I woke up, fearing to open my eyes. the hard floor pressed hard on my back, as if he wanted to suffocate me. You can’t back out now. I knew I couldn’t back out, we planned this job now for weeks. It is up to us now. I finally opened my eyes in disbelief . today is the day. I could smell the fresh baked tortillas and homemade menudo Rudy’s mom had made for us that morning. We didn’t eat that delicious meal.
Like the people we wanted to imitate and follow, Rudy and I prepared ourselves for the task ahead. We dressed in all black as if to hide in the shadows of the damned. There were no shadows, only the light of GOD shining bright on our evil minded bodies. now that i look back on it, I know GOD was speaking to me. telling me not to it. i was to hard headed at the time to listen.

I snatched the cold, hard steel out of his hands and proceeded to walk into the store, determined to do what we planned for weeks. Through his eyes, I knew he was scared. He was not gonna hide that from me. He was scared and I knew it. I was too. “Put your hands up and do not move!” I felt my voice pierce the silance and harmony of the room. I am in charge now, I am the boss. I repeated that to myself a couple times. As a 13 year old boy standing among these men striking fear into their hearts, I was the lion, I was the king surrounded by prey. I pointed my weapon at the owner’s wife who had worked behind the counter. “Get away from the damn computer with your hands up!” I yelled as i threw my bag at the man. At a young age I made the decision to hold up a store. With much more of my life to live, that day could have been the last. My consequences were severe for someone my age with no priors. I was sentenced to 3 years probation and 4 months in the Gilliam. I served my time and was rewarded for good behavior while I was in

    I never expected it to be like this. So desolate and hopelessly alone. The stinging smell of bleach and the metallic taste in my mouth leaves my mind numb. I glance to the clock, and I am pained to see that only two minutes have passed since I last checked. He should be here by now, but I am not surprised that he isn’t, punctuality has never been one of his strong suits, although I had hoped he would understand the importance of this moment. Frank was a good man, I didn’t doubt that, but he did have his own way of dealing with…

    many crimes, and participated in many criminal activities. However, as I think back to them now, I regret each and every one. I have had sleep overs in juvenile jail, and worked many community service hours. I wish that I had never participated in these criminal acts, however, luckily to the young offenders act, I was given the chance to put my stupidity behind me and have my criminal record deleted now that I am the age of majority, and not have the burden of my childish mistakes lingering over my shoulder for the rest of my life.…

    A criminal record at any age could severely affect one’s life and future. For example one can lose their job and any opportunities that may present themselves. A criminal offense depending on how serious the charge is they may lose their right to vote for good. If the offender is a minor any opportunities for future education and scholarships are virtually out the window. I understand that what I did could determine the quality of the rest of my life. It could affect my family that I could possibly start in the future; it could destroy my reputation and the trust of my parents. Teenagers can easily fall in with the wrong crowd which is usually why they will start behaving irrationally. The peer pressure and influence of ones self-esteem issues can get one involved with things that one would not usually consider doing ever. As a senior in high school one may think that he or she can party, drink under the age of 21, and other substances because it is their last year before college and they can smell the freedom. What they are not aware of, like me, that no matter what time in their academic career he or she can get into serious trouble. Getting caught as a minor while applying for college, scholarships, grants, athletic commitments, or military service. Can jeopardize the bright future that they have just a few short months away. At any time a college, job, or scholarship can be revoked. I was stupid and sophomoric to think that I was immune to any of the consequences involved with illegal activities at my age. Also everything I had going for me was put in danger. If there was anything I could say to advise one of my peers that believed he or she could party and drink alcohol under the age would be that it’s not worth it. And that he or she should would be remise if they did not just wait till they were 21. Even if they made it to college, heading down this path becomes increasingly risky because they are now a legal…

    Now how about jail time and it goes on my record, over do the limit and I might as well start working on my jail visits. Don’t get me wrong or take it the wrong way, I’m not saying go out and don’t get caught. No, the point is thinking and using my head before I do it again.

With a kiss from his wife he intercepted the breakfast plate as if it were a football in the 4th quarter. They started walking towards the table as their little girl Selena whom they called Red (because of her hair) galloped down the stairs like a horse at the stables.

    The alarm loudly buzzed off at exactly 5:00 in the morning. Though my head ached because of lack of sleep from the previous night, my feet searches where my bedroom slippers are. Finding them, I quickly arrange the bedcover and folded my blanket. Eyes half-open, I slowly made my way to the kitchen and filled the kettle. While waiting for the water to boil, I prepared two cups with coffee, sugar and creamer: one for me, the other for my father who is already physically incapacitated because of the head trauma he suffered from a vehicular accident some three years ago. Coffee prepared, I went to my parents’ bedroom and called them up. Slowly and unsteadily, my mother helped my father to get up. We had coffee together while engaging in our usual morning conversation. Thirty minutes later, I am pulling out from the cabinet my sangria red uniform. Done with dressing up, I made my way out of my bedroom and bid goodbye. I went out of the house and started my journey to where I worked. On the way there, things played on my mind: is the allowance I gave to my brother who is enrolled in a state university as a freshman enough for his meals and other miscellaneous expenses, mother has to go to the doctor for a check up, father is not eating well, electric bill is coming, the fridge is almost empty but for the bottles of water and medicines, payday is nowhere near. All these played in my mind, unmindful of the traffic and the number of pupils, employees, teachers all in a hurry to reach where they are headed.…

    Short Story About a Ruler

    Looking out the windows, I can see the view of the entire city, as if everything transforms to these blurry colorful little dots. Sitting on this shiny leather soft chair in an office that is 57 floors above ground, I have just made an announcement about how the tax is going to be raised again due to our circumstances. Every clerk working in this building is still waiting for me to sign the documents that need to be approved by tomorrow. Every time I walk out of the door, people greet me with respects and admirations. The people see me as a clever and profound leader, and they trust me thoroughly. After leaving the office, I’m on my way to a family dinner. I stop by this wide, fancy store in downtown to pick up a bouquet of fresh roses. Looking forward to meeting my family brings me back those memories of our fun time. We would go out, travel; even having a picnic in the park next to home was exciting. When I arrive, everyone is constantly moving in a rush to serve food that the kitchen is in a serious disorder. As a leader, it’s hard for me to bear this kind of situation, therefore I step up to direct them,” get that turkey over here in the center of the table”, “you, yes you, go help them in the kitchen”. Presently, a voice coming out of my right side asks gently “Can you get me that glass of water beside you please?” ‘’Why don’t you get it yourself? I have better things to do than getting you that glass of water’’ Words come straight out of my mouth before I can analyze. Just right after I answered her, another voice shouts, “stop being so arrogant! This isn’t your office, and we’re only trying to have a simple dinner.’’, this time it’s my mother; she walks out of the house madly and slams the door. Time pauses at this moment, it seems like even a pin drop can be heard, everyone stops talking. I look around, sensing the guilt as I see everyone’s stares. It devastates me to see that our relationships have been more…

    I woke up this morning to the sound of my alarm clock, charming like church bells when it strikes noon. I open my eyes; it’s bright from the early morning sun gleaming through the cracks of my blinds, bouncing off the four walls. As I lay in my bed thinking about today’s chores, they run through my head like a batter just hitting a home run. I finally motivate myself enough to walk down a flight of stairs that feels like a lifetime to go down. A silence breaks through the dusty air that I feel is choking me with every breath I take. No one is home, I’m all alone.…
