12. The Parent Talk



After I got my order, I walked back to the gym. When I walked in, Bethany was lifting weights. I sat over in the corner at a table with Mike and ate my breakfast.

“What do you want with her?” Mike asked me suddenly. I looked at him and concern covered his eyes.

“I’m a friend.”

“Are you after her money? Most people who associate with her just want her money.”

“Sir, with all due respect, I’m a sighed singer…I don’t need her money.” Mike raised an eyebrow and nodded.

“Good- you better be good to her. She doesn’t really let anyone into her life. I don’t know what she’s told you-“

“Not much at all sir- just her name, age, her job, and where she lives.”

“Don’t let her push you away. She needs someone like you.”

“Push me away, sir?”

“She does that to a lot of people; it’s why she’s so alone.”

“I thought she liked being alone?”

“She thinks she likes being alone. But everyone needs someone to love at some point. You can’t be alone forever. I don’t want her to find that out too late.”

“Sir…I didn’t plan on going anywhere. I care for her very much.”

“I can tell- that’s why I’m telling you all of this now so it doesn’t come as a surprise.”

“You aren’t mad at me for being around her?”

“Not at all, Harry. She needs someone to care for her. She’s been caring for herself way too long.”

“How so…?” I asked slowly.

“Ask her.” Mike nodded towards Bethany and I turned my head. She was now working with the small punching bag. I watched as she concentrated hard on her swings. I wondered about her…she was defiantly going to take some time to figure out, but I had a feeling it would be worth it in the end.
