Jerking With My Daddy

I wasn't surprised when my step-dad Mike moved out of our house during my first year in college. It had been building for a while. Mike wasn't around often enough, my mom said. He was hanging out too much with his friends. His friends weren't the kind of people she wanted around the house. She made several allusions to some sort of sexual escapades they were involved in, but I was never clear on the details.
At any rate, Mike had to leave the house. I guessed that a divorce was in the works, but I didn't want to get involved. I had never been too close with Mike, but I liked him.
When he called me asking for my help moving into his new apartment, I was hesitant. I didn't want to get caught in the middle of his separation from my mom, but I didn't want to blow Mike off just because he wasn't living with us anymore. Ultimately I decided to help him out, figuring it would be good karma.
I drove over to his apartment complex early Saturday morning. I jogged up the steps to his apartment and rang the bell.
"Hey, Chris, come on in." Mike said.
I walked into a spacious apartment that was half-filled with moving boxes. Mike had a few pieces of furniture set up and had obviously unpacked a lot of the boxes already, but I could see why he wanted help with the rest.
