Between Innocent

By MistyFanForever6

Other / Romance

Chapter 1

This is the first of my volume stories called 'Between'. This one's titled 'Between Innocent'. And like many of my past stories. There's secrets and concealment as well as both romance and drama. However, unlike those. This first story is complete. Unfortunately, before I start the second story. I'm going to finish another chapter to my turtle story.

As of what the story is about. Hopefully the summary said enough. But before I wrap this up. I want to make it clear, to be safe. Everybody's OOC! So please no pointless flames about how I should keep them in character.

That all said. Enjoy the story.


Can't Run-Away

Lil opened her eyes at the sound her name being called. Lying beside her brother Phil. Lil sat-up in the crib, rubbing her sleepy eyes. Thinking to herself, this better be good. Immediately hearing her name being called again in a hush whisper. Lil knew whose voice was calling her.

Knowing this, her sight fell on a bald baby sitting up in his crib. "Something wrong, Tommy?" She asked him. But once glancing at the sleeping Chuckie beside him and hearing her brother's snoring telling her Phil was asleep too. Lil cross her arms in huff at Tommy. "Why you wake me. Today was busiest. I wanna go beddy-bye."

"You will, Lil." Began Tommy, crawling over to her while keeping from waking the other babies up. Though she was growing angry with her friend. Lil allow him to sit beside her so not to bother Phil. "But wanteded give you this." Before Lil had time to ask what? Tommy stretching the front of his diaper, stuck his hand in and pulled out two chocolate malted-milk balls. Lil's eyes widen.

"I thought Angelica ate them?" Lil said, recalling the 3-year-old had indeed eaten the bag of malted-milk balls -while the babies continued playing mask detective but with grandpa Lou this time- where wasn't long until Angelica got a tummy ache from all that chocolate. So Lil assumed Angelica ate them all up.

"I took one for you and one for me, before my grandpa started playing with us." Tommy explained. "I know we can't run away together. But we can eat chocolates together." He added.

By those words. Lil was no longer mad to been woken as she took the offering candy. Candy that taste yummier -especially since it was 'warmer'- then the first one grandpa Lou gave her. Feeling the melting sweet within her mouth. Lil closely stare at Tommy who was in the middle of licking off the chocolate on his hands. It was here she's reminded of her early statement to Angelica of why she 'double-crossed' her. However, she was finding she been incorrect of her statement. And Lil not one to keep what she's feeling to herself. Decided to tell Tommy.

"Tommy."

"Yeah?" He said, continued cleaning his hands.

"When I saids Angelica you are cute sleeping like a baby. I was wrong."

"You were?" Here Tommy looked to Lil, though he was still licking chocolate from his hands. He really like chocolate. Although the scene of the bald baby trying to give his attention to her but also not stop enjoying his treat. Had Lil giggling to herself as she carried on.

"Uh-huh. You look cute even if you not sleeping." With the stun almost frozen look upon Tommy and him halting in mid-lick of his right hand. Lil giggled but not loud enough to wake the other two. "Thanks for malted. Nighty-night." Giving Tommy a quick smile, Lil laid back down, turning her back to him. Unknown to Tommy. Lil's smile never drops even through sleep.

Meanwhile Tommy still unmoving, stared at the now laying Lil. His eyes trailed up to the pink bow in her hair. A smile crept to his lips. Guess I still a sucker for a pink bow. He thought before crawling back to his side of the crib and under the blanket all the babies were sharing.

As the 1-year-old dreamed of Spike, Chuckie, Phil and a certain baby with a pink bow in her hair. Tommy believed that malted-milk balls has become his favorite candy from now on.

Althea Kerr: This is a tale that is all too familiar to South African readers having lived through a war era on our borders and beyond.

Jennifer Kane Martin: I am a high school teacher, and the dialogue and inner thoughts are PERFECT. However, the lack of capitalization, punctuation, and the typos are distracting. Don't let these get in the way of a potentially good story.
