~7~ (Friday, September 7, 2012; 2:30 PM)
I walked inside and the clock informed me that it was 2:30.
It was then that my phone rang, and I looked down to see that it was my father calling.
Every bad emotion I had towards him came to me. Anger, mostly, was in control of my voice when I answered.
“What do you want?”
“I heard that Luke is missing!” Dad said, desperately.
“Thanks for your concern.” I said, sarcastically condescending. “Luke’s family is handling it.”
“I am Luke’s family, Jack.”
“Really?” I shot back. “Luke’s family wouldn’t have destroyed his world. Luke’s family wouldn’t have walked out on him.”
“How are you and your mother doing?”
“Mother is drinking, like she has been since you left.” I said. “And I’m being the man of the family you never were.”
“Well…is there anything I can do?” He asked.
I glanced over to the stack of bills I saw on the counter.
“Wire me a few thousand dollars.” I said.
“A few thousand dollars?” He asked.
“I know you can afford it.” I said. “It’s the least you can do. Just tell the secretary you’re fucking that she’s not getting any more diamond gifts from you for a few weeks.”
Jack is sassy af omg
