What could go wrong as already gone wrong? It was two days before the senior prom and I received a call from a very raspy voiced lady, it was my mother. “Hello son”, she talked very slow with a slur in her voice.

So that same day I call my mom, and told her “I forgive her and that I was sorry for hating her for so long” she was sober this time and replied “I’m sorry for letting you down and that I am going to buy you a graduation gift”. After that, nothing really changed she didn’t show up for my prom or my graduation. But I forgive her, you see I learned not trust her and when she speaks of plan A to have a plan B and
