Coming for the morning coffee next day, after the incident with Prince's mother, our folks were shocked seeing Prince’s purple fists, elbows and feet. (He doesn’t wear socks at home and he is always in short sleeves t-shirt. He also took Antonio’s pill two times to eliminate pain). When they asked him what happened, he apologized saying he doesn’t want to be rude, but he doesn’t want to talk about it. Well, our moms and B.W. persisted to hear it for they were concerned about him. Their persistence just made him leave on the balcony where he sat and looked at the sea horizon in total silence. Boss was little bit angry at them and he told them:
- Was that really necessary? If the boy doesn’t want to talk about it, let him be. He has his reasons.
My Ivy and I felt we should tell them. So, we told them about his mother’s call yesterday and what she said about us and our son. Our moms started to cry while my dad was very upset. They all wanted to go to the balcony and shower him with love, but we asked them not to do it since we know: when he wants to be alone, he must be left alone for any kind of forced contact with him will just make things worse. Then B.W. said to all of us:
- My husband and I have some news for you. This situation with Prince and his mother just forced me to tell you about our plan we have with him that we wanted to tell you later …….. You know my husband and I couldn’t have children. We never had strong desire to adopt a child until we met Prince. He captured our hearts since the moment we saw him and he started to work in the Hotel. We are old and nobody knows how much we’ll live longer. We want to have a child before we die … (sighing and sobbing) – You know we love Prince as our own son and we never felt such love for anyone as we feel for him ….... We have been thinking a long time about making him legal member of our family. We found solution and I believe it is a right time to tell him that.
She said they checked the law about adoption. It doesn’t allow adoption of the adult person, but they found the solution with the help of the family lawyer. I won’t bother you with complicated law clauses because it will take my time and space in the diary. I will just say that it will work and we all supported their idea. The only “problem” was my Prince: would he accept it or not. Knowing him, he would but he’ll have a condition and I was right when he returned to the living room. B.W. asked him to sit near her and when he did, she placed her palms on his cheeks and kissed his forehead. Then she told him what she told us. My Prince took a couple of moments to think and than he said to her and Boss:
- Being your son, mom and dad, is a great honor and a privilege …. I have no words to express my joy …… I accept, but I have one condition …… I don’t want to be included into your testament and heritage ……
Boss (smilingly): Here he goes again.
Prince: Sorry, dad … I just can’t. You already included me in the first testament and I honestly, I don’t know what to do with it. I already have too much. I’m more than content with what we have now and such things rather burdening me.
B.W. skillfully ended conversation that pleased both sides. She said:
- My son, accepting our suggestion to make you legal member of our family is sufficient for us. We will do all paper work and when the time comes, we’ll talk about it. That time is not now, but when it comes, we will respect your decision.
We all stood up and applauded loudly while B.W. showered his face with kisses and tears. Boss hugged him firmly and tapping his back he welcomed him into his family. We were all happy for my Prince. He deserve to be loved and have parents. Not biological, but adopted and sometimes they are better parents to their children than biological parents. (take Prince’s mom for example). In honor of that great event we are going to have special supper in boss’s house tomorrow. They will order all food from the hotel restaurant.
My Prince had one small intervention in the orphanage yesterday. Luka called him from Ena’s phone and told him the older orphan bully (16) took his gadget by the force and that the teachers does nothing about it saying they have to solve the problem among themselves. That bully always takes their things and he keeps some for himself and sell the ones he doesn’t like or can get a good money for it. Hearing that the bully is in the high school and getting his name and description, my Prince and Ivy waited for him at the front of the school. When he showed up, they came out of the car. My Prince approached him and asked him for his name while Ivy stood on the other side to stop him if he decide to run. The kid didn’t want to say his name for he recognized them from the orphanage. My Prince grabbed him for both arms and saw Luka’s gadget on his wrist. He told him to hand him the gadget but the kid refused. My Prince twisted his arms and took it from him by the force. When the kid saw he was humiliated before his friends from school, he told my Prince to fuck himself. Of, course, it was mistake. My Prince grabbed him for his cheeks with one hand and pulled out his tongue with other hand squeezing it to the point of pain. Then he spit in his mouth and said very sharply:
- You have very dirty mouth, little punk. What’s wrong?! You don’t like to be treated the way you treat others?! …. Listen to me very carefully you piece of shit. If you ever touch Luka again or anyone else from orphanage I will get you. You will never know when and where but I will turn your miserable life into hell and you will learn how is to leave in fear.
Then he slightly slapped him and told him to get lost. The kid obeyed and left. Since my luvs are permitted to visit Ena and Luka only twice a month, they called him and told him to come at the entrance for they have his gadget. Luka was very happy but worried that the bully will revenge. When my Prince told him that he wouldn’t dare, Luka hugged him, kissed him on the cheek, thanked him and ran into the building.
I’m 27 weeks pregnant now. 13 more to go. I visited my doctor with my mom and dad again and did complete check of my health and pregnancy progress. My blood, urine, heart and other tests are perfectly normal. The baby is almost 1 kg heavy and 40 cm long. She said that my baby can see now because his eyes opened. She also said that there is 80% chances that my baby will survive in premature baby delivery or if something goes wrong with my pregnancy. I was very happy to hear it, because I can’t imagine losing my baby. After the doctor, I came home and my mom treated me with nice tea and low fat cookies. My dad celebrated my pregnancy on his way: having couple shots of very strong Istrian grape brandy. While we are waiting for my luvs to come home, my mom prepares the lunch for us. After I post this diary, I’m gonna sit in my dad’s lap and disturb him while he watches sport channel. I’m daddy’s naughty girl. LOL.
