"Do you need any help?" Serena asks seeing me struggle with changing Kristen as she is wiggling around a lot. "That'd be great." I reply and she chuckles, and we manage to change her in a matter of 5 minutes together. "I feel like we haven't known each other at all." Serena suddenly says, picking Kristen up and bouncing her in her arms and I shrug. "People change, I had 3 years to do it. " I reply packing the baby bag and Serena looks me right in the eyes, before suddenly cracking a small smile.
"Why won't you leave your husband?" She questions and I shrug my shoulders. "I have nowhere to go, my mom's house is too small to fit me and the baby, I don't work ever since I've given birth because I am looking after the baby, I don't know how to do anything seriously. I'd be homeless if I leave Daniel. He'd probably manage to take Kristen away from me in the end too. " I explain and she hums. "He sounds terrible, honestly." She mumbles and I shake my head. "No he is not that bad, really. He just really doesn't like letting go of what's his? He is a good father and husband sometimes his anger gets the best of him though." I try defending him, blaming myself for doing so straight away. He hits you Diana, and he won't stop any time soon either.
We hear a knock on the door and Allan's head pops in a second later. "Your phone has been ringing non stop." He states and I wince, knowing who it is and how mad he is going to be. "We should really head home."I say making sure I have everything packed. "I'll drive you." Allan says going downstairs, before I can even manage to say no.

"Thanks." I say to Allan and he nods his head, with his eyes furrowed. "I still don't know why I had to park on the corner away from your house. "He states and I smile slightly, rubbing Kristen's back a bit to make sure she stays asleep. "I don't want him finding out." I tell him and get out of the car quickly. When I walk by his side of the car ready to head home he suddenly opens his door. I turn back and giggle when I see him looking at me with hopeful eyes. "You can call me tomorrow. Daniel is working all day, so we might have a chance to hang out." I tell him and he grins widely.
I rush home, quickly to get there as soon as possible and as soon as I close the door I can just feel how pissed my husband is. "I'll go put her to bed." I mumble and he nods his head. I rush upstairs leaving the bag beside the little cupboard with Kristen's clothes, and put her to her crib tucking her in under the duvet.
I go downstairs quietly, and as soon as my feet hit the floor, I get a hard smack to my right cheek making me gasp loudly. "Who the hell were you with?" Daniel roars and I flinch away from him. "We went out with my friend." I mumble and get a smack to my face again as a response. "Lies. You got picked up by someone on a car. I am assuming it was not your mother. From what I know you haven't kept contact with anyone else but her." He says and I look at him. "It was my old school friend. She came back to town yesterday, and found out that I have a daughter and family now, she wanted to see me, so we went out together today." I lied and he looks me right in the eyes.
"If I'll find out you're lying." He threatens, and I just nod my head.
