1. Chapter 1

When my best friend first offered me the trip to Afghanistan, I couldn't say yes fast enough. I couldn't wait to get out of my mom's house. To be on my own even if it was only for a little while. Boarding the plane and leaving the United States seemed like the only hard part in my mind. I knew my mom wouldn't want me to go after what happened back on September 11, 2001. So, I didn't tell her. I left a note on my bedside table the morning I left. She was at work at the time and when she got home, I'd be somewhere over the Atlantic Ocean.

Before I go any further maybe I should introduce myself. My name is Bliss Ann Meadows. At the time this all went down, I was an eighteen year old girl with a mind for adventure. I had long red hair that goes to about the middle on my back. Most of the time I have my hair in a loose braid that falls down my back like a river. Standing at the height of 5'4 and a half. My frame is small but I am stronger then what I look, thanks to my brothers.

My life hasn't always been the greatest. My father walked out on us when I was five years old. I always used to blame him walking out on me and in fact, I still do. In all of the home videos they had made before I came my mom, dad, and brothers seemed so happy. Like the perfect modern family. It all changed when I came into the picture. They kept making home videos for the first year of my life then they just... stopped. It didn't really matter, it's not like I was in many of those videos. After my dad left, my life just kept getting harder and harder and my mom kept getting more and more angered. In a way I think she blamed me for dad walking out as well.

In first grade my teachers found out I was dyslexic. My M's always changed to W's and so on. The only reason I made it through school was because of all of my teachers. They tried so hard to get me where I needed to be and everyday I thankful for them.

Anyways, I think that's enough about me. Back to the story.
