Every year they decorate the house every inch is filled with cheer, but the family was together and that was all that mattered.
That all changed because of a candle that fell on a stack of papers, and tore the family apart.
Do you want to come hang your stocking up Avery?
Everything they loved burned down in that house, and everything they knew. The day the fire started was December 25, Christmas day.
Can I borrow a pencil?
One year later ... It's December 22 and everyone is excited except that same family who last December lost their home, and one of there own family members. The family was down to 3 members now. The Parents and their daughter Avery.
They are still in a rental. The parents still had the same Christmas spirit but Avery did not. "Do you want to come hang your stocking Avery?" Asked her parents. "No thanks. I going to stay in my room and listen to music." Said Avery.
Avery has totally lost the Christmas spirit after losing her brother. She has only been about herself. She hasn't been getting the greatest grades either. Its just another Monday in December she walks to school. In first hour the girl next to her asked for a pencil to borrow. Avery responded, "No, I don't have any." Which was a lie.
