The runaway.

They argued a lot. It was never like this before.  I didn’t like it. They were always telling her no.  She would get angry when they said no. Why can’t they just say yes and then she wouldn't get mad?I was bored.  She was out a lot. I was allowed to go to my cousins and stay for a week. I was glad to go. I was just enjoying my stay when I saw my Aunt on the phone. Something was wrong. My Mom needed to speak to me. ...more

The argument.

We only ever had one argument. This one argument lasted a long, silent, awful while.I believe she was spreading her wings, leaving the co-dependent relationship we shared.Hindsight is a beautiful thing...so is maturity.She dared to have a boyfriend. A boyfriend. It occurred to me, their relationship became more important to her than ours.It didn’t occur to me, my large social circle was becoming more important to me than our relationship. She ratted me out!   RATTED.  ME.  OUT....more

The team.

She lived vicariously through my post secondary education.  She helped me move into my first apartment.In my absence, she enjoyed short sheeting my bed, putting lampshades on upside down and removing labels.  We always made everything fun for each other.     My first day there alone, I felt her love with each silly thing I discovered. Her regular letters helped stifle any homesickness.  ...more

The empowerment.

She is looking at me again.I pretend to be oblivious to her staring.I know what she wants.  Her desire makes me automatically reject her.The longer I ignore her, the greater the impact. She will ask eventually....I anticipate it with a ballooning ego. In fact, I kind of want her to ask, in a smug kind of a way.  It gives me power.I only know this power when I am with her. I am learning I have control over this power more and more.   ...more
