A girl with an unusual name shares her story.

My name is Mystery McKenna McCabe.  I live in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, with my mama, my step-dad, and my two little (bratty) brothers named Rance and Wyatt (they are six and nine).  I am fourteen years old.

My real daddy left us when I was small; the boys never knew their dad.  I miss him.  He couldn't cope with the fact that Wyatt is autistic, so he fled like the coward he is.  I haven't seen him in eight years.  I was six years old.  Wyatt was just a year old.  And Rance wasn't even born yet.

Mama has been working two jobs trying to provide for us kids.  We aren't rich by any stretch of the imagination, but at least we have each other.  That I can be grateful for.

I don't know why I got the name of Mystery, but I kinda like it.  It's different.  I have long, red hair and big, brown eyes.  I am five foot nothing in just my bare feet (with shoes on, I'm either five-one or five-two), and I weigh maybe 100 pounds soaking wet.  I'm teeny-tiny; always have been little.  Guess it's a blessing, but I'd like to gain at least a little weight; I hate the fat or chubby girls giving me such dirty looks because I am thin!

When I am not at school, I like to chill out, write poetry/stories, sing, take pictures of the sky and clouds, go to the mall with my friends Camron and Tiffany, talk on the phone, and watch television ("America's Next Top Model", "American Idol", "House", "Bones", and "America's Got Talent").  I also love to read and paint.  I have always been a very creative person.

When I get to be an adult, I'd like to go to college and become a professional writer, singer, or photographer.  I'd like to help out my family so they don't have to struggle with bills so much, or worry so much about Wyatt when he has one of his autistic spells.  Sometimes he can get violent and mean in nature, and it's hard to deal with when he's like this.

Well, I gotta run.  Class (English) is about to end; I have to get ready to go to my next class (Art).  I will write in here again soon; until later, this is Mystery McCabe saying so long! God bless!

Well written story, Karen. Funny-----I have a miniature hot dog named mystery and I spent some time in Broken Arrow, OK when I was stationed at Fort Sill in 2003. Thanks for sharing and God bless.
