“Now tell me how you figure you can ignore my calls and stay out all night when you have my son to take care of!” Terrence barked at Felicia.
“You know it isn’t even like that. How often do I go out? And you know TJ was well-cared for. I would never do anything to put him in harm’s way! I can’t believe that you think I would!”
“I know you aren’t raising your voice at me! You better respect me when you talk to me!” Terrence warned as he closed the distance between him and Felicia.
Backing up, attempting to regain some space, Felicia responded, “I can’t with you anymore, Terrence! I swear I put up with so much junk from you. And for what? You are in MY house telling me to respect you.” Laughing, Felicia continued, “You don’t even know what that word means. You come and go as you please. You don’t help me with anything except giving me headaches and stressing me the freak out. Hell, you can’t possibly love me. You have a woman at home, with more kids that you do nothing for. You…”
“I take care of mine!” Terrence interjected. “You sound like you have been letting Jessica get all up in your head with the crap you speaking.”
“No, Terrence, this is all me! I can’t take it anymore! I can’t take you! I can’t take taking care of you and all of your kids! I can’t take always making myself available to you! I can’t take not living my life because I stupidly think that you will one day change and do right by me! All you take care of is yourself. Maybe it’s time that I do the same.”
Surprising Felicia, Terrence suddenly lunged forward and wrapped his hands around her neck. Applying enough pressure to make her take notice, Terrence said, “Don’t start something that you can’t finish. You’re being real reckless with your words right now. What are you going to do without me? Be careful what you sayin’.”
Gaining some inner strength, Felicia stood as tall as she could and said, “This is the last time that you put your hands on me! Let go of my neck and get out of my house!”
Terrence released his grip, realizing that Felicia was serious and coming from a place he didn’t recognize. “My bad, Felicia, you know that I love you. You gotta stop making me act like this.”
“Nah, I don’t have to stop making you do anything. This is the last time that I’m going to tell you to leave. As far as TJ is concerned, I will let the courts handle that.”
Stepping back, Terrence lost the edge when he spoke, “I will leave because I can see that I have upset you. We will talk when you calm down. And you aren’t taking my son from me, so don’t do anything stupid.”
As Felicia stood and said nothing, Terrence continued to back towards the door. Once at the door, he turned and let himself out without another word. Only time would tell if he really got what Felicia had said to him. For now, at least he was gone and Felicia was still standing.
I can’t take taking care of you and all of your kids! I can’t take always making myself available… Click To Tweet
