My name is Emma, I lost my mother and father when I was 8 years old. I have to struggle to eat and survive, my father’s family took all of my father property. Since then I have only one special friend, best friend, mother, brother, father and even sister, I call her my dear diary. We struggle together, we have been through a hard time together, and we even starve together when we have no food. She was the last birthday gift my mother gave me before she died, and that makes it special. I beg for money to buy food every day and sometimes a very kind woman brings me food and give me money, but sometimes nobody is willing to help the poor.

Today is my birthday, I was born on January 1st, 1997, and I turn 18 today. My parent died 10 years ago. Today is nothing but a sad day, there is no reason for me to be happy because my birthday brings sad memory about how I and my family celebrates my birthday. I looked at my diary and smiled, “I know you will always be there for me” I said. As I was thinking, all of a sudden I felt a pain in my stomach. I have an ulcer and I think it is getting worse. I cried really loud, I can’t bare the pain. That was all I can remember until I opened my eyes and found myself on a bed. “Help” I yelled, as a nurse came in. “What can I do for you, ma’am? “Asked the nurse. “Where am I? What am I doing here?” I asked. A man brought you here, he said he saw you in an uncompleted building, where you were lying helplessly.” Said the nurse. “Thanks, but have you seen my diary?” I asked. “The man that brought you here didn’t drop your diary, and I am sorry ma’am but you need to go back to sleep,” said the nurse. I closed my eyes and sleep.

I opened my eyes after like two hours, I called for the nurse. Another nurse came in and asked what the problem was “when will I be discharged” I asked, the nurse said you will be discharged tomorrow because it is already late in the night. As I was talking to the nurse, I heard a knock on the door and the nurse said to come it, it was a calm looking young man. “Hi,” he said and I answered back, “Are you the man that brought me here?” I asked “yes, is there any problem,” he asked “no I was just asking to thank you” I answered, “it’s no problem, I can’t just leave you like that,” he said. As we continued our discussion.

 
 
 

Finally, I will be discharged from the hospital today. The doctor came to my room last night to remove the drip. As I woke up, the kind young man came in “good morning, I brought you breakfast I know you will be hungry by now.” “Thanks”, I said. He looked at me and smiled, “OH I am sorry, I forgot to tell you my name, and my name is Alex, what about you” he asked, “my name is Emma” I said as we continue the introduction. After the doctor discharged me, Alex paid all the bills, he is such a kind and loving young man. He offered to take me to a restaurant so we can eat lunch and get to know each other. After we finished eating Alex paid all the bills again and we got back into the car, it was getting dark I guess our lunch turned into dinner. I don’t know where he is taking me but I know we are heading somewhere “where are we going?” I asked “it is a surprise,” he said as he continues driving. “Thanks for saving my life,” I said and he said “it’s no problem” and continue driving. He parked in front of a shopping complex and we got down of the car, the shopping complex was really big, as we enter the shopping complex tears fell down my eyes, “is anything wrong? Don’t you like this place? He asked,  “ I am fine, this place is just so beautiful” I said, as I wipe my tears, I didn’t want Alex to know about my life because I don’t want any pity party. We shopped and shopped till it gets dark, even the store closed. It was really fun and I tried on some clothes and Alex also bought some clothes. After we finished shopping, Alex paid for the clothes, shoes, bags and accessories I bought. It was really fun. When we get outside, it was raining, we didn’t even know when it started raining. Alex used his jacket to cover us and opened the door of the car really quickly. As he gets in the car, he turned on the heater in the car. “ thank you for everything, you are such a kind man” I said, “ can you please stop thanking me, I didn’t do anything for you, so you can  be thanking me.” Said Alex. “You know it’s really late and it’s raining, do you want to come sleepover in my house? I mean if you don’t mind” he offered, I was thinking, does he think I have a house, I mean he meet me in an uncompleted building “sure, I guess, I will love to sleepover in your house, thanks for the offer” I said and he smiled. After like five minutes, we arrived at his house, it was big and beautiful, “do you live here alone?” I asked “yes, why? Is it dirty?” he said “no it is beautiful, ” I said “thank, I tried,” he said as we go into the house. The inside of the house is like a paradise, it was really cold, but I didn’t want to say anything, but I think Alex noticed I was freezing, so he turned off the air conditioner, it has been long since I felt the air conditioning air. I felt really embarrassed. “Do you feel like eating anything?” he asked. “No I am fine, thank you, “I said. After like five minutes he asked me if I want to watch a movie and I said sure, he put a scary in the DVD player and sat next to me. I was wondering if he taught I will be scared, because I am not, I use to watch scary movies when I was a kid. I fell asleep as we were watching the movie.

