I quietly approach my creaky staircase, looking around for any signs of my brother. With no sight of him, I rush down the stairs and of course, standing right there is Sebastian. He stuck his hand out and gave me a firm look. I stepped back a few steps and breathed heavily- looking at him with a grim “I’m sorry” look.
“So um, I’m guessing I woke you up…. Again?

He nodded his head. Waking him up at 4:30 every morning always puts him in a dreadful mood. But knowing him he’ll go off, get high, and forget all about this confrontation. He dropped his arm and sluggishly walked off to his car- god knows what he’s doing.

I wish I could figure out who I am and why god put me on this earth to just suffer through everything. Why can’t I be normal? So many questions I want answered, yet, they still go unread.

I walk up to my school, slowly. I clench onto my shirt and bite my lip. Should I go in? Or should I run away? I toss those two questions around in my head, and choosing to go in, I hesitantly walk up to the door-…
