Narrative “Here Maya, as long as you wear this I’ll always be with you,” my dad said as he clipped a small bow into my hair. “I can’t believe tomorrow will be your first birthday, and I have to miss it. I love you more than the world baby girl.” He kissed my forehead as he lowered me into the crib. “Daddy don’t go, please!” I begged him, “I’m going to miss you so much.” “Munchkin I have to go, I’ll only be gone 2 days and it’ll fly by so fast that when I come home you’ll think I never left.”He hugged my older brother and sister, and then he was gone. As long as I can remember my dad had taken business trips once a month. Even after ten years it never got any easier seeing him go. He always told me he’d be before I knew it, but somehow that was never true. Whether he was gone 2 days, or 2 weeks it always felt like 2 centuries instead. When he left I built a wall up around me the second he walked out the door. I would sit in my room and only come out for meals, not talking to anybody. “Maya, dad died in a plane crash last night,” I hoped I would never hear those words, but when they left Sophia’s mouth I clasped on the floor. I went into shock, I didn’t cry, I didn’t speak, I just sat there on the floor for a minute. Then I ran. I bolted out the front door, running around the block. I ran past the school and through the park with Sophia chasing after me. When I finally got back to the house I ran to my room and slammed the door in her face. “Maya let me in!” Sophia screamed.
