Chapter 5

Jade

“Mom?” I yelled to my mother. “Dad?”

There was apparently no one at my house which was weird because it was the morning. I got up and made myself breakfast. I sat down at the table, watching the leaves falling down from the tree. I sighed. It was always boring in the morning. I finished my breakfast and carried it to the table. Suddenly I heard breaking glass. I jumped.

It came from my parents room. Then I heard,

“My vase!” That was my mother. I slowly walked towards the stairs and continued up them. I walked to the closed door of my parents room and put my ear up to the door. I only heard snidbits of what they were saying but it sounded like,

“I’m ...Not sending…. kill herself…Jade !” That was my mother.

“She… No choice…. Don’t want to….we must.” That was my dad. Then when I was about to walk away I heard,

“I can’t send my daughter to her death! I won’t!” My mother yelled. I ran down the stairs and to the kitchen sink so it looked like I was doing something. I heard my parents door creak open slowly. I looked as if I was washing the dishes when in reality I was trying to piece together what I had heard.

Let’s see… I thought. Maybe it was, “I’m not sending my daughter to,...” Uh well, I don’t know…. Let’s try my dad’s sentence…

“She,” Uh, “She has no choice? I don’t want to but we must?” What are they talking about…?

I was pulled out of my thinking when my parents walked into the kitchen.

“Honey? We, uh, need to talk to you about something…” My mother told me slowly.

“Yeah?” I turned around still thinking about what I heard.

“Come sit down.” My dad said. I walked over to the kitchen table and sat on my hands.

“What is it?” I ask.

“Well, according to this letter we got in the mail… uh…” My mother tried to start a conversation.

“What? What is it?!” I practically yell.

“The letter was from the government. This is top secret information so you can’t tell your friends.” My dad said.
    “She won’t have time to tell them anyway!” My mom said and burst into tears.

“What’s going to happen?” I ask practically crying too.

“Apparently, Japan wants to take over the US, but the president decided to make a deal with them. 12 girls are being randomly picked in Japan and 12 girls are being randomly picked here to, uh, fight to the death and then the last girl standing, whether it be a Japanese girl or an American girl will determine who has possession of the US.” My father finished.

“I…” I tried to form a sentence but the words wouldn’t come out.

“Oh my beautiful Jade!” My mother sobbed and hugged me. She practically squeezed the life out of me but I didn’t care. It was probably the last hug I would get from her. My dad came over and patted me on the back. I didn’t know what to say so I came out with the most logical thing to do.

“I’m, uh, gonna go pack…” I said and got up from the table. I just had to accept my fate. No matter what it was.
