“I am so sleepy I wish I had a bed to lie on,” cried Amelie!
Amelie’s mom did not understand why her daughter wanted a bed to go to sleep, ever since she was born only place she knew was the floor and a torn sheet where her mother always laid her, then she noticed a piece of paper with the picture of a bed, where did Amelie find this she wondered?
When she asked her daughter why she talked about lying on a bed, her daughter told her she has a friend, her name is Julie and that Julie gave her the picture of a bed.
Next morning Amelie brought her friend Julie to their little hut, Julie loved it, she thought it was the most beautiful home she saw, “this place is so pretty,” she said.
“It’s not as pretty as your home, said Amelie, you get to sleep on a bed at bedtime!
The lights were on, I came in I called out ‘anyone here’? Silence. I moved around ,wondered where my nephew was.As far as I know,he is at work.Why didn’t he turn off the lights. Who will answer my questions?There was deathly silence.
I went from room to room to find out,if someone was hiding.I was tired and scared. I felt at this moment what if the intruder attacks me from the back. I then decided to go to his bedroom. The closet was open.The bed was not made. My nephew was very particular about his room,he always made sure he left it in a squeaky clean condition. I kept thinking, ‘What is wrong’?
Then I saw what was beyond my imagination. My nephew was lying on the floor between the bed and the closet, he had no pulse,I tried to shake him but there was no movement, in ,I reached the phone, called my niece,she came over, she called 911 immediately.They came over,examined him and pronounced him “Dead”.
His parents were in shock.He never complained of any sickness. He was only thirty how could this happen to such a young man. The questions still are running through the head of the parents,sadly there are no answers!
