|A wish episode 36 by Pizarena: 3:23 pm On April 3, 2022|
I’ve never been to a cemetery before. Most movies that shows when a girl or boy visit the cemetery to honour their loved ones, was boring to me. The cemetery is really quiet and it kinda creeps me out so i scooted closer to Dad.
I could see different tombstones with names engraved on them. My eyes fell on one tombstones in the middle of other tombstones. It was five times bigger than the other tombstones.
“I-is this hers?” I asked Dad quietly.
Dad smiled and gave my hand a gentle squeeze. “Yes, bambina.”
I knelt down and placed my bag on the grass. My f!ng£r gently grazed the tombstone, it was a little dusty so i brought out my handkerchief.
“No, bambina.” Dad held out his own handkerchief to me. “Use mine, yours will get dirty.”
“Its okay Dad.” I said, giving him a small smile. “I’ll wash it when i get home.”
“If you say so bambina.” Dad said softly.
I slowly brought my handkerchief up on the tombstone and cleaned the hard surface until the dust were gone.
Dad told me that Mum’s favourite flowers were daisies and roses so i bought two bunches from the flower shop earlier today.
Taking out the flowers from my bag, i placed it on the tombstones.
“Hey Mum.” I started, taking in a deep breath and releasing it. “Its me Brielle, your daughter. Dad told me some interesting things about you, dont worry, Mum, it was good things. He told me about how smart and intelligent you are, how you love singing. Guess what Mum, i also love singing and not to brag but i have an amazing voice. It would have been really awesome to sing a duet with you, Mum. I saw your pictures, you’re so beautiful and i wish i have your looks but i guess God had other plans.”
I glanced up at Dad and smiled before fixing my eyes back down on the tombstone. “I got Dad looks and i love the fact that i look like my Dad.”
“Look, Mum.” I took off my locket and placed it on the tombstone. “Dad gave me the locket you wanted me to have, its really beautiful and i love it. You know what, Mum, ever since Dad mentioned you, i wished that God still kept you here on earth so i can meet you. But i know that you are in a better place, and were you are, there is peace. I’m going back to my school cause i’ll be graduating to senior year. Once i graduate, am no longer staying in that state again. I’ll move to a new state, Mum. It wasn’t really my idea to move out but my best friend, Ava, suggested it. She’s really nice Mum, and am sure you will like her.”
“Mum.” I let the tears that streamed down my cheeks fall. “Even though i’ve not seen you in physical or have met you before, i can feel that you’re here with me. It might sound a bit crazy but i feel it and i know that you’ll always be with me right here.” I touched the lower part of my chest.
I put my handkerchief in my bag and picked it up.
“Goodbye, Mum, for now.” I klzzed three of my f!ng£rs and placed it on the tomb. “I love you, Mum.”
Standing up, i turned to Dad and wrapped my arms around him. Dad hugged me back, klzzing the top of my head as he gently stroked my hair.
“I know.” I said softly, tightening my arms around him.
“I cant believe we’re leaving tommorow, am going to miss this place.” Ava whined, plopping down on chair.
“Didn’t know you’ve already gotten attached to colorado.” Damon said, with a smirk.
“Of course i’ve gotten attached! Here is really fun and cool. I wish we can stay longer.” Ava said, a sad expression on her face.
“We’re graduating.” Alex said bluntly. “After the graduation we can spend the holiday’s here.”
“But its only going to be for a month, it would have been awesome if we can stay here much longer but.” Ava trailed off, her eyes flickering over to mine.
“But we still have to support Brielle in whatever decision she makes.” Alex finished off.
“Which reminds me, Brielle.” Damon turned to me. “Have thought about the state you want to stay in?”
“Of course i have.” I replied coolly.
“Really? Where?” Ava asked eagerly.
“Colorado.” I said, a sincere smile tugged up in my lips. “I’ve gotten close to Emily, Johnny and Jordan. I found out my Dad is here and i have a stepmom and two stepbrothers. So why wont i choose to stay in colorado?”
“Best of all, Xavier isn’t going to be that far since New York is close to colorado.”
“Omg! Bestie!” Ava threw herself in my arms. “Thank you, thank you. You thought about it and made a right decision in choosing here.”
“Okay, Ava.” I laughed, pushing her gently away from me. “But i still have to tell you guys something.”
