Life sucks – Suck it up… Episode 11

Life sucks – suck it up
Chapter 11
By Jennifer Owens
Damon’s POV
I finished my work around 21:14 and I went home.
I was heading upstairs but mom called me that she wants to tell me something important.
“mom please another day, I’m tired ” I sighed.
“it’s about Rebecca ” she said and I arched an eyebrow.
“what about her ” I asked going to sit with her on the couch.
“I just did some research about her” she said.
“mom spit it out ” I stated.
“OK she was a stripper ” she started and my eyes widened.
“and maybe she could still be ” she said.
“mom what nonsense are you blabbering about ” I yelled and stood up from the couch.
“I’m not lying Damon, she even spent 4 years of her life in juvenile for murdering her dad ” she blurted out and I could feel the tension growing in my body.
“she even had a daughter ” mom said and I could feel tears well up in my eyes.
“but she dumped her at the orphanage and abandoned her, that’s who she is, she’s ruthless and she doesn’t care about anyone except herself ” she said and I could see the truth in her eyes.
Why would Becca do such a despicable thing, dumping her child at the orphanage.
Only a despicable person and a mother will do something like that.
“so Damon dear I’m telling you now to ”
I walked out of her and went to my room cutting her off.
“hey you’re back ” Becca said smiling.
“I couldn’t go back home cuz it was late and I don’t know my way home ” she said smiling.
“hey what happened, why are your eyes red, did anything happen ” she asked but I just kept staring into her eyes.
“were you a stripper ” I asked and she was taken aback.
“wh_what ” she stuttered.
“answer me ” I yelled and she flinched.
“yes ” she said in a whisper but I heard it.
“but that was in the past I promise ” she added.
“did you murder your dad ” I asked and she was shocked.
Becca’s POV
“did you murder your dad ” he asked and I was shocked.
How did he know all this?. The past that I’ve been trying to forget are now haunting me?
“did you ” he yelled again making me flinch.
“yes ” I answered and I could see disappointment, pain, and hurt in his eyes.
“but it wasn’t int ”
“did you dump your child at the orphanage ” he asked cutting me off.
“I did but I regret ”
“shut up ” he yelled and threw the vase at the wall making it shatter.
“get out ” he said in a whisper but I heard it and I didn’t believe it.
“what ” I asked.
“get out ” he yelled and I ran out with tears streaming down my cheeks.
“haha haha haha ” I heard Carina and her mom laughing as I ran out through the sitting room.
I reached outside and stopped to catch my breath.
I walked along the lonely road with tears in my eyes.
Once again I thought I could forget my past and move on.
I thought I could be happy but how could I forget that my life sucks and it will always suck and I’ll keep on sucking it up .
I just walked along the road going to nowhere exactly cos I don’t know my way out around here.
My leg hurts and I’m very tired and I could feel my heart ache.
It’s like they are piercing my heart with needle non stop.
I saw a corner and sat there with my knee up to my chest and my head on my knee and sobbed there.
Damon’s POV
I stood there watching her as she laid her head on her knee and sobbed.
Yes, I followed her.
Seconds later when I told her to get out, I realised its late and she doesn’t know her way back so I trailed behind her.
My heart aches so much and it hurts more to see her in pain but what to do, I need to start getting over her.
How can a mother dump her own child at the orphanage, how can she kill her own father.
Here I was, thinking that I’ve found the right person, thinking that I’ve found my queen but little did I know that she was a devil in sheep clothing.
I need to wash away any feelings I have for her, the faster I get over her the better.
I sat down at a corner watching her, I’ll have to wait here till its morning to make sure she’s safe.
Fast forward……..
I didn’t sleep at all last night, I couldn’t afford closing an eye coz I didn’t want anything to happen to her.
I watched her as she got up walking slowly.
Her leg must be aching.
She turned back and sighted me.
I turned my back and started walking away.
“Damon wait ” she said but I continued walking away.
“Damon please just listen to me please ” I still didn’t stop.
“Damon if you had any atom of love for me then wait ” she said and I stopped on my track.
She caught up with me and stood in front of me.
“Damon please let me explain ” she pleaded.
“I don’t wanna hear anything, gosh do I even know you ” I asked.
“Damon please just ”
“Rebecca Gilbert ” I called her full name and she looked at me.
“you disgust me, you are despicable and I hate you. I regret ever meeting you and falling in love with you, you’re not worth to be loved by anyone and from this day henceforth, never show your face to me coz I don’t wanna see it ” I said and brushed past her leaving her to cry.
