You & Me Against the World

Esteban only has one person who truly cares for him and that's his Tia (aunt) , but that changes when he gets sent off to live with his dad. He soon meets a troubled girl who turns out to play a big role in his life. They go through some life changing events together and begin to grow feelings in matter of days, but the problem is ... Will they make it through the obstacles that come their way.


1. Just the beginning.


"Aye homie where you from?"  Is what I heard when I was walking home at 3 in the morning. 

"I ain't from here, I just came to stay with my Tia for the summer." I said with a blank face trying not to show fear even though I was a little scared because there was about five to ten fools there, but I wasn't quite sure.
"Whatchu bang bro?" The tallest one said.

He seemed to be their leader cause he did most of the talking and told them other punks what to do. 

"Well from time to time I bang your sister and your momma."  I said 

Sometimes I'm somewhat of a smart ass and it kind of gets me into trouble.

"Aw hell no! Get that motherfucker!" He shouted out to the rest of the guys . 

Then all of a sudden I know there's like eight dudes surrounding me all I know is that I'm not gonna go down like a little bitch so I gotta fight back. 

I'm being held against my will getting the shit beat out of me.  

Then the tallest one says, "that's enough, we'll just leave him here and take his phone so he can't get ahold of anyone. We're just gonna let him suffer."

After he said that I blacked out from losing so much blood. One of the guys stabbed me right above my left hip.  They also broke three of my ribs on the left side . They broke my nose and dislocated my right shoulder. I don't even know how I got to the hospital.

My Tia came to see me in the hospital. 

"Ay mijo. Como estas?"

"I'm fine Tia just a little pain here and there don't worry about me." 

"Como que 'don't worry about me' ?! How could I not worry about you? You were just jumped and you're in pretty bad condition!"

"Te dije que estoy bien Tia! Calmate por  favor." I slightly raised my voice at her for the first time as I said that.

"Okay, okay Esteban ."  She finally gave in.

"Have you called my mom?" I asked kind of worried because I didn't want my mom to find out about this or she'll send me to live with my dad and I hate that bastard after walking out on us when I was just a baby. Now he has a whole other family. And he's tried to make it up to me but there ain't no way in hell ill forgive him for leaving me and my moms all alone...

"I'm sorry Esteban, but I had to. I had to let her know." She said in a soft tone hoping that I wouldn't get upset.

"Tia! Great" I said sarcastically, "now she's going to send me to my dad in California! Does she want to talk to me? Or at least see how I'm doing?" 

"No, she just said that she's packing the rest of your belongings and sending them to your dad's house and once you get out of the hospital you're going straight to California..."

"Dang." I looked down and asked, "Tia, do you at least love me? 'Cause my mom doesn't..."

She grabbed my chin with her right hand and lifted my head so that my eyes met hers. 

And she told me, "Esteban, I'll always love you no matter the situation. If you killed a man I'd go to court and testify you're  innocent right after I dumped the body. I'd give you the clothes on my back if you needed them.. Esteban I love you like you are my own son."

I practically was her son. I went to stay with her every summer since the age of three because my mom claimed that I am a devil child and she cannot control me so she sent me with my Tia who had six kids, they're all grown up now and have pretty decent lives, so my Tia has the time and the money to care for me. 

After hearing what she said I smiled a little .

"Thank you for everything you've done for me. Te quiero mucho." I told her then closed my eyes to get some rest because before I know it I'm going to be on an airplane heading to the San Francisco airport.
