A Father

Do I even know my father? Why was he paying Finigore? Was it to keep quiet about the Centre, or about how my mother died? I will never know those secrets because now he is dead. Too many secrets that Daddy had been keeping from me. He said that there shouldnt be any secrets between families, but he keeps secrets from me all the time.

A father is supposed to care about you and ask if you were okay. They were supposed to ask first instead of asking about Jarod. About the Centres prized possession. The guy that they want back so much. Sydney asked how she was and he wasnt her father. He asked about her welfare and didnt even ask about how Jarod was. She knew that he cared about Jarod too. Probably more than he cared about her because he raised Jarod and yet he asked how she was doing. She wondered what it would have been like to be raised by Sydney rather than her father. She knew that he cared about her, but being raised a Parker she never knew how to express those feelings.

The End.
