3. Four Years Later


I have lived in the Unknown Land for four years now. I am fourteen years or fourteen years old, as these people like to call it. I live with a girl my year or age named Kelsey and her mother Miranda McPhee. I go to South Ridge High School as a freshman and made many new friends by the names such as Drew Adair and Jared Bachman. They're nice and I have learned proper English. I can't say I like it her though. Actually, I hate it. I want my life back. I liked my way of life better. Well, last summer (which is the Paleface name for the hot tempered months) I requested to go home to the reserve and visit, but they just denied it. Said I live here now and need to forget my old way of life. Well, guess what? I don't want to forget. I want to hold on so bad to my old life that I even convinced them to let me keep my Cherokee name Feather. Everything else they made me change such as my clothes, shoes, language, hairstyle, lifestyle, and everything else in between.

I wish every night on the stars that I could go home and see my sister and mama again. My sister would be thirteen years now and would be considered a young lady in our tribe and they would've had a huge ceremony in her maturing which I probably missed. I wonder if she even still remembers me. She has too. I gave her the feather and she probably put it up on her wooden chest next to her favorite buffalo skin blanket. Oh, how I miss her dearly. I write them, but I don't think that they ever send the letters to my family.

I also miss my tribe and best friend Luna dearly. I heard that Luna was safe for another year from leaving the Sky Tribe. I write her as well, but I don't think that they ever send those either. I don't care. I'm getting out of here soon. I am getting out so I can go see my family.

It was another long day of school and I had a lot of homework to do. Algebra and Spanish homework to be exact. School sucks and I hate it. Now here I am talking like them. Jeez. Will I ever go home?"
