Three days ago

My family and I (my two brothers 1 sister mom and dad) are going on a vacation to california from colorado.  It's been non stop arguing for hours.  Having my brothers next to each other in a car worst idea yet.  My little sister is screaming so much I feel like my head is going to explode.  I Couldn't take it anymore.

“SHUT UP ALICE!” I yelled

But instead of her stopping she just screamed more.  There wasn't really anything to do so i was sorta ese dropping on my parents conversation.  They kept saying something about a shortcut in california to get to our hotel quicker.  Well i guess we will get out of the car sooner. At the same time Jacob, Jayden (my brothers), Alice and I all started to softly say shortcut, then got louder the more we said it. Mom looked back and yelled fine.

“Whooooo!” We all screamed.

Present day

My family and I were on a vacation when the car broke down.  It's been several days in this stupid desert… in the middle of nowhere.  We are running low on water and food is growing scarce. My father is going insane he is starting to scare my little sister.  I'm trying to do what I can but nothing is working everyone is at war.  Im sitting here and am just about to walk off maybe sneak away while everyone is asleep, maybe i'll find some civilisation and I can get help.  I just don't know what to do.  

The next day, we just ran out of water and now will only be able to last like two to three days without it.  My brothers haven't been able to go a second without arguing and i'm afraid that they will beat eachother up.  I've decided it’s final that i'm going to leave… just maybe with my family.  

“Um guys.”

No one responds so I get everyone into a crowd-ish thing and tell them we have to leave or else we will die. Dad doesn't want to go with me and everyone else but I have to go.  tears start to fill my eyes as he walks back to the car.  I know I have to stay strong I will come back for him.  I yell let's go and start to lead the way into the unknown


The unknown


before I get to far from the car I run back and grab Alice’s(my little sister) blanket.  It's a big blanket so I could wrap her up and carry her easer.  oudy oudy upey she would yell at me so I would pick her up.  My real name is odrabella.  Maybe about thirty minutes into the walk Jayden and jake(my brothers there real names are Jayden and Jacob,  and Jacob is older by 5 minutes.) started arguing

“your such a dork Jayden” Jacob said taunting him

“but you're such a count dorkula!” Jayden yelled

They would argue about the stupidest things.  Then I hear a loud slapping noise and I snap my head back and Jacob was beating up Jayden.  he had blood on his face and hair, scratches everywhere, he was crying.  I ran over and pushed Jacob out of the way and sat JAyden up on a rock because he couldn't stand anymore.  I gave him a hug and said it will be ok.  Then I stood up looking at Jake.  He snickered and looked back at me.

“You can't just go beating up people,  you have to stop and I know you won't.” I take a pause and tears fill my eyes again but I wipe them away.  Then I look away and signal for him to leave.  

“Aww princess you don't want me to leave, do you?”

“Just go already!”I snap at Jake

He starts walking away and mom falls to the ground right next to Jayden.  She starts coughing and blood runs out of her mouth.  Jacob runs back and turns her to her side.  He thinks that that will stop the internal bleeding.  I get up and look around and no one's there. I sit back down and she stopped bleeding...and breathing.  I feel her pulse and it has stopped.  

“She’s...dead.” I said.

I look at Jacob.

“You killed her!”  I yell with anger in my voice.

“Whoa whoa whoa princess I tried to save her, she was my mother to.”He tried to reason with me

“It's all your fault!” I scream

He walks over to Jayden and apologises very sarcastically.  Jayden  just looks at him.  Alice sat there next to Jake and Jayden not realizing that mom was dead.  Alice looked over at mom and asked why she was sleeping and then I had to explain to my little sister that she is dead.  then she sits next to Jayden with her head on her knees.  Jake yelled that's it and actually walked off.  So now it's just Alice, Jayden, and I.
