"Dad, I really don't want to fight with you. As Tay said, I chose him and I expect you to respect my decisions." I say and Tay gives me a million-dollar smile. I know Dad was shocked and hurt when he found out my past and I don't blame him for not wanting me to get back with Tay.
"I guess I don't have a choice than to respect your decisions. I hope you know what you are doing Olivia because I don't want you to get hurt again. I am not going to lie and say I am happy because I'm not. You have suffered so much at a young age, life hasn't been fair to you and I hope that you get all the happiness in the world that you are seeking for," Dad says and my heart melts at his words.
"I am happy Dad!" I walk to him and take both of his hands in mine.
"I appreciate you looking out for me. It makes me happy that you care but I promise I am happy. There is no person in this world that can make me happy like Tay does I promise," I say and Dad gives me a smile.
I watch as Olivia hugs her dad and I smile proudly of her for standing up for us. I am the happiest man on the planet right now. Olivia and Joe seat in the living room and I pad the stairs to our room. I strip out of my suit and get into jeans and a t-shirt. My phone rings when I walk out of the bathroom. Jessica's name flashes on the screen and I answer.
"Hey?" I say putting my tennis shoes on.
"I have good news for you!" I sit up straight leaving my shoes unfinished.
"I am listening?" I push my hair off my forehead.
"I know who stole the money and is the last person you will ever suspect in your entire life," she says.
"Who?" I ask quickly.
"I can't tell you on the phone. Let's meet at the corner cafe?"
"Okay, I will be there in 30 minutes!" I say and hang up. I finish tying my shoes, grab my phone, and walk out of the room.
I enter the kitchen to find Olivia handing her dad a plate with a sandwich and I walk behind and wrap my arm around her and she leans back to me.
"Should I warn him to put the hospital number on the speed dial!" I ask with a smile in my voice. She lets out a giggle and it is the best giggle ever. I love seeing her like this and I hope everything stays like this forever.
"Technically I didn't prepare the sandwich! He just told me what to do and where to put the ingredients so if something goes wrong then it's his fault!" She whispers and I bite back a laugh. I won't mind ending up in the hospital because of her food poisoning but for others...
"We are going to have cooking lessons," I say as I watch Joe eat his sandwich.
"Are you going somewhere?" She asks and turns around and looks at me.
"Yeah, I have to meet with Jessica about the theft case," I tell her and tuck her hair behind her ear.
"Do you want to come with me?"
"No, I promised my father that we will spend the day together." She informs and I hum in response.
"Doing what?" I pry.
"He hasn't said anything yet but I will text you if we leave the house,"
"Okay, love you" I peck her lips.
"Joe?" I nod at him and walk to the front door.
I hope in the driver's seat and drive into the less busy road. 30 minutes later, I drive my car into the corner cafe lot and climb out. I walk to the small cafe and push the door open and walk-in. I look around and Jess lifts her hand in the air and I walk to her.
"So, who is it?" I asked as I slid into the booth.
"What? No, how are you doing Jess?"
"Jess?" I warn and a smile breaks on her lips.
"Okay fine! Where is your sense of humor?" She hands me her phone.
"I don't have a sense of humor," I say and click on the video. I watched the video from the beginning not believing my eyes.
"Yeah, it is shocking. Out of all people it had to be him."
"But how? Why?" I ask no one in particular. I can suspect many people but him? It is so unlike him.
"What are you going to do now?" Jess asks. I hand her back her phone and lean back on the booth.
"How did you find the video? Because when I checked it was erased from the database?" I ask avoiding her question because I don't know what to do. My mind is still processing what it just saw.
"Yes, It was erased from the database but there was another camera that he didn't see. It was well hidden purposely for this kind of stuff." She says and takes a sip from her chocolate milkshake.
"Let's go?" I say grabbing my car keys.
"His place," I say and place Jess milkshake bill on the table. We walk out of the cafe and walk to my car.
"Where is your car?" I ask as I hope in the driver's seat.
"I came here with a taxi," I drove into the busy highway.
"You haven't told me what you are going to do?"
"That's because I don't know," I say, and my phone buzzes. I grab it and open the message from Olivia.
Went out with my father to watch a game, it reads and I almost let out a laugh because I know Olivia knows nothing about soccer.
I drive into the house lot and we both climb out. I place my phone back in my back pocket and walk to the front door. I knock and wait. The door opens revealing Danny.
"Boss?" He questions.
"Why? Why did you steal from me?"
