I open my eyes gentle and saw my mom.sitting on d bed with her wrapper. everywhere was dark. thank to the crack opening of the window that make the midnight moon to pierce to the room. I sat up and wonder wat make her to come to my room by this time of the night. to wake me up, it her voice that jolt me back from the thinking.
