Recovery

Four years ago, at seventeen years old, Katrina Burke was madly in love. Until her relationship with eighteen year old Justin Bieber became abusive. Not even a year later, at eighteen years old, Katrina ran. At first she'd thought it was a good idea, but when she found out she was pregnant with Justin's child, her life became even more troubled and twisted. Now, at twenty-one, Katrina's life is good. She has a great job, a nice place to stay, and a beautiful three year old daughter named Camryn. Everything is perfect until a certain someone comes into her life again, ready to show her how much he's changed.

4. Chapter 3

After the talk Justin and I had in the elevator I returned to my desk as he had a meeting with Greg about the way the company markets. It felt good to actually get away from him. It felt like I could almost…breathe again. 

I actually got a little work done but I still couldn't get the images out my mind of what happened a few years ago. Even though I did recover it took time. Sometimes I would have these horrible nightmares that I would wake up in a pool of sweat and my heart beating entirely too fast. 

I hope they wouldn't start again. I didn't want to scare Camryn. And what if he finds out about her and this nice guy appearance goes way in a heart beat and he abuses me again?  Oh and what if he abuses Camryn? I will never let him touch my- 

"Err Kat?" I heard someone say from behind me making me flinch. 

"Y-Yes?" I stuttered trying to fix my heartbeat to a normal consistency as I turned around, only to meet Justin's intense brown eyes. 

"Greg said you would show me the company computer program." Justin stated calmly but he's eyes looked worried as hell. 

I shut my eyes for a second and sighed trying to not be so shucked up. 

"Right." I whispered before getting a vacant office chair for Justin to sit in. "Here. This might take a while." I stated not meeting is eyes scared to before sitting back down in my seat. 

------ 

We were halfway into the tutorial process when Justin asked something that made me froze. 

"Is she yours?" He asked softly, catching me by surprise. I gulped and forced my eyes to follow where his finger was. Which was on my framed picture of Camryn on her third birthday. She had a crown on and her pink princess dress. 

"Yes." I said with no emotion. We were not friends and here at work I made sure I was strictly business with everyone no matter how close I was to them. 

"Oh." He said simply with a hint of sadness in his voice. "She's adorable. How old is she?"

I cleared my throat awkwardly before replying. 
"We should be focusing on the company's website." I said before starting to explain the website again. 

But Justin didn't take his eyes off the photo of Camryn which made me nervous…indescribably nervous. 

Breaking us both from our thoughts my phone rang. I jumped a little not expecting the ringtone to play. 

I quickly grabbed it and noticed it's from Camryn's school. I rolled my eyes and scoffed. This isn't the first time she's bit another child, hit the teacher, or threw a temper tantrum just for the fun out it. 

"Hello?" I called into the phone. 

"Ah yes, is this Miss Katrina Burke?" 

"It sure is." 

"Hi it's Camryn's teacher. I would just like to inform you she was complaining her stomach hurt after lunch and she vomited." 

"Oh ok. I'll be there in a few minutes." 

After that I hung up. I started to gather all of my things I would need to work from home quickly. 

"Whoa, what's going on?" Justin asked surprised by my actions. 

"Camryn is sick and I have to pick her up from school." I sighed not even thinking about what I'm saying. 

"Camryn? Is that her name?" Justin asked softly. 

"Yes Justin." I said trying to hide the irritation in my voice. 

I finally got everything packed up and I was about to walk into Greg's office to let him know. 

"Kat I would like to come with you." Justin said politely stoping me in my tracks. I spun on my heels to face him. 

"Justin I'm not sure if that would be appropriate-" I started. 

"J-Just to help…of course." He interrupted while scratching the back of his neck. 

"I've been raising her for a while now I think I can handle it." I said as politely as I could before walking into Greg's office to let him know I was leaving. 

Of course Greg understood because he has five kids of his own. That's part of the reason why he understands my abilities as a single mom. And I'm blessed for that. 

Stepping out of his office I saw Justin sitting at my desk with his hands locked together in his lap. 

"Kat, I think you've known me long enough to know I'm a very stubborn man." Justin stated. He was right he was very head strong. Camryn got it from him. "Therefore it will be very hard to stop me from coming with you to picked up your child." 

I rolled my eyes in exasperation. 

"Look Justin, I don't have time for this. I have to go pick up my baby and take car of her. So you do whatever the hell you want." I said before making my way to my car with Justin hot on my tail. 

Pulling up to Camryn's school, I acted as of Justin wasn't with me. It seemed easier than to try to spark conversation with him. 

I quickly got out the car and made a b line to the school. I heard a car door slam and a sigh in the background until Justin jogged up to me. 

"Ms. Burke, Please come in!" The nurse said leading me…or us into her office. 

I saw Camryn laying on a cot with her eyes closed. She had a damp cloth on her head and a blanket around her little legs. I smiled to see her so peaceful. I walked over to her caressing her cheek then kissing it. 

"She just had a little stomach ache. I don't think she will need to go to the doctor or hospital. Her teacher just wanted her to rest and be comfortable for today." The nurse explained with a happy smile. 

"Thank you." I smiled politely back at her. Then focused my eyes back on Camryn who was squirming and blinking her eyes open. 

"Mommy." She whined almost as if she was about to cry. She sat up from the cot. She looked too cute. Her brown curls all over her face, her eyes squinted, and her arms out. 

"I'm right here baby." I chuckled lightly as I swooped her up in my arms. 

She looked around the room until her eyes stayed on something. Camryn wasn't much of a starer so I turned to see what she was looking at. 

Justin was standing there with a blank expression on his face and he didn't take his eyes off Camryn. 

I guess the nurse sensed an awkward tension because she said "I'll give you guys a minute." Before quickly walking out the room. 

I glanced of at the nurse sending her a quick thankful smile before looking back at Justin. His hand currently over his mouth. 

"Justin, this is Camryn." I sighed putting her down. His actions were scaring me to death. Did he figure it out? Is he mad? 

Camryn quickly grabbed my hand and shoved her four little fingers in her mouth. She tended to do that when she was nervous. 

"And Camryn this is Justin." I told her. Making her look up at me then back at him. 

His eyes never leaving hers.
