When I got back from school, I talked to my dad on my phone. But what I never knew, is that my mom got a divorce with my dad.
After I hung up the phone, my mom called saying that she needed me. I was confused about why she called me after I was done talking to my dad.
So I walked over to where my mom was and sat down next to her. She said “Have I ever told you that I had a divorce with my dad?”. At first, I was freaking out in my head. So I responded with a No. So she told me the whole story.
When she was 23, she fell in love with my dad. After 34 days, they got married. “Your dad was a really funny guy,” my mom said. But then, they wanted to have me. After 3-6 months, I was born.
But, my dad changed. He started to go out and started drinking and going home late. He would always say that he doesn’t have enough time to take care of me when I was still little. My mom was furious. She couldn’t take it anymore and wanted a divorce. So my mom and dad had a fight because of my dad not coming home to take care of me.
That’s when they had a divorce. After hearing that story, I was tearful and wanted to cry. I couldn’t believe that my dad was like that. So my mom told me that it was part of life. Falling in love, getting married, having a kid, it was like that. I never told my dad saying that if my mom got a divorce to him. But I dieced to keep this, a secret and tell nobody.
