As i was trying to run away my life and my mind it kept replaying one message and one scene that i didnt want to see "What had happened to my parents?". When I came home from school they were just there lying on the kitchen floor blood all around them. I screamed and screamed untill my neighboor came round and saw them. She called the police and hugged me untill they came, it was horrible having to see that image in my mind all the while they were asking me questions. I hated it i wished they would just leave me alone. Linda had taken me in. This my story of how my life ended and how it began again.
I woke up with sweat beading down my face, I had the same nightmare again. Walking in on my parents dead, the same images had haunted me for the last 3 months. I was getting help for it, after 10 minutes of shaking the images out of my head my phone rang. I looked at the caller id, it was my grandma " hey grandma, how are you?" i said as i was sitting up.
"hey Angel, your 16th birthday is coming up in a few weeks and i was wondering if you would like to come and live with me?" go and live with her? was she serious? "Are you serious grandma? i mean with whats gone on, i didnt think you liked me" i said ashamed that i had to say it out loud.
i heard her take a sharp breath in, it didnt sound good.
" of course i like you, your my only granddaughter and i know its not your fault that my daughter and son-in-law had died, it was just a freak acident, the police have a fairly good idea who done it anyway. anyway what do you think? would you like to come and live with me?"
i didnt know what to say to her. i would love to but i dont want ot hurt linda's feeling's i mean she took me in when all seemed lost, i count her as my aunt
" ermm grandma does linda know that you've asked me this? i mean i would love to come and live with you to get away from the place where it happened, but i dont wanna hurt her feelings......"
she started laughing so i couldnt finish what i was saying to her.
"grandma why are you laughing?"
it made me happy hearing someone else laugh in the house i live in there wasnt much laughfter and when there was laughter it was faked.
"i guess i left one bit out," she said whilst still chuckling "i asked linda to come aswell. i know how found you've become of her almost like an aunty you love her and i wouldnt want to take that away from you"
okay this was a little bit weird, i guess that was why linda was acting strangely around me last night. i thought it was because of what happened to my parent a short while ago, but it seems like i got that bit wrong. i started laughing actually laughing it felt good, grandma joined in with me.
"okay okay grandm, what did linda say?" i said
"well" she said stalling "she said....."
