Episode 636: Astounded

"You are unbelievable!" Justine glared at their father.

It should have been a happy time for Adria; sheíd finally gained her dadís support. She felt more tears coming on, however, when her sister dropped her hand and strode to the door. Addie rushed after Justine. "Please, donít be mad at me. Donít make me choose. You donít want to be like him, do you?"

"Itís okay, Addie. Iím not mad at you. Iím mad at him for being such a hypocrite. Why is it okay for you to live your life the way that makes you happy, but thatís not okay for me?"

"I donít know. Iím sorry," Adria said.

Justine nodded. "Weíll talk soon." She kissed Addieís temple. "Watch out for strings. There are bound to be some with him." ,P>Their father scoffed as Justine exited with her family in tow. "Your sister has sour grapes over the choices sheís made."

"Maybe because thereís nothing wrong with the choices sheís made," Addie blurted, knowing she was likely jeopardizing her newfound acceptance from her father. "Justine married a good man, and she has a beautiful little girl."

"She could have had a great deal more."


"Ad, Iím on Justineís side, too, but right now youíre my main concern," her husband said. He wrapped an arm around her and eyed her dad. "Why the sudden change of heart?"

"Contrary to popular opinion, I am not an unreasonable man. I am aware of how hard Adria has struggled for over a year now to live up to my expectations. It was a valiant effort, but it became apparent yesterday, when Adria stopped by my office that sheís not happy. I want you to be happy, Adria. Thatís all Iíve ever wanted."

"Why do I find that hard to believe?" Ryley asked.
