Today is the day I have to be hammered with thousands of questions for Dylan's crime, I hope I'm dressed okay. I'm wearing a navy blue medium length dress with a blue jean jacket and some caramel color boots that go up to my knee. I take a deep breath and go downstairs where my mom dressed nicely, following my father, he's wearing a black suit and tie.
"Ready?" My mom grabs my shoulders.
I nod and we head out to my dad's car. It's a little nippy, wish I would've dressed more appropriately.
Don't get me wrong I'm a bit nervous about this whole thing, I mean everyone in that court is going to be watching me talk about what happened. My stomach got a little twisted.
We get to court house and I didn't think it would be this big of a building. The top of the building was round shaped and it had City Hall in big, black letters and there's a really tall, white clock tower right behind it.
When I walked in, I saw Penelope and Violet in dresses and they run up to me as soon as I walked in.
"What are you guys doing here?" I smiled.
Emma came on the side of Penelope not even noticing that I'm right here.
"We came to support you," Penelope smiled. "All of us." She nudges Emma and she gave me a fake smile. I guess she's still mad at me.
"Including." Violet held out her hands out to the side, revealing Roy and Caleb coming out of the side.
Caleb gives me a tight hug.
"You came?" I hugged back, I'm probably squeezing the life out of Caleb right now. But he's warm and he's dressed so nicely with the plaid shirt and jeans.
"Of course." Caleb's head rested on my head then we pulled away when my mom came.
"Let's go." My mom smiles at my friends.
We go inside the courtroom and I see Detective James.
"Hello Mary." James shakes my hand. "We require that the people who testify to sit right here." He shows me the seats that are all the way in the back.
My mom and dad's arm intertwine with mine until we sit down and Penelope, Emma, and Violet comes sit right in front of us. The judge comes in and Roy comes, sits right next to me and Caleb sits on the other side of me next to my mother
"I don't think you can sit here." I whisper to Roy. Caleb starts holding my hand and he has a pretty tight grip on them.
"Don't worry. I told them I was your cousin." He smiles.
The judge slams the hammer and the whole courtroom goes silent. The judge is an older lady that was about in her fifties and she has the most beautiful caramel brown hair, I'm jealous of it. A police officers brings Dylan who still in his school uniform and in handcuffs, he looks really rough. His hair is all messed up and he has really dark circles all around his eyes. Looks like he was having it rough where he was. The judge said I believe is was the case code or number.
"In the matter of Dylan Peters. Present in the courtroom are the defendant and his attorney, the deputy prosecutor, investigator, and the probation officer." The judge said loud enough so everyone can hear.
"I call Mary Fall up to the stand." One of the attorneys called, I walk up there with eyes on me even Emma's. I sit in the witness stand and Dylan is smirking at me, making me even more nervous.
An officer made me put my hand on the bible and I made direct contact with him. He recited the oath like an auctioneer. I recognize the oath from all the court shows that I watched during the summer, so you can say that I'm pretty prepared. Not really.
"I do." I said loud enough everyone can hear, I sit up straight and a lawyer comes to the stand. My stomach decides to go on a rollercoaster ride and it made me want to throw up.
"So Ms. Fall did Mr. Peters ever hurt you in any sort of way?" I could feel my heart racing and my face getting pretty pale. I knew I should've taken my medicine.
I licked my lips. Dylan puts his hands that were intertwine on the table.
"Yes" I see Violet whisper something into Penelope's ear and she's pointing at Dylan. He lean back in his chair and he looks pissed that I said that but it was the truth. Emma starts looking kinda upset. I really just want to hug her right now even if she hates me I still want to be there for her.
"Did he ever try to use any weapon on you?"
Emma left the courtroom and Penelope followed her. Nobody noticed but me and Violet.
"That will be all Ms. Fall." The officer escorts me out of the witness stand and to where my parents are sitting. My mom starts hugging me, I just closed my eyes and hope that this trial will end soon. "I call Caleb Wylde to the stand." My eyes widened. What does he have to do with this case? I mean he found me but I don't see how he knows anything that could help them.
Caleb goes up there and they recite the oath to him like they did with me. My legs are shaking uncontrollably and I'm feeling quaky. He runs his fingers through his hair and looks at the attorney. Why must he be so hot, especially right now?
"Do you know the victim in any way?" He smiles, looks at me and I blush a dark shade of red.
"School." He said.
"How did you find the victim?"
"I was walking on the beach and I hear screaming so I called the police." Caleb explains.
"Do you know where the victim was being held at?"
"At an old warehouse right next to Georgia Town's beach." He responds.
We have a warehouse? I don't really know what a warehouse is and I didn't know that we had one.
The lawyer starts to look in a manila folder and Caleb is smiling at me right now which makes me blush like crazy.
"That would be all, Mr. Wylde." The police escort him out the witness stand and over to my seat.
After the trial was over, I'm the first one to leave the courtroom, following my parents and Caleb. Emma comes out of the bathroom with Penelope, her eyes are really puffy and red. Seeing Emma cry breaks my heart into millions of pieces honestly. She sniffs and hugs me, Penelope is holding her hand against her chest and smiling. Does this mean she forgives me?
Emma breaks out of my grip and she tries to smile through the tears.
"I'm sorry about everything. Will you be my friend again?" She holds my shoulders. Penelope looks at me with a nod and smile. I guess she explained everything to her.
"No, I'll be your best friend." Me and Emma hug again. Everyone 'aws' even Roy and Caleb.
I walk out of the court house with Emma's arm intertwined with mine, like the good old days. We walk like this to my parent's car and she hugs me goodbye.
I get in the car and my parents are holding hands. I really want a relationship like that, even if I'm fifty I still want someone to still hold hands with me.
My dad stops at Taco Bell to get something to eat and I'm not a big fan of Taco Bell but I'm like starving. The only thing that I would actually eat over here is the Mexican pizza. I get myself a Baja Blast freeze with a Mexican pizza while my parents get chalupas. I heard those things will mess your stomach up and I don't want to find out if that's true.
We get home and plop myself on the couch with my food, I turn some Hello Kitty cartoons and ate my pizza in peace.
