Exhale. With my mother I find myself doing that more often than I should. Another breath and I looked at my mother in such a way that it looks as if I’m facing her but concentrating all my emotion and focus on the door ajar. “No, I am not sleeping with him mom.” I said in the most level voice possible to conceive. “You have brains Autumn, it would be a shame. But I have reason to believe you are. You are not to be with him anymore.” Mortified. Breaking. Silence. What could I possibly say. I was. She walked away I said nothing. My upcoming actions would be louder than my words.
