The boy accuses his mother of cheating on his late father after noticing that she often spends nights out. He lashes out at her with accusations, but realises that the truth is far from what he thought.
Fifteen-year-old Trey sat angry on the sofa in the living room. The wall clock was 1:30 a.m., and his mother, Kate, was still not home. He noticed her leaving the house about an hour ago. That was the third time in a week that he saw her leaving the house late at night.
Six weeks ago, Trey lost his father, Albert, because he had cancer. It was a huge shock for him and Kate, and after Albert’s death, Kate was very depressed.
Trey wanted Kate to be happy again, and didn’t mind her dating. But the fact that she kept it from him and disappeared for hours at night didn’t suit him.
So as he sat on the sofa waiting for her to come home that evening, he was determined to talk to her. Twenty minutes later he finally heard the sound of her car on the gravel in front of their house.
When the front door opened and Kate walked in, she panicked because she didn’t expect Trey to be awake and sitting on the sofa like this. “Trey! Oh shit! You scared me!” – she shouts, trying to catch her breath.
Trey looks at her with his arms crossed over his chest. “So did you have a good time with your boyfriend, Mom? When are you planning on introducing me to him?”
