The piercing wail of the ambulance woken me up into reality. "I'm sorry, we couldn't save them" was the sentence that made me realize what an horrifying world we live in.
The piercing wail of the ambulance woke me up into reality. "I'm sorry, we couldn't save them", was the sentence that made me realize what a horrifying world we live in. Leaving a lonely child into the hands of a horrid person showed cruelty in the world.
"Honey, you'll be staying with your aunt from now on." a quiet voice explained. I looked up and saw . She gave me a kind smile and led me to my aunt.
"Adrianna!" my aunt said in a stern voice. I hesitated to walk to her. The nurse gave me a slight push to motivate me. "Adrianna! Come to me!" she yelled in a harsher tone.
"No!" I yelled as I tried holding back my tears. I turned around and ran out the hospital doors, shocked about what I have just done. I heard a voice in the back of my head, telling me to turn around. It told me to turn around and forget all the wretched things my aunt did, but why would I turn around and let a women who betrayed my mother raise me? It seemed ridiculous and senseless to me.
"Adrianna!" I heard the nurse yelled. Adrenaline was rushing through my veins, faster and faster each time I pumped my legs. I spotted an alleyway and hid behind the dirty, black trash bins. I wanted a place to escape reality to realize that this was all a dream. I sat down on the cold hard floor, slumped my shoulders, slouched and looked at the floor. I knew it wasn't a dream. I was just fooling myself.
