Chapter ten

Luca's head shot up as he heard a knock on the door.

Milo stood at the doorway, "dinners ready" he said before walking away.

Luca lightly shook Remi awake. "It's time for dinner little one"

Remi softly groaned and shook her head as she leaned into Luca's chest.

"You said you were hungry earlier" he picked her up and put her on her feet. "Let's go eat then you can go back to bed, ok?"

Remi opened her eyes and puffed out her bottom lip making her cheeks chubbier than usual "ok"

Remi held on to Luca's hand as they walked downstairs and to the kitchen.

Milo, Ethan, and Levi sat at the long table in the dining area of the kitchen.

All on their phones.

The food had already been placed

There was a smaller plate between Levi and milo placed for little Remi.

Luca walked her over to the seat and helped her get in before taking his own next to Ethan who was in front of Remi.

As soon as Luca sat down the boys began eating.

"Wheres xander?" Ethan asked as he took a sip of his cold water.

"Probably out getting drunk or fucking some girl"

"Hey," Luca said.

"No cursing around Remi" Ethan finished.

"She doesn't even know what we're talking about. I highly doubt she'll ever say it" milo rolled his eyes.

As Ethan and Luca scolded their younger brother, Remi turned to Levi.

"Whats fucking mean," she said to him.

His face turned cold, "something you should never say or do"

Reno knitted her eyebrows together in confusion.

How do I do that?

"Why the hel- why aren't you eating?!" he said as he looked down at her.

She hadn't touched her food.

"Huh?"

"Eat your food" he brought the plate closer to the edge so she could get it better.

"This is mine?" her eyes widened.

"Yes. Eat"

"S-so I can eat it?" she observed the pasta. "It's mine?"

Levi's face softened, "yes you can eat it, you can eat whatever you want to here" he never wanted her to worry about if she could eat or not.

Remi eagerly picked up the fork that was too big for her and began eating the pasta.

She had eaten so many good foods so far but this had to be the best.

She finished just before her brothers.

There was a little sauce on her chin and the side of her mouth but she didn't notice.

"C-can I have more?" she asked nervously.

"Drink some water first," Ethan said as he got up.

"Here" Levi handed her a big cup of water with melting ice.

She began drinking it slowly but as she drank faster she grip on the cup loosened and spilled on lap and chest.

Ethan rushed over with a tea towel in hand and began drying her off and wiping off the sauce on her face.

"Im sorry" she whispered.

"It's okay, you didn't do anything wrong.

It didn't feel like it though, she knew she shouldn't have been drinking it with permission and now she made a mess like she always did.

Her lip began to wobble and her eyes stung.

"You must be freezing, let's get you in the bath. He picked her up and set her on his hip.

As he walked her to her bedroom he texted Emma to come over.

"I-im s-sorry" she shivered as tears ran down her face.

"it's okay. You didn't do anything wrong" he sat down on her bed.

"B-but I didn't a-ask If I could have water" she sobbed.

He tilted her chin up so she was looking at him, "you don't ever have to ask for anything ever again. You never should have, whatever aaron told you was wrong. Ok?"

Her crying slowed down and she nodded.

"I need to hear you say ok"

"Ok," she said.

He smiled down at her and kissed her forehead.

"Remi, you ready for a bath?" Emma smiled at her as she walked into the room.

"We've checked every bar, store, hotel, restaurant, and they're old apartment. We can't find them, boss"

"Dont stop until you do" Vincent glared at the lead investigator. "I don't care if you have to search the whole fucking world, don't stop until you find them!" he yelled.

"Yes sir" the man nodded and walked out of Vincent's office.

He was working at the headquarters of their 'business'

He was pissed that he hadn't found the bitch who hits his baby sister.

But he kept his anger composed and focuses on the task at hand.

It didn't take him long to find their apartment but when he sent guys to go check it out Aaron and Clare were gone.

He had people looking for them all day but they couldn't find them.

He got up from his chair and left his office. On the elevator ride, he texted the investigator that worked for him.

What the address of the apartment?

-

Thirty minutes later he was stepping out of his car. There were run-down apartments all around him but as he looked at the address George sent him the building looked like it wasn't worst yet.

He walked but two flights of stairs and went to the end of the hall to 314.

He opened the unlocked door and walked in.

The stench almost made him gag.

He turned the light switch on and a yellow light and buzzing went through the apartment.

There were stains on the dark tan carpet and holes on the dirty walls. The couch looked infected and the tv was shattered.

There was dried blood on the kitchen counter and cabinets.

His blood boiled at the thought of it being Remi's.

He walked down the hallway and opened the first door, the bathroom looked clean despite the shattered mirror.

He went to the next room ask saw a small mattress with a small blanket, the few toys on the floor confirmed that his sister used to sleep there.

There were spider webs in the corners and holes in the walls.

He may bed on to the last room.

There was a slightly bigger bed and a bed frame in the room. There were bloodstains on the bed and floor. He walked deeper inside and into the closet.

It was empty except for a little purple blanket in the corner.

He picked it up, there were small elephants in the middle with the word Remi around them.

He quickly left the apartment and headed home.

-

After hours of washing it the washing machine and letting it dry in the drying, he finally walked towards Remi's room.

It was around four in the morning and everyone was asleep.

He slowly opened the door and approached her bed, he opened the fluffy blanket up and put the blanket in my arms that held her bear.

He wrapped her in the banket and left her room.

As he stepped inside his room he thought about what he just did.

What the fuck is wrong with me?

-
