Tara missed her father greatly and she wished he had taken her with him as anywhere would be a happier place than where she was now. All that Tara and her mother had left were a house frozen in time

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Tara lay in bed looking up at the stars wishing she could go out to play in the darkness. In the next room she could hear her mothers long awaited snoring before she dared sit up in bed. Tara's bedroom was cold, dark and lonely and not to her liking. She didn't feel it belonged to her and the d�cor and surroundings were not of her choosing but her mothers. Tara's mother fell asleep easily these evenings since she started drinking more wine to fill in the void of Tara's father leaving. Tara missed her father greatly and she wished he had taken her with him as anywhere would be a happier place than where she was now. All that Tara and her mother had left were a house frozen in time and filled with memories. Even Tara's clothes were unsuitable large and too grown up for a thin nine year old. These clothes and shoes had been handed down and they were no longer in fashion but were the centre of ridicule and caused embarrassment for Tara's at school. The darkness of the room did not scare Tara as much as the thought of her mother awakening to find her bed empty. ...read more.

The voice belonged a young girl of the same age who was sitting on the floor. Her name was Daphne and she wore similar clothing to Tara much to Tara's dislike. Daphne's pale skin glowed in contrast against her long curly hair. Her eyes darted around the room at the shadows on the walls and then they fixed on Tara. "So you remembered about me then did you, Tara?" hissed Daphne. Tara hesitated to answer as she feared Daphne's anger at the wrong answer. "Of course I did Daphne you are my big sister after all", Tara said. "So why are you wearing my clothes Tara?" said Daphne looking Tara up and down. "It's not my fault Daphne, mummy makes me wear them to remind her of you", Tara mumbled. "Mummy doesn't even notice me anymore Tara, I'm thinking of going to find Daddy" said Daphne. "Can I come with you too Daphne, I miss daddy so and I don't think mummy would even care" begged Tara. Silence fell on the two little girls and Daphne smiled. "Alright Tara pack some things and I will see to it that you see daddy soon" said Daphne. Tara was so happy to not feel lonely anymore that she left the candle burning as she went down the ladder. ...read more.

Conclusion

Tara looked in disbelief as Daphne stood up and walked away. Running after her Tara shouted "don't leave me again Daphne you said you'd take me to see daddy". Daphne stopped and turned for a minute and replied "Dear sister can't you see that mummy needs me now and daddy will have to return for you now that she has gone". Gasps and shrieks were heard from the neighbours who ran towards Tara's mother's body at the foot of the tree. Tara's neighbour Mrs Black put her arm around Tara and took her away from the crowd of onlookers. Looking up at her kindly old face Tara asked Mrs Black "will my daddy come home now". The old lady smiled and promised she would bring him home to take Tara with him this time. When Tara looked around the garden for Daphne in the confusion, she could only see her and what seemed like her mother holding hands walking away in the distance together. Her mother was no longer staggering or shouting or angry instead she was so happy to be reunited with Daphne. Tara smiled as she knew now that she would ever be alone again and that she would not only have her daddy back but that her sister and mother would never be lonely again either. ?? ?? ?? ??
