When I woke up that morning, I didn't realize how my life would change. My favorite spot was always the roof. I loved how I could see everything, I felt invincible. I soon knew I couldn't have been more wrong.

I went out as I always did. I would climb through the window and refused to use the door. I forgot one simple thing that day, it had rained the night before. As I stepped out my foot slipped and the rest of me slipped with it. My hand lunged for something to hold onto but I realized it was no use. The world seemed to slow as the ground got closer and soon everything went black.

As my eyes opened the light was blinding. It took a while for me to finally see but I could hear a calm voice calling out to me. The voice sounding like hers but that was impossible. Two years ago my mother had been diagnosed with lung cancer and her fight was short before she lost. She yelled that I shouldn't be there. She screamed that I didn't belong. I saw her and just wanted to run to her and never let her go again but I couldn't, she wouldn't let me.

Soon I remembered what had happened and the horror rushed over me. Slowly I asked if I was dead. My voice cracked on the last word but she knew what I meant. Finally she gave me the hug I wanted, the hug I needed. I wanted to stay like that forever but she told me my father still needed me. A short moment later she whispered good-bye and the light shone again.

I saw strange people I had never met before standing over me. They soon backed away revealing the machines that beeped as I would breath and finally I saw the familiar eyes of my father.
