“Sunnie Haze” (27)

Things were back to normal at our house. It was nearing the end of the summer.

Sunnie and Fred were making the best of it. Fred was getting ready to go off to college, in Texas.

Sunnie was enrolling soon,at the local Veterinarian School.

They both were excited about the changes. Sunnie said,they both promised each other to keep in touch with e-mails. But they both could date other people,and not get mad at each other.
Sunnie said,”If it was in the cards,and we both felt the same about each other after finishing college. Then maybe we would get married.

The second week of August,Fred left for college. Sunnie was very sad,but she knew this was coming. Fred promised he would keep in touch.

Fall was coming in,the days were cooler,the leaves were changing different colors.

Shades of a combination of yellow,orange and brown,just beautiful.

Sunnie was doing well in school,she always seems to adapt pretty well to educational changes.

Sunnie said that her and Fred communicated with e-mails,for about six months. Then they got less and less. He said that he didn’t have the time,to keep updating.. Fred was to busy with his studies.
When the time came for the breaks at holidays,Fred didn’t call,or even come and see Sunnie.
That is when she knew,their relationship was over. Since than,Sunnie has made many new friends. Also having the time of her life,and enjoying taking care of all the animals at work.
Amy and I are still best of friends. Sometimes,Amy and John,and Stan and I go out on the town together. But mostly we take turns,at each others house,and just play cards for fun.

The troublemaker has turn her life around. Mary has remarried,and is expecting twins in about three months. Amy said that Mary has giving up drinking. And regrets all the trouble that she has cause Stan and I. Maybe some day,I’ll be able to forgive her,but not today.

On the way to the hospital,I was a nervous-wreck.I should have left Amy bring me. But she has enough to do.

I thought to myself, ”it’s my fault,I threw Stan out, without thinking. No! That dam Mary,she is the crazy bitch. It’s all her fault for taking advantage of Stan. Just to get even with me.” “She’s a bitch,bitch,bitch!”I cried.

I pulled over to the side of the road,until I straighten myself out.

Mary with her sick mind would probably love for me to get in an accident. Then she really could have Stan to herself.

After I calmed down,I drove the rest of the way to the hospital. When I got their,I took the elevator to the second floor.
I stopped at the nurses station,and asked to see Dr. Vess.

Another nurse walked over to me, she was short with long brown hair,that was pulled back with a barrette.

“Hello!” I’m Sheila,you must be Mrs. Hazes.”

“Yes,I am,how is my husband?”

“He was just brought back from more testing. Stan is a little more alert,since he was brought back to his room. I told him you were on your way. That brought on a smile,and his eyes lite up.”

“Stan and I have been separated for a while.”

“Oooh! Sheila muttered, “you better go in to see him,I’m sure he’s waiting.”

I didn’t really know how to react,as I walked in his room. Their were two beds in the room. An older man was in the first bed sound asleep,lowly snoring with his mouth open. As I slowly walked over to the next bed,that was next to the window. It was Stan,with a big bandage,wrapped around his head. His right leg was in a sling. He had his eyes closed. But as soon as I got closer to his bed,his eyes opened up.

Tears flowed down his face, his voice was all broken-up. Alise he cried,”I’m so sorry,I don’t know,what in earth happened to me.
After I had that bad fall at work,I felt so funny,I was saying things,that I didn’t mean. I treated you and Sunnie awful. You and Sunnie must hate me? Especially,you.. I don’t know why I was running with Mary. I’m so sorry Alise.”

I held his hand,and told him,just get better Stan. We’ll straighten this out later.

Alise and Amy had one of their busy days at work. Before they knew it,it was time to go home.

Amy didn’t tell Alise,that Mary called this morning. She didn’t want to ruin Alise day,she seem to be in a better mood,then yesterday.

On the way home,Amy told me,that she is too tired to cook.

”I’ll probably call and order Chinese. The kids and John will love the change. If you want to, come over around 6:00 and join us. You told me,Sunnie has a dinner date with Fred.”

“I don’t know Amy, maybe I will.”

