This chapter is a little boring.
When I told Jason & Nick that I fixed everything with
there mother and told them we were married and having another
baby I didn't expect them to choke and look at me like I was
"Wtf it took you two years to do that and she's pregnant
I didn't like the tone he was using but I decided to not get
mad and make everything worse.
"Yes it did take us that long sadly and yes she's pregnant
again she's not that old"
He got up from the table and ran from the kitchen.
"Nick wait I thought this would be good news for you"
"Well guess what its not, she left for two years and didn't
even bother staying in contact, you've been a total dick head to
me for the past two years, and she's pregnant again I can't wait
to see how you treat it."
"Nick please I'm sorry I wish I could change everything, Nick
I just want to make everything with us alright again I-"
"Save it for someone who cares"
He ran from the house, I ran to the window and watched him
speed off down the street I heard Jason going up the stairs and
slam his door.
Fuck I though this was suppose to be good news. I sat down
for and hour or two waiting for nick back. I better go looking
for him I told Jason to stay here incase he came back, I drove
everywhere I could think of that he would be I even looked in
places I knew he wouldn't be I even got out of the car and
searched every where, I kept searching till the sin came up, my
heart was pounding harder every time I couldn't find him or I
thought of never seeing him again. I called it quits for now I'm
driving home and calling the cops that's probably the first thing
I should have done.
John* did he come home yet?
Jason* no not yet where the hell could he be
John* I don't know but I'll take another look around before
Again I looked everywhere I could think of then I wasn't
thinking straight I was filled with worry for my youngest son out
there somewhere dead or dying. After looking everywhere again and
not finding him I drove back to the house I didn't bother putting
my car in the garage I just left it in the drive way.
"Jason I think its time to call the cops I can't find him
Then almost like a miracle I heard Nicks voice.
"I'm fine dad I just fell asleep at the park"
I tripped over my own feet and hit the floor with a bang but I
got up faster then I thought possible and ran into the living
room where I found him sitting on the floor I ran over and pulled
him into a tight hug I was relieved that Nick was hugging me back
when I pulled away I could feel myself smiling like a fool.
"You actually called me dad, do does this mean forgive
"Yeah dad I forgive you"
I was so happy it was unbelievable everything was working out
for the best I was getting my family back together Nick was Home
safe and forgiving me and Jason.
"Well I'm going to my room"
"Jason do you mind making something for dinner I'm going to
sleep for awhile"
I fell into a deep dreamless sleep after about two hours sleep
I went down stairs to watch tv with Jason, Nick came down after a
while with a stressed expression on his face he ate then sat down
on the couch and stared at the screen for a few minutes then just
looked out the window.
"Nick are you ok?"
"Hmmm yeah I'm fine"
"What's bothering you son?"
"I'm worried about Abby"
"Because I think some ones hurting her but she wont tell me
who or if someone is, but the other day Jake just nudge her in
the ribs a tiny bit and she screamed, I went after her and she
ended up crying off her cover up, and her face was full of
bruises so was her arms you could see some ones finger prints
bruised into her arms"
I could feel my stomach turning I felt totally disgusted.
"Nick why didn't you tell somebody, you need to help her"
"I know I do and the only proof I have is the bruises on her
body but she made up the excuse she was jumped, I don't know
who's doing this to her or how long its been going on and its
"Maybe she really did get jumped"
"Yeah Maybe but that doesn't explain why she turns up with a
split lip everyone and then"
"Nick you should tell someone, go to the police and get them
to do an investigation"
"I can't she won't admit it plus if I did that she would never
speak to me again, maybe if I just give her time she'll tell
"Maybe son but don't wait to long something serious could
"I know dad oh and both of you don't mention anything like
that when she comes over"
""Alright, go get some sleep you look like you could use
Abby is being abused, she wont admit it because she's scared
or embarrassed its common, but I can't get Nick to go the police
until he has all the proof I fell asleep thinking of that poor
