A piece from my first short book

Bacon was on the menu this particular morning and a few friends had come over to play. As my mom was frying the bacon, one of my friends asked why are we cooking outside. I simply said our lights off. Young and carefree I did not think it mattered and my mother scolded me for disclosing our personal business. I did not understand why, I guess she was embarrassed and did not want her neighbors to know we were living in the dark.
