#2 Love

| November 3, 2010 | 0 Comments

Morgan’s little sister – an adorable lively bundle of energy with extreme anger and violence just below the surface. To anyone not paying attention she seems to be a fairly normal 10 ½ year old girl with her love of unicorns and rainbows. However if someone spent some time with her they would realize how mature she can be at times and recognize her unusual grasp of complicated matters with surprise.

Love has a lot of difficulty, especially after her mother’s death, controlling her rage. Her father assumes this is directly linked to her mother’s death but that is only half of the issue. Love herself has no idea what secretly hides in her genetics making her far more dangerous and powerful than any of her peers. She only knows that when she gets angry she is very fast and strong and fights against the urge to tear a chunk of flesh from her enemy at the time. Often she feels the urge to be outside running and playing in the nearby forest, feeling most at home there and now that her mother is gone she has to remind herself to go home to her family.

Love feels extremely sad that her mother is gone and misses her everyday and often falls asleep crying wishing she would come back to life and be with her again. She loves her father but was especially close to her mother and feels lost without her, almost like a twin would feel if separated from the other. Love truly believes that no one except her mother understood and accepted her completely, even knowing her dark tendencies.

Love adores her sister and wants so much to be more like her even though a part of her understands this could never happen. Morgan is a healer and caretaker – Love is a fighter. The strength of her own will sometimes scares even her and without her mother to help guide her she is not sure what will happen to her now. Love finds that she thinks about things like that at night after her father has tucked her in and left the room, she sometimes wonders if he stayed longer maybe she would not think about things like that. She knows it is hard for her father to look at her now because she and her mother looked so much alike and her face reminds him. Because of this she tries to distance herself from her father not waiting to cause him more pain but this only makes her feel more alone.

Sometimes she gets mad at her little brother Ryan because she blames him for her mother’s death, even though the two are not related. In her mind her mother would not have been working late that night if it wasn’t for him and her mother not wanting him in daycare. The only reason Love has not acted out against him is because she fears what trouble she would get into and because she does not want to upset her dad or Morgan.

In an effort to keep Love out of trouble, her father placed her in anger management with the guidance counselor. Love learned very quickly what she should or should not say and is teaching herself how to internalize her feelings so that they will not cause more problems, not understanding what that will eventually do to her. Recently she has begun to act out more in macabre ways then anger, drawing more concern from Morgan and her father, though not realizing it yet.
