On The Sidewalk Bleeding.

Extracts from this document...


Leeanne Slade On The Sidewalk Bleeding I sat alone in my bedroom yet again finding myself recollecting Andy. I sat knelt on the end of my bed gazing into the reflection before me. All I could think of was little Marie, our daughter. She frequently asked about her father, Andy, but I had been too scared to tell her. Tonight was the night. It had been seven years to the day that he tragically died, and tonight I was going to tell Marie about her father's death. Finally. Later that evening, Marie and I were enjoying our evening meal, simple fish and chips. We sat at the table in the lounge of out small flat. It wasn't perfect but it suited us just fine.

I told him I loved him too. His eyes were filled with tears and fear. I continued to gaze into his eyes. I couldn't look away. Then, in an instant, he went limp. I remember the pain, It felt like half of me was lost and there was no way it would ever be found. What made it worse was that he had no idea I was pregnant. I didn't get the chance to tell him, he never knew about you Marie." I looked up after my story and wiped the tears from my face. I turned to loo and Marie, only to find her fast asleep next to me, clutching her teddy. I placed a blanket over her and lifted her to bed. "Maybe when she's older." I whispered to myself. The End. ...read more.
