Keeping My Distance

Lalvia Monroe is a girl that has been badly bullied by some people at school, she self-harms and cry's her self to sleep every night. She has also, been getting weird dreams and visions by her grandmother that has passed away five years ago. She has been getting warnings by her grandmother that she needs to leave but, when a new man enters her life… she's not so sure she wants to leave.


4. The surprised visit

                                                         Richard's POV. (Lalvia's dad)

                                                            (Earlier today)

Brady. I have a feeling the guy is once again drunk. I love the guy and all-- I mean, he's my best friend but, he drinks way to much. 

                   "Hello?" I said answering the phone. There was no reply… just breathing. Well, that is weird, it might just be Brady. "Brady?" I asked.

                  "Hey, Richard," I froze. Tha-that can't be… I thought he was in prison. "Just keep in mind, do what I say or your little girl is…dead," he stated.


 I decided to ignore it, I mean Lalvia is with Conner, right? I'm also, driving and half way to Brady's house. Maybe that wasn't really 'him,' I mean it can't be.


I tried knocking on the door but nothing. "Brady!" I screamed. I was hoping he was like a sleep or something. "Brady!" I screamed again.

          The door opened and I walked straight in but, didn't see Brady anywhere. I walked around and saw a big mess through out the whole living room. The lamp was broken, the TV is now laying on the floor and the window was smashed to pieces. 

          "Nice to see you again, Richard," I turned around and immanently wished I didn't. 

           "Walter," I said as I was taking a deep breath.

           "Surprise," He said smiling.


                               Lalvia's POV.

I started laughing as I was in the car with Conner. "So, she literally messed up your car?" I asked choking on my laughter.

             "Hey, that's not funny it took me forever to fix," He said still smiling. "What about you? Do you have a boyfriend or a crazy ex like me?" He asked laughing. He has the cutest laugh, I thought. No, no I need to snap out of it.

            "More like a crazy ex," I stated looking down. "I was in love with him though but, of course he ruined everything… he always did."

           He looked over at me and smiled. "If you don't mind me asking…What did he do?" He asked.

          "He cheated on me. So, I broke up with him but, right after… he ended up in prison," I said staring out the window trying my best not to cry. "From murder," I chocked as the tears started flowing from my face. 

         "Oh, wow… I am so sorry, I shouldn't of asked that," He said apologetically. He paused. "Wh-what was his name?"

         What was up with him asking me all these questions? "Er, his name was Walter," I replied.
