The Life of RøD story

Upon my arrival in Seattle it was raining. I had no clue what to expect, I knew it would be cold but I’ve never experienced that cold. We were staying with my cousin Brian his mother, & father. In a 2 bedroom apartment just outside Seattle to the south 15 minutes. Now that I think about it I don’t even remember thinking about coming back when I got there I thinks it’s because I knew what was going on, I knew my father was on the run from the law. Me and my brother where enrolled at hilltop elementary and my sister was enrolled in Tyee highschool with my cousin Brian. This was a very interesting time in my life I was yearning for normalcy and for a place in this world. I started to gain weight and my teeth which were never perfect began to get worse.My father was on the run from authorities in California so he had to keep a low profile. This was very hard for him to do seeing as he was using & selling drugs and not able to get a job because of his fugitive status. One morning he dropped us off at our school bus stop in his cousins van. He did not know that there was an A.P.B. on the vehicle because my cousin nick had been using the care for illegal activity. So as my bus traveled by my home I was witness to my father being arrested my brother lost control and tried to get of the bus I tried to stop him he began to hit me. The bus driver tried to break up the fight he began to hit him. This subsequently resulted in my brother not being able to ride the bus. My father was going to prison, that night I cried harder than I ever had in my life. I knew my family would never be the same.
