Celeste woke up to the earth covered with fresh snow, most of the time she loved seeing the snow but not today. The day seemed miserable as she watches the blizzard hit the earth from her bedroom window. Since school was closed for the day, she was stuck inside with the wicked witch of Ohio. Ever since her father brought the wench home, Celeste hadn’t pick up her bow and arrows nor her slingshot to practice. She was too busy taking care of the household and doing the bitch’s bidding.
It was noon time when Celeste decided to make a batch of pumpkin spice cookies, while Doris her father’s lover sat in the living room watching TV and smoking her day away. The cowgirl learned long time ago from her mother how to make her grandfather’s favorite cookie without using a recipe. Several batches were completed when Doris ventured into the delicious smelling kitchen and grabbed a cookie to munch on. “These taste like shit.” Doris said in a nasty breath as she spit out the contents on the floor. Celeste was hurt when she spoke her words as she places another batch of cookies in the oven.
The minute Celeste put the cookies into the oven she swung around to stare at the horrible woman. “If ya don’t like em, don’t eat em! I didn’t make them for ya in the first place!” The next thing Celeste knew Doris threw the rest of her half eaten cookie and hit her in the face walking out of the kitchen and returning to her soap opera. Celeste bunches up her fist and let her body shake the frustration out. “One day, one day you will get what is due to you.” Celeste whispers out, and picks up the cookie particles on the floor and threw it in the garbage. She hears a roar of an engine coming into the snowy driveway, slipping and sliding. She smiles to see her father’s auto return home.
Celeste ran outside in the snow smiling with glee how her father acted like a kid playing with his toy in the snow. She could clearly see his green eyes glow with delight through the window of his car. When he reaches the end of the driveway, Celeste ran in the snow to hug and greet her father’s return home. “Happy Birthday my little darlin’.” Celeste beamed to know that he remember her birthday, since the other times he had forgotten. “Come papa let’s go inside, I will make you some lunch, are ya hungry?” Celeste offered in a happy voice. “Yep I is, been driving all night to get back home to y’all.” Celeste grabs his suitcase out of the car when Doris met her lover at the doorway.
Celeste watches the two hug each other and go inside the cozy log cabin home. She heard her father yell out that something was burning in the kitchen. Celeste dropped her fathers suitcase on the porch and ran inside. When she reached the oven she took note Doris tampered with the heat, she opens the oven door to burning cookies. “Damn it! You bitch how could you!” Celeste ripped out madder than a hornet. If her father wasn’t there Doris would have bitch slapped the cowgirl for her foul words, instead her father deescalated the situation with his kind heart. “Hey now girl ya don’t talk like that in this house and to Doris. What the hell is a matter with ya, ya know better girl.” Her father scolded Celeste.
Celeste wanted to tell her father he really picked crazy women, but held her tongue. “I am sorry for yelling at ya Doris, I guess I got mad for not paying attention.” Celeste didn’t look at Doris and threw out the burnt cookies in the trash. She adjusted the heat on the oven once more, and turned around to place more batter on the cookie sheet. When she took note she was left alone in the kitchen, she let a tear fall and began to slap a blob of batter on the cooking sheet mumbling hateful words. “Happy birthday to me, ya filthy animal!”
Celeste could hear her father and Doris goofing around. Doris’s giggles began to irritate the cowgirl. After the last batch of cookies, she tidied up the kitchen and went outside to shovel the snow off the driveway, happy to escape the inside of her home.
