Part 1 Love stinks
After he kicked her out, she ran to another room and begged to use their telephone! (This was the 90s; cellphones weren’t a common item to own).
I sat on the other end of the phone in disbelief. All I heard was loud screaming, and after she calmed down, she told me where she was and how scared she was. She heard him yelling her name at the top of his lungs as he looked for her. Finally, when she knew he was gone, she ran out of the hotel.
It took her a little over an hour to reach her parent’s house.
When she arrived, her shirt was ripped and hanging off her shoulders. She could barely talk because her lip was swelling more and more by the minute. And the LOVE of her life had left her right eye black and blue.
Her father had enough and was ready to end him once and for all, but she and her mother begged him to calm down. What good would come from her father going to jail or prison, depending on what he would do to this coward of a human being? So her father stayed home to comfort her, and she fell asleep in his arms that night.
She went to LOOK for her LOVE
When morning came, she needed to see him again. She had suspected she was pregnant, and it turned out she was. Her mother knew she looked different the night before, so she bought a pregnancy test. After waiting five minutes, the results became their new nightmare.
She knew he would be at the Motel, so she headed off to tell him the news… but he wasn’t there.
Monday Morning Delight
I’ll never forget the smile on her face when her jobless LOVE showed up at our job during her lunch break. The last time they spoke was on Friday…well I guess spoke isn’t the correct word choice, but you get my point.
He came looking for her because he wanted money, but for some strange reason, she couldn’t wait to tell him that he was going to be a father. When she told him, he hugged her and told her she needed to quit her factory job because being there could harm the baby. (As if beating her would help the baby)!
So with a huge smile plastered on her face and a spark in her eye, she did just that.
The beatings continued…
The last part will be out tomorrow!
