17 Not Strong Enough

As Kari lay wide awake in bed, she couldn't help but get lost in thought.

Tears welled in her eyes.

I wasn't strong enough to protect papa, big sis Janine, or big brother Mim… And now they're all gone… She thought to herself as tears trickled down her cheeks.

"I wanna become stronger…" She whimpered, as she closed her eyes.

"Kari?" A voice called out.

"Yo Kars, Tammy's here, you ready?" Another voice questioned.

"Ah!" Kari exclaimed, rolling out of bed.

"I must've overslept!" She cried, as she began rushing to get ready.

"Honestly…" Abbey sighed as Kari came barreling out of her bedroom.

"Leave her be Abbey, she's still growing." Sena giggled.

"I guess…" Abbey mumbled.

"Are you two getting breakfast?" She asked.

"You really should eat to keep your strength." She frowned.

"A-ah yea!" Kari nodded profusely.

Kari looked at her, then quickly looked down.

"I-it's nothin'!" She blushed.

"I mean I won't push you to tell me, but just know the window of opportunity is there, okay?" Tammy said, smiling softly.

Kari's eyes widened, twinkling as tears formed.

"W-well…" Kari took a deep breath.

"I feel like maybe if I was maybe good at anythin'…" She swallowed hard.

"Just maybe papa and the others would still be alive…" She said as she choked back tears.

Tammy's eyes widened.

"Kari…" She whispered.

"Big sis, I wanna become stronger!" Kari cried.

"I wanna protect the ones that I love in my own way just like big brother Rick and the others!" She exclaimed.

Tammy looked down.

"D-did I upset ya big sis…?" Kari asked concerned.

"No, it's just…" Tammy looked up with tears in her eyes.

"I feel the same way…"
