Adonis ~It’s been three days. Three days since I went to the police station and gave them the recording I had, filing a report against dad for holding mom hostage. They accepted it and opened the case but said they’d have to investigate it further before taking actions. I was loosing patience as the day went by, here I am hunched against the desk, staring at my laptop.“Sir.” Noah’s voice boomed in the office, I sat up to see him standing right in front of the table.“It’s late and I should head home now.” He says and I nodded.“How about you, sir? I don’t think it’s quite okay for you to spend the night here. You should go home and rest.” He tells me but I wasn’t willing to listen. I need work to distract myself from everything going wrong In my life. I legit thought handing the recording of father saying he’d rather kill mom would be enough to take him into custody the next day perhaps but it’s been three whole days! Three days of me waiting for the result of their investigation.

We couldn’t celebrate fully since mom was still in the hospital, Penelope still hasn’t been caught and Lola hasn’t healed. She still has a cast on and still uses her crutches.We all sat outside here eating and talking until Chloe felt slee
Lola~Eight months after…"We don’t have all day, Lola. Come on.” Adonis yelled impatiently. I grabbed my phone and walked out of the room. It’s not like anyone told him to get dressed an hour before the said time an now he’s taking it out on me.“You can’t rush perfection, Adonis.” I yelled back. My heels clicking against the marble floor. Adonis was pacing around the living room, talking on the phone with someone I presume to be Liam. A smile made it’s way to my lips as I took a ground look of him. He was dressed in a grey suit, his hair had grown out longer and he tied it into a ponytail with few strands falling to his forehead. I watched as he gently picked up the sculpture sitting pretty on the shelf even as he spoke. He seemed to notice my presence and immediately turned to look at me.A warm smile embracing his lips as his eyes slowly raked me. “I’ll be there soon with her.” He says and cut the call, walking closer to me with a hint of mischief in his eyes.“Are you ready?” I as
