    “Can you promise me something?” Maybe it was the serious tone in his voice, or, just that particular arrangement of words, but Shawn’s question made Celia panic. “That depends…” she said with hesitance. “Promise me you’ll wipe the extra ice cream off my face before we leave.” Celia instantly relaxed and began laughing. “You know,” said Shawn, his tone heavy with sarcasm, “it’s rude to laugh at people. Especially those with disabilities.” Celia gasped dramatically. “How dare you accuse me of such a thing! I am appalled that you hold such an unfavorable opinion of me.” It was Shawn’s turn to laugh, “Nice vocabulary you got there.” “Thanks,” said Celia, still joking. “It’s new.” Shawn’s smile widened again. “I see.

Even though the whole family knew that he had Kidney Failure and Diabetes, we prayed for a miracle. The whole experience happened rather quickly. In my family, it is our belief that if it is God’s plan let it be, so if it was His plan for my uncle to still be here, he would be. All of this happened a week before Thanksgiving, the time of the year when I should be thankful for what I have,…

    Despite being exhausted from the day’s events, I didn’t sleep much at Char’s. Not only did I not have my sleeping pills, but my mind was whirling with possibilities of what Aiden and Mason meant by “tomorrow.” Which is today. Meaning something is happening today. And I still don’t know what it is. But I do know that I’d rather have nothing happen. Of course deep down, I really wish I could tear Kaitlyn and Ryan a new one for messing with me, but I can’t. I had all night at Char’s to think…
