Afraid to Be Close, Part One The Split

Trevor Gaynes's parents, Bob and Henrietta, met in their sophomore year of high school. They got married two years later after graduation and had Trevor a year after they graduated. They lived in Santa Monica, which wasn't too far from Henrietta's close friends, Richard and Janice Parker, whom they had known since high school, and their daughter, Miranda, who lived in Los Angeles. Trevor's parents would frequently take him over to the Parkers' house to play with Miranda while the adults hung out and talked. Trevor and Miranda would play on the swings and slide and dig in Miranda's sandbox. As they got older they would simply play Miranda's video games and other board games in the game room. This continued until they graduated from junior high, when they began high school and their extracurricular activities made it harder for them to get together. Plus, Trevor's parents started arguing all the time about things such as Henrietta's constant nagging and Bob's getting too absorbed in work and never having time for the family, and they never felt like going out. They didn't want to have to tell their friends everything was fine when it wasn't, and they didn't feel like discussing their problems.

Trevor prayed and prayed for years that his parents would stay together. But although his parents were Christians, they stopped trusting in God to hold their marriage together because of all of their tension and disagreements, and when Trevor was nineteen and a sophomore in college, his mother and father got a divorce. Trevor became very angry with God for not answering his prayers the way he wanted Him to and decided never to trust God again. And if people who were married as long as his parents were married could split, he figured there was no hope for him, so he vowed to never fall in love.
