Like children * Complete *

We all made choices we regret; choices that tear us apart. We deplore them so much we wish we could start all over again.
But even with a second chance, can what has been broken be fixed?


14. Chapter 13

I sit up ignoring the pain and look up. Right next to me is standing Niall’s mother. What is she doing here? Or what am I doing at her house?

“Maura?” I stutter with many efforts. She nods and puts her hand on my shoulder which makes me wince. Why am I feeling so weak?

“What were you doing, lying in the snow in the night?” she asks me hastily, looking worried. She has been like a mother to me; I liked her a lot. When we were little I always liked going at Niall’s house because his mother was always nice to me. It has been years since I last saw her.

“I...I fell,” I reply not answering her question.

“Come on, Eileen. There must be a reason why you were out so early in the morning. Don’t lie, sweetie.” A warm smile appears on her face.

“I just went for a walk. I wanted to think about a few things; you know about school and all.” It is not convincing enough but that’s all I can think of. She raises an eyebrow; she must know I am lying.

“I called your father; he will come soon,” she changes subject before walking away.

I don’t move; looking ahead right where she had stood up. Should I have told her the truth? After all I know her since years and Niall is her son.

Soon afterwards, the doorbell rings. I feel relieved; it must be dad. But what is he going to say? I would have to explain him then...

But the voice I hear isn’t Dad’s.

“It’s so great to be back home!”
