I woke up at night still totally sleepy from the great day before. I could have sworn i heard somebody crying, a sound that was not common in my family. We had hard times, big challenges to overcome, but we where happy.
I looked up and saw mom crying her heart out.
He is gone where the only words she said over and over again. Dad was gone.
I cant make it anymore, you have to take over the legacy Ciara, and with those words mom did run. She needed time for herself.
It was a horrible long night, a long and hard night without sleep for me, the words of mom had gotten me thinking. I was in lead for the legacy, i was in charge, i had to find mom, we had things to discuss.
It was maybe the saddest breakfast I have ever seen. Both mom and my brothers just starred at me when I told the my plans for our future. Was I a little bit early with this? No, it was time for change.
Mom took my news okay, and went to the corner of our lot where dad was now burried. She would sit there all day and just stare into the air.
That evening the first steps of our future where complete. For the first time there was a house build on our lot. In the front is the main house, and in the back a smaller house where we will store our collections.
Same night was Marcels Young Adult birthday. He hurried out of our new kitchen to change into something more outdoorsy and then hurried out the door.
Out behind our house Keisha was waiting, Keisha had been one of my friends since childhood, and now she was going to join our lifes for good, because Marcel asked her to marry him, and she joyfully agreed.
So the two of them jumped in to test out one of the new beds.
After that Keisha made sure to test out the new plumbing in one of the new bathrooms.
I myself tried to handle the loss by painting in our new living room. Life felt so empty without dad beign around.
Mom tried to write but only sad stories came into her mind, so she soon gave up and cried herself to sleep.
Neil tried to focus on his skills instead to keep his mind off, so he borrowed the big mirror in my new bedroom, oh my gosh i love what mirror.
We also had a new gym, it was a great way to get rid of some of the sad emotions, and also so that we could loose some weight after all those birthday cakes.
One night where mom could not sleep we had a visitor, a ghostly visitor to be exact. Dad had returned to watch over us, but not to join us. Because like he said the Pinstar foundation would not support legacys with ghost in them.
After that night mom was like changed again. Simply just back on track. And our family was facing happier times again.
But for how long can everything follow the plan in a legacy?
