Hello everyone! I’m trying to get back to an updating schedule and I’m trying new things too. So, here’s a fiction piece with the voice of someone that’s familiar and that’s Cassandra. It’s a bit of a spoiler since I haven’t revealed that she doesn’t have a good relationship with her mom yet, so here’s something to let you know why her relationship with Daniel and her uncle is so close.
In this piece Cass is around 18 years old.
This piece is entitled How is it Like? Enjoy!
You know there are times where I wonder how it’s like to be welcomed when you come home. You know with the whole “hey welcome home honey!” or “Hi honey how are you?” instead of always coming home to someone who doesn’t even care anymore since I grew up. I’ve often wondered what it’s like to actually like your mom to believe that she’s in your corner. I can’t even think about the last time that happened to me. I’ve never had that. I would never know how that feels, until I become a mom myself for now I don’t even know how that feels.
How is it like? To have a mom that doesn’t treat you like a punching bag? That doesn’t try to pair you and your sibling against each other.
Is it nice?
Does it feel good?
I always see people talk about how they would do anything for their mother. How their mother is their best friend, the one person that they talk to about everything when I can’t even be in the same room with mine without her thinking that I’m in some weird competition with her. Is that possible?
Can you actually like your mother without imagining life without her? I can’t remember the last time I was actually happy to be around my mother. Is that even possible? I can’t even think about the time I was actually happy to see her. I am so ready to just pack up everything and leave. She has my brother, she doesn’t need me. I get so tired of her putting us against each other when he is so uncomfortable with it. Is there a way to like your mom?
Is that possible?
If so, can you tell me how?
Can you tell me how is it like to go home and be welcomed by your mom?
How it is like?
I might do this more often, this felt nice.
Well until next Monday!
