I looked out of the bus window as we passed by multiple orange leafed trees, today's my first day of kindergarten and I'm so hyped for it! Mommy dressed me in my pink dress that has little white bunnies on it, she tied my red hair into pigtails, and put my white slip on shoes over my socked covered feet. "I hope I make a lot of friends..maybe then someone will like me for who I am.." I muttered as I played with one of my pigtails, when the bus pulled up in front of the school I eagerly got out of my seat and made my way off the yellow vehicle. I bumped into this girl and dropped my barbie lunch bucket, "Hey watch you're going kid!" The girl yelled as she stormed off, I sighed heavily as I picked up my lunch bucket and walked into the school. "Ah you must be Sage Knight! So nice to have you in our class today my name is Miss Jean if you could take a seat at the front table we can all get ourselves situated!" The teacher known as Miss Jeans spoke a little too cheerfully, I blinked my blue eyes at her as I took a seat next to a girl with black hair, green eyes, and really pale skin. She was wearing jeans, a pink shirt, and sneakers she probably didn't have to dress up like how I did. "Hi my name is Sage what's your name?" I asked her as I sat beside her listening to the teacher talk, she looked at me and smiled softly as she replied "My name is Cassie but my parents call me Cass it's nice to meet you Sage." I grinned widely at her as I turned to face the teacher, 'Okay off to a good start! Maybe she'll be my friend..I'll ask if she'll be my friend at lunch hopefully she'll say yes!' I thought as I wrote down my ABC's as we was instructed to do. When the bell for lunch rang our teacher made us line up in a straight line at the door and told us to walk down to the cafeteria, "Hey Cass wanna sit with me when we get to the cafeteria?" I whispered in her ear so no one could hear me ask, I heard her giggle as she replied in a hush tone "Sure thing Sage." I walked into the cafeteria carrying my lunch bucket, I took a seat at one of the tables and waited for Cassie to get her lunch from the lunch ladies. "You don't eat school lunch Sage?" Cassie asked as she sat beside me, I looked at her tray and saw that she had a slice of pepperoni pizza on it. "No there are certain things I can't eat so my mommy likes to make sure that I'll have the right foods to eat while I'm at school." I replied as I zipped open my lunch bucket, I pulled out a green apple and took a bite from it. "Looks like to me that you eat a lot of healthy food." Cassie pointed out as she took a bite from her pizza, I looked into my lunch bucket and noticed a granola bar, carrots, and grapes were a part of my lunch for today. I smiled at my new friend and said "This food doesn't upset my tummy like other foods do so I have to eat like this," Cassie gave me a weird look but shrugged and continued to eat her pizza. After lunch was over it was story time in the class room, Miss Jean had us all sit on the reading carpet I of course made sure to sit beside Cassie. "Alright class today we're going to be readingThe Three Little Pigs if you have any questions about the story I'll be sure to answer them once the story is over." As Miss Jean was reading a lot of my class mates had fallen asleep even Cassie but I don't blame her she seemed pretty tired, "And the pigs lived happily ever after..Now are there any questions about the story?" Miss Jean asked, I raised my pale hand and smiled at her. She smiled back and asked "Yes? What is your question Sage?" I slowly put my hand down while replying "Why say they lived happily ever after? There's no such thing as those so..Why lie?" Miss Jean looked shocked by my question but she laughed it off, "It's only a fairy tale dear no need to be so literal about it now wake up the others it's time for recess!" After school was over I sat on the same bus that I rode this morning, I stared at the window to watch the leafs on the tree sway as the wind blew. 'What did she mean by being literal..It's true..Happily ever afters don't exist so why lie to us?' I thought as the bus pulled up to my bus stop, I got off the bus and began to walk down the sidewalk to my two story white house, the windows had blue shutters on them that didn't close. I walked up to the porch but stopped when I heard a loud scream coming from inside, "Mommy!?" I yelled as I swung open the front door. To my horror there stood a man in a black mask pulling a bloodied knife out of my mother's dead body, I began to hyperventilate as I backed up against the wall. My fear was beginning to choke me as the man took a few steps towards me, "Don't worry brat I won't kill you, I was only here to fulfill my mission and I did so now good bye." The man's raspy voice rang through my ears as he left my house, I whimpered as I ran over to my mother's corpse. "M-Mommy wake up! P-Please! D-Daddy will be home..w-we have t-to make d-dinner.." My voice began to crack as I allowed me tears to flow down my pale face, my mother's once sterling white shirt was now stained red with her own blood. Her once straightened strawberry blonde hair was all knotted and matted with blood, the look of fear never leaving her face. "Sage? Oh my God Sage honey what happened!?" My father's voice sounded panicked as he ran from the front door over to me and my mother's body. I sniffled and looked up at him tears brimming my vibrant blue eyes as I asked "D-Daddy w-where's mommy? I-Is she in h-heaven w-with grandma?" I could see tears fill my father's green eyes as he pulled me into a tight embrace, "Y-Yes sweetie..m-mommy is in heaven..s-she's in a better place." He whispered as he held me tightly stroking my hair. A few days passed since the incident with the masked man, daddy and I already had mommy's funeral..I miss her so much. People keep telling me it's going to be alright, that the pain will stop but in all honesty I don't think this over baring pain will ever stop. Every time I look at daddy he tends to tear up a little, I think he thinks I'm ugly but he tells me it's cause I look like mommy. I went back to school on Monday but I didn't talk to anyone, not even Cassie I was too afraid to even speak to anyone. Every body always asks me if I'm okay I just smile and say yes I'm okay, but on the inside I'm not okay..I could've helped mommy if only I'd gotten home sooner. After school that day I came home to see daddy drinking, he's been buying more alcohol lately maybe he misses mommy. I went up to my room, I shut and locked the door as I slid down it onto the floor. I allowed my tears to fall as I muttered "I-It's my fault mommy's gone..I-I'm a terrible daughter..p-please forgive me God..p-please."
