Time Will Tell

Tate Polsier is a triplet. She has always had a good life. The best sisters, a loving mum. Her and her sisters, Kassie and Kimmi, decide to move to college. It all goes very wrong from there.


4. Caleb


‘Caleb, dude, I’m going to the white house!’ Jamie exclaimed excitedly. ‘No way dude!’ I replied happily slapping him on the back. I hope I get something like that, not quite the white house but, something a little challenging. ‘Caleb.’ Mr Galdore called me into his office. ‘Caleb, have a seat.’ He said smiling. I sat down on one of the chairs in front of his desk. ‘Now Caleb, you and Jamie are the best FBI agents I’ve had and especially as you’re both English, it’s a surprise! I have assigned Jamie to the white house security squad. I am assigning you something completely different.’ He said. I nodded. I hope it’s not something like, look after a super spy puppy or something dumb. ‘You are going to be the personal guard of a young woman called Tate Polsier. She was imprisoned by her ‘boyfriend’ for 4 years. She has a 3 year old daughter called Isabelle. She is the result of an unprotected rape.’ Galdore said grimly. ‘Not the first I guess?’ I asked. Galdore shook his head. ‘Unfortunately no. She was imprisoned at her college where she had moved with her sisters. She is a triplet. He took her the very day they moved in and never let her go. People around the college thought they were a couple. He kept her bruises well hidden. Anyway this is her case file, read it tonight. You’re leaving tomorrow at 1pm. You’ll be gone for a year or more so pack light, you can buy new clothes when you get there.’ He said. I was shocked. I took the case file, shook his hand and left the room.

 Jamie was already on his flight home to tell his parents when I got back to our shared flat.  I didn’t bother. I made pasta bolognaise and sat to read the case file, then decided against it. I need to eat first. Then pack. Then it’s the gory details. I finished my pasta and washed up the bowl, dried it and put it back in the cupboard. I pulled out the suitcase from underneath my bed and packed light, just like Galdore said. I packed all the essentials and then zipped it up. Putting it by the front door, I grabbed the case file from the kitchen table. I went back to my room and lay on the bed, kicking off my shoes. I opened the folder and saw the most beautiful thing in the world. Tate Rosalie Polsier aged 20. Sh*t, which meant she was 16, when he first… I stopped myself. I couldn’t bear to think that someone could hurt this beautiful person. She had grey eyes, pale skin and the most beautiful honey coloured hair. She was so perfect. I rubbed my thumb over her picture. I started reading.

Her injuries, old and new, included 6 broken ribs, fractured elbows, a dislocated shoulder, cracked jaw, bruising everywhere, broken fingers and wrists (defensive) and internal damage. She gave birth to Isabelle in a hospital but they discharged themselves before they could be questioned about the bruising on her thighs. Yeah right, more like he dragged her and Isabelle out of there. I read her hobbies and things and then saw that there was a smaller case file tucked in the back of Tate’s. I opened it and it was Isabelle’s. She looked just like her mother. She also had some injuries. A broken arm, fractured ankle and bruising. Sick motherf*cker!

I saw a name on Isabelle’s information page that stuck out. Aiden. I decided to do a little research. Aiden Zachary Lontario, 22 years old. That made him 18 when he took her. Wow, what a screwed up 18 year old. He had dark hair and dark eyes, to me he looked normal. Looks aren’t everything. My eyes drooped so I put the case file back in its folder and put it in my backpack. Turning off the light, I yawned and curled up under the covers. When I closed my eyes all I could see was her. How could anyone intentionally hurt someone so beautiful?
