Isaac opened the door to a monster. His mouth went instantly dry, and he went to swing the door shut again. But, his father stuck his foot between it and the frame and wrapped a hand around the edge of the door.
“You can’t be here,” Isaac said, taking another step back. He had to get him to leave. He didn’t know exactly why he was here, but Isaac knew it couldn’t be anything good.
The laugh his father let out sounded almost demonic. “Did you really think a piece of paper would keep me from getting what I’m owed?”
“I don’t owe you a damn thing,” Isaac said. “All you’ve ever given me was pain. And you can’t be here.”
But, his father pushed the door in, sending Isaac a step back. “Who is it, Isaac?” Jonas called from the living room. He needed to get his father out of here before Jonas came to investigate. The two of them coming face to face would only make things worse. Jonas would think he had to protect Isaac, and Isaac didn’t even want to think about what his father would do to Jonas when he stepped between the two of them.
No. He couldn’t let any of that happen. He just had to get his father out of here.
This week’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt was to use “mon” either as part of a word or on its own. I’m getting right up to this point in the writing of Jonas & Isaac’s story. If you couldn’t tell, Isaac’s father is not a nice person. And this is definitely leading up to some trouble.
