Once upon a time, there was a little boy who always wore a smile. He had his bubba, Daddy, and Mommy. Mommy wasn't his real mom, his Bubba told him so, but Daddy said he had to call her Mommy, and so he did.copyright protection67PENANAcklnew36Pz

Life wasn't perfect, but it was ok. The little boy didn't go to school yet, but his bubba did. Mommy worked, but Daddy stayed home. As far as the boy knew, that was how things were supposed to be, and he accepted that.copyright protection67PENANADUUYmI7wad

It was Friday afternoon. Mommy was still at work and Bubba wasn't home yet. Daddy sat on the couch with a can in his hand.copyright protection67PENANAltyTiuNKTQ

"When Bubba be home?" the little boy asked.71Please respect copyright.PENANANoHTFVCD3H

"Dylan will be home when he gets here," Daddy said, taking a sip of his drink.copyright protection67PENANA6ar09OJgkT

"What drink?" copyright protection67PENANAuGm2zExnpq

"You talk too damn much, kid."copyright protection67PENANAeewppZP7wn

The boy had started talking young. Someone had a name for the reason for that, but it wasn't a word the boy understood. In fact, the boy didn't understand the tone his father used, only that it was mean, and loud and hurt his ears.copyright protection67PENANAECx6DHUmXf

Time passed and Dylan came home. The boy ran to him as fast as he could, demanding to be picked up by the boy who was only a bit older than him. Dylan lifted him into a hug, setting him down on his feet. copyright protection67PENANAfsVBuvg1SG

Later he was doing homework, but it was the fun stuff, coloring sheets. Sometimes Dylan let him color one of the coloring sheets with him, but not today so the boy played as little boys do, running around the coffee table, until he tripped, knocking over the can on the floor.copyright protection67PENANAs6UYwkXmst

He didn't see the hand, but felt it when it landed on his face. He didn't understand the words, the tone but he was talking loud, so loud. He covered his ears when the blow landed it.copyright protection67PENANAJ75gdIY84W

That was the beginning. Not the first time his father's hand had landed on him with force, but the first time he felt something he had never felt before, betrayal. And it wouldn't be the last time he felt betrayal, but out of all the years, the nights of stolen innocence, the pain, that one evening was the one he could never forget. It would be the night that haunted his mind for years to come, because if he hadn't spilled the beer, then maybe, just maybe Daddy would have loved him. And even though the years have passed and Daddy was gone, the betrayal went away. copyright protection67PENANAnkoiVTOcVG

XXjoeyXX - things are better, and I'm learning to cope. honestly this was no where near what i had planned to write originally until i relized that writing anything else would be ignoring what i've been trying to ignore for 15 years now.

Kholekins2001 - I'm happy to hear things are going better. Sometimes the things you don't plan to write come out better than what you actually planned to write. That's exactly what I see here. :-)

XXjoeyXX - @Kholekins2001, thank you :-) i know it's not perfect but i'm glad I wrote it. Thank you for making this contest, it gave me a way to get something off my chest that i really needed to, and you'll never know how much that means to me
