The nurse came to the bed in the Hospital. 

"Abbie! It's breakfast time", she said.

Abbie stared at the tubes that were in her mouth. She stared at the deep bruises on her arms, legs, and feet. "Mom! Dad!", she said. "They're dead, Abbie; they're not alive". She cried, as tears fell down her young face. She let the nurse take the tubes out. Then she ate her meal knowing that she was alone in the world.

Abbie opened her eyes. She saw an African-American nurse smile at her. "It's going to be alright, child; it's going to be fine. Now, your Aunt and Uncle mean right; your....", she was cut off by Abbie. "They never came to my house", she said. And she sighed, and wished that she would disappear.
