My mum looked like she had seen a ghost. I was in total shock. I was off school for a week my brothers accident really hurt me. When I finally got back in to school a week later, my mum still had not let me go down and see him because of the state he was in. When I got in to school a boy in my class had been telling everyone that he had died that they had turned the life support machine off. He mistakenly tried to tell me this. I hit him and pushed this boy through a window I got suspended for 2 weeks. That night when I got home I had to go down to see my brother because I had to make sure that he was ok.
