17435 He XX, 8th Grade, Female

Translated by Sara Qiu

My brother and I have always been disgusted about narcotics, we knew about them from when we were little. Sometimes my brother and I didn’t even want to call my parents, mum and dad fell into narcotics and spent all the money. Then, going to school became a problem. At the end, dad obliged my brother to drop school, he could only listen to my father’s words. Actually, my brother really liked to go to school, his marks were very good, he was good at drawing specially. But dad forced him to drop out school to work.

My dad and mum could not even protect themselves, how could they protect us? at that moment I really admired my classmates, they could use around 100 RMB each month and yet, I only had a bill of 20 RMB. When I wanted to buy clothes I didn’t have money, when I wanted to buy food I didn’t have it either. And now, with study pressure I don’t have living expenses. When I think of this, I really hate my parents, I wonder why they fell into drugs. I hate the drugs even more, because they gave my family a hard time.

Afterwards, my father was persuaded by my brother, sister and uncle to give up on drugs, but it left an ailment in his whole body. But mum was still secretly buying drugs to inhale. At the end, she unfortunately died. I was very sad when it occurred. Drugs made me lose the chance to say “mum” again, I really hate it.
