Chapter 5: News And An Almost
sorry its been so long between updates. ive been really busy and all. ill try and update closer together if i can. im still working on A Secret Turns A World Around. im alternating working on this and the other. so dont forget about that one!
I run as fast as I can down the rest of the way to my ex-wife's house. I need to see her. As I reach the porch, I sprint up to the door and yank it open. When I step through and close the door, I see the love of my life sitting on the couch reading a book. She looks up at me with those amazing gorgeous blue eyes.
'Brock? What is he doin here?' I stand up as he walks toward me. I mark my page in my book and put it down. As soon as I look up again, he's standing right there next to me.
"Brock what you doin here? I thought you were goin home to talk to Barbra Jean?" I ask my ex-husband.
"I know." He says in reply. He leans his in closer to mine. I can feel his hot breath on my lips, his own only a mere centimeter from mine. As he starts leaning in, coming closer and closer, the front door opens.
We jump three feet apart and look towards the door to see our only son together, Jake, walk in. I gather my thoughts and start to speak.
"Jake what are you doin home? Weren't you supposed to be over at Billy's house today?" I ask him.
"His mom forgot they had to do a lot of errands today. But she said I can sleepover tonight if that's ok? Please Mom?" He pleads.
"Oh alright. But be home by 11 tomorrow morning."
"Ok thanks Mom!" He says and runs up the stairs. I turn back towards the man standing next to me. I try to think of what to say now, since we left off at an awkward moment before Jake came in, but he beat me to it.
"Reba, can we talk?"
Outside, Van's POV
As Cheyenne and I start walking down to Barbra Jean and Mr. H's house, I start thinking. 'What is goin on with Mrs. H?' I have no idea. But if anyone hurt her or did anything to her, I'll kill 'em. I won't let nobody hurt her. She put a roof over my family's head, put food on the table, gave me a job, she saved my life.
We keep walking down the sidewalk and I see Mr. H walking towards us. "Hey Cheyenne, there's your Dad." I say to my wife.
"Oh yeah!" She says back. "Hey Daddy! Where ya goin?" She asks as he walks right past us.
"I need to talk to your mother." He says and keeps walking down the street towards Mrs. H's house.
"What do you think that was all about Cheyenne?"
"I don't know. Come on. Let's go see if Barbra Jean knows."
When we finally reach Barbra Jean and Mr. H's house, I open the front door and step inside with Cheyenne behind me.
"Barbra Jean?" I call out.
"In here." Came the reply from the kitchen. We both walk through the door and see the tall blonde sitting at the table.
"Hey Barbra Jean! What's up-Woah!" I say after seeing a couple tears on her cheeks.
"Barbra Jean what happened?" Cheyenne says and walks over to her.
"I don't know if Brock already told you, but we are getting a divorce." She explains to us.
"Oh my God! Really? Why?" The smaller blonde asks frantically.
"It's the best thing to do. We just don't love each other anymore. It's not fair to Henry or either of us to be in a loveless marriage."
"Oh Barbra Jean I'm so sorry!" Cheyenne says and hugs Barbra Jean.
"Wait then why was Mr. H practically sprinting down the street to Mrs. H's? Wouldn't you two have told her together? What else is goin on?"
so what do y'all think? review please!(:
