16. Fifteen

Linda and dad came through the front door. I was surprised to see them back so soon. “Hey, girly, Hey Shay,” Linda said putting her suitcase down on the ground.

“Hey Linda, Hey Dad, What are you doing back so soon?”

“There was a huge storm coming so we decided to leave before it hit,” my dad explained, “also you are graduating next week and I don’t want to miss it.”

I smiled, he is the best. Brielle slept over too but she was in the other room asleep. She fell asleep couple hours ago. Brielle has a hard time falling asleep. She has been stressful for the last couple of days. I haven’t seen Joshua ever since Saria’s funeral. I felt a lump in my throat when I thought of it. I got out of Shays lap and walked to my room. I see Brielle passed out on my bed. I shock her and whisper, “Brielle, Brielle wake up!”

“Five more minute mom,” she turned over a little too much and fell off the bed, “ouch, ugh, fine I will get up now.”

I laughed and went to the living room again. I saw Mrs. Frye. Shay looks at her angrily. “What are you doing her, Clair?” Shay said her real name in disgusted.

“I wanted to say I’m sorry. I brought over a picture of you and Trey. I kept in my night stand ever since you left, Shay,” she explained, handing him a worn out picture.


“I miss you boys so much. I would take anything to get you boys back into my life. It broke me when you left, but shattered when Trey died. I missed you boys so much. I wanted to see you again. That’s why I invited you over so many times but, your father ruined it. I wanted to be in your life again.”

“He isn’t my father, anymore. Why did you let him kick me out? Why did you let him clear out Treys room?”

“He can do whatever he wanted Shay. He would of done it sooner but he didn’t because I love you. When he found out you got Ava pregnant he had an excuse. If I didn’t go along with it he would of left me. Him and you boys were the only ones I had left. He would have put us out on the street. I knew that Ava’s parents would let you stay with them so I knew you were safe. I was and always be proud of you Shay. You proved your father wrong. You are more of a man then he will ever be. I loved Trey, too. I wished he didn’t have to go the way he did but he is in a better place like, Saria, I missed that little girl with all my heart. I wasn’t to see her everyday but Thomas wouldn’t let me. He never let me do anything that involved you boys. I also have to tell you something Shay. It might explain why, Thomas.”

“What is it, mom?”

“Thomas isn’t your real father.”

“Wait, what do you mean?”

“Your real father had to go into the army. When I found out that I was pregnant with Tray. I told him the same day he was ecstatic. He was coming home in a month. He loved you so much. The next day he died in combat. A year later I meet Thomas. He didn’t want children, but he still loved me and would accept you boys. He hated the fact that I loved you boys more then I loved him.”

“So that’s why he has been making my whole life a living hell?”

“Yes dear, I am sorry I did that to you and your brother. I regretted marrying him But now after I saw you this last time. I’ve made my decision.”

“That is?”

“I am leaving him. He can’t do that to my son. I don’t care what he does now. You will always be my son no matter what you do. Ava was a pretty girl. I loved her like my own daughter. It tore me to pieces when she did that. I love you Shay.”

“I love you too mom.”

They were family again. It made my heart warm up. “Why don’t you stay with us for dinner Clair,” My dad cut in.

A family is back together, again. The turning point in the process of growing up is when you discover the core of strength within you that survives all hurt.
