2.9 Faith: Mommy Dearest
It was the next day, early in the morning and Jessica was already awake on her way to the studio. Kash had sent a limousine to pick her up. She on her way out the door when her cellphone rang. “Hi Jennifer.” She said as she answered the phone. “Hey mom just boarded her plane and she’ll be here in two hours.” Jennifer said. “Okay.” Jessica replied annoyed. “She wants to have lunch with you.” Jennifer said. “What for Jennifer?” Jessica asked. “We don’t get along she doesn’t care about me so why does she want to see me now?” She questioned. “She misses you Jessica.” Jennifer replied. “She doesn’t miss me, what did you tell her I have a rich boyfriend? Does she want money or something?” Jessica argued. “Look I have to go, I have a studio session I’ll call you later.” She said. “What about lunch?” Jennifer asked. “I’ll let you know.” Jessica said as she hung up the phone. I don’t need this I have to be in my right mind when I get to the studio, she thought. Jessica checked to make sure she had everything then she went downstairs to wait for the limo driver.
Jessica didn’t want to be bothered by her mother. She wasn’t ready to forgive her yet. Everything was going so well in her life right now. Her mother only wanted to come and complicate things for her. Jessica could remember when she left home and her mother didn’t even tell her goodbye. She could remember how badly her mother had treated her and how she never stood up for her. She wasn’t just mean, she was cruel and now she wanted to come and hangout like nothing happened. The limo pulled up and Kash got out the backseat. “Are you going with me to the studio?” Jessica asked. “Yes I have been given the task of managing you.” He said as he ushered her into the car. “My sister called me this morning and she and my mom want to have lunch today.” Jessica said once they were in the car. “Oh really? You should go.” He told her. “I don’t know if I’m ready to be alone with her and my sister just yet, you remember what happened at dinner with Jennifer and her fiancé last night.” She said. “I can go with you if you want.” Kash stated. “Are you sure you want to do that?” she asked. “My mom is twice as bad as Jennifer.” She added. “I can handle her.” He replied with a smile. “Thank you.” Jessica said as she leaned in and kissed Kash.
Jessica began to think that maybe she could get through a lunch with her mom and sister. What could they do or say that they haven’t already? She thought. “Listen to these tracks and figure out which one you like.” Kash said as he plugged in his Mp3 player. “I’m not going to write my own songs?” she asked. “You will be able to write your owns song but the label wants you to do some songs by well known producers and songwriters as well.” Kash answered. “But you will be able to write all your own lyrics.” He added. Kash pressed play and music began to fill the limo as he started to nod his head. “I like this one.” She said with a smile.
