Closure

For the first time in his life Gabriel was truly happy nothing was going wrong everything was right. Though deep down he knew it wasn’t it was what he did a long time ago. He looked at his wife sleeping peacefully in his arms without a worry in the world. She’s always felt safe in his arms because she knew he would do anything for her. They’ve been married eight years now and Gabriel always worried about one thing. When Gabriel left home a long time ago he decided he would never go back no matter what. He couldn’t bear for Stella to have to deal with them especially with what they did to him. He’s always wanted more for his family. After a while passed and they had their first child little Gabe these thoughts of regret entered his mind. Would he suffer because he was missing a set of grandparents? Was Gabriel’s distrust of his parents worth possibly hurting his son?
He thought about it a long time and decided it was worth it they would do a lot more harm to little Gabe than good. Sometimes when he looks at his wife he wonders if he cheated her out of in laws. The only family Gabriel has left anymore is his sister who loved her nephew and nieces dearly. After they had their second Ava Gabriel thought about how much better his kids were going to be raised than he was. Until he met Stella the only person who ever cared about Gabriel was his sister which was all he needed. His parents were cruel to him they could even hold their own against the bullies that he dealt with every day. They would tease him just as much and ignore him if he asked to play with them he never got any attention or affection. Which was why when he met Stella he was afraid to lose her the lack of affection made him clingy, he always wanted it. Lucky for him Stella was clingy too just for different reasons.
Gabriel would never forgive himself if his children had to be treated like he was that’s why he broke the cycle. He didn’t hit his kids he took every opportunity to play with them he wanted to be better for their sake. Stella wasn’t surprised at how good of a father Gabriel is she always knew he’d be an amazing one. Just like how Gabriel knew Stella would be an amazing mom, that’s why their youngest Anna is so close to Stella. She sticks to her like glue Gabriel loves watching them they look identical to each other.
His family is what makes him so happy but it also makes him sad. They’ll have to pay for his decision to abandon his family and only stay close to his sister. Deep down he knew it was best but part of him held a hole of guilt for what he did. Gabriel didn’t miss his family and he knew they didn’t miss him but he couldn’t help but wonder does his family miss them? Stella won’t be able to talk to his mom about him and how he gets. His children won’t get to know their grandparents and spend weekends with them like he did with his. Was this really ok? Is this what normal had to be for them? He couldn’t help but think for a moment that his family is a broken one. Then again it really wasn’t his parents never really had a place with them.
As he gently stroked his wife’s soft brown hair Anna crept in and looked at her dad, “Daddy?” she asked quietly and looked up at him. “Yes princess?” She crawled on the bed next to Stella and kissed her head then crawled onto Gabriel. “Are you thinking again?” He couldn’t help but smile, he thought so much even his four year old could tell. “Yes I am.” Anna smiled and kissed his cheek, “Can you tell me what it’s about?” For one reason or another his kids never asked what was on his mind until now and Gabriel just looked at her and asked, “Do you ever miss grandma and grandpa?” She looked at him confused “I get to see them all the time though daddy.” He shook his head gently, “No I mean daddy’s parents. Do you ever miss not knowing them?” Quickly she shook her head no, “No way! Mommy and auntie told us all about them. They sound really scary why aren’t you scary?” Gabriel looked at her wanting to choke up he didn’t know they would do that for him. “Well..” he started softly, “I’m not scary because I have mommy and auntie they’re the nicest people in the world besides daddy.
What did they tell you exactly?” He couldn’t help but wonder what exactly they told his kids, “They said that grandma and grandpa were really mean like bullies and they liked to hurt daddy. One day daddy ran away from them and promised never to go back and to protect us from them no matter what.” She recited happily and smiled at him, “Is that true daddy?” Her voice was so innocent as she asked he couldn’t help but kiss her now. She scrunched it just like her mommy does, “Yes it is daddy doesn’t want them to hurt you that’s why I keep you away from them, Mommy Bubby and Sissy too.” Her eyes were filled with wonder like he was a super hero to protect her, “I love you daddy.” She kissed his cheek and skipped out down the hall.
A tear filled in his eye as he looked at his wife with a new appreciation. He gently kissed her head and hugged her close, “Thank you so much sweetpea…” He said softly as he closAed his eyes and began to drift off now with the knowledge he’d never need to worry about it again.

