Hi, I am Aina, now. But that is not my real name. And the reason why I am in hiding was all my doing, just because I wanted to go viral. Let me start from the beginning.
My mom was a perfect suburban wife. Raising me and my three-year-old brother, cooking and cleaning. My father was a perfect match. Dressing boring and working late. I didn't know exactly what my father's work was. At school presentations and to my friends, he was introduced by "a generic government employee." I asked mom a few times, was he a criminal? But she always answered: "I can neither confirm nor deny it." I understood that she was messing with me, but I had genuine doubts.
One time, when my mom was away to visit grandma, I got sick and couldn't go to school. So my dad had to stay with me. I didn't hear a doorbell, but someone was at the back door talking to him. I sneaked out of my room to get a glass of water. I know it's not nice to eavesdrop, but I couldn't help myself and overheard a man addressing my father by some other name. From that day, I felt like my father was a stranger that had just mesmerized my mom.
When I was sixteen, he got promoted. Into what, I also didn't know. But we got to move to a fancy new house.
It was sad leaving my neighborhood, ‘cause all my friends were there as well as my uncle Greg. He wasn't a real uncle, but he was a close family friend and he owned a corner shop where my friends and I hung out a lot. He also visited us often to help out my mom when my brother was born. Also, he helped me a lot with my homework.
But here we were—moving up in the community and planning a vacation abroad. Which we hadn't had since I was a kid.
We went to Morocco, where my father's father was born. I was expecting to be sipping cocktails on the nice beaches, but for the first part of the vacation, we went visiting some relatives in small, dusty towns.
So my father and I got into a fight about me spending time chatting with my friends on TikTok instead of spending time with my parents and people I’d never seen in my life. I wasn't gonna take being scolded in front of strangers lying down (even though I doubt they understood a word I was saying), so I screamed at the top of my lungs:
“You spent little to no time with me while I was growing up, so what do you expect? For all I know, uncle Greg was a better father than you.”
And stormed off outside to continue chatting on the phone.
