Screams of a newborn filled the house, and echoed throughout the town.
This is something my mom never got to experience before her death. Now that I have a new mom she gets to experience what life is really about, with us. It started to downpour and the baby kept on crying but this time he was crying out for my mom that it woke my dad up from his nap since he was drunk, and boy was he mad. He told the baby to shut up, and he continued to cry. I came running down the stairs to see what was happening, I took hold of my baby brother and ran into the kitchen avoiding my dad who went back to drinking on the couch. My mom had already prepared a warm bottle of milk for me to feed the baby.That’s all he wanted was to be feed.
No one paid attention to him anymore, because of their jobs. I was the only thing he had, I was always there for him. 4 Years Later Summer of 1912″Mom, I’m hungry!” yelled my little brother Tatum.”Yes baby, I know”, my mom said softy.
A loud crash was heard outside our house. I peered out the front window and saw my dad’s car smashed into our garage door. My mom quickly locked the door, and told us to go into the closet. I quickly grabbed my brother and ran into the closes closet. Once we were both in, my mom locked the door, and told us to be quiet. My little brother started to make sounds and I put my hand over his mouth.
Then it all went silent, until we heard the front door slam open. “What happened?” my mom said stutteringBut my dad didn’t answer he started walking around the kitchen then to the living room. “Where are they?!” he asked drunkenly with a beer bottle in his hand.
“The-e-y went over to um, JungKook’s house. There staying the night” she said stuttering.My dad slowly walked over to my mom, set his empty beer bottle on the counter and stared into her eyes. “Why would you think they would go over there, for the night?””Humm?” he said in her face.”They wanted to spend the night with him”she softly said.”Oh REALLY!”he yelledHe picked up the beer bottle and threw it against the wall and it shattered to pieces.
Then out of nowhere I yelled, and he came to where the sound was coming from, the closet, and broke the door down. He peered down at us. “So there over at JungKook’s house yah?!”In the background I saw my mom pick up something that looked like a bat, but as soon as she did, he turned around, grabbed the bat and threw it and her to the ground. There was a loud clunk and Tatum started crying.
I tried to calm him but it wasn’t working. Suddenly he turned around and started walking toward us with an angry glare on his face. Was this the end? What was he going to do? I thought in my head.To Be Continued………
