Growing up, I lived in a beautiful home. Every room was a different color with a different theme but they all harmonized perfectly together, just like my family. My father was your average hard working doctor. At the age of 25, he met my mother at college and together they created the perfect family years later. My oldest brother, Kage, is a 20 year old perfectionist. He followed every rule in the book and spent his whole life pleasing our parents. He hated anything that disrupted his self image, and maybe thats why he hated me.
I wasn't exactly the perfect daughter of the perfect family. I was human and made plenty of mistakes. One of my biggest flaws was that there was a part of me that couldnt be tamed, a burning fire that would burn and destroy anything in its ways.
"Enya!" My mother yelled from downstairs, "its time for dinner!".
I quickly rolled out of my bed and hustled across my wooden floor to my bathroom. In the mirror, my black curls hung loosely around my brown face. Light brown eyes stared back at me, studying my face and clothes to make sure I was presentable.
"Maybe if you stopped being such a mess, you wouldnt look like one." my brother Kage had said.
Quickly, I turned around in shock. "Why are you in here Kage?"
"Mother and Father might be patient but I'm not. She wont start dinner until everyone is there. So move." Kage turned around and headed downstairs.
I rolled my eyes and hurried down the stairs. On the way down I smelt the aroma of baked chicken and vegetables.
"There goes my beautiful son and daughter. Now we can finally eat!" My father said. He always was hungry, especially when it came to moms cooking. I mean who could blame him, my mom could cook a 5-star meal out of ramen noodles.
"Yes, honey. Say your grace first. Now, Enya as you know a special day is coming up."
"The princess finally turns into an adult." My brother sneered.
"Look Kage, I dont know what your prob-"
"Now now children, save the bickering for later. As I was saying, since you turn 18 this week Enya I wanted to do something special. Maybe even throw a party." my mother exclaimed.
"Hmph, no boys" my father grumbled in between bites.
"Hush, Joe. Now we'll have it all worked out, we just need you to go out for a few hours so we can set it up. Maybe go shopping with Jade for a few hours. "
Jade had been my bestfriend since we were born. Our successful friendship was inevitable as our parents had all grown up together. I guess for our sakes, we were just lucky we actually liked each other.
"Awww, thanks Mom. Sure we could take a shopping trip, maybe even get our nails done."
"Great, now that it's settled. You kids go get ready for school tomorrow."
