A Day which I will remember for the Rest of my Life

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

A Day which I will remember for the Rest of my Life It was the day I thought would never happen to my family. It had happened to a few of my friends, but of course you never think it might happen to you. You always think of how it might affect your life if ever it did happen to you. But you can never plan or think of how you may react when it actually does. By now you are probably thinking what day could change the rest of my life when I am only fifteen. But there was a day that could and for me it was not in a good way, which is how I might have liked it. Parents speaking, seeing my dad at weekends, see how much they both loved me. But no for me it was the opposite; parents fighting, when dad rung their conversation would be "Are the kids there?" and mum would just hand one of us the phone. Not the way two people who loved each other for 18 years might communicate but that's how it was... Whatever way I looked at it, it was not a happy time of my life and it is still going on today as you read this but here's how it all happened. My mum told us that she and dad were going to be splitting up, just one month after their 14th anniversary. ...read more.

The day before we left my mum took us to see my terminally ill great aunt, Eileen, who we had known quite well when she had lived in England, a few years back. She was very tired and doctors said that they didn't know how much longer she would go on for but we all knew she would fight it all the way. Soon we had to leave for the ferry but first we would have to drive from Cork to Rosslare. It was one of the longest journeys I have ever had to make. My mum was tired, my brother asleep and me, well I tried to keep busy so that no one knew that I was worried in case my dad showed up at OUR home. When we arrived home we dropped our bags off and went straight round to see my nan and granddad to thank them for letting us go and also to collect our dogs as they had looked after them while we were away. Later that day, while we were still round my nans house we got a phone call from Ireland letting us know that my great aunt Eileen had died about ten minutes ago. My mum broke down into tears but was glad she had got to see her aunt before she passed away, peacefully. We booked a place on the Swansea-Cork ferry so that my mum could go to the funeral 3 days later. ...read more.

Conclusion

That day had the same effect on my mum, as it did on me. However, it has effected my brother differently. He has become more like how my dad was before he left; aggressive, argumentative and threatening. He hasn't noticed it himself but everyone else has. We all think that it is the worst thing to happen, having my brother turning out more and more like my dad!! I would like to see my dad again but I'm not quite sure whether it would be a good thing or not, as I would probably end up having a big punch up with him. I would also end up telling him what I really think of him and the way he acted about the whole thing, which is that he is a lying, cheating alcoholic, woman-beater, who deserves everything he gets in life. Everyone knows how I feel about him and what I would do if I ever saw him, so they try to discourage me from speaking or going to see him because they fear what I might do to him. They also try not talk about him when I'm around. So now you know how just one day can affect the life of a fifteen-year-old and why you can remember that day for the rest of your life. However, I may have got rid of one the person I hate the most but my brother is turning out like him more and more each day so I have to try and ignore it otherwise I will be in fear of my brother for the rest of my life as well...
