Little bro, I miss you more and more each day. Sometimes I feel guilty for moving away, but I'd feel even worse if I chose to stay. Little bro, you were too young to realize how Anchor City ruined everybody's lives, but now you're slowly seeing it with your own eyes. Oh, please don't ever think you caused me relocation. The Saturday cartoons, the wrestling and Playstation, the football in the park, the weird impersonations were all the brightest moments of each day, and we will do them all again someday. Little bro, I know you're growing up so fast. You're wrecking shop on the gridiron and in class. You've even found yourself a little bonnie lass; don't move too fast. Little bro, I know it kinda hurts to see the slow erosion of the love and unity between all of the grown-ups in the family. Oh please, don't ever think that I forgot about you: a tear for every day that I have spent without you. Continue to avoid the anchors all around you, and when it's time for you to get away, I'll have a place prepared where you can stay. I really miss you so much.
