I see you came here to know more about me. Well, have a seat and we can talk now. My name is Liu Andrew Woods, I am 16 years old.
When I was younger, me and my younger brother Jeffrey Alan Woods, were very close. Until one day, our dad got a promotion at work so we had to move to a new neighborhood that changed our lives. Jeffrey became more quiet and more distance yet I always stayed by his side even though our parents sometimes argue.
But on the first day of school, we were heading to the bus stop waiting these three kids; Randy, Keith and Troy came up to us saying that new people have to pay a toll to ride the bus.
So they stole my wallet out of my pocket.
Then I saw Jeff beating them up. My eyes were widen. After I grabbed my wallet, we ran back to our house hearing the police coming as soon as we got to the house.
After the police got to the house, I didn’t want my younger brother to go Juvie so I told the police that “it was me” and got into the car even though I was hearing Jeffrey wanting me to tell the police that it was him. I just wanted to protect him cause that’s what older brothers do anyway.
After I was released from Juvie, I went to the hospital with my parents to see Jeffrey again. When I saw that his face and hair had changed, my eyes widen. After we got home he started to act different he wasn’t normal anymore. There was something in his eyes I couldn’t tell.
So that night I sleeping yet when I woke up. He was on top of me. The eyelids had been burned off his eyes and he had craved a smile into his cheeks. That’s all I saw, feeling the knife stabbing me. My eyes closed and I stopped breathing, thinking that I was gonna die, yet I didn’t.
I woke up again noticing that I’m in a hospital bed recovering. So now, I wander the streets searching for him even though I sometimes wear a mask to hide the scars on my face and a scarf to cover the scar that wraps around my neck. Now you know my story of what happened to me and my brother. Now if you excuse me I must go and continue my search.
