What about DadByKefkarowantha & Asukafan  Chapter One: “I feel my fate in what I cannot fear”Theodore Roethke                      Dear Diary Why couldn't I just havelistened? Parents seem to be right about some things, if I would have onlylistened things could have been so different. I wouldn't have to miss waking upin the morning to the smell of cinnamon in the air as mom makes her famouscinnamon waffles, or how she would always wake me up before my alarm went off.

Every morning, I would get so mad at her for waking me up 10 minutes early. Thatwas 10 minutes of valuable sleep time and now, I understand that old saying. Ialways knew looking back at the times I cried would make me laugh, but I neverknew looking back at the times I laughed would make me cry. I wish I could havejust one day back, one day to do again the things I hated so much just so Icould hate you one more time, so I could yell at you and run to my room. So Icould hear my door slam echo down the hall like the murmurs of the wind whispingthrough a midnight forest. Dad cursing as his trophy falls off his mantle. Thethings I hated so much are the things I am going to miss.

                                                                                                        â€œAlizee are you still up?” â€œYeah dad” â€œWell go to bed already, you have to go to school tomorrow” â€œBut daaaaddd” â€œBut nothing.”              Alizee reached towards her brass Victorianstyle desk lamp and turned it off. She sighed slightly as she pushed her chairback mumbling how she wished that she could do what she wanted for a change asshe headed into her closet. Alizee changed into some flannel pajama pants and abillabong t-shirt. She could hear a pounding at her door then the all toofamiliar creaking that it made as it whooshed open.

 â€œHey brat, I brought you a night light so you don't getscared tonight.” â€œShut up Brynn” bellows Alizee as she walks out of hercloset.

 â€œYou're such a nerd. Oh daddy I can't possibly go to schooltoday”“Maybe I miss mom a little more then you do now get out ofhere” â€œAwww does princess need her beauty sleep for her big day” â€œGet out or I'm telling” â€œYou're such a baby sometimes.”              Brynn tosses the nightlight towards Alizee ashe walks out laughing at his own little joke. Alizee shakes her head in disgustas she lies down on her bed. She closes her eyes and sighs aloud as she clapsonce turning her lights off.

                     The night came and went; soon the morning sunwas shining through Alizee's window. The rays of light waking her as they hither eyes, Alizee rolls over onto her side just before the electronic blaring ofher alarm goes off. She swats at her nightstand a couple of times before shemakes contact with the clock knocking it off the nightstand.

 â€œUgh, I hate mornings” mutters Alizee            Alizee sits up in bed rubbing the sleep from hereyes, her dark brown hair spilling over her matching brown eyes. As she standsup her nose crinkles as the cold hardwood floor runs through her like deaththrough a graveyard. As she walks across the floor of her bedroom she shiversslightly as she walks into her closet pulling out a green sweater and somejeans.

 â€œAlizee, you better be up, you aren't getting out of schooltoday” â€œI'm up dad geeze give me a break.” â€œIf you were more like your brother you would be down herealready eating. Tracy provided us with a nice breakfast and you are being quiterude”            Alizee headed downstairs looking at the flooronly glancing up every now and then. As she headed into the kitchen she couldhear her brother and dad talking.

 â€œAlizee, nice of you to join us” â€œYeah, are you ready for school” taunts Brynn â€œYou're such a dick Brynn; excuse me for caring about mom” â€œHey I cared about mom to; I just don't whine and sulkabout it day after day like you. She's dead Alizee get over it” â€œI can't believe you said that Brynn” â€œI can't believe you're such a brat Alizee. Life goes onand just because we are moving on doesn't mean we don't miss mom and the rest ofus aren't going to put up with your whining.” â€œBrynn that's enough” â€œBut dad” â€œBrynn, I said that's enough” â€œLook, honey I can't blame you for missing mom we all do,but...” â€œNo I understand that I am the only one who ever lovedher!”            Alizee runs up the stairs with tears streamingdown her face. She firmly slams her door shut. The slam echoes down the halllike a tidal wave crashing against the shore.  Both Brynn and Cade (Alizee'sfather) and shake slightly as the door slamming rings painfully in there ears.

