reached my house and nobody was home, as usual.
"Wow." Seth said staring at my house in what looked
"What?" I asked curiously.
"Your house.. it's huge." he told
"Really? I think it's just decent to our family."
"How many people do you got living in your house?
20?!" he exaggerated.
I laughed. "No. I have one father, one mother, and a
sister... and me of course." I told him.
"That's it?" he asked me.
"Your house is huge." he said with his mouth
"I get that," I said with a laugh.
"But.. but it's h-" I cut him off.
"I know... how about we get inside and have a drink. What
do you want?" I asked him.
"Umm, you have Iced Tea?" he asked me.
"Yeah. One sec lemme get it." I walked to the fridge
for drinks and grabbed it instantly. Green Tea is the
family's favorite drink so it was right in front.
"Thanks babe," he said with a smile. "Aren't
you gonna get some?" he asked me.
"Oh! Yeah I got it, " I said as i jogged to the
fridge again. I grabbed the same thing. There was a long
scilence of us just glugging our drinks.
"Sooo..." Seth said, breaking the scilence.
"Sooo..." I said mimicking him. We both laughed. But
then after a while we got into one of those 'meaningful
stares' for a couple minutes but I couldn't take the
whole thing seriously so I started laughing after a couple
minutes. He smiled.
"I love your laugh," Seth told me. I laughed again.
He was so sweet.
"So what do you want to do?" I asked him.
"What do you have to do?" he asked me.
"Well, I have a pool table, an air hockey table, a ping
pong table, that football thing, Rock Band 2... umm, that's
all the stuff that's inside I think." I listed all the
things that popped into my head.
"What are the things you have outside?" he asked.
"I have a trampoline, a pool that starts at 3 feet and
goes down to 10, a beach- don't worry it's clean!-
boating, canoeing, we can go on the hammock. I can't think
of much more," I told him.
"Canoeing sounds fun," he said.
"Okay let's go!" I said as I grabbed his hand and
led him to our beach. It was just behind my house. "Okay
so here's the canoe.. we need to drag it to the water. The
paddles are already in there. I got this end, can you grab the
other?" I asked him.
"Oh yeah sure!" he said as he ran to the other side.
We picked it up and brought it to the shoreline. I set it up
and had him sit on the back. I dragged it into the water and we
"Start paddeling!" I jokingly yelled as I handed him
the paddle. "Go go go!" I laughed. He laughed as
well. He paddled one way and I paddled the other so we were
going in circles. I turned around to face him and we just
started talking. Talking about everything. Like, what our
favorite color, food, drink, thing about each other..
everything. I liked learning things about him because he was so
interesting. After a little bit, we got into some personal
stuff. "So, what's so bad about your mom?" I
asked him, hoping he'd tell me.
"I-it's nothing.." he said looking down.
"C'mon Seth. It's something.. you can tell me
don't worry," I assured him.
"Well, when I was around 5, my real mom ran away.
She left the whole family.." he said getting quieter as he
said the sentence.
"Oh my gosh I'm so sorry," I told him.
"Then my dad found a girl and she seemed all fine and
dandy, so he married her. For the first couple months of their
marrige, she seemed like a wonderful lady, but then she started
getting weird.." he said hesitantly.
"What do you mean?" I asked confused and kind of
"Well, she kept yelling at me for no reason, or for such a
tiny reason and she took it way out of control. That happened
last year. It went on for quite a few months.. Then she started
hitting me with her hands. And then, with a belt. Then she hit
"Wait.. you have a sister?" I asked him, not knowing
"I did..." he said starting to tear up.
"What happened?" I asked really worried.
He started off slow, "Well, my step-mom..." he
