She was walking down the street thinking of all the things going on through out her life. She

watched as all the cars pass her by on her way to the house where she lives. As she walked up

to the drive way, she looked through the window and seen her parents yelling and throwing glass

around. She walked up the stairs to the porch and opened the screen door.She could hear her

parents yelling and screaming and as soon as she opened the door, there was a moment of

silence. She looked at the table and seen beer cans scattered all around. She looked at her

parents then ran to her room with tears rolling down her face. She looked in the mirror and down

at the marks on her skin. She heard footsteps coming up stairs that led to her room and she

seen her door slam open against her wall and the father came in charging at her like a bull at full

speed. He took his fist and punched her across her face leaving a black eye. He kept throwing

punches and her mom came in, slammed her daughter against the wall, kicking her while

holding the girls arm. The girl broke loose and ran outside bleeding and more bruises covering her.

The neighbor across the street ran to her to give her a hug. She laid her head on his shoulder and

whispered in his ear saying "thank you sir but I really have to go." He pulled his phone out and

called the police. She watched as the officers drove passed her in the drive way and they ran

in the house. She looked at the man and smiled her first smile and gave him another hug crying

with tears of joy and he smiled back at her and hugged her back. She turned and watched as the

officers took her parents in the police cars and one officer walked up to the little girl and said "you

are safe now," then he turned and walked to the car. He opened the door and looked back at the

girl who was smiling and playing her first game of tag and then he looked back at her parents who

were yelling at eachother and he said "I'm glad your child doesn't take after you," and both parents

were silent and they looked at their daughter and realized what they have done and they should've

treated her better instead of putting beer before their own daughter but it's best for her to be with the

man who has saved their seven year old daughter's life instead of her living and dying in sorrow. As

her parents were being driven away to jail, she watched and just thought that now she can move on

and have a good life now, and she was right, she had a wonderful life. Now she could go to

school with no more new bruises and she could be happy and not have so much sorrow in

her life. She did many things for the first time, like going to a demolition derby, playing

paintball, going to monster truck shows, and even celebrated holidays. For Thanksgiving

she met the rest of her new family and for Christmas she got new clothes.

A few days before her Birthday she started to get really sick and was taken to the hospital.

Each day that passed, she got worse. The guy that she now lives with came to visit her

and she gave him a hug when she first seen him and he hugged her back. She smiled and

looked at him and whispered to him saying "I love you dad," then gave him a kiss on the cheeks

and he smiled back and said "I love you too." That night he went home and the next day was her

Birthday so he went and bought a diamond necklace with a diamond heart on it. He went back to

the hospital and the girl gave him a hug saying "I missed you" and he said "I missed you too and

Happy Birthday" and he put the necklace around her neck. She looked at it and started crying.

She looked at him and gave him a hug saying "wow, it's beautiful, thank you so much" and hugged

him tightly and said to him "I love you so much and no one was ever this nice to me" and he

hugged her and told her that he loved her too and gave her a kiss on the forehead, but then he felt

her loosen up her grip. He looked at her and seen that she has died in his arms. He began to cry

and the nurses came in and said it was from to much abuse but she didn't die in sorrow, she died

in happiness, care, and love. The day of the funeral, everyone that knew her were there, even her

real parents were there. Her real parents were crying because of what they have done. The man

was there as well and he kept the necklace on her neck so a part of him will always be with her.

The days after her death were different, nothing was the same, but everyone remembered the girl

who never gave up on life even though it was harsh and complicated in the beginning.
