3. Chapter 3: The Dream
I woke up and heard noises downstairs. I walked to mommy and daddy's room to see if mom was home but she wasn't so I woke dad up. "Daddy? I'm scared, I heard something come from downstairs." " it was probably the wind when I left the window open" he says calming me down. We walk downstairs to see 2 men stealing our things. One of them had a gun because when he saw dad he shot him 6 times. 2 in chest 4 in leg.
"DADDY NOOOOOO!!!!!! Daddy please don't die, please!!!!!!" I was crying so hard I couldn't breathe. "Daddy please stay awake! Don't die please!!" "E...Emmy, take care of your m...mother for me." He says trying to gasp for air but one of the bullets hit his heart. "Stay strong, I.......love.......you...... Baby girl......." I cry hard until He takes his last breath and I cry even harder blaming myself for his death.
I woke up screaming and crying and that's when my mom bursts into my room. "Emmy what's wrong??" "I..I had another dream about dad." She pulls me in for a hug and sits me on her lap. "Everything's gonna be okay love." She kisses my head rocking back and forth, calming me down. "Try to think of happy things before going back to sleep, goodnight honey" "goodnight mom" I glanced at my phone and try to text Kayla even though it's 12:10.