When I arrived at my house,I went upstairs and took a shower. After I got dressed,I made a cup of ice tea. Went in my backyard,and just chilled for a while.Their was a nice cool breeze blowing. The sky was bluer than blue,and the birds were just singing away,so relaxing.

Just as I was ready to come in the house,the phone rang. I thought, it probably is Amy reminding me about the Chinese food.

I picked-up the phone,and a woman said,”Hello”

“Yes,may I help you?”

“Is this Mrs. Hazes speaking?”

“Yes it is!”

“Hello my name is Sheila,and I’m a nurse at Halway hospital in Bizazz. We have a patient here. His name is Stanley Haze, he gave me his phone number,and he asked me to call his wife.”

“What in the world happen to him?”

“He said he was walking out of the park,and a car came by and hit him. We don’t know who was driving,or what kind of car. Because the person that hit him didn’t stop. Stanley doesn’t remember anything else. He was hit pretty hard,the impact must of been great. He was unconscious when he was brought in,that was several days ago. He didn’t have any I.D. on him. So we didn’t know who he was. Mr. Haze has a fracture skull,and a broken leg. He’s been coming in and out of it. But he’s calling your name. If you come in,maybe he’ll be more alert. He is in room 2055,that is all I can tell you. You can talk to his doctor when you come in,his name is Dr. Vess.”

“Thank you for calling,I’ll be right over.”

“Drive safe,because he is find here,the staff has been taking good care of him.”

“Thanks again,I said. After I hung up,I called Amy,and told her the news.

“Do you want me to go with you,Alise?”

“No thanks,I’ll be find. I’ll call later,I have to tell Sunnie.

Mary drove to Freddie’s after work,to meet Stan. Of course this was there favorite place. Where they both drink and chat, for hours. Then on a few occasions,Stan would come home with her,and spend the week-end. On one of those week-ends,he reminded me he was married,and had a daughter.

“Doesn’t that bother you Mary?” Stan asked

“Why is it bothering you because your drunk?”

Mary didn’t like his different moods. But she said to her self, she’ll have to put up with it for a while.

Mary had it all planned… Her sister Amy was having a birthday party,for both of them. She said, ”This is the time to get even. She had a letter from Stan,letting her no,how he felt about her. Also a rare picture of her and Stan. One of her female friends,took a picture of Stan and her embracing. When they won a couple hundred of dollars on the lottery.
Mary was mad at Sharon,at the time. But she was glad now,that she had that picture. Because,she said, she plans to leave both in an envelope…. so Amy could find it.

Mary said,she had known doubt, that it would get back to Alise.

When Stan finally walked into Freddie’s, Mary said,he had a long face on him. He was cussing up a storm.He walked over to the bar where she was sitting,and sat next to her.

”My wife just threw me out! Some how she found out about us! All of my personal things are in my truck.”

Mary told him to have a drink,he’ll feel better.

Stan answered, “Your not listening to me Mary,I don’t have any place to stay. I sure as hell am not going to live out of my truck.

Maybe I can move in with you?”he asked.

“Like hell,Stan! I’m not going down that road again. I’ve been their and done that!”

“Your just being a bitch Mary. I’m allow to spend the week-end with you,when you want to go to bed with me. Your like all the other bitches…. Screw You!!

Stan than moves way down to the end of the bar,and orders another drink.

He yells out loud,”I’ll might as well get drunk tonight! Mary the bitch,won’t let me go home with her. So I’ll stay here and get drunk. I don’t have any place to go.”

The bartender Jab,ask Mary,what his problem was tonight.

Mary answered, ”His wife threw him out,and he thinks he moving in with me.”

Okay !!! muttered Jab

Mary told Jab,that she was getting outta here,and going home.

“Be careful Mary.” yelled Jab, as Mary slammed the front door behind her.

Later that day,Sunnie came in from school.She went up to her room and finished her homework. Afterward,she got changed and went to the s.p.c.a. to help feed the animals. She thought out loud,while she was walking to the shelter. ”I better keep my mind busy,this is so surreal,about what’s going on in this family. I hope mom and dad, will make up. If dad comes to his senses,and mom forgives him.”

