Heather Brandon had everything a girl could ever want. She was the head cheerleader and very popular. Also, she had parents that adored her. She was in her senior year of high school, and the school year was just beginning. Football season was starting soon, and Heather loved cheering for the Manhattan Tigers.
Eyes turned as Heather came driving up in her 2013 red SS Camaro with polished rims, ground effects and customized T tops. Mike Brandon spared no expense when it came to the luxuries he provided for his only daughter. She was self centered and the envy of everyone at her school. She was beautiful and fit. She had long brown hair, and she had curves in all the right places. When she spoke, everyone turned to hear what she had to say. That’s how nice it was to be Heather; a highly regarded girl which had the attention of all of her peers.
Then came the day when Heather was summoned to the principal’s office. She was sitting in class surrounded by several of her friends when the puzzling call came. Heather couldn’t imagine getting in trouble because she was loved by all her teachers. She had never been sent to the principal’s office before, and she was a little worried about what was going on. As she walked to the front office several thoughts came to her about why she was being called to the office. When she opened up the office door, she saw two police officers standing in the doorway.
“Mr. Pace, is anything wrong?” she inquired as she stuck her head in the doorway.
“Sit down Miss Brandon, I have something to tell you,” Mr. Pace replied. Heather walked between two tall cops that had their arms crossed, and they had sunglasses on their faces.
Heather sat down and asked, “Sir I haven’t been speeding or anything have I?”
“No, Miss Brandon, this is a little more troubling than that. I don’t know how to tell you this; Today your mother and father were on their way to your dad’s office when they were hit by a drunk driver,” Mr. Pace replied.
Heather was horrified by the news that she heard. She stood in silence unable to speak.
Mr. Pace struggled to finish telling Heather the news. “Miss Brandon, they didn’t make it. I’m so sorry,” he said. Heather couldn’t believe her ears. She was stunned and shocked that her beloved mother and father could have died. Tears flowed down her face, and she sobbed uncontrollably while Mr. Pace tried to comfort her. “Heather, these two police officers need to take you to identify your parents bodies.” Heather looked up at Mr. Pace with horror in her eyes. She couldn’t believe what she heard. She didn’t know if she would be able to do this horrible task. The thought of looking at her parents’ dead bodies made her cry more.
