Ashley ~ Family - Card #4

You had no intention of telling your parents yet, but your mother asked you what was wrong and you burst into tears.

“You’re pregnant, aren’t you?” she says.

You look at the floor.

“I’m so disappointed in you,” your mother says.  “Haven’t you learned anything from us?”

“Who is he?  And what the hell is wrong with you?” your father yells.  You think you hear him whisper “filthy slut” under his breath.

You’re crying and they’re yelling, at you and at each other.

“I can’t even stand to look at you anymore.  You’re a disgrace, Ashley.” Your father shoves you aside as he leaves the room.

You’re stunned and look to your mother for help, but she won’t even meet your eyes.
