    just gotta have faith.

    just gotta have faith.


    “So, what do you want to be when you grow up?”

    His chuckle filled the air. “Grow up? I already grew.”

    I smiled and shook my head in the broad sunlight.

    “Whatever happened to you being like Peter Pan?” I asked, a smirk on my face.

    He looked down at me his eyes reading nothing but pure happiness.

    “Well, sorry to break it to ya, Kid, but reality set in.”

    Reality? What is that exactly? I thought as I looked down at the roses blooming below us.

    A moment of peaceful silence overcame us and then, walking down the sidewalk was a group of men. The group consisted of three and they were staring straight at me.

    I looked up at him but it seemed as if, he didn’t notice them.

    “Who’s the girl right there?”

    One of them asked.

    “Who?” he asked and slowly grabbed my hand and squeezed it tightly.

    The group walked closer.

    “I said, ‘whose that girl?’”

    He shook his head and said, “I’m afraid I don’t know whom you’re talking about.”

    Then, in one quick move the man raised a gun and pointed it at my head. The silver pistol felt cold against my skin.

    He saw me and I read his eyes once again. They no longer read happiness they read fear.

    “Don’t hurt her,” he whispered putting his hands up.

    The men started dragging me.

    “I said, don’t hurt her!” he belted and he lunged at the guy.

    Then it happened…
    That gunshot appeared and my life flashed before my eyes. I saw my own blood brother die before my eyes. Only at ten years old. The scene of screaming and blood filled my mind and I was frozen.

    I couldn’t hear anything. I couldn’t even see anything. I was hypnotized by my dead brother lying before me.

    He was all I had.

    He was gone.

    chapter one.

    Eight years later...

    She stood there. Tears pouring down her face as she played the piano, the sound of the keys flooding her ears.
    Reminding her of bloody memories.

    Nothing could stop her then. She was stuck in the moment. Traveling through time. Imagining that one time where everything was right.

    But then... everything stopped once he called her name.

    "Belle, are you there?"

    She was shocked to hear his voice again, after all these years.

    "Belle?" "Belle!"

    She was then knocked into reality once she opened her eyes realizing that he wasn't actually calling her. It was her mother, Whitney.

    She let-out an irritated sigh and ran her hands through her dark brown curly hair, that were said to be similar to her brother's.

    "What?" she snapped.

    A pained expression appeared on Whitney's aging face. "Sweetheart, please. I was just trying to ask you about school."

    "What about it?" she asked flatly and started playing the piano piece for Christina Aguilera's hit, Beautiful.

    She had her eyes closed, humming to herself the lyrics and she ignored her mother. Within a couple of minutes, her mother grabbed her hands and slammed them on her lap causing Belle nothing but stinging pain on her thighs but she was used to it. She finally looked up at her mother and pushed her away.

    "Don't touch me!" she yelled and pushed away from her piano and stood up and began walking towards the kitchen. Her mother followed close behind.

    "I'm sorry, dear, but I need to know if you're still going to Harvard next semester."

    She stopped suddenly as she reached inside the fridge for a bottle of beer, “Why would you care?"

    Her mother stopped and sighed. "I know you still miss-"

    "Don't mention him. Just don't. You know better, Mom."

    Whitney shook her head sadly and raised her hands, a familiar sign of defeat. Whitney then turned around and walked into the laundry room dismissing the conversation.

    Feeling relieved, Belle, took a grateful sip of her beer and walked out to the balcony of her room and looked down at the city. Known to be New York City.
    The city that never sleeps,
    The city full of dreams,
    The city where so many things happen,
    The city where her brother was killed...
