There are two women in my life, my stepmother and my girlfriend. There’s been a tension between the two, and they haven’t even met yet. They both think that the other occupies too much of my time. To be fair to Jill, she’s probably right. I told you before that my stepmom needs me, I’ve been taking care of her ever since she left dad. She can “act out” just as a young girl would when I don’t give her enough attention. My stepmother has a tendency to get into trouble, she is an attractive woman, a vulnerable woman, and the two are not a good mix. She needs me to protect her.
