Daddy's gone

Randy and Joe had been best friends ever since they were babies. Their mothers had been friends, and Randy’s father had tried to fill the gaps that Joe’s father had left.

That summer Randy and Joe had been joined by Violet, who they met in class on starting school. Within days the three were inseparable. They spent all their time together, a close knit little unit, running in and out of each others’ houses, turning each of their families into one larger family. Each child had the love of three families, each child felt they had five parents instead of the usual two. But only Joe really needed the love of five parents, his father long gone leaving a deep emptiness that would haunt him forever....
