1. New Beginnings

  I woke up in the woods, again. I got up and looked around for my camera. I had all of my most precious memories on it I couldn't afford to lose it. I looked everywhere. I began to worry. I heard my mom calling me, I didn't care I continued to look for my camera. I heard a scream. I stopped and looked at my house. I started running, I tripped over rocks, landed in dirt, but I kept on running. I got to my house, and walked in, I saw my mom on the floor dead. Blood everywhere. I couldn't believe it, my mom had died, I stood there in shock not saying anything. That was the moment I decided never to get close to anyone, because they'll just leave me and being left by someone you love hurts.


I was 9 at that time, I experienced something no child should at such a young age. My father had left us right after I was born. Another reason why I cant and shouldn't trust people. I ended up going to a foster home. Went from house to house each week. Can you imagine how hard that would be for a little girl, to go through all of that right after her mother died. I had multiple of families, they were all mean. I couldn't wait till I was 18 so I could live on my own and not get hurt. Until I was getting ready to move in with another family when my foster house that I had been staying at got a call. It was from my father, Noah is his name. He ended up taking me to Canada for 5 years.


I was in the foster program for four years, so when I came back from Canada I was 18. I still live with Noah, but that doesn't mean I have to trust him. He lost my trust the moment he left me and my mother. If he hadn't left, my mother would still be alive, but I cant blame him for all of it, if only I had went back to the house when she called me. Instead I looked for my stupid camera because I just had to have it. I always think that if I had went inside maybe she wouldn't have died, maybe I would have called the police and she would still be alive. I cant do anything right.


Five years pasted and I still regret everything. I woke up on the couch, and sighed. I went upstairs and took a shower. As soon as I got out I felt the cold breeze flow across my skin. Just like that day, I thought, cold, bitter. I quickly shook it off my head and got dressed and went downstairs. Once I got there Noah eating a pear, I looked at him then picked up my bag and left. Now usually he would say something but ever since that day, he never talked to me again, we barely even look at each other.


Today I decided to put the past behind me and start college, that would be hard since my past is always haunting and taunting me reminding me of everything I've done. Anyway I took the number 7 bus to UCLA took me at least 4 buses to get there. As soon as I got there I looked around for the office. I finally found it and went in without knocking. When I walked in a student was sitting down on a bean bag chair, I was confused but didn't really care.


Then I said "Um I'm Rose, I'm suppose to be starting school here today, um I'm studying photography." 


Chad who was the principal then said "Oh welcome, here are your classes, you can just go now." He said nervously.


I just looked at him and said "Okay, umm bye I guess."


As I left I turned my head towards the man in the chair, he looked at me, I turned away and kept on walking. I sat down In my class and saw the same man who was in the bean bag chair. I felt awkward since we were sitting next to each other. I didn't want him to notice me so I turned my head to the other side hoping he wouldn't see me. That didn't work out so much, he took one glance at me and knew who I was. He said to me with a smirk on his face "So we're in the same class, nice to meet you." I didn't want to talk to him, but if I didn't he'd probably think I hate him or something. So I said "Yea nice to meet you to." With my head still not facing his. That's when the teacher came in, since it was the first day for me I had to introduce myself. I stood up and said "Hi, my name is Rose I'm 18, I stopped taking pictures when I was 9, but I want to start doing it again." Someone asked me what I was doing here, "rude" I said quietly but I answered back with "I came to start a new beginning."
