8. The truth



I didn't fall asleep that night I watched him sleep. He kept talking in his sleep about his brother and how he was strong and powerful, then he said the word accident and started kicking and screaming no! no! no! At the top of his lungs. I rapped a scarf around his mouth. He woke up with a jolt. Were you trying to kill me! "No, you were screaming in your sleep you could have gotten us killed!" I said softly. "Oh", I'm sorry it's just since I lost my brother I don't get much sleep." " It's ok, do you wanna talk about it?" I asked. "Might as well, my brother and I were hanging out near a pond that we would go to, to  just think. It was a nice green  area with frogs and a mini pond. It was always so relaxing. One day when we were there just sitting on these rocks two older men that were about mid- thirties came up to us and started hitting and punching and kicking my brother. I yelled at them to stop but they wouldn't. "They pulled out a knife and said if you know what's good for you kid I would run", they had a raspy tone. My brother told me to run and I ran as far as I could, and then I heard a gun shot and I never saw my brother again. After that my parents became criminals and I have been living on my own for 7 years." said Drew. "Wow", I said. "If were being honest here I want to tell you something......... my real name isn't Jill it's Lilly." I said. "Ok," said Drew chuckling. "What did your parents do?"I said. " "Mine poisoned cargo, how about you?"asked Drew. " I have an older brother named Dallas and our parents stole $90,000,000,000 worth of diamonds" I said. "Wow", Ummmmmm...... I think we should get some sleep" said Drew "Goodnight" I said
