New Excerpt

The blood was all over the rug, it was a rainy day that May evening.  I could still here the loud 
shots as I layed on the ground, knocked unconscious.   As I tried to open up my eyes, I tried to 
recall.  what had led me to this moment. 
Immediately, I felt my thoughts getting away with me. 
 “ My Keyla, Please baby girl, be okay” !    
Suddenly, I could not breath, “ Oh I thought to myself it finally has happened!   As I opened my eyes
   I began to  to not only see but hear  an officer’s voice calling me. 
At first all I heard was really muffled, for a second there I thought I was going deaf. 
Then my thoughts all began to drift away. 
“ Sadie, Please, calm down! Please put the gun down”!
   I thought to myself what was going on, am I dreaming, is this for real, what happened?   I kept 
trying to scream, but I felt so weak.  
“ Help me! Help me! please “ Help me”!
 “ Sadie, please, please, stop this, “ I am begging you”!
Mam!, Mam!,  called a man’s voice. 
“ Can you hear me, mam, the man, called out to her once again. 
“ Ah, yes I said trying to stay calm.   
“Good, he said in a calming tone. 
  As he continued speaking, I was in and out of consciousness.    
  I thought of happier times.   I began to see my daughter’s precious face and how happy she 
made me.   However, it was then that I began to gain this horrible feeling inside of me. 

“ Keyla! Darling, please come to mommy”!
“ Sadie!  Sadie! please! come on now”! 
 “ Give me the baby, now, or I swear”... 
All of a sudden,  there was so much screaming, and I felt like I had fallen from  the sky, 
and I felt my body quivering with so much pain. 
“ Oh Keyla, Keyla!  my sweet girl, Mommy is not going to lose you, I love 
    All of a sudden, I felt very cold and scared.    I still did not understand what was happening. 
    I tried to gather some answers, however I was getting more and more tired and weak.
