Chapter FIVE: Family Reunion? Yeah Right!

It 's not everyday I get woken up by my mom drunkenly screaming that she found her husband. I looked at the clock, 3:30. I had no idea how to nurse a hangover and better yet no idea how to talk to my mom even while she 's drunk. This had only happened the day my dad disappeared. After that she left me at peace and rarely came to visit.

“Sweet heart. I found your dad.” My mom proudly slurred
“Mom please don 't ever come home drunk.” I say as she jumped on my bed.

“It 's at home. I 'm gonna be late for class. All my others periods are free so ill text you.” I say walking away.
“Okay Riley. Good luck.” He said walking towards the exit.
