Someone pleasant. Happy, and new. He’s unexpected. He’s glad to see you. He welcomes you with open arms. He’s your dad. Not the one you were born to. Well, he is. But he’s changed. He’s the person you remember he used to be, not the monster he became. This time, you are happy to see him. Glad to hear from him. He looks good and tells you that you do too. It’s been way too long, he says. And it’s true. Ten years? More? Less? Too many by any standard, for sure. But it’s as if nothing has changed. Nothing bad happened in the past. It’s just a father and daughter, happily reunited. Hopefully one day. Hopefully he’ll get healthy. Will he make it to my wedding? Will he be there to walk me down the aisle? I don’t know yet… But I really hope so. I don’t want to be one of those sad girls with no dad. I am sick of being that girl. I have been her for way too long. Longer than the last time I saw him. It’s part of my identity now. It’s part of my DNA. I don’t have a dad. But I really wish I did. I hope it changes. I hope he visits.
