I thought i had a perfect life
I was 14 years old. I had a beautiful mother and a brother. He was just amazing. The kind you can call your best friend.
My mother was pregnant, 5 months into the pregnancy. My father died. Things got hard without the support from him going to work. I was old enough to work, and so was my brother.
We talked one night. He told me we need to look after one another, so we started working at McDonalds. I met a guy there. We started dating. We kept up with the bills and we helped support my mum. We bought baby things. My mum thanked us both. I was happy. We welcomed a beautiful baby girl into the world. I spent every moment with this girl. I love her with all my might.
My mother got a call from the hospital one night and they said my baby sister had an illness that they didn't know of. She had 2 years to live. She spent every minute of her life in that hospital, in and out.
One day my mum told me to go out with my friends. I decided to go out with this guy i was seeing. When i got home around 5pm i walked in the house. My brother was eating. I asked him where my sister and mum were. He said they have gone out. I smiled and went into my room. I went on Facebook. Hours passed by quickly. It was then 11pm. I didn't even hear the phone ring. I went downstairs and my brother had his head in his hands. I went to him and asked him what's wrong. He said mum rang. I listened. She passed away. Our sister is gone, forever. I screamed and cried. He hugged me. My baby sister wasn't coming home tonight. We buried her next to my dad. I prayed that night, i could hear her. I loved her.
4 months later we're doing our thing again. I was invited to a party. My brother came along. When we were there he had a punch on with another dude. All i remember was a knife come out and go up into my brother's chest. I screamed. Guys came rushing and carried me away. I ran back to my brother lying on the floor. He looked at me and said "I said i would protect you at any time." I then noticed the guy holding the knife was the same guy i was seeing. He left and hasn't been heard from since.
I stayed with him at the hospital. My mum arrived. My brother went on life support. 2 days passed. He still hadn't woken up. The doctors asked me to turn it off. I cried and thought about it. I turned it off. He went pale right away. I ran to my mum and hugged her. We buried him next to my dad and sister.
2 weeks passed and me and my mum had dinner together at my house. I packed my brother's and sister's things and put them away. My mum looked into my eyes and said "I can't live like this babe. I gotta go see what's happening with them." I said "If you leave me, i have no choice but to go with you." She smiled.
In the morning i came downstairs smiling i had a nice dress on. I was going to ask my mum if we could go to the beach. But i found a note that read "Baby, don't follow me. It's a stupid thing, but you need to remember we are all here for you. Live our memories hunnie, but if you ever ever ever see a flower with just 4 petals on it i'm here. I love you heaps." I dropped it and ran up to her room. She was hanging. I buried her next to my brother.
I knew that i wouldn't have to worry about them now. They're safe in heaven. One day i was walking home. I looked to the ground. Just then i felt a gust of wind. Flying past me i saw a flower just by itself, with 4 petals on it. I said "Hi Mum".
That's my story. Yes it's real. I may not seem sad, but as i said, they're safe.
