Silently, I trudged over to the exit of the park and began the
walk up the road to my house. I heard a door slam and I sighed
heavily to myself. Finally, I reached the door to my house.
Reluctantly, I opened the door and stepped in.
"I'm home!" I yelled.
"Hey babeh!" My mum called drunkenly. I shook my head slowly and
trudged upstairs. I kicked my trainers off and fell back onto my
bed. I heard my little sister, Jenny, squeal in delight as she
came plodding into the room like a penguin. I smiled slightly as
she came over to me and laid down next to me on my bed. I closed
my eyes and thought about Lucy. Beautiful, beautiful Lucy. I felt
a grin spread across my face. I could literally hear her sweet,
soft calming voice echoing over and over again in my ears.
"Bennyy!" Lucy's angelic voice was overruled by my mums drunken
slurring. My expression disappeared from my face completely as
did my happiness.
"What, mum?!" I answered, my voice showing my irritation.
"Your dad is being a cunt again. He thinks I should stop
drinking! Can you believe that?! He said if I don't stop then
he'll chuck me out onto the streets! What do you think I should
do?" My mums voice was more sober now than when I'd first came
in. I opened my eyes and glared at her.
"You need to stop drinking mum," I replied numbly and closing my
eyes again, wishing she would just go away.
"Really? Why?" She asked me. I sighed and inwardly shook my head.
"Because you have a drinking problem. And I met a girl today but
until you are sober, she can't step foot anywhere near this house
or even know the slightest detail about where I live!" I said,
"Really babe? Okay then, I'll see a councillor (sp?) and I'll
stop drinking. I can't wait to meet this girl!" my mum replied
excitedly and I heard her footsteps finally leaving my room. Once
her words had sunk in, I sat up immediately, my eyes widening.
"She is SO not meeting Lucy, EVER!" I said to myself whilst
shaking my head, trying to clear my mum's words from my memory.
