Lost-Personal Narrative

I had just gotten back from school when my world began to crumble around me. It was a Friday, so like any other kid who had just suffered through an entire week of excruciating labor, I was very excited to kick back and relax. Eagerly I dropped my crimson backpack to the floor, letting it fall with a loud thud that must have echoed through the entire house. Still in my school uniform, I plop onto my bed and pull out my phone. Maybe I’ll watch another episode of Lost, I think to myself, unaware that my life would change forever in the coming hours. You see, it was on this day, Friday, October 17th 2014, that one of my cats, Brenna, died. I knew this cat for my entire life. My parents had bought her, along with her twin brother, all the way …show more content…
I tried to resume the episode of Lost I was watching at home, but I was too distracted and too worried to pay deep attention to anything. Finally, after nearly an hour of waiting my mother returned clutching Brenna in her arms, eyes stained red from crying. The moment of realization hit me heavier than a hammer hits nails. It’s over. Brenna had been diagnosed with stomach cancer, an uncommon and almost rare disease that affects only older cats. She had been suffering from it for quite some time, but worst of the illness had hit her in the week before her untimely demise. As me and my siblings gave Brenna one last hug, my mom told us she had to be put down. I was in utter disbelief at this revelation, but inside I knew it was the right choice. Letting her live would only increase her pain and make her inevitable death all the more painful. I stroked Brenna’s fur one last time before my mother gave her to the veterinarians. After the nurses confirmed her death, we left Banfield in utter shambles, crying and sniffling. Although I knew Brenna’s pain was over, I still felt like she had passed her pain onto me. The weekend that followed was miserable, and taut with grief.

    Lost. Undecided. Those are just a few words I would’ve used if I saw myself back 5 years ago. That’s how I’m sure everyone saw me. I needed a way to push myself out of my comfort zone, something productive that would make me get out of bed in the morning and keep me out of the house when I needed to be out of the house. Then I found something that turned my life around 180 degrees. Here’s my story. I was born in the US. Then left to go to Ecuador (my parent’s native country) to learn Spanish. I…
