Hi everyone,

I will tell you a story about a man who lied on some of my uncles and the consequences.

When a few of my uncles were on their way home, one night, they saw Mr. Greenwood, one of Granddaddy's married friends, acting romantic, with a woman who was not his wife. He thought they would tell Granddaddy, but they didn’t. Instead, Mr. Greenwood told Granddaddy, "I saw your boys, the other night, where they shouldn't have been."

After Mr. Greenwood left and Granddaddy told them what Mr. Greenwood said, they tried to get Granddaddy to understand that it was the other way around. He didn’t listen. Immediately, Granddaddy whipped them one-by-one, and they were hurt because he believed Mr. Greenwood’s story, instead of theirs.’

This story continues next time.
