It was 18th October 2010. That was the day my life fell apart. Mum was about to leave the house. It was ten in the evening in October. It was dark. Why is she going out in the dark? I wondered. Maybe mum was going to the car? But she never took the keys. I could have just left it. I could have gone to sleep, but I wanted to know. I am the suspicious type, so I thought it was a bit weird. I hate the dark really. It was firework season, so you could hear, so you could hear loud popping noises. It was scary, because you'll look up and think the fireworks are over your head. So anyway, I followed her, secretly.
Guess what? She didn't go into the car, but she went into someone's car. It was a silver ford focus, and it looked familiar... Like Mr Nate's. He is my science teacher. Why would mum be in his car? I took a look and she... She was cheating on dad with Mr Nate! In anger and rage, I took a picture, and the next day, I printed it out. I figured that I could use it to black mail her. Do not give me that look. I know she is my mum, but she deserves it!
