I opened my eyes and was staring at a white ceiling. What happened? I wondered before turning to see Amelia keenly starring at me.
“Just then , the door burst open – my mom and dad rushed in.
“Son? My dad yelled from afar. Amelia was holding my right hand still, I tried sitting up and I did.
“What happened to you? My mom cried.
“Oh mom! It’s nothing serious, why are you here? I asked recalling everything that happened.
Amelia called to inform us that you got injured and fainted so we rushed over to see you , dad replied sitting by a corner.
“What happened Jason? Who injured you? Mom asked staring at my left bandaged hand.
“No , I just I..don’t no, I replied feebly.
“You’re coming home with us , mom reasoned .
“Uh..OK , I replied. Not that I wanted to go with them but I wanted to get away from Amelia , her being so close to jack is making me sick .
“I’ll get your stuff from where you guys lounged, dad announced and left.
“And what of you Amelia, are you alright? Mom asked and she nodded. I wonder why she hasn’t spoken a word since I woke up.
Uh Amelia stay with Jason I’ll go check up on the doc to know if we can take you with us today, mom said and left Amelia and I alone.
I rested back on the bed while mom left and Amelia freed her hand from mine standing up to leave. I wonder why she’s behaving that way.
She got to the door and turned to look at me again before existing the room.
“Wait, she didn’t say a word to me?”
That’s really strange…did Liza tell her anything? Oh my gosh! That’s it. Liza must have told he something to behave like way.
“I need to find out fast, I looked around and noticed my phone by a corner where my dad sat down before. I rested up and stretched my right hand to take it but couldn’t, oh shit! Seems it also affected my right hand.

I stood up properly and was about taking it before the door burst open , Liza walked in and saw what I was doing.
“What are you doing?” She asked as she ran up to me.
“Never mind, I don’t need that anymore. I mean since she’s here with me I’ll just have to ask her if she told Amelia the truth.
“Liz what did you tell Amelia?” I asked sounding cold.
“Meaning ?” Are you asking me meaning? I fired getting angry.
“OK I told them something, she replied.
“Are you crazy?” You told “them”?
“Yes , Amelia is really sensitive, I needed to tell her so she won’t suspect me.
“Geez! Seems this girl wants to die! No wonder Amelia isn’t saying anything to me.
“Liza I think you’ve gone completely insane , I thought you wanted to help me , why then did you tell them the truth? I asked feeling some how.
“Wait, calm down, you don’t even no what I told them, she replied.
“What then did you tell them?” I asked.
Amelia asked me what happened to you course when you stood up to use the restroom, I also followed you and when you were asked what happened to you , you looked at me before replying so she said I knew exactly what happened but I’m keeping them in the dark so I had to tell them that we are dating and didn’t want them to know, she replied and I exhaled relieved.
Why didn’t you say it before ?
Well because you didn’t ask? she replied.
The door opened revealing Amelia as she stood by the door akimbo.
So its true that you guys are dating, she asked looking angry.
So it’s true that you guys are dating? She asked looking angry.
I wanted to speak up but couldn’t find the right words to say.
Uh..I..we…em..Amelia it’s not what you think, I replied feeling guilty.
So we have become so distanced that you can’t tell me anything any longer? Am still your little sister you no, she said amidst tears and rushed out.
I wanted to run after her , the guilt is killing me but Liza prevented me from leaving by blocking me.
“What is it?” I asked angrily.
“You can’t go after her Jason” , she replied.
“You wanted me to help you and I’ve agreed so you can’t go after her okay?” She added but I ignored her.
I pushed her out of my way ignoring the wires fixed to my body, I wanted to go but the wires prevented me so I angrily pulled them off me and reached the door and was about to open it when she said something.
You’ll only end up falling deeply in love with her and it will hurt you both at last.
I turned to face her and I could see tears forming in her eyes . I don’t understand why she’s in tears but she’s the least of my concern.
I finally opened the door and was about looking for her before mom showed up.
“Son?” Why are you up now? She asked with concern.
“Have you seen Amelia?” I asked ignoring her question.
“Yes , she headed that way , she replied pointing at the right hand side of the hospital.
“OK, mom thanks, I replied and wanted going after Amelia but she held me and dragged me back to my ward.
“Are you okay?” She asked touching my fore head.
“Yes mom, I replied still feeling uneasy.
“Your dad will soon be here” , Amelia will stay with them until she decides to get back home okay? Mom said and I nodded.
