Bella and Amie have been best friends for years and have only gotten closer and closer despite everything that has happened. Bella: “Morning Amie, How are you feeling?” Amie :”Not bad but i feel off...like a strong craving.”
Amie: “I'm craving the orange candy where its sour at first and then really sweet and eventually gone.” Bella: “My Mom tells me that we can’t have too much or else it’ll be very bad for our health.” Amie: “I know but, I really love candy.” Bella’s mother walks in and greets Amie.
“You like candy?” kehlani says as she sits next to bella “Yes, it’s sweet and makes me feel happy when I'm feeling down.” I replied back “How much candy do you eat in a day?” Kehlani asks “About 3 or 4 bags a day” Amie responds proudly “That sounds like a lot, and that's very unhealthy for you.”
Kehlani pauses and continues, “Even though it’s a problem right now it can get worse.”“There is a problem out there in the world where too much of something can lead to addiction” Kehlani says “What’s that” Amie replies with “Addiction where you always crave for the stuff and feel like you constantly need it.” Kehlani says in serious tonen“Oh..well I don't feel like i always need it but I do always have a strong craving for it” Amie responds in protest “Just be careful and try to lessen the amount of candy you take in”
I leave Bella’s home and ride home with my mother. Her name is Aqua. With the conversation I had with Bella’s mom I decide to ask her a question “Mom, why don’t bella’s family eat so much candy ” Amie asks. She replied back, “because some families are different Amie.” Aqua responds then Amie asks one more question I’ve wanted to ask came up to mind “So, why does this happen?” I asked her. She responded with “Having a family history of addiction.”Amie asks curiously “So does our family have a history of addiction?" Aqua responds shamefully “Yes”
I walk into my house, the house is a complete mess my mother aqua doesn't seem to care to clean it. We don’t have much to eat either my mom barely has money for food or barely has food in the fridge so sometimes I don’t have much to eat but she always has candy with her so that’s all that we pretty much eat which I realize that is why me and mom both have a craving for it because it’s what we can afford to buy.
