Most of my friends call me “Daddy’s girl”. The bond between me and my Dad is very tight.  Growing up, I hated my mum.  I actually still do. While Daddy took care of me and my sister, she always shouted at us telling us to work in the kitchen, clean the house, stay away from boys and the likes.

People told me that she did it out of love. I didn’t believe it. In my heart, I felt she is not my mother. Well, something happened last month that significantly affected my view of things.

One evening, I went home without informing anyone. What I saw surprised me. I saw my mum kissing one of the people I used to see as a big uncle. I was really sad and I left the house crying. Later that night when I got home, my mum came to my room and begged me not to tell my Dad. She siad it was not what I thought. She asked me if I want my parents to divorce. That question disturbed me.

Since then, my mum’s mood has changed at home. She is now caring and nice. My own mood has gotten bad. My dad noticed and has been questioning me. I don’t know what to do. On one hand, I love my dad and I want to tell him the truth.  On the other hand, my mother’s question about whether I want my parents to divorce keeps coming to me.

Help me. I’m in a fix. What should I do?
