It had been a long week, so I closed my office early and drove home for the weekend. We had a lot of issues with several cases and a project were nothing went as planned. We were about to receive fines and had a possible lawsuit hanging over us if thing things didn’t start to work out soon. The only thing I wanted to do was to relax and spend a quiet weekend with my lovely wife and daughter.
When I came home there was an unknown car parked in the driveway. As I entered the house I heard some strange sounds coming from the second floor. I rushed upstairs and entered my daughter’s room. The first thing I saw was a pale ass hovering over my daughter’s equally naked body.
“YOU PIECE OFF SHIT! GET AWAY FROM MY DAUGHTER, OR I’LL RIP YOUR HEAD OFF!”
“DAD!” my daughter screamed.
The worthless piece off shit jumped off her, his cock now hanging limp, and trying to crawl inside his body.
“DON’T EVEN THINK ABOUT GETTING DRESSED. IF YOU’RE NOT OUT OFF MY HOUSE IN TWO SECONDS YOU ARE GOING TO REGREAT THE DAY OF YOUR BIRTH!”
The now stuttering wreck off a boy grabbed his clothes and jumped right out the door.
The second he was out the reality started to hit me. Every parent’s nightmare, finding out that your little child is not as little, and not as innocent as you wanted to believe. My 18 year old daughter, always my little sunshine, which I have tried to keep shielded from what I believe to be a corrupted world today. Her mother and I had tried to teach her about the things in this world, told her that love was something beautiful, and that she should wait until she found the special man for her to share that with.
Because then the intimacy between them would mean so much more and they would have a beautiful moment to share between themselves for the first time together. That people today, not even aware of it, always take with them their previous lovers into new relationships, and compares every little detail, that this lots of times leads to disappointment and sometimes cheating on one another or the breakings of marriage and relationships. My wife and I are strong believers of good morale and had tried to teach it to our daughter, clearly we had failed big time.
I looked over at my daughter, and couldn’t help it. Tears started to drain down my cheeks, and I was completely numbed. I didn’t know what to say, as I was at a total loss for words, and I don’t think I would have been able to say anything at that moment. I turned around barely able to walk and stumbled through the door.
“Dad! Please wait,” Judith said just before her voice cracked and she started crying.
I went down in the basement to my office and crashed in the office chair. My mind was in turmoil. Should I have seen this coming? Was this my fault? After a hard week, this was the final straw, and I fell asleep on my desk, and was woken by my wife stroking my hair a few hours later.
“Honey, are you okay, is something wrong?”
“No and yes darling. I’m not okay. I got home early today and found Judith having sex with some guy in her room.”
“WHAT? What did you say to her?”
“Honestly I wasn’t able say anything. I kicked out the guy, and rushed out of her room afraid that I would have a break down.”
“Aww honey,” my wife said and placed my head on her chest, stroking my hair.
“Judith has always been your precious baby girl.”
“I don’t know if I’m able to talk to her at the moment. Maybe you should talk with her. I thought we had taught her better values then this, and I still can’t believe this happened.”
“Neither can I, I’m just glad that I didn’t catch her like that. I don’t know how I would have reacted, and I guess you’re right. I should have a long talk with her. I just can’t believe Judith would do something like that.”
“Thanks honey, I had a really though week at work and this just took all the air out of me.”
“Well, why don’t you take a long shower and relax on the couch for a while, and I’ll talk to our daughter before making dinner.”
“Thank you,” I said and gave her a long kiss.
“I’m so glad we are old fashioned you and me, I couldn’t have bared the thought of us leaving each other just because so many others do.”
“Me neither,” my wife said and hugged me close.
The shower helped a bit on the sore muscles after a hard week, but my mind and heart would take some time to heal. The TV didn’t have much to offer, but I was able to find some old series on rerun. My wife came and sat down with me, hugging me close.
“Dinner is ready sweetheart.”
