Today I recieved some of the most shocking news in all of my 17 years. I overheard my real dad (who is divorced from my mother, but we maintain regular contact) talking to this girl in the hairdressers, he knew from who knows where about his kids. He starts saying "well, these 4 are mine (my brothers and I), and my fiance has triplets," and then it came. "And I also have a 26 year old son that I have lost contact with."
My jaw went fucking slack, and I desperatly surveyed my brain for some logic. Maybe he was joking around? I chimed in with an "excuse me? What other kid?" Thats when it hit him. He sat down and tried to explain himself. He said, "I had a boy before I met your mother, with a girl who I havent seen in around 20 years." My dad is a pretty laid back guy, but this was serious. From there I told him that we should talk later, becasue the crowded hairdresser was not an appropriate place for a discoverey of that magnitude. I am 17 years old, and all my life I have not known about this brother of mine.
I cannot explain why, but I havent had the courage to bring it up again with him, ANd I guess I can just go to NS for some sort of mentalp guidance regarding this heavy situation.
