Narrative Draft 1 Narrative Draft 1 Growing up with all my family being close to my grandmother , every holiday, birthday,cookout, and sometimes just a bowling get together involved all of my family. really didn't matter if someone was mad at someone else, if we were all together situations and arguments were to be paused during family time. the discipline and order was all created by
“Granny”. So naturally hot Michigan summers, no school, pool in the backyard, basketball court in the house, all these things meant company. Every summer for as long as I can remember all of my family, friends, and strangers basically stayed at our home as if it was a hotel. My family has always been the sharing type, and everyone sees our home as the vacation house. My cousins are usually the ones over and we all hang out and do everything together over the summers. This particular summer I’d say more than half of my cousins were at my house. I remember it like it was yesterday, everyone by the pool, laughter, loudness, music, playing. The phone rings and the ambiance changed.
The phone had ringed and no one really was concerned about it, i could hear one of my sister deep in the background “I’ll get it”,we all just continued on with our intense game of marco polo. A few minutes after the phone had ranged my father had walked outside towards us, we saw him but no one really thought anything of it. Moments after he had came out he said “Kids,
