"I thought I knew everything about my life, but I guess I don't really."
A girl named Alex has a complicated life. She has parents that nag at her to do things that she doesn't really want to do, and they could live a happy life if she didn't, but she doesn't have a choice. Her friend Kira is probably the closest thing she has to family. They spend every moment of free time they have with each other and they talk about EVERYTHING together. When they find out that they are really people that h
I stared up at the walls around me and and wished I could stay here forever. Even though this place had nothing to do, It'd be better than staying home where there's rules surrounding you, and some of the rules are stupid too like there: 1) No computer or TV or any electric devices in your room 2) No TV or computer during the weekends 3) No pets allowed in the house because parents and grandparents are allergic to then 4) No friends unless parents know about it.. and blah blah blah. You get the point?
So yeah. My life is boring and dull and everything bland. My parents won't let me do ANYTHING, but I live around this. Then again, I AM my parents only child so they wouldn't know about any of this, and on top of that they didn't even HAVE me. I'm an adopted child, and what really sucks is that they won't even tell me about them. They say that they don't know anything about them and that they don't know anything about them, but I don't believe it.
I found out about all this when I was 9 from my cousin, and not them. I never asked when they would tell me because I knew that they would never really tell me anything about it because they wanted me ALL to themselves and I HATE that.
I've told a couple of my most trusted friends, Kira and Demi being one of them. Demi was my best friend, but we got into an argument lately so we never really talked after about a couple days ago, but she said that It should be my life journey to find them and everything, but I didn't want to. I didn't want to not because I was lazy or anything, but because I was scared. I was scared in what they might think of me, and what I might think of them. I try not to think about any of this, but when it comes up in a conversation between me and my mom... I just... I don't know. It just all comes out.
When I thought about all this, images flashed through my mind and I saw green grass and trees that surrounded a meadow. I saw a city to my right and it was beautiful. Then, I blinked and it was all gone and the pain that I knew was coming came.
"Ow," I groaned as my hands went to my head. These images always hurt, and I've told Kira about them but she thinks that they're more like visions than images because she's seen more than I have and everything.
"Are you okay?" asked Kira, her voice filled with concern, "What did you see?"
"It's just the same thing. The meadow and the city. I don't see why that place is so important. Why can't I see anything else? There has to be a meaning a meaning behind all of this," I babbled.
"I don't know either, but we'll find out. I promise," she smiled and stood up from the stool inside the practice room. Her blond curls bobbled on her shoulder as she stood up from the seat and her eyes shone with confidence. She took my hand and I staggered along her.
We headed for the main entrance of this old school and made out way across a street and to a 7eleven, "You want anything?" Kira asked me as we entered the store.
"A Sprite please," I smiled and took a can of soda from the rack, "Thanks."
"Yeah, sure, no problem," she took the can of Sprite and then a can of Pepsi for herself and laid a twenty on the table.
"Thanks," said the cashier, "Here's you change."
Kira handed me my soda and I got ready to shake it up, "Please Alex. Don't do it," she pleaded.
"What? It makes it extra fizzy and I like it that way," I saw the cashier give me a 'are you really that crazy look' as I shook up the can.
I rolled my eyes as I opened the can a bit and heard the air come out of it, then the liquid started coming out and I slurped it up, "See. No mess and it tastes good."
"Whatever, let's go to the park," Kira said as she smiled at the cashier, "Sorry about that. She's just a bit crazy in the head."
"Thanks," I said as I walked out of the store.
We walked to the park and then we sat on the swings. I sipped at my soda as Kira talked about that really cute new guy named Kyle.
I dazed off and I didn't really hear a word she was saying because I saw more images flash through my head and I focused on them, but instead of seeing the green meadows that I usually saw... I saw a war and bodies... and then I saw a whole different thing. 2 people that looked like me... and that's when I realized that those were my parents... It all came so fast that I didn't really get to catch every feature, but I had a general idea and my journey began...
