Yumiko was blending into our family easily. She was always talking with our mom, helping out when things broke.
We also saw how much my brother and Yumiko were in love. They were always doing stuff for each other, talking to each other, and they finally learned to not make out in my room! Finally!
“Hey, so I have to tell you guys something.” Yumiko said.
“Yeah, what?” I asked, looking at my mom.
“I don’t know, Sel!”
“What is it?” I asked.
“Well, I’m expecting!”
“Wait. What?!” I was so not ‘expecting’ to hear that! I eyed her, like it would be obvious. “You’re pregnant?”
“Yes! Jonathan and I are so excited, I mean, sure we thought we’d enjoy married life before we had kids, but it is exciting!”
“Wow! That’s so awesome! I’m happy for you two!”
“I might actually meet my grandkids!” Mom said, excitedly.
I really am happy for them, but it seems like I have no ‘big moments’ of my own… I just watch my brother’s picture-perfect life, while I wait to get married and have kids. Everything seems to work out for him. At least I have my own special someone now, in Ramon. He is perfect. Sure things might be going fast, but it’s true love! It doesn’t matter, because we’re meant to be together! After all, we had our first kiss!
After that, well, things really sped up. Like really.
