One Person Can Make A Difference

World peace, something that nearly every human being wants. People to care, and treat others with the same respect. It does not matter who you are or where you are from, everyone should be treated equally. If you have a dream or something you really want, go for it, it can change your life forever.

8. Do Lies Make Things Better?

My eyes start to open, I can make out something white in front of me. I concentrate trying to think what it is, and then realise it is a ceiling. Hang on, where am I? What happened? Eager to know I sit up straight making my back stiffen, and panic. There is a wall on the left of me, I am in my room. Getting up slowly, I make my way towards the door which is ajar.

 

“Look – I – I don’t know, I don’t know – I get drunk - and then push my own niece down the stairs nearly killing her,” I hear Kay say. Niece? What? What is she on about niece? Am I related to Kay?

“Well now you know not to get drunk again,” Rachel says. Is this true? Slowly I get up, wanting to know the truth. I go around the door and they are looking up at me.

 

“Is it true?” I ask. They all look away. It must be true, I am related to Kay, and she is my Aunt. “Is it true?” I ask again. Kay puts her head into her hands and walks away, down the mentor corridor. I turn to Amy and Rachel, wanting to know.

 

“Sara -, “Amy says, trying to sound nice. It is true.

 

“It’s true – Kay – she’s my Aunt – you – you knew – why didn’t you tell me?” They are both speechless, and I am desperate for the truth right now.

 

“Why?” I ask again.

 

“Sara – this is really hard to explain,” Amy says. Slowly, I make my way down the stairs with Amy and Rachel watching my every move.

 

“Sara, come with us,” Rachel says. Before I can do anything they grab my arms, and lead me down the mentor corridors. Is this happening? Is this a dream? I’m going to wake up... and I know I am... aren’t I? These questions all swim in my head. We are at Emma’s office, why are we here? Does Emma have the answers? The door opens and I am pushed in.

 

“She knows,” Amy says.

 

“Eh?” Emma asks sounding confused.

 

“Kay” Emma then digs her face into her hands, she knows. Do they all know?

 

“Sara – please sit down”

 

“No,” I say and break away from Amy and Rachel. I walk over to the left and lean on the wall. Amy and Rachel then leave the room. Staring at the wall ahead of me I try to hold back the tears.

 

“Sara this is really hard – yes we lied, but we only did it to protect you – “

 

“Protect me from what?”

 

“From knowing who you are”

 

“Well - who am I then?” I laugh.

 

“Sara – you’re not normal – “

 

“Well I know that”

 

“God – Sara you’re making this really difficult for me just please let me speak... you’ve got... three Aunts here – “

 

“Three?”

 

“What?”

 

“Yeah right – there – I’ve said it” I leave off the wall, and then walk out the room. As I walk out I look left, down the long and never-ending corridor. I’m going to have to walk back to my room.
