I loved your story! Yeah bras suck! I remember when I was 9 years old and my father took me to Walmart. Before we got out of the car he noticed I wasn't a bra (I was a little kid) and he said “I’m not taking you out in public like that. That’s disgusting!”. At the time I didn’t think nipples showing through the shirt was wrong and I told him bras hurt (because they do) and then I started crying😆. He drove me back home and dropped me off while he went to Walmart. When he came back home he screamed “never do that again! Wear a bra”. As an adult I only wear a bra half the time 😆 So I know how you feel with the bra thing.
Also, your neighborhood sounds badass. First there’s an old lady with a Doberman then there’s an old lady with a wolf. I wouldn’t want to screw around in that neighborhood. In your story I noticed that you felt quite a bit of peer pressure. Everybody wants to be accepted into some group. That’s only human.
Here is my theory of what happened to Mitch. Maybe Mitch tried to break into her house, she had a heart attack and died, and he got taken away to juivie for breaking and entering.
Also I want to say that I’m thankful for that wolf (she protected you from that creepy dude). About the wolves being legal, I know there is pretty much no restrictions with exotic animals in Alabama,Winsconsin and Ohio. Places like Florida and Louisiana have only a tiny bit of restrictions. I know a dude that has a pet fox. That’s a cool alternative to a wolf.States near California have heavy restrictions for exotic animals.
