I awake in my bed,it's 6 A.M. The first day of summer. Now,you're probably wondering,why would I wake up at 6 A.M. during summer? Because
I'm not like other kids. I like to be different...it's a great feeling. I rubbed my eyes and hopped out of bed. Let me introduce myself. My name is
Karia. I'm 15 years old. I don't quite remember my past...it's...it's all a blur. I don't like to even think about it,I would love to know about it. But what if
it was bad? I hate the fact of not knowing. Something doesn't seem right. Every day,and every night,I wonder about it. I walked to my drawers,
grabbed my clothes,and got dressed. I sighed as I walked into the bathroom. Everything was silent. I had to be very quiet not to wake my parents up.
As I turned on the water,the trickling startled me. I stared at myself in the mirror,seeing a younger girl. It looked like...me? Similar to me..what is
happening? My mother walked in,and I screamed. "Calm down Karia!" She said rubbing her temples. "It's only me." My heart was pounding. I
pointed at the mirror. "I-I saw a young girl...it looked like me." Then,that face my mother always gives. The worried look. "Another one of these silly
illusions? It's okay honey." I put the toothpaste on my toothbrush and started brushing. The image of the young girl still was in my mind. It gave me
the chills. I finished brushing my teeth,and I went into my Mom's room to find the charger for my phone. It's often in there. As I opened the drawer I
saw a file. I picked it up,and skimmed through it. I stopped at one paper. It read,
Name: Luna Agarine (Agh-Are-Eye-Ine)
Age Adopted: 1
On portrait,it showed a picture of me. It looked like the girl I saw in the mirror. I was adopted? I didn't know what to do. They changed my name...
What is going on here?
I stared at the file. I heard footsteps coming towards the door. I quickly put the files in and shut the drawer. I bent down pretended I was picking up something,and my "mother" walked in the room. "Looking for your phone charger again?" My mother asked. "Uhh..yes." I said shakily. My body was tingly. I quickly stood up and stared at my mother. She grabbed the charger and handed it to me. "Why are you so shaky?" She asked looking concerned. "N-no reason.." I mutter and took the charger. I quickly walked out of the room. This was a horrible way to start the summer. Finding out I was adopted. I didn't understand one thing about this. My mother walked into my room. She asked,"Did you go through that top drawer in my room?" She looked stern. She stared coldly at me. "No..." I said looking at the floor. My mother looked at me with tears in her eyes. "You know...don't you?"
