Charlie, or Chip, Potts is the youngest of four, which means, he is often left out of things and told that he “can know when he’s older.” This recurring sentence, ever since he could speak and ask questions, has only made him all the more curious. From moment he could speak he was curious, and having his questions brushed off has only intensified that. It started when his father left, leaving without a word of goodbye or a reason, putting Chip, his brothers, and his mother in debt as he took all their money. This left Chip under the careful watch of his brothers during the day, as his mother worked herself to the bone in order to make a living for her family. Chip watched his mother leave in a rush in the morning, and return exhausted in the evening for years until he was old enough to get a part-time job to help her out.
Chip, to put it simply, is a mama’s boy. He’d do anything for his mother, and it’s been that way since he could crawl. Which earned him more than a little teasing from his brothers, but he didn’t mind. At first it bothered him, but he soon came to grips with the fact that he was a mama’s boy. He’d help his mom out around the house, and save a little more than half his paycheck to help pay for monthly expenses. This, however, hindered him going out and growing up. He spent his time working, and then his time that wasn’t spent working or in school, was spent with his mother — leaving him naive and curious as ever.
When he came across his brothers and their friends smoking weed, he couldn’t help his overwhelming curiosity. Thanks to his extreme naivety, he had no idea weed was a drug. After bombarding the group with endless questions, they finally allowed him to sit and join, getting the youngest Potts high as a kite. But this wasn’t a one time occurrence. Chip came back for more again and again, just wanting to experience the high one more time. Will Chip get it together before he spirals out of hand or give his surname a whole new meaning?
