~Elisa~"Alex. Alex, please just wait!" I said, running after him. After seeing Flynn and I together in the elevator, he had stormed off in another car in anger, leaving me to try and catch up with him and probably explain what he probably thought he saw in there."Alex Alex," I had finally managed to grab hold of him in our living room. "Alex, let me explain," I told him breathlessly."No need. I already saw everything."I shook my head. "Alex, no. Listen, it's not what you think. Look, Flynn was dying in there. I was only trying to save him."He scoffed. "You sound funny, you know that? He was dying?" A bitter chuckle escaped his lips. "Very funny."I frowned. "No, it's not. You probably think I'm lying, don't you?"He managed to look me in the eye. "You told me you didn't love him anymore. You told me you wanted to get back at him for what he did to you!""And I do! Okay, I do want to get back at him for what he did to me! But at what expense?
~Elisa~"Ava darling, how many more minutes do you need!?" With a cup of ice cream in my hand, I asked Ava who was busy on the swing excitedly."Ten more minutes, mom! Sure you don't wanna join me!?""No thanks, I'm okay here." I said, busy with my chocolate ice cream. I had decided to take a break and probably spend some more time with Ava and here we were. In a park."Ava?""Right here, mommy, I'm done." She had appeared right in front of me, trying to fix up her gloves and her cap."Here, Let me help you." I handed over to her my ice cream and scooted low to help her fix her gloves and her cap properly."Ugh, this tastes horrible. God I've always hated chocolate ice creams." She said handing me back my cup of ice cream. "Why didn't you get vanilla for me?" She asked with a frown. "Well, I didn't know you'd like one. You know it's pretty cold around here.""Oh and you're the one who's not gonna catch a cold? Why is that?""Because I'm an adult."''Ugh. Why do adults get to do everyt
~Elisa~"Lisa, what did you do?!" my Aunt asked me as I was about to step out for work this morning."Aunt, I told you. I really wanted him to spend a day or two in jail. Too bad all he got was just a restraining order.""Lisa, you framed him. For sexual assault. If he wasn't a Roberts, do you know you would have been putting him in so much trouble?''"Well, I don't care. At least he's out of my skin. For now.""Lisa, you---""Lisa?""Alex?"Without saying another word, I walked up to him and wrapped my arms around him. "Hey, I'm sorry, I've been MIA these past few days, Lisa, I wish I would have been there. To protect you from him."I smiled, running my hands through his hair. "It's okay. I took care of everything. Dinner later? I think I've got lesser schedules today. And Ava's going to be so excited you're back.""Are you asking me on a date, Mrs lance?""Well, if that's what you want to call it, a date it is." I pressed a kis
~Elisa~Flynn.Before I could stand up, Alex stood up to face him. "The hell you doing here man? I'm talking to you man."Flynn didn't reply him. Rather his gaze swept from Ava's to mine and then to Ava's again. He moved past Alex and scooted low before Ava. It was as if I was frozen on the spot. I couldn't move neither could I do anything to stop him."Nice to see you too, Ava." He took Ava's outstretched hand."Doppelganger, really?""Yeah because I saw you one time on TV and I felt you were familiar. The next morning when I looked up to my reflection while brushing my teeth, I realized that we had the same colors of eyes. And your nose kinda looked like mine too," She chuckled, pinching his nose. "I've always wanted to meet you someday in person until I saw you outside the park that day but mommy wouldn't even let me speak to you. She was so much in a hurry to get home."Shit."Tell me, is your name Flynn? Mommy keeps talking about a certain Flynn
~Flynn~I was talking to one of my men, Sam, when I caught someone peeping from the door."Hold on a sec," I told Sam. Damn, she was good at spying. "Ava, you know I can see you right?"Caught, she had no choice but to come out of hiding. "Fine, you caught me.""You were supposed to leave with your mommy, why are you still here!?" I told her. What if Lisa gets home now and realizes that Ava wasn't even in the car with them? Just then my phone started ringing."Great. It's your mom," I scrolled on the answer button and lifted the phone to my ear. "Baby?""Flynn, it's Ava!" Her voice was shaky and teary. "I think she's gone missing again! Flynn, I don't know what I'd do anymore! Flynn, Ava---""She's here.""What?" Her tone was laced with disbelief. "She's here, baby, you don't have to worry anymore.""She went back? She snuck off the car without me or Kara knowing? I'm on my way back now." She hung up."There, you've angered your mom even more." I said as she moved closer to me."I'm
