Let me try to put a long story short... The first time i set my eye's on a playstation was when i went to my grandma a grampa ‘s house, my uncle curtis still lived with them he was 17 or 18 he was like my big brother i never had, i never had any brother's mom gave birth too two girls, not that i don't love them i'd always run to the bottom of the stair's to see what he was doing he was always doing something but this time i heard a dirt bike in there....? i slowly sneaked up the stair's peaking inside very slowly.... he was playing Motocross Mania, i asked what it was he said Motocross Mania i'd beg him hours on end to play it, it was the first ps1 game i ever played and still is one of my favorite's today. i never had any friends less you count my cousin but he's famliy. it's sad when the only best friend you've got is your dog, my mom wanted to home school me and my sister's, but i know what your thinking sucks for you you'll never even get a girlfriend... oh but your wrong after i'd get my school work done i'd play video games talk to my mom and sister's and then go outside with my dad and help him work on cars and his triumph bonneville 750 oh she was a beautiy and still is, tell one year my dad went crazy and cut the main phone wire to the phone box, mom called the police they took him too a mental hospital weeks later it turned out he had a condition that would make him do weird things…. So they made him take really strong pills to keep him from doing that stuff.... (skipping years) later after playing ps1 for years.. we finally bought a ps2 in 2008 from need for speed too many other games too many to count, it was so AWESOME may i add.. in 2009 my dad started smoking again he stopped smoking when he meet my mom.. he'd say he's going outside too work on the truck came back hours later smellin like smoke but we didn't realiz the smell because he worked at a pecan factory called derms pecan I think that is how you spell it. He keeps doing it for weeks tell my mom finds him smoking weed outside one night she asks him why he would do that… she told me later when she was outside talking to him that he said that he held his pistol to his head and thought about killing himself she said she cried and told him that she needed him we needed him…… after that he stopped smoking weed but he kept smoking, I couldn't stand him smoking his life away.... (DATE) ( July 20,2009)(Im 14 years old) one night after playing mortal kombat armageddon, my dad comes home from work at 12:am he set at the table eating some food, he’d look at me and call me his buddy he nick named me that I said” good night dad but I didn’t give him a hug and went too bed, I just wish I would have gave him that hug…… next thing I know mom wake’s me up crying I ask” her whats wrong she crys a little bit…. “Daddys died”!!........ she found him died.. we had his funeral a week later, I couldn’t take the pain.. My birthday & my sister’s birthdays are in august..... some B-day huh. then my aunt and Uncle brought a real big box inside they told us too open it we opened it and inside was a guitar hero world tour bundle ‘we grinned ear to ear ran too our ps2 and hooked it up and had a blast. Months later I saved up a lot of my savings and bought my first ps3 I bought resident evil 5 too play, two days later I bought lost planet 1 and with it I meet my first real best friend Stefan.. then I meet Scott and Eric eric’s Stefans brother we’d play every day it never got old… (DATE) (April 1,2011) my grampa started too get sick they took him to the hospital, they did some test’s they couldn’t find anything they recommended for us too take him too a specialist, we stayed at home they went to Abilene, a few days later my uncle called and told us we needed to get too Abilene fast (Hours later)… they break the news he had leukemia stomach cancer it was slowly eating his stomach away inside out they said it looked like he had it since 2010…. we stayed the night there… “he died the next day”…. A week later im changing my cloths and I find this bubble it turns out somewhere along the way I got a hernia… I didn’t tell my mom tell after the funeral because I didn’t wanna make her any more stressed then she already was… had too have Surgery on top of the other stuff… after they took me home, they took me too my room put me in bed fixed the covers I asked mom for a glass of water she left me there, I looked around saw my ps3 I had just bought uncharted 2 and my best friend had bought it because I bought it and wanted too play with me, mom came back with my glass of water I drinked it gave it to her and said thank you.. she turned too leave “hey mom” yeah she said can you turn on my ps3 please? She turned it on gave me the control “thanks mom I smiled” your welcome she said and left, I asked Stefan if he wanted to play uc2 he said yeah sure let’s go “buddy” I smiled”… the moral of my story is people need some help too take away the pain that’s what Playstation did for me… Thank You!
