Mia's mom is always working and her dad doesn't live with her anymore. She is left with just her older sister.
I wonder what time mom comes home, I really don't wanna have to walk to dance practice.
A while ago, but not too long ago, Mia's older sister, Erica, suffered injuries after being hit by a car. She was lucky enough to survive but now Mia has a constant fear of walking home and having to cross streets.
I'm happy my sister has recovered well from her accident. But I never want to cross a street ever again.
Mia's mom hadn't come home on time so Mia had to walk to her dance practice. And at this point she knew she would have to walk back home too.
I just have to be careful and look both ways before crossing.
As Mia began to cross the street, she was a little relieved to see a cop next to her although, he kept looking at her which made her a little uncomfortable.
I wonder why that cop is staring at me.
She was about to reach the side walk when all of a sudden... the cop yells at her and a red car speeds right in front of her face as she turns.
Terrified, she stood frozen holding her face as she watched the cop run to the red car.
