YOUTH chapter 16
after me and shawn left the bluff i decided i should probably go home. when i got home a few days ago my mom wasn’t there then i didn’t come home last night so my moms going to be super mad. i’m really regretting have to go back but i have to eventually so. “i’ll walk you home?” shawn asks hopeful with a smile on his face. “i’m sorry, i wish you could, but i think i’ll walk myself. thank you though” i couldn’t let my mom see me with shawn, she’s already gonna be fuming then plus her finding out i’ve been with a boy, she’ll kill me. “oh... okay” shawn looks disappointed but we shakes it off. “well i’ll see you sometime” he says and leans in and wraps his arms around me and gives me a big hug. i wrap my arms around his waist, and i smell the amazing scent of his cologne. “thank you for taking care of me” i lean back and give him a smug smile. “anytime” he returns the smile and we let go of each other. i wave bye to him as i open his front door, and he waves back at me. i walk out and close the door then begin the dreadful walk back to my house to my devil of a mother. - i reach my front door and dig for my key from my pocket. i pull it out and pick it into the lock. i then pull the key out and open the door revealing my furious and drunkened mother. “what the fuck! where the hell have you been! you fucking idiot!!” my mom pushed a vase full of flowers off a small table before she starts making her way to me. the vase shaders as soon as it hits the floor and the flowers scatter everywhere as does glass and water. “i was out with friends, mom. i was fine.” i say backing up from her. “i don’t give a shit where you were. honestly, for all i care you could’ve never came back. you worthless piece of shit.” i mom spits at me. she’s so bipolar.
my mom always says hurtful things to me and i’m used to it, but everything she says to me still hurts. i believe it always will, hearing your own mother tell these things to you hurts. bad.
