All I can think about is that my mom texted me. I haven't seen or talked to her in so long and she just decides to text me? I haven't even read it.
"Kate....Kate...KATE." I got shook back into reality when I realized Carter was waving his hand in front of my face and saying my name.
"Oh...sorry. I'll be right back.. I need to go to the bathroom." I said forcing myself to smile and got up and walked to the bathroom in Starbucks.
I pulled my phone out and opened the text. I had to see what she said.
"Hey honey... I know you haven't heard from me in a very long time.. and I am sorry. I am sorry for everything. I'm sorry for leaving you stranded. I wanted you to know that the reason I left isn't because I wanted to.. I had to. I wasn't capable of raising you two, and I couldn't be around you because of the state I am in, I didn't want that to be the example set for you two. I just wanted to see how you're doing in life. I see your Facebook posts, it looks like you got a boyfriend. I am so happy for you, he seems really sweet. He better not hurt my little girl. I want to see you soon. I love you Kathrin."
Once I finished reading it I started crying. How can she think she can all of a sudden be back in my life? No. I can't do it.
I sucked it up and whipped off my tears and walked back out to the table where I left Carter.
"What's wrong?" He asked as soon as he saw me.
"Nothing I'm fine." I replied and fake smiled.
"Kathrin no, you're not, you've been crying and I can tell, and never fake smile to me, you can't lie to me." He said.
Then I just broke down.
"Babe come here." He said and hugged me.
"My mom...texted me." I said crying.
He didn't even have to say anything back, he just hugged me.
"Hey guess what? We're goona skip school and we are goona go out for a day together, you're goona forget about this all. Alright?"
I smiled at him and nodded my head, how can he be so perfect?
