You are not going anywhere for the next week.” Her mother fired back at her with a finality that was not to be argued with. “Mom for the last times its Maxi. And you can ground me all you want at your house but once I go to dads you have no say there for I’ll,” she said to her mother with her arms on her hips to show her mother how firm she was on getting this punishment revoked. “Well guess what Maxi your father and I have both agreed on this punishment so have fun with that plan.” Once her mother had her final say on the situation she turned and walked into the kitchen not wanting to hear anything Maxi had to say to this statement. This left Maxi on her own to reflect all that had just happened in her sparsely furnished home that her mother had just relocated into after her father and her divorced.

You try again, start over, again, but you don’t know how to begin. No one understands you; no one knows what you are going through, you’re alone or, at least, that’s what you think.…

Agapi was laying on a thick tree branch outside her home, humming a sweet tune to herself, gently tearing the pettles off a rose and letting them float away with the breeze, while she stared up at the small white specks that were glued on the heavens. She was an odd girl, or so I had heard. She was tranquil, yet wild. Obedient,…

    With the letter back in the envelope, she wondered if maybe holding it a day would allow her time to conjure up a good excuse. Her navy-blue, plaid skirt was caked with mud and her knee highs were splotched with blood. Upstairs, Marci heard a series of exasperated sighs and rolled her eyes. Once again, her mother was having a fit. First, she heard the familiar scuff of shoes and recognized the foot patterns of Silvia Aurora Herrero, just before she walked into the kitchen. Marci’s face lit…
