What if you hear “I’m sorry” within a day from three different men on three different circumstances? Will you still ignore it or will you think that these words are equivalent to a horrid event? One “I’m sorry” is enough. Two is too much. Three is horrible and it will make you say, “I can’t take this anymore”.

(3:00am)
 Peach cannot figure out why her loving boy friend for 4 years would leave a voice message at this time that sounds so queer. Puzzled by the urgency of the message from Phil, Peach immediately called him.
I don’t know when it started and why but I don’t love you anymore I’m serious Peach. I’m sorry.” He said in a low and whispery voice.
Those were the last words she heard before she hangs up the phone. Peach was shocked, bewildered and hopeful that it was only a night mare and if she goes back to sleep a better dream will muffle her. She doesn’t know how long she stayed up; all she knows is that she didn’t get any sleep since her conversation with Phil.
11:00am
She rushed outside her room when she heard her mom scream. She saw her dad with suitcases in his hands walking down the stairs and her mother begging her dad not to leave.
I’m sorry Peach” her father said without looking at her before he open the door and leave.
As the door behind him slowly closing her mother bellows and weeps; Peach runs towards her. She wanted to break down and cry louder than her mother but she commanded herself mentally not do such a thing. Not in this every moment. Peach found herself walking outside their house under the heat of the sun while the rain starts drizzling the ground. She needs to clear her head that’s what she thought. The last thing she wants is to feel the pain that Phil and her dad caused her. Two weathers happening at the same time just like the two people consecutively decided to walk out of her life.
8:00pm
The urgency in her aunt’s voice over the phone is an indication of a dreadful event. She doesn’t know what to think; horrible images are playing into her mind. Her aunt didn’t say who’s in the hospital and why, all she knows is that this is so horrible. She needs to prepare herself for whoever is in the hospital and she must not cry, she must not!.
I’m sorry Ms.Somners your grandfather didn’t make it” the doctor said.
 “This is only a dream”, she convinces herself. “No this is rather a night mare!” her mind is shouting in agony. This is seriously too much first Phil broke up with her. Next, her dad left without any explanations and now her grandpa is gone forever.  
This is officially the worst day ever like it’s a Friday the 13th that horrible things are happening to her all at once. She felt like she got strike three on a base ball game and now she’s out.  If Peach has the on and off button in her mind she would immediately press off so she would stop thinking things. This day is hard but facing tomorrow without the three important men in her life will be harder so she needs to be brave.
