The Ups and Downs

Hi 15 year old Jenni and now have to move. My parents split when I was 13. I have a younger sister Payton she is 14. My dad got full custody but lets my mom see us every other weekend and on some holidays. I now have a step mom Ashley, and now a step sister and brother. My step sister is Kristi 18 and she is so rude. My step brother Justin is 16 same grade and stuff as me just I have a late birthday. He's cocky and always making fun of me. The usual. Ashley and my dad have been together for a year and a half. They are engaged... Great!!
I have light brown hair that is at my hips and dark blue eyes. I'm really emotional, sometimes, and I have a boyfriend!! That's all you need to know about me:)

Hey just to let you know this book has mature language not for young viewers please not there is mature language. Thanks


4. Big FIGHT!!

"W.. why  are you here? Carter please.." I said I was upset he isn't helping.

"Jen listen. I'm sorry I was a dick. I really like you and miss you, please don't do this!!" He said. He looked so sad. I can't handle this. I was now crying. 

He wiped my tears but I moved his hand away.

"NO!! This can't happen. You broke my heart!! You don't get me! Please just go!" I yelled. I was broken. 

"Fine. But Jenifer Rose Anderson Cooper, I need you to know I have fallen in love with you. When I first saw you I wanted to call you mine. The past 3 years I have loved you, I didn't tell you because I didn't want to wreck our friendship but now I have because I didn't tell you. I am sorry. Good-bye." Then he left.

I closed the door and went upstairs. 

I washed my face and went back downstairs.

*Carter's POV:

I hurt my best friend and I now am in love with her. I can't get her out of my mind. How could I be so stupid? I wish I could start over and rewind. 

I will miss her eyes, her laugh, her smile, but really I will miss her..

*Jen's POV:

What just happened? Carter loves me? Me of all people in this world he picks me? All this time he has loved me!!? Oh well he hurt me and we aren't friends!!!

I walked downstairs and my dad was at the door talking to my mom.

"Hey dad!!" I said giving him a hug.

"Hi peanut. Ready?" He asked looking at both me and Payton. (Peanut is Jen's nickname.)

"Yup" I said popping the p.

"I think." Payton said a little confused.

"Well c'mon." My dad said walking to the car.

"Bye mum!! I will see you soon. I might take the bus here sometime this week." I said hugging her.

"Bye mummy. See you in 2 weeks." Payton said with a smile.

"Bye girls. Call me!" She yelled as we walked to the car.

We hopped in and drove home.

When we got home I went up to my room. I unpacked and went back downstairs to the living room. 

"Hey, still got that period of yours??" Justin asked with a smile.

"Shut up!!!" I yelled sitting beside him on the couch. "What's on?" I asked curious.

"Much Music countdown. Wanna watch with me?" He asked looking at me.

"Sure. Want something to eat?" I asked getting up.

"Yah!! I think there is pizza in the fridge." He said looking to me.

"Found it!!" I yelled. 

After I heated it up I brought it into the living room and the Countdown just started. 

"Yumm!! Thanks sis." He said hugging me.

"Welcome. Since when do you hug me? Actually touch me? I thought I was gross?!" I asked with a confused look on my face.

"Well I thought about that and well, we better get use to each other I mean Dad and Mom are getting married." He said looking at me with a smile.

"True. Wait, why do you call my dad dad? I don't call your mom mom?" I asked now just thinking about it.

"You don't know?" He asked and his eye brows raised.

"Know what?" I asked a little scared.

"I'm not your step brother.. I'm your half brother. Your dad is my dad.." He said slowly.

"I.. what.. How?" I was feeling dizzy and confused.

"Well.. After my mom dumped my sister's dad she went out with your dad and got pregnant. But then they broke up and your dad started dating your mom and your mom got pregnant. They got married just before they had you. I'm sorry.. I thought you knew." He said putting an arm around me. 

I was shocked. My dad never told me. I don't think my mom knows either, she would of told me. I got up and went to find my dad.

"Dad!!" I yelled.

"Yah? Jen what's wrong?" He asked from upstairs.

I ran up the stairs and into his room. He was packing. Another business trip I guess.

