So it’s true that you guys are d@t!ng? She asked looking angry.
I wanted to speak up but couldn’t find the right words to say.
Uh..I..we…em..Amelia it’s not what you think, I replied feeling guilty.
So we have become so distanced that you can’t tell me anything any longer? Am still your little sister you no, she said amidst tears and rushed out.
I wanted to run after her , the guilt is killing me but Liza prevented me from leaving by blocking me.
“What is it?” I asked angrily.
“You can’t go after her Jason” , she replied.
“You wanted me to help you and I’ve agreed so you can’t go after her okay?” She added but I ignored her.
I pushed her out of my way ignoring the wires fixed to my b©dy, I wanted to go but the wires prevented me so I angrily pu-ll-ed them off me and reached the door and was about to open it when she said something.
You’ll only end up falling de-eply in love with her and it will hurt you both at last.
I turned to face her and I could see tears forming in her eyes . I don’t un-derstand why she’s in tears but she’s the least of my concern.
I finally opened the door and was about looking for her before mom showed up.
“Son?” Why are you up now? She asked with concern.
“Have you seen Amelia?” I asked ignoring her question.
“Yes , she headed that way , she replied pointing at the right hand side of the hospital.
Chat Martinmartino on zero eight one eighty thirty fourteen twenty one to be added to his whatsapp group.
“OK, mom thanks, I replied and wanted going after Amelia but she held me and dragged me back to my ward.
“Are you okay?” She asked tou-ching my fore head.
“Yes mom, I replied still feeling uneasy.
“Your dad will soon be here” , Amelia will stay with them until she decides to get back home okay? Mom said and I nodded.
“Good morning ma’am” , Liza greeted and that’s when I realized she was still in the ward.
“Oh morning Liza , how are your parents?” She inquired.
“Quite good , she replied and excused
Throu-ghout my stay at the hospital, I didn’t see Amelia again.
I got discharged and went home with mom and dad.
“I couldn’t even st©p thinking about Amelia, every second, every minute I think about her, I was gradually going crazy. It’s high time I tell mom and dad so they’ll no what to do with me.
Hmm I hate the turn of things a lot . I can’t deny my strong feelings for Jason but I’ve always known he has feelings for Amelia even before he found out himself.
The way he treats her, it was more than a brotherly love and feelings so I looked into it and confirmed my suspicion.
The way Jason is still behaving, it will be quite ha-rd to let go of his feelings but the worse of it all is Amelia.
She, the fact that she also likes him…what am I saying…she loves him and she alre-ady told me about it but I thought she was kidding and now everything is confirmed.
Jason doesn’t know about how Amelia feels and Amelia doesn’t know how Jason feels.
I just feel real pity for both of them , I love Jason but at the same time love Amelia…. I think its best I let Amelia know about Jason’s feelings and maybe they can resolve it .
I’ve made up my mind to tell them once they come back from work today. I’ll wait for them and talk to them no matter the time they get back.
I showered and stayed at home since the doctor said I should rest.
I started pla-ying video games to get my mind off Amelia, I pla-yed for hours but still couldn’t concentrate, the fact that she was angry niggard badly at me.
I st©pped with the video game stuff and decided to sleep – at least if I sleep I’ll st©p thinking about her.
I l@ydown on my be-d and closed my eyes ti-ghtly to sleep off fast but sleep didn’t come. I turned and continued turning until it finally c@m£.
I opened my eyes and everywhere was dim , it’s evening alre-ady.
I got off my be-d and checked the time to find out it was 7 in the evening.
I went down and had some cookies with fruits jui-ces. After eating I went back up to have a warm bath and after everything I c@m£ down to wait for them. While waiting in the couch I dozed off again.
I felt someone ru-bbing my cheeks and I fled my eye lid open to see mom starring back at me.
“Mom?” I called and checked the time to discover it was 8:30 pm.
“You c@m£ back early, I said cleaning my face with my palm.”
“Yes darling, I had to, for you , she replied and sat down beside me on the couch.”
“So honey, why are you not in be-d?”she asked holding my hand.
“Em..I actually wanted to tell you guys something – you and dad, I replied and she smiled.”
“Alright baby , I’ll go freshen up while we wait for your dad okay?” She said and I nodded. She left me to her room and few minutes later dad c@m£ home.
“Dad? “I called standing to give him a hvg.
“Oh my boy!” He replied and held my back.
“How are you doing?” He further asked.
“I’m okay dad ,but actually wanted to tell you and mom something really important.”
“Oh! about your school?” He asked.
“No dad , not school.”
“Your mom is back right? “He asked and I nodded, then he went up stairs and my mom c@m£ down later to set the dinning to her taste.
I was discussing with mom on other things while waiting for dad to come down. He c@m£ down few minutes later and I cleared my throat and started.
“Em ,mom , dad , I think I’m possessed.”
“I nee-d prayers, I further added.”
“What is it son?” Dad asked.
“I think I’m in love with Amelia, I blurted stupidly and they both starred at their self.”
“What?” What are you trying to say? My mom further asked.
I am in love with Amelia mom and its not just a brotherly love, I added and they kept starring at me quietly.
“Mom, dad ,why aren’t you saying anything? “you’re scaring me ,I added feeling so scared of the next thing.
After a long silence from them my mom finally said something.
“Honey come here, she said stretching her hand towards me.
I stood up and went to sit with her not un-derstanding the situation at hand.
Em are you sure about what you just said, she asked c@r£ss!ngmy hand.
