Two hours later, Savannah was in one of Shelby’s guest rooms resting and Shelby, Greyson, Queenie, Sarah, Cassidy and Grace were all waiting in Shelby’s living room to talk to the family doctor after he examined her.
“Savannah is going through heroine withdrawal. Heroin is highly addictive and withdrawal extremely painful. The drug quickly breaks down the immune system, finally leaving one sickly, extremely thin and bony person. From what she just told me, Savannah had been using drugs for years and just recently started to use heroine in the last few years. I don’t think that Savannah knows when her addiction became this bad. Buying heroin on the street, the person never knows the actual strength of the drug in that particular packet. Thus, users are constantly at risk of an overdose.”
“Oh my poor baby,” Sarah said from the corner sitting in a wingback chair with Mr. Brownstone by her side consoling her.
“Whatever may be going on in Savannah’s life, right now she needs intensive treatment and a resolution to any issues that may hinder her recovery,” the doctor said.
The tension in the room could be cut with a knife. No one knew what to do or say. How had they all missed this?
“This is all my fault,” Sarah said.
“Yes! It is your fault!” Grace said from across the room. “I should never have left my child in the care of you and Jackson. Look at Cassidy; if I had raised Shelby, there is no way that she would have turned out like this,” she finished.
“Now you wait just a minute” Queenie said. Queenie was known for not caring very much for Sarah but she was also fiercely protective of family and if Sarah could put up with Jackson all these years, she was family. “Perhaps if you had kept your legs closed to other people’s husbands you would not share a child with my son. Besides from what I understand, your daughter is no angel; she had an abortion a while back to cover up that she was, like you, fucking more than one dick at a time, but I digress,” she finished.
“CRAP!” Cassidy said.
“Oh God,” Shelby said. Grace spun around to look at her daughter.
“CASSIDY!” she said yelling at her. “Is that true? Have you disgraced yourself in such a way?” Cassidy was staring at her mother with her mouth open unsure what to do or say.
“I would not think that you could really judge what disgraceful is, Grace. I remind you again; you slept with my son while you and he were married to different people. So I am going to need you to take your righteous indignation to the corner and have a time out,” Queenie said to Grace.
