Family Fondness

Well, my name's Ami, and I am eighteen. This is really wrong, I know, but I think I'm in love with my cousin. He is my third cousin, but I see him at almost all of my family get togethers. I don't know. Most times I am really good at keeping things under control, but I find myself following him around my grandma's house. We have almost everything in common. Just to sit next to him and to see him makes my heart beat faster. Shawn is twenty-one. I think he loves me too, but he is too shy to say so, as am I. We can sit there watching TV, not saying anything to one another, and still have a good time. I don't know what to do. Should I tell him or not?

— Ami, 18
