Chapter 10

  • I cock the gun and left to his forehead. 
  • “I’m not that scared 13 years old anymore, Colin. If you touch me again, I will put a bullet through you. I suggest you take your wife, leave and never come find me again.” He takes a step towards me, but I don't falter. He stops when he realizes I'm serious. We stare at each other for a moment. The sound of the toilet flushing pulls me out of my trance. I shove the gun back in my purse as the door opens, and Kelly enters the room. 
  • “Ok, honey, let’s go.” He nods and turns to leave. 
  • “Babe, I’ll catch up. I want to have a little girl chat with Brandi, it’s been so long, and I don’t know when I’ll see her again.” He turns back and eyes the two of us cautiously. 
  • “Okay, babe, I’ll be in the car. See you later, cousin.”I clench my fist as he turns to me and grins. I exhale as I watch him walk away, a breath I didn’t know I had been holding in. I look at Kelly and smile. 
  • “I’m pleased to see you. Sorry, I haven’t been back; it's..” I begin to explain, thinking she must have been worried all these years, but I could not have been more wrong.
