"Hurry up, or youll miss the parade!" Joanna stared up at her older brother, her small, hazel, seven year old eyes peering up curiously, hoping to get a grasp on what was happening. Messy, chocolate colored ringlets of hair hung down her face, out of place due to her chasing after him. Her brother, Abernathy, had managed to get her out of the small house they lived in, much to her displeasure, to take her down to see their neighborhoods sad excuse for a parade. It was a cool, summer night, the streets busy with people chatting and dozens of others trying to get a good viewing spot of the parade. The streetlights shone dimly on the cobblestone roads, also giving a slight shadow to the low buildings on either side of the street. The occasional car passed by once in a while. A few teenagers were hanging in the alleyways, looking shady and up to no good. Abernathy glared at a few of them, then made sure his sister was not too far behind.

 

"We wont be able to get a good spot with you lagging behind!" he teased. He started into a run, and was quickly followed by the young girl. "Wait Abby!" she yelled out into the night, using the pet name she had given him since she was three. Her small, stubby legs could not match those of a strong, able-bodied 14-year olds, and she stumbled onto the pavement before her. A small shriek escaped her tiny mouth, followed by slight sniffling. Silent tears streamed down her rosy beige cheeks, and a look of pain took over her face. A trickle of blood fell from her now skinned knee, staining the pavement. Strangely, the many others on the street that night made no attempts to comfort the young girl, instead worrying about themselves. Abernathy, who had just about made it to the town circle, where the parade was supposedly being kept, turned around to face his sister. The only problem was that she wasnt there. He abruptly swiveled his head around. "Joanna?" he said, panic and worry lacing his tone. Then he heard the soft sounds of crying a little ways back from where he had last seen his sister. "Joanna! Where are you?" His yelling got many looks of distaste from passersby. No matter. He had to find his sister.


He found her flat on her bottom, tears still steadily streaming from her hazel eyes. "What happened, Joey?" He stared at her for a while, glad to see that no serious harm had come to her, then bent down on one knee. He gingerly examined her skinned knee, the lifted her up bridal style. Shocked by her brothers sudden action, she let out a gasp as cold air rushed around her. Abernathy looked down at her shaking body with olive green eyes, wavy locks of brown hair framing his strong jawline. The frilly yellow dress with white lace trim their mother had made for her was covered in dirt, and was torn in multiple places. He sighed. Do I always have to end up saving ya from something? Her face scrunched up, offended in only a way a seven-year old could be. "Shut up, you didnt save me," she pouted, not wanting to admit that he did in fact save her. They began to travel back to the town center, beautifully adorned with ribbons and streamers hanging off of lightposts and fencing. The town center had now collected quite a crowd, and it was harder to find a spot to view the parade. He sat her down on a nearby bench, then lifted her up to his shoulders. Music had just begun playing, and the parades band members could be seen just down the street.
