Chapter One : Hidden Secrets
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 tryand open my eyes, I heard the 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 a man’s voice. “ Can you hear me ?” the man, called out to her once again.“ Ah, yes” I finally said trying to stay calm.“Good”, he said. As he continued speaking, I was 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 feelinginside 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!” Then all of a sudden, it all came to a stand still. I did not understand what was happening. I took and deep breath and then I tried to gather some answers, however I was getting moreand more tired and weak until I saw myself drifting away. “ Oh come one Sadie!, stop pretending you do not know what happened!””Huh! , “ Who said that?”
