The class bell rang and that's when I knew that our teacher was going to give us an assignment. Every Friday she gives us a new assignment, but this week's assignment was to write a story about our future. My face was so red from being nervous. "Have a great weekend and don't forget to do your assignment!" She shouted, "Or all of you will get an F on your report card for writing." "Yes, ma'am," the class replied. We all went to the bus terrified, but I was mostly!! I finally got home, and I told my mom about it! "Ok, sweetie don't think too big about your future and try not to write anything bad for your future have fun doing it though!" Mom exclaimed.
"Oh, take a shower I'm making spaghetti for dinner."
"Yummy!" I replied and I went into the shower.
I thought about what I was going to write. Not excited but pumped if that makes sense.
"Supper is ready!" mom shouted
I grabbed the green towel to place on the floor of the bathroom before I stepped out. Also grabbed the blue towel to dry my body and my hair before getting dressed. I quickly ran downstairs smelling the delicious aroma of the spaghetti.
"It tastes amazing Mom," I spoke
"I'm glad you like it!" She said happily
I went to my room and started to write my future. I wanted to finish it that night, so I stayed up until midnight because after all, it was the weekend. I went to bed and woke up at 7:42. I remembered my paper; I went to my room and there it was glowing on my black dresser I did not think anything of it. I thought the sunlight just hit the paper. I went to my friend's house for the weekend. We went on the bus together Monday morning and this is where I get nervous and started to sweat, I put my page in the turn in a bin and ran to my seat...
Eight years later I was eight teen, and I had ten dogs.
I asked my mom about the story I wrote in class eight years ago she had it in a memorial box and when I was on my way to her house I was thinking about when it was glowing blue in my room. I finally got to my mom's house and everything that I wrote down happened!! It said: Hi it's you from eight years ago. I just wanted to write what I hope my future is like. So, here it is! I hope I have a big house with ten dogs and a nice jeep." My mom sat me down to talk to me... she said that I have always had that special ability. Once when I was little, I wanted it to start raining so I could jump in muddy puddles, and out of nowhere, it start to rain. That is when she knew I had that power, but she never told me. She then burst into tears out of nowhere.
"What's wrong Mom? This is the greatest thing ever!" I exclaimed
"Remember when dad passed away?" She sobbed
"Yes... that was like thirteen years ago. Why are you crying now?" I answered
"Well, he died saving your power." She spoke
My eyes almost popped out of my head! "How?!"
"...he had powers too. The only way to save yours was to give you his. Once your powers are removed... you can't breathe anymore and eventually die." She cried harder.
I started to cry too. In disbelief, I was in shock that I never knew.
I was only five when he passed away. I miss him I just don't remember him. I started crying "I wish I could meet him just once more." I whispered.
The ground started to shake I ran into the house! There he was sitting on the couch. "You wished for me?" He said smiling.
"Dad that's you?" I said crying
"Yes, it is." He replied
I ran into his arms..."Does this mean I get one last day with you?" I sobbed
He smiled at me "Yes we get one last day together."
I jumped up to go get mom. She was sitting on the porch. I could see a tear rolling off her cheek about to go underneath her chin.
"Mom come in the house right now!!" I screamed happily
she came inside. When she saw him, she ran faster than Elaine Thompson-Herah herself! She cried in his arms without saying anything just looking at him and crying. We then went to my dad's favorite peer and had a picnic.
We were crying and smiling all day long. It was the best day ever I finally got to meet my father even if it was for only one day.
It was time to say goodbye though we didn't want to we had five minutes. Dad told us about how all the years didn't feel like a long time because once you're in heaven there's no such thing as time. "I love you," cried Mom. "I love you too." he kissed her cheek. "I love you Dad and I always will. "I promise I'll never forget you again." I swore he then whispered to me "We love because God first loved us. 1John 4:19" he then started to get thinner and thinner disappearing into the wind. "I love Y'all. Goodbye!" he hollered
I looked at mom, she was smiling while she was waving goodbye.
I stared at her for a second, I could see a tear forming in her eye. She looked at me and smiled "It's a happy tear." I leaned in to hug her smelling her perfume that smelt like raspberries and her hair smelt like coconut cream conditioner. She was wearing her favorite polka-dot dress for the picnic. I was also wearing my favorite dress. "He's in a better place now." She smiled
We both cried happily.
