The moment I opened the door I knew it was going to be on for young and old. So not waiting for Knox (I no longer think of him as John) was about to start ranting about whatever it was he was here for, I quickly pushed him back with a hand slapped across his mouth and shut the door behind me.
"You will wait to speak. You will not say a thing when my children are likely to hear you." I snapped at him in a low growl as I continued to push him away from my home.
I flicker of his eyes behind me had me twisting bak to look at the trailer to see that there was three little faces staring out as us.
I gave them one of my mean faces that means business if you don't do what I say.
Or in this case, I was meaning for them to get away from the window or else. Which they quickly did. But knowing Sasha, she will be having her face squished up against one of the lace curtains and trying to see what was happening out here.
Then I turned back to Knox again.
"What do you want?" I snapped at him when I thought we were far enough away and I removed my hand to wipe it against my jeans.
He was looking pretty angry for some reason and for the life of me, I couldn't figure out why.
"You're moving again? To get away from us." he spat out at me in a low angry voice.
"I don't know why you're suprprised. You were the one to tell me to stay away from you and here you are always around making that difficult. You can't have it both ways. So I was thinking it is best if we go. I can't understand why you're angry about it, let alone how you heard about it anyway since Judy and I were just talking about it not too long ago. " I snapped back at him as I poked his chest a few times.
"My boy came home upset that you are moving after hearing it from Matthew." Knox went on to say in another angry tone of voice.
It was nice of him to categorize his children to me I thought as my eyes began to glare at him.
"I don't know why it would be upsetting your boy when it has nothing to do with him.. or you for that matter. But what does concern me is my children and how they will be affected by you. So don't come around here again going off on me because of something you have caused in the first place." I said as I turned to walk back to the trailer and the kids I know were up on a top bunk peaking out at me and Daniel's father who were having words.
"But Neena, I came here for you and the kids." I heard him say behind me which had me twisting back at him.
"For what? So we can all be a twisted little family. No thank you. I already experienced that and I don't want it. Not for me and not for my children. It might be better if you kept your son away from here in future. That way, he won't go home upset, will he?" I whispered back at him in an angry tone knowing that he would hear me.
Then ignoring him calling me again, I opened the door and stomped my way inside, shutting the door behind me.
I didn't hear him after that, so I assumed that he took himself off. What he and his son do, I don't care. But if they affect my family, that's a different matter. I will step in and do something then.
So for the next week, the kids came home without their little shadow with them. And to be honest, I didn't like it since my kids were not the happy little campers they were before they met the kid.
