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.


2. It's hard to say good-bye.


"So do you have everything, Esteban? If you need anything, let me know before we go to the airport." My Tia said as she was cleaning up around the house.

"No, I don't need anything." I said sounding gloomy. 

I was getting depressed just thinking about living with a man I didn't even know. A man who is supposably my father... I don't even consider him a man after walking out on my mom and I after I was born. My mom told me that he held me once, for about ten seconds , and then put me back down and said, "I can't. I'm not ready for a kid." He kissed me on the forehead then my mom and walked out of the room. And he was never seen again.

For a while my mom use to say,  "Esteban it's all your fault that your dad walked out on us. If you weren't born he'd still be here, and him and I would be happy. Especially with out you."

Those words stung every time I heard them. And my heart broke more and more every time I heard them. I'm pretty sure after a while my heart was like the grinch's... All small and what not. I was starting to think that I wasn't going to have a heart pretty soon.

My Tia interrupted my thinking by saying that it was almost time to go.
She said, "while you were day dreaming I put everything in the trunk."

"Oh okay... Uh... Tia ?" I asked.

"Yes?" She questioned.

"Will you call me everyday? So I know that there is someone who still cares about me?" I looked up as I said this and I even started tearing up a little.

Then she sat on the sofa right next to me and held me and said, 
"listen, I will call every morning to wake you up and every night to tell you goodnight and I love you." She smiled at me. 

And her smile was just so bright and warming which made me smile at the thought that there was still somebody who cared.. No matter what I did.

"I love you, Tia." I said to her.

"I love you too . Don't you forget that." She said sincerely.

As I started to get up she pulled me back down and said, "wait! There's something I want you to have so in a way ill always be with you."

She went into her room and I followed her because I was so curious. She grabbed her jewelry box and searched for something. Then she pulled out a necklace. It was a cross. 

"Here " she said as she was putting it around my neck. "This was my mothers and I want you to have it. It means a lot to me and I trust that you'll take care of it."

"Oh no! I can't take this if it was your moms..." I told her.

"Just take it!" She yelled.

"No Tia!  I can't." I said.

"Te voy a chingar! Vas a ver!" She yelled at me.

"No vas hacer nada!" I said.

"Oh si!? She questioned me.

I backed up as she said that because she had this look in her eye. A look that said that she was gonna beat my ass.

Then she took off her sandal she was wearing and said, " te voy a pegar if you don't take the necklace!"

"Fine! Have it your way!" I gave in because I didn't want to get my ass whooped.

Then it was already time to leave. She took me to the airport and we said our last good byes. It was sad because I was leaving the only person that loves me way more than my mom....