 â€œWhere are you going Brynn?” â€œOh just to apologize dad.” â€œBrynn” yells Cade in a stern tone.

 â€œI swear dad, I am not gonna cause any problems. You knowme dad” â€œYeah, you are the good one”            Brynn turns away from his dad with a grin on hisface as he walks out the kitchen he spots Tracy dusting in the family room.

Brynn eyes immediately catch Tracy's ass as she bends over to dust underneaththe coffee table. Brynn's eyes gaze at her ass like a movie screen as she cleansaway.

 â€œOh hi Brynn” says Tracy with a strong Japanese accent â€œHi Trace, how are you doing?” â€œOh alright I guess. Is something wrong with Alizee?” â€œOh, no of course not, she is just having a rough time witheverything you know.” â€œAhhh, alright I see.” â€œWell I suppose I better go see if she's okay, talk to youlater if you are around” â€œWell where else would I be? I am not aloud to leave.” â€œOh, yeah well see you Trace”            Brynn knocks once on Alizee's door and thenwalks in. As the door splits into two equal pieces and slides into the eitherside of he wall Brynn can see Alizee lying on her bed face down.

 â€œOh, what's wrong? Is the baby going to cry the day away?Boo hoo hoo I'm Alizee” â€œI hate you Brynn! I hate you so much” shouts Alizee in awavering voice.

 â€œYeah well you're stuck with me.”            Alizee rolls over and stands up out of bed withher eyes red from crying and a few stray tears still running down her cheek. Shetakes a few steps forwards while digging her hand into her pocket.

            Meanwhile, Cade who has just finished picking upthe breakfast plates walks into the family room. He passes by Tracy withoutgiving her a glance.

 â€œMistah Watters” â€œWhat is it?” â€œI, I was wondering if I could use my real name? I mean youpromised once I turned 19 and that was a few months ago.” â€œWhat is your name again?” â€œAyame Atsuko Deguchi” â€œWell you can just as well forget it, because you areTracy, just Tracy. We own you, your family sold you to us fair and square, nowget out of my way. I need to talk to my daughter/” â€œHey sis, what are you doing with the Trash Reducer?” â€œJust this” â€œHey wait, No don't point that at me, no one knows whatcould happen”            A blue stream of light shot out from themetallic gun. Brynn's eyes bugged out like a deer looking into headlights. Theblue stream of light engulfed his body.

 â€œWhat is happening to me? Nooooo”            Alizee could only grin as she watched herbrother shrink before her very eyes. The once tall teen was reduced to a mere 3inch tall quivering doll standing on her bedroom floor.

            Brynn's jaw nearly smacks itself on the floor ashe stares up at his gigantic sister.

 â€œA,A,A, Alizee, your shoes, I am the same size as yourshoes? What have you done brat?” â€œWow, it worked, you're the same height as my heels, 3inches”            Brynn stared at her 3 inch soles in disbelief.

He then hears the thud, thud thud of shoes.

 â€œLook, Alizee, we need to talk” â€œWhat dad”            Alizee drops the Trash Reducer as she sees herdad standing in the door way. A million excuses cross her mind on why herbrother is only 3 inches tall but none of them seem good. As the gun hits theground a few pieces come flying off the ground.

 â€œLook at what you did? You broke the Trash reducer, thiswas our best one. This is coming out of your allowance young lady” â€œI'm sorry, dad I didn't mean to”            As she picks up the gun it sparks and a bluestream of light is once again emitted from the gun. Both Alizee and Brynn watchas the beam hits there father.

            Brynn cranes his neck hardly able to believe hisfather has not yet saw him. Almost faster then either can blink there fatherdisappears before there eyes.

 â€œDad? Dad!”