“Good morning ma’am” , Liza greeted and that’s when I realized she was still in the ward.
“Oh morning Liza , how are your parents?” She inquired.
“Quite good , she replied and excused
Throughout my stay at the hospital, I didn’t see Amelia again.
I got discharged and went home with mom and dad.
“I couldn’t even stop thinking about Amelia, every second, every minute I think about her, I was gradually going crazy. It’s high time I tell mom and dad so they’ll no what to do with me.
Hmm I hate the turn of things a lot . I can’t deny my strong feelings for Jason but I’ve always known he has feelings for Amelia even before he found out himself.
The way he treats her, it was more than a brotherly love and feelings so I looked into it and confirmed my suspicion.
The way Jason is still behaving, it will be quite hard to let go of his feelings but the worse of it all is Amelia.
She, the fact that she also likes him…what am I saying…she loves him and she already told me about it but I thought she was kidding and now everything is confirmed.
Jason doesn’t know about how Amelia feels and Amelia doesn’t know how Jason feels.
I just feel real pity for both of them , I love Jason but at the same time love Amelia…. I think its best I let Amelia know about Jason’s feelings and maybe they can resolve it .
I’ve made up my mind to tell them once they come back from work today. I’ll wait for them and talk to them no matter the time they get back.
I showered and stayed at home since the doctor said I should rest.
I started playing video games to get my mind off Amelia, I played for hours but still couldn’t concentrate, the fact that she was angry niggard badly at me.
I stopped with the video game stuff and decided to sleep – at least if I sleep I’ll stop thinking about her.
I lay down on my bed and closed my eyes tightly to sleep off fast but sleep didn’t come. I turned and continued turning until it finally came.
I opened my eyes and everywhere was dim , it’s evening already.
I got off my bed and checked the time to find out it was 7 in the evening.
I went down and had some cookies with fruits juices. After eating I went back up to have a warm bath and after everything I came down to wait for them. While waiting in the couch I dozed off again.
I felt someone rubbing my cheeks and I fled my eye lid open to see mom starring back at me.
“Mom?” I called and checked the time to discover it was 8:30 pm.
“You came back early, I said cleaning my face with my palm.”
“Yes darling, I had to, for you , she replied and sat down beside me on the couch.”
“So honey, why are you not in bed?”she asked holding my hand.
“Em..I actually wanted to tell you guys something – you and dad, I replied and she smiled.”
“Alright baby , I’ll go freshen up while we wait for your dad okay?” She said and I nodded. You can hi kwaku on+233544142683 to be added to story headquarters room for more stories from there. She left me to her room and few minutes later dad came home.
“Dad? “I called standing to give him a hug.
“Oh my boy!” He replied and held my back.
“How are you doing?” He further asked.
“I’m okay dad ,but actually wanted to tell you and mom something really important.”
“Oh! about your school?” He asked.
“No dad , not school.”
“Your mom is back right? “He asked and I nodded, then he went up stairs and my mom came down later to set the dinning to her taste.
I was discussing with mom on other things while waiting for dad to come down. He came down few minutes later and I cleared my throat and started.
“Em ,mom , dad , I think I’m possessed.”
“I need prayers, I further added.”
“What is it son?” Dad asked.
“I think I’m in love with Amelia, I blurted stupidly and they both starred at their self.”
“What?” What are you trying to say? My mom further asked.
I am in love with Amelia mom and its not just a brotherly love, I added and they kept starring at me quietly.
“Mom, dad ,why aren’t you saying anything? “you’re scaring me ,I added feeling so scared of the next thing.
After a long silence from them my mom finally said something.
“Honey come here, she said stretching her hand towards me.”
I stood up and went to sit with her not understanding the situation at hand.
Em are you sure about what you just said, she asked caressing my hand.
“Yes mom, I’m hundred percent sure of my feelings, I’ve been feeling this way for a while now, I added and my dad sighed heavily.”
“Can you help me? I further asked and my mom smiled.”
I can’t honey , but you can help yourself, she replied making me really confused.
“Mom help myself? If I had a way I couldn’t have even informed you guys , I replied soberly. ”
My mom looked at my dad and he nodded his head and she faced me properly.
“Listen Jason, listen to everything I want to tell you and after that you’ll figure out how to help yourself, she said and cleared her throat while I waited for what she wanted to say. ”
It happened long along when you were just 6 years ago Jason , Jason’s mom began.
Your dad took you for picnic and there you saw a little girl playing alone, you felt attracted to her and you left your dad to go talk to her and ask her why she’s alone.
