Of course, Zack got his way of the having the cake, and my two little sisters and I would just stand there smiling. Marvelling at the fact that he was like our hero, admiring the way he was able to get away with something we could never do. That and hoping he would share a piece of our hard work, but it never happened. Surprisingly I didn't mind, I was Zachery's willing slave, ready to do whatever he wanted because he was my older brother, it was just the way it is. No one could ever hate Zachery; he always made me feel as though I was the one person in the world he could never live without; even if it meant cleaning up the crumbs after a meal.

He made me my own little fairy tale and turned our little house into my castle.Paragraphs 3-4: AbsenceExplicit Analysis (Abby Cruz)Absence was the waking call of chaos in our family that day. My sister Lizzie was diagnosed with leukemia, she was the youngest, she was fragile, and had her whole life ahead of her. The disease scraped her entire body, and time did not wait to spare her life. On that very day, the last day she took her final breath, we were all there; everyone except Zachery. What happened to the light and hope that Lizzie needed; what I needed. I feel confused, as if my brain clouded, not knowing where I am, wondering why or how he isn't here right now. I'm listening to the buzz of...
