My Brother

Carrie’s diary, 12th Feb

In my dreams, I always have a brother. His name’s Liam, and I dream about him a lot.

It’s strange to wake up and only have two sisters. Every time I walk past the computer room and don’t see his battered trainers hanging over the door, exactly where I know they should be, it pulls at me a little bit. Like this isn’t how things were supposed to be. I can’t talk to my parents about it… they’d think I’m crazy.
