I didn’t understand. What a blissful oblivion. Though I’d seen the pool of liquid- the color of scarlet, I had merely assumed someone had been painting. A lovely portrait, like the picture I had in my necklace. It was my mother. Her face was blank- emotionless. I was asleep, of course. It was dawn. I heard the door creak open, I held the covers up to my chin. There was breathing, I could tell. It was a man. He stood there for 2 minutes, I tried to keep still. Soon enough, the door shut loudly. I panicked; mother surely would not let them in the house. My instinct told me to follow him, so I did. I knew the door would be loud; therefore I opened it with caution. Walking down the halls, I heard a scream. It was blood curdling. I was taken aback; I couldn’t help but gasp. One of the biggest mistakes I had ever made. The man, the figure in my room- he was there. His hand was covered in blood, he was clutching a knife. His expression much like mother’s in the portrait. The last thing I ever received from my mother. The only thing I could remember. It was a pool of blood. Of course, no one would be painting at that hour. The last breath I took, I could only utter the words, “Mother.” For the last time I would see her, it would be in the painting. The last memory, the last token I had. I could not live with myself that way. So I made a portrait. My life was a great work of art. No one ever got the chance to paint it. I couldn’t let that happen. I remembered my mother telling me something. Artists usually never become famous until death. So I made a promise to myself. I would become a famous artist, just like my mother.