“Oh, what is it Brielle? Anything wrong?” Alex asked worriedly.
I opened my mouth to reply but got interrupted by the door being slammed open loudly making me jump up.
“What’s up guys?” Xavier asked, klzzing my cheek and sitting down beside me.
“Brielle was going to tell us something until you decided to show up. Where the hell have you been?” Damon demanded.
“Aunt Emily needed help with something’s so had to attend to her.” Xavier turned to me and held my hand. “What’s it you wanna talk about, princess?”
“Um, i choosed to stay here in colorado, Xavier.” I said and Xavier face immediately spilt up into a smile.
I nodded. “Yes and when Ava, Alex and i move in here. I want to stay with my Dad.”
“Oh, i dont see anything wrong with that, Brielle.” Ava said, surprising me. “He’s your father and you just met him two days ago so eventually, you’ll want to spend some more time with him.”
“Does this mean that you’re okay with it?” I asked uncertainly.
“Hundred percent okay.” Ava said, with a smile.
“We can stay with you, if your Dad agrees then visit Aunt Emily afterwards. So am okay with it.” Alex flashed me a light smile.
“I honestly dont understand what you guys are talking about but am also okay with it.” I rolled my eyes. Typical Damon.
I turned to Xavier, who looks like he’s deep in thought. “Um, Xavier?”
He sighed and wrapped his arms around me. “If you trust your Dad then i guess i can trust him, so am okay with you moving in with him and his family.”
“Thank you.” I whispered.
He klzzed my forehead. “You’re welcome princess.”
“Its 8:08 pm guys and tomorrow we’ll be hitting the road so let’s spend the night playing with Johnny.” Ava suggested.
“The kid’s been bummed ever since he learned that we’re leaving tomorrow.” Damon said, crossing his legs together.
“Well why didn’t anyone tell me.” I said, standing up from the couch. “Lets have a sleepover with him, that will make him feel better.”
They all nodded in agreement and we walked to Johnny room. I opened the door, surprising the latter who was currently watching SpongeBob.
“Hey Johnny.” I sat down on his bed.
“Hi, Brielle.” Johnny mumbled, switching off the television. He must be really upset because SpongeBob is his favourite cartoon.
“Why the long face, bud?” Xavier grabbed Johnny and sat him down on his lap.
“You all are leaving tomorrow and am going to miss you.” Johnny said quietly.
“We’re going for our graduation, Johnny.” Alex said gently. “After that, its going to be a holiday for us all, Xavier and Damon own will just be two weeks but me, Brielle and Ava will still be here.”
“I dont understand why Xavier and Damon have shorter holiday’s.” Johnny said, furrowing his brows in confusion.
“We’ll be going to college, little guy.” Damon knelt down to face Johnny. “Xavier and i will spend enough time with you before we go. Okay?”
“Okay!” Johnny grinned. “I understand!”
“So, how about a sleep over with all your favourite teenagers?” Ava asked Jordan and his face instantly spilt into a big smile.
“Really? Yes, please!”
“Okay, i’ll get the snacks.” Damon walked towards the door, dragging Ava with him.
“I want to help the others in setting up the room.” Ava groaned. “Go Damon, you’ll manage to bring up all the snacks on your own.”
“Nuh, uh.” Damon waved his index f!ng£r dismissively. “You’re coming with me.” He grabbed Ava waist and hoisted her over his shoulder.
“Damon, you jerk! Put me down!”
“Nope.” Ava shrieked when Damon started running.
“Can we be so sure that Damon wont eat all the snacks before it gets here?” Johnny asked innocently.
“Dont worry Johnny.” I ruffled his hair. “Ava is there to make sure he doesn’t eat all the snacks.”
“Hopefully, she wont join him in eating them.” Xavier muttered.
“I wish we spent some more time with each other.” Antonio said as he hugged me back.
“Dont worry Antonio.” I klzzed his forehead. “I’ll be back, Dad told you. Didn’t he?”
Antonio nodded. “He did.”
“So dont be upset, once we graduate and stay for a few days, packing up, we’re heading straight here to colorado.”
“Okay, Brielle. I’ll miss you.” Antonio gave me one last hug before walking towards the living room.
“Do you really have to leave?” A small voice said and i heard sniffles.
