"Ella! I need to talk to you!" My mom yelled while I was getting dressed and ready for school.
"What is it? It can't be that important!" I yelled.
"Please?" She sounded scared now.... I rushed down stairs and found her in the kitchen. She looked pale. More than normal.
"Ella, there's no easy way for me to tell you this, but I have cancer. The doctors said I only had a couple more days to live."
"But..... When you die, where will I go?" I said in between sobs.
"You're going to be living with my best friend, Liz. She has three sons, Luke, Jack, and Ben." She told me. Where have I heard of those names before? Oh my god....... That was my bully.
"I'm going to go upstairs and call Kayla," I told her and ran up the stairs as fast as I could. When I got into my room, I picked up my phone and called Kayla. She picked up on the second ring.
Me: Kayla, my mom is dying.
Kayla: What are you going to do? You could stay with me.
Me: I can't, I have to stay with LUKE.
Kayla: WHAT? You can't! He'll kill you!
Me: Yeah, I know. But it's for my mom, It's not my choice anymore...... My life is ruined. When I die, you can have my wallet, t.v, dresser.....
Kayla: STOP TALKING LIKE THAT!
Me: You're the one who brought it up, not me.
Kayla: Sorry, you know i'm stupid......
Me: Yeah, it's fine. I have to go though. Pick me up for school in like 20 minutes and we'll talk more.
Kayla: Okay, byeeeee.
20 minutes later, Kayla picked me up and we were off to school.
