[![endif]--] [!--StartFragment--] In the far west of Virginia lived a lovely family of three. Aiden, the six-year-old child and his family decided to go play the dart board game. They played in Charles backyard; Charles was Aiden's best friend. It was Aiden's mother first time to play the dart board game, Mrs. Smith. Charles and Aiden were like doves who never leave their families side. When Aiden figured that his family was going to Charles house, he jumped up and down the sofa and ran to his room to get going. He grabbed his toy cars, sweater, and a water bottle stacking them in his Spiderman book bag to not waste any second that he could have been playing with Charles. As soon as Aiden got to the luxurious two-story house, he ran upstairs to play freeze tag with Charles. Their backyard was huge, and the house had four bedrooms and 3-bathrooms. Since the backyard was enormous, Mrs. Smith decided to take a risk on learning how to play the dart board game. Mrs. Smith remembers reading an article about Darts and the rules for the game. She first aimed for the bull's eye and then let go of the dart, the dart flew smoothly until an interruption came. Charles counted to ten giving Aiden time to hide, he hid in back of the dog house which was next to where the game was being held. "Ready hear I come", Charles noticed an aperture through the doghouse noticing Aiden's blue Gap jacket and sneaked to tag him. Aiden herd a stick break and he ran as if a zombie was chasing him. Charles does track and field and managed to tag Aiden in the middle of the field where he freezes. The dart that Mrs. Smith had thrown for her first time had now been the cause of her depression. The dart went 1.56 meters high going through Aiden's ears and getting stuck from one ear to the other when the dartboard was 2.93 meters high. Mr. Smith has haemophobia and once he saw a drop of blood splash to the ground, he suffered a heart attack. Mrs. Smith took into consideration and ran to Aiden thinking that it would be their last time together because of her fault. Charles mother called 9-1-1 and explained that there was a six year old with a dart through his ears and to come as soon as possible because there was already approximately a bottle of blood spread in her backyard. Charles felt guilt for tagging him in the middle of the game and he spread his wings and flew to his room and sat on his bed dangling from one side to the other crying. "Woo- woo- woo", the ambulance came in three minutes where Aiden and Mr. Smith were taken to the hospital. Mrs. Smith and Charles mother went to the Western Virginia Hospital where Aiden and Mr. Smith were being taken. Charles was upset for feeling guilty for tagging Aiden in the middle of the game and for his own mother forgetting him for Aiden. When Mrs. Smith got to the hospitals parking lot, she made Charles mother park the car and she grabbed her purse to the waiting area. She went to the lady in the desk where she said "What room is Aiden Smith in?" she took the picture, grasped the sticker and took the stairs to room 316. When she got devastated to the third floor, it was the emergency room, which she wasn't allowed to enter. Mrs. Smith waited in the waiting room watching Barnie on the television until Charles mother came. Once Charles mother calmed Mrs. Smith down, she asked where had Charles stayed. Charles mom gasped and called the house phone to see how Charles was doing. Charles answered and said "I'm fine, don't worry about me because you have already forgotten me". His mom calmed him down and told him that everything was going to be fine with Aiden and Mr. Smith. The doctors came out of the emergency room and gave Mrs. Smith the news for her husband. Mr. Smith died of a heart attack and the doctors lost him because they came to late to rescue him. Mrs. Smith felt as a punching bag where someone punched her on the heart. Six hours went by and Mrs. Smith didn't even eat a grain of rice of how devastated she was. The surgeons finally came out and so did Aiden. Aiden came out of the emergency room with the dart through his ears, which caused an aghast look on Mrs. Smith. The surgeons said that they couldn't take out the dart because they would be taking a great risk and that she should be very thankful for her son to be alive though not in a grave like her husband. Mrs. Smith convinced Charles to sign up to the freak show and say that his rarity was having a dart stuck through his ears. Charles went and got disoriented because he saw others that had a greater rarity than him. The next week he received an e-mail saying that he got accepted to work at the freak show and that his name was Dart Head. Now that Aiden doesn't have anybody or anything he spends more time in the freak show instead of staying home watching television. Aiden hasn't given up, now he set a goal of working for two more years to get the $4.600 needed for a surgery. He said, "I am determined to live like a normal person as I one's was". Whenever