21. Vivian

Part of me wanted to grab the wheel, because Detective Boyd was driving too slow. I glanced at his partner; she had her head bent and was reading something. Maybe a map, but I couldn't really see. When she turned to look at me, I averted her gaze.

“Can I help you?” she asked, a little too rudely.

“I just wanted to know if you were looking at a map,” I said, narrowing my eyes slightly. “But if you aren't, never mind then. Hey, Remy?”

I watched Detective Harlow's eyes spark in annoyance and smirked.

“What is it?” he answered.

“Do you know where you're going?”

I tried to calm my sudden anxiety as the real weight of what we were doing finally hit me. We were going to get Julia. We were going to bring her home, then we would make sure she was safe.

We passed street, buildings, houses. All of them were a blur to me. All I could see was her face, her violet eye bright and happy. I just wanted to hold her again, and soon I would be able to.

A sudden slam on the dashboard made me jump. Leaning over the middle console, I looked at Remy. “What's wrong?”

“Fuck,” he hissed. “I know this place. We've got to get Julia out of there.”

I looked out the window. We were parked in front of small, white two-story house with a broken fence and shutters. It looked like no one lived in it, or hadn't in a long time.

“Jade,” he said softly, looking at his partner. “call for backup. Vivian, stay here. I'll go in. If I don't come out-”

“You have to,” Jade said, her voice tight. “Just shut up and go. I'll keep her safe and come get you if I need to.”

Detective Boyd slammed the door and crept up to the old house, gun drawn. It wouldn't be until hours later that I would understand everything.
