    Emma pulled up to the small ranch that she had grown up in. Although she hadn't visited in years, it was exactly as she had remembered. The powder blue house with white shutters and a white door. The lush bushes circled the house. But now there was a for sale sign on the lawn, one that would be taken down tomorrow after the papers were signed. Emma got out of her car and and turned the key in the door for the first time in seven years. She creaked the door open. The house was dull and dark. When she stepped in, a life she had long forgotten came rushing back. How could she have forgotten the kitchen where she did her homework every day after school as her mother gossiped on the phone? The living room where her family camped out in while watching old movies during snow storms? The dining room where game night would take place every Wednesday night; her father always let her win. The spare room where she would read on the windowsill on rainy days? The bathroom where she would fail every weekend to curl her hair and apply eyeliner? Her parents’ bright yellow room, where her father would emerge from, yawning, every morning to knock on Emma’s door to wake her up. He did that ever morning when she was a child, as well as every day for the past two years. Emma sat in the kitchen. She stared at the phone from which her mother had called her to inform her of her father’s diagnosis three years ago. “He’s showing signs of Alzheimer's. A lot of signs, it was all very quick,” Her…

    He slammed me against the locker. Pain spread through my body like wildfire. “Give it to me or you’ll suffer more than this,” he gritted through his teeth. “I don’t have it,” I managed to get through. A punch to the stomach. So much for standing up to bullies. After thirty seconds or so in pain, I stood up, thrusted my hand into my pocket and shoved a $4 bill into his chest. “Next time, don’t try to be so brave,” he breathed. And he walked away clutching my money in his hand. Everybody knew that…

    It was day 9 of the 12-day cruise. Sitting with my family at the dinner table, I interrupted the conversation and asked if I could be excused so I could go see some friends that I had met on our cruise. I got the go ahead and the time I had to be back in the cabin that night. Normally my curfew is 12am, but that night in particular I thought I could stretch it a bit because we had no obligations for the next morning. I went back to the room, changed, grabbed my phone then went out. The usual…

    “Great America, here I come,” I say groggily but excitedly as I wake up. Once I’m fully awake, I jump out of bed, say good morning to my mom, brush my teeth, and throw on my bathing suit with some clothes over. Grabbing my drawstring bag, I compile a list of things to bring. I start grabbing items from around the house, “Sunscreen: check, towel: check, phone: check, money: check,” I say in my head as I find them. And last but definitely not least, I can’t forget Scarlett and my’s map route of…

    I remember seldom things in life. Maybe my horrible memory can be attributed to the thousands of Diet Coke I drank as a kid and their alleged nasty side effects to memory. Maybe it’s attributed to my tendency to focus on the minute details and not the whole picture. Or maybe it is just a personal choice, a personal decision to ignore what life has brought me and to somehow use the bits I can recall to construct some fairytale. I wish that this process would have happened when I felt like I was…

    It had been a normal Friday for any 5th grader at Evans City Elementary School. The bell had rang signaling the end of recess and the start of a very long awaited for weekend. I had went home like always to be greeted by my dog who had been over joyed of the fact I was finally home.