Awake - Chapter 1
"Y/N, wake up", mother said as she vigorously shook me out of my deep sleep. "Let's get going Y/N this is the last chance you'll get to make any last minute revisions for your dress." Overjoyed for her daughter's wedding, like any mother would be. "I'll be down in a minute, mom" tired from the sleepless nights I've been having these past few weeks. "It-It's near" I though  to myself, butterflies forming in my stomach for the billionth time. "Shake off the doubts Y/N" repeating it in a whisper hoping no one would hear me. Mother's head turning in a matter or seconds. "Did you say something?". "Ahh....nothing, a shower I-I need to take a quick shower" you managed to say with half a forced smile. Hoping she would buy what you were saying. "Okay well, your father and I will be waiting downstairs to eat breakfast. Don't take long" with the sweetest smile plastered​ on her face. She walked out from your room, you sat at the edge of your messy bed. Dropping your body feet dangling on the edge of the bed, facing the ceiling decorated with a clear glass chandelier. Surrounded by expensive clothes scattered around the floor. "Nothing but the best for my little Y/N" is what your father always said every single time you would ask for anything. You laid there contemplating the chandelier like it had the answers to all your problems. Suddenly a vibration coming from your nightstand brought you back to reality. Lazily dragging yourself to pick up the phone to see 10 missed calls 5 new messages. Emediately opening one in particular. Yoongi Is the future Mrs. Min up yet?? Yoongi Don't forget our date today, I've been looking forwards to it for days Yoongi Since you know I barely get to see you due to work. Y/N Ash...I wish we had more time like we use to ^_^ Yoongi Soon you'll have me all to yourself, who knows you might even grow tired of me... Y/N Pabo that would never happen...ever :3 Yoongi Okay okay joking I was only joking, well I have to get back to work Yoongi Can't afford to get fired if I want to keep daddy's little girl happy, right? Slightly laughing at what you just read. Y/N I'm not like that -_- ... you know that lol. See you later alright <3 Yoongi Yea sure lol You nodded in disapproval of his reply. Yoongi Bye. Yoongi Princess <3 "Hmm..strange" raising a suspicious look towards your phone, yoongi usually calls. "I guess he's  just been to busy to call" you brushed it off and rushed for a quick shower.

It is quite common for high school and college students to turn to online research to find a credible custom writing help for their essays and papers. To help you make the decision easily and quickly, we have reviewed MyPerfectWords, a writing assistance company that claims to be 100% legitimate and have native writers for multiple types of assignments. Let's find out if they really are what they claim to be. Quick Review (On a scale of 5 stars) Website Design - 4.5/5 Services - 5/5 Ordering Process - 5/5  Customer Service 5/5 Prices and Discount 4/5  Content Quality 5/5 Customer Reviews 4/5  Conclusion 4.5/5 Website Design MyPerfectWords website design is clean and crisp, something that is hard to find if you are someone who is always looking for online custom essay writing help. Instead of cramming the entire website with, especially the homepage, with content, they have sectioned them and added reasonable spaces between them. The colors are nicely balanced with negative space and the entire site is easy to scan and browse. The transition time between the pages is hardily 2 to 3 seconds, which is pretty quick. However, I find the HUGE list of categories down in the footer a bit overwhelming, i hope they could come up with some clever ideas about them. Services They offer an extensive plethora of services. The range is quite impressive and it is great to see that you will not have to run anywhere else to get your work edited and proofread. They do it all. Besides, they offer a number of benefits. They have detailed the reasons that any student should work with them that includes ‘premium quality content, 100% privacy, unlimited revisions, on time delivery, friendly customer support and order tracking’. To know more, I placed the order on their website. Ordering Process The ordering process is simple. You do not have to fill in loads and loads of information. It has only 3 steps and you can place the order under 15 minutes, which is a great relief. Usually, the companies send a big and detailed questionnaire to fill but, MyPerfectWords has a swift and concise process. Customer Service Once I placed the order, one of the customer representatives contacted me himself, good to know someone does care about us. The person that I communicated with was polite and quite knowledgeable about all the services and he knows how to answer the questions. Talking about questions, the site has an inclusive FAQs section that answers nearly all of the questions and concerns. To help you further, they have some free writing samples that you can view and see how they work. I found them right on top and it is good that I did not have to fish through the entire site to see if they got any work samples. Prices and Discounts Considering what I have found out about the prices other companies are offering, I found MyPerfectWords. a bit in the pricier side. A high school paper price per page is $15, after the 50% discount which is more than what I found on other websites. It is justified or not, I am yet to find out. Content Quality Before going on with how my paper was written, I would like to add that my paper was delivered within the deadline that I had given, no late submissions. Getting to the content quality, my paper was good and I am generally satisfied with the quality. The references were all from credible sources, no Wikipedia, and it was well arranged and structured. I can tell by the look of it that it was written by a Native speaker, which is just what they claim. Absolutely worth the time and their cost. Customer Reviews The company has mixed reviews, which is something that nearly all companies have. People like me would say that their experience was great while there would be some who may not find their experience worthwhile. Whatever it is, instead of listening to anyone, I believe that you should place an order with them and see how it works for you. And from the other site, Conclusion On the whole, my experience was positive and satisfying. Though I do find that the prices are a bit higher than what other companies charge, the results are good and even though they justify their price with quality, I hope that they review them.
