The Brother Who Ruined My Family

Extracts from this document...


THE BROTHER WHO RUINED MY FAMILY The murky depths of cloud filled streets, the huge chimneys towering over the small insignificant people below. How I remember feeling so small, so minute, with all the buildings, the factories and the big people covering as far as my small eyes could see. How I longed to be big and tall, so I could see through the eyes of one of them, the people who rule my world. The way I remember it is completely different to how I see it now. The roads are still busy but as before people wandered the streets, now cars rule the world. As I longed previously to be big and tall now all want is to say, "I'm sorry". As far back as I can remember I have lived in this same house, it's small garden, the two bedrooms, a living room, a kitchen and a bathroom. It wasn't much but it was mine, all mine. One day when I was three I was playing happily in the lounge with my toys when mum and dad came in and told me something that was going to change me forever. I was only three I thought, I wasn't ready to give up all the attention, all the love; I didn't want to act more grown up, I did not want to share my toys, my room and especially not my parents with someone else. ...read more.


Michael's first birthday was on 29th April; he was oblivious to how much effort mum and dad had put into his first birthday that I was almost regretting what I had done. For the past year I tried every way I could think of to change his sweet innocent smile, his loveable face and his ability to keep mum and dad to himself. Whatever I tried it was never enough, I always failed and ended up getting into lots of trouble. For his birthday we got him a small tricycle that he could ride around on in the garden. As usual I got very jealous of his present and wanted to know why I didn't get one when I was his age. As normal mum set me straight, but I was still not happy with her answer. As the day went on I devised a plan that would get my revenge on him on him. The day came when my plan was to happen. I had already loosened the wheel so it would fall off when he was riding it. Mum and dad were watching television in the lounge while I watched Michael ride his bike. As usual I lost interest in watching him and went off to play in the front garden, leaving him cycling round on a bomb waiting to explode! ...read more.


Before we went, we stopped off at the park and sat down for a rest. Michael and I went to play on the swings and the monkey bars while mum went to get us a drink. Whilst playing happily, I left Michael to go and help mum with the drinks, but when we turned around Michael had disappeared... Ever since that tragic day I have wished that I had not been so horrible to him. Every day I hope that the police will find him or someone might call us and say that he's okay. For the rest of my life I will always look for him no matter what. Mum and dad were devastated; they took the disappearance even worse than I did and have practically given up all hope of seeing him again. I try to encourage them as much as I can, but I can't give them back their youngest son. I never told them about what I was going to do that day as it would break their hearts to know that I hated Michael so much. Now, I have to live with that thought, at the back of my mind day in, day out for the rest of my life.
