my safe haven
by Veronica Martin
Today my mother is planning my ‘surprise’ party, that Jazamine ‘accidently’ told me about. Rementon is the only one that has told me happy birthday today. When Jacilyne heard him tell me happy birthday she shouted it, but she really forgot. Oh well she’s only 13. I’m 16. Jazamine is 17. Rementon is 18. Mom is 35, Dad is 36.
