Feisty. Decent. These two words defined her. She didn’t have much of an education. She just managed to finish grade school. Tia had been born into a good and financially solid family. After her father’s sudden death when she was 9, she went to work for her well-to-do uncles. Tia got up at 5:30 and waited on them like a servant. She was done at 8:30 and hurriedly put on her school uniform. Most of the time she arrived before the school bell rang. She was a good student, but her mind was occupied elsewhere. Book learning could not be as important as helping her mother put food on the table.
