  • The Sudden Change 
  • A meeting?
  • So what was this meeting your mother called for about?
  • My mother didn't call a meeting.
  • The Sudden Change
  • Why is mom leaving?
  • She can't possibly be thinking about it, who would we live with? 
  • The Sudden Change
  • One day, we were at my house and all of the sudden my aunts and uncles came to my house. I was shocked because we didn't gather together randomly, we always set up dates. All my cousins came to play in my room and the adults were in my living room talking. My cousins were all boys.
  • What do you care about them for? They'll leave sooner or later too. 
  • We later found out what the meeting was for, my mother had announced that she needed a change in scenery. She told my aunts and uncles that she was moving to New York and she would be back soon. I was in shock, how could she, I was speechless meanwhile my sisters talked and cried, but no tears came out of my eyes.  
  • The Sudden Change
  • Yes! Great idea. 
  • Next thing we knew, we were being dropped off at my father's house, who we hardly talked to since my mother and him got divorced; however, since my little sister had a different dad, Mariano, her dad would be picking her up from my father's house and we would only get to see her whenever her dad worked, we would just babysit her. My father was at the doorstep with his new family.
  • I now had a  half-brother, Alex, and a step-mother, Maria. Weeks passed and my  sister still needed time adjusting to the idea of us living with my father, and as she did many arguments arose because she couldn't get over my mother leaving.
  • You can't keep starting arguments with our father and his wife, it's not their fault
  • Eventually my sister began to get along with everyone at the house and my little sister began to visit us almost every weekend. My older sister still held her guard up pretty high, but not around family. 
  • Who wants pizza? We can watch movies. 
  • Three years into living with my father, my mother had a child in New York. When my sister broke the news to me I didn't know how to react. After her promising to come back and never actually doing so, finding out she had a new family was a huge leap.
  • Our mother had another kid in New York.
  • what?
