Who chose me for this life?

This is a story about a fifteen year old girl and her step brother who was one year older than her. His family moved out, and she had to say goodbye. Will she be able to be without her other family?


1. Chapter 1

You got out of the car and walked up to the house holding the three Iron Man movies and Guardians of the Galaxy. You didn’t want to give them back because after this, there will be nothing to remember the family by. No pictures, toys, nothing. As you knocked on their door tears came to my eyes.

When he opened the door you walked up to him and hugged him. He hugged you back. “It’s been so long, Eli” you said into his shoulder.

“I know… two weeks.” He said as he pulled out of the hug and moved a strand of hair from your face. “You dyed your hair.” he said.

“Yeah I did…” you said back. “I brought the movies…” You said sadly as you handed them to him. He took them. A little girl’s head popped out from the doorway of her room.

“Addie!” she said happily as she ran out and hugged you tightly. You hugged her back and smiled at her. “I missed you so much.” she said.

“I missed you to.”

“I thought I would never see you again…” she said sadly. You felt a pang of guilt for not being there last weekend.

“I’m so sorry Anna.” you said as tears came to your eyes. Eli started to walk up the stairs to his room. “I’m gonna go upstairs now.” You said to Anna and quickly got up and ran after Eli. When you got upstairs you went into Alex’s room where Eli went. You sat on the bed next to him and he wrapped an arm arm around you and held you closely. You sighed and closed your eyes and wanted to believe that this was all a dream. “I don’t want to go home.” you said quietly, but loud enough for him to hear.

“I wish you could stay here.” he said in reply. You could feel a tear roll down your face. After that Wendy walked over to the doorway and stood there. He unwrapped his arm from you and you got up and went over to her and hugged her. She hugged you back and the two of you just stood there hugging. Finally you pulled away and looked at her.

“Thank you. For everything.” You said to her. “I’m so, so, sorry if I ever talked back or anything like that. I didn’t mean it. You are so nice and caring for everybody.” you said as you started to cry.

“Don’t be sorry.” she said back. “You are like a second daughter to me.” She became teary-eyed and you hugged her again. You could hear Eli get up and walk towards you two, then he also joined the two of you. Anna came bounding up the stairs and she saw the three of you standing in the doorway hugging, so she also joined the group.

You all stood there for a while hugging until you heard a honk outside signaling for you to hurry up. You looked at them sadly. “I- I don’t want to go.” You said as tears slipped down your face. “I really, really don’t want to.”

“I know, but you have to.” Wendy said sadly.

She moved a piece of black hair from your face. You walked out of the room and Eli followed you and went down the stairs with you. You hugged him one last time and then started to walk to the door. You opened the door and walked out. Before you closed out the door he whispered, “I’ll see you.” you smiled and ran back in and hugged him once more. As you closed your eyes while hugging him you imagined how happy you would be if you never left. You truly did not want to leave this house. You just wanted the rest of the world to melt away.

You were brought back to reality when the car horn honked once again. You pulled out of the hug and walked out the door and waved goodbye to Eli. You lingered for a moment on the porch wanting to hold onto it forever. You walked off the porch and walked out to the car.

You had let go.

As you got in there was an awkward amount of silence. You got buckled in and put in your headphones and started to play music on your phone. It was only a couple minutes to the house, but you just wanted to block everything out. As “Knives and Pens” by Black Veil Brides played a tear rolled down your cheek. You quickly wiped it away not wanting your brother or dad to see.
