Family Matters

My mum, my younger brother and myself sat down to our dining table to eat dinner. I’d been having a really bad day I had failed two tests and I had been in a fight with a boy in my year. “mum did you hear what Reggie did today?” Ronnie asked. “no what is it honey?” my mum asked. Ronnie’s eyes catch mine and he grins evilly. “don’t you dare!” I warn him. My mum looks at me confused. “Reggie was fighting with a boy today.” Ronnie says grinning. My mother gasps. I stand up and shout “how dare you get wrapped up in my life it has nothing to do with you I wish you weren’t my brother!” “Reginald Joseph Dawes Do not speak to your brother like that!” My mother Bellows. I then storm upstairs and into my bedroom and I slam the door. “its not fair, Ronnie is such a snitch.” I moan. I jump into my bed and I fall asleep.

The next day I wake up and put on a grey jogging suit and I go down stairs for breakfast. “hey mom I’m going into town today, do you need anything?” I ask my mom as I head towards the toaster. “no I don’t think so but can you take your brother with you.?” My mom asks before biting into a slice of toast. “ugh, fine.” I sigh. “don’t speak to me like that.” My mum ordered. I make my toast and I go to the dining table and eat it. My brother comes down in a tracksuit and a baseball cap. “ready to go Reggie?” “yeah” I say washing down the last of my toast with orange juice. We walk out the door and Ronnie sticks his foot out making me fall down the stairs. “I really wish you weren’t my brother!” I snap at him as our mum comes down the hall. “I heard the bang what happened?” she asks. Ronnie covers my mouth and says “nothing mum, Reggie fell down the stairs.” “please be careful” my mum says and shuts the door. “I hate you” I tell Ronnie as I punch him in the arm.

We get the bus into town and begin walking to where we are meeting my friends jax and brock. We get to the meeting spot and see them. “hey” we all say together. “sup” Ronnie says tilting his head up. We go to a few shops then we go to McDonald’s for our lunch. “I want to go to burger king.”  Ronnie moans. “tough luck we are at McDonald’s.” I snap at him. “I don’t want to eat here.” Ronnie says. “go somewhere else then!” I shout at him. Everyone looks at me then looks away. We sit down to eat and Ronnie asks “did you know guys that Reggie still wets the bed?” and he laughs so does Jax and Brock. “I do not so shut up Ronnie” I say. “did you know Ronnie still sleeps with the light on because he is scared of the dark?” Ronnie then asks making him and my friends giggle. “I hate you Ronnie now shut up!” I snap at him. Ronnie then kicks me from under the table. “what was that for?” I ask. “what?” Ronnie asks acting innocently. “I wish you weren’t my brother!” I snap at him. “hey that’s not very nice.” Jax and Brock say. “whatever” I say and get up and leave Ronnie follows and we go home.

When we arrive home I shut the door and we walk into the Livingroom where mum has left a note saying she will be back late. “REGGIE HELP THERES BLOOD, OH GOD ITS MUM REGGIE IN THE KITCHEN.” Ronnie screams. I run into the kitchen panicking when Ronnie jumps out and shouts “boo ha-ha tricked you!”. “that’s not funny Ronnie oh my gosh never joke about that. Why have do you have to be so childish I actually hate you sometimes.” I snap at him. “you really hate me?” he asks. “YES” I shout out of anger. “Fine” Ronnie says and slams the front door as he leaves. “Ronnie I didn’t mean it” I shout as I leave the house and see Ronnie get hit by a van. “NOOOO!” I scream. And reach for my phone I call 999 and phone an ambulance. The Paramedics lift Ronnie onto a stretcher and I call my mum. She comes and picks me up and we head straight to the hospital. Once we get to the hospital we get told to wait in the waiting room. I pace up and down the room knowing this was my fault if only I hadn’t said that I hated him. Around 2 hours later the doctor comes and he says excuse me for what I’m about to say. “your son was dead when he reached the hospital the van killed him on impact it crushed his skull and his major organs.” My mum collapses to her knees and starts crying uncontrollably. “I’m sorry Ronnie I love you more than life itself I don’t hate you, you were honestly an amazing brother your were funny and awesome yeah you were annoying but I’m going to miss your bro rest easy.” I think to myself.
