Melody was getting used to her new body’s needs with all of the frequent trips to the bathroom, fatigue, and cravings. She went to bed very early one night, and was awake early the next morning. She was hungry and went to the kitchen for some leftover salad. But something was drawing her upstairs. She wasn’t sure what it was, but she had to find out. She mounted the stairs with her salad in hand and saw her father in the hallway. At first she was very excited to see him, but then she felt nervous. Would he be disappointed in her? There was only one way to find out.
She slowly walked closer to him and braced herself for whatever he may say.
“Hello, my darling.”
“I have something to tell you…if you don’t already know.”
“I’m going to have a baby.”
“OH WOW! Congratulations, kid! Paxton, right? I bet he’s super excited!”
“He’s not. He left.”
“He did WHAT?!”
“He left me…the baby…whatever. We’re not together anymore.”
“Oh no no no no NO!! NOBODY leaves MY child!!”
“The Giancarlo is displeased, and he will NOT get away with this!! I’m gonna float over to his house…and I’m gonna…gonna possess all his STUFF…until it breaks! AND THEN…uhhh…and then…I’m gonna make some kids release 1000 gerbils in his house! And then, I’m going to possess HIM and make his bladder fail and make him laugh hysterically until he–”
“Daddy, no! I still love him.”
“Ok. I was just kidding anyway. You should have seen the look on your face!”
“That wasn’t funny, Daddy.”
“Come here, my darling. You’re going to be all right. I know you are.”