I sighed and walked behind the couch, crouching down to pick up my baby brother. “I have to go, Angelo, i’ll be graduating.”
“Antonio told me that.” He looked down at his shirt, fiddling with his f!ng£rs. “I’m still going to miss you.”
“Me too bud but am still coming back and when i come back, i’ll be staying here in the house.”
Angelo looked up at me, his big innocent eyes widening. “Promise?” He held up his pinky f!ng£r.
Angelo turned and narrowed his eyes at Xavier who was casually leaning against the doorway. “You, big guy.” He gestured with his index f!ng£r, telling Xavier to come closer.
Xavier rolled his eyes and plodded towards us. “What is it, Angelo?”
Angelo glared at Xavier and jabbed his f!ng£r in Xavier’s chest. “Take care of my sissy, if anything happens to her. You wont like the consequences. Understand?”
Xavier gave a mocking bow. “Yes, your majesty.”
Clearly too innocent to know that Xavier was being sarcastic, Angelo nodded his head in satisfaction and squirmed. I gently set him down on the floor and he ran to Antonio, jumping down on his lap a little too hard.
“Angelo.” Antonio growled. “You know how much i hate it when you jump on me like that.”
Angelo grinned. “Sorry bubba.” He leaned his head on Antonio chest, wrapping his arms around him.
Antonio sighed and hugged Angelo back, a small smile tugging up on his lips.
“They’re so cute.” I cooed, bringing out my phone to take a picture of them.
“Cute my ass.” Xavier scoffed.
“Xavier, that’s not very nice.” I scolded, crossing my arms. “Dont insult them, they’re my brothers.”
“Sorry, baby girl.” Xavier leaned in to give me a quick klzz.
“We’re packed up!” Ava, Damon and Alex approached us, holding their bags. “We were too busy trying to console a wailing Jordan.”
I heard loud cries and stomping of feet so i craned my neck to see Jordan running into the dining room. Jordan dramatically threw his arms around me, nearly sending me down to the floor, if not for Xavier who was swift to grab my shoulders.
“I’m going to miss you so much Brielle!” He cried, tightening his grip in me. “I’ll miss you!”
“I’m going to miss you too Jordan.” I wheezed out, patting his back. “Can you please stop hugging me now, i cant breathe.”
Jordan quickly let go off me. “Oh, sorry.” He apologized sheepishly.
“Its alright Jord.” Jordan grinned and stared at something behind before he ran and jumped.
“Dude, what the hell?” Ava, Damon and Alex were laughing while bringing out their phones.
Confused, i turned around and was met with an angry Xavier who was trying to rip off Jordan away from his body. Jordan kept on repeating ‘i’ll miss you’ while clinging onto Xavier like a koala.
“Please let go of me Jordan.” Xavier said, already looking tired.
“Not until you say it back.”
Xavier sighed. “Fine, i’ll miss you too.”
Jordan let go of Xavier and flashed him a wide grin. “That wasn’t so hard.”
“Speak for yourself.” Xavier grumbled, picking up his bag and storming out of the dining room.
“You really love pissing him off dont you?”
Jordan shot me a wink. “A lot.”
I rolled my eyes and strode over to the living room. My Dad, Madison and Emily all walked in to the living room at once. They were having a meeting before and didn’t want to be disturbed.
I hugged my Dad and Madison, telling them goodbyes while promising them that i’ll be back soon.
“Thank you Emily, you’ve been nothing but kind to me when i stepped into this house.” I said as i embraced her tightly.
“Shush now young lady.” She pressed a klzz on my forehead. “I’ll always treat you right, and you have nothing to thank me for. Understood?”
“Yes, ma’am.” I gave a dramatic salute to which she laughed at.
After we were all done giving lots of hugs and calming down the crying ones, who are Johnny and Jordan. We were already set on the road.
“You better not fall asleep Damon.” Xavier warned his younger brother. “I let you have the wheel so dont even dare tell me that you’re sleepy.”
“I wont kill us all Xavier.” Damon said, rolling his eyes. “And am not feeling sleepy.”
“Fall asleep and i’ll end you.”
“Hah! I’ll like to see you try that big bro.”
“How are you two related to me?” Alex asked dryly, staring at his brothers with a bored expression.
“By blood.” Xavier and Damon responded simultaneously.
“Oh, God.” Alex groaned, covering his face with his hands.
