I can’t believe Mom broke up with Jack!

How could she tear apart from the one person we’ve always been able to count on? The one who’s been there for us for two years, who’s shown us nothing but love and support. How could she just throw that all away like it meant nothing? I don’t understand it. It’s like a nightmare.

I never knew my real father. When I asked about him Mom said I didn’t need to know anything about him. She said I’m better off without him and that I don’t need a father. She said that all I need is her.

She was wrong about that. I also need Jack.

I pack a couple of days worth of clothes, throw my stuff into the backseat of my car, and pull out of the driveway. It’s getting dark and I have a two-hour drive ahead of me.

I’m going up to the cabin to be with Jack.
