:::flashback:::"who it is" I asked standing on my tippy toes to look into the peephole."police ma'am" a husky voice said.I opened the door to see a man standing there in uniform with a woman dressed in a suit."what is the problem officer"i asked a bit nervous."are you Synonymy Simmons"he asked."yes sir why"i questioned getting a bit anxious."i'm sorry to tell you but both your parents have been killed"he said.At that moment i felt my heart skip a beat and my body go numb."what..wait...how" I asked with tears forming in my eyes."it appears that they've been shot"he said.Once those words left his mouth i broke down crying."I know this isn't the best time but i'm going to need you to get you and your brother's things and come with me"the lady standing with him now said."where are we going"I asked in between sobs."Well records show that since you are only 17 and Gabriel is 8 the only family member near by is your grandmother so we'll be take you there"she said.I nodded and made my way upstairs to pack.I slowly walked down the hall looking at all our family pictures we had hanging up as tears rolled down my cheeks.I reached my brother's room to find him playing his game."Gab....i need you to pack your things up we're going on a little trip"i said walking into his room.He paused his game and looked up at me "to where....wheres mommy and daddy"he asked."we're going to grandma's for a while...mommy and daddy had a accident"i said trying to fight back tears."are they okay"he asked standing up.I shook my head no and said "no gab they're not okay" breaking down crying again."their dead aren't they"he asked now with tears in his eyes.I shook my head yes as he fell into my arms sobbing."we'll be okay....we'll be okay" i said as i stroked his head
I sat in cab with tears rolling down my cheeks as i remembered the day my life came to an end.Gabriel grasped my hand and said "we'll be okay"with a half smile.soon the cab pulled up to the house and we got out.II stood at the door for a moment hesitant wanting to take gab and run.Before i could do anything she opened the door."come in" she said stepping aside.Me and Gabriel looked at each other and came inside.It smelled like ginger and mothballs."you can rest you things right there I've cooked dinner"she said walking past us.Gabriel shrugged dropped his bags and followed behind her. I followed after walking slowly looking at the pictures that hung on the walls.I reached the kitchen to find it was a bit smaller then the one we had back home."have a seat"she told us both.we sat down looking at each other feeling a bit weird.She placed a bowl of rice on the table and pot full of some sloppy gravy type covered meat."what is that"Gabriel asked turning up his nose."food"she said piling it and the rice onto our plates."hurry up and eat i'll take you two into town so you can get acquainted with the place and the people"she said."um...what do we call you"Gabriel asked picking the meat up with his fork and plopping it back down."Meredith or Grandma which ever you're more comfortable with now hurry up"she said walking out the kitchen leaving us to eat this "food".It was about 5 o' clock when we rolled into town in her green pickup.She stopped at a diner and instructed us to follow her inside."hey ruby"she said walking up to the counter."hey mere"a lady said smiling widely "and whose are these two lovely things"she said looking directly at us."these are my grand kids Gabriel and Synonymy" she said looking back at us."well hello you can call me aunt ruby all the kids here do"she said.We smiled and nodded."would you guys like a slice of pie...its on the house"she asked."sure"i said sitting down as Gabriel followed my lead.As she disappear into the back i looked around at the people inside there were pretty much a bunch of adults sitting around either reading the paper or drinking coffee watching the old TV they hanging hanging up. In the corner i spotted a group of 5 boys and 4 girls that looked to be around my age.One of them seemed to sniff the air and look directly at me after.His eyes glistened and flashed the color green as soon as we made eye contact spooking me enough to turn around.As i did so i heard snickering as if his friends were in on whatever the joke seemed to be.
Later that night i stayed up not really being able to sleep the sheets seemed to stiff and the room was a bit hot.I opened the window to let in some breeze inside.As i did so i looked at the moon it seemed to shine brighter then I've ever seen before.Right when i was about to get back in the bed there was rustling in the bushes causing me to peep my head out and look.There was more rustling as if something was stuck.I looked around the room for something to throw when it stepped out into the moon light.It looked right up at me and let out a low growl it almost sounded like a human moaning.I stood frozen staring back it not really believing what i was seeing as soon as i blinked it was gone leaving me feeling a bit confused and a tad delighted.
