a woman and children at the table eating or someone cleaning up around the house in exchange for food.
Her father was a hard-working man. He was the manager at a manufacturing company for 34 years and was ready to retire. It was the only job he ever had. He was 16 when started as a porter lifting crates onto a truck for delivery and everyone loved him. He studied everything he could get his hands on and worked his way up the ranks. He met Genai’s mother Genine when he was 20 and although she would just smile as she passed by on her way to school, he knew she was meant for him. One day he got up the courage to say hello.
“Good evening Miss, I would like to take you out on a date with your parent’s permission and yours as well.”
“Well then, you can walk me home.”
Genine and Malcom walked and talked for 20 minutes and when they got to her house, there were lots of people there, the police and an ambulance. Genine rushed inside only to find that both her parents were dead. A man desperate for money, climbed the back fence and went into the house not knowing someone was at home. Her mother screamed when she saw him and tried to fend him off, he stabbed her twice and her husband hearing the noise rushed in only to receive multiple stab wounds as well.
At first Malcom didn’t know how to react but when Genine turned and saw him, she rushed back to him and he held her tightly. When everything died down, most of the officers had left and only close neighbours remained, Genine realised she was now alone.
