The story is inspired by this poem
mommy...Johnny brought a gun to school,
He told his friends that it was cool,
And when he pulled the trigger back,
It shot with a great, huge crack.
Mommy, I was a good girl, I did what I was told,
I went to school, I got straight A's, I even got the gold!
When I went to school that day,
I never said good-bye.
I'm sorry that I had to go, But Mommy, please don't cry.
When Johnny shot the gun, he hit me and another,
And all because Johnny, got the gun from his brother.
Mommy, please tell Daddy; That I love him very much,
And please tell Zack; my boyfriend; That it wasn't just a crush.
And tell my big sister; That she is the only one now,
And tell my dear sweet grandmother; I'll be waiting for her now
And tell my wonderful friends; That they always were the best
Mommy, I'm not the first, I'm no better than the rest
Mommy, tell my teachers; I won't show up for class,
And never to forget this, And please don't let this pass
Mommy, why'd it have to be me? No one, though. deserves this.
But mommy, it's not fair, I left without a kiss.
And Mommy tell the doctors; I know that they really did try
I think I even saw one doctor, trying not to cry.
Mommy, I'm slowly dying, with a bullet in my chest,
But Mommy please remember, I'm in heaven with the rest
When I heard that great, big crack, I ran as fast as I could
please listen to me if you would,
I wanted to go to college, I wanted to try things that were new
I guess I'm not going with Daddy, On that trip to the new zoo
I wanted to get married, I wanted to have a kid,
I wanted to be an actress, I really wanted to live.
But Mommy I must go now, The time is getting late,
Mommy, tell my Zack, I'm sorry to cancel the date.
I love you Mommy, I always have, I know you know its true
And Mommy all I need to say is, "Mommy, I love you"
What if Bella had a sister?
I shouldn't be thinking about her, it brings too much of sadness, but I can't help it. To this exact day ten years ago, my sister was killed. She was shot by a stupid boy who brought a gun to school. My sister, Cheyanne Amelia Swan. She was only two years younger than me. When I was two years old, my parents tried to get back together. It didn't work out but my mother got another kid. I remember that day like it was just yesterday, (Flashback). I was walking on the pavement going to school. I was eight years old and I was in second grade. My sister Cheyanne, she liked to be called Annie, was only six and still in preschool. (grade 0). Our school was only like a few blocks away so my mom allowed us to work there. I didn't like my school, it was too snobby. It was a flash school with all the little rich kids. My mom had to fork out a lot every month to pay. Sometimes we didn't even have bread in the house course of that. I had begged and pleaded with my mother not too send me there. I wanted to go to the school my mom worked at. But of course my mum said no. So that was how I found myself that morning, walking to school with my younger sister. Since pre-school didn't have to wear a uniform, my sister Annie took advantage of that. She wore ludicrous stuff to school.
Once she even went in a plastic bag. Today she was wearing a pink fairy dress with net on it. She also had a set of wings on, and she begged me to plait her gold hair. Tucked between her hair was her wand with a star. To top it all, she had on these fake plastic heals which were purple. Annie kept slipping in the heels every few seconds, which made me having to stop and pick her up. I was getting late for school and being a goody two-shoes didn't want to be late. After she got to the gate of her pre-school, Annie insisted she give me a big sloppy wet kiss. I hastily wiped it off and went to class. At third period, I was called to the office and one of the secretary's took me home. I remembered screaming at her and asking what was wrong. Of course, she didn't tell me. When I got home, my mom was crying, and my sister was nowhere to be seen. After my mom told me the news, that my sister been been shot. I couldn't believe it. I had just seen her 2 hours earlier. Y whole body was in shock, it was numb and my mind was in denial. I couldn't comprehend it. How could my sister have been shot, she was only six years old, still a baby, still my little sister too tease. She was gone, I would never see her again. (End flashback)
I stared at the locket for what seemed like the tenth time that day. It was a picture of me, and Annie in the garden. You could see the flowers in the background. It had been a long time since Annie, died, but I still felt like sobbing a gut wrenching sobbing. I missed her, even though Annie and I had our differences. I still miss her. I missed her like how I missed Edward when he left,but there was a difference, he was still alive
