The letter to my brother.

Dear Brother,

This has been a long month. I struggle, more and more, everyday to find reasons for me to get up from bed and drag myself to school. Everything is either blatant or plain. But there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. It’s a girl. Whenever I’m looking at her, she is smiling. Her smile, it’s the most beautiful one I have ever seen. I hope I can bring her home one day to show you!..?

Dear Brother,

I think they are back. They are! But how… I mean, if they are back, then what about you? What’s the meaning of this? I hope I’m wrong, brother, I really hope!

Dear Brother,

I’m going. I’m going to face them. I won’t..can’t run anymore. Stay by my side, Brother!

Dear brother,

You won’t believe What I did! I beat them brother, I did! You will be proud of me. But I didn’t do it alone, My friends were, all of them! They helped me beat him. Him. The big one who wasn’t there last time. He might be the leader. I can finally have some peaceful night sleep. It’s all thanks to you. I learned by seeing what you did. Thank you, brother, for always leading me to the pasture!

Dear Brother,

Why? Why is everyone ignoring me again? They are my friends, right? But why then? She won’t look at me anymore. She is gone brother, she is with someone else. I’m alone again.

Dear Brother,

I thought life was fair, there was always light at the end of the tunnel. At least, that’s what you told me. Why brother? Why? Why did you lie to me? I am all alone in the curb outside the school. Everyone is in their home, having dinner with their family. She is probably in a diner, laughing with him. I saved the world, not him! Anyway, they all act like it’s a big nothing! I saved the world, brother, I did! Just like you! I can’t take this anymore brother, I can’t. I can’t be alone for any longer. I’m coming to see you, it’s the only way. Wait for me in the train stop, will you? Because I’m scared of the darkness! My five minutes are finally over…?
