If you actually think about every book or movie you’ve ever read or seen, you’d realized that they’re all cliché. It’s always the Bad Boy and the Good Girl, or the girl falling in love with her kidnapper. I hate them, yet I still read and watch them. Why? Because my family has what I call "The Cliché Curse."
Pretty much everyone in my family has ended up together in some cliché way. It’s been like that for as long as anyone can remember.
Take my great-great-great grandparents for example. My great-great-great grandfather kidnapped my great-great-great grandmother. They fell in love and had my great-great grandparents. They were the bad boy and nerd.
My great grandparents were enemies that ended up falling in love.
My grandpa was a famous actor that fell for the small town girl.
And then there were my parents. Oh my gosh. The worst of it all. My mother’s best friend told her to throw an apple across the cafeteria. Whoever it hit was her true love. Then it hit the person she despised the most. And where did that get her? With me and my two older brothers.
Both of my brothers fell in love in cliché ways.
Very annoying. But now do you see my point? It’s a cliché curse! The reason I read cliché crap is to learn how to avoid it. I will be the one to break the damn cliché curse. Hopefully I can. Hopefully I won’t be its next victim.
