8. An Explination
Did she just say this is my Daddy? I thought to myself. It couldnt be his chile he would have told me I mean we are best friends. "Im sorry but did she just say this is my daddy?" I asked Harry and Candy the girl he brought. "Yes she did but she isnt really my child she doesnt have a dad so I said she could call me daddy and I kinda lik eit and I really like Candy I think she is the one" Harry said pulling me aside. "I see that you like her and everything but please dont let the press hear her call you daddy until you know for sure that Candy is the one" I told him only wanting to help him do the right thing. "Okay I appreciate the advice and everything but me and Candy are just wanting keep this on the down low for now for the same reasons" He spoke back to me and we went back to Candy and the boys. I had to admit that the little girl was cute and kind of did look like Harry but maybe thats just my mind playing tricks on me. I walked over to Niall and asked him " Does Lucy look like Harry or is it just me ?" I asked "Yeah she kind of does but I think its the toddlerness cuz you know how children look when they are young." Niall reassured me "Yeah I am sure its nothing" I said "Yeah I mean I used to look just like my best mates dad when I was younger and I grew up to look just like my dad" Niall wasnt exactly good at being funny.
Candy was nice and her daughter was cute and I think that Harry might of found the right girl even if she did have a child. "So Candy when did you have Lucy ?" I asked her not knowing if that was too personal to ask "I had he when I was 16" She told me but she had a tear falling form her eye "I am sorry of it was too personal to ask I didnt mean to make you cry but may I ask why you are crying?" I asked her not know if she would only cry harder. " Um well I am crying because I dont like to remember how Lucy was conceived" She told me but cotinued to talk the boys were just looking and listening with content while Lucy was in the den playing with her dolls. "I was a victum of rape when I was 16 and a half the man told me that if I just stayed silent he wouldnt kill me and that he would just do what he did and leave me" she continued "I had no one to go to and I couldnt go to my mother because she died and my dad had kicked me out when I was 15 but there wasone person I could go to was my best friend Jennifer has been with me every step of the way she helps me out with Lucy all the time and I am very thankful for her" She finally finished talking and I was in tears and as were the other boys. I dont know how someone could be so strong and make it through something like that and raise a child as a single parent.
Wow Candy was so brave to go through something like that and raise a child at the same time. I decided to ask the name of the man who raped her " Candy if you dont mind me asking what is the name of the man that raped you ? " she looked at me for a minute and began to speak "His name is Johnny... Jonny Valencourt" She said the mans name and Harry began to cry I was sure why but I knew somehting that she had just said struck a nerve with him.
Harry started to cry after she told up the name of her attacker. I wasnt sure why but I was going to find out. "Harry are you okay?" I asked him unsure of what he would say "Um well" He paused for a minute when we heard a little voice at the kitchen entrance "Daddy are you okay?" It was Lucy "Yes honey I am fine I just need some air will you please excuse me for a moment" He said and wioth that he left.
