“What do you mean, no?”
“Exactly what I said. Your mother cannot move in here.”
“She’s having your child. Don’t you care?”
“No, Shelby, I don’t.”
She couldn’t believe he was acting like this.
“I don’t know what happened between you and Mom, but I have never seen you be this cruel to anyone before. You are evicting a pregnant woman from her home and not leaving her with anywhere to go except back to the streets.”
“Your mother is not going out on the street. She has a place to go. You need to go talk to her instead of yelling at me.”
Andy was helping Nakusa with her project when Shelby came in from the garage. He watched her go into his office. He got up and followed her.
“Why didn’t you tell me?”
“Would you have believed me if I had?”
She shook her head. “Probably not.”
“It was something you needed to hear from her.”
He could see that she was upset and had been crying. He put his arms around her letting her cry.
“What is going to happen to the baby?”
“If the baby is mine, I will raise it. If not, I don’t know.”
Shelby looked up at her dad. “Daddy, that is my little brother or sister no matter who the father is. We can’t let the baby go into the system.”
“That’s a lot to ask, Shelby.”
“Just think about it. Please?”
“I will think about it.”
