PAD Chapbook Challenge Day Nine: The Other (Family)


It Was Supposed To Be This Way

There are four of them
Loving father
Doting mother
Two perfect children
Two little girls
Or a girl and a boy
Depending on how the story goes
The children, five years apart
Moved south to a bigger home that held all four of them
They made new friends
They play sports
Perfect in every way
They were well-liked
They were popular
Everyone who knew them loved them
The older child is 25 now
The other almost 20
Back home visiting for the holidays and planning the next anniversary party for their parents
Who never broke apart
26 years in
Many bumps along the way
But they rarely fought, and he never strayed
It was supposed to be this way
