Cadence lightly knocked on her son’s bedroom door. “Honey?” She questioned quietly through the door. “Can I come in?”
“Yeah, mom.” His voice replied.
Cadence opened the door slowly and peered into his room. Her son of sixteen years sat at his desk, staring at the wall. He glanced back at her as she shut the door behind her. She stared into those similar dark brown eyes that she had fallen in love with sixteen years ago.
“Your brother is wondering where you disappeared to. He wants you to be there when he opens his presents.” She commented, staring at the beautiful son that was created.
He sighed, “I know, I’ll be back down.”
Cadence took a seat on her sons made up bed. She crossed her legs and tucked a strand of light auburn hair behind her ear. She patted the empty spot next to her motioning for him to sit there. He got up and plopped down next to her in a heap. She leaned her head on her hand and looked at him.
“What’s going on? You don’t normally hide in your room when there’s family over.” She told him concerned.
“It’s just…” He trailed off. “You had told me that he wasn’t my real dad, but you never did tell me about my biological dad. I’m sixteen now and I want to know.” He paused with a distraught look upon his face. “Aunt Lexi told me that I had eyes just like him, but she wouldn’t say anything else about him!” He exasperated.
“Oh sweetheart,” Cadence cooed and rubbed her son’s back. “I’m sorry I never told you about him. It’s just hard, thinking of him brings back a lot of painful memories.”
He sighed and frowned. “Is it too painful to talk about him now?” He ushered and looked at her hopefully.
She smiled sadly as thoughts of him came rushing back. “I suppose I could handle it.” His smile brightened and Cadence felt a pang in her heart at the similar toothy grin.
“After everyone leaves, okay?” He nodded. “Now, I believe your brother wants you.” He jumped up and bolted out the door. Chatter and laughter filtered into the room from downstairs, as Cadence stared at the doorway. She was going to have to talk about him. She swallowed hard and stood up with a furrowed brow. It was time to tell his story so she could fully let go.
That was hard to do when her son was the spiting image of him. The way her son laughed, his eyes, his smile, his hair, even the way he looked down when he was extremely happy as he smiled. Cadence felt tears sting her eyes at his happy, smiling face. She smiled sadly before standing up and clearing her mind.
She went back downstairs with a smile back on her face and any sense of him wiped from her mind. Her husband stood at the foot of the stairs waiting for her. His copper eyes bore into her faltering smile as she came to the bottom. He wrapped his arm around her shoulder and kissed her head. “What was that about?” He questioned.
