Can You Ever Go Back? - Another Chapter to add to Story Without an End by Jodah.
A new chapter
Another short fictional add on, to continue Jodah's "Story Without an End." I have written another scenario to the saga to add to the story that John Hanson started..... Here it is John! (a.k.a. as Jodah).
Jodah (John) began this story where Rick had phoned Susan and talked her ear off not leaving her a chance to get a word in. He told her that he had not gotten in touch with her for a few years because he had been receiving help from someone at AA. He told her that he had kicked the drinking habit and now he wanted to get back with her the way that it was before, except that he is no longer drinking.
Can you ever go back?
Rick dropped Susan and her daughter off at their home
He said he had some unfinished business to do
And would call her when he was through
To see if they were starting anew
But Susan was torn
After the storm
Philip is the one who came to their rescue
While Rick only look dazed, for an hour or two
Do you miss him too?
How did he know she would be at that café?
Had he followed her there
Did Philip really care?
Or was he being unfair?
When will we see daddy?
Courtney's little girl voice cut through her thoughts
I don't know Susan answered
Why Mommy, what did we do?
Why are you crying?
Do you miss him too?
Yes, sweetheart I do
But you father wants to get back together with me and you
Courtney's voice began to quiver
But, daddy loves me
And that father don't like me
I don't think he likes you
It is late sweetheart Susan said
We will talk about this tomorrow
As she planted a kiss on top of Courtney's head,
And tucked her into bed
Who would win and who would lose
Was she hoping Rick had changed?
And thinking she would take him back
But was she just losing Philip instead?
And when her phone rang, it filled her with dread
Are you alone, we need to talk? Phillip said
Yes, I know Susan replied
But, I was just getting ready for bed
We really do need to talk! Again Philip said
Reluctantly, Susan agreed
Phillip drove to Susan's home
Oh so glad except for Courtney
She was alone
Phillip smiled a little sadly
He said I'll get right to the point
I didn't know that was Rick
When I walked into the joint
I was afraid to tell you about Rick
Afraid with him a fight you'd pick
Afraid you would be jealous
And demand I not meet with him
I just thought he should get to know his daughter
And she should get to know him
But he wants us to get back together
To start our life again
I can't believe you followed me, Susan said.
I did not follow you; I went to get a hair cut
Then through a window saw the woman that I planned to wed
Out with another man instead
Sheepishly Susan bowed her head
When she realized how it must have looked to him
Cafés don't have barbers
Or was that your barber you brought in with you
Now it was Philip's turn to have a sheepish grin
I just met her outside
Susan asked, so you wanted to shock your fiancé
That is why you brought her inside?
I sort of knew her from high school
But she was dating the captain of the football team
Then you came along and that ended that dream.
Soon Susan and Philip were locked in a warm embrace
And she knew Rick could never take Phillip's place

I thought you were gone!
Two towns away
Rick walked in the door
Of the home where he had been living
From three years before
Jackie asked Rick, where have you been?
For three years we've not been apart
And when I needed you the most
You are breaking my heart
I thought you wanted me to leave
That is what you have been telling me
I want you to get a job and stop drinking
That is all I have been thinking
When I came home from the doctor
I found I was alone
And I thought you had left me
I thought you were gone
He lifted her chin to look into her eyes
Which from crying were swollen half shut?
And he felt as if he had been punched in the gut
He whispered I am sorry; I will do what I must
Just tell me what is wrong............
Jackie's story to be written... part fact and part fiction.
