It’s early morning, the sun is slowly making it’s way into it’s place high in the sky. I love the morning here, so quiet almost as peaceful as back home. Even with the sound of the ocean waves and the wind all through the trees it feels still, trapping me in the illusion of never passing time.
It’s the best time to go to my favorite spot and read.
I round the corner with my head down, stopping as soon as I see my sister Alley sitting there. Her eyes are red the corners of her mouth are pulled all the way down and I hate it when she’s not smiling, even though it’s something she seems to do less and less these days.
“What’s going on Alley.” I ask taking a seat beside her.
She sniffles before raising her eyes to meet mine, “I’m in big trouble Lulu.” She sounds so sad and broken, nothing like the girl I’ve known my whole life. “I’m pregnant.”
