- Dad? It's two in the morning. What are you doing here?

I stepped outside and closed the door.

What was going on?

He looked like shit. His clothes were wrinkled and he hadn't shawed for days.

From the way he smelled I figured he hadn't showered either. Something

was seriously wrong.

- Can I come in? I need to talk to you.

- What's wrong? Is mom okey?

I started to panic. This behaivor wasn't like him and it freaked me out.

- Your mom... Well, she is not sick anyway. Look, can I come in? We

really need to talk.

I was about to show him inside when I remembered Ben. Inside my room.

In my bed. Naked.

- Can't we talk out here?

- Why ? You having company?

- Dad...

- I take that as a yes . Is it this Ben creature?

- Dad, back off. And his name is Ben Covington.

- So it is him then. Are you crazy?

So here we was again. Dad was judging my choices as usual. I felt the

irritation well up inside me but I pushed it down.

- Who I sleep with is my choice Dad. What is it that you want?

- Are you okey?

I turned when I heard the door opened and Ben came out. He had a worried

look on his face.

- Yeah Ben. I'm fine.

He came up to me and took my hand. He looked at my dad and I could see

his jaw tightening.

- Hello Mr Porter.

My dad bearly looked at him. He has never liked Ben and seeing him coming

out of my room with only a par of jeans on him didn't exactly inspire

any warmer feelings.

Dad gave him a curt nod.

- Mr Covington.

They stood there, staring at each other and I didn't know what to do.

I didn't know what was going on, didn't know why Ben was staring at

my dad with something close to hate in his eyes or why my dad

looked so nervous. Something was defenitly wrong.

- Ben, can you leave us alone for a minute? I need to talk to my dad.

He looked at me like he was about to say something but changed his

mind at the last minute and nodded. He gave me a quick kiss and with a

last weird look at my dad he went inside my room and closed the door.

I turned to my father.

- Okey, what's going on here? Why are you here in the middle of the


- I... I need to tell you something.

- And it couldn't wait until tomorrow?

He shook his head and swallowed hard.

- No, it couldn't. I... I have done something awful Felicity.

I felt a knot in my stomac. I had heard those words from him before...

No. No he couldn't have...

- You cheated on mom?

He wouldn't look me in the eyes and then I knew. I knew even before he

nodded and opened his mouth.

- Yes. And she kicked me out.

Bastard. He had promised. He had promised that he would stay faithfull

to mom this time. Had promised that the woman he slept with a couple

years ago had been a mistake. And now he done it again.

- Good for her. And why are you here?

I could hear the coldness in my voice, but I didn't care. He deserved it.

I hoped mom had yelled at him. Hoped that she had hurt him.

- I... I don't have any money. Can... Can I sleep here tonight?

I just stared at him. He couldn't be fucking serious.
