I remember the day where nothing and no one was the same ever again. It all started with me, then the world.


Hello, I am Mary-Kate Harris. I live in a home close to the shore of the Gulf of Mexico. I was born on July 1st in a bake of a truck. I would like to start my story on a day that changed me and the world. A day that change my life forever.


It was July 1st , my 18th  birthday.  I woke up in a daze.  My mother walked in with a cake and 18 candles light on top. I almost frogot my own birthday. Every single birthday that I had she world sing a song and sing it so loud that everyone in the hole town could hear it. She started to sing “happy birthday” to me. I was so embarrassed so i got up and pushed out.  As I tried a  little creek like the sound of a old door opening. I had no intention on being kidnapped but . . . . . . “BANG”, a sound so loud it sounded like the the Earth was cracking beneath me, The sound echoed through the house. A man came barging in with a gun in each hand pointing and my mother and I.


“ Get into the car ”, the man said, “ now! ” I darted out the door. All I heared was a gun shoot, “BAM”. I could feel my heart break like I was the one that was shoot. I know exactly who died that day, and it was not my mom. I fell to my knees, breathing heavily. All I could remember was a face I could not make out. All my memories filled my head. I felt a needle shoot through my arm, and all those memories were forgotten.


I felt a hand touch my lower back and my thighs. I was lifted up of the ground. I heard a soft, kind voice of a man say, “It will be okay. We will get you safe. No one will hide you again.” I had no idea what that meant. I felt a hand be placed on my head, it was his, he was stroking his thumb back and forth on my head. It felt like I was the one that was died.


. . . . . . . . . . . .

I woke up to my head being blank. No thoughts, no memories, no mom. My eyes regain their focus. I looked around to see a man with a face that I have seen before.


“Where is my mother” I commanded.


“She was not your mother. And . . . she is . . . . um . . dead,” he said with a soft voice.


“No she can’t be. She WAS too my mom she loved me. She was the only one that I had. And you took her away from me,” Right then I started to cry. I could not stop. The man got up and came over to me. I wanted to run away , but all could do was sit there and cry. He set down next to me and wrapped his arms around me.


“It will be all right. All these memories will fade away soon. It will leave with the pain” he said to comfort me.


All of my pain, all my tears, all the thing that I had lost were gone. I felt safe. I tried to pull away but my body wouldn't let me. He let go of me and my heart sank. He pulled something out of his pocket. I could not see what it was but a tear fell from his cheek onto the it. I set there not saying a word. Just set wondering what would happen next. 


"It is you", he said,"It is you and me. If you do not remmember I am Luke. Your brother."
