3. First Secret

I awoke to the pounding of footsteps running down the hallway. I clamber out of my bed sleepily and make my way to my door. It must be early morning. Maybe 5 a.m.

"Call the doctor, NOW." I hear Maria say to some of the other workers. I step out of my room and join the chaos.

"Bernadette!" Kaliegh, one of the maids, yells worriedly. "Get back to bed my dear."

"Kal-What's going on?" I ask in fear.

"It's your father..." Before she can finish I sprint down the hallway to my father's bedroom. I push open the door to find my dad lying in bed clutching his heart and breathing rapidly. Luke, Peter, Rosaline, and my mother are already sitting near him.

"Daddy..?" I ask in a small weak voice. Everyone's head snaps towards me as I enter the darkened room.

"It's okay, come here sweetheart." he whispers in a weak voice. I rush to my fathers side. "Hey, hey, don't cry baby girl." he coos as a single tear falls from my eye. He strokes my cheek wiping away my tears.

"What's wrong?" I ask, terrified of knowing and terrified of not knowing.

"I am being summoned." He smiles kindly at me.

"By who?" I ask looking at him puzzlingly.

"By the angels." He smiles less and I can tell he is upset.

"Why do they want you now Daddy?" I whimper like a little girl.

"It's time for me to meet our maker." He whispers while his voice cracks.

"No, not yet, Daddy please!" I half yell as his eyes start to flutter closed. "Daddy! NO! You can't leave me! Please, Daddy!" I scream out helplessly before I am dragged out of his room, kicking and screaming. Tears streaming my face as sobs escape.

"Bernadette, calm down. Mommies here sweetheart." My mother whispers, tears running down her face as well. I cling to her as if my life depends on it, and right now, it does. Sure we don't get along all the time, but she will always be my mother and she will always be there for me.

"Why? Why?" I keep repeating through my sobs. My mothers hesitant but soothing hand rubbing small circles on my back, I can feel her shudder as well.

"Mom... Go I can take care of her." I hear Luke say from behind. then I'm being shuffled into his warm embrace. Luke doesn't hesitate, he just comforts me. "Shh.. Shh.. You're ok." he whispers. "Daddy, he is in a better place now."

"I just... I don't understand, he was fine..." I whisper holding back sobs.

"No... Bernadette, he wasn't fine, he has been sick for a long time. He didn't want to worry anyone. Especially you."

He wasn't fine?

"Oh..." Is all I can manage.


I look into her bright blue-green eyes.

"It's time for me to meet our maker." I whisper, I hear my own voice crack. I look for the last time at my beautiful daughter Rosaline, my two handsome sons, Peter and Luke, at my amazing wife Olivia... Then to the little girl, Bernadette, who isn't so little anymore. She doesn't know the secret. She doesn't know how I found her in an alley crying when she was only three years old. Someone had left this poor innocent little girl to be eaten by the dogs. I love her like my own, she is so beautiful, and kind spirited, I wish I had told her. I wish I didn't have to leave like this.. I wish I didn't lose the fight...

i feel my body slump back into the bed. I hear Bernadette's frantic screams, but I can't do anything now. I'm drifting away, to a better place. To the land of the heavens.

"Don't forget I love you." I gasp before the light falls down on me, taking me away.