"Dad.. why.. Why didn't you tell me Justin was my real brother!?" I yelled, I was so mad.

"Well. I was trying to protect you!! I didn't want you to know. I didn't think there was a point!!" He yelled.

"Protect me!!!! He is my brother!! You hid him from me my whole life!! My own brother! How could you, I went to school with him my whole life. Thanks dad!!!" I yelled and ran out of the room.

"Jen!!" He hollered after me. 

I ran to my room and locked the door. I looked at my Niall poster. (niall from 1D) 

"I hope I meet you!! My family sucks." I whisper.

I decide to see what Niall is up to so I go on Twitter.

'New York what a place! Lovin it today! Havin great Craic ! @zaynmalik just walked into a filing cabinet hhaahah'

I wish I was with him. I bet he wouldn't break a girls heart. Oh how I wish I could of laughed with him when Zayn walked into the cabinet. 

I went onto youtube and started watching One Direction videos. Just then I came across a video called: One Direction on Surprise Surprise. I clicked it. (here is the link: ) 

I died laughing. It was hilarious. 'His eyes look weird.' 'No No I swear I just saw Liam move.' Oh jeez.

I smelt food so I decided to get off the computer and go see what they are eating. I walked to the kitchen and saw that only Ashley was in the kitchen.

"Hey Ashley, want help?" I asked walking over to her.

"Sure dear. I guess its just you, Justin, and I for dinner." She said turning to me.

"Dad left?" No goodbye for me. Not surprised. "Where's Payton and Kristi?" I asked.

"Ya, he left a little while ago. He said bye and he loves you but didn't want to bother you. Um Payton went to Julia's and Kristi is who knows where." She said with a small smile.(Julia is Payton's best friend)

"Oh. We were fighting but I guess you know. When is Payton coming back? It's a school night." I asked.

"Yes, I'm not mad at you I understand your frustration. Justin was just as mad. I think Payton is spending the night. Is she normally aloud?" She asked looking at me.

"Oh okay. Ya, as long as she isn't late for school." I said and went to grab the plates and silver wear.

"Okay. Thanks for helping. When your done that can you get Justin? He's been in his room since you left." She asked while taking the lasagna out of the oven.

"Sure." I said.

After I set the table I walked up stairs and knocked on Justin's door.

"Justin?" I asked.

No answer.

"Justin!!?" I said getting annoyed. 


I opened the door and found Justin sitting on his bed with his headphones on. The music was blaring, I could hear it. 

I walked over and took them off his head. 

"DINNER!!!" I yelled in his ear. 

He jumped. "Okay, okay. Calm." He said.

"Well turn down the music next time!" I yelled and walked out of his room and downstairs.

"Is he coming?" Ashley asked.

"Here." Justin said behind me.

"Let's eat! I'm starving!!" I said and grabbed some lasagna.

We ate in silence. When I was down I cleaned my plate and went to go upstairs.

"Jen?" Ashley asked.

"Yes?" I asked.

"I was wondering if maybe you and Justin would like to go bowling or something. I'm going out with some friends and don't want you two in your rooms all night." She said looking at both me and Justin.

"Can I go to Derek's?" Justin asked.

"Only if Jen is going with you!" She said to him.

"Fine. Jen go get ready and meet me here in 15." He said looking at me and winked.

"K" I said and ran upstairs. 

The wink meant we were going to a party. So I needed to dress up. 

I ended up wearing this:,default,pd.html?dwvar_0870455880020_color=001&start=12&cgid=womens-dresses-rompers

and my hair and makeup looked like this:


I went downstairs and Justin was waiting.

"Bye! Be back by 12." Justin yelled and we left before his mom saw what I was wearing.

We got to the party and I saw Andrea.

"Andrea!!!" I yelled.

"Jenni!! How are you?" Andrea yelled and came over.

"Okay. I mean me and Carter aren't friends but I'm okay. Lets go PAR-TAY!!" I yelled.

"Okay!!" She said with excitement.

We went in. We were dancing and having fun. Just then Carter walked in. He was walking towards me.

"Jenni?" He said.
