Hi, my names Annie Rose Harts, and this is the story of my life. I'm fourteen years old, due to be fifteen next april. It's currently the month of March, so not a long wait. I used to live in a small town in Ohio with my family, but today were moving to southern Florida. A town named Boca Grande, the pictures looked nice, but I grew up here; I'm not sure if I'm strong enough to do this.
After saying my goodbyes, I gracefully walked to the car, with tears starting to flood my eyes. I evilly looked at my dad, or the, "one who's making us move", I should say instead. He rolled his eyes annoyed. My mom walked over to me and placed her hand on my shoulder, while kissing my forehead. I looked away from her and teared. I uneasily began to grab open the door, and started to crawl in, not wanting to. I looked out the back window and waved to all I knew... my friends, my home, my life.
"So... now that my life is over, who are our neighbors?" I said sadly.
"A family, a rich family, with a boy your age," my mom said grinning.
"Nothing is going to change my mind about this mom," I said plainly.
"Well, you won't be with him at all, Annie," my dad glared through me.
"Why not," I wondered.
"He isn't like us," my bitter dad informed me.
My mom screamed quietly at my dad, I wonder what he meant by "not like us".
"What your dad meant was, he is a different skin color Annie, and feel free to be with him," my mother said firmly.
"Dad, that's horrible of you to be like that, and it's rude, so please don't do that, one of my best friends wasn't white and you 'accepted' her," I warned.
He didn't respond.
I rolled my eyes in disgust of my racist father, and sat quietly until we reached the airport. The car ride to the airport was about and hour and a half, and I tried to sleep, but my dad wouldn't stop mumbling smart remarks under his breath.
We got out of the car, opened the trunk; grabbing our bags, and walked into the crowded airport. My mom tugged me along, making sure I wasn't trying to escape anytime soon.
We walked up the stairs to
our gate. I looked up at the big bold black print reading
B6, I continued on to the comfortable navy blue chairs.
It felt so good to be resting even if it was a resting point of
when I sat down.
I got up and nearly fell flat on my face, but caught myself on the desk where they were checking my boarding pass. They ripped half of it and gave it to me; I walked through the doors and reached the plane.
I felt the chilly breeze through the small gaps when I placed one foot into the plane.
"Good morning miss!" I jumped at the flight attendants squeaky voice.
"Hi, and you too," I said politely.
She nodded and then waved to my father behind me.
I searched for my seat,
finding it the furthest away from the front of the plane, no one
was sitting in the seat next to mine, after I put away my
I sat down and pulled out my Ipod, without turning it on I listened to the flight servers talk about the masks and the yellow thing I've always wanted to slide down on. Going on and on, and I think the only people that were actually listening were a couple of senior citizens who probably couldn't even hear whatever they were announcing.
I closed my eyes and discovered how tired I actually was, before we even took off I had fallen asleep.

I didn't remember waking
up, probably because I did it very calmly.
I looked out the window
and saw the clouds and the sunset in the distance, it was
beautiful, I could see everything that I wanted to. I looked down
and saw the alluring glass water rolling
"And what would you like to drink Miss?" I flinched as the server asked.
"Nothing, I'm good thank you," I answered.
CSHH, "This is your captain speaking! We will be arriving in Tampa in approximately three minutes, please make sure your seat belts are securely fastened and all electronic devices are being shut down. Thank you for flying with us!" the captain spoke over the monitor.
I stretched and began to
put my belongings back into my bag, accidentally throwing my cell
phone across to the aisle after the plane smacked the hard
ground. I tried to contain my sorrow as the woman whom I almost
bumped in the head handed it back to me with a smile on her
As I walked out of the plane my legs wobbled a bit until I got control of them, which took a good walk to our car they; transfered ours to florida. I blinked and felt the warm breeze blow through my hair, pulling it out of my face.
I inhaled and exhaled
before getting in the hot car, smelling the sweet tropical

We reached the house, it was a normal sized house on the outside, but enormous on the inside, I wasn't really in the mood to do anything quite yet.
My parents pointed where my room was; I walked in the small aqua colored room and set my bags down.
I climbed onto the light
blue four-post bed, and dozed off into a deep sleep, with the
sound of waves crashing into the wall of sand not too far from
