Acceptance - Part 2

My mother looked at me with confusion, sadness, and anger all wrapped into one and said, "Your father has left." At first I asked, "left to go where?" She laughed and said, San Francisco. I didn't know what to say. I ran up stairs, slammed my door, and blasted the radio. I looked out the window and thought to myself, how could he just leave without saying goodbye? I had so much to tell him and say.

Right when I felt a tear rolling down my cheek my mother opened the door and said, "sweetie, I know you are sad, but you have to learn that this is life, it's just going to be you and me." I didn't want to talk to her right now. I didn't even want to look at her. But I did anyways, I changed the topic to something better. "I got a job at the horse stable, I am supposed to start tomorrow, after school at around 5:00." My Mother stared at me blankly and said, "That is great honey, but remember, school always comes first." That is the number one thing my mom says.I looked at her with an annoyed stare and said quietly, "I know."

She smiled her sweet smile and walked out of the room.

The next morning I woke up at 6:30 to get ready for school. I couldn't wait for 5:00. I ran downstairs, grabbed my backpack, and apple, and kissed my mom goodbye. I was stepping onto the bus when I saw him. His perfect hair, eyes, smile, personality, and laugh. The smoothest move I could ever do was trip over myself.

My best friend, a guy, Justin, helped me up laughing cause he knew I was in love with this guy, Brady. We got to school and the whole way there I was telling Justin about the job I got. He didn't seem very interested, but he said he was sorry about my Dad. I stepped out of the bus and walked into school, apparently staring at him again. First hour had come and gone, just like all of my other classes.

It was the last hour of the day and Brady and Justin were in my Science class. I sat next to Justin, passing notes the whole time. He asked me about the barn and I told him about the girl I ran into that had that snobbish rude stuck-up attitude. He laughed and said, just stay strong. Class ended and I was on the bus again.

I got home and it was 4:30. Rushing up stairs I grabbed my clothes, changed in 30 seconds, and rode my bike to the barn. My mom was going to be late again, she had to work the night shift at the hospital again. When I got there, Cindy was waiting for me. She smiled and said,"welcome! I am glad you could make it!" I smiled and nodded.

When I got in there, she told me I could water all the horses and that she would be right back. I grabbed the hose and started filling buckets. It was then that she walked in, same outfit, but this time, no whip. "Are you sure you know how to use one of those, stable girl?" She asked in that stuck-up voice. I am pretty sure, is this how you use it? I started spraying her with the hose as she was screaming in disbelief. "To water the pretty flower," I said snickering. "Ugh! You are the meanest girl I know!"

She stomped out of the barn, sopping wet. Then I heard this rustle ling from outside. I turned off the hose and looked outside, it wasn't that bright out anymore. When I turned the corner, sitting in the cold, no blanket, warmth or anything, was a............ TO BE CONTINUED!!!!!!!
