Sensing the likelihood of making a pile of cash, Tiffany dramatically changed her perspective by replying rapidly, “If that’s what you and the boys’ want…” She saw their eyes light up with the prospect of gaining money for their collective suffering, and accordingly she couldn’t refute their claims by saying ‘no’.

She always thought “What if I had said something, anything, What if I had the chance to change his outcome but I didn’t, I did nothing I just let it happen.” Now she is afraid of losing her grandmother that would be the end of the 4th of July parties, the christmas get-togethers, the Easter parties, and swimming in her lake when it's burning hot in the summer.

Amser touched his cheek and then smiled. “Yeah, I guess I should,” he said backing up. He waited until she disappeared safely in the house and then started for home oblivious to a nightbird blinking out of existence. He didn’t miss the drone, its red light blinking a silent demand for attention when he walked into his flat ten minutes later. He knew they were angry; he’d sent his last report days ago. His good mood landed in the same heap as his overcoat.
Michelle, an eleven year old girl, enjoys the typical activities a girl her age would like to do. That is why I thought going to the mall with Michelle, her mother and her little brother would be a good idea. During our day at the mall and our talk after lunch, I was able to get an insight into her psychological development as a pre-teen. Not only was Michelle dealing with the transformation from childhood to teenage hood, but was also struggling with understanding her medical setbacks as a child. At age 3 Michelle’s parents found out that she was suffering from leukemia. This changed majority of Michelle’s childhood. By age 5 Michelle was free of her cancer and able to continue most her life normally. In reality, Michelle will never be able to live her life normally because she will always live the fact that she had an illness. Because Michelle had leukemia as a child, it seemed that her awareness of herself wasn’t the same as other girls her age.

You’ll cry, right there in the car, with Henri’s friend Ava in the back seat. Mom will cry a little too. Mom will cry a lot in the next year, she’s just as strong as Henri is. You get home and Henri is in the front lawn. He got to go to Burger King for lunch, in between his tests, and he got a green dinosaur toy. He’s just sitting there, playing. Happy. Looking back on that, I know now how miraculous that is. How incredible bravery is amplified by youthful innocence. You won’t understand that, and that’s ok. There are a lot of
