On my sixteenth birthday, I received a letter from Niall. I sat alone on the toilet and I wanted to read it alone.
"Hi!" it said at the top of the paper. "I know I have failed you, and I understand if you're upset. I didn't dare go to the police because I knew this would happen, but I knew you were worth it. I now sit in jail and I will be here some years. I will be sharpen up and I have got the opportunity to educate myself. This isn't the life that I promised you, but I know that everything will be fine, we got at least the truth to the police and I heard that you will stay at Louis mom's house. Darling please, see it as an opportunity. You now have a family that take care of you and it isn't as broken as our family was."
I swallowed and continued reading.
"Many things have happened that didn't might have been good. I know you are hurt for the rest of your life, but I know at the same time that you are strong. You are a winner and a survivor. I know you will find your place again and I know you are going to be something big. The last thing I want to say is that I let you go. We can't be a couple, not when I'm so far away from you. I love you so much, but it would be wrong for me to force you to wait for me. I hope you find an editing guy, a guy who's not a criminal or don't have a lot of crap in his backpack. I wont forget you, and maybe we can get together in a few years and talk? We'll see. Take care of yourself. Hug your Niall."
"Is it okay?" Louis whispered to me. I nodded and threw the letter into the fireplace. I didn't want anyone else would enjoy reading what Niall had written to me. I looked at Louis and then I looked away at Johannah. She set up the cake on the table and I saw some birthday package. I realized that Niall was right. I had a new family, although Louis and I wasn't as siblings. But at the same time, I was used. In my last family I had chosen my brother. In my new family, I chose my brother. I hugged him and gave him a light kiss on the cheek.
"I'm just fine!" I whispered. "Everything's great and now I'm sixteen year old!"
Louis grinning. He saw that Johannah vanished away and no longer saw us. He kissed me right away and I felt how he pressed himself against me. I grinned slightly and ended it quickly.
"Not at home?"
"See you in the bedroom later this night?"
I blushed and then we heard Johannahs voice.
"Are you going into the kitchen or what?"
I let Louis off and looked into his eyes.
"I love you!"
He hesitated and he just stared at me.
I grinned and walked ahead of him into the kitchen.
"You heard me?"
My life was okay. I educated myself and after a year showed Louis and I our relationship openly. I was everything that I had wanted to be and I felt like a normal girl.
I never met Niall again. He could make no sense of life and when he left the prison, he was back with the old habit again. Bobby sat long time in prison, and he left the country when he was set free. I see Greg sometimes, but we just greet at each other. One side of me miss my old family, but at the same time I know that they only gave me problems. Instead, I go ahead and maybe one day I can forgive Bobby. Maybe one day I see them as friends, but nothing more? The only thing I know is that my future's to be with Louis. He's the one who helps me, standing behind me and he's now educated. Louis became a teacher and he has also lectured at various schools. He tells them what may happen if they let drugs, alcohol and other things take over. In my eyes Louis was never an addict, but I have no clue about all that had happened in his life. We chose to put it behind us.
