Only Child?

Write about the benefits of being an only child—or the advantages of having siblings.

Both kinda apply to me. For 18 years I was an only child – I didn’t know I had siblings. I didn’t have parents that took care of me, but that still made me an only child or should it be orphaned child.

Now I have four brothers and one sister. I’m only close to one of them – the one who I almost had more than a friendship with ironically. Nick and I have gone out looking for guys together. I made a pretty good wing man for my brother I think – he went home with a guy so that was a plus. I didn’t that night, but I had a good time.

My sister is probably the closest – Iris’ children I’m closer to. One of them works in the IT department – he’s a great help when I need tech help. I like to tease him, but he’s a good kid.

The advantages of having multiple siblings tho is we don’t have to take the brunt of our father’s displeasure alone. He gets angry at all of us for various reasons, but I’m glad I’m not the only one of Kai’s children that likes men – it makes life a little easier for Nick now that I’m Kai’s son too. Though I still get blamed for turning Nick gay – he was before we hooked up. But that’s another story.

Being an only child was lonely. I don’t know if it has benefits since I didn’t reap any as a child. But that has nothing to do with being an only child and more to do with being an orphan. So not really a good topic – just me rambling – sorry.
