Chapter 33 – Forgiveness and Stuff
Max continued to stare at me for quite a long time that I got slightly annoyed that I clicked my fingers in front of his face. He blinked “why?!” he asked me suddenly. I wasn’t listening. I was looking around for something “T?” asked Max. I was looking through a drawer so wasn’t listening to Max still and he got slightly annoyed at me “Tess?” asked Max again. I jumped and turned around to look at Max “yeah” I said causally “why forgive so quickly? After all the things she said to you. WHILE you were pregnant with Paris. You can’t forgive her this quickly” said Max “I know it was harsh words but Paris needs a grandmother. Stacey has one” I said “Stacey doesn’t” said Max “she does” I said “no she doesn’t” said Max “YES SHE DOES” I said sounding angry “no she doesn’t” answered Max “Max, she does” I said “Tess, she does” said Max “who?” I asked “her adopted gran” said Max “yeah, adopted gran, it doesn’t court” I said “it does” said Max “doesn’t” I said “does” said Max “doesn’t” I said sounding annoyed “she does T” said Max “okay, adopted yeah, but not blood” I said “still doesn’t court” I added “but they both need grandmothers” I said “but she left dad T” said Max “What Stacey? Or Paris?” I asked. Max rolled his eyes and sighed “no you idoit. Don’t be so stupid. Mum left dad” said Max “I know” I said “so you shouldn’t forgive mum so quickly” said Max “do I have to choose between dad and Paris?” I moaned and sounding upset “no, but you’re got to find a better way T” said Max trying to make me smile. I smiled at him “thank you” I said smiling at Max “I love you so much T” said Max “I love you so much more” I said “not even possible” said Max “I think it is” I said poking my tongue out “come with me” said Max grabbing me by my arm “where are we going?” I asked “we are going to go and ask Mike if you should forgive mum or not as you can’t choose” said Max “Max, don’t, this is hard enough without Mike making me choose too” I said “I know you don’t have to choose. You’ll be okay I promise T. you’ll choose the right thing to do” said Max

When we got into the kitchen, we went over to him “oh hey guys” said Mike as he was washing the dishes “T can’t choose” said Max “can’t choose what?” asked Mike “whether to forgive mum” said Max “we really need a dishwasher” said Mike “we do have one” I said cheekily “we do?!” asked Max looking at me “yeah, it’s Mike” I said cheekily and smiled at Mike. Mike raised his eyebrows and stopped washing a red plate but still had bubbles on his hands and smiled at me with evil eyes and I frowned at him and ran for it and Mike chased me.

When we got upstairs, Mike suddenly wrapped his arms around me so I couldn’t escape “Mike, let go” I said laughing and trying to escape. Mike started kissing my face, then my neck “oh Mike, that tickles” I said laughing “good” said Mike letting go. He poked his tongue out at me. I went all quiet. He looked at me “what’s up?” asked Mike “nothing” I lied “T?” he asked “yeah?” I said causally “what’s wrong?” asked Mike “nothing” I said slightly annoyed “it’s just” I said quietly “just what?” asked Mike “Max doesn’t think I should forgive mum but Paris needs a grandmother and Max and I came into the kitchen to ask you if I should or not” I said “I agree with Max” said Mike “why? Paris needs a grandmother” I said “she does have one” said Mike “no she doesn’t” I said “yeah she does” said Mike “who?” I asked “my mum” said Mike “oh” I said “yeah because we’re married now aren’t we?” I added now remembering “well done Emstein” said Mike teasily chapping his hands “why shouldn’t I forgive mum though?” I asked “because of all the harsh things and words she said to you while you were pregnant with Paris. T, she called you embarrassing. What sort of mother does that? Paris doesn’t need a grandmother like that and you don’t dervese a mother like that and you shouldn’t forgive her” said Mike “until she says sorry to you first” said Max coming over “I don’t think that’s ever going to happen guys” I said “she’s so stubborn, she doesn’t admit to anything wrong” I added “she might” I turned around to see my mum standing there. We didn’t speak for a few minutes, just stare at each other “oh, what are you doing here” I asked “I am here to say sorry and to hopefully have my daughter’s forgiveness” said my mum. I kept on staring at my mum but came forward and awkwardly give my mum a hug “thanks” said Mrs Harmer “Tessa?” asked Mrs Harmer “yes?” I asked not looking at my mum “I’m sorry” said Mrs Harmer “you should be” I said sounding angry “what you said to me was really harsh especially while I was pregnant” I added “I know it was really harsh. I’m really sorry, I felt really bad after I said all of it. I’m truly sorry Tess. Please” my mum begged. I didn’t say anything “please Tess” she said again. I just looked at her “Max doesn’t want me to forgive you” I said “since when did you listen to your brother?!” asked Mrs Harmer “BUT Paris needs a grandmother no matter what. So I’m only forgiving you for Paris. Not for us. Not for me. But for Paris, it’s too late to fix our relationship. You’re done something that I could never forgive you for” I said “Thank you Tess, thank you so much darling. Where is Paris?” asked Mrs Harmer “she’s in the kitchen on her play mat, with Max and Mike” I said and I went to the kitchen and my mum followed me.

We went over to Mike and Max and my mum saw Paris playing and bent down “hello Paris” said Mrs Harmer. Paris giggled and smiled at my mum “Paris Gabriella Lorelai Leigh Solis” I said proudly “very nice honey” said Mrs Harmer. I smiled at my mum “thank you” I said
Max and Mike came into the kitchen, saw my mum and came over to me and dragged me by my arm and led me into a corner “what’s mum doing here?” asked Max “she said sorry and I’ve forgiven her for Paris’s sake. I told her I’ve forgiven her for Paris. Not me. Not us. But Paris” I said. Both boys looked surprisly shocked at what I said. I looked at them “what?” I asked “well what you said … was very grown up to forgive Jane after what she said to you. Just for Paris … it was very grown up. Well done. That must have been really hard on you. I’m proud of you” said Mike “thank you” I said smiling “I’m so proud of you T. you’re the best big sister ever and the bestest friend in the entire world. I don’t want anyone but you to be my big sister and best friend. I love you so much” said Max “thank you Maxie, I love you so much too” I said smiling and hugged him “selfie?” asked Mike “I thought you’d never ask” I said getting my phone out of my bag and held it high but it didn’t work because I was so short “here, let me take it shorty” said Max taking my phone from me and we switched places and I stood next to Mike, wrapped my hands around his neck. Max found the camera, put it up high in the air and stood in front of me and Mike, so it was like a photobomb and said “smile”
