I've been in love with my stepbrother for years, and the whole town knows it.
Heck, even my own stepfather knows it, and he's totally supportive. There's nothing that stands in the way of our love...or make that my love, since it's my stepbrother himself who's trying to pretend there's nothing between us.
But there is.
And I thought, if I waited long enough, if I was patient and sincere enough...I just thought if I loved him hard enough, he would eventually realize he loved me back.
But he just kept hurting me...just over and over until I was the one who realized the truth.
My stepbrother is never going to love me back.
