16. Everythings gonna be okay!

The door opened and a woman stepped forward out of the house. She was in an old nightgown. Her hair was brown with a lot of grey hairs. She had huge bags under her eyes and she looked older than 40 (the age my sister said she is). Everything about her looked worn out. "May I help you?" she said quietly. Her voice was raspy. "Um..," I said, "My name is Cassidy. I'm your other daughter. Liz told me you wanted to see me." Her eyes got bigger and she motioned me inside. I went in and closed the door. The place was a mess and smelled like cigarettes. She studied my face and tears came to her eyes. "I can't believe you're actually here," she said. She gave me a huge hug and held me tight. I felt awkward but I hugged her back. She separated and we sat on her couch. "So how are you? I've noticed you have a big shot boyfriend according to the TV," she said. "Yeah. Why did you want me to visit you?" I said. She sighed deeply. "I wanted to apologize. I know you hate me but I feel terrible for what I did. Leaving the family for drugs was the biggest mistake of my life. Now my health is all messed up and I don't have the money to pay the medical bills. I'm trying to live off of my credit cards and stuff but I'll have to pay eventually. The bottom line is, I'm so sorry Cassidy. I love you and I never meant to hurt you the way I did," she said. "You abandoned us mom. I had to grow up with my stepmom and she was terrible. My life was a living hell because of you. How can I be sure you actually love me when you never even attempted to contact me my whole life?" I said. Tears welled in her eyes. "I know," she said, "I'm so sorry. I was scared to contact you. I knew you guys would hate me for leaving your father without an explanation. I didn't want to interfere with your lives and make things complicated. I had to watch you grow up through pictures. Could you ever forgive me? Can we just start over? I want to be a part of your life. You're my daughter and I love you." I calmed down a little bit. This was the woman who caused that evil witch to move into my house and control me. She seemed sincerely sorry though. I glanced at her and she was crying into her hands. I sat next to her and put my arm on her shoulder. She looked up at me. "I forgive you," I said. She smiled and hugged me. I felt a tear roll down my cheek. After all this time I finally met my mother. I stayed for about 30 minutes longer and then I had to go. She knew I was going on tour so I gave her my number so she could call me. Liz drove me home and I waited patiently for Justin. He came and loaded his car with my stuff and we went to his house. Let my new life begin.
