"Your married?" Susan stuttered out. I looked around and saw everyone's shocked faces. I then looked at the computer an saw Maria's smiling face turn to a worried frown.

"That's great I'm so happy for you!" I said standing up and hugging Samuel. He smiled again but you could tell it was forced the girl on the computer smiled again when I crouched down and waved at her. She was tan and had short black hair she had really good complexion pretty much on from that I couldn't tell.

I walked to Jace's side and kicked him shaking him back to earth."We are all happy for you, right Jace?" I looked down at him and smiled putting my hand on his shoulder and squeezing has hard as I could.

"Y-yea I mean wow." Jace said.

"Real settle genius." I mumbled under my breath.

"That's not all." Samuel said looking at everyone nervously.

"What?" John asked rubbing his face in the palm of hands.

"Stand up sweetheart." Samuel said. The tan girl stood up and you could see she was about 7 or 8 months pregnant. "Your grandparents and an uncle. We have been married for 2 years and we never had a wedding just went to the court house. I came down here to give you guys an invitation good thing I brought an extra for you Kate."

"Can I sit down now?" Maria asked.

"Oh yes of course sorry love." he stumbled out turning the computer.

"Susan are you ok you haven't said anything throughout this whole dinner?" John asked.

"Fine." was all she said then got up and left.

John got up and and started after her,"Wait John I'll talk to her." I said then going after her.

I found her sitting outside by the pool. "You ok?" I asked sitting beside her and rolling my pants up to stick my feet in the water beside hers.

"I'm angry." was all she said.

"Why." I asked.

"Because my son ran off and stopped conversation with us for years. He left when he was 13 years old and went to live with my sister Amelia he doesn't know I know but when he got there se called me. It scared me how he got there but I was glad he made it safe. He got married and now she's pregnant." She put her head in her hands and cried. I put my hand on her back and patted it.

"I understand why your upset but now he obviously wants to make amends." I said.

"Maybe your right." she said looking over at me.

"Course I am." I smiled over at her.

"Come on I need to apologize to my son." she said standing up and slipping her shoes back on. I followed after her unrolling my pants.

"Mom." Samuel said coming to us.

"Honey I need to talk to you." she said and they walked towards the living room. I made my way back to the dining room.

"Dad what has he done?"i heard.

"Sshhh this is his choice just be glad he is back. Now hush before your mother hears. There was a groan from what I assumed was Jace. I walked in and sat down taking a bite of my food and finding it cold. The guys in the room just looked at me

"What?" I asked.

"How can you eat at a time like this?" Jace asked.

"Simple." I said taking a bite of food and chewing it in front of him. "Your brother is getting married the world isn't ending." I said between bites of food.

"Umm hello?" came a small girly voice.

"Shit y'all didn't turn the computer off!" I yelled and ran to the computer that was on the table across the room."Sorry sorry but bye." I said shutting the computer off disconnecting the call.

"We didn't know." John started.

"Yea you didn't know you both were to wrapped up in your conversation to shut It off. Whatvere you talked about you better pray she didn't her all of it because from the little bit I heard it wasn't something she was supposed to her." I said then turned to the stairs in the kitchen and went to my room.

This family is way to much I've had enough drama to last a life time. I slung myself onto my bed and saw my open computer flashing. "Great another video call." I mumbled to myself and clicked the accept button.

"Hey sweetheart!" my mom said.

"Mom!I'm so happy to finally see you again!" I yelled to her.

"I've missed you love." she said smiling.

"I've missed you guys to. How's dad?" I asked getting hopeful that he is getting better.

"Um." she looked behind her then back at me. "He's doing fine."

"Mom I don believe you what's really going on?" I asked searching the background to get a clue about what's going on.

"You know it's been a few weeks and your father well they have given him some new medicine an didn't work out as well as we hoped and he's in a coma." By the end of the sentence she was crying and looking behind her.

"I want to see him." I said.

"I don't think."

"I don't care I want to see him! u want to see my father!" I screamed not caring to upset and wanting to see him. My mother turned the computer and I saw him laying in the hospital bed "How could you. How could you let them do this!?" I choked out.

"They think he will wake up soon." my mother said turning the computer around and trying to make it better.

"Stop lying to me I'm not a child anymore. I can handle this." I bit out

"He will wake up I promise." she said.

"Just stop mother just stop lying." I said as closed te computer ending the call.

I got up and stumbled to my bathroom throwing cold water on my face. But it didn't help the tears still came and I after an hour I found myself on the floor not being able to hold the tears back I cried until I finally found myself asleep.

"Kate are you ok?!" I heard a frantic voice.

"What time is it I said opening my eyes and looking into Jace's endless depths that were his eyes.

"It's 12 in the afternoon. Mom got worried and told me to check on you." he explained.

"Where am I?" I asked confused on why I was lying on literally the cold hard ground.

"Your on your bathroom floor wanna explain why to me." he asked.

I generally had no idea I couldn't remember last night like I'm dealing with the after affects of drinking alcohol. Then it hit me with as much full force as it could have had, my dad is in a coma and my mom kept lying to to keep me from finding out.

That was when the never ending tears started again and this time I had Jace to cry on. And that's what I did but instead of pushing me away like I figured he would he wrapped his arms around me. After awhile he picked us both up and brought me to what I assumed was my bed and laid us both down.

He let me cry until the years couldn't come anymore and after they stopped I fell asleep. Sadly the dreams weren't happy and laleyga if that's even a word no they were nightmares and all were about me losing my father.
