my dad is sitting on the couch.. my mom on the chair.
his face is very stern, i think i’m in trouble.. my heart starts to race…
“what!? what is it??” i ask.
he looks at me with a face i can’t read… “i don’t know how else to say this but… i’ve found someone… else…. that I want to be with…. you’re mother and i are seperating”
i understood the words but do not comprehend the meaning for what feels like a few minutes… the wind feels knocked out of me… i can’t speak… even when i try, i have no words.
he keeps talking about how he loves me and he will be there but its all just a blur.
finally, i calm down enough to ask “well, what do you mean? where exactly are you moving?”
“Canada… Nova Scotia”
crash. bam. boom.
world upside down, in 3 minutes flat.
