My parents met when they were in high school. My dad, Johnson Blum, was an outcast because he was pretty eccentric and inside his own head a lot of the time... And he was purple, obviously. My mum, Nikki Ursine, was a wannabe popular kid, and loved getting her own way. That made my dad perfect for her, as he was easygoing enough to just go along with whatever she wanted.
Once they'd graduated high school, they moved out right away and had my brother, Jordan. My mum insisted he take her surname, and of course, my dad never objected. Not too much later, they had me too.
I don't remember much about my dad, I don't recall him ever being around. My parents bedroom had a balcony off it and his workbench was out there, he was always inventing silly contraptions. My mum would spend a lot of quality time with me and my brother, and write books when she had spare time.
"Nazari, you know what happened last time we spent a night together. We've already discussed that what you did to me was wrong, and there's still all chance that she's not even mine. I have to go, sorry." There was an awkward pause. "Keep me updated, yeah?" He muttered as he legged it out the door.
"I've had enough of you being totally disobedient, it was hard enough dealing with Jordan and Corrina, and then Corrina moving in, and Marlon coming. It's a two-damn-bedroom house, Nazari, where do you expect you and Geneva to go?"
"I dunno Ma, we don't take up much ro-"
"No, the amount of room a second teenage mother and a baby take up isn't the issue. You're the issue. I'm sorry to have to do this, but I've come to the end of my tether. I want you out, Nazari. You've been nothing but trouble for years and I'm getting too old to deal with it. You can stay a few months while you look for a place, you've been saving your wages from your job at the spa, haven't you? Sorry, but you need to grow up and the only way you'll do that is to live alone." And with that she stormed up the stairs and slammed the door.
A feeling of fear and dread kinda grounded me from my newborn baby high... I slept on the sofa for a couple weeks, before enough was enough and I withdrew all my money, packed all mine and Geneva's things and got on the next bus to Starlight Shores, leaving crappy dead-end Sunset Valley behind.