“I’m sorry, but I don’t have much of an appetite right now.”
“I know, but try to eat a little bit at least, and we can take an early evening afterwards. This is not easy for any of us.”
Our daughter came down to join us at the table for dinner, and I don’t think we ever have shared a dinner in completely silence like that. I couldn’t look at my daughter at all, and wasn’t able to eat anything. Finally I got up and left the room without a word spoken.
It was still early, but I just didn’t have any energy left, so I got into bed. Sleep wouldn’t come easy tonight. My wife got into bed a bit later, and cuddled up against me. I hugged her close, and she stroked my back and hair soothingly.
“I’m sorry honey, I might be overreacting and seem like an overprotecting father, but she’s our only child, and I had such strong hopes and expectations for her. She could enlighten my darkest day with her smile and laughter just like you, and we always seemed to have a good and close relationship.
I feel like I’m losing her, well honestly I feel like I’ve lost her already. I don’t like the way the world have turned today, and I hoped that our daughter wouldn’t be like that, but I guess I’m just a hopeless dreamer unable to see the reality in it all.”
“No darling. I’m at loss for words just as you, and I know how close you two have always been. Don’t worry, sweetie I’m here for you and just take your time. I know how hard this must be for you, and it is for me too, but we don’t always know our reactions to things and incidents and we just have to work ourselves through it at our own pace.
I know this will take some time for you. I’m here for you, but please don’t shut me out. Let me know what you’re thinking and I’ll help you as best as I can. We’ll help each other, and we’ll come through it like we always do.”
The sleep overpowered me sometime during the night, but it was a restless sleep and I was as tired as the night before when I woke up.
We always use to eat together as a family, because we think that a meal bonds both family and friends together. Nothing was said during the breakfast, and my appetite wasn’t much present today either. After breakfast Judith rushed back to her bedroom, and I helped Katie to clean up.
“I’ll talk to her later,” my wife said.
“But I think she needs to be alone and think through her actions a while before I talk to her. Why don’t you and I spend the day in the garden today, and do some of the work we planned, and try to make both you and I to think of something else for a couple of hours?”
“Yes, I think that would be a good idea. I love you Katie, I don’t know what I would have done without you. You truly are my better half. I just can’t see how I can be anything for you.”
“No baby, don’t say that. I love you too. You always make me feel safe and protected, you totally spoil me, and I have always been happy with you. We are just a bit different you and I. We fulfill each other in many ways. I guess I have always been rational and structural about many things. You are an emotional and passionate person, and that is some of the things I love about you. We’re just a bit different. Don’t be too hard on yourself. We both got hurt by our daughter’s actions, but we deal with it differently.”
“Thanks again honey,” I said and gave her a long kiss and a good hug.
“And yes, I’m happier with you than I could have ever imagined. To cuddle up to you on the couch after a hard day and see your beautiful smile, to wake up beside my beautiful girl every day makes my life worth living. I guess I’m just embarrassed that my emotions sometimes get the better of me. Come baby; let’s tend to your garden.”
The garden work that day actually helped some as Katie made sure that I always was busy doing something, and didn’t have time to think about the incident yesterday. I didn’t see Judith all day, and was glad to have my mind on something else for a while. My wife was a nurse but would have made a high class psychiatrist. We made a lot of work in the garden, skipped lunch and worked until early afternoon. Katie gave me a kiss and thanked me for the help, which she had wanted to have done for some while now.
“No, thank you. For helping me by having my mind on something else for a couple of hours.”
I cleaned up a bit, as Katie started on dinner. As I approached the kitchen I was actually surprised to be hungry. My mood of course was pretty much the same as yesterday, and the thought of facing my daughter once again made my stomach flip. Throughout dinner I couldn’t help to notice that my daughter kept looking at me. I tried to look up sometimes, but then she would glance towards the floor in clear embarrassment. Not much was said, and after dinner I went to the garage and spent some time cleaning and organizing.
