Real Heroes Wear Sneakers
Bay Area Teen Writers, Volume 1

I felt my heart beating hard in my chest. I had to move. I had to do something. The moon shone through my window, illuminating only a section of my room. The picture frame on my dresser sparkled, catching my eye, as if shocking me into action.
I got up, my legs moving mechanically in the
direction of my mother's room. Don't tell anyone, I heard your voice repeat over and over. Please.
I stopped, my hand resting on the cool, smooth doorknob. I took a deep breath, trying to shake the tears from my eyes. "I'm sorry," I whispered, barely audible to my own ears. I opened the door.
- Excerpt from Jamie Altman's "I Promise"
