The Obtainable Companion

I'm not sure what happened. Something snapped or something. Something clicked into place...

My father's here with us. He just showed up yesterday.

He said he was sorry for everything. That he didn't want to hurt us anymore.

That he just wanted to make sure I was okay and that he wanted to be here for me.

I'm so happy. Its hard to describe it.

Eating waffle with my father and Dy. Talking about how stupid deer are in the Spring. How we miss the mountains and the fresh air.

Its wonderful. So wonderful.

I know that this is going to be hard. Occationally he seems to slip back into the state he was before.

I always knew if he did come back that it wouldn't just magically be fast or easy.

It takes time to heal. I takes time to forget. It comes in pieces and sometimes those pieces aren't what you need.

Sometimes you slip but that doesn't mean you won't pick yourself up.

You will. You always do. You pick yourself up and you move along and eventually you come out of the darkness.

Eventually everything's okay. Not the same, but okay.

I'm just happy to have my dad back. :3

Stay safe everyone.


  1. Hylo. Be careful. I've seen this kind of thing before, and it never ended well for me.

    Maybe it will go well for you. But I'd keep a baseball bat handy just in case. It's never that easy. :(

  2. I'm really happy for you, but be careful.

  3. Yeah. I'm keeping a good eye on him. Dy is too. Just in case this is all a farce or if he slips back into what he was before.
