Not just another Summer!

Emma is your average girl playing baseball and having fun with friends. She plays in a Baseball Tournament which takes her around the world for weeks at a time. This time baseball is taking her to London, with her best friends Zak and Shannon by her side what will happen this summer. Is a trophy the only thing that Emma brings back?


24. The Letter!

As I pulled out the second piece of paper reading the title i dropped everything standing there frozen, there was no way to describe what I was feeling nothing has ever felt worse, scattered on the floor at my feet layed a the last words from my mother and her will. I was hoping this might all be a dream waking up on the plane and realizing that none of this had happened, but this was the straw that held all of me together and i could feel it had just broken leaving the rest of me to fall apart. I dropped to my knees grabbing the letter and will in each hand, realising that I had to let her go was the hardest thing to do, she was the last of what was left of my world without her I am nothing. As I read through the note I could hear her voice floating around in my head as if she was reading it to me, there were even little smudges of the ink where there where tear stains on the sheet. I couldn't hold back any tears,

My Dear Emma,

If your reading this then sadly I have passed, and hopefully by now you know how. I am really sorry I didn't tell you sooner but I was told it was not life threatening and that I was safe, it wasn't until not long ago that I was told they made a mistake and that I had a chance of survival from the surgery, I took that chance but I guessing from how things are now it was not my best decision. I had you when I was quite young but I must say that the decision of keeping you was 100% right and as I told you my parents did not approve, you have gone your whole life without grand parents there to guide you and support you and most of your life without a father due to cancer. I want you to be the best you, you can be you where a once in a lifetime gift that your grand parents didn't get a chance to opening, but I want you to make them realise how wrong they where about you, please honey don't block yourself off from the world like you did with your fathers death, I know life will be hard but thats how you grow stronger, it will be challenging but thats what makes you smarter. Just remember Im always with you and right now I am with your father and we will always be watching over you never ever forgot that I love you and always will.

Love You Forever,

Your Mum <3

This note just proved that everything that was happening wasnt a nightmare it was real and it meant that my mum was actually gone just like my dad and with no proper goodbye. I can't even describe how heartbreaking that is, knowing you will never see someone again and never getting a chance of saying goodbye. All of the sudden there was a knock on the door and I turned to see Nicole at the door with a tear-stained face, and red watery eyes,

"Um sorry for interrupting you but uh someone is um asking for you on the phone" she said through sobs,

"Did I uh read that out loud?" i asked,

"Uh yea" she said looking away from me,

"How much did you hear?"

"Quite a lot, your mum is so sweet and sounds like she loves you heaps, I can't believe you lost both your parents and both to cancer thats so sad" She said as her smile shifted and a few more tears fell,

"So uh who is on the phone?" I asked changing the subject before we flood this place with tears,

"Uh a Zac and Shannon im pretty sure" she said, I stood up placing the papers on my bed and passing her, heading for the stairs and as Nicole trailed behind me, I picked up the phone trying to make myself sound a bit better,

"Hello?" I asked,


"Shan cool it, Issie are you ok and how is your mum?" I heard him ask as I heard Shan mumbling in the background,

"Im fine im at home, but I really can't talk right now"

"have you been crying, Em what happened?" Zac said starting to panic,

"Zac calm down, but I really dont wanna talk right now Ill call later!"

"Ok but don't forget to call"

"I wont bye guys and uh Tell Niall and Reece, Im sorry for leaving"

"No problem bye Issie" Zac replied before I hung up, I walked into the living room where I fell back on the couch, As I looked up I saw Nicole walk in with two cups of tea,

"how did you find all the stuff?" I asked as she handed me a cup,

"It took a while but I just looked through most of the cupboards and finally found everything, its quite organized so it wasn't to hard" she smiled,

"well thank you I defiantly need it"

"No problem" she smiled.


*Nicole's POV*

It was so easy to tell she was taking it hard, but who wouldn't she lost both her parents and even worse to cancer,

"So what where you parents like?" I asked breaking the silence,

"They where amazing kind, generous there actually aren't enough words they where to perfect, my dad was a supporter he got me into baseball when I was young it was a family thing he always helped me up when I fell he kept me going, after he died it was hard but I had my mum also my best friend she was always there no matter what, ready to make me smile or laugh if I was upset, she was quite strict I must say but it was because she cared, they where amazing I lost two of the most important people in my life, but heaven has gained to angels, thats what my mum told me when my dad died" I said smiling,

"Thats so cute they must have been really good to you, so what was the other paper in you had from the envelope upstairs?" I asked since I knew the first one was the letter,

"It was my mums will..." she replied as her smile faded and so did mine...
