    Yep, No Way.

    I'd rather live alone and homeless than have a family and live like the way my parents did. Even though they were successful in their own jobs, they were never suitable as parents. I will never be like them and I wouldn't want my kids to grow up like me. :P

    We Were Happy Family Until I Found Up The Truth.

    So all these times I was lied to. I used to think that my family is the happiest family that ever exist. I've known some of my friend's, and they're not like my parents. Mine is different. They just look so sweet, kissed everywhere, and so romantic. They look for us, their kids...
