This story is officially written By: Faith Lucky.
After the incident that happened– when I showed mom the picture, she suddenly looked depressed, like she was trying hard to fight some demons.
She wouldn’t talk to me including grandma– she wouldn’t talk to either of us.
I suddenly felt sad and guilty because perhaps, showing her the picture brought back bad memories.
I’ve never seen mom being sad and withdrawn the way she is presently.
She’d go to work in the morning before even grandma or I would even be awake and return back at night when grandma and I would have gone to bed.
She barely eat and the day I had gotten to fortunately meet her before she left for work, she already emaciated and she looked pale too.
What’s eating mom up, that I don’t know.
“What do you think is wrong with your mother? She’s been acting weird these days and she wouldn’t even talk to me.
Do you have any idea what exactly is wrong with her?” Grandma asked worriedly as we sat on the dinning table eating dinner without mom.
I cleared my throat and drank a little from my water, before turning to look at my grandma.
I know there’d be no use lying to her. She needs to at least know what I think has to do with mom’s recent behaviour.
I might not be entirely right about mom acting that way because of the picture, but I think it has to do with that picture.
There’s something she isn’t telling me and I won’t force her about it.
“Well grandma, two, or three days ago– can’t really remember exactly when, I wanted to clean mom’s dusty drawer and in the process of bringing out some papers, a picture fell off.
I picked it up and it was the picture of mom and a man– I think I know, or maybe I’m sure he is the one, the way they had posed and held themselves, I could tell instantly that they were probably lovers.
The guy actually looks just like my grade mate father mom and I bumped into some weeks back.
And when mom returned back home, I confronted her but she was angry.
I asked her if the guy was my father but she was really angry.
She took the picture with her and left the kitchen.
And that was it. Since then, I think she started being this way because of what perhaps the picture held– the memories.
I feel sad grandma, because I’m the reason mom’s acting this way.” I explained and bursted into hot tears.
“Shuu Alicia, don’t blame yourself. If really perhaps the picture has to do with your mom’s recent behaviour, she’d definitely come around.
Don’t feel sad because you didn’t do anything wrong.” Grandma cooed and walked to my seat. She wrapped her arms around my neck: behind me and kissed my hair.
“Thank you grandma. I feel at peace a little because of your kind words.
I just hope mom would come around because I haven’t seen her this way before.” I sniffed in my tears and wrapped my hands on her arms around my neck.
“It’s okay, stop crying and eat your food.” She patted my back and went back to her seat.
I nodded my head and went back to my meal, but this time, I didn’t have much appetite, I just forced myself to eat it.
“I’m sorry mom, I’m really sorry if I made you angry because of the picture I showed to you. I don’t like seeing you like this.
I missed your lively self. I’m really sorry.” I apologized, with my hands clasped together and with a sad puppy face.
“I’m not angry with you Alicia. And I’m sorry for shutting you out because of something that didn’t really worth it.” Mom smiled and pulled me into a big hug.
“Thank you mom. I love you.”
“I love you too.”
School was normal as usual. I haven’t had any friends yet– just Rio.
He’s nice and he joins us to eat during lunch.
Chelsea still glares at me and this time around, I noticed her smirk has grown wider.
She always wore this triumphant look anytime our gazes lock.
But she’s the least of my problems. I do t give a damn to her.
After closing, Xavier said he wanted to ride with Rio because they would be going out. I was left alone to go home with the driver while Chelsea went home with her car.
As the driver drove me home, I left my mind to wander around because the ride was boring with no Xavier to steal glances at and watch him secretly operating his phone.
I thought of the birthday party.
The incident at the pool, I’m very sure someone pushed me but why?
I didn’t even know if the person was a male or female and I couldn’t get even a glimpse of the person.
I took my bath and wore the clothes that were already placed on my bed.
A short– as Xavier’s mom had called it and what I think it’s a tank top.
I packed my hair in a loose ponytail and went downstairs.
After eating lunch, I got super bored.
Xavier wasn’t home yet neither was his mom home yet too.
I decided to go out of the house for a while and return back.
I suddenly thought of what happened the other day I went out alone, but the boredom wouldn’t allow me to stay in such a huge house alone.
I got outside the house and I started walking, heading to wherever my mind leads me too.
Delaney has gone out again and I wonder what will happen this time around??
