There are so many things on my mind! ” Stephanie stood up from the rusty old chair while she cleaned the spilled milk on the table. “Yeah, I know. Today was just… awful! I can’t believe this happened! ” She sighed. “I had to leave work and all my students were so happy. Ironic, huh? How somebody’s happiness can be based on somebody else’s pain. ” he said, trying to block all the memories of the day. “I know it’s not easy Gabriel!
I was there remember? I was leaving Mary at school, when I got that dreaded call. ” “And I also can’t believe you took her with you to the police station! ” Gabriel said, accusingly. “What was I supposed to do? ” she answered defensively. “I didn’t plan for this; I had nowhere to leave her! ” Stephanie began to approach her husband, who was lost in his thoughts. “Poor kid, must be suffering as much as us. ” He looked straight into Stephanie’s eyes and whispered, “I don’t know how to explain to her what happened, I don’t know what to say. ” “She heard and saw enough today. Stephanie said while resting her head on his shoulder, “I think she’s so strong and mature for her age. ” “I wish I could say the same for her brother. Do you think he’s right? Could he be telling us the truth for once? ”Gabriel murmured, somewhat ashamed, bowing his head.
“You heard what the police said! ” she responded angrily. “Evidence is clear and we cannot fix this! ” Stephanie reached her hand out towards Gabriel’s shoulder. Gabriel took her hand and placed it in his. “This is like a never ending nightmare. How are we going to face this? You know how people are gonna …” The middle aged man’s face dropped to their joined hands. Hey! ” Stephanie cried, “our family is more important than people! Don’t turn this about you. ” “What are you talking about? Of course it’s about me! It’s also about you! It’s our family for crying out loud! ” Gabriel wiped the tears from her delicate torn face. “Yes, our family. Our family…” Stephanie pulled away from Gabriel, staring at the pictures of her parents. “How am I ever, going to tell my mother? You know this will break her heart. ”

“I think this’ll be the hardest thing of all for both of us. Well, besides visiting our son only once a week. Ha! ” Gabriel grimaced. I don’t want to see my son like that Gabriel. What parent does? ” Stephanie asked, now pacing back and forth. “The kind that don’t have another choice. ” He looked up and said. “The kind that loves the boy they raised to do good, but got sidetracked on the way. The kind who’ll support the kid who’s now grown and made mistakes, but still keep calling him a boy when he’s twenty five years old. ” After a few seconds of thinking about what was said, Stephanie asked; “Are we bad parents, Gabe? ” She now had a serious look on her eyes. “What have we done so wrong, that our child is now considered… a criminal? “We’re doing our best, love. We don’t have to question our parenting! We need to ask God for his purpose in all of this. Maybe Eliud has to go through this to learn his lesson. ” Gabriel said, while holding Stephanie’s hands. “
I can’t believe you’re talking about God at a time like this. ” She dropped her hands from his in a swivel movement and said; “Our son has been guided through the right path. He has been educated with all the right tools, love, support and even material things have never ceased. Now would be a pretty nice time for Him to show up, don’t you think? “We are talking about the God who parted the Red Sea, the God that sent his only son so we could have life in abundance. The same God that gave us Eliud and Mary, when the doctors said otherwise,” Gabriel emphasized, holding her close; “He will make a way Stephanie. ” “Okay, I know He will. It’s so hard not to doubt when all you see is the dark tunnel with no way out. Our son Gabe, a thief, a junkie…” Stephanie now, drenched of emotion, cried on Gabriel’s chest. “In the mean time… I love you, and we will get through this, with His help. ” They both sobbed, while a bright light came through the kitchen window.
