Chapter 49: Betrayal
(by NativeRose, added on 20 September 2004 06:42 PM)

Scott raced home after school that day after school. Something had been bothering him, but he just couldn't figure out what it was. He pondered the idea, and it finally became clear to him. His father had been acting weird lately, and he wasn't sure why. His dad was really distant; he decided he needed to ask him about it.
"Yes, Scott?"
"I need to talk to you about something."
"What's that?"
"You are acting really strange, like you don't really care, and that makes me feel sad." Kyle Smith was faced with the inevitable. He had known he had to tell his son what was to transpire with Social Services, but he wasn't sure how to go about it. What could he say? He didn't realize how it had affected Scott, but obviously he noticed that something just wasn't right.
"Scott, there is, um, something I need to tell you."
"Yeah?' Scott's face turned pale, he knew this something was bad news.
"You said you feel sad because of my unusual actions. I'm sorry you had to go through that. There will be some changes soon." This didn't sound good at all, and Scott wasn't sure he wanted to know what it was.
"You're going to live with a new family very soon. I...I can't handle everything that is going on, and I don't think I can support you in every capacity."
"You're...what? No! You're leaving me, just like my Mommy did!" Scott turned, flung the door open, and raced down the sidewalk. Why didn't his father want him anymore? Was it all because his mommy was gone? He just couldn't understand this, and he was scared. Where would he go? Would the new family love him?
