eighth grade. I had a couple close friends over to spend the night and have a
good time. It was a typical friday night for us, We played games, watched movies
and ate junk food like any normal 12 and 13 year olds would do. We stayed up
till the early morning hours just laughing as if the world were perfect and
never going to stop. When we finally woke up and came out into the kitchen for
breakfast I saw my mom sitting at the edge of the table, dad standing behind her
chair and their good friends sitting at the table as well. I remember the looks
on all of their faces just before the tears started to stream down their cheeks.
Mom muttered that something terrible had happened and they needed to tell me. I
immediately got weak in the knees and felt a hole in my stomach start tearing, I
started crying and asked where my dog Lady was. They proceeded to tell me it was
not Lady, she was fine, but my God sister had been in a car accident and had
passed away. I remember turning blankly and walking back into my room where
Sirius satelite was playing the song "Break Away" by Kelly Clarkson, my favorite
song at the time. I laid on my bed, face in pillow, crying for hours that day.
We were like distant sisters, always had fun together, and she was gone. It was
the last time I celebrated my birthday with friends, it was the last time I
cared about my birthday and it was when I realized never take the ones you love
for granted. Yesterday was the 7 year anniversary of her death, today is the day
I found out about her death. I still miss her to this day. Words can not
describe how I feel about it all.
