Forgetting Forever

For Carissa McVeigh moving was nothing new, she lived her first five years of her life in a suit case - Staying in different hotels and apartments all around Ireland with her dad who was a work addict .
But this was her biggest move yet - from Ireland to America.
What would her new life bring?


3. TheJournal.


I opened the journal, and the middle of all the pages were cut into a square dent and inside the square dent was a thin jewelery box. I opened the box and inside was a pretty floral locket. I opened it and on one side there was a picture of a girl, about the same age as me and on the other side there was a piece of paper. I could only imagine it was dad that put this there, nobody else has lived here for the past 10 years - dad told me. I pulled the piece of paper out of the compartment and I unfolded it.

Come visit me at 3am,

That's all it said, nothing more, nothing less. What planet was dad on? Was he trying to make me hate this house on the first night I've been here? Or maybe it wasn't him ? No no, it was. Stop thinking like that.


I swung my feet around to the side of the bed and stood up. I lifted the mattress and slid the journal underneath it and after a few seconds, slid the locket underneath aswell. I went over to one of my boxes of clothes and lifted the lid. I unpack all of the clothes into my wardrobe and then picked out a pair of ripped white shorts, a red tank top and underwear. I found my way to the bathroom and turned on the shower. The warm water felt amazing on my skin. After a 20 long minute shower, I stepped out into the cool air of the bathroom and got changed.
