9. The Horrible Past
"babe if she died it wasn't your fault, you can't put that on your self."
"You don't understand Harry, I haven't finished yet. She died when we were on our trip to this big medow, we always go there every year on the first day of Summer, it's a family tradition. A tradition that broke that year. I was playing by the lake, picking up flat rocks so I could skip them across the water. I was walking along the boat dont when I saw the perfect one for my dad to skip(he was the best so I gave the good ones to him). Of course only being 6, with out a life jacket I, myself couldn't reach it so naturally I went and asked Sophie. Sophie areed becuase she always thought of others before herself." * had to stop or I was going to cry soon. " she was sitting on the dock and still couldn't reach it so she asked for me to hold onto her feet so she could reach. I did but only being 6, I couldn't hold her for long, ust as our dad was coming back on the boat I yelled for her to come up or the boat would hit her. trying to portec her I let her go s she could swim away. I forgot she didnt have a life jacket and...she got hit! ITS ALL MY FAULT!" I started crying again when the flash back came
"Please Sophie? Daddy will really like the rock, I pwomise!"
"ok, ok but only for you Em. Is this is?"
"yep" she said, making a pop sound on the P
"Ok i'll see what I can do." " Em, I can't reach it can you grad my fet so I can get down to reach it."Sure Soph!" she grabbed my ankles and I reached down to grabb it.
" a litlle farther Em" she reached so I could reach it.
The last thing I remeber was Emily screaming" Sophie get up the boats coming! SOPHIE!"
I felt her left go of my ankles as I slipped into the darkness. I could hear faint sounds, I could make out what I think was dad yelling at Em. he never yells. " EMILY WHAT THE FUCK DID YOU DO, SOPHIE WAS OUR FAVOURITE AND NOW SHE'S DED BECAUSE OF YOU!" I heard him slap em across the face. i could tell it hurt because she was crying and trying to apologize" i-I-I'm Sorry dad, i didn't mean to, she was etting a rock for me so i could watch you skip it across the lake and, and, I DONT WANT HER DEAD!" she said cring. Its Okay Sophie, I forgive You!
