Daddy's Little Girl
The next morning I awoke to the smell of chocolate chip pancakes, and orange juice. It was only about 8 o'clock, and I was surprised that I had woken up so early due to the previous night's events.
I slowly but surely moved out of the bed, trying my best to ignore the searing pain in my lower abdomen. I was more sore than I had been the morning after having sex for the first time, which was pretty fucking sore.
After I searched the room for clothes and came up empty handed, I decided it was probably best to just sneak to my room and put some of my own clothes on instead of Dad's. Ya know, to avoid questioning later from Mom or Braydyn.
I opened the door to Mom and Dad's room and stuck my head out, and looked both ways before running out into the hallway and practically sprinting towards my room, nearly falling on my face 4 times. Right as I was about to walk in I heard Braydyn's bedroom door open and I knew right then and there that he had seen me run naked from Dad's room back to mine. I quickly went into my room and closed the door.
"Kiera? Why are you naked?" Braydyn asked from outside of my room.
"I-um, I was taking Dad's shirt back to him. I slept in it last night.."
I held my breath waiting for a response.
"Oh," he said quietly, "Okay!" His fotsteps could then be heard going towards the steps.
I exhaled and quickly decided to take a shower. I grabbed a Dark Grey cami, and some 'Invader Zim' short shorts. Some neon colored ankel socks, and headed to the shower.
As I descended the stairs I could hear Dad talking on the phone to who I could only guess was Mom. He didn't sound very pleased. From what I gathered from the fragment of the conversation I overheard, mom was cheating on him.
I didn't know whether to be happy or sad about this. And that bothered me.
I skipped into the kitchen where Dad was, still on the phone, but with someone else now. When he seen me he smiled, showing his dimples. I of course smiled back and mouthed a 'good morning,' and slapped 2 pancakes on my plate, and smothered them in maple syrup.
He didn't reply, but instead came up behind me when I was pouring some orange juice into a plastic cup, and wrapped his arms around my waist.
"...No, I had my suspicions about her. But I never really wanted to believe she would have cheated on me." He spoke into the phone. "Well listen man, I have to talk to the kids, and I'll call you back in a little while.. Alright.. Bye."
He hung up the phone, and almost instantly ran his tongue up my throat just above my pulse.
"Well, I have some stuff to tell you and Bray. Go find him, we have to talk." He said quietly before turning my head to the right just enough for him to connect our lips.
"Okay." I said, realizing that it was most likely his friend Brian, who is a lawyer, that he just got off the phone with.
Ten minutes later.
"Well guys, I uh, just got a call from your mom. She told me she had something to tell me, and I feel like the both of you deserve to know. I don't want to upset you guys, I just think it's best if you know what's going on, okay?"
We both nodded our heads.
"Alright. So um, well, your mom has been seeing someone else.." he trailed off.
I figured, but it still upset me because Dad saying it, made it real. Not that I have room to be upset, because me and Dad have been screwing around recently. But I guess Mom has been screwing around on Dad a lot longer.
"She uhm.. She uh.. God Dammit." He laid his head in his hands, trying to get up enough nerve to say whatever it was he was going to say. "She's filing for divorce, and she wants custody of both of you."
My eyes went wide, and accidently spilled my orange juice out all over the table.
Dad got up and went to go get some paper towels, and that's when I heard Braydyn crying.
"Bray? Bubby? What's wrong?"
"I don't wanna go with Mommy. I wanna stay here with you and Daddy."
At that moment, Dad walked back into the kitchen.
"Braydyn, if you don't want to go live with Mommy, you don't have to. That's why I wanted to talk to you guys, I wanted ot see what both of you wanted to do. I'm not going to make you do anything you don't want to do. Even if you did want to go with Mommy, I would let you. I just want you both to be happy." He said crouching down between mine and Braydyn's chairs, and pulling us both into his chest.
I felt tears running down his face and onto mine, and it was then that I realized just how heartbroken my Daddy really was. She had ripped his heart out, and even though he had technically done the same thing to her, by cheating, he still loved her. Even though she apparently didn't still love him.
At that moment I realized that no one would ever replace my Dad. No one could ever come close to him. It was then that I realized that I was literally in love with him.
