The Day Before Mothers Day

The Day Before Mothers Day

A Story by Demii
"

"1993: Child Killed in Warrington Bomb Attack." BBC News. BBC, 20 Mar. 1993. Web. 25 Sept. 2013

"

It was 1993, the day before mother’s day, and it was a beautiful march morning. My parents and I were rushing to get that last minute gift for mom, trying to hide it and keep it a secret. The golden square was always packed on Saturdays mornings, it was quite a pain to get around but I handled myself well enough. I grabbed my little brother’s hand so he didn’t fall behind, and we started heading to a store up ahead of us to find mom something special. Walking around the store I saw something shiny and gold and went over towards my brother. Hey dad, what about this? It’s nice.” I asked holding a bright golden pen that said ‘I love you mom’. “Well son, considering she’s your mother, we can get her something a little better than this” I head back towards where I found the pen and put it back.

 

We all slowly walking out the store scanning all the shelves quick to make sure we didn’t miss anything. That’s when I hear the most terrifying loud noise, and everything’s white. I flew so far; I lost sight of my family. The golden square was not the golden square anymore, it was destroyed. Everything was destroyed, they’re dozens of people screaming and crying for help, but there was nothing I could do but run. I ran as fast as I could scream my brother’s name, yelling for my mom and dad, but I couldn’t see or hear them. That’s when another bomb blew up and that’s when I saw them. The bridge cracked and started breaking, my mom and dad were on the opposite side screaming for me and holding my brothers dangling body. I couldn’t walk, I couldn’t move, I couldn’t even scream if I wanted to. My legs were broken and bruised, from the fall and impact of everything blowing up. But I didn’t give up. I put all my strength into my arms and pushed myself closer and closer to my parents, until I couldn’t anymore. I was getting dizzy and the pain was so excoriating I couldn’t bear move another muscle with screaming in agony. I gave up, I lied they’re and I watched people suffer, I watched people cry and I couldn’t do anything, but lye here.

This was some story I hope it wasn't you within it? It was very mind blowing because things like that take place on no matter what the day. We never know tomorrow nor are we meant too. I say take each day for what it is tell people how you feel , tell them you love them you care about them hug them never letting go:) You did great Demii:) I found it very profound and was sucked within it. I am bad to vision all the images placed out when I read . Sometimes its filled with beauty other times sad and pain reading things. I look forward reading more when you write :)

Great story telling. This did justice in the realm of getting the message across. Great message. There's lot of times where a story can have a great message to aim for, and have a lot of under lining things but then no one gets it, and if no one gets it, then the point has failed. But in my opinion this did well to get the message across. You made it clear, which is why I think it's good. Keep up the good work. What was also great was that I could imagine the story as I read it, and that is also a strong point of stories. The ability to have the reader imagine it because after all we're reading not watching it, but it was as if I was there as I read this, and that is great. Great visuals and great story telling. It had plot and substance. When you add substance to writing it gets that much better. It gets the reader hooked on it and make them feel as if they are part of it. As long as their is that emotional connection between the reader and the story then it's good. The connection you were able to established in the writing gives the reader a sense of comfortably that they are in tune with the writing. So that way when the writing is over, the reader wants more, and wishes it didn't end. I feel the same way when I watched a movie or tv series that I get so attached to, I never want it to end. And for this writing, I didn't want it to end. You had me hooked, and I am sure everyone else who read it was hooked as well. That is good, that is what you want for people to keep wanting more. The way you put the story together makes me feel like my life is different for that moment in which I read your story. I love it, and it was beautiful. Just keep posting stories like this, and you'll have a good following.
