17. ~Chapter 16~

~~I must have fallen asleep because the next thing i know, im waking up to Sophia's cries. She knows a few words now that i taught her, like no, yes, and my name of course, Julia. She pronounces it 'ooo-lee'. Its only cute when she does it. I also taught her mommy and daddy. Daddy so if my dad ever returns, she will already know what to call him. Mommy so she will remember our mom. She was only about 10 months old when the earthquake hit. I took the undamaged photo albums with me so when shes a little older i can show her pictures of our parents so she can in a way know who they were. I cradle her in my arms hushing her. I know this cry. She only wants to be held. My mom taught me how to listen to her cries and know what she wants. I guess every mother does this or it would probably get very hard to take care of a baby. Its a good thing Sophia is starting to crawl already because she is starting to get heavy. Only after ive been holding her for a while. I sit down on the couch with her in my arms speaking softly to her. I kiss her forehead when shes asleep and put her in her crib. My phone starts to ring so i take it out of my pocket and look at caller id. My boss.
"Hello?" I say.
"Hi Julia, how are you?" Kevin asks.
"Im fine, how are you?" I ask wondering why my boss is calling me when im off.
"Could you come down to work? There is someone here to see you" he says.
"Who?" I ask.
"His name is Eric, do you know him he says hes you-" i cant hear the rest as i drop the phone.
"Julia? Julia! Hello?" I hear muffled sounds coming from the phone.
I run and grab Sophia. I put her in the carrier in the car, grab my phone from the house, as well as her bag, and mine. I start the car and rush to my workplace. I park and get Sophia out. I walk calmly inside holding her close to me. A man turns around with a paper in his hands and walks over to me. It is him.
"Dad" i say almost in tears.
He smiles and hugs me tightly like he will never let go. When he finally does he looks at Sophia.
"Is this?-" he doesnt even have to finish before i nod my head and put her in his arms. He looks down at her and tears fill his eyes.
I wanted to interrogate him as to where he has been but i dont think this is the right time or place. I take the paper and see it is my note. He must have been to the treehouse. That is where i left it, knowing where he would look seeing the house crushed.
She looks at him with her big brown eyes. She got moms eyes. I have my dads, thats why i have green.
"Who are you staying with?" He asks as we walk out of McDonalds.
"You'll see, how did you get here?" I ask.
"I drove" he says.
"Okay then follow me" i say and put Sophia in the car and get in the drivers seat.
I see him get in his car. I remember that car. I remember watching him drive out of the driveway of our house. He was going to the store. But he never returned. I put the car in reverse and pull out of the parking space. I put it in drive and and drive to my apartment. I constantly check the rearview mirror to make sure he didnt get stuck behind. I park outside my apartment and get out with Sophia. I see someone looking out the window at Zachs house. Its not Zach. Its Austin. What is he doing? Maybe hes waiting for someone and thought it was them when i shut the car doors. I wave a little when i realize im still holding Sophia. I run inside. He saw her. That's what he was looking at. My dad follows.
"Is that your boyfriend?" He asks.
"Austin? No" I brush it off.
"Oh good, i thought i would have to beat him up" he said.
"Dad..." i whined.
"Okay okay" he said.
"So.. what happened to you dad?" I asked.
He sighed.
"Well... you know i was going to the store. On my way there a police officer pulled me over. Then arrested me after accusing me of commiting murder... about a week ago, they caught the real guy and apologized and let me go" he said.
"Why didn't they call mom?" I asked.
"I don't know, maybe i gave them the wrong number but whoever i called, it wasn't your mother" he said.
"Oh... well i'm glad your are here now!" I say.
"Me too... well you shouldn't have to stay here... this place is gross" he says.
"It's the only place I can afford." i said.
"Well your little window friend lives in a house, you should too, come on" he says.
I live in the apartments next to Zach's house.
"Where?" I ask.
"Lets look for a house" he says.
"Dad, i cant afford that, and you don't have a job" i said.
"I have money saved, and i got a job" he said.
"Really?" I asked.
"I already got the house" he says.
"You did?" I ask.
"Yes!" He says excitedly.
"I wanna see it!!" I say excited.
"Well lets go" he says.
We got Sophia in the carrier and took my car. I sat in the passenger seat since i didn't know where to go. He drove up to a pretty big house. I got out as he got Sophia.
"Do you have furniture?" I ask.
"Some, but you should take your stuff from your room, as well as Sophia's stuff" he says.
"Okay" i said.
I let myself tour the house. It seems so much like our old one. He has a lot of pictures of my mom everywhere. He really loved her. Sophia reminds me of her and i can tell she reminds him of her too. I walk outside and see a familiar face.
"Alex!" I yell.
He turns and faces me.
"Hey Julia!" He said walking over.
"What are you doing here?" I ask.
"I should be asking you that" he said.
"I'm moving here, my dad bought the house" i said.
"Oh.." he says and grins, "i think you'll like your new neighbor."
"Wait. Who's my-" i stop talking and groan.
Austin is my new neighbor.
