"We have to be careful! You’re the Moon goddess’ daughter and I’m your guardian. We have to make sure that it's really ours. Gabreelle, your safety is my number one priority. If you don’t understand that then you don't have to, but let me do my job."
“I’m not like you.” I added, “I don’t always believe in what’s in front of me, I don’t always see the good in people. In fact, I always see the bad and maybe that’s why the Moon goddess made me your Guardian. “
“So, your point is that I need a guardian ’cause I’m a gullible little girl that loves everything and believes in everything? Okay, might as well wait for a unicorn to come and rescue me and my son from this damned town!”
I wanted to laugh but my pride dominated, I groaned, “I hate this!”
“Good! because I hate this too!” she yelled.
As soon as she said that I could feel guilt eat me up. I always say what I don’t mean when I’m angry. I couldn’t swallow my pride, and I hate it.
I went to the bathroom to take a bath and brush my teeth to lessen the smell of my bad breath. I came back to our room to see Gabreelle mixing baby formula with water in a baby bottle.
I picked up our baby and sang him to sleep, I opened my mouth to say something but quickly closed it. I couldn’t swallow my pride and that’s what’s eating me up I couldn’t apologize to her right away.
She put the bottle down and lied down the bed, I felt butterflies to my stomach as I nervously opened my mouth again in attempt to apologize to gabreelle but like my first attempt no words left my mouth. I can feel beads of sweat starting to form on my forehead.
