|Chasity is finally turning 16, everything in the world should be perfect, but that's not the way real life works.|
Chasity felt her head spinning, finally she was turning sixteen. It had seemed like an eternity, but today was the day, she was finally sixteen. It was a magical age, everything changed, and as she sprung out of bed, she knew it was true. Feeling like she was dancing on air, she floated out of her room and into the kitchen. A smile lit her tawny face, freckles dotted her cheeks and nose, she was the perfect picture of teenage innocence. But going into the kitchen was her mistake, she should have stayed in bed, enjoyed sleeping. Her excitement had taken her here on an adventure she should have denied herself. Her mother sat at the table, her face in her hands, everything spelled sadness not the excitement that should have been there. Chasity immediately came crashing down back to earth, what was going on? Why'd her mother look so hurt? 'Mom, what's wrong?' she asked, gingerly touching her shoulder. Where was her dad and where was her brother? Her mother looked up at her, mascara streaking her cheeks, her dark brown eyes were filled with agony. She opened her mouth to speak, but it was futile, instead fresh sobs hiccupped out of her, making Chasity feel little, only a child. She didn't understand, what was the problem? What had made her mom so upset she couldn't speak a word? Then her mother managed to talk, her voice dripping with tears, 'Oh god, I don't know how we're going to make it. Oh god, I'm sorry. Your daddy and Evan, they went to get crispy cremes for our breakfast. But someone wasn't paying attention and ran a red light, they hit your daddy's car. Oh god, no, I... this can't really be happening. Your dad was killed instantly and Evan died on the way to the hospital.' With this message delivered, her mother sank into a broken heap upon the table, her shoulders shaking with relentless cries. The world was spinning for Chasity, it couldn't sit with her, it couldn't really be true. Her dad and Evan were really on their way home, or maybe she just hadn't woken up. That had to be it. Without a word of condolence or grief, she turned and dragged herself back to bed. With a heavy sigh, she sank into her sheets. Maybe when she woke up again, it would all be alright, for it was only a dream. It had to be. Her birthday was going to be magical, she could hardly wait. Tweet
