The man I will never be. Growing up my best friend was a girl named Riley Randall. Riley was a brunette with brown eyes and a really kind heart. Riley’s family was also very wealthy, so I loved going to her house because it was so big. Brion worked very hard and did so much that the rest of the family did not have to work. The stock broker had very dark eyes, and looked very intimidating. But he was actually a joy to be around and seemed to always be in a wonderful mood. He always donated money to my school and he would always give me money for doing chores at his house. Although he was extremely rich and self made, he gave his money to people who needed it.

He was very good at what he did and had a great record. He was not making millions but he was making a good six figures, for a long time.

Growing up Riley lived in the biggest house I have ever seen, and now she lives in an apartment in a rough part of richardson with her mom. The mom never worked a day in her life and had no money when Brion was sent to prison. They had to sell the house, cars, and all furniture. Riley had a california king sized mattress and now Riley and her mom sleep together in a pull out couch. Riley no longer went to my private school because her mom could not afford it, so I saw her less and less. The last time I saw her father was when the three of us grabbed something to eat after school. We were eating with her father for the last time. I remember he was telling Riley how great he thought she was. Looking back on it, I think he knew what was going to happen. Because although he was a good father, he never went out of his way to talk about how great riley was randomly, but that dinner, it's the only thing that came out of his
