I'm sorry it's been so long. The reason I haven't been so active was because my parent's were going on a nasty divorce,
and it has not been easy for us.

I didn't say anything about this earlier because I didn't want any antagonizing towards my parents. And I still don't.
Mom and Dad have been at war with eachother for maybe 2 to five years, and out of spite, he took away our TV screens, our cable box, even all our computers, so throughout this time, my brothers and I were forced to share one single laptop, while I wished everyday to get back my own.

But here's where it started.

Turns out my dad's a homosexual and has been cheating on our mom for years. And when the truth came out, he became a real jerk towards us, his own family.
It's been a whole year today that he took away my laptop,
and since then he's been trying everything to drive Mom out of the house. Holding back rent, Leaving a mess in the kitchen and our den for us to clean up, listening to his music at high volume in the middle of the night!
Not to mention bullying me just to upset her!
He told me many times that if I really want my laptop back, I'd have to work for it first. So I wrote down a listed of chores I was willing to do and did them. But deep down I knew he had no intentions of buying me back my laptop.

He'll lie to anyone he meets, including his male mistress's about Mom being all bitchy and sassy and whatnot, calling her the bad guy! Earlier he didn't even mention to them about having a wife and daughter, he referred to us as just the 2 women he lived with.
He even claimed that he was already divorced. Oh how I pity them.
My Mom has been in the hospital more than four times last year for high blood pressure.

He's treated my brothers no better, Ashan's scared of him, because he wanted custody of him, also because they were never close.
But he acted all goody goody to Jeshamon just to get him on his side, but as soon as he learned the whole truth, he was so crushed he spends less time at home now.

He had been lying to us all our lives, since the very beginning, in fact that's how he got Mom to marry him in the first place.
Everything I knew about my father was a lie.

Now I know after reading this will make it difficult for you not to antagonize him, but seriously don't. Its just too personal.
I just wanted to get it out there, to let you know why Birdsnatched has been on hiatus.
I really do want to go back on that comic series, yet I'm still waiting to buy my own computer until then.

But here's the thing, Since my Dad moved out of the house nearly 3 weeks ago, we couldn't be happier, especially since he's no longer welcome in our home until the divorce is finalized.
But in the meantime, we are adjusting quite nicely.

Personal Quote: An owner knows when their pet wants to get off, but the pet has to learn when their owner can let them go.

If you are to write a story, do not submit it unless you're willing to give it an ending. No matter what the story, they all deserve an ending.

It's easier to tell a person's age when they were born at the beginning of a decade.

Dreams are like children of which we give birth to every night. So failing to sleep, is the same as failing to conceive.

Once you stray into someone else's fantasy world, it becomes part of yours.
