Firecracker

I was left with the state, foster home after foster home, school after school. But this one’s different, this family they live in a different country. They want me; they said I was unique and beautiful. I’m seventeen now and I’m being adopted by a family in England.

1. Preface

Preface-

 

When I was six months old my mom and I were going to the store. When the light turned green she did was everybody else did, she took her foot from the brake and pushed on the gas. But she didn’t see it. She didn’t see the semi that had failed to yield the left hand turn. Meaning my mom was turning left when she died. On impact the dash board fell on her legs crushing them, the steering wheel jabbed into her chest and I sat there. A little bruise on my chest where my car seat had saved my life, sometimes my chest hurts even though I’m not six months old anymore but they say it’s because it had cracked my collar bone and almost broke. They say it’ll hurt when the weather has big changes and sometimes it might not even hurt at all. But then two months later it happened again. This time I wasn’t there. I was eight months old when my dad died. He was riding down the highway on his motorcycle when someone hit him purposely driving him off the road. He fell down a grass embankment the motorcycle falling on top of his body, killing him instantly. I went to live with my grandparents, my grandpa was always giving me hugs that lasted a little too long, always spoiling me no matter what my grandma would say. Then he raped me, I didn’t tell. Nobody knows what happened, but of course being rich has its down sides like robbers. When I was twelve they were involved in a robbery in their house, two gunshots to the head. I was left with the state, foster home after foster home, school after school. But this one’s different, this family they live in a different country. They want me; they said I was unique and beautiful. I’m seventeen now and I’m being adopted by a family in England.
