14. 𝐖𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐍𝐨𝐰?

I hated confrontation but this was not something I couldn't hide. There's no way I'd be able to act as if everything is fine when it's not. I was never good at playing the hypocrite so I won't even attempt to try.  I didn't even know who I was more upset at him or her. I don't care if she got held back a grade and is one year older than the rest of us making her eighteen. It was still weird.

I opened the front door to see my favorite person accompanied by my least favorite person.

"Hey kiddo, I left work early guess who came over not only that he came with gifts and an announcement" Dad was forcing the enthusiasm as best as he could but he doing so awful.

"I saw his car, where he at?" I said removing my jacket.

Uncle Kevin was my least favorite family member was here. He's dad younger brother and by younger he was 32 years old and now I found out he's messing around with my eighteen year old friend I disliked him even more. We weren't close to him for several reasons but mainly since he was literally the most disgusting human being alive.

"Aye niecy!" He yelled with open arms. He awkwardly closed them once he realized I wasn't about to budge.

"I hope you still like writing. I saw this pretty dope journal and thought I should get you it" He said taking up the bag from the table that was close to him.

"Nah, I don't write anymore" I lied.

"You good El?" Dad asked. He was never good with just being quiet and follow the lead.

"Yeah, can I just head up to my room?" I asked as politely as I could but I'm sure my face wasn't really making it any better.

"But you ain't even heard the news I came with" He said excitedly.

"Ok, Shoot" I folded my arms with a face as straight as the hands of a clock that just struck 6:00.

"Y'all remember Stephanie right?" Dad and I shook our heads together. I remember meeting her at a barbecue one summer but it was a really long time ago.

"See I've been talking to her for a minute, we've been on and off but long story short I proposed. The wedding is coming up and I want y'all there" Dad face looked as if he smelled shit the way he was screwing at him.

You could easily tell this was the dumbest shit we've ever heard.

"Wow, men are trash" I scoffed before walking off.

He has a whole fiancé and messing with a kid in high school? that's crazy. Scarlet decided to secretly hook up with of all persons my uncle, I've never been placed in such a weird situation before.

Most girls fetishized older guys but by older I'm used to college boys not men who were getting their first set of pubic hair while they just got pushed out. I really don't want to see her get hurt and I know Scarlet never ever takes anyone seriously, so I guess this might just be another little experiment. Should I say shit? Should I just keep quiet? this is beyond fucked up.

Kevin was obnoxious, greedy, a womanizer, selfish, self-centered and I could on about all the stuff about him that annoyed me but who knew he would be a pedophile too. I don't care if she's legal that's not his age group and to top it off he's getting married. Literal trash.
