13. Ellie-May.

I got in from work only to hear Ellie crying. The sort of crying where tears actually fall down her face. I threw my stuff onto my bed and ran up the stairs to see to her. My mum was already there, but i took her and hugged her and brought her downstairs where she stopped crying right away.

I want to be the uncle that can make her smile, no matter what is going through her mind. I feel like i'm deserting her. Her father doesn't pay her the attention she deserves, and it's not fair on my mum to be caring for her when she visits her father. 

My mum keeps telling me to make my dinner. I told her i'd rather watch Ellie sleep. It's more important.
