MommysGirl – Alexis Fawx Still Desirable
Alexis Fawx Still Desirable
Alexis Fawx sits on the edge of the bed, cradling her face in her hands. She’s obviously upset about something. Just then, Jane Wilde, her stepdaughter, walks down the hall, passes her mom’s room and seeing her upset, stops and enters the room tentatively. Mom, what’s wrong?, Jane asks delicately as she moves around the bed and sits beside her mother. Alexis looks up quickly and composes herself hastily. Oh nothing honey, just allergies, Alexis lies, managing a strained smile for her daughter. Jane sees right through her mom’s lie. Come on, she may only be her stepdaughter, but she can tell when her mom is upset about something, what is it?, Jane prompts Alexis patiently. Alexis takes a deep breath. It’s just that-, Alexis starts and stops. No, she shouldn’t tell Jane, not only is it inappropriate, but it is incredibly embarrassing, Alexis says. Again, Jane encourages her mom to share what’s on her mind, and Alexis finally gives in. It’s Jane’s father, he…he cheated on her, Alexis says with a great deal of difficulty. Jane looks furious at that news. That asshole!, she exclaims. How could he do something like that?!, Jane continues, incensed. Alexis Fawx Still Desirable shakes her head in response, dazed. She doesn’t know the answer to that, she just knows that she found some texts on his phone and that’s how she discovered the affair, Alexis says sadly. Oh my god…did Alexis confront him?, Jane asks. No not yet, she doesn’t even know what to say to him yet, Alexis says. Jane rubs her mom’s shoulder sympathetically, telling her that she’s so sorry that this happened. Alexis thanks her for the support. But she doesn’t want Jane to look at her father any differently, that’s why she hesitated to tell her, he is still the girl’s father, and no matter what he did, he still loves Jane, Alexis says. Jane knows that he loves her, Jane says. But even though she’s related to her dad and not to Alexis, Jane still thinks that what her dad did is unforgivable, Jane adds. There is a long moment of silence after this.
