Just A Wish

Hailey Resendez, Writer

Whenever you blowout a birthday candle everyone always asked “What did you wish for?” or “What is your wish?” Some tell others don’t. For most it’s more toys, games, money, fame, a relative, a lover. For me it was to see my sister. You might be wondering why I would ask such a thing. I bet you’re all thinking “You can just go see her or visit her.” That’s the thing… I can’t see her… She’s dead… Don’t be giving me those pity looks I don’t need that! I-I just need her… Sixteen years without your twin can affect you more than you realize… We were just newborns… I remember it clear as day… Sometimes I wish I didn’t remember it so clearly… You looked the healthiest between the two of us yet you were the most ill. The one who wasn’t going to make it… You were in too much pain… You wouldn’t have made it through life… You would be stuck forever in pain… I’m glad you didn’t have to go through that… I just wished you were here in a better condition than you were when we were babies… That’s what it ever is. A wish, a stupid wish to some dream that’ll never happen! If  you were to come back you would be in pain… I wouldn’t want that for you Kailey. You know this, yet I feel so selfish for this one wish. This one wish that I keep making yet I know that it’ll just hurt you… I guess I can’t help it… I’m sorry Kailey… That I keep making this wish… After all it’s…

Just a Wish…
