17. Daddy is home!
Lily screamed with joy to see her father’s face. She had missed him very much. She hugged him tightly. She whispered in his ear, “We need to talk. Alexa’s gone.” Her father backed away and looked at her. Lily put her finger to her lips. She walked to her room. Shortly after, her father entered and sat on Alexa’s old bed.
“Mommy sent Alexa to an orphanage because she got in a fight. She wanted to do away with all of us but you came home early. What happened?”
“Lily! Stop making these fantasies. Where is Alexa!”
“Truly she is at the orphanage. You… You can… here.” she grabbed Ginger and gave her to her father. “Ginger, tell him!”
Ginger explained what happened to the father. Even the part about the mysterious letters from the odd man. That made there dad angry. He got up and marched right to his wife.
“Cynthia! I come home from war to find out you sent my daughter to an orphanage and some man is sending you letters! Go live with him! I taking the girls and we are getting divorced!”
Lily smiled, that was exactly what they needed.
Sorry this is so short! I am almost done with the story!
