Residing Dreams (Chapter 63)

“Essie!I understand why you are upset with me.You have reasons to be angry.But hear me out, it’s because I love and care about you!I was going to tell you,I just didn’t know how! So when Mr. Brown showed up unexpectadely today, I thought I’d just surprise you,” he said, throwing up his hands as if to say, “What did you expect me to do?” I started sobbing again. “Well, you sure surprised me alright; that’s for damned sure!” I remarked. “Everything has just been so difficult lately! Sometimes I deem it would be easier if I just jumped off the bridge instead of ‘crossing it when I came to it’ or whatever else you said. Because now, I’m at my breaking point, and I just want to be dead!” I lamented. “Don’t you ever say that!” my father commanded. “Don’t you ever even think of taking your own life away!” He put his head in his hands and sighed. “For I felt the same way. But I guess I just am who I am, even though I have trouble dealing with that all the time. But I don’t want that to stop you from being you!”
