It was a normal night, or at least I thought it was. It was around ten o’clock when I heard the gunshots. They were so loud! I felt like the gunshots were fired in my house because they sounded so close. I never thought something would happen like this on my porch! This was supposed to be a normal night, but turned into something I couldn’t even imagine.
One night my mom had brought some man to our house but she didn’t actually bring him in the house, they both just sat on the porch. I was feeling nosey, so I was listening and watching their conversation. Even though my mom felt like she had to protect me because she was the mother and I was the child, I felt like I had to protect her too. Then, while I was looking out the window, a man walked up to my porch like he was the police or something. It looked like he was both talking to my mom or her friend because his mouth was moving and I was hearing noises. Next thing I knew he pulled out a gun! In the next minute, my mom rushed in and slammed me to the floor. Then, I heard gunshots, and they were loud. My mom and I thought her friend was dead, but when the gunshots stopped, her friend came through the door. At first my mom and me thought it was the man who fired the shots. Her friend had blood everywhere on him, on our floor, and our couch. As my mom called the ambulance, she told me to get him some water, but I couldn’t because I was shaking so bad. I was in shock. When the ambulance came, they took him to the hospital. That night I was so glad my little sister and big sister were asleep, because I wouldn’t have them go through what I what I did.