You talked to her and found out that she is an orphan living with her adopted mom who blearily fed for them. From there you had a liking to the girl despite her poor dressing and all.
The next day you saw her again and from there you two became so close and you brought her home as your new friend.
You guys will always be together playing with your toys and all and from there you liked you despite your little age. We took it as a joke tho.
Days and weeks passed by and you two became fond of yourself .
One certain time we were heading to your dad’s company together and we saw her crossing the road in tears. We stopped by the road side and you ran out of the car to go meet her at the other end but unfortunately we didn’t notice a bike rider and he ran into you.
You hit your head hard of the road and you were rushed to a nearby hospital and we were informed your accident affected your memory a little and you forgot a lot of things including the little girl. We later found the little girl and found out the reason for her tears , her adopted mother had died and no one refused taking her in so we took her in.
“What??? Jason shouted and faced his parents.”
What are you trying to…
Just listen Jason, his dad cut him in.
We took you to los Angeles and you grow up there while we took the little girl in and adopted her as our daughter, seeing the way you liked her. we didn’t think twice before doing it as it might help in bringing back all your memories.
So you stayed in los Angeles for a long time and by the time you came back we told you that you had a kid sister and you were so happy and it all started again , the playing and all.
Well we didn’t think history will repeat itself again but I’m quite sure the little girl on her own didn’t recognize you either when you came back, she concluded.
So the little girl is Amelia, Jason’s dad added.
Jason opened his mouth wide in shock and couldn’t believe his ears.
“So? So you mean its alright to be in love with Amelia cause she’s not my birth sister? “He asked and the mom shrugged.
Well if you ask me I’ll say its your “fate”, she replied.
He stood up and faced his parents properly.
“Thanks mom, thanks dad , I think I know what to do , he replied and the mom smiled.”
After the discussion with mom and dad , I couldn’t wait for Amelia to come back so I went back to the beach to look for her.
I got there and she was with her friends, she saw me and throw her eyes away. Liza walked up to me surprised that I returned.
“Why are you here?” She questioned.
“Can you tell Amelia to meet me at the back of the eatery?” I requested ignoring her question.
“Are you sure about that?”
“Yea I’m sure Liza , thanks for everything anyways I won’t be needing your help anymore, I added and she starred at me surprised.”
“Are you sure you are alright?” she asked again and I frowned.
Tell her to meet me now ,it’s urgent , I “replied and left.”
I went to the back of the eatery and waited. People weren’t hardly go there so I figured out it’s the best place to meet her.
I waited a few more minutes and saw her dragging her legs towards me with her hands at akimbo.
She got to where I was and didn’t look at me.
“What do you want? “She asked coldly but I kept mute course I suddenly started recalling something from the past.
“Jason what do you want? “Aren’t you supposed to be home? She asked again and I hugged her to her surprise.
I”‘m sorry,I apologized cutting her off from what she wanted to say.
For my recent behaviours , I’m so sorry, I apologized again hugging her tightly.
She disengaged after a while with a confused and and touched my fore head.
I think you’re running a fever, she said looking worried.
“Really? “I asked also touching my fore head.
Boom! I was just joking , she half yelled and started laughing.
I got you on that one, she added still laughing.
I smiled. So you have forgiven ? I asked and she nodded.
“You no I can’t be angry at you for long, but next time tell me everything bothering okay?$ I don’t want to be left out, she said and I pulled her closer to me.
“From now on Amelia, you won’t be left out in whatsoever I’m doing okay? “I said and she nodded smiling.
And there is one more thing I want so badly from you , I added.
“And what’s that? “She asked giggling.
“A kiss, I replied and she frowned.”
“Come on J ,be more serious alright, she replied.”
“I’m serious, I replied and she pulled herself away from me.”
“Stop joking J, you no its not possible we are…
“Not siblings, I replied before she could complete her statement.”
Her eyes widened and she looked at me.
“Seriously? How? ”
Before I tell you anything honey , I want a kiss first , I replied and pulled her to me again but she kept blinking her eyes.
“Will you close it? “I said jokingly and she smiled.
J…. She was about to say but I kissed her but the surprising thing is that she reciprocated almost immediately and it lasted for a while.
I explained everything to her after a while . she was sad because she’s not dad and mom’s real daughter but she was happy she had us as a family.
She broke up with Jack after a while and we traveled to Los Angeles together to avoid question from people.
Well I got to spend the rest of my life with Amelia not just as my sister but as something else I wanted.
