Behind the Paper: Part Eight

It has been hours since I caught my boyfriend Darry cheating on me. Well now ex but he doesn’t know that. I don’t know where I am, but I needed to find shelter. And I am not going back to the house. I grab my phone off my back pocket of my jeans and I call my mom.

Ever since my dad left us, my mom and I became closer. We are the only ones we have left in the family after my aunt passed away. That event devastated my mother.

Unfortunately, she didn’t pick up. After trying to call everyone on my contacts, I hopelessly give up.

After ten minutes though, my mom called me back.

“Hello sweetie! What’s going on? You know its eleven o’clock!” my mom said on the phone,” I don’t understand these days. People staying up until midnight! You know…”

“Mom, Darry cheated on me and I am lost,” I cut off my mom. I love my mom and all but she talks a lot.

I heard a gasp from the other side.

“Oh no, sweetie, are you okay? Where are you right now. I knew Darry was bad news!”

Three years ago when I introduced Darry to my mom, she absolutely hated him. I didn’t know why she did.

“I’m on a Huckleberry Road,” I replied to my mom while I came across a street sign.

“If I was in the same state as you, I would come pick you up, but you know I’m in Montana right now… Wait you’re in New York right?”

“Yes.”

“Oh you can stay with my friend’s son!  If it is alright with you. He lives in the same place. I’ll call her, wait a minute.” It’s not like I have a choice. My mom hung up on me. And in a minute she called me like she promised.

“She said yes sweetie! She is calling her son right now and he is gonna pick you up!!” My mom’s excited voice said.

It might be awkward living with a complete stranger but like I said, I don’t have a choice.

“Okay, thanks mom.”

“Also, I hope you feel better. My beautiful daughter doesn’t deserve to be cheated on..” I could hear cries coming from my mom on the other line.

“Mom, it’s okay now. You don’t need to cry.”

‘You have grown up into such an independent, beautiful, young woman.” My mom said and that made me happy.

At that exact moment, a car drives by the road and when the driver saw me he stopped.

“Mom, he’s here.”
