Hoping Destiny Is Right

"Shawna, you know your mother loves you. She would never hurt you. She said she was sorry about the computer monitor; it was an accident. But she was very upset about the emails," Jon said.

Shawna heard the doorbell ring in the entry. Her heartbeat quickened at what was about to happen. She hoped it worked the way Destiny said it would. "But Mom treats me like a child, Daddy," Shawna said, hoping to coax her eyes full of tears again. "Whether she broke my computer on purpose or not, I don't really know. But she came into my room and took it without my permission, and that's not right. All I want is a life of my own."
