The blood was all over the rug, it was a rainy day that May evening. I could still here the loud shots as I layed on the ground, knocked unconscious. As I tried to open up my eyes, I tried to recall. what had led me to this moment. Immediately, I felt my thoughts getting away with me. “ My Keyla, Please baby girl, be okay !” Suddenly, I could not breath, “ Oh I thought to myself it finally has happened! As I started to try and open my eyes, I heard and officer’s voice calling me. At first all I heard was really muffled, for a second there I thought I was going deaf. Then my thoughts went back to earlier in the evening. “ Sadie, Please, calm down! Please put the gun down!” I thought to myself what was going on, am I dreaming, is this for real, what happened? I kept trying to scream, but I felt so weak. “ Help me!” Help me!” please!” “ Help me!” “ Sadie, please, please, stop this, “ I am begging you!”“Mam!, Mam!, called what sounded like a man’s husky voice. “Can you hear me, mam?”, the man, called out to her once again. “ Ah, yes”, I said trying to stay calm. “Good,” he said in a calming tone. As he continued speaking, I began to fall in and out of consciousness. I thought of happier times. I began to see my daughter’s precious face and how happy she made me. However, it was then that I began to gain this horrible feeling inside of me. “ Keyla! Darling, please come to mommy!” “ Sadie!” Sadie!” please!” come on now”! “ Give me the baby, now, or I swear!” All of a sudden, there was so much screaming, and I felt like I had fallen from the sky, and I felt my body quivering with so much pain. “ Oh Keyla, Keyla!” “my sweet girl, Mommy is not going to lose you, I love you!” All of a sudden, I felt very cold and scared. I still did not understand what was happening. I tried to gather some answers, however I was getting more and more tired and weak. Silence, was all I heard. I began to wonder if I was losing my mind.
