Like any sister would, I snooped through her closet and stole her clothes. I would carefully watch her and her friends spend hours preparing for school dances and hear them critique her while she practiced her dance routines, since she was a part of the school’s dance squad. I spent many nights crawling into her bed when I had a bad dream, and I can feel that sense of security that comes from being protected by my older sister. Nothing comforted me quite like that did. My final stop on my memory tour is down the hall in my parents’ bedroom.

This week I read the poem, “Apron Strings” by Beth Gylys, the author of the poetry collection “Close to the Shore”, published by Michigan State University Press. From what I gathered about this poem, it is about a businesswoman that lives life in the fast lane in order to provide a decent life for her young children, but due to her rat race lifestyle that she is caught up in, she is unable to spend quality time with her family, and as a result her child is affected by this. This poem starts off with clear intentions. The lines about burnt dinner, multiple watches that were wound too tight, and forgotten lists left on countertops, all are vivid images that establish a scene of a frantic lifestyle of a busy woman that doesn’t have
I Hate You, Means I Love You Ch.11 *Nico´s P.O.V. * “Thalia, are you up?” I said while knocking on the door of her hotel room. A couple of minutes went by, before I heard a groan and Thalia´s heavy steps. Many would think that since she was a hunter her steps should be lighter and hard to notice, and they are. Her steps are feather-like 90 percent of the time, the thing is that she hates mornings so she express her feelings by dragging her feet and making as much noise as possible.
You’d been in New York for a week or so, crying and getting drunk most nights.

Her mother called that afternoon and told her that Sea Pines says she is refusing treatment and they will remove her. This gave Callie a bit more confidence than usual to quit what she was doing and speak up. In therapy she spoke out on how she thought it was her fault her brother suffered from asthma and that her mother made her feel that way. She still felt as though she needed more answers to her own situation. She left and ran away from the rehab center calling her dad from a payphone and he eventually met up with her at a donut shop.
On 11-14-2015 at about 2106 hours I was dispatched to a domestic violence report at the Emerald Point Condos at 31900 104th AVE SE; H102, Auburn/King/Wa. Enroute dispatch advised the reporting party/victim, Lizbeth Nunez Santana was calling to report that she was assaulted by her husband.

Throughout my conversation with Lizbeth it was clear that she was very upset, she had to stop speaking several times as she was crying and upset with the situation.
Once we left the dollar store we went back to the laundromat when my mother and I were approached once again and this time the man I the patriots jersey actually finished what he said.
