SUNDAY, DECEMBER 25TH

One of her steps.

3pm


 I’m putting our gifts from Santa in my room when my phone rings. I look down and see that it’s B. I had texted him, along with all my other friends, last night, wishing them a Merry Christmas, but he was the only one I hadn’t heard back from.

“Hey, B!” I say. “Merry Christmas!”

“Keats, um . . . shit.” 

“Brooklyn, what’s wrong? Are you crying? Are you okay?”

“Not really. My mom just called me.”

“Your mom? But it’s been . . .”

“Eleven years.”

“What did she say?”

“That she was sorry. She’s apparently going through rehab and trying to get her life together. I’m one of her steps.”

“Do you know why she left?”

“She says she left because my dad was too controlling and she was tired of him telling her what to do.”

“That might be a good excuse for why she left him. It doesn’t explain why she left you.”

“I always thought it was because I got in trouble for not paying attention at school.”

“Is that what you’ve thought all these years?”

“I did when I was younger. Now, I know that’s not why you leave someone. She wants to see me.”

“Are you going to?”

“My dad will be pissed.”

“Brooklyn, you’re twenty years old. You’re in charge of your life.”

He sighs. “I’m not in control of anything, Keats. My dad controls my career. Fucking security controls everything else. I’m sick of everyone telling me what to do and people getting mad at me for what I can’t do.”
