It's sappy. But nice.

 

I thought you didn't like Sappy!

 

Rainbow Dash, even I like a little romance. Not a lot, but it's nice.

Lucy- YES I CAN DO THIS ROMANCE THING!!!

Amber- Aww, thanks! I do try not to make it to, uh, detailed...

 

 I hang up and drop my phone onto my new bed, feeling much relieved. After seeing how frazzled I was after work every night, Grandma encouraged me to quit. “You don’t need the money, anyways,” she’d said. And she was right. I feel so much freer now. I can get another job if I really want the extra cash- but I’ll make sure it’s one that I’ll enjoy.

 These past few days have been a bit awkward, just as I predicted (“Uh… can I call you Grandma?” and “So… what grade are you in again?”), but it’s getting better. We really do have a lot in common and she’s really nice, too. And cool- she used to do makeup for famous (-ish) actors and actresses back in the 70’s.

 My stomach grumbles and I head downstairs for a snack. As I step into the kitchen, I see a picture on the wall and freeze. Is that… me? No, I realize after a closer look, but it’s someone who looks very familiar. It must be my mother. There are a few pictures of her back at my house (which maybe I should rescue, except I never want to go back), but she’s older in all of them. Here, she’s just a teen. So young.

 Grandma walks up to me. “She’s beautiful,” I breathe. It must be at some party. Her long brown waves are up in a ponytail and she’s wearing an iridescent green dress.

 “She looked just like you,” Grandma says, shaking her head. I turn to her and see her eyes fill.

 “You still miss her a lot?” I ask. “I mean, obviously, of course you do. I mean, does it still hurt a lot?” She’s silent for a moment. I just messed up so bad…

 Then she nods. “Every day I miss her. But mourning forever won’t bring her back, and it won’t help me, either. It’s possible to have good feelings and miss her. I was angry and stuck for a long time after Kimberley’s death.” She pauses. “Mia, I want to tell you something that I wish someone had told me earlier. All those things you want, the things you miss, the things you regret- don’t let them hold you back.”

 I nod. “I’ll try. You’re- you’re a really great grandma,” I add.

 She smiles and pats my shoulder. “Thank you, sweetie. Now, would you like to bake some cookies?”

 Well, not particularly, but baking means eating, so there’s not really a question here.

Chapter Sixteen

 

 “So maybe you should, like, visit him,” Scarlet says.

 “Visit my father, you mean?” We’re walking outside, our feet squelching on the grass turned wet and springy by the first warm rains.

 “Yeah. To get some like closure or something.”

 I shake my head. “Nope, no way, not happening, negative, veto, not doing it,” is my potent response.

 “Oh, come on, Mia. Aren’t you curious? And you’ll finally get to smack-talk him!”

 “Curious about what?” I ask.

 She flushes slightly pink, something I’ve never seen her do. This girl’s motto is “No shame.” No kidding. “To find out why… I’m sure it’s not because of you or anything, just to know what he was thinking… There’s no way it was your fault, but-”

 “Yeah, yeah, I get it. I don’t know… I guess I’m still scared. I know he can’t do anything to me and everything, but all my memories are just gonna hit me full force, and I don’t think I’m ready. It’s…”

 “Too embedded in you,” Scarlet finishes for me.

 I nod. “I mean, I’ll ask Mr. Eisenhower if he thinks I should. But honestly, I doubt I’ll ever pluck up the courage to do that.”

 Scarlet doesn’t press the matter further, presumably because she doesn’t want to be a pushover. But I know that I’d better ask Mr. Eisenhower, because she definitely won’t have any problem doing it for me… Which is a good complement to my cowardly side, I suppose.

 I had to cut out a little bit of this, but hopefully it's okay.

 

Later, sitting in Mr. Eisenhower’s office for my weekly session, I decide to spring my question. The less time I have to chicken out, the better.

 “So, Mr. E, I have to ask you something.”

“Anything,” he answers, leaning back.

 “I was talking to someone the other day, Scarlet Cloud-Whit, and she said she thinks it’s a good idea for me to go visit my father. Do you think I should?”

 He strokes his moustache. “First of all, it’s great that you’re opening up to people about this.”

 “More like she opened me up about it,” I mumble.

 “And you wanna know if it’s a good idea? Yes, it’s a wondaful idea! It will force you to pluck up the courage hidden within.”

 “Deep, deep within,” I sigh.

 “It may seem that way, but once you do it, you’ll realize that you are brave. You withstood a lot and all through that you continued to face life every single day.”

 "Another reason I want you to go visit your father is because I want you to get desensitized to him.”

 “What exactly does that mean?” I ask. His smallest plant grew another little shoot, I notice.

 “Well, when a kid has, say, a peanut allagy, their doctah might choose to give them tiny injections of a peanut liquid over a period of time, so that while they won’t be able to freely eat nuts, in the even that they do they’ll be just fine.”

 “Ohh, I see. You don’t want me to freak out every time I see someone who looks like him.” Or, actually is him. I haven’t thought about what’s going to happen when his four year sentence is over. I gotta talk to Kevin about this.

  “Yeah,” Mr. E bobs his head. “And lastly, the two of you have a lot to discuss, like it or not.”

 “What spurred you to join the poetry club?” Grandma asks. She’s been keeping up a steady stream of chatter to keep my mind off of what I’m about to do.

 Visit Dad.

 “Mia? You okay?”

 “Wha- oh, yeah, I’m fine. I am super nervous though.

 “That’s only normal. But don’t overthink it.”

 I shrug. “Yeah. So, the poetry club,” –wow, that seems like it was eons ago- “Nothing, really. I’d never been into writing. It just seemed like the best option.” I pause. “Crazy how it ended up changing my life,” I muse, shaking my head. Grandma smiles reassuringly as she pulls into a parking spot.               

 “Well, this is it.” The prison is built on a hill, and the whole place is tilted, like the lives inside it, and the lives of the people they left suffering in their wake. Good metaphor, I note.

 We step out and trudge up to the ominous building, which is surprisingly not gray. It’s a pristine white.

 “Like the souls we keep here,” the guard jokes in response to Grandma’s remark.

 I watch all of numbly, detached, as if I’m not there. I don’t like that at all.

 We fill out the visiting application to prove that we’re not fellow criminals trying to break him out. As if. Then Grandma has to fill out a minor’s application for me.

 My bangs fall over my eyes and I blow them away. Someone asks for my student ID and for a second I wonder if they suspect me. Then I figure it’s probably just standard procedure. We wait while they verify everything and then we’re done.

 I’m about to see my father for the first time in a little over a month.

 The building is stuffy, but I find myself shivering. Grandma holds my hand and even though it makes me feel like the biggest baby ever, I don’t pull away.

 What if he starts yelling?

What if hates me ever more?

What if he tells me all the reasons why and their solid?

 I only realize that I’m muttering this out loud when Grandma whispers, “What ifs are a waste of time.

 I nod and take a deep breath. Our escort unlocks a door and lets us in.

 “I’ll be waiting right here. If the inmate gets violent, call me in,” he says, his face callous. Looks like those nice cops who came to get me away from home were the exception.

 The bare walls seem to glare at me from all sides. In the center of the room is a table with a phone on it and an uncomfortable plastic chair. I stare at the floor, afraid of what I’ll see if I look up. But I do, anyway, because I must.

 Dad’s eyes meet mine and I can’t breathe anymore. I didn’t like feeling numb? Now I got what I wanted. Every ounce of me is living to feel pain and my brain is shouting Run! 

 

BWAHAHAHA CLIFFHANGER!!!

Grandma is there to bring her 'round! She won't run, because she needs to yell at him.
