The next day I went to Texas.
"Dallas" my grandma whispered surprised to see me. She hadn't seen me since I ran away and changed my name. "Hi grandma" I smiled carefully, "it's me." A tear escaped from her eye as she grabbed my hand, "I've missed you so much." "I've missed you too grandma" I said as I sat down at the hospital bed. "And my name is Cameron Smith now" I mumbled, "but don't mind. I just wanted you to know." "Your dad is very sorry about what happened" she said. I shrugged, "I don't think so." "He told me so" she smiled looking into my eyes. She was old. "How are you doing?" I asked, changing the subject. My grandma sighed because of me changing the subject. "I'm okay" she said, "I've been better." I smiled at her. An hour later I had said goodbye to her and was ready for her to die soon. The next morning the hospital called my dad and told him that she had stopped breathing. He started crying and I let a few tears roll down my cheeks.
I asked my boss, over the phone, if I could stay two more days just till the funeral and he said I could but then I had to do two night shifts when I got back. I said that it was okay. He also added that Justin had asked a lot about when I got home and that he thought Justin had a crush on me. I laughed and told him that he probably had and then I thanked him and hung up. "So I can stay a couple more days till the funeral is done" I told my dad. "There won't be a funeral" he looked at me, "we can't afford it.. Well I can't afford it." "I can help.. It's the only family I had" I said. He sighed and looked at me, "Dallas-" "Cameron" I exclaimed, "is it that hard?!" "Cameron" he said, "I am your family." "Not anymore you're not" I said, "not after what you did!" "I'm sorry for what I did it was wrong and I don't want you to be mad at me" he explained. "I'm tired of your explanations.. It's all bullshit and I know you aren't sorry at all.. And don't apologize to me.. You can apologize to mom and that innocent woman.. What you did is unforgivable!" I exclaimed and looked at him. I was disgusted by him. "I'm sorry Cameron but I can't afford a funeral for grandma we have to figure something out" he explained, "I'm not asking for your forgiveness.. All I'm asking for is that we can get through grandmas memorial together without you ripping my head off." I sighed. Maybe we could get through this. Just these two days. "Okay but we'll just say goodbye to her then and then I'm going home" I said. "Okay" he said.
The day after I went home and called my boss and told him that I would be working the day after that. He said okay. I wanted to see Justin so badly. I wanted him to make me feel okay again. He was the only person that could do that. He could make me so sad and he could make me so happy. I went to bed after eating a pizza.
The next day I went to work and I had to do the night shift. "McCann has been asking for you" my boss said at lunch. "Of cause he has but I did tell him that I would be back" I chuckled. "Well court is in a month so get ready" he smiled, "we might get lucky." "I know but I just have this bad feeling" I said and looked down. I suddenly doubted on everything he told me. If it really was true.
"Goodnight Smith see you tomorrow" my boss smiled and walked away. I asked for Justin because I had to "make sure" everything was as it should be when we went to court, which was a lie. I had to see him. I hadn't seen him for four days almost.
I unlocked his handcuffs and put them on the table. The second I did that he wrapped his arms around me and pulled me into a hug. I hugged him back. "I've missed you" he mumbled into my neck before kissing it making me go all weak. "I've missed you too Jus" I mumbled back. We pulled away and he gently placed his lips on mine holding my neck. I melted inside. "So how'd go?" he asked. "Not good" I said, "well I said goodbye to my grandma but we didn't have a funeral.. Not even a memorial.. She died by the way.. But my dad's still an asshole.. And I'm never going to forgive him for what he did.." "I'm so sorry I wish I could help" he said and stroked my cheek. "You're already helping much more than you are aware of" I smiled, "I'm okay." "I know.. But it must be hard anyway or it is hard!" he said. I nodded, "it is though.. My dad and grandma kept calling me Dallas and I kept telling them that I changed my name and then I told my dad that I did it for a reason." "Well don't get mad at your grandma" he chuckled, "but your dad sounds like someone you wouldn't wanna mess with." "Well he's harmless I think.. He's afraid of everything. I didn't know he was cable of killing someone just to get money" I said and sat down. "I'm just checking now" I said, "everything thing you told me about that night is true right? Not that I'm doubting it's just my boss that wanna be sure because court's in a month." "Yeah it is" he smiled and kissed me, "I don't know why I would lie.." "Maybe to get out" I said. "Yeah but you know what I mean" he said kind a frustrated. I laughed, "of cause I do Jus." Actually meanwhile I was in Texas I had gotten a couch in my office.
Justin placed my gently on the couch kissing my neck. "You wanna do this?" he asked. I giggled and nodded, "yep I've waited four days!" He smiled and kissed my again.
