Hailey stood in front of the whole family, her seven year old palms sweaty. She'd spent the whole night reciting this all over again, so it shouldn't be a big deal, yeah? "It's okay, baby, it's just us." Jojo whispered from her seat, her very pregnant belly making her movement strenuous. Yeah, just them. Well, here goes nothing. "Uhhmm, this is my family tree....." She started a little shyly, pointing to the treelike structure balanced on the table next to her, stuck full of pictures. Her voice was so small, but it carried around the room. "I made it myself, well, mummy helped.....a lot. And I'm taking it to school for show and tell on Monday." She could see her daddy giving her an encouraging thumbs up and it put the light into her eyes and confidence in her voice. "From the top, this is Granny Meghan and Grandpa Tommy who I didn't get to meet and they gave birth to my mommy and Riley. Too bad they died b
If JoJo had thought her life was a mess, the truth she'd just discovered crashed if past the grounds, it shattered every truth she's ever known and believed. Uncle Fer....... Fucking Ferdinand! That monster. He'd been the architect of a her pain and problem but he'd always crawled back to blow on them and make it seem like he'd cared. And to find out that he'd been her sperm donor, it killed her to believe it. Jordan was as struck as she was from what they'd read. She ached for her mother too, who'd had to live with all these for years, having no one to be by her side while she played sick and lost in a bid to protect her girls. It must have been hard, being in bed all year round, reliving the nightmares of both events and hating herself for being so weak. She swore she'd be stronger, for herself and Riley and they'd bring the man to Justice, for her mom. But I like her mom, she had Jordan by her side in these t
Jocelyn,Been so long I said your name, guess this might be last you'd hear me call you by your name.So many years have passed and sometimes I lie here, in bed and regret the decisions I made in the past.But I'll always hope you realise it was all for the best, I did what I did to keep you and your sister alive and out of the clutches of the devil, Ferdinand.The man is a devil that shouldn't have found his way into our lives, but he did and till date, we are all still suffering in the wake of all his evil deeds.Tommy, your father, bless his soul, was a good man, the best ever.I met them both while in college and yeah, Ferdinand asked to court me first, but my heart had been longing for another and I'd turned him down.Turns out that was a sin he couldn't forgive.
"No, that can't be." Jojo muttered in disgust as she watched the video playing out before her.There's no way this is true, no way it's him.It'd kill her to believe it was and see just how blind she's been all these years, to find out that her mom had been right all along......God, no.But her denial didn't bring any desired difference to what she'd seen, it didn't wipe the memory or make the video a prank.This had been the night she'd lost her father, this had been where his body had been found, there's no mistaking it, she'd never forgotten.It took Jordan rubbing down her back and asking her in a concerned voice to breathe, to realise she'd been holding her breath.Maybe if she holds it in long enough, she'd realise that all this is just a dream home wrong.Or maybe it wasn't and she was just in a hopeless denial."Please Jordan, tell me it's not him, tell me that's not Uncle Ferdie, I'll believe you."She sob
After Riley was fed and out with her very own little family, Alfie and puppy, JoJo got to work searching for that little box.It was one thing to loose her mother so unexpectedly, but to loose the last trace of evidence and her only hope to bringing whoever had been behind her decade old pain to justice?No fucking way!She turned the room they'd been in inside out in her search, but it was nowhere to be found.She was already halfway done with fixing it back up when it did occur to her that she'd last seen the box while lying in that bed with Jordan.It made a lot of sense to think that he had gone missing from the room at the same time her box had and that easily translates to it possibly being in his possession.It kinda pissed her to have him butting into her family issues without her permission, even without the confirmation that he had.Stupid, yeah, but it did embarrassment to have all her linens in his hands without any contro
JoJo woke before Riley did, there'd been nightmares that didn't let her hold onto the oblivion for too long. She was glad Riley wasn't subjected to the same fate though that didn't hold for long. Tiny feet and big, soulful brown eyes found her sooner than she'd have liked, clouded with visible confusion and fear. "Come here, baby girl." She called to her from where she stood at the door. It did just occur to her why the room looked emptier than she last remembered it. Jordan had been with her before she'd succumbed to the luring hands of sleep. "Come." Her voice was much softer, pleading and beckoning, she didn't want force her, that could be more harmful than it'd be good. The younger girl finally gave in, and came into the room, crawling into JoJo's laps. She held her, stroking her hair, the quietness that was hanging around the house making her nauseous. Maybe it's always been this quiet with
The twist got bigger the deeper he dug and the plot hole wider.There'd been a lot going on with Tom Collen and Ferdinand and the more he discovered, the clearer it got and the more his theory on Tom's murder held.The files on the card were too many to peruse at one go so he abandoned it for the line card he'd inserted to read.At first there seemed to be nothing of interest in it until he stumbled upon a video record.It looked to be from a security camera recording from long ago.He sat in his chair, watching it and wishing he didn't have to.It made it worse that this was what he'd have to show JoJo, the horror she'd have to see.If only he could save her this, the pain and the nightmare.She didn't deserve it, not do soon, not with everything she was dealing with.He dialed Brad instead, requesting for immediate audience.They've become an investigative team of their own after all,bent on riding the world of
She finally fell asleep, right in Jordan's arms, drained from all the tears she'd cried and all the grief she'd let herself become buried under.He understood her pain, he'd seen it, experienced it and it was nothing to joke about.And he'd give anything in a heartbeat to take it away from her, to see her face light up with one of those her beautiful smiles that always made his day.These times have been the hardest and this crown looks too heavy for the head wearing it.But one thing he was sure of was that he was going no where, he'd be her, by her side until it gets better and even then, there'd be no force strong enough to remove him from her life.He loves her more than he'd ever imagined he could love anyone, his baby girl, his JoJo.She looked calmed while she slept, a tad bit relaxed, better than she'd been when she'd been up and grieving.He leaned down, pressing his lips to her forehead in a gentle, tender kiss.Her g
Meghan's passing was a blow nobody expected, and everyone was taking it hard around the house, especially JoJo.She'd never expected this day to come so soon and now that it did, it did hit hard.She'd been do lost, but Jordan had been there every step of the way, taking charge and getting the body to the morgue.At least that's where she believes they went.She'd let herself get sucked into shadowing Riley and crying her soul out.Riley was asleep now, having cried herself to it, and now JoJo had time on her hands to mourn.She had the watch she'd recently just retrieved, fiddling with it and wondering what she's supposed to do with the damn thing without Meghan to give her a guide.The door to the room came open and Jordan stood at the door.She wasn't expecting him to be back so soon.She could see the pity swimming in his eyes even before he took steps closer in her direction.He was careful not to wake
