8. Chapter Eight Lurane's POV

It was 9:30pm, Mary was sound asleep, and I just got done praying. Tears escaped my eyes. "I don't understand," I find myself whispering. "I don't understand why Jake had to die, I don't understand why Mary's mom had to die, I don't understand anything. Mary has been through a lot, a lot more than a fourteen year old girl should go through." A sob escapes my lips and I cover my mouth. 
When I opened my eyes, I found that I cried myself to sleep. I go to my bathroom and freshen up 
When I get downstairs, Mary was eating a granola bar. "Hey," I tell her, she ignores me. 
"Do you want to do something?" I try again. Nothing. 

I was reading a book when I feel my baby kick. I touch my stomach. Feeling tears stinging my eyes, I blink them away. I hear a crash, and I hurry from my chair from my room and ran downstairs. When I get there, Mary was on the floor, tears streaming down her cheeks. 
"Mary, what's wrong?" I asked rushing to her side. 
"Leave me alone!" She tells me getting up. 
"Mary please! Just talk to me!" I begged. 
"Why? Why should I? You don't know nothing about me! You don't know what I'm going through, and you never will! So why don't you do us both a favor and just send me away!" She screamed at me. 
"No, I will not send you away. You can do all you want Mary, but you are stuck living with me until you turn eighteen." I tell her, trying to contain my tears. 
"Why! Why do I have to live with you! Can't you see I don't want to be here? Just send me away Lurane! I don't want to be here! I hate you! Can't you see that!" She screamed and ran to her room. 
When I hear her door slam, I let my tears come down. My knees crumble under me. "I wish you were here Jake," I whisper. "Then you could help me get through to Mary, just like you got through to me when I turned fifteen." 

I open my eyes to see I was still on the kitchen floor. I get up and clean up the glass. Once the glass was picked up, I dried the water that was in the glass.
