8. Our life stories

Bryan's POV

"Hi grandpa!" Grace yelled.

"Hey sweetie." He yelled back. Grace instantly grabbed my arm and dragged me in front of him.

"Grandpa, this is Bryan." She said.

"Hello Mr. James." I said shyly.

"So this is Bryan. You look better than I expected." He said shaking my hand.

"Well I'm going to go take a shower and then we can go out to eat." He said. He kissed Grace's cheek and went up the stairs.

"Woah. I've never seen you that nervous before. I smell a chicken." Grace said.

"Oh shut up. He just scares me a little." I said looking to the ground.

"Well duh. That's the whole point. He wants you to be scared for my sake. He does that on purpose." She replied.

We both went back to the living room and finished watch the episode.

"Grace. You remember when I promised to not say something about school?" I asked very careful.

"Yeah." She looks very concerned." Why?"

"Um and remember when I said why can I tell you know who. You said that you would tell me later. So can you tell me now?"

"Oh. Um let's talk on the patio. I don't want you know who to to know." She said.

We walked outside and I was super amazed. Like you've got to be kidding. The was like a mini park in her backyard.

"I'm going on the swings!" I yelled running to the swings.

"Ok we can swing and talk." She said. Once we got swinging she started to talk.

"Okay I'm only telling this to you because I trust you. When I was 7 my mom got into a deathly car accident and was put into a coma. And she was in that coma for 3 months. The doctor said that she wasn't going to wake up because she died while in her coma. Now it's just me and my dad. Soon my dad lost his job and he hasn't found none yet. He barley tries to find one. Now we're just paying everything with the money my mom made. But my dad is doing something who knows where and I'm living here for a month. And if my grandparents gain custody of me, then this is where I live. And that's my very sucky life."

"Wow Grace. I didn't know you went through all of that crap." I said.

"Yeah. It happens." She said looking at the ground.

"Well. At least your not the only one." I said.


"My life wasn't all that happy go lucky. I had a start bad too."

"Comfortable telling me what happened?" She asked.

"Sure. Well I'm an abortion survivor. My parents really didn't want me and they said that I was the one that caused all the drama. But my parents were almost never around. And when they weren't, my aunt would always take care of me and my brothers. But one night my dad came home really super drunk and he abused me, my brothers, and especially my mom. It was like getting beaten by this giant. And every night he would come home, it would be the same thing. My mom got fed up with it and she called the police. He soon found out and tried to kill us all. But cops came in just in time and arrested him. His sentence was 25 to life. My mom couldn't support the family anymore and sent us here to live with my grandma. And I haven't seen her in 2 years and don't plan on seeing her again."

"Bryan. I'm so sorry." She said softly.

"Don't apologize. Don't even feel sorry. I'll get through it." I said looking to the ground.

"We'll get through it." She said.

I smiled.
