Between Two Brothers

Written by Crystal Allen

Isaiah (Ice) and Seth have always been very close. Ice loves his brother Seth so much. Seth is always patient and kind to him. Even took him for his fresh birthday cut. One day they argue and Ice pops him in the mouth and splits his lip. Ice decides he will apologize to him after school. Unfortunately, Seth is in a car accident while Ice is in school. When he and his parents rush to the hospital, they find out that Seth’s brain is swelling. What about his scholarship? When will Ice get Seth back? How is he going to apologize? The doctor says that Seth may never come back. Ice and his brother’s friend Juan Carlos refuse to believe that his brother isn’t in there and they do everything in their power to get Seth back with the family. Although Seth is permanently changed, he does come back enough for everyone in his family to know that Seth is still with them. This is a new reality that still has Seth in it. Even with their new reality, they are still a family.
