We walked out of the house, with my dad screaming in the backround. Jacob grabbed my hand and we walked over to the door. I whipped my hand away from his, angry that he had lied to me. He promised that he told my dad. I never thought Jake would be that kind of person. And now because of his lie I was homeless and fatherless.
I looked up at Jacob with anger in my eyes. There were no words for how angry I was.
"How could...why would...you...you promised...I never thought...but you...DID" I stuttered. Jacob wouldn't look at me, just stared at his shoes.
"Would you just look at me please. I mean after what you did in there. I mean my dad hates me know. HATES ME! You promised me that you got his blessing and permission. But, you didn't and I never thought you would do this to me or at all!" I cried.
"I have no home. No where to stay. All because you didn't the guts to tell my dad. And now..." I just couldn't finish the sentence after what he did. I didn't even know if I wanted to marry him anymore.
We stood there in silence for a few minutes, I was deep in thought about the whole thing and just thinking about our future together.
"Listen Natalie..." Jacob started. "Just let me explain. I don't think he hates you he just..."
"Explain what?! Why you didn't tell my dad? Or why you lied to me about telling my dad? OF Course he hates me now. All because of..." I couldn't finish that last sentece.. The flame of my anger was starting to burn out.
I took a huge breath in and calmed my voice. "Jacob, why don't we talk about this later. I mean I have bigger problems, I have to deal with. For example, finding somewhere to spend the night. Or find someway to explain to my Dad about everything." I sighed.
Jacob, why on Earth did you have to lie? I mean my life was perfect, til that lie. Why would you do this to us? Everything just went from simple to impossible. In what seems to be like a split-second.
Jacob seemed to be debating somethinng in his head, because after a few minutes in intense thinking he spoke.
"Listen Natalie, I know your mad and I get that. I don't know why I did what I did but, I can give you some money and drive you to a motel. I don't think it's wise for us to stay together tonight after what happened."
"That sounds good, I guess. You don't need to give me money though. I have a couple of bucks left that I can use."
"Ok fine, how much money do you have with you?"
"I have like $25 dollars. Please just take me to the nearest motel and drop me off. I will be fine." I told Jacob. You could tell by his voice he was upset with himself.
I opened the door to his truck and hopped in. I stared into space most of the time we were driving to the motel. Not that there would be a lot of talking between us. The nearest motel was "Sunset Escape". The name is super cheesy and the whole motel smells of cat-pee.
"Ok here we are. Um...I will see you later." Jacob said not looking at me.
"Ok, thanks." I got out of the car and walked to the office. The manager looked at me through his one good eye. He was balding, looked like he hadn't eaten for days, and just looked in bad shape all together.
"Hi, um...one room please." I said uneasily.
"Ok, here you go miss. It that will be $19.99. We have free breakfast at 9:30 tomarrow. " The manager's deep voice went.
"Thanks" I said, handing him the money.
I walked to my room B20. I was at the very end of the building and it seemed the forgotten room. I opened the door and the smell of cat-pee overwelmed me when I first walked in. I went into the bathroom for some air-freshiner to mask the pee. There was a plug-in freshiner, so I plugged it in near my bed. I sat in the bed and put the covers over me. It had only been last night when I snuggled up to Jake and the world seemed perfect. Almost too perfect. And in an almost 24 hour period my life had turned upside down. My father now hated me, Jake was mad at me for getting mad at him, and it now seemed that I wasn't going to marry the man I had once loved. I was no unsure if this was the man I wanted to spend my life with. If this is how Jacob is going to act, how will our married life be? Would Jacob cheat on me?
Natalie, now your overeacting. No, Natalie , your not. The two sides of my brain thought. What about your dad? What are you going to say. 'Dad, Jake's a jerk and we are getting married' Does that sound right?! NO IT DOESN'T! Why are you giving him a second chance he doesn't deserve it. And he never will. So, don't try to forgive him. Just move on.
