"Girls!" Ms. Kanker called out. When Mom said that, it was equivalent to 'Come here!' so we all left our projects to the where my Mom sat as usual. She sighed and brushed some sweat off her forehead.
"You okay, Mom?" Lee asked.
"Wh-What happened?" May, the worrier, asked.
Mom gave me one look before speaking. "He started a case against me again." She sighed. "Wants mutual custody or whatever."
My heart froze. Not that, not again. I felt Lee and May put their hands on my shoulder.
"Don't worry, Marie. I'll keep Bubba's dirty self away." But she didn't sound confident, and I knew it.
"You can go now, girls. I need some time to relax." We all nodded and went back to what we were doing. I wasn't sure, but I think none of us actually went back to our activities, I just sat there on my desk staring at my homework. I had considered actually doing some of it but now, I decided to fuck it.
I lay back on my chair, thinking about my Dad. I usually could keep him out of my mind, but today was not that day. I closed my eyes, and before I knew it, I was transported to his trailer.
The last time I ever saw him was when I was nine. That was when Bubba still had mutual custody over me despite the number of beatings I'd taken. I'd been sitting on the floor watching cartoons all day while Bubba went on a date with another one of the women he met in a bar. Or maybe just a prostitute he picked up off the street. I really didn't know.
When he came in, I turned to see him looking intensely pissed off. I froze. This couldn't be good, it never was. He looked around until his bloodshot eyes found me. He stumbled toward me, muttering somethings to himself.
He put his hand on my shoulder, grinning like a mad man as he pushed me down on the floor. I didn't completely comprehend what he wanted, but I knew it wasn't good. I shouted and pushed him off, luckily, being drunk meant it was easier to fight him. He fell back into the kitchen counter.
He grabbed onto it and helped himself up. I guess that's when he spotted the knife on the counter. He grabbed it and looked at me, licking his lips. The next thing I knew, I couldn't see from my right eye. I put my hand on it and felt blood.
I don't know what happened then, but suddenly, Bubba just dropped the knife and went into his bedroom, slamming the door behind him. I sat there, bleeding from my eye, until finally, I called my Mom from the phone.
After that, all of it was a blur of lights, chemical smells, and hushed talking from strangers.
"Marie!" My family was standing around me. "You were crying in your sleep." May said, concerned.
"I-I'm okay, really." Marie said, getting up.
Mom bit her lip, not sure what to do. She sighed and took us all in her arms. "We're a family, and families stick together no matter what crap we have to deal with."
I was a bit surprised. Mom usually didn't talk nicely or about families. I guess this was a serious time.
"Thanks." I said as I let myself fall into the group hug.
My first Ed Edd n Eddy fic. Bubba is based off of VampireMeerkat's art. Check her out on deviantart.
And well, I used to imagine how Edd and Marie would ever get together. Finally I decided to write it down and post it.
So here's the first chapter. And I decided to explain why Marie only shows one eye.
