18. Prove it
After I finished my story I sat and watched Reese. Was he going to make me leave? Was he going to arrest me? I sat and waited for his expression to change. He sat and watched me for a good minute or so.
"I have always thought of the day you would come back to me. I always thought that I would be sitting in a diner and when I least expect it I would look over and see a beautiful black haired brown eyed woman walking through the door. i always knew that right when I saw you I would know who you were. I just wanted to see you again. I tried to find you Amelia. As soon as I first started here I searched for you. I did my reseaerch, but there was NOTHING under your name after the orphanage. I had no way to find you. The only thing that kept me going was that there was ne certificate of death in your file. I went to the orphanage to see if you were still there once. When I asked an old grey haired nun about you, she made me leave. She rushed me out in a hurry and told me never to come back. Now I know why. I don't know how she knew about what you do but she did. And guess she didn't like it. I can't say that I particularly like what you do either, but I won't stop you. I love you Amelia. No matter what you do."
I walked up to Reese and wrapped my arms around the back of his neck. I pressed myself close to his body. I got up on the tip of my toes and whispered soflty into his ear.
