But how could you be my home, if you're no firm ground on which I can build?
Are you the one who's going to help me and motivate me to keep on building when I'm ready to tear it all apart again?
Or are you going to keep rocking the very ground on which I stand?
I don't think you can be my home..

There was no answer, just dead silence.
Still silence. His mom marched up the stairs, filled with anger. She stomped her feet like a group of Nazi soliders had just entered their home.
“If that boy is ignoring me on purpose…” she began talking to herself.
Before she even knocked on his bedroom door, John opened the door.
“What? I was listening to my music.”
“I just got a call from the school. They say that you have been ditching classes lately. Is this true?”
“Maybe I have. So what?”
His moms eyes widened like they were about to fly out of her head like in a cartoon show.
“In what way do you think that is acceptable?” she demanded furiously.
“Like you even care”
“Of course I care, I’m your mother.”
“Sure you do. Now get out of my room. I’m busy”
John went to close his door on her, but hi

Every single time that something happens between that woman and CPS, everyone always comes to his house to "kiss and make up." But instead, she has to be a bitch to everyone and act all hostile and make everything worse.
When Roberts dad got remarried, he was genuinely happy for him. Thomas Moore deserved a little bit of happiness after raising three boys by himself. Everyone was happy about the engagement. And the new woman in their life was welcomed with open arms by everyone. The only thing that Thomas and his new wife, Andrea, forgot to mention to Robert (21) and his brothers is that Andrea has three grown children of her own.
Not that that was necessarily a bad thing. Two of her three kids were guys about the same age as Roberts brothers Matt(29) and Sam(32). Sage (25) and Donnie(30) were okay. They had

“I know, I know. Go downstairs and call him up here.” She looked pretty mad. It made _ all the more excited to watch him get chewed out. He had to bang really hard to get his attention. He could hardly stand being so close to the source of the music for so long. That’s how loud it was. How could Ray take all that? Rick was right outside his bedroom door and he could barely tolerate it for a few seconds. The music was so loud they could feel it through the floor. The floor actually vibrated. Lily complained she felt it pounding in her head.
“You’re going to have to learn to live with it.” Ray said when he came upstairs.
“You’ve got some nerve. Did you hear what he said?”
“I heard him. You’ve never played it that loud before. I thought we were being bombed or something!”
“I’m pretty sure I’ve done it before.”
“Well, never that early. We hea

"Ace, come on, I know you heard me knocking."
A small protesting groan came from under the blankets on the huge round bed, making Rhi walk over.
She wrinkled her nose a little at the musty stale smell that hung in the air, completely unlike Ace's favourite fruity smell he sprayed the room with.
He hadn't left his room much for the nine months that Maddie had gone. Only to get water and food every few days. He didn't want to. All he could think about was how she'd betrayed him so horribly, and agonised over how he'd scared her.

Another sound of protest came from under the blanket, and Rhi growled a little with irritation, grabbing it and pulling it off him.
"Alexander Christopher, stop being such a baby!"
Ace looked at her, his eyes dull and red from crying. His hair was tangled and messy, and his skin was pale, making him look sick.
"Come on. You need
