Snippet- Twisted Tales of the Heart- Preston
“You got my message last night, Preston.”
Preston stood still, almost in a state of shock mixed with panic as Stephanie stood in the middle of his driveway. “Stephanie, what are you doing here?” he asked in a cold tone. “We have an agreement.
Preston watched Stephanie as she moved closer to his front door, closer to him.
“What agreement? I don’t know what you’re talking about.”
“You know exactly what I’m talking about, Stephanie.” You’re not supposed to come to my house; the house that I share with Don!” he said, a bit too loudly.
“The house you share with Don,” Stephanie mocked. “Well, I am the mother of your child and I should be able to come here anytime I want.”
Preston stared at Stephanie, choosing to remain quiet.
“If you want to keep spending time with Jordan, then I suggest you act like you have some sense.”
“Stephanie, please leave. I have to go to work, and I am running late as it is,” he pleaded.
Stephanie laughed loudly. “I’m not going anywhere until I’m good and damn ready to go!” she answered. “You can’t make—”
“Shhh! Lower your voice,” Preston interrupted, looking back at the door.
“Why? You don’t want your little boyfriend to know that your son’s mother is here?”
Preston smiled as he waved at his neighbor. “Good Morning, Ms. Mary,” he called out. “How are you doing today?”
“Good Morning, Preston,” his neighbor responded while grabbing her newspaper.
“You can’t speak to me?” Stephanie harshly blurted out to Preston’s neighbor.
The elderly neighbor frowned and shook her head and headed back into her house.
“Stephanie that was uncalled for.
“Well, I am standing here too. She could’ve spoken to me.”
“Look, Stephanie, I really need—”
“Why is she here?” Donald asked, interrupting Preston’s plea.
“Well, well, well, look who decided to come out and enjoy the party,” Stephanie sarcastically said as she rolled her eyes.
Preston put his head down and Donald had a look of pure disgust on his face.
“Donald, let me explain something to you,” Stephanie said with a hint of anger in her voice. “Preston and I belong together. We have a five-year-old son together who needs both parents in the same house. You do understand that, right?”
Preston sighed and continued to keep his head down. I wish she would just leave, he thought to himself.
“Um, Stephanie, I am well aware that you two share a son but that’s all you share,” Donald calmly responded. “Now, I suggest you get off our property before I call the police.”
Preston looked up, glancing around to see if more neighbors had come out to catch a glimpse of the drama that was unfolding.
Stephanie laughed loudly. “I’m not going anywhere. Not until I talk some sense into my baby daddy’s head.”
“Okay, have it your way,” Donald said. “The police will escort you off my property.” Donald pulled his phone out of his pocket, placing his keys onto the porch swing.
In a blink of an eye, Preston watched Stephanie leap onto Donald, turning into a woman possessed, kicking and thrashing around.