That day at work,was hard for Alise. She was ostensibly,to all her customer’s. But Alise held her head up high. She wasn’t gone to let Stan get the best of her.

I can’t blame Amy,she sighed,it’s her stupid sister’s doing. How can she hold a grudge on something that happened long ago? She thought,especially something stupid as an prom date.

After work,Amy and I walked home. I didn’t say too much to Amy at first.But Amy kept telling her,that, “she was sorry this happen. Also,she was sorrier,because it started, with her crazy sister.”

Amy I said,”My problem is out the door. I just don’t know how to tell Sunnie,I threw her father out.”

“Sunnie knows what is going on with her father. She is very intelligent,and old enough to understand.”

“I hope so!” I sure don’t want her to blame herself,for what happened.”

“She’ll understand, Alise.”

We both arrived near our house,and I told Amy,”That I would see her tomorrow at work.”
“If you need me,call,or just come over. I’ve got to bring this pass John tonight.”
When I unlocked my front door,and walked into the foyer.

I just cried my eyes out,immediately after I shut the door.

When I came to my senses ——— I thought, ”I better get myself together, it’s almost 6:30 p.m. Sunnie was due home soon.”

The next day after Amy got her kids off to school. She walked over to my house to straighten things out. Before she arrived at my front door,she seen in front of her,Stan,putting his personal belonging,in his green pick-up.She said,he looked like he was taking enough, to stay for a while. I don’t think he seen me,so I stayed back,and waited for him to pull away.

Amy then knocked on the door,and she heard someone crying. She tried the door,and it was unlocked. Amy walked into my house,and seen me crying at the kitchen table.

“What’s the matter Alise? she said

“You dam right know what’s wrong! Sunnie came home and told me what she seen. She told me it was you and Stan,in a picture. With a love letter in an envelope.

When Stan came in from his all,out night again. I confronted him,about you and Stan.

He admitted it.

But he said, ”it’s not you,it’s Mary”.

I almost fell off my seat.

“Further more so what?” I’ll do what I want!” Stan yelled

“I cried out!” “Yes you can do what you want,after you leave with all your things.Now get the hell out of this house,and don’t come back.”

After he packed all his things,he said,”you’ll never make it on your own.”

“With tears,still in my eyes,” I yelled, “Just leave,and get the hell out of this house! Don’t even think of coming back!”

“What on earth are you going to do now,Alise?” Amy whispered

“I don’t know I muttered,but let’s get to work. I would like to stay home today, but I can’t.”

“You’ll probably feel better,being with other people.

I know I would,feel better.” Amy sighed

“Let’s go Amy!”

Amy called Mary later that night,but as usual,she wasn’t home. Well, on the other hand,maybe she was,but didn’t want to talk to her. I have to keep trying,thought Amy. Because,I know Sunnie must have looked in the envelope. Anybody would have been curious. I just hope Sunnie doesn’t think it was me. I’m sure, Alise,told her, that I had a twin by now.
About an hour later Amy said,she called Mary again. This time, Mary answered,”Hello Sis!” “What did I do this time?”

“I called you tonight,because Sunnie found your letter and picture. That you dropped,when you were here last. I hid it,I thought, but while Sunnie was babysitting tonight. She said,she heard something break,while she was going upstairs to the bathroom. Any way,she had to see the envelope,where I hid it. Because what broke,was the picture,where the envelope was taped behind.”

“So what do you think,I’m suppose to do?” yawned Mary

“I thought you would have picked it up by now,than this wouldn’t of happened.”

“Bull Shit Amy!” “If you wanted to,you could have threw it in the trash!”

“That’s right!” I’ve should of, but I didn’t.”

“Just throw it out,and don’t bother me with this shit!”

“Don’t bother you with this shit!” I just hope,when Alise finds out,she doesn’t think it’s me.”
“Mary laughed,don’t worry, she’s your best friend,deal with it!”

Amy slammed the phone down,and thought,”I’ve got to straighten this out myself.”

I’ve just got to tell Alise myself. I”m really embarrass,I shouldn’t have to tell her,Mary is the real bitch,thought Amy.

I’m ashamed to call Mary my sister,sisters don’t do these things to each other.
