The Unwanted Stepbrother: A Tale of Unyielding Resistance

In a world where 'family' is being redefined, our young hero, 'Reluctant Stepbrother', finds himself at odds with his mom's vision of their new blended family. He's not buying the idea of accepting his bully of a classmate as a brother, just because their parents tied the knot. Despite his mom's pleas and attempts at creating bonding moments, he stands his ground, refusing to let the unwanted stepbrother infiltrate his social circle or disrupt his Halloween plans. 🎃 His mom's disappointment doesn't shake him, as he firmly believes that a marriage certificate doesn't necessarily make a family. The question remains - is he being too harsh or simply standing up for himself? Let's see what the internet has to say about this...
