"Dad, where are we going?" I asked
"We're going to the cabin your Aunt Rachel left for us", my dad answered
"Aw c'mon dad, why are going there for summer vacation, why not our summer house in Florida?"
"Monica, we discussed this. You know your mother is looking forward to this trip, so do it for her", her dad answered
"Yea okay", I mumbled as I walked out of the room
I headed toward my room, I noticed the door opened.
Inside, my 9-year-old sister, Whisper was playing with my clothes
"What are you doing?! You're not allowed in my room!!"
"I think I lost something in here," she said while she was still searching through my stuff
"Yeah right," I said as I rolled my eyes
"Please?" she asked as she stared at me with those big crystal blue eyes, "I really think I lost something"
Everyone is always fooled with her big innocent-like eyes, she had a face that made her look like an angel. 9-years-old,with a pale complexion, light-curly, gentle blond hair and a fake sweet-like personality, she could win anyone over.
Unlike me. I'm 17-years-old,the same complexion, only with black glossy hair and sharp green eyes. When compared to her, people usually confuses me for a foster child.
"What did you lose here anyway?" I asked, exasperated
"I lost my necklace that grandma gave me last Christmas." she said, as tears came to her eyes.
I stared at her
What?! she's still thinking about Grandma Jenny? I thought
Grandma Jenny was cool and realistic, but she's been dead for 2 years and Whisper still won't let go of her, but I couldn’t really blame her---after all she was Whisper's favorite grandma. People sometimes asked if I missed her too. And I replied to all of them my best answer "no"
It wasn’t like I hated her, nope in fact I wanted to get along with her. I mean what kind of person, doesn’t like their own grandma?!
It seems like she pushes me away but, keeps Whisper close.....
"I found it!!!" Whisper exclaimed, interrupting me from my thoughts
She dangled the necklace in front of me. The amulet glowed in her hand.
"I finally found it!!!!! Thank you Monica" She said as she walked out of the door
I looked at the mess on the floor
"Hey!! Wait a minute!! Aren't you going to clean up this mess up!?
"You better clean up, before dad sees this " she said, laughing
"You little brat!!" I growled
She laughed and skipped out into the hallway
"What an evil little bitch" I thought as I started cleaning up
