Lies, Lies, Lies…What is Really Going on, Clarence Richard
Sharon wants everyone to think that Jake is unfit to be Michele’s father. Shecalls him a drug dealer. But those days are over for Jake.She sais he’s a drug using rock star and that life is not what she wants for Michele.Jake knew that no matter what he did, it wouldn’t be good enough. He alsoknew that even if he was to quit using altogether, Michele would probablybecome a user of sorts as well, because of the way Sharon uses people. Itwould be better if she knew that he had been there and done that, so hewould have knowledge on the subject and maybe she would respect thatenough to keep her off of it.“I’ll keep her out of that mix.” Pleaded Jake as they argued back and forthwith each other from day to day. Jake was always trying to gain Sharonconfidence and trust that he would be able to handle bringing Michele up ina good environment.“I promise, I won’t let Michele be influenced by drugs." “I don’t want her todo Drugs either.” Jake said as he was being scrupulously interrogated.Sharon’s house became a very gloomy place for Jake and it took a lot to bethere because after a while it turned into a wrestling match every time hewent to visit Michele.Every night that he left the house, he wrote in the diary how he felt so thatMichele would know what he went through to be with her, if she ever wantedto know but today Jake made another sacrifice.It might not have been a smart thing to do but Michele was getting to be four and a half years old now and he thought that she might be able toremember if he told her just once more that he was her father.On this visit, he would do it. He would wait until the right time and just tellher, then see what she would say.
