10. Chapter 10
Liam and I sat in the chairs with one police officer sitting in front of us at the table. He said that Elliot was under arrest and he had a restraining order placed. I sighed in relief and just looked at Liam for a few seconds. I got up from my seat followed by Liam who was much more relieved that Elliot was in prison. As we walked silently out the door, Liam looked down and grabbed my hand. The walk back to the car was silent,as well as the drive. Liam finally broke the silence as he always does and asked," are you alright Anne?"
"Yeah I'm fine."
"You can talk to me if you need to. I'm here" he said as he placed his hand on my thigh.
"I know Liam I'm just relieved and a bit unhappy at the same time about the whole situation."
"Anne you did nothing to deserve what he has done to you in the past. It was for the better. Why are you unhappy?"
"Well my whole thing is, that, at one point in my life I loved Elliot and wanted to be with him all the time. And if you love someone then you don't want them to be out of your life or for them to be in trouble. I feel this way with Elliot and I really don't understand it at all."
"I understand totally Anne but think back on all the horrible things he's done to you. You deserve better and he never loved you, or he wouldn't have done that."
I agreed totally with Liam and it wasn't going to be easy watching Elliot go to prison. I still felt for him but it was a dangerous feeling. Elliot was a threat to my name and I didn't want him to be part of anything but my past.
