1. Life is Hard


The stars were majestic. The moon was bright. Overall, it was a perfect night. I was tired. It was late. I needed to get some sleep. I heard my parents, next door, in their bedroom. They kept talking about something. Something they obviously didn't want me to know. Something so important, I wasn't even allowed to know.

I shook it off, and climbed into my bed. I didn't even take the time to put my pajamas on. I needed sleep. Sleep was my #1 priority. Who cared that I wouldn't be comfortable in my jeans? I didn't. I closed my eyes, and drifted off to sleep.


Pain. That's all I heard when my parents spoke to me. Just pure pain.

"Oh Alex! Why can't you be as good as your brother? Why can't you do this? Why can't you do that?" they would say.

I don't know why I'm not as good as my perfect older brother. Everyone just loves him. Why? Because he's talented, good looking, and brave. They don't know anything. He's a jerk to me! He always rubs it in that I'm not as good as him!

"Why can't I be just like him?" I whispered to myself, as I fell asleep.
