By Isabella, Age 10
“The cop got me,” My little brother Cruz said as we played a prison escape game on our tablets.
“Go to the cells.” I replied, we were sitting on the couch in the living room when my parents walked in holding hands with a little card.
“Isabella..Cruz?” My mom asks. We put down our tablets.
“What’s up?” I ask.
My dad hands me the card and I scoot next to Cruz so he can see, I read off “We love you two very much, our number one girl, and our number one boy. We didn’t expect this but get ready for a new family member, and remember we will always love you – Mom and dad” We stare at the card for a while, It has a stork carrying a blanket, Then we stare at each other.
I get a big grin and run over to my parents, and hug them. My little brother asks “wait, are we getting a bird?”
“No silly” my mom says, “Mommy is pregnant!” I yell.
My brother stares and then starts screaming into a pillow. However, the thing is, he’s crying, He was always the baby of the family. 9 months later my baby brother Cash was born. But I began to get worried because I remember seeing the news, “2 deaths due to new virus on Princess Diamond Cruise.” We were safe, for now. During Thanksgiving my aunt and uncle were in quarantine, so we had it at our house by ourselves. Plot twist. We had covid too, and my birthday was in a week or two, so you know what we did? We stayed home for my birthday, literally. It was nice though, I got my first phone! Covid started when I was maybe 9, and now I’m 11, Weird!
