8. Chapter 8

Cami left the pub in a complete rush. She started running and she couldn't stop. The path she was on passed her house and she didn't stop. Everything was falling apart and it was all Niall's fault. Niall had messed everything up for her.

Her job was everything and without it she truly had nothing. How was she going to explain to her mother she lost her job? Cami's job was the main source of income in the house.

Yes, her mother did work but it didn't pay hardly anything. Cami's mother made below minimum wage and only worked about twelve hours a week. She mainly stayed home trying to take care of the younger kids. Anything was an excuse for her not to go out and find better work.

Cami paid most of the bills, well half of them ended up being late anyway, and bought almost everything. Her mother occasionally paid the taxes on the house but the last time her mother gave any of her money to Cami for bills, food, or the taxes was four months ago. Ever since then Cami hadn't seen anything.

She had been noticing her mother buying herself more clothing and jewelry though. She would ask Cami to watch them on Friday and Saturday nights but Cami couldn't cancel on the biggest night for tips. Cami would always ask the next oldest, John, to watch the rest of them.

John was fourteen and worked on a farm a few miles away from their house. He gave Cami half of the money he earned each week. Cami remember the first time he gave her the money.

"Cami," John whispered sneaking up on her.

"Yes John?" she asked feeling annoyed.

Cami hadn't known that her little brother had got himself a job, at only thirteen and a little more than a year ago.

"Here, I hope it helps," John handed Cami fifty euros. "I've been working on Thompson's farm. He said he'd pay me fifty euros each week."

"John, you don't need to work sweetie," she pulled him in for a hug. "I'm going to take care of you."

"But we didn't have electricity for three days last week Cami! Let me help you!" John understood the problems the family was having.

John was now making seventy-five euros every two weeks because the Thompson farm wasn't doing that much but he still gave Cami thirty-five euros a week. The rest he kept in a jar buried in the back yard for emergencies.

Cami didn't make hardly anything at the pub which was really sad considering how much work she really did. All her duties consisted of being a waitress, a busboy, a dishwasher when it was slow, and she cleaned the place top to bottom at the end of the night.

Even though she made a hundred euros a week plus tips it hardly covered the bills. Plus there were nine people to feed and clothe in the house. John would buy his own clothes but the other kids, ranging from ten to four, couldn't work even if they wanted to.

Cami felt tears sting her cheeks as she realized that she would have to find another job today if she wanted her family to keep the house. The taxes for the quarter were due in two weeks and they would be five hundred euros. Cami also had to pay the electricity that was a hundred and seventy-five euros.

Her phone started buzzing and brought Cami back to reality. She answered before looking at the caller ID.

"Hello," Cami said trying to calm her breath so whoever it was wouldn't know she was crying.

"Cami Sheffield?" a man said through the phone.

"Yes?" Cami said sounding confused.

"This is Officer Bridge. Is your mother Abagail Sheffield?" his tone was serious.

"Yes sir," Cami said turning around.

Something had happened and she could feel it. She had to get back to the kids.

"I'm going to need you to come down to the hospital please. Is there someone you could call to watch your younger siblings? I don't think you want to bring them down here."

"How soon do I need to be there?" Cami asked speed walking toward the house.

"The sooner the better," his voice reflected that he wanted to say something but couldn't.

"I'll be down there before the hour is up," she reassured him.

Cami hung up the phone and started running toward the house. She had no clue what was going on or what her mother had done but she needed to make sure that the other kids were safe. She knew that John would be at the Thompson farm for another hour or two and there wasn't enough time to get him.

There was really only one person she could call to watch the kids. Only one other person who might do it for free that is.

Cami was only a few meters away from the house when she pulled out her phone. She had to call Niall.
