JustinPOV: Jasmine was getting sleepy.
Justin: Want me to drive you home?
Jasmine: You always do.
Justin: Its my job.
Jasmine rolled her eyes and smiled.
I grabbed onto her back and pulled her up.
Jasmine: Wait, what about Jamie?
Justin: No worries.
I turned around and called Jamie.
Jamie ran out of her room.
Jamie: Yes daddy?
Justin: You want to join me to go to Jasmine's house?
Jamie smiled big.
Jasmine giggled and carried Jamie.
Jasmine: Aw sweety.
I wrapped my arms around her and smiled.
For some reason, I felt like we were a real family now. And the feeling was great.
Justin: Lets go.
The three of us walked to my car.
I drove us to Jasmine's.
Justin: Bye babe. See you tomorrow.
I leaned over and kissed her forehead.
Jasmine: -smiles- See you too.
Jamie: What about me?
Jasmine: I will miss you too Jamie. Want to make muffins again tomorrow?
I smiled at the two of them and watched Jasmine leave after saying goodbye. Then, I drove back home.
Jamie: Is Jasmine my mommy?
Justin: Jamie, you asked that already.
Jamie: But daddy I feel like shes my mommy!
Justin: She's not your mommy Jamie.
Jamie sighed and looked down.
Jamie: But daddy when will I have a mommy? Everyone is school is teasing me saying i have no mommy and I feel so jealous when they walk home from school. They have their mommies beside them.
I turned to Jamie. It felt so bad knowing your own child is getting teased because she was raised by a single parent. I just didn't know what to think.
When we reached home, it was raining. I opened the door for Jamie and carried her. I carefully roofed my jacket on her head and walked to our apartment.
I put her down and she raced to her room.
I sighed and plopped on the sofa.
When am I going to solve this?
Am I not good enough?
Then, I started feeling something.
I sat up.
It was Jasmine's phone.
I grabbed it and realised she had been texting Bernadette.
Jasmine: Mom are u hiding something from me?
Bernadette: Jasmine Im not. Im your mother and you should trust me.
Then, I had an idea.
I pressed 'Mom' on Jasmine's phone and it automatically went to calling.
I put the phone against my ear.. waiting.
Bernadette: -picks up- Jasmine?
Justin: Its Justin.
Bernadette: Justin?! Why do you have Jasmine's phone?
Justin: She left it at my house.
Justin: Can we PLEASE continue our conversation now?
