33 || Get out


Nerves. I’m a bundle of nerves and anger. Anger that hasn’t fully manifested. I ring the door again but it’s the same response. Silence. I look over my shoulder to the car waiting out front. Jason dropped me off. He insisted on waiting till I was safely inside. 

I may have treated him like shit but he’s exactly how Amelia described him in her letter. Plus, he took care of my babies. 

My babies. I have a son. Saying that to myself has no effect on me. Maybe it will when I see the blue eyed miniature of me.

The knob twists as I’m about to knock again and the door opens. Unfortunately, it’s not the woman I want to see. I step back. 


“Calum,” he responds. 

It’s an awkward family reunion. I rock on my heels, feeling like the twenty-one year old kid he took into his home. What should I say?

I'm glad you get it, Anna. It's over the top but realistic. People do crazy things out of grief.

This is right and I'm glad you get her. It's so much for only her to handle and as annoying as it is, she has a lot on her head.
