by Me! | Score: 2350

It all began when my parents thought that I wasn't good enough for them, they thought that I wasn't the child that they cared enough to care of. I was replaced by a kid who was just... different. A kid that seemed to shapeshift into whatever my parents wanted him to be. A straight A's student? Done. A violin prodigy? Say no more. It just made me feel... useless.

Her hair was shining so bright that you can't help but be captivated by it. She had golden bronze skin and face would perk up whenever I smiled at her. When she put her hair strand behind her ear, it would always fall on her face because of how small her ears were. She liked wearing earrings that were so big that would make her head rest in a weird and crooked position, but she didn't care. I asked her what she liked, "Well... everything!"
"Everything?" I replied. 
"Yup! There's just too many things in the world for me not to like."
"What about you?" She tilted her head, waiting for an intriguing response, but I know it'll disappoint her.
"Well, umm... I like uhhh... you."
Her eyes widened.
"I mean, uhhh... sorr
