Lily Anna’s Troubles, Easter Version Finale

DSCN7802[1]         “I’m going to get some help. I won’t be gone long.” DSCN7804[1]         Faith was checking email. Suddenly the email to Lily Anna came up.

“Lily Anna must have run away! Why didn’t she come to us for help? We could have helped her! Running away won’t solve anything. It only made us lose her! She only cares about herself.” DSCN7805[1]        “Faith?” Joy asked.

“Yes, Joy?”

“Lily Anna showed me the email, and I just thought she was making things up. That’s why she ran away.” DSCN7807[1]     At that moment Lily Anna came rushing in.

“Lily Anna you are in so much trouble!”

“You have to help me!”

“You will be in much more trouble if you send me on wild goose chases.”

Lily Anna didn’t hesitate a moment. “Ida is worth more then any consequence.”

Then Lily Anna told Faith where Ida was, and to go get her, and bring her in. That was when Faith realized that Lily Anna wasn’t thinking only of herself. DSCN7808[1]       Ida lay on the ground, shivering. DSCN7809[1]       Faith picked her up to take her inside. Then she realized how sick Ida was, and how lucky Ida was to have Lily Anna. DSCN7810[1]     She set her on the bed, and sent Lily Anna off to find an Easter outfit. DSCN7811[1]        There Lily Anna was. Home, safe, and pretty. It was a dream come true. Ida and Lily Anna were in a safe home together once again.

Lily Anna’s Troubles Easter Special

DSCN7706[1]         I peeked around the corner. DSCN7708[1]      Grandma and Grandpa were arguing over Ida, who was sleeping.

“This little girl is so sick we used up all our money caring for her, and now we don’t have a house! We need to get rid of her.”

“But if Lily Anna comes, like we told her to, Ida must be there.”

“Doesn’t matter if Ida is there or not. We will force her to be a maid and give all of her money to us.”

So that was who sent the message. I realized that it would be a wonderful thing that I am here, if they ‘got rid’ of Ida. She was so sick that she would die if not cared for. DSCN7709[1]   Grandma took Ida and dropped her in the street. DSCN7710[1]   Then she turned and walked away. DSCN7711[1]     “Now are you happy!” DSCN7712[1]        I ran to get Ida. I couldn’t leave her to die! DSCN7713[1]        I picked the sleeping girl up, and went to find a place to sleep. DSCN7717[1]    We found a place to spread out the blanket, and fall fast asleep. DSCN7715[1]      In the morning we sat and talked for awhile before setting off. She told me that she had been a maid, been exposed to toxic stuff, and gotten sick. That was when our grandparents sent the email. They wanted me to be the maid. I told her that I was going to come and get her so she wouldn’t have to be with whoever it was. DSCN7716[1]    After awhile we wet out again. The pace was slow going, and we stopped to rest several times.  After half an hour, Ida couldn’t walk anymore, and I had to carry her. DSCN7718[1]         She got a piggyback ride, and we walked for a few hours. Just when I knew where I was… DSCN7719[1]         I lost my footing. DSCN7720[1]       And we fell. No doubt about it, we had to stop and rest.                                Lexie

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.
