Excerpt

He chuckles while reaching into a box that he has hooked under his arm and holds up a book. “Found this at Mom’s.”

My eyes narrow in on the book that I’ve seen before. I walk down the steps to examine the book closer. It’s black made of pleather-like material with white lettering that’s been so rubbed off you can’t make out what it says anymore, the corners are worn and the cover is cracked along the spine. Whispering, I just stare, “Mom’s diary.”

“Yup.” Hunter looks away before meeting my eyes again. “There is a whole box of them. Think we should read them?”

I take the book out of my brother’s hands, flip the cover open, and rub my pointer finger over my mom’s name. Emotions wanting to break free yet my curiosity overwhelms me. Walking into the living room, I set the worn diary down on the coffee table that’s littered with everything and anything that a coffee table can hold. I take a seat on the sofa, staring at it while imagining my mom calling my name.  Chills break out across my skin. “I don’t know.” I answer honestly. “Do you think we should?”

“I don’t know. That’s why I came here.” Hunter places the box of books he was holding on the table next to the diary then sits down next to me. “Elle said that we should if and when we’re ready. She knew that Mom was writing in it, she had to help her toward the end when it became difficult for her to write it herself.” He shrugs. “Mom’s life story is on those pages, in every one of those books just waiting to be told.”

I nod, keeping my eyes trained on the diary. My heart is hammering against my chest and I’m sure if Hunter listens close enough he’d hear it. I miss Mom terribly. I have thought about her every minute of every day over these last few months. Almost every day since Brooklyn was born I’ve told her a story about her grandmother. Eventually, I’ll run out of things to tell her but now that we have her diaries I’ll have a lot more things to tell her to keep her memory alive.

My eyes slide over to my brother whose legs are bouncing up and down. He’s probably feeling the same way as me in this moment. “Hunter,” I say his name to get his attention. I wait until he’s looking me in the eyes. “Maybe, if you want, we can read the first entry.”

Hunter clasps his hands out in front of him, leaning on his knees and nods. “Okay, as long as you want to then I’m ready.”

I take a deep breath and reach for the worn black diary. I set it in my lap with shaking hands. “I’m scared.” I whisper. I don’t want to be sad any more than I am already but I miss her and I think by reading this…it might help dull the sadness or it’ll hurt more than it already does. A gamble I’m willing to risk.
