Goodbye Daddy By Dianne Herring Lucy screamed bloody murder, for Larry to stop the car, and let her see her Daddy, as he drove on past her daddy’s Texaco service station. She did get a glimpse of her daddy, as they rode by. Never in her wildest dreams, did Lucy think it could be the last time she would see her daddy. You Son of a bitch, Lucy thought. Lucy’s daddy was working hard, as usual. He always walked sort of like a slight limp, as if his shoes were hurting his feet. And, as a matter of fact, this was one reason he walked that way. Lucy’s Mama was always fussing at him, to go and buy himself some new shoes. But he never listened to much of anything she had to say. Lucy tried to control her sobbing, as she thought she had cried enough for one day. Her eyes were swollen so bad she could hardly see. Of course Larry wasn’t paying any attention to Lucy, so she leaned her head back, and thought about her plan, with the sound of the old black and white clunker of Larry’s, in the background. Her plan was to get herself out of this mess she was in. This mess with Larry was driving her to distraction. Some days she thought she was going insane. As Lucy leaned her head back, softly on the seat, she thought about the last few months of her life......., It had not been but a few months since Lucy walked down the isle of the church to meet her high school sweetheart, Larry, waiting for her at the front of the church. Lucy was so proud of herself, knowing she was envied by many girls, who would have loved to be in her shoes. Her parents had begged her not to do this, but Lucy had her mind made up, and there was no changing it. This was back in the 60’s, and it meant something to walk down that isle of the church, wearing a long white wedding gown. These days, Lucy wondered just what in the hell it did mean. After all, Larry didn’t love her. He didn’t know how to love anyone, and he had other things on his mind. Lucy wondered if what she felt for Larry was actually love, or infatuation., or something she didn’t know the correct word for an explanation of how she did feel about him. Lucy was very popular in high school. She had many academic scholarships, and she was in the Beta Club. She was a Girl Scout, which she was really proud to be a part of. Lucy was voted, ‘ Most Friendly ‘, her senior year. She loved being head cheerleader that year too, even though she didn’t know a damn thing about football. But, back in those days, this was every girl’s dream come true ! She was proud of herself for her accomplishments. And, of course, her parents were also. Lucy’s Mama made her the most beautiful dress for the Beauty Pageant, in high school. She was chosen to be in the ‘ Top Ten ‘, but, she knew it was because of her dress. It was made of golden brocade material, and it had a panel down the back with soft golden velvet roses on it, as it slightly dragged the floor. Larry graduated from high school two years before Lucy. She really missed seeing him at school. He was one of the most popular guys in school. He was tall blonde and handsome. He always played a guitar. Larry was the main member of the band he had put together. Back then, there was just something about a guy who played a guitar ! All of the girls just flocked to Larry, as he truly had charisma, to go along with his handsomeness. There were times when Lucy didn’t exactly trust him. She had seen him flirting, but he didn’t see her watching. Even though Lucy’s parents didn’t approve of her dating Larry, she continued to do so. She met her girlfriends and they took her to meet him down the road. They rode around in Larry’s supped up car, and it was the fastest one in town. Lucy actually rode with him when he went drag racing, even though she was scared out of her mind. Of course, she didn’t let him know how scared she was, she had to be tough, or there would be someone else sitting beside him. Most of the time, when they were riding around, they ended up parking in Click here to read the rest of this story (222 more lines)
