Lily Anna’s Troubles

I have no idea what part this is, so don’t ask me. This is an Easter special. It will probably consist of three parts before Easter. DSCN7655[1]        I sat on the bed, checking my email. Suddenly one popped up. I didn’t know who it was from, but in my life time, I learned to not trust anyone, and they way people have been mean to me and my sister, it could very well be true. Here is what it said.

I need you and your sister. I am your only relative, so I own you. You must come, or I will find you, and kill both you and your sister. Got it? 

I ‘ll admit it. I was scared. I knew that he would carry through with it, and although I am 11, and can care for myself, Ida is only 7. DSCN7656[1]        I slammed the computer shut. I didn’t want to deal with it. DSCN7657[1]     As I got ready for bed, Faith came to read me the Easter story. DSCN7658[1]       Suddenly I couldn’t take it. I propped myself up. “WHY DO YOU HAVE TO READ THIS! I KNOW HE WOULDN’T DO IT FOR ME!”

Faith was surprised. “Why of course he would.”

“Then why does he let bad things happen to us?”

Faith didn’t answer.
DSCN7659[1]        I turned over, tears slipping down my cheeks, and cried myself to sleep. Faith was quite confused, but she continued on like nothing had happened. DSCN7660[1]   The next morning I talked to Joy.

“Why would a God die for us, if he lets such bad things happen to us?”

“He wants it to make us stronger.”

“Won’t it just ruin us?”

“What are you even talking about Lily Anna?”

So I told her about the email. She didn’t believe me. She just thought I wanted attention.DSCN7661[1]   She put her hands up, confused. “I don’t know what’s wrong with you!”

All at once, I knew that no one would ever believe me. I still had to save Ida. I decided that I needed to go save her. DSCN7662[1]     And Joy was left alone. DSCN7663[1]     After breakfast I started on my journey. I knew it was the right choice, and I didn’t care if I died. Anyway I was all alone in the world. No one would believe me, and for the time, I stopped believing. How could I? No God would die for some one that he is doing such mean things to. DSCN7664[1]        Several hours later I arrived at the house. I was going to save Ida, whether anyone liked it or not.
