If I Have My Way


Chapter 1: Gone and Never Coming Back


She finally let out sob and put her face in her hands. She couldn't believe what she just witnessed. Twenty six year old Gabriella Santiago now Montez was just kicked out of her house by her husband of three years. Gabriella came home to find her bags packed by the door and another woman sitting on her couch. Gabriella looked behind her to see her daughter sleeping peacefully in her car seat. Gabriella's ex husband also made her take their three year old daughter Kadie with her. Gabriella gathered herself together sighed heavily. She had nowhere to go. Then Gabriella thought of a place. Gabriella started her car and drove off.

Gabriella reached her destination, she glanced at the house. For some reason she couldn't get out of her seat. She breathed in and exhaled heavily and finally got the courage to get out of the car. Gabriella went to the back and picked her up sleeping daughter and walked up to the house. Gabriella ranged the doorbell and hoped that someone would answer. After what felt like hours the door finally opened.

"Gabi?" The person asked shocked

"Hi Taylor." Taylor could tell that Gabriella was crying because of her eyes.

"Um…look I need a place to stay and I have nowhere else to go. I know I haven't talked to you in years, and I couldn't even remember if you still lived here or not…"

"Gabi, come inside." Gabriella smiled weakly and entered the house. Taylor closed the door and turned to face Gabriella.

"You're always welcome here Gabriella."

"Thank you Taylor."

"You're welcome, come on I'll show you to your room." Taylor began walking down the hall and Gabriella followed. Taylor opened a door and it revealed a bed with two beds. Gabriella entered the room and placed Kadie on the bed.

"There are spare towels in the bathroom and blankets in the hall closet. If you need anything just call."

"Thank you Taylor so much."

"Don't worry about it Gabriella, goodnight." Taylor said closing the door. Taylor sighed heavily and went back up stairs to her room and got back into her bed.

"Who was that?" Taylor's husband Chad asked

"It was Gabriella."

"What was she doing here?"

"She came with Kadie."

"Why?" Chad asked

"I don't know but I could tell she was crying."

"Well, we'll talk to her in the morning."

"Yeah, let's get some sleep." Taylor said as her Chad drifted off to sleep.

Back downstairs in Gabriella's room Gabriella was crying silently into her pillow. She could barely breathe, her husband just left for another woman and kicked her and her daughter out of their house. She felt like her heart was torn out of her body kicked and stomped on. She felt like dying the way her husband looked at, it was almost as if the last three years of meant nothing to him. Despite all of that, Gabriella felt a piece of her heart hope that she would get a call from her husband begging her to work this out. But he was gone and deep down Gabriella knew it.


Cause you think it's easier
Easy like that
Just when I wasn't finished
You were gone like that

Can't you hear me crying
Cause I need you back
Cause I'm slowly dying
Cause I need you bad

But you're gone and never coming back
Gone and not coming back
He's never coming back
