The Girls Holiday (Part 1 )
“Welcome Home” was all I heard as I waddled into the house after returning from holiday. There stood my Mother-in-Law greeting us into the house. She came over to look after the house while we were gone. Emily my GF (Well Ex now) went and gave her a hug “Oh i have so much to tell you”, “but first let’s show Jake to his new room” i was picked up and carried up to my new awaiting bedroom and I just sobbed at what I saw.
Lets rewind a little. My name is Jake and I am 18 Years Old - I suffer from a rare condition called Pygmism, basically my body is developed but I am no taller than a 7 Year old. It does have its advantages of being able to fit into places where normal people cant fit. Being able to fit into kids clothes that are cheaper than Adults but with all Advantages come the negatives of always having to produce my ID to go into anywhere. Some places even deny me entry cause of my height and structure, all my GF friends speaking in context of like I am a child. See I am very independent I can just about reach the kettle to make myself a cup of tea when needed or being able to make a meal when Emily decides to go out for the night. it does wind me up that everyone speak to me as a child “Do you need help hunny” “Can you reach”. Emily I met when I was 16 we actually went to school together and decided once leaving to move into a house together, she is very supportive of me and keeps trying to encourage me to do more and more things. I am scared to leave the house for fear of being judged but she tells me to ignore what people think. Emily is very tall (well anyone would be taller than be to be honest) and some would say that she is a bit out of my league.
“Honey, I am home” she yells out as she comes through the door kicking off her heels after finishing work at the local office. Sat in the living room as usual playing on the PlayStation I smile, Remember I have my friends coming over tonight to discuss “The Girls Holiday” she keeps calling it. She is soo excited at the prospect of going away that they have been planning it for like 2-3 months. I do not understand why as it is only a rubbish little getaway for 2 weeks down to the local Beach staying in a Caravan (oooo so excited) - Other hand I was more excited at the prospect of staying by myself for 2 weeks with no-one looking after me. See since we met and moved in there has been the odd occasion where she has left me but I have never been left overnight or a period of time by myself, I am unsure why I guess she has never felt the need to go anywhere but finally after 2 Years the day has nearly come. “If you need the toilet Jake then just go” She exclaims while sitting on the couch “I have been watching you jiggling that leg and doing the potty dance for the last 10 minutes”. She was right i have been so focused playing on the PlayStation and finishing of the game that I have been holding it in. I guess some would say i have gotten a little Lazy and relaxed with our relationship to how it was before.
I suddenly finish off and leg it to the toilet, tracksuit bottoms down I look at my childish pants, Due to my condition I only fit in Kids clothes as mentioned above we do try to get plainest items but you cannot get boxers for a 7 Year old so therefore I have to wear pants instead, I have come to acceptance of what will be will be but still it does get me down a little. While looking down I noticed a small little spot on them, “Oh no I must have dribbled a little” I exclaim, the embarrassing thing is this is not the first time it has happened. Emily got so mad last time and she keeps making comment that my pants smell of wee and maybe we should go to the doctors if it keeps happening, As I flush and get dressed I gulp thinking shall I tell her or not - I exit the toilet and was taken back as she was standing outside, “Jack did you make it in time” she says at me with a look on her face, Thoughts was racing round my head ( Shall I tell her the truth, Shall I Lie?) I snapped back “Of course I am not 5 I know how to go to the stupid toilet” - Suddenly she grabs my trousers and yanks them down, I could only hang my head in shame as I knew what she could see “What on earth is this Jake, A Wet Spot and then you lied about it to me, I am so Angry that you lied to me” " now quick please hurry upstairs have a shower and get dressed my friends are due any moment" “unless of course you would like to discuss your problems of keeping you pants dry to Charlotte, Jessica and Louise” I quickly shake my head now bend over and pull my trousers on and hurry to the top of the stairs. - Just in time I thought as I hear the familiar sound of the doorbell going…
