The ferry tooted its horn three times and slowly made its way towards us. Dawn was just starting to show as we sat to wait for the rescuer. We all sat together and stared at the beautiful water path of freedom. Ambo laid her head down onto my lap and closed her precious eyes. Mom and dad were hugging each other and acting all ‘lovey dovey.’ Even though I was disgusted, I smiled happy that we had made it.
Papa sat on my right leaning back on his hands with a big old smile on his face. “You know something Kiki?”
“Hmm?” I asked contently.
“Those darn soldiers tore my jacket. Now what am I going to do with a big old hole the size of a basketball in my jacket? I guess I can’t get any more use out of it anymore.” He chuckled.
Then Papa stood up and threw his jacket into the river and watched it float away. “I knew that there would be one day that I had to say goodbye to that jacket, but at least it was for a good reason!”

He laughed and put his arm around me.
