Today was just like any other day. Everything was good as I was getting off the bus to head home. I only had one thing in mind when I got home and that was to take a nap. I planned my whole day around my nap since coach cancelled our practice today, But I didn't mind because ya girl was happy that means she could take a nap. I was quickly snapped out of my thought when I heard my a1 from day 1 call my name.
"Lex, Lex, Alexia !!! Hello !! Earth to Alexia !!! - Jessica yelled 199Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjqPxQJ5Egy
"Oh sorry, What was you saying?"
I was saying if we are still going to the movies and to that party on Friday night cause you know I'm finally off punishment and I've been dying to party.
"Damn girl you finally off punishment from missing your curfew 4weeks ago? But you know that I'm down."
"Ughh! Yesssss because my mom is being a bitch about it."
We both laugh as we reach her house, just as her mom is pulling up in the yard from getting off work.
"Well, I'll see you later girl, I'll text you, Bye Mama Gina."
We did our goodbyes and I started walking just a few more houses down going to my house. As I approach my house I hear my little sister crying, and I hear my parents yelling and screaming at each other. This was becoming a habit for them lately. All they did was fuss and fight about every little thing. At one point it was never like that, love use to live in the house now it just doesn't seem like it. As I approached the house, I said a silently prayer and walked in grabbing Aliyiah, getting her a juice box and a snack taking her in my room.
"Stop crying baby girl, it's okay, you're a big girl, big girls don't cry. Whats wrong, why you crying?"
She looks up at me wiping her tears and comes and hugs me.
"I sowwwry for crying, mommy and daddy was doing all that screaming and it made me scared. Can you fix it and make it better pweeeaze?"
I sigh loudly and hug her tight kissing her, then I begin to tickle her.
"Stop ! Stop !! Sissy you gone make me pee in my clothes!!
I laugh as I hear my parents call our names to come downstairs. I get Lay and her snack and bring her down stairs just as my brother comes behind us.
"Hey Bubba!! I miss you."
"Wassup Lay come her baby girl"
Brandon takes Lay out my arms and sits her in his lap on the couch as we sit and look at our parents. My mom is holding back tears as I see my dad with anger and heart in his eyes. It looks like he's trying to find words to say but just can't put them together. My mom stands up and pace the floor.
"Yall know me and your father loves you all very much. We have something to tell y'all and it might not be the news you want to hear." Natasha explained
"Your mother and I can't keep putting y'all through this. We know we been arguing like cats and dogs trying to work things out."
"Man cut the bull and just tell us whats going on." Brandon said.
"We're getting a divorce and we want you all to have a decision and who you want to live me. We will not be staying in this house and we will be moving. Whatever decision you make you will not hurt or will we not be disappointed who you pick.
"What? No way! You're lying, I don't believe it!! Please don't make us choose."
As those words came out my mouth I couldn't help but wonder what went wrong. I just couldn't bring myself to believe this was finally happening. I knew it was going to happen, I just didn't think it would be this soon. I looked around the room and I saw my brother with a blank stare on his face, I could tell he was upset but he wasn't letting it show, while he was holding our baby sister in his arms. Boy this was going to be so hard to get through. I have no idea what we are going to do. She interrupted my thoughts as she begin to continue to talk.
"I'm sorry Lexie, you know I hate doing this to you and your brother and sister, but it's just not working out anymore."
Natasha was trying to explain to her daughter that things just wasn't working out between her and her father anymore. They just didn't have that spark like they did when they first got married.
"You can make it work, I know y'all can please don't give up for us, we need you both!!
I screamed as tears begin to run down my face. I couldn't hold them back any longer. I just hated that they had to do this to us especially Aliyah our baby sister at a young age. This was going to be hard on her and she doesn't know what is really going on.
"Hey, baby girl come here, you know we still love y'all the same it's just that me and your mother thought this would be best for us if we do this now."
Robert reasoned with his daughter. It broke his heart to see his little girl break down and cry like this. It's killing him that is nothing he can do about it.
"Well why y'all was doing all this thinking did you think about how we, your children would react? Let me guess we weren't included in this was we?"
I couldn't take it anymore so I grab my purse and headed out the door to clear my head. I don't know where I was going I was just walking. I couldn't stay in that house with all that was going on.
I ended up going to the park. I sit on the swing set swinging back and forth thinking about the decision my parents made that didn't include us. My parents have been married for 15 years and I live in a world where some relationships last about 15 minutes. How could they give up when they been together basically their whole life. I just don't understand how they could let some silly mistakes I'm sure ruining their marriage like this. I just despised the fact that they wanted us to choose which one of them we were living with. Now that was definitely going to be hard but I already know who I'm going to pick I just don't want to hurt the other persons feeling.
I was deep in thought until I looked down at my phone and see that I've had 7 missed calls from my dad ,9 missed calls from my mama, 4 texts from my best friend, and two texts from my brother. I got up from the swing and made my way home since it was getting dark.
I came home and the house was dark, so I took that as my queue to go upstairs and go to my room.
