First Attempt

How It Was

Here I sit in the chair that’s always unkempt surrounded by little people in the orange and white house owned by Grammy on Wool Road. On this road, in this yard, my cousins and I grew up. This house is so old we’ve witnessed multiple renovations. Here we broke things and we created things. Here we learnt about life and what it meant to be happy.

In

this house we learnt to be independent; we cooked, we cleaned and we took care of one another. In this house we lived, and on this road we ceased to exist. This is where we said hello every vacation and this is where we said until next time. Lately there hasn’t been many greetings or farewells.

After

we all go our separate ways we have to meet back here at least once every year we told each other. We broke our promise. I left and soon after so did my older cousins. We attempted to keep in touch, but after a while our lives became so disparate that we talked only when we saw each other. I suppose one day we’ll all go back to that little orange and white house on Wool Road, I just hope it’s soon.
