"You're lucky. Both of you. I just.. I want to know who my mom is. I need to know why she left me." I sigh, dumping sprinkles onto my Superman flavored ice cream. I've gotten the flavor since I was little, all because of it's 'pretty colors', Nash says.
"Hey, you can always have my mom." Nate jokes, "She always says she wants a daughter. Besides, you are named after her." That's me. Mahogany Jennifer Anderson.. Well, actually, now I'm Mahogany Jennifer Grier-Mendes. Since my mom left me with Nash, I live with him, and he legally has custody of me. My father and my uncle have joint custody though, so I'm Maggie Grier-Mendes.
"Hey, don't be down. It's your birthday!" Skylynn smiles and prods my arm. "I know.." I attempt a weak smile. "Come on, let's take it home." Nate says. "Yours or mine?" I ask.
We walk back there, and I change into sweatpants and a t shirt, and sit on his bed. "How about you two spend the night, and we can throw you a mini birthday party?" Asks Nate. "Sure. I just need to go home to grab some clothes. Come with?" I ask.
"Sure." We start to walk to my house, when we notice a weird car outside. "Who's here?" Nathan asks out loud, and I shrug and walk in.
We walk in and Nash and my dad are arguing with a woman. "Nash!" They can't hear me. "Dad! Uncle Nash! DAD!" I shout and all three of them to look at me.
"Uncle Nash, who's this?" I ask.
"Maggie.. this is your mom."
