Chapter 2~ Facing The Truth~
"What were they all doing to him? Why were the machines going crazy Sarah?" Bianca was crying, tears of rage, sadness, because she didn't know what was going to happen next. At the beginning, her father was fine, and there was no harm to neither one of them, but she went to school, came home, and now her father is dead, and she is an Orphan. "Honey, calm your mind, there is no easy way to say this, but your father's heart just stopped beating,-" after a short pause, Bianca replied, "And now, now he is dead." "I'm so sorry about what you have been through at your age, but aye, that is the truth." Now Bianca didn't care who saw her cry, she just could not hold it in. She didn't want to be who she was right now, she wished her mother and father was still alive, she wished they were all at home, looking through pictures, or eating dinner, anything but this. This was horrible.
"Now what am I supposed to do for the night's while? I Can't stay alone." "Well, I knew how this was going to turn out, so I thought about it, and it occured to me that if you wanted to, you could stay at my home until they get you into the foster care system, would you like that?" "The foster care system? But Sarah, I don't want to go there. At school, there are kids who are in that, and they say that their foster parents beat them, or They go without food for a couple days," Bianca said with a voice that was compounded with fear, and a little shame. "Well you'll have to go there for a while, but if you would like, I could renovate my home, and take you in, and I'll adopt you. Would that be better?" replied Sarah. "Aye, but how long will I have to be in foster care?" "It should only take me a little over three weeks to get your room set up, but then it'll take a little over seven weeks to get it offical by law, so a little over three months. I'm sorry dear, but that is the best that I can do, and trust me, if I could do any more I would." Just as Sarah was about to leave to take off from work, Bianca said, "Sarah," "Aye dear?" "Why have you been so kind to me, nobody else was as kind as you were, I mean, I'm very thankful, but why?" "Because people need compassion, and a place to go, and more importantly, they need someone to love them. I'll tell you more at home, for now, why don't you just rest."
As Bianca watched Sarah leave, she thought about what Sarah had told her, 'People need compassion, and a place to go, and more importantly someone the love them.' Now, I am goiing to have to face the truth,as hard as it may be. But I don't want to face the truth, it is too hard, I don't want my father to be dead, nor my mother, I bet that she would have loved me and helped me, and understood me more than my father had.
Once Sarah had come back to get Bianca, Bianca asked Sarah, "How do I face the truth," "Why dear, have your heart lead you and you will have the right answers."
