Shortly after Destiny left the house, I found Dad downstairs and gave him a huge hug.
“I’m sorry, I’m so sorry…” I whispered, breaking down all over again.
“Oh, Pip… what are you apologising to me for?”
“I let you down by speaking to him… I’m sorry….”
Dad held me even tighter.
“Never apologise to me for that, you silly goose. It was well within your right for you to do that, and besides, why would I let him in the house if I didn’t want you two to at least try and sort your differences?”
