Why was it so hard to see I didn't want to pick sides? Every time Pony and Darry would fight I'd always find myself in the middle, both playing tug of war with me and my decision of who was 'right' and who was 'wrong'.

But I couldn't stand it.

So...why couldn't they see that this was killing me? I love them, don't get me wrong. I love them to death and everything. They were my brothers, my family, but I didn't think I could take much more of this. First Sandy sleeping with another guy and getting pregnant with his child and leaving me and then Pony and Darry fighting, again, and dragging me into it.

So I ran.

Anything to get away from the noise.

Why couldn't I just remain neutral? Stay in the middle grounds?
