My name is Leah and I am 18 years old. I have one brother, Tyler, who is completing his sophomore year at an out-of-state Ivy League College. My mother is like most mothers. She is after me to make a decision as to what I am going to do now that I have graduated from high school. I can’t decide if I want to go to college or venture into some thing else. My best friend, Zoey, is a model. I have always wanted to do some modeling but I know from listening to Zoey it can be a rigorous profession, assuming I could even get my foot in the door.
Zoey has been modeling since she was 16. She has told me I would have no problems making it as a model. She has an agent and everything. Zoey said her agent will help me if I really want to go into modeling. Zoey showed her agent my Senior high school portraits and he told her I would have no trouble getting into the business. He said I have the body to be a swimsuit model. At 5’7″ I am just barely tall enough. Zoey said the advertisers would fall in love with my straight long blonde hair that touches the top of my waist. I have blue eyes and my complexion is pretty good. My breasts fill a C cup bra and are big enough to fill out a swimsuit top nicely and not overfill it.
Zoey and I look like sisters except she is two inches taller, with beautiful shoulder length auburn hair, green eyes and B cup breasts. She is envious of my slightly larger boobs, but I don’t see a lot of difference. We go everywhere together. Zoey has a brother who is the same age as my brother. Our brothers were good friends all through high school.
Zoey and Caleb have always been very close. I always have thought he is hot. He is handsome guy who is actually not a jerk. I have told her many times how handsome I think her brother is.
The last time I said something about her brother she said, “Girl, your brother is pretty hot himself.” I have to admit Tyler is a hunk, but he is my brother. Zoey made the comment, “I wish you and Tyler were as close as Caleb and I are.”
I said, “Zoey, I know you two have always had a special relationship. Do you think it is because of you loosing your parents when you were in grade school?”
“Yea, probably so. When that happened we just had each other. That is when we moved here to live with our aunt and uncle. It was the two of us against the world, or so it seemed at the time. Caleb has always been there for me. Even when we were little he thought it was his job to protect me. Don’t get me wrong, I love my aunt and uncle and it had to have been a huge change in their lives to suddenly have to raise two kids who had just lost their parents. Aunt Sue had just lost her brother, my father, and here us two kids were dropped on them to raise. They are wonderful people and I will always be thankful for what they did for us.”
“That is cool. Tyler and I get along great, don’t get me wrong, but we are just not as tight as you and Caleb. I know all siblings have problems, but for the most part Tyler and I have always been pretty close.”
Zoey said, “Hey I don’t mean to be nosy, but I know you said Tyler is coming home from school for the summer.”
“That’s right he is supposed to be here Friday night.”
“Yea, that is sort of what I was wondering about. Didn’t your mom start using his bedroom for her crafts last Fall when he left for school?”
“Yes she did. I told her it was a mistake, but she did not listen.”
In a lowered voice she asked, “So where is Tyler supposed to sleep?”
I was afraid this topic was going to come up. I should have known it could not be avoided, especially with Zoey. I can talk to Zoey about anything, but this was one topic I really didn’t want to discuss. I was looking down into my lap fiddling with my fingers trying to ignore the question.
