“So, our church member told us that okay, you guys can move into the house. We did not know all along that she was owing rent. And we had a deadline. My dad already signed a tenancy with the landlord because the landlady was going crazy.
“So, five days before [the expiration of the deadline], we moved and then we got to the [our church member’s] house. It was still a ‘face-me-I-face-you’. And then I think one of the tenants called the landlord like, ‘Yo, somebody just moved into your house.’ And then the landlord came and threw our things out. We started begging. I was f*cking depressed looking at my mom and dad being down in front of a normal man.
