Like a Dream

Look at that cover design!

“Well?” Georgia pressed.

“What’s going on?” Collin asked.

“Nothing!” Alexandria shouted. She was surprised at how high her voice rose. She’d never yelled at them before and felt a rush of dizziness, and fear.

“Something is going on. What are you hiding?” Collin demanded.

She straightened her face and gritted her teeth. If she acted defensive, maybe they would back off. “Just mind your own business, both of you! I’m so sick of you two always dictating my life and telling me what to do. I’m an adult now, and it’s time you two accept it!”

Georgia’s and Collin’s mouths flew open. “Who the hell are you talking to? Your mother and I have given you everything!” Collin growled.

“Well, I never asked for any of it! You can keep your damn money!” Before she could walk away, Collin snatched her arm.

“Don’t you ever speak to us like that again, do you hear me?” he screamed. Alexandria started to cry. The conversation was getting worse and out of control.

“You’re hurting me, let go!” she pleaded.

“Collin, stop it!” Georgia shouted.

“No! If she’s going to act like an ungrateful child, I’m going to treat her like one!”

“Stop it! Stop it!” Georgia begged.

“Let me go!” Alexandria screamed again, but Collin wouldn’t let go and started shaking her and calling her unappreciative and spoiled. She couldn’t hold it in anymore; vomit spewed out of her mouth like a waterfall. She wipes her mouth and whispers, “I’m pregnant.”

As she looked at her parents’ stunned faces, thoughts of Cash entered her mind.
