Chapter 2:

Jamie’s POV:

     “Thank-you” I said to the cashier on my way out of the store. She seemed unhappy. So unhappy that she didn’t say anything back when I said thank-you, People’s manners these days.

     I was on my bike half way home when all of a sudden two huge fire trucks and an ambulance start heading toward my house. I start biking as fast as I could until I got to my street.

     “Oh my god” My house, it was on fire! In my head all I could think of were my parents. Where were they? Are they Ok? What happened? There were a lot of questions. The same topic came across my mind over and over, my parents. I ran up to the fire man and asked where my parents were.

   “Who are you?” he asked. “I’m Jon and Cathy Smith’s Daughter” he nodded without saying a word. I look to my right and see two paramedics with gurneys and a man and a woman in black bags. Tears start brimming up in my eyes as I run towards them. The fireman walks towards me and pulls something out of his pocket, “This is all we could retrieve from the fire” I take it from him and start crying even more, a picture of my father, mother and me. He hugs me and says he’s sorry. “Do you have any family or friends you could live with?” I said yes, lying of course. All I wanted to do is live alone. Well it’s either that or I live in a foster home.

 He leaves me alone with my family. The family I no longer have.
