Chapter 25 : Dangerous

Today Lovey will be interrogated. When our lawyer told us this would be happening I immediately declined, I would not let my child be interrogated. From the start, I wanted to keep this whole thing far far away from her, but Isaac talked me into it, saying that her little testimony as small as it may be could put Miles in jail. Even though he didn’t want to make her also go through that.

I’m going down the stairs putting on my earrings and Lovey is on the couch playing on my phone.

“Love Mija, it’s time to go,” She looks up from the screen.

“Ok” Lovey said then walked to the entrance putting on her shoes. I watch her and sighed.

I can’t believe I’m actually doing this

“I’m sorry I can’t come,” Isaac says from beside me, I looked up at him.

“It’s OK, I got this,” I said trying to ease his worry and psych myself up at the same time.

“Ok, I’ll be at work, I’m just one call away.” Isaac then kissed me and walked towards the door, but before leaving Isaac kissed Lovey on the forehead.

“Bye lovebug.”

“Bye daddy,” she said then waved. I feel my stomach start to hurt, a sign of nervousness. I lay a warm hand on my stomach then take in a deep breath, in through my lungs and out from my mouth.

Me and Lovey are waiting in a waiting room then a door opens and a woman comes out, and walks over to where me and Lovey are sitting.

“Hi, you must be Lovey, my name is Lena, could you come with me please?”

“Ok,” Lovey said before getting off the chair she was sitting on, she took the hand of the woman named Lena then walked away with her. She looked back and waved at me with a smile.

Lovey’s POV

I walked into a room that had cute cartoon drawings on the walls and a toy box in one corner of the room, one table in the middle of the room with a file on it and two chairs sitting across from one another. Me and Lena both sat down.

“Lovey, could you tell me your full name please?”

“Ok, My full name is Lovey, Catia, Zolomen.”

“Wow, what a beautiful name, thank you,” I said with a smile.

“Ok, Lovey,” the woman said she opened the file and took out a picker of a man with beautiful dark blue eyes and brown hair. “Do you know this man?”

“Mhmm,” I hummed and nodded my head.

“Good, well this man’s name is Miles Gray. Could you tell me about the time you met Mr. Gray?”

“I met him at school.”

“Oh yes, you mean at the parking lot.”

“No,” I said and shook my head. Lena looked surprised.

One year ago…

Me and mommy got to my new school, when we walked in it looked big, the floors wear way cleaner than my old schools and there were kids running around in the same clothes I’m wearing. We get to the office and my mom lets go of my hand.

“Mija, could you wait out here while I talk to your new principal.”

“Ok,” When she went into the office I saw a bench and walked over to sit on it before I did I took off my bag grabbed a colouring book from inside and started to colour. Not too long after I heard footsteps belonging to someone other than a kid.

“Milo, class is starting, go quick.”

“Ok, bye dad.” A boy said then ran off, I capped drawing though.

“Why are you being so greedy about this? If you have the land give it way, don’t you want money?”

“I do, but I’m going to keep a hold of it for a while, just until I want something bad enough.”

“That’s stupid.”

“Look, you do things your way and I do things my way, and I think I already have a use for the land.”

“Really? What are you ganna do with it?”

“You’ll see, it’s-”

“Oh shit, hold that thought, I’m getting a call from dad.”

“Really?”

“Yeah, I’ll be in the car could you wait in here?”

“Sure.” I hear one of the men run down the hall, then I hear foot’s steps coming my way.

I look over and I see a very tall man sitting next to me, he’s staring at his phone at what seems to be a picture of someone, I try looking over without him seeing and on the screen was my mom.

“That’s a picture of my mommy I say.” The man looked up surprised, his eye shined from the lights coming from the ceiling making his Navy eye look even more pretty.

“She’s what?”

“She’s my mom, why do you have a picture of my mommy?” He blinked a couple of times before saying anything.

“My and you mom are friends.”

“Oh really?”

“Yeah.”

“Where’s your mom?”

“She’s in the office talking to my new principal, do you want me to get her?”

“No!” He said, I jumped back a bit. “I mean, no, don’t call her, better yet don’t tell her we met.”

“Why?” I said tilting my head to the side.

“Because I want to surprise her.” He said with a smile.

“Interesting, Lovey could you tell me about you meeting Miles for the second time.”

“Ok so-”

I had to stay late at school because of a play the first graders were having. Mom came and watched me perform as the prince, some of the boys were jealous that I got the part expectably because I’m a girl, but that’s not stopping me. After the play was over some of the kids left with their parents, but my mom is talking to Chase and Joshes mom, Sarah. We were playing tag but Josh got tired.

“Ok, you guys win.” He huffed while trying to catch his breath.

“YAY!” Me and Chase said at the same time than high fived as Josh sat on the curd. I looked over at my mom and Sarah talking then I took a seat on the curb too.

“When do you think they’ll stop talking?” Chase asked.

“They’ll probably go on forever,” Josh said.

“No they won’t they’ll run out of things to talk about,” I said, the twins looked at me at the same time.

“Doubt it,” They said at the same time, I raised my eyebrow.

“Is that a bet?” I asked.

“What if it is?” Josh said.

“Chase, Josh, come on let’s go,” Their mom calls before I could even make a bet with them.

“This isn’t over,” I say getting up and off the curb.

“Whatever,” Chase said then they ran off. But then out of the corner of my eye I see a man, I know that man.

Isn’t he my mom’s friend?

I walk over towards him with a smile on my face. As I walked closer I could see him more clearly because of the street lights. His hair was like a bird's nest, his eyes were dark. He didn’t look like that nice man I met on my first day of school, he looked dangerous.

Authors note

It's been like 2 weeks since I updated, I'm sorry about that, I've been going through some stuff, I was in a brief relationship and this guy. He made me feel really good about myself and I trusted him after telling him that I'd been hurt.

He kept reassuring me that he would never do anything to hurt me, but then he breaks up with me, and literally not even the next day later I find out that he's been flirting with girls.

And the funniest part about it is I'm not even mad that we broke up, I don't really care, I can't force him to be in a relationship. I'm mad that he only wanted me for my body.

Sorry about that, I just really needed to get that off my chest, but because of that I've been kind of wallowing in pity I'm really sorry for the slow updates, but bear with me especially because these are some of the last chapters of this book.
