Youthgaze’s Tragedy: A Short Story Essay

Youthgazes Tragedy
It was early in the morning, the house was completely silent, and Judson was the only one awake. Judson swept quietly through the house, he peeked through an open door to his parents room and it was empty. His parents must have went some where without telling him, again. They left Judson home alone often, well, actually he wasnt fully alone… Judson opens a door across the hall and peeks in. There, in a dark room laid a little girl covered up to the chin in blankets. That was Judsons little sister Holly, he smiled slightly at how cute and peaceful she looked asleep, He slowly shut the door behind him, letting her sleep for as long as she wanted.

As soon as he arrived he sat down, a million thoughts going through his head. What kind of big brother was he? He didnt even know about his sister dying. Now he has no family at all, no one who cares about him, he doesnt even have any friends. No one cares… The one person who he loved and who loved him back died two months ago, and he didnt even know. He didnt have any future plans either, whats the point now? He had no one to live for or with. Judson thought about all these things and more, wallowing in despair.
