The Curse of the Twenties.
It’s real... the name might be something I fabricated so I can actually talk about it, but trust me when I say it’s real.
What is it? Let me explain.
The Curse, as we shall shorten it down to, is a curse that affects only the females of my family – my dad’s side of the family to be exact. Something... ‘bad’, will always occur when the female is in her early twenties, hence the name. I know, I’m not really creative but I’m shortening it down to The Curse so in the end it doesn’t matter anyway.
So, this ‘curse’. I never got to know the specifics about what happened to the females further down the line of my family tree, but every female I have known in my dad’s side of the family has something ‘bad’ happen to them.
Ripping their newborn family apart.
Falling into the hands of heavy drugs and not coming out of it.
Pneumonia that led to disability.
This is hard for me to write, because I knew I was of age for The Curse to take place. I won’t tell you my name just yet... I’ll leave that for the end, but for now you can call me VJ , and this is my story of my family curse.
This is a true story.
