Chapter 4

A Chapter by Emo_Catrina

8:56 p.m. June 31


I started to notice some things about my sister.  She seems more tired with fatigue and she’s losing a lot of weight.  There’s pain in her no longer genuine smile.  I would listen to her quiet sobs at night as she cried herself to sleep.  She no longer laughed, and if she did, her eyes wouldn’t play the part.  They wouldn’t sparkle the bright hazel they were, instead they were filled with pain and deep sadness.  A sadness I’ve never seen or understood.

6:56 a.m. July 1


I walked through the kitchen, trying to get to the back door without my mum seeing me.  But I failed.  

“Good morning, Sarah.  Have some breakfast,” my mum attempted sounding cheerful.

“No, mum, I never eat breakfast, if you never noticed.”

“Where are you going?”

“School, mum.  You should try it sometime.  It feels just like home  I go to hell and come back to hell.  How wonderful.”

I feel bad for her.  A damn shame….  That’s what it is.  I know it can’t be easy having me as a daughter and that nothing can prepare someone for that kind of shame and disappointment.  

-Sarah

I kept reading from chapter 1 without reviewing, the story already pulled me into its lines..
I admire this way of writing as the narrator... I realy lack in it. I find the story realistic and exciting. some families are really like this.. but how about you blend in some other character's feeling. like Alaska's feelings more and more like in the previous chapter when she said she felt they were living in hell too. I want to hear more of Alaska's feeling,too

Really liked it. Thanks for sending me a request for a interesting story like this

I am a little stunned by the way the narrator speaks to her mom. Even tho I was highly disrespected in my broken childhood home, I would've never spoken to either parent this way. It's a new take on an old familiar situation for me. Strong honest writing! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Sad words shared in the story. I liked the way you are setting up the story. Leading the reader into sad thoughts and a bad situation. Thank you my friend for sharing the excellent chapter.

(applauds) I really like where this is going. You can feel Sarah's pain and anger in this. Brilliant job, dear. :)
