Excerpt from Chapter 6

Our Lives by Sharyan Alleyne

Excerpt from Chapter 6:

While Stephen and Megan were on their way home, they
both were in shock about the condition that Tom was
in. They felt so much pain for his parents and sisters, and they
wondered how they would ever get through this horrific tragedy
that had stricken their lives.

Stephen said to Megan, “I am so sorry that I never got a
chance to meet Tom’s parents before. How could we have let that
pass us by? We were always hanging out with him, and not once
did we ever think to say to him, ‘Tom, we want to meet your family,’
and now . . . this is how we have to meet them.”

Megan held on to Stephen’s hands and said, “Please don’t
blame yourself. It’s not your fault that any of this happened. And
knowing Tom, he would want us to be strong in a situation like
this.”
