Where did I go wrong?

It all started the day he took me. I would never forget his eyes, a nice shade of brown with a twinkle of success. But it all ended when I came home to the only family I had left, mom. She went through so much after dad disappeared and decided to take it out on me. I know she doesn't like him either. Will I ever get my fairy tale ending that I have always dreamed if or will she take over and control everything?

7. Chapter 7. Mom?!

Summer's P.O.V.

 

I woke up to the sun shining on my face. "ugh!" I groaned and got up to close the curtain. As soon as I laid back down I realized that I never opened them. "Wait. What?" I quickly sat up and looked around the room. This was strange everything was clean and put away. When I left the house there were clothes and shoes everywhere and the bathroom counter was completely covered with various makeup and hair stuff. Well I'm awake now. I got up and went downstairs for breakfast. 

 

Halfway down the stairs I started to smell it. I ran down the stairs and into the kitchen. I must be dreaming because there stood my mom making bacon. "Good morning." she smiled at me. "GOOD MORNING?!?! BREAKFAST?!?!" I screamed at her. "Yes, isn't that what mothers do?" she asked with a chuckle. Ok that was it I finally just exploded. "YES!! MOM!! THAT IS WHAT GOOD MOTHERS DO!! BUT YOU HAVEN'T BEEN A GOOD MOTHER!! YOU HAVE BEEN HORRIBLE EVER SINCE DAD DIED AND YOU TOOK IT OUT ON ME!!! Why the sudden change of heart?" I was almost in tears. She can't just act like she doesn't even care and treat me like I'm worthless and then just pretend nothing happened. "Look I know. I have been the worst mom ever and I don't have an excuse. I finally realized that I was going nowhere and that I wasn't caring for you. You were supporting me and I wasn't respecting you. I didn't even realize how much that love you and need you. And all I'm trying to do is start to fix thing. I'm so sorry fo-" I cut her off by hugging her as tightly as possible. Finally she was back and things were going to start to change.... I hope. "I'm glad to have you back mom. And yes it is going to take a lot more than sorry and breakfast to fix this but I'm willing to give you a chance. I love you too." By now we were both in tears. "Don't screw this up." I whispered more to myself. "I won't. I promise." 

 

After that we sat down and ate while we got caught up. It really did seem like she was tying to fix this. I'm so happy she's back. Now the only thing I still have to explain to her is Griffin. This might take a while. 

 

Hollie's P.O.V. (Summer's Mom)

 

I woke up early this morning and cleaned Summer's room for her. Then I went downstairs and started making breakfast. she came down and rushed into the kitchen just as I finished.  

"Good morning." I smiled at her after a few minutes of silence. "GOOD MORNING?!?! BREAKFAST?!?!" she screamed at me. "Yes, isn't that what mothers do?" I asked with a chuckle hoping we could forget everything. "YES!! MOM!! THAT IS WHAT GOOD MOTHERS DO!! BUT YOU HAVEN'T BEEN A GOOD MOTHER!! YOU HAVE BEEN HORRIBLE EVER SINCE DAD DIED AND YOU TOOK IT OUT ON ME!!! Why the sudden change of heart?" She was almost in tears now. I tried to start explaining, "Look I know. I have been the worst mom ever and I don't have an excuse. I finally realized that I was going nowhere and that I wasn't caring for you. You were supporting me and I wasn't respecting you. I didn't even realize how much that love you and need you. And all I'm trying to do is start to fix thing. I'm so sorry fo-" she cut me off by giving me a tight hug. then sh stood back and smiled at me. "I'm glad to have you back mom. And yes it is going to take a lot more than sorry and breakfast to fix this but I'm willing to give you a chance. I love you too." We were both in tears now. My daughter forgave me even when I deserve to be left here  alone . "Don't screw this up." she whispered to herself. "I won't. I promise." I whispered back.

 

After that we just sat down and ate breakfast while we got caught up on each others lives. I was finally able to talk to her without hurting her.