Aiden would perform everyone would think that his rarity was a lie. People would think that Aiden would cut a dart in half, put hot glue on each endpoint, and place one half of the dart on one ear and the other on the other ear. Aiden wanted to prove to everyone that his story of having a dart through his ears was true. He would first get surgery done and have the surgeons back him up by saying that he literally had a dart stuck through his ears. This was going to take time, money, and get people to fall into the truth of his life story. The person that related the most to Aiden was the skeleton dude because everyone would taunt him for being so skinny. People would throw food at him for he can eat to become fatter. He only weighed fifty-one pound and others would scream out stick or string dude. Aiden saw him, as a role model because he never cared about what others would say about him and that's what Aiden should do. Aiden got used to being taunted by others that used to love him, but he would prove the truth. People didn't know that they were making his life better because the more people would go to laugh at him, the more money he would make. He spent two years working for the freak show and was now famous for his rarity. He got the $4,600 for his surgery that he has been wanting for the past nineteen years and spend the last to years trying to make money. Too bad Mr. Smith died, if not Aiden would have had a normal life because his parents would have had the money for his surgery. His mother made a horrible choice on choosing her husband first than his son. She spends the $5,000 that his father had left for if anything occurred for his funeral. Aiden had warned his mom to save the money for a special necessity like taking out the dart from my ears. She could have spent less money on throwing his body in the ocean than on having a funeral for someone that is not even present. Aiden finally received a letter from his mother saying: Dear son, I am sorry for leaving you behind, but I needed time to think things through and for people to know whom I am and not on my past. I love you and I hope you have been saving money to achieve your goal. I promise that I am going to pass by to visit next year. Love, Mom Dear mom, I have learned to forgive everyone that has harmed me throughout my years and why not forgive my own mother. I am still working in the freak show to save up money for a surgery for I can live my dreams of being a doctor. During the summer I would have enough money to get the surgery done to take out the dart from my ears. Love, Aiden One day while Aiden was on stage performing, he saw his old best friend that left him around the crowd of people that were making fun of him. When he finished performing, he ran and tapped Charles on his shoulders. Charles gave Aiden a note saying where they can meet tomorrow to eat something like the old days and to talk. They met at seven in the morning at The Pancake House and Charles told him how much he has missed him. " Why haven't you come visit me?" Aiden asked in a curious voice. Charles said that he felt guilty for making his life miserable by tagging him in the middle of the game where the dart went through his ears making his dad die from a heart attack. While having the conversation, people would come up to their table to ask for autographs and a picture with him. They talked and Aiden told Charles about his goal of getting a surgery done, Charles got surprised and told him that he can do the surgery on him. Charles works in the Western State Hospital and Aiden thought there was a purpose for them to meet again. One day when Charles and Aiden got together at six in the morning to run as they usually did, Aiden tripped over a branch. This caused Charles to panic and called immediately the ambulance because he saw the dart move. The dart was now unbalanced causing Aiden a headache every time he bent down to get something. Thank God that Aiden didn't die, he survived and now had to live with more caution of what he does. This was excellent news for Charles because he wanted revenge and if Aiden died at that moment, he wouldn't have gotten justice. He wanted justice, but done the right way as he thought it was by annihilating Aiden with his own hands. Charles had no mercy what so ever because the only reason why he had become a doctor was to make Aiden jealous. Charles plan was to calm himself down by having no contact with his mom and Aiden, and then years would go bye with him studying to get a master to become a doctor. Once he got his master, he would go up to Aiden as if it was a coincidence. This coincidence would make Aiden fall into his trap of making him think that they are still best friends. This plan took him years to prepare and had finally occurred and had happened the same way he wanted it to. The doctor that checked him when he had tripped had won his trust. Aiden now wanted that doctor to do the surgery on him instead of Charles. Aiden asked Charles