Daddy says if I help, then he’ll take me out to get ice cream! So for a couple days, when I get home from the bus, I’ll check the mail. If there was letters in there, then I would take each of them to my daddy, and have him look at them. After about two days, he said I had found it.
I want my mommy. I want her even more then I want ice cream. Daddy says, “Mommy’s not coming back.”
“Okay...” His face gets a little sadder when hears that. I still want my ice cream. I think I’ll get peppermint flavored.
Daddy was yelling again, but all I did was ask for ice cream. I wanna know when I get my ice cream. Now I want it superman flavored. I ran up to my room and shut the door, like I saw Mommy do. I didn’t see what happened next, because Dad told me to clean my room, and that if I didn’t, he wouldn’t give me my allowance.
I’m in my room, I’ve been in here for a while. I’m just laying on the floor, by my teddy bear. Daddy still isn’t coming. I can hear him shouting at his lawyer friend again, about the letter I found.
I’m scared. I hear him saying, “Fine! I’ll read the letter!” Then his voice became quieter and softer. I even started falling asleep. I was awoken by a sharp BANG!
I got off the floor, ran downstairs; and saw my Daddy, on the ground. He had a little hole in his head.
Mommy was standing over him.
"Mommy!" I ran over and hugged her, but then a question arose in my mind. "Mommy, what did you do to Daddy?"
She got down on her knees.
"I just collected his life insurance."
