New town, again! Since my dad is in the military, we move a lot. But apparently, we are staying this time. My stepmom is expecting my second brother and wants to stay near her parents this time, since she has two baby boys to look after and will need their help. She does not have three kids apparently; I am not included because I have another mother. But that’s the best part of moving back here, it is back to the town my mom and dad grew up. Maybe I can start seeing her now. I am eleven and can go see her my self if needed.
Ok things have happened, awful things, the years went by and I found my role in the world, being a wallflower at school, around town and at home. Being invisible is hard though, everybody are always trying to beat me down. But I will always have that fighting spirit inside me, that wants to rebel. Rebel against my dad, stepmom or bullies. Some fights I just can´t surrender, not when defending someone weaker than me. They are all bullies and try to walk over people they think is less than them. I can take it if they only target me, but not others. Even if it would be defending a stranger, it is the right thing to do. This made it hard to stay invisible, people saw and wants to punish me more.
My father and stepmother cared less and less over the years and soon I became the wallflower I been craving to be. Since an accident happened and later, many years of fighting, my dad started living as if I don´t exist at all. My father, stepmom, and three brothers would go on vacation without me, not informing me of leaving and not keeping in-touch while gone to inform me of their return. I could find myself, home alone after school only for it to stay that way for a while.
I had to find work at a café then to make money for food and bills. When my family would just up and leave me with nothing, not even a note, I had no other choice.
Authors note: This is my first attempt at writing a book. So feel free to give me comments on what I can improve.
