Family Affair

Oblivious of my presence, I stood aside watching how she cut the vegetables. It was with so much intensity and anger. I knew something wasn’t right with her.

“Anything wrong, mum?” I asked.

She looked up. Face already pale and eyes swollen. I could tell she’d been crying.

“Do you also know what has been going on?” she asked.

I didn’t understand her.

“What are you talking about?” I asked.

She stopped for a while, wiped her tears and walked up to me.

“Do you know your father has a male lover?”

The question hit straight at me. Like a bomb. I wasn’t expecting it. How did she find out?

“Who told you that?” I asked stuttering.

“I happened to see his chats with his lover. It was raw and disgusting. I swear I would definitely kill that lover of his if I set my eyes on him!” she thundered.

“You wouldn’t want to kill your own own son, would you?” I said unconsciously.

She turned immediately with a scary face.

“Say what?”

I realized immediately what I had said, but it was too late to take back my words.

God, talk about giving yourself away!
