Saving Faith

Austin is an eighteen year old trouble maker, who has been in and out of foster homes and detention centers. He smokes, has tattoos, but has one foster sister; Faith that means the world to him. She is eleven years old and loves life and everything in it. What happens when the one person that Austin holds near and dear to his heart gets abducted?


2. Faith

As Austin approaches his little sisters room with his hands in his pockets, he plays with a necklace that he has in pocket of his pajama pants. When he reaches his sisters room he knocks on the door. A couple seconds later, the door opens to reveal his sister faith. The biggest smile appears on her face.

"AUSTIN!!" she yells while jumping into his arms for a hug. "Where have you been? I missed you!!"

"Hey shrimp" he replies while walking into his sisters room and sits on her bed, her following behind him and does the same.

"Where have you been Austin, mom said that you were at your friends house, but I didn't believe her because you would have called me." she replies walking over to her desk.

"That's what I came in here to talk to you about Faithy, I have been in a bad place.. and I don't ever want you following in my foot steps." He says.

"I wont Austin, I promise." she smiles and walks over to Austin with a piece of paper in her hand. "We have been working on poems in school, and I wrote one about you."

"Awwww really? Let me read it."

"You're going to hate it though." she said frowning and taking the place where she was before on her bed and handing the poem to Austin.

"I doubt it Shrimp" he says with a smirk on his face.

Every morning as I wake up I think of you,
as the hero that came into my life.
More and more you appeared to me when I was in strife.
Afraid I could not live without you in my life.
I only prayed every day and every night.
to have a brother like you by my side.
When I was hurt so many times.
you never let me down.
therefore I am proud.
to call you a true brother.
Even though I know you're not a child of my mother.
To me you'll always be

With tears in his eyes, he looks at faith. He engulfs her in a hug.

"I love you Faith, you mean the world to me, this is a great poem, and I will keep it forever."

"I'm glad you like it" Faith says.

"I got you something Faith" he says while pulling the necklace out of his pant pocket. "Close your eyes."

She does what she is told and closes her eyes. Austin puts the necklace around her neck and she opens her eyes. The sides of her lips curve up into a smile and looks in the mirror. A beautiful necklace she takes into view. A diamond crescent moon with a star hung from it, with the engraving 'Faith' in the star.

"Oh my god Austin!" she exclaims. "I love it!"

"Im glad" he replies. As the chat for a little while longer. Beth interrupts and tells them dinner is going to be ready and that their father is home. Getting off of the bed, Faith and Austin make their way into the dining room to see a man in a suit reading the newspaper.
