Mom Literally Only Cares About Money

Story Time Animated

Woow that was close. Ever since I was little, Dad and I have always been like two peas in a pod. We lived by the sea and swam together with the sea animals everyday, BUT my Mom AKA Miss Perfect was never happy about anything- she loved complaining.

"I'm gonna call you Inky!"

"Mom! Meet my pet, Inky. Dad and I saved it from a shark!"

"What? Sea animals are not pets. They're dangerous! Your father knows better, we work with them everyday."

"You're too paranoid. She loves the octopus and it's harmless, she can keep it."

My parents worked together as marine scientists at a multi billion government research lab named Vought's lab, but they never saw eye to eye on things especially with the sea animals they worked with and she always liked picking a fight with dad about money. Once dad took us out to a fancy restaurant for my 15th birthday, mom looked at the bill and threw such a tantrum, embarrassing both me and dad.

"Why would you bring us to a place that would cost us an arm and a leg."

"Calm down darling, we can afford it, and plus it's for our baby girl."

"Well, our lifestyle is getting a little too expensive and one of us has to do something to make sure we don't lose everything."

I didn't know what mom was talking about, but all I knew is that she just ruined my birthday. And then soon after the next worse thing in my life happened.
