Sit down, Sunbeam, I'll read to you
And though you're so young now
I'll teach you just like I ought to
I'm your sister, I'm your friend, and I'll always love you
Stay still, Sunbeam, I'll hold your hand
And though I can't stop the bleeding
We are here, we are waiting, we are praying for you
Come here, Sunbeam, come dance with me
And though you shouldn't run too fast
I hope you will see
You are ours, you are safe here, we won't ever leave
Wait here, Sunbeam, I'll get what you need
And though you're already growing up
We must make sure you don't bleed
Don't move, don't cry, don't ask me why
I know you're scared, Sunbeam, know I am too
And though I can't say what will happen
I hope we'll make it through
We will go back; return, we will bow to you
I'm reaching for you, Sunbeam, I'm searching for you
And though it is hopeless
I confess I thought they withdrew
I can't find you, I've lost you, don't know where you are
I'm so sorry, S

As I opened my eyes I realized that I was moving, probably on a ship. My clothes were torn but luckily there was a fresh set on the desk. I got dressed and went outside on deck where the sun was rising.
"It's been forever since I've seen a Spanish sunrise," a voice said behind me. I turned around to see none other than Antonio Fernandez Carriedo, captain of the Diablo Rosa, one of the most badass pirates of the sea, and my kidnapper.
"Why did you kidnap me?"
"You see princesa you have the key of unlocking imaginable treasures that I want, so it is only natural that I would kidnap you. Unfortunately there are others after you but we will worry about that later."

For some reason, I honestly don't know why, I have decided to write about my epileptic experiences through the eyes of Kurt Hummel. Why him out of all the characters? Chris Colfer. I should say Chris Colfer's sister, Hannah.
I read about Hannah Colfer's story about a month ago and reading about what Chris' mom does for Hannah really struck a chord with me. For me, my seizures onset when I was 14 years old and just under a week before my 15th birthday, I was diagnosed with Generalized Tonic-Clonic Epilepsy. The neurologists that I have seen for nearly the past 5 years have no idea what the causes of these seizures are and, with the cause remaining unknown, all we can do is treatment by medication.
I write this story in hopes that maybe awareness for Epilepsy is raised. For people like myself and Hannah Colfer, we need all the help that the people are willing to provide. Epilepsy research is underfunded and needs to be brought into a light that will allow researchers to do their jobs.

Humans went on with their life without guilt as it seemed. If one human said one thing, it would effect the others. Humans had gadgets that he just could not imagine. They had been the ones to invent everything, and some things were better off not being invented. They said cruel things but changed their minds almost a moment later.
