" I'm ready to go " Ash said while descending the stairs holding his teddy bear with his tiny hands .
"Okay love , let's go " I grabbed my keys and my purse then I closed the apartment's door , then I reached for his hand and opened the elevator's door.
" Where are we going ?" Ash asked swinging his teddy bear , while I pressed the button of the elevator .
"Let's make it a surprise " I smiled looking at his sparkled green eyes .
"No tell me , please please please please " he begged like kids , actually he is a kid .
" Fine , we are going to Steven's apartment " I chuckled at the way he begged , his brain is much older than his age .
" Yeah " he laughed , " I love Steven " he smiled .
I unlocked my car and seated him in the backseat , closing his seat belt to make sure he is safe and then I went to my driver seat .
" How long will it take to arrive at Steven ?" he asked after I started the engine .
" Just 10 minutes , love " I smiled , and started to drive .
Ash loves Steven so much , actually because Steven was the kindest man to him since his birth date , and he still is , besides Steven loves him too .
I'm not surprised why there is a father-son relationship between them , because Steven is so nice , I still remember the first day we started dating , he was gentle and he still is , but the reason we broke up is that we arent good together dating , but we still friends , good friends actually , he is more than my brother .
" We arrived , love " I announced , parking my car in the parking lot .
" yeah " he screamed , when the car was parked and I opened him the door , he started to run .
" Hey , wait " I yelled .
" Hurry up " he returned back , and held my hand and started to pull me inside the building .
After we arrived the right floor , we went outside the elevator and walked through the corridor , until we reached the apartment's door , then I pressed the button .
Few minutes later and someone started to open the door slowly so a dark shape appeared and I couldnt realize what it was at first , but when the door was totally opened I realized he was Steven's friend Jackson .
" Hey beautiful " he greeted with a smirk .
" Hey " I faked a smile , I hate him so much , I'm not judging him but he is such a dork .
" Hey , you little boy " he mocked a baby voice as he looked at Ash ..... Ash just smiled and held my hand tight , I can't blame him for being afraid , he is so scary .
" Who there Jackson ?" Steven's voice yelled .
" Your ex " Jackson sneered .
" Then back off " Steven finally appeared then he pushed Jackson away making space for me to enter , so I immediately entered , holding Ash's hand
" I'm out dude , later " Jackson said , smirking at me and then he left smacking the door making me jump .
" Chill out " Steven chuckled .
" I just hate him " I groaned , joining Steven on the trapeze .
" He look amazing " he smiled , looking at the small boy who was enjoying using his Ipad .
" You know , you're the only the person who make him forget his teddy bear in the car " I smoothly smiled .
" I'm hungry " I changed the subject , but I was sure he was extremely happy from what I said .
I left both of them playing with the Ipad and went to the fridge to grab some food , but it was empty , like a desert .
" Are you kidding me " I whispered to myself .
" I think we should make a visit to the grocer " I whooped with laughter , making my way back to them .
" I wanted you to figure it out " he teased making me laugh .
" we should go " I grabbed my purse and took Ash's hand .
" I'm ready to go " Steven announced holding his car keys .
" I 'm hungry " Ash spoke with childish pampered voice .
" We will bring food honey " Steven reassured .
" Are you happy now " I admonished .
" Dont blame me " he gleefully grimaced .
" Finally " I groaned when we arrived , Steven is the worst driver ever .
" I told you to drive " he teased , parking the car in the parking lot .
" I'm getting Ash " he volunteered .
So I grabbed my purse and waited for both of them at the grocer's entry , and when they joined me we entered .
" Ash stay close " I warned and he nodded , I know he is safe with Steven , but I dont wanna him be harmed .
" Let's start with Frozen meat " Steven suggested .
" I hate meat " Ask said , breaking Steven's grip .
"What did I say , Ash ?" I talked using serious tone .
" I wont walk off " He reassured , and I couldn't disagree .
" Dont worry , I'm watching him " Steven said .
" Okay " I smiled just to reassure him , but I was still worried .
Steven started to put all kind of purchases he wanted , I know he loves shopping actually he can be a good company in shopping for dresses .
" Hey is that enough with frozen chicken ?" he asked showing me the purchases in his trolley .
" I think yeah " I stepped closer to the trolley , then I started to check the stuff and when I was done I stepped back to check Ash , but he was gone .
" Where is Ash ?" I terrifyingly asked , my breath catches my throat when he disappeared .
" He was here a minute ago " Steven muttered
" I want my son " I collapsed , whirling around myself .
" Chill out , we will find " he said before he leave me standing and go to look for him , I cant just chill out while my son is gone , I can barely feel my feet .
" Ash , where are you? " I started to make my strides trying to find him , I felt everyone's eyes on me but I dont care , I'm looking for my son people !
" Ash , can you hear me " I yelled still crying .
When I lost hope , I went outside , he was nowhere inside , where is he ? I want my son back .
" Barbara , watch out " I heard Steven yelling but I didnt know what he was talking about .
Suddenly a man showed up holding Ash who was flinging this man , when I tried to run to him , another man grabbed my arms , and injected something in my neck and then I felt nothing more .
