There comes a time in a little girl's life when she begins to see her father in a more realistic light. He's no longer the perfect prince or knight in shining armor standing guard to save her from the mean old dragon. He's no longer the one who's always there to quiet her fears and kiss her boo boos, and he is certainly not going to be her future husband. He's flesh and blood. He's fallible.

That time came when I was about six years old.

My mother and I had spent the weekend at my grandmother's ranch upstate. Grandmother had come down with the flu during our trip, so we ended up coming home early, only to find my father on the couch, his naked body hovering over a woman who was certainly not my mother.

At the time, I really didn't understand what was happening, but the shared looks of horror and subsequent screaming and arguing that followed told me that my father had done something very wrong.

To this day, I didn't know why my mother didn't call my father to make him aware of our early arrival home, though I wondered if she hadn't already suspected what he'd been up to behind her back.

It was a long time before she found anyone again, and after that, a few times a year, I'd come home from a weekend at Dad's and would be introduced to yet another boyfriend.

Sadly, none of them measured up or lasted very long for that matter, at least not until him.


Next Chapter we'll meet Him... as if you didn't know who He was.

Who's with me?
