2. The Beginning

Anthony is my 15 year old little brother, he is 5'10 athletic build and a major nerd. He sits in his room all day and plays video games with his friends from school, and when he's not playing games he is watching gaming videos on Youtube. 

"Anthony Brooks! You have 10 seconds to get off your game and come eat your dinner!" My father continues to yell at the empty staircase. 

We hear his bedroom door open and shut, then his footsteps patter down the stairs. 

Headphones still on his head with tablet in hand, Tony looks up at us waiting for him to join us at the table for dinner.

"Sorry guys, I had to beat the boss in my game, it was a real doozy, the XP I got out of it though! I leveled up like three times!" Tony says in apology as we all stare at him like he is speaking a different language. 

"Just sit down and eat your dinner honey." My Mother replies looking at him with concern in her eyes. 

Tony sits down and we all dig in. Mac'n cheese just happens to be my all time favorite especially the kind my mother makes from scratch. Mom and Dad take turns cooking, and Dad makes this amazing pot roast where the meat just melts in your mouth, it is to die for. 

After dinner Tony goes back up to his room and I return to the deck to do some thinking. 

College, I think to myself, Just a few more weeks and I will be heading to a different state, meeting new people, and earning my degree. This is insane! Where does time go? I feel like I have so much more to do before I jump right back into getting an education and starting my future! I want to travel, and explore, and be a little crazy, like a normal 18 year old. Life just seems to be flying by. I'm going to miss everyone, my parents, my little brother, my boyfriend and I are even going to different colleges. I just don't know how all this is going to turn out. 

My Mother interrupts my thinking and steps out onto the porch. "Penny for your thoughts?" She asks with a smirk.

"I'm just thinking about how crazy it is going away to college, yeah I know I will be back for Thanksgiving and then Christmas break but I have never been away from everyone for so long. And Jeremy and I, I want us to work and I think we will, but I'm still scared we won't. We don't know the future, no one does. He could meet someone, even I could meet someone. The only difference is for right now, I know that I don't want anyone else, I can see spending forever with him, I don't know if he feels the same, I don't know what he's thinking. I know this is a lot to process right now and too much to worry about, but I just want things to go as I am planning for them to go." I reply. 

Mom looks at me with a bit of a smirk on her face and shakes her head.

"Goodness dear that is quite a lot to think about, but I know exactly what you are going through. I remember leaving for college and leaving everything behind because I moved away for good, it wasn't temporary like for you." She tries to console me.

"I know and I can't believe you went through with it. Finding an apartment and balancing school and work at this age? I'm getting an upset stomach just thinking about it." I reply. 

She chuckles and pats my shoulder 

"Kids now a days sure do have it easier, but try not to worry about it Ashley, think of all the fun memories you will be making, and the new friends that you will never forget. I promise you it's not as scary as it seems." Mom says as she gives me a hug and goes back inside to let me think some more.
