I was born to a wealthy family. My mother died when I was 2 years old,And its was just me and my father.But atleast I thought it was until a woman entered the house and addressed herself as Claire and told she was my new mother. She was very beautiful and gorgeous. No wonder my father fell for her in first place. But in contrast with her beautiful appearance, she was rather very rude. But that was just towards me. She had her own children who were twins and was my age. The son wasn’t with us, as he went with his father when their parents got separated. But even though he wasn’t living with us he was the closest to me. We lived like that for around 2 years but then my father died, it was one of the most depressing moment in my life as I knew that ones he goes I have no one left with me. That lady who is so called my mother only showed love towards me so that she can live in the luxurious house. To be frank she never loved me or my father, what she loved was the rich life of us. But because my father was a humble man he never thought he was being played by her. She was never sad that father died but was rather happy that she gets to have all the luxury to herself.From then on, I was always in the room. I got my food brought by the maid so that I didn't had to eat in the dining area with themIt got so much worse as she brought men to the house within just weeks after father died.I couldn't tolerate it anymore and I left the house. soon I was  left in the street all alone. But just then a kind lady named Elissa saw me and asked whether I was all alone, In which I replied yes. she took me home without any thoughts and  I was happy that I had someone who loved me.

Life went on and soon I reached high school. I met Rachel and we became best friends.It was just me and Rachel until Steph and Alex entered the class and all four of us became bestfriends.We were all very happy until one day I overheard the boys talking about me. That's when I found about the fact they both loved me and I was literally shocked. I never expected something like that would even happen. But anyway, I acted like I never heard anything and moved on. But it started to get a little uncomfortable as I knew both loved me and soon would ask me to choose between them.I talked to both of them together and told them that I knew they loved me all along and was pretending not do so.I also told them that Elissa was not my mother and explained who I really was because I knew that it would not be good to be in a relationship while hiding the truth about myself.But to my shock they both didin't care who I was and still wanted to be with me.Now I am again left to choose between them.But the choosing did not last long as I came to know Steph  knew who I really was all this while  even before I told him andloved me for only the money. I was very angry at first but then felt that it was for the best. I no longer had to chose one and was very happy that no one’s feelings was heart by me. But this is all the past and now I am living with Elissa and Alex happily.By the way I never moved back to my house ,I just left them to be.
