……………. I looked at the incoming number and smiled at Jess’s picture
Me * hey Jess
Dad * I borrowed your sister’s phone
Me * what the hell?
Dad * Please Chris don’t hang up on me
Me * give me one damn good reason why no… after Seattle.
Dad * I know I was just hurting
Me * you were hurting! You and the woman that’s supposed to be my mother attacked me. You admitted you knew it all and had decided to ignore that hurt like hell, My Mother I expected it from
but for you to be the one that rubbed salt into my wounds.
Dad * I know sweetheart
I cringed at the use of the word that Chad used for me so often
Me * Look just tell me what the hell you want?
Dad * I’m getting married
Me * to the blonde with the fake tit’s?
Dad * her names Tamara
Me * I don’t really give a damn what her name is she’s what 20?
Dad * she’s 23 and really from what I heard that guy that you’re hanging out with is what 40
Me * you really don’t want to go there you have nothing to do with my life anymore
Dad * I’m trying to make amends for what happened
Me * and I’m trying to deal with my family turning on me when I really needed them… and what the hell are you doing with Jess?
Dad * I still live close to her and I still love he, it was hard when your Mom wanted to divorce and when you left to god knows where
Me * it’s my job
Dad * dressing like a hooker and dancing round on stage
I slid down the wall and pinched the bridge of my nose
Me * yeah I know that’s why I bagged a rock star he pays me to be with him and screw his brains out every night… I don’t have to justify my life to you and I’m not going to. If Jess is okay
with you in her life then it’s her choice, but as far as I’m concerned you burned every bridge you had with me… How could you pretend everything was okay after you knew it all…? How could you look
me in the eye and play ignorant of everything…? I swear to good if you ever fuck with Jess like you did with me I will ruin you… I will come after you with every means I have.
Dad * but…
Me * but nothing Daddy Good luck with the wedding… I have my real family round me every day people that care about me and actually want to give a damn about what hurts me, I have brothers that take
care of me and a husband that loves me.
Dad * Husband he’s my age
The scoffing tone in my Dad’s voice really pushed me the wrong way
Me * Chad’s 36 not 46 and like I said I do not have to ask your permission.
I hung up the phone and rested my head against my knees, I took a deep breath and looked back to my phone and started to send Chad a text.
*Any chance that we can go dancing tonight? I need a release… I love you*
I hit send and got to my feet, putting the perfect Stage smile on my face and walked back into the others, Kerion walked over to me, his brow furrowed with worry making me smile… everything I’d
said to my Dad about having people that actually cared and gave a damn.
“Okay no crying” He said trying not to sound as worried as he looked he moved to block me from peoples view “Please tell me it wasn’t him calling again” I blinked.
“Which him” I sighed wrapping my arms round Kerion “Any chance of a hug?”
“Of course and I was trying not to say Arron’s name”
“Let’s talk about this in the car” I pulled back from him “and it wasn’t Arron” I assured him and watched as he let out a deep sigh. Whatever was thrown at me I had good people round me now
that I was more than sure of……..
