Desperate - Part 1
I paddled as fast as the bike could go. I wanted to tell Mom and Dad that I found a stable where I would really like to ride. I turned into the driveway of our house then skidded to a stop, opened the garage door and pushed the bike in.
Running up the porch, I unlocked the door. "Hey Mom." I smiled. "Is dad here?" I asked taking my shoes off then putting them on the porch. "Ummm... " Mom started to say. She walked over, guilt on her face. "Honey there is something I got to tell you."
I walked over to where she was, thoughts racing through my mind. Was dad in a car accident? Did someone shoot him? Mom sat down on the couch. She looked like she was going through WW2. I slipped in the seat next to her. "What's wrong?" I asked. Tears slid down her face.
I twirled her hair then put my finger out of her hair, so it was a curly. "Your dad decided to break up with me even though I didn't do anything bad to get him upset!" She burst out, tears streaming down her face.
I couldn't get it. The dad that never forgot to say I love you when it was time to go to sleep, the dad that bout a 326-bucket full of bubble gum didn't want us anymore.
"Dinner is almost ready so you better wash up." Mom said trying to sound stronger than she really was. I still had a puzzled face then Mom said, "what was the thing you wanted to tell me?"
"Oh!" I said, surprised that I forgot to tell her "Well..." I began while I skipped to the sink. "I found a stable that is called Red Creek Stables and I would really like to try to ride there since I rode horses before at the old home." I said caching my breath.
"Why not?" Mom said joyfully. "It would be great and maybe you will make some friends?" Mom said. "Oh Mom." I said. We both laughed. "Thanks."
