The Bad Side

By Kabao Khang

This is how it started

My name is Kabao. I finish high school and I attend to college but it didn't work out so well for me. My life was the opposite of what I had in mind. I screwed my whole entire life up. I made too many mistake in life that I couldn't make it that far. I should of listen to my grandmother. She didn't want me to make these mistake and I made them anyways. I listen to all her stories and lessons and I still make the same mistake.
One day, my best friend came up to me asking me if I wanted to attend to this one party. I'm not that type of person who parties, but I decided to give it a try and attend the party. I met this boy, named Jake at the party and he completely changed my life after this night. I'm glad I came to this party and met some new people. After this night, I wanted to attend to every single party that anyone was throwing. That's how wild I got over one night, one party. Every time I heard about a party, I had to attend. I careless about school, my grades, but mostly why I came to college for. I'm all about the party and that's it. I don't even care about school. When I figured out that I was failing all my classes. Knowing that I was failing my classes and needed to pay for my books. I decided to look for a job and I got hired by Burger King. I started working there for almost a week now. I needed the money to pay for my books. I needed the money now, so I decided to steal some money from Burger King. Luckily, I didn't get caught by anyone. Instead of paying for the books, I used the money for drugs.
Finally, Jake ask me to be his girlfriend and I said yes to him. After that day, we hang out every single day. We party together, mostly we did everything together. Then I finally a few months went by, I found out how I was doing in school. It wasn't how I wanted to be. I didn't want this party life to take over, but it did. I don't even care about school anymore. All I cared about it the party life I had. So I decided to drop out of school without letting my parents find out. I don't want them to be disappointed in me. I didn't want them to think that they waste their time helping me accomplish my goals and at the end it was all for nothing. If I told my family that I drop out of school, my family is going to think it's because of my boyfriend. That he's a bad influence on me.
My family founded out that I drop out of college and was very furious with me. They didn't even want to look at me or talk to me. That's how furious they we're with me. They said it was all Jake's fault because they know how he is. He's the reason why I drop out of school and everything. They want to split us up, but they couldn't because I found out that I was pregnant. I had Jake's baby. Later on when I told him, I was pregnant he was surprised. He didn't expect to be a baby daddy yet, but he told me he was happy. I told him that if we're parents now. I can see that he is really scared to be a dad.
He propose to me. He finally did it, I was so happy to be his wife. We're going to have a beautiful and happy family. That's all I could think about. This was one of the happiest day of my life. I couldn't be any happier. A few months went by, It was the big day. It was my wedding. I was so excited for this day to happen! It's finally here, I'm going to get married. As the day flew by, things were going great. Exactly how I wanted it to go. By the end of the day my wedding was over. But something strange happened, my water broke. I was going to have this baby. We rushed into the hospital. After I got done giving birth, my beautiful daughter was the precious little thing I ever seen. I named her Bella. After a couple of days, we took Bella to her new home. Everything was going the way I wanted it to go. After a two months, Jake started to change. He wasn't home anymore, he's always with he's friend, and he's never here to help me take care of Bella. He's barely home, I think he's cheating on me. So basically, our marriage was going down hill. At last, I finally talk to him and ask him what was going on and he told me straight up that he wanted to leave me. So we got divorce. I got kick out of his house. I had no where to go. My family don't want to help me anymore because I screwed my whole life up. I'm a homeless woman with one child.
