                                                                                      My father left when I was eight...  

  He told me that our lives weren't working out together. I felt like it was my fault he left. I told my mom I was sorry, and she grabbed my face. "Don't ever say that." She had growled. I wanted to run and hide. Then she found the 'wonders' of alcohol. And I began to grow up...

  BisforBrandon: Hey Echo.

  Echo1998: Oh hi B... :(

  BisforBrandon: Whats wrong Echo? I hope u know that u can tell me anything...

  Echo1998: They still haven't found Willow. It's been ten freaking years! She should be twenty       one by now! 

  BisforBrandon: Calm down Echo. They'll find her. I promise. And besides, u still have me.

  Echo1998: Ur such an idiot Brandon! U don't even know what it's like to lose a family member!

  BisforBrandon: Oh hell yes I do! And u know it. My father! MY FATHER LEFT US!

  Echo1998: Yeah but...

  BisforBrandon: No buts Echo! U still have ur family, ur parents and ur cat!

  Echo1998: My parents kept me locked away for fourteen years, not just because of my eye, also   because my sister left!

  BisforBrandon: What?

  Echo1998: Yeah she left my psycho parents because they tried to protect her too. All I've           wanted since I joined this chat line is to escape my house!

  BisforBrandon: And go where?

  Echo1998: To Florida, and see u.

  BisforBrandon: I guess there would be no better time to tell u...

  Echo1998: Tell me what?

  BisforBrandon: Echo... I think I'm in love with u.

 

  Well this is a shock...

  Echo1998: What?

  BisforBrandon: I love u Echo. Ur mind is an absolutely beautiful thing.

  Echo1998 is now offline...

 

  I think I love him too. I've just covered up my emotions...

  "Echo?!" My mom is looking at my computer screen. Oh crap. "What the hell is this?!" I look her straight in the eyes. "This is my only friend Brandon." She looks furious. "Echo... give me your computer." I give her a panicked look. "No.." "Echo... NOW! I am going to smash that thing!" She tries to grab it. But before she can, I do the only thing I can think of...
