Chapter 27

Melissa sat there looking at Kelly as Paul helped her sit down. Matthew went to her and stood behind her.

“I’m here baby,” Matthew said.

“Me too honey,” Peter said.

“Mother?” Kelly asked.

“I’m here,” Melissa said.

“Surprised to see me?” Kelly asked.

“Yes,” Melissa said.

“What do you think of your handywork?” Kelly asked.

“Oh Kelly, I deeply regret what I did, you did not deserve it, I would give anything to go back to that day and not do what I did to you,” Melissa said.

“Why did you?” Kelly asked.

“I blamed you for ruining my life when it was me who ruined my own life, I regret everything, I know saying I’m sorry won’t be enough but it’s all I can say at this point,” Melissa said.

“I can’t forgive you for this,” Kelly said.

“I don’t forgive myself,” Melissa said.

“There is a possibility that I won’t regain my eyesight, I might be able to get rid of the scars but as for my eyes, I might not regain it,” Kelly said.

“Oh god Kelly!” Melissa said. She broke down crying. Kelly sat there listening.

“You will still be my mom but things won’t be like they were before,” Kelly said.

“I know they won’t be,” Melissa said.

“Mom,” Paul said.

“Paul,” Melissa said.

“You going to behave in here?” Paul asked.

“Yes I am,” Melissa said.

“That’s why I haven’t filed for a divorce yet,” Peter said.

“Just get better and we will see where things stand, it’s too hard for me to forgive you,” Kelly said.

“I’m working on it, I am being sincere about everything, I’m not saying what you all would want to hear, I am being completely honest with you all, I would give anything to go back in time back to before I messed up,” Melissa said.

“I’m going to need to speak to you alone, Melissa,” Peter said.

“We will be waiting outside,” Paul said. Matthew helped Kelly up and out the door with Paul behind them. They found the waiting room and sat down.

“What could he need to speak to her alone about,” Kelly said.

“What if he tells her that he doesn’t want a divorce,” Paul said.

“I know why she slept with my brother,” Matthew said.

“Matt?” Kelly asked.

“She thought he cheated on her, she said she found lipstick on his collar of his shirt,” Matthew said.

“Dad cheated?” Paul asked.

“No, he told her that a client came onto him and tried to kiss him but got his collar instead when he was pushing her away,” Matthew said.

“How long have you known about this?” Kelly asked.

“Just before you guys got here today, he asked her why she slept with my brother,” Matthew said.

“I can’t believe this,” Kelly said.

“What, that your mother made an assumption that led her to destroy her marriage to your father and put the blame on you,” Matthew said.

“How did she think that Kelly destroyed her life,” Paul said.

“Because she didn’t stay together with Mitch, your mother wanted them to stay together so she would have a reason to stay away from him and not ruin her marriage to your father,” Matthew said.

“She wanted me to stay with a cheater, a man who wasn’t even my husband to begin with, now I know I can never forgive her,” Kelly said.

“I’m sorry baby,” Matthew said.

“I need to get out of here, Matt, let’s go home,” Kelly said.

“Okay baby, Paul, you should stay so you can take your father home,” Matthew said.

“I will,” Paul said. Matthew helped Kelly out to his car and took her home and got her settled into bed. He sat beside her and held her as she fell asleep.
