"What is love?
Something that lasts for a few weeks until you get tired of it
and then you find something new to love?" I blurted.
"Love isn't food." Brett responded.
"When you eat too much of the same kind of food, you get
tired of it and move on to a different kind of food. Love
isn't like food."
"That isn't how it is for my life. Long story short,
my dad suddenly started going home everyday drunk, and then
cheats on my mom. Dad suddenly leaves us until mom is gone
forever." I said, wanting to cry again, but held onto my
"Your dad was probably feeling overwelmed. Everything
happens for a reason. He's here for you and Rose now. He
made a mistake, that doesn't mean that he doesn't
regret it. Right now, he probably just wants things to be
normal again with you and Rose."
"I want things to be normal too, but I don't know. My
dad was such a good man. And I thought that he and my mom was
the perfect for each other."
There was a long silence. "Love is a good feeling."
Brett finally said.
"I love Rose. Rose will be the closest thing I will ever
get to love. Rose, and the girls." I said, referring to my
"Yeah, but can you kiss them?" Brett asked.
"Of course I can kiss Rose."
"What I have with them, is the family kind of love."
"How was your first love?" I asked Brett.
"I went on a couple of dates, but I never felt any sparks
with any of the girls I went out with. So I don't think I
ever had a first love." Brett replied.
"Did you kiss any of them?" I asked, pretending that
I didn't care. But I did.
"Well, they would usually kiss me first. So how about
you?" Brett asked.
"I never went on a date before, or kissed anybody." I
looked down, feeling embarrassed.
"Seriously Melissa? I never met any girl like you
before." Brett chuckled.

It was 8 AM on Sunday. Meaning that we have to go back home
before school starts tomorrow. Brett and Lily was already at
Brett's car, ready to go home.
"I'm going to miss you girls. But at least I'll
see you girls soon." my dad said as he gave Rose and I a
"Bye dad!" Rose and I said before going back to
"Wait, Melissa!" my dad called.
"Are you mad at me?" my dad asked.
"No, I'm not mad at you dad. I was just a little
surprised yesterday." I assured him.
"Okay, good to know. See you soon Melissa!" my dad
said before I got in Brett's car. Brett drove back to the

We're finally back at
home. I'm at my room, reading a book. I texted the girls
that we were back, and they texted me loads of questions about
Brett. Brett has been so nice and sweet. This trip made me
realize how much I really like Brett. But I know he'll
never like me. I mean, why would he like me? I'm so
insecure. And like he said, I'm not like the other girls.
In other words, he probably thinks I'm a freak.
I glanced at my alarm clock. It was almost midnight. I am
getting kind of tired... I think I'll sleep now. I was just
about to turn off the lights until Rose appeared at my
"What are you doing up sweetie? You should be asleep by
now." I told her.
"I had a nightmare. Can I sleep with you?" Rose
"Of course." Rose slipped onto the other side of my
bed. I then turned off my lights, laying down on my bed next to
Rose, wrapping her in my arms.
"Rose." I started."Yeah?"
"I want to let you know that no matter that, we'll
always be together forever, and nothing will break us
apart." I promised.
"Okay..." Rose mumbled before drifting off to
What happened to my parents will not happen to Rose and I.
At the end of the day, it only comes down to us. I am
more than Rose's sister, I'm like her mother. And
mothers don't abandon their children.
