Three Sides – Gabi – 7(2)

I planned and worried, but I need not, for I never saw ‘Sherry’, my Dad’s new wife, again after that morning.  

I know Dad was upset, I think he cried, but I pretended I didn’t see.  I was a  kid, right?  

I didn’t know what was happening, he wasn’t talking.   I let it go.  After a few days,  I asked Dad about Sherry. Acting brave, he told me she had left him, then raced out of the room.

I had to stifle a smile.

Now I had Dad all to myself.  

I would live with him until it was time for me to go away to college, just over a year from today.  I’d be the centre of his life, get everything I want.

My mother could have Brad and her baby,  my Dad could have me until I left.
