After Luke wiped away my tears and brushed my hair back I then said," I am going to go lay down in my bed. You should go hang out with the boys again and if you want vist me late." He smiled a little and said," Okay, I will be back." He pecked my lips then took off. I made my way upstairs and curled up in my bed. I did not want to move for a thing, I did not want to leave the peace that surrounded me. A couple hours passed as I was completely and utterly along. I eventually heard my aunt come home, but she was not alone. I heard someone else walk in with her. In my mind I thought it was Luke , so I got up and walked down stairs. When I entered the Kitchen where my aunt was at and she was with a man in a suit with a brief case.
I walked up to her and said," Aunt T your home early?" which she was . She gave me and unsure smile than looked at the dude who nodded his head. She then said," You need to sit down before you here this!" I nodded my head and we all walked to the living room. I sat on one couch while my aunt and her 'friend' I guess sat in front of me. She had a wine glass in her hand , which is odd since I have never seen her drink once while I was here. She looked down than said," Violet, I knew this was going on , but I did no believe they would find him. The police after you were put in my arms went looking for your father. Neither of us believe we would find him, but they did just over a week ago. They are given you father two options, one serve jail time for leaving two minors alone , or fight for you . I am said to say he wants to fight for you . That means if he wins you are going back to California where he moved too, or if I win he goes to jail." Tears were forming in my eyes like I have done enough of that. I then said," Is that all.I think I want to go for a walk?" She shook her head no and said," There is one last thing i need to tell you , and that is that tomorrow after school he wants to see you. I have no right to deny him that , so sadly you have to go!" I nodded my head and said," I will be back later!"
I went outside and started to run. I do not care where anywhere. I ran passed Michael's open garage with all the boys inside and I just kept running. Even when they called my name I kept running. I did not care where I was going , but I did not want to stop. As the sky darken and the cold breeze set in I did not stop until I reached the best spot. My brothers grave. It was nine miles away , so I knew I made a distance. I have not visited since the funeral. I sat down next to it and started to sob." Billy, I really wish you were here. It seemed you were the only steady thing in my life until you exploded. Now dad wants to buy his way through jail by getting me back and I have drama between boys still.," I just stop talking and just sobbed because honestly that is all I needed to do.
I ended up falling asleep there for an hour tops. I then started my walk home , being to tired to run again. About not even half way there I felt like stopping and giving up. That was when my cell phone ringed. I picked it and said," Hello?" I heard then Ashton speak up," Hey, where are you?" I looked around and saw a street sign and said," North of ridge wood. Why?" He started telling someone else that and said," We though you might need a lift , so stay there we will be there in a minute or two."I said fine then hanged up. Eventually I saw Michael's car pull up by the curb. I smiled than got in the back with Luke next to me and Calum next to him. I laid my head on Luke's shoulder and he wrapped his arm around me. Calum on our way home than asked," Why did you take off out of your house earlier!" I knew it was better to get it out so I said," The police found my dad and he has an option go to jail or fight for me. He choose to fight for me and the thing is if he wins I have to move to California with him , but if he loses he goes to jail. Plus he wants to see me after school tomorrow." The whole car was silent and Michael spoke up saying,"They are going to let that man have custody of you again even after he abandon you the last time." I shook my head and said," I know , the thing is I do not want to go see him , let alone live with him again . especially if it means leaving my only friends behind."
The rest of the ride was silent and soon enough the got me back at my house. Luke walked me to my door and he said," If you want I can go with you tomorrow?" I smiled and said," Thanks that would help a lot!" He leaned in and gave me a kiss and said," Goodnight, and remember if you need me just call." I smiled and said," Goodnight!" as I entered my house.I got to my room and got ready for bed. Unsure for the following weeks ahead. My eyes closed tight as they were getting heavy by the weekends fights. Tonight however I did not have good dreams more like nightmares strapped to my brain.
