Unpacking, box by box Jessa remembers her past.
"Hey mom?" she asked "I'm going to go out".
"Thats great sweetie, go have fun." her mom answers in reply. So Jessa stepped out.
Slowly she walked into the garden. So many flowers. Tulips, roses, pansies and so much more surrounded her with vibrant colors. None of that seemed to catch her eye. She instead walked toward a single Sun flower. Just one was present. All alone, the same way she felt...alone.
The wind blew her dark brown, umber color hair into the sky. She felt a cold, shivering chill ride all the way down her spinal cord. From her neck to her tail bone this chill was creepy. She could feel the presence of another, but she was alone.
"Hello?" she cried out. "Is anyone here?". "Very funny Mai...now show yourself!" soon she stumbled upon the willow tree. The tree she sworn she would never see.
She looked up and right then and there the wind blew. She knew she felt the presence of someone there. She felt the presence of her father.
"Daddy...I wish you could be with us. Mom rely misses you. Even though you probably can't, can you send me a friend that I can talk to. A friend that is sweet, funny and just like me." she said as she smiled, but the smile did not last for ever. She felt his presence fade into the sun set. By that time she was called in for diner.
"Today was so much fun. I met this girl named Emily. Shes the same age as me and we will be going to the same school starting next week. I hope I will be in her class. We hung out and she showed me the shops in town and the ice cream parlor just two blocks down". Her sister said with a bright smile.
"That is wonderful Mai. You two will be forever friends." Replyed her mother
"I hope so!" said Mai
"So what did you do today Jess?" her mother asked as she was cutting the chicken.
Jessa just stood still and whispered "Nothing".
"Ok then." said her mom. and the rest of the night was silent. Jessa did have something to say, but she knew she could not tell. Suddenly the wind blew the door open.
"I didn't know it was going to be so windy here." said her sister.
Jessa did not care about the wind blowing her back door open...she only cared that the wind called her name. "Jessssaaaaa" the wind said. She felt her dads hand touch her shoulder and a kiss on her head. She could not she him, but she knew her dad was beside her.
