Read Story: SEASON 1 EPISODE 40
My eyes returned to the ground. She had never been this harsh to me, and a part of me wanted to leave. I wanted nothing more than to run outside and get away from her wrath, but my feet were glued to the ground. For some reason, the guilt was too much.
“Your dad is looking down at you right now with disgust,” she continued. “You shattered the one thing that kept me and him linked. Useless and clumsy is what we both think of you.”
At those harsh words, tears filled my eyes. I couldn’t look up as I clenched my hands into fists, realizing why I felt so bad. My dad had loved this plate, just like my mom. Its beauty was the one thing my mom and dad could truly agree on. She was right, he was probably looking down on me in shame. It hurt to think about it.
“What’s going on?”
My head flew up at the low voice I loved. With my eyes growing wide, I watched as Christian made his way towards my mom and I. As his eyes landed on me, I saw shock and sadness flash before his eyes. Before I knew it, they then hardened as he glared at my mom.
“Your wonderful, useless sister broke my plate,” my mom simply replied. “She’s such an idiot.”
“Don’t say that!” Christian snapped, stepping in front of me. “Don’t you dare talk about her like that!”
Both my mom and I’s eyes widened. I would never expect him to talk to my mom like that. And seeing my mom’s reaction, she didn’t expect it either.
“Christian,” my mom said calmly. “She destroyed something I cherish with her clumsy hands. I’m not the bad guy here.”
“It was an accident,” he hissed. “And even if she did something wrong, that doesn’t give you the right to be a shitty person.”
“Excuse me?” My mom’s eyes widened. “What did you just say?”
“I’m tired of you treating Autumn like trash!” Christian shouted. “I’m so f-----g tired of you treating your only daughter like she’s a waste of space! What type of mother are you!”
“You know what, Christian!” My mom suddenly yelled back, rage evident on her face. “You should shut up! You’re only protecting her because you’re in love with her!”
At that, Christian and I froze. It took everything within me to hide my shock as I stared at her rage filled face. I couldn’t believe it. She knew. Somehow, she knew. This couldn’t be happening.
“What are talking about?” Christian asked quietly, sounding calm despite the anger evident in his eyes.
“I’m talking about the way you look at her. The way you’re always near her,” my mom hissed. “You’re in love with your sister. How disgusting.”
I couldn’t help but wince at the venom in her tone. It wasn’t like I was planning on telling her about us, but I knew that I would never now. Even if we were to get married, it would have to be as far from her as possible.
“You’re delusional,” Christian said, rolling his eyes. “I care about her because she’s the family I never had. And because she has you as a mom, she needs someone who will protect her like I do.”
“Don’t lie to me.” She laughed bitterly. “I’m not stupid, so here I am telling you the truth. Your feelings for her are disgusting. You will get nowhere in life with them, so use that smart brain of yours and forget about Autumn before it’s too late.”
I watched as Christian’s jaw clenched. He looked ready to fight her, but just like me he seemed to notice how sure she was of this. Somehow, she could see how Christian felt about me and that left me terrified.
“You’re not my mom,” Christian suddenly said casually, losing all of his anger. “Don’t tell me what to do.”
My moms eyes widened and I could see the hurt in her eyes. Even I was caught off guard by what he said, but at this point I didn’t feel sympathy for my mom. All I could feel was hate.
“I’m happy for that,” my mom replied, regaining her composure. “I don’t want my child having these taboo feelings.”
Christian rolled his eyes. He looked too tired to fight, so he turned around and walked away from her.
Passing me, he mumbled, “I’m done. Let’s leave.”
I didn’t know why I didn’t follow him when he went upstairs, but as I stared at my mom who was glaring at me, I realized I was furious. Furious at the way she talked to Christian. Furious at the way she treated me. She needed to feel my own wrath for once.
“Don’t you ever talk to Christian like that again,” I snapped. “Leave your petty hatred for me.”
“Don’t you dare tell me you’ve fallen for him too,” she hissed. “Don’t you dare.”
I stepped forward, suddenly feeling courageous. With my heart pumping and adrenaline pumping through me, I suddenly felt invincible.
“And what if I do,” I replied, smiling sweetly. “What are you going to do about it?”
Her eyes widened and I smiled smugly. That news would be the worst thing to her, and oddly I was satisfied with that. Right now, I just wanted to see her burn.
“That better be a joke,” she said, her eyes burning. “Autumn, I swear to god if-”
“It is one,” I cut in, knowing not to test the waters too much. “But answer me. I want to know.”
Her eyes narrowed and she stepped towards me, closing off the distance between us. With her brown eyes right in front of me, looking cold, I found fear blooming in me. Fear that I tried to ignore, but couldn’t because the topic at hand was one that meant a lot to me.
“I would disown you,” she replied almost quietly. “You’ll be out of this house in a heartbeat.”
My eyes widened, even though I should have expected that. I didn’t know why, but I was caught off guard by that fact that she would actually do that to me, her daughter. By now I realized she was not even a true mother, and that Christian and I had to be careful. As much as I wanted to get away from her, I didn’t want to be homeless.
“Well, it looks like I’m lucky then.” I stepped away from her and turned around.
Without waiting for her reply, I walked off. With only anger and fear burning through me, I stormed upstairs and into my room. For the first time, I felt like I truly hated my mom.
