The Picture Perfect Family but You Read the Fine Print

The picture perfect family was seen at the Football games. but the picture had secrets scribble all over it. A dad an alcoholic gone from 10pm to 4am but he swears this is the last time. A mom hard at work till work was no longer. Now an added member just 2 months makes this mess much harder. But they kept the smiles, smiles kept their secrets safe from the public. The daughter Gabriella, stares into the mirrors at the malls wondering why her bikini body wasn’t the body that Society excepts. The more followers she wants the more makeup she needs. The little girl who wanted to be a princess now just wants to be pretty. Their son Max, the caption of the football team has a forbidden secret which would only bring shame to the family’s name. They say he’s wired different but he’s not buying it. He just wants to be “normal” but How can the quarterback be in love with the linebacker. Momma said just one more glass about 2 bottles ago. The next morning mom gets ready for an interview and is out the door as soon as dad enters for the first time all night. No words were exchanged because their facial expressions said more than words ever could. Where did it go wrong. High school sweethearts now look at each other like strangers, but over time they both became good actors. Gabriella was upstairs getting ready for cheer but when she puts her hair up she notices her hair has gone patchy. She takes as long as possible to get ready so she has to miss breakfast. That morning Max breaks up with his girlfriend because he only finds peace in his green-eyed guy friends gaze. At least he tired to tell himself he was just a friend. But by 3rd period our Cheerleader started to get dizzy and the football star couldn’t keep up the fake smile. 3 hour later mom didn’t get a call back from her interveiw and dad went to buy more beer. The baby didn’t recognize his parents after daycare. When Gabriella got home she ran up stairs to throw up her lunch. she wanted to be a flyer so she needed to be smaller. Just a couple more times hunched over the toilet till she meets her goal. By the time max got home he was tired of acting like everything was normal he was tired of hiding, tired of being something he wasn’t. he didn’t know how much longer he could keep this secret. as for Mom and dad they were tired of communicating without communication.
