Death By Ignorance Chap1Caleb and Mrs, Webster sat at their kitchen table, eating a plate of spaghetti silently. On any other night, they would be chatting the night away until Caleb's father got sick of it and left. "Mom," Caleb began. Was he really going to beg to go to a poor school instead of the expensive one they had planned on putting him in? "I want to go to school in Ragenville this year. I can always go to Culver next year."
"What?!" Dishes rattled as Mrs. Webster shot out of her seat. "But why?! Ragenville is just a haven for racist Hispanics! Why on Earth would you even consider such a place?!!"
As Caleb tried to think of a good comeback, he heard the girl's voice echo in his mind, "They're not all racist. There are a few white students. Say that. Maybe she'll get it." When he repeated the words, his mother turned a few shades paler. "B-B-But..." Before she could finish, she sighed and walked away. Now he felt really guilty. His mother was probably going upstairs to tell his father, where they cou
Death By Ignorance PrologueThe sound of rustling leaves startled me from my sleep. Since when were there leaves in my room? When I tried to sit up, my head began to swim, forcing me to lie back down. I felt pain everywhere, from head to toe. I ran my hands through my hair, only to come back with blood in my nails.
A cruel, maniacal laugh shocked me. I turned to see a shadowy figure tower over me. I couldn't see the face, but I could see blood on his hands. "Happy now, Daimen? You've finally been recognized for what you are, a stupid white loser." With that, he ran off, leaving me to wince in pain. I tried to get up and chase after him, but the loss of blood made me too weak. I watched as the man ran across a parking lot and disappeared around a corner with utter rage. How dare he leave me to die like this?! I wasn't going to let him win.
As soon as my sight cleared enough for me to take in my surroundings, I found that I was behind the Ragenville McDonald's. 'What a waste, dumping me so close to home.' I crawled
Love and HateThe rain falls silently onto the roof
Memories swirl around in my mind
All of the crude remarks you've said
The lies your lips have spilled
The hateful venom that you manage to produce on a daily basis
And the jokes that cut deeper than any knife
Drive me to the point of insanity
When you walk by, my blood boils
Images of a sword slicing through you entertain me for hours
But then the softer side of me steps in
During the darkness of the night
The sword is replaced with kind words
Instead of blood, there are roses
Screams are silenced by your lips
Before I know it, I wake up from the dream
To face another day of poison and hatred
I'm split into two, trying to decide
Should I just rip this person from my life
Or should I try to bring him closer to me?
Why must I love and hate this person?
Couldn't it be one or the other,
Not an ocean of conflicting emotions?
Keep in Touch!
