She Thinks I Don’t Know

On some nights, I had to put myself to bed. I’ve never been one to stay home alone, but with my big brother next door, I rested safely in my bed. Mom’s late again.

Loud voices wake me up. I opened my door and peered into the living room. It’s just the t.v. Mom’s laying on the couch asleep, a paper in her hand. It reads “Dear Eric,” The third one I’ve found.

She thinks that Jeremy and I don’t know what’s going on. She thinks we won’t understand. In her mind, keeping him a secret is for our own good. Does she think we won’t be happy for her? Does she know how much it hurts for her to lie to us, especially when we already know the truth.
