My friend Alyssa moved across the street when I was five and we were always together. When she came to my school when I was nine I noticed she always weared the same flowered print skirt and pink top and white flats. I started noticing bruises on her arms and cheats. one day after school she was at my home doing homework when she finally am muted to me her parents abused her. I told her she should tell our teacher but she refused. I lived on a small island and there was only one church so that sunday I saw alyssa come in sit down alone and then after the service walk home. One day I came in the school there was only one school on the island and you had to take a 45 minute boat ride to get of the island. Well every one was sad because we learned alyssanhad died. She want to become a wife, mom, and animal rescuer and get a phd but she nver caught to do anyone of those things. She had a tan brown hair and blonde hair she was so pretty, she always smiled and said your nvered fully dressed without a smile. They played the song your never fully dressed without a smile at her funeral as tribute to her. They also had 1000 white carnations her favorite flower. The coffin was closed because a the horrible condition her body was in. I miss my friend Alyssa she was only eleven when she died. Well alyssa don't lie no more. R.I.P Alyssa Monroe!
