8. Oh Brother

My mum worked. A lot.

This meant I was home alone for quite a while, curled up with my huge, fluffy cat Monster watching re-runs of Friends.

I absentmindedly played with the fur on his head, giving him a Mohican. Monster gave me a look and jumped down.

I sighed.

Whatever it was mum did, it sure took up a lot of her time.

All she’d ever told me about her job was that she was doing it to “make up for your fathers sinful debts.” I wasn’t aware of any money worries but maybe that meant it was working?

For all I knew, she could be a pole dancer.

Dad….wasn’t around.

So it was just me and Monster, the latter of which was attempting to sort out the fur on his head in the corner, casting me a glare every so often.

I should really be revising, I thought but Corbett’s little proposal earlier had my mind too scattered.

Corbett?

Corbett?!

He was like my brother. I didn’t seriously see anything working between us.

I mean, that was half the excitement of a new relationship wasn’t it? Finding out everything about the other person.

Brothers?

Sisters?

Grandparents still alive?

Hobbies?

Dreams?

Aspirations?

And the other, smaller things. What they smelt like, where they put their hands when they kissed you…

Corbett had one twin sister, Brenna, his grandparents were dead along with his dad, his hobby was acting, he wanted to be an actor, he smelt like earth and his hands generally stayed on my face.

Where was the fun?

The excitement?

I heaved another sigh and threw my arm over my eyes.

This was giving me a headache.
