One summers' Day

Extracts from this document...


One summers' Day I walked over to the refrigerator and helped myself to the orange juice. Sarah was in the laundry room adjacent to the kitchen. She was talking to me about something, but I don't think I was listening. I poured the orange juice and found my usual seat in front of the television. On weekend afternoons, if we were at Sarah's house, we always watched MTV, no matter what else was actually on. We had just returned from the beach. Sarah recently bought a new couch and it was so comfortable. It made watching MTV like a glass of ice, cold water on a fiery, hot day. Sarah had a small, but everyone else hears roomy house and everything that happened in it in the house, perfectly. Mostly because she had wood floors, but also because the walls are pretty thin. Her living room, where I was, had a new couch, a new stereo, and a new entertainment system . . . the works. Windows all around you facing the streets surround Sarah's living room, which really unnerves me. ...read more.


It was the kind of van I imagine a rapist would be driving or, when you watch scary movies, the vans that pick up little kids off the neighborhood streets. He ran up the steps of Sarah's porch and started to bang on the glass of the front door. As if I couldn't see, him and he couldn't see me. The second his fist hit the glass was the same second my heart hit my rib cage and my stomach plummeted to the ground. What should I do? I thought for a split second. I looked into eyes of the man and saw the whiteness around his pupil grow. Cautiously, I walked over to the door and turned the knob slowly. The man had dark hair and dark skin. He started to talk to fast for me too comprehend. "Sarah! Do you know where Sarah is?" almost yelling. "Yeah, she's right-," before I could finish my sentence Sarah walked through the kitchen and into the front room. I worried for a second, had we done something wrong? ...read more.


Sarah glanced into Willy's eyes and her cheeks became a stream of salty water. Willy was probably handling the whole ordeal better than Sarah. As they lifted Willy into the ambulance, Sarah and I ventured back to my car. We drove to the emergency room and called Willy's mom and brother. I could tell Sarah felt hopeless and alone without her parents there to take care of the situation and comfort her. I was there, I held her hand, and told her it would be all right, but I knew I couldn't compare to her mom. We walked into Willy's room to find him recovering faster than the previous seizure. He regained consciousness and became aware of his surroundings. Sarah later told me the man that came to the door was, a family friend who lived by where Willy had fell. After Willy's mom arrived at the hospital, we went back to Sarah's house. Her parents arrived home shortly and we explained the whole story. We were there for him when no one else was. We realized that it may not have been a fun experience, but it was definitely one to remember and to help us with future decisions and encounters. ...read more.
