Telling the Truth -- Early Summer 1996

Post  Dean Black on Sat Jul 06, 2013 4:44 am

I had told Addie to let me talk to my mum and dad by myself.  I mean, they had me out of wedlock, right?  so how angry could they be? I did kind of hope to tell them one at a time so i didn't have to deal with both of them attacking me at once.  "Mum?  Dad?  Either of you home?" I asked.

"Yeah, honey, I'm in here," I said, calling from the living room. I was reading a book since I happened to have some time on my hands, thankfully. "You've been gone even longer than you were on vacation it seems! I've barely seen you," I told him with a smile.

I hugged Mum and replied, "Sorry... but that's a good way to lead into why I was never home... Well, it's Addie," I continued, running a hand through my hair. "She's OK!" I added quickly seeing my Mum's look of concern. Well, hell, I wasn't too sure if she was OK or not... we never really asked each other that question... just whether or not we wanted to do something about it or keep it.

I had stood up quickly when Dean had said something about Addison, but now I feared what he was going to tell me was going to make me sit down. "Dean... what's going on?" I questioned.

I sighed, not sure where to start. So I may as well start at teh end. "Mum... I know the way you and Dad had me... but that's fine. So yeah... but Addie and I are gonna be parents. I'll see you later," I said, turning to just start running. I was sure that Addie and I were gonna have to move out and run away anyways with how little her dad actually liked me.

"Whoa, whoa, whoa, slow down," I said, jumping up and grabbing my son. I had to just catch my breath for a moment. "When did you find out?" I asked him.

Okay... my mum was being a little bit too calm about this. "She wasn't positive until a little while ago. We think she's about two months along," I said, calming down myself about all of this.

I grinned at him. "Oh Dean!" I said, hugging him. "Who all knows?" I asked him, thinking that we needed to let Remus and Chloe know along with, obviously, Sirius.

"Mum... calm down," I said, chuckling a little bit. "We're just telling the parents right now... she won't show that much until probably 4 months, so we are trying to keep it on a 'need to know' basis. So please, don't tell anyone," I pleaded. I knew how my mum was... she enjoyed telling exciting news. "Where is dad, anyways? I suppose I do need to tell him....."

I nodded. I knew I should do what my son asked... but I guess I could just help him tell his father. "He should be around here somewhere... Sirius?" I called out. We split up to try to find him... the house wasn't that big, so it wouldn't be too difficult.

I was in the study reading, hearing my name to lazy to stand up. " I am in the study! " I said loudly.

I walked into the study and I just sort of hesitated. Gee, now what was I going to say? Not that he really had any say in the matter since he didn't raise me or anything. But still... our relationship was getting better, slowly but it was getting there. I knew I had to stop giving him such a hard time... but I couldn't help it. I didn't know how Harry was able to just... up and like him. But then again, they were only Godfather/uncle to Godson/nephew... Sirius wasn't his father. "Er, yea. Well I'm -- I mean, Addie is -- pregnant. So yea. Mum is coming so I'm sure she can fill you in," I said from the doorway, hoping if necessary I can get a quick escape.