?

Good morning” Alex greeted as he taps me to wake up. He gave me a cup of tea, as I got up from bed “good morning” I said. Alex looks a little sad or mad, I don’t know but I didn’t bother asking him. “How was your sleep?” Alex asked.” It was fine to thank you and yours?” I said. “Its fine thanks,” Said Alex. “Thanks for everything, it is really rare to see anybody to help a stranger these days,” I said. “It’s okay I love helping people,walk,” said Alex as he walks out of the room. I went to the bathroom to take a shower, and I wore some of the clothe I bought yesterday. As I get down stairs, Alex has already made breakfast, I felt like a queen, “what are you doing Alex?” I asked “I am just making breakfast, you know after yesterday’s stressful journey. Said Alex, as I get down the stairs and sit in the dining. “You look beautiful by the way,” said Alex, thanks I replied. After breakfast we sat down and talk till it is noon, he was a good cook. “I should probably get going, I have a long journey ahead of me, thanks for everything” I said, hoping that Alex will to stay, but unfortunately he didn’t. All he said was “are you sure you will be okay? And if you need anything you know where I live” so I guess I will have to go back to leaving on the street. As I continue walking, I remembered that I haven’t have Alex if he have my diary or not, so I turned back and go back to Alex house, when I got to his house, I knocked and knocked for two minutes, but nobody opened the door. I sat down for like few minutes then I started knocking again, then I heard a voice yelling really loud saying “ get out of here, I don’t want to see anybody.” At first I wanted to turn back and come back later, but I know he is not ok and he can just hurt himself and I can’t just leave him like that. “CAN YOU PLEASE OPEN THE DOOR, its ME EMMA” I yelled, all of a sudden everything become quiet. I knocked again, really hard, as Alex open the door and tries to wipe his tears and pretended like nothing actually happen. “Emma…. How are you? You came back… what is the problem?” he asked “um I don’t know, I came to ask if you have my dairy when you-you know, when you pick me up from the uncompleted building, I forgot to ask you the two days ago, but that can wait, what is wrong with you, are you okay?” I asked “I-I am fine” he says as he wiped his tears “but you was crying, I heard you, and you were upset” I said as he hugged me and I had no choice but to hug back, even though I don’t like hugging people, I think it is just a way for people to be touching each other, and I pat his back. We did that for few minutes before we sat down. “I am tired of life, why does bad things always happen to me? Is it because I come from a rich family? Is that why every girl just come to my life, take my money and get out of my life?” I felt really bad, but there is nothing I could do. I hugged him “I am sorry, everything will be fine, I am right here if you need anything, I am sure you deserve better than all those girls” I said. “ thanks he said” as he got up “ um I have your diary, it’s in my room, I will go get it for you, oh and I am sorry about this morning I didn’t want you to leave like that I was just really upset” he said.  As he went to his room, when he got back he sat next to me “I have a confession, I might have read your diary” he said, “its okay, and I don’t have any secrets in there.” I said. “Thanks, but why do you only write sad things in there, are you every happy? He asked. “ I use to be happy ten years ago before my parent died, but they died ten years ago and since then I have no reason to be happy, I only have my diary, it was the last birthday present my mother gave me, I didn’t want to tell you these but I have to , I don’t have a home or anywhere to sleep, I just sleep anywhere” I said as tears roll down my cheek, and I wipe it up quickly, “ but why didn’t you tell me?” Asked Alex, “Because I didn’t want any pity party,” I said, “um you know you can live here if you want to, I mean if you don’t mind.” I think of saying no but apart from the fact that I don’t have anywhere to sleep, I can’t leave Alex like this, he will just kill himself, “ sure, I will love to live with you.” I said. “We should go out and have fun” Alex suggested. “YES,” I yelled and smile.