“Yes mom, I’m hundred percent sure of my feelings, I’ve been feeling this way for a while now, I added and my dad sighed heavily.”
“Can you help me? I further asked and my mom smiled.”
I can’t honey , but you can help yourself, she replied ma-king me really confused.
“Mom help myself? If I had a way I couldn’t have even informed you guys , I replied soberly. ”
My mom looked at my dad and he nodded his head and she faced me properly.
“Listen Jason, listen to everything I want to tell you and after that you’ll figure out how to help yourself, she said and cleared her throat while I waited for what she wanted to say. ”
It happened long along when you were just 6 years ago Jason , Jason’s mom began.
Your dad took you for picnic and there you saw a little girl pla-ying alone, you felt attra-cted to her and you left your dad to go talk to her and ask her why she’s alone.
You talked to her and found out that she is an orphan living with her adopted mom who blearily fed for them. From there you had a liking to the girl despite her poor dressing and all.
The next day you saw her again and from there you two bec@m£ so close and you brou-ght her home as your new friend.
You guys will always be together pla-ying with your toys and all and from there you liked you despite your little age. We took it as a joke tho.
Days and weeks pas-sed by and you two bec@m£ fond of yourself .
One certain time we were heading to your dad’s company together and we saw her crossing the road in tears. We st©pped by the road side and you ran out of the car to go meet her at the other end but unfortunately we didn’t notice a bike rider and he ran into you.
You hit your head ha-rd of the road and you were rushed to a nearby hospital and we were informed your accident affected your memory a little and you forgot a lot of things including the little girl. We later found the little girl and found out the reason for her tears , her adopted mother had died and no one refused taking her in so we took her in.
“What??? Jason shouted and faced his parents.”
What are you trying to…
Just listen Jason, his dad cut him in.
We took you to los Angeles and you grow up there while we took the little girl in and adopted her as our daughter, seeing the way you liked her. we didn’t think twice before doing it as it might help in bringing back all your memories.
So you stayed in los Angeles for a long time and by the time you c@m£ back we told you that you had a kid sister and you were so happy and it all started again , the pla-ying and all.
Well we didn’t think history will repeat itself again but I’m quite sure the little girl on her own didn’t recognize you either when you c@m£ back, she concluded.
So the little girl is Amelia, Jason’s dad added.
Jason opened his mouth wi-de in shock and couldn’t believe his ears.
“So? So you mean its alright to be in love with Amelia cause she’s not my birth sister? “He asked and the mom shrugged.
Well if you ask me I’ll say its your “fate”, she replied.
He stood up and faced his parents properly.
“Thanks mom, thanks dad , I think I know what to do , he replied and the mom smiled.”
After the discussion with mom and dad , I couldn’t wait for Amelia to come back so I went back to the beach to look for her.
I got there and she was with her friends, she saw me and throw her eyes away. Liza walked up to me surprised that I returned.
“Why are you here?” She questioned.
“Can you tell Amelia to meet me at the back of the eatery?” I requested ignoring her question.
“Are you sure about that?”
“Yea I’m sure Liza , thanks for everything anyways I won’t be nee-ding your help anymore, I added and she starred at me surprised.”
“Are you sure you are alright?” she asked again and I frowned.
Tell her to meet me now ,it’s urgent , I “replied and left.”
I went to the back of the eatery and waited. People weren’t ha-rd ly go there so I figured out it’s the best place to meet her.
I waited a few more minutes and saw her dragging her legs towards me with her hands at akimbo.
She got to where I was and didn’t look at me.
“What do you want? “She asked coldly but I kept mute course I suddenly started recalling something from the past.
“Jason what do you want? “Aren’t you supposed to be home? She asked again and I hvgged her to her surprise.
I”‘m sorry,I apologized cutting her off from what she wanted to say.
For my recent behaviours , I’m so sorry, I apologized again hvgging her ti-ghtly.
She dis£ngaged after a while with a confused and and t©uçhed my fore head.
I think you’re running a fever, she said looking worried.
“Really? “I asked also tou-ching my fore head.
Boom! I was just joking , she half yelled and started laughing.
I got you on that one, she myadded still laughing.
I smiled. So you have forgiven ? I asked and she nodded.
“You no I can’t be angry at you for long, but next time tell me everything bothering okay?$ I don’t want to be left out, she said and I pu-ll-ed her closer to me.
“From now on Amelia, you won’t be left out in whatsoever I’m doing okay? “I said and she nodded smiling.
And there is one more thing I want so badly from you , I added.
“And what’s that? “She asked giggling.
“A k!ss, I replied and she frowned.”
“Come on J ,be more serious alright, she replied.”
“I’m serious, I replied and she pu-ll-ed herself away from me.”
“St©p joking J, you no its not possible we are…
“Not siblings, I replied before she could complete her statement.”
Her eyes wi-de-ned and she looked at me.
“Seriously? How? ”
Before I tell you anything honey , I want a k!ssfirst , I replied and pu-ll-ed her to me again but she kept blinking her eyes.
“Will you close it? “I said jokingly and she smiled.
J…. She was about to say but I k!$$£d her but the surprising thing is that she reciprocated almost immediately and it lasted for a while.
I explained everything to her after a while . she was sad because she’s not dad and mom’s real daughter but she was happy she had us as a family.
She broke up with Jack after a while and we traveled to Los Angeles together to avoid question from people.
Well I got to spend the rest of my life with Amelia not just as my sister but as something else I wanted.
Fate works in mysterious ways.
