“Okay,” I heard Luke say on the phone while we were in our room. Even though Dad was gone and the fighting stopped, Luke still stayed in my room. I think he didn’t want to be lonely. But, neither did I.
“Okay, sounds good. Okay, bye.” Luke said as he hung up.
“Who was that?” I asked.
“It was…no one.” Luke said, his face turning a little red.
“Was it a girl? A special girl? A girl you like?” I asked spunkily.
“No.” Luke said, his face getting even redder with a smile growing across his face.
“It totally was a girl!” I said. “What’s her name?”
“It wasn’t a girl!” Luke insisted.
“Okay...Was it a... boy?” I asked, trying to sound open if he was dating a guy.
“It was Dad.” Luke said, bluntly. There was an awkward silence before Luke followed it up with, “So yeah, it was technically a boy.”
“Why were you talking to Dad?” I asked, my tone suddenly becoming more serious.
“Because, Jack,” Luke said while sitting down next to me. “I miss him. Yeah what he did was bad but he’s still our father.”
“He just abandoned us, Luke.” I pointed out. “How could you trust, or even want to be around him after he does something like that to us?”
“Because I don’t want to loose him forever!” Luke said. “I want him in my life. And I’m sorry if you don’t agree with me but it’s my choice.”
“Fine.” I said. “Do whatever you want.” I said before storming out of the room.
awwww Jack had a fight with Luke just days before Luke disappeared :(
Tomorrow's chapter. Y'all. This is what you've been waiting for.