if it was ok with him and he said yes because it was his life and his decisions that he couldn't change. This change of Charles plans frustrated him, but he handled it. Charles and the doctor met in the elevator where he had disconnected all of the cameras. Charles took a rapid reaction in the ten seconds he had in the elevator. He grabbed his pocketknife he had in his blazers jacket. Slid the doctors throat and disconnected the power for the elevator. The doctor had been murdered and the elevator got stuck on purpose. Charles opened the top of the elevator and climbed up to the third floor for he can be seen as if he had never been in the elevator at that moment. He went down to the first floor through the stairs and walked innocently to his Mercedes. It was Charles turn to be checked, but he lied and told the policeman that at that time he was in the middle of operating a tumor. The policeman believed him and told him that next time he should be careful and should use the stairs. He smiled and said that whoever did such a crime must be out of his head and must have had some type of jealousy towards the doctor. There were only three months left for the surgery that Aiden has been waiting for practically his whole life. Mrs. Smith came three days after the "accident" had occurred. She had kept the keys of the house, Aiden came back from the freak show at six at night where he turned around and almost had a heart attack. He opened the door, placed his jacket on the couch, and turned around were he saw a shadow. He grabbed a knife from the kitchen and sneaked in the room where he found his mother sitting on his bed. The next morning Aiden felt fresh and was glad to be with his mom as he wished to be. Charles knocked on the door where Mrs. Smith answered because Aiden was in the bathroom brushing his teeth. "Oh my lord, what a handsome young man you grew up to be. I'm so proud to see you together with my son again". Mrs. Smith never doubted about Aiden and Charles friendship because she said that whoever was truly Aiden's friend was because they loved him. Mrs. Smith found Charles to be an example for Aiden, she wanted Charles to teach him everything he knew for Aiden to become a doctor. Nobody ever saw Charles as if he was trying to make Aiden jealous, but that was what he thought he was doing. The day that everyone had been waiting for finally came about. Aiden was waiting for them in the waiting room to get started as soon as possible because the surgery was going to take six hours. Mrs. Smith stayed in the waiting area and Aiden and Charles headed to the operating room on the third floor. The incident of the doctor had occurred on the second floor's elevator where their were policeman closing the elevators for they can still look for clues of the assassin. Mrs. Smith went to the second floor and helped clean the elevator with antibacterial products, when she was cleaning the top of the elevator, she opened the gate. She discovered a camera in the elevator shaft and called one of the FBI agents. He went to the camera room and typed the code for the camera number to watch what had happened on the incident day. There they saw someone with a black mask, but with a doctors white coat. When Charles was a little kid, Mrs. Smith once changed his diapers and washed him because his mom was at a job interview. When Charles was in the shower Mrs. Smith noticed his birthmark on his neck. That birthmark was the same as the one in the camera video. This meant to Mrs. Smith that the murderer was ready to kill her son at that very moment. Mrs. Smith told a police officer and the FBI that it was Charles and they said that the birthmark wasn't enough clues to imprison him. She noticed the necklace that Aiden had given Charles; this necklace said my best friend. Now all of this evidence had brought suspicion to the FBI and they all ran to the third floor where Aiden was located. The police officer went in the room with Mrs. Smith very carefully. The officer saw what Charles was doing to Aiden and immediately reacted and shot Charles. The next day Charles survived and was taken to jail for murder and was sentenced for life. Aiden went back to his regular life having a dart through his ears and working for the freak show. Mrs. Smith met one of the doctors from the Western State Hospital and they got married in six months of knowing each other. Now Aiden had the right person to operate him, this person was his stepfather. He never got any hatred towards Charles because he didn't see what he was doing to him since Charles put anesthesia. This was Aiden's fully developed life with no fake friends and a uniting family. Hel lived a life that everybody wanted and he shared his life by serving others as a doctor and paying to go to the freak show. Aiden and Mrs. Smith lived happily ever after with Mrs. Smith having a husband and Aiden with his marvelous family, but they first had to pass through the fire to get what they have now accomplished.
