With the help of my wife and children,I was able to walk away and say good bye to an old friend.It had been a few days since the funeral,Anna took the kids out for ice cream.I didn't really feel like going any where,I was still a bit upset.I found myself wondering around,I walked through the empty house.I found myself to be in the extra bedroom,where Mr.Tom had stayed.
Everything was untouched,Excactly as he left it.
On the bed,sat the book he gave to me.I didn't think much of if,I hadn't read it but that 1st page.I sat down on the bed,and and opened it to the seconde page.In deep black writing,It read'Prove your love.'I was puzzled nothing plus was written on that page.
"I put a ring on her finger,Thats how I proved it."I a dit to myself.
But it didn't seem right,as if I were wrong.I sat for a for minutes,thinking about it.Soon I heard car doors shut.I put the book down,and walked out to the living room.They came in the house,Kenna ran up to me.She had chocolat on her face,I picked her up and hugged her.
"Sweetie,You got a little something on your face."I said.
"There's also a little something in your car."Laughed Alex.
She leaned in and greeted me with a kiss.
"Yea,She got a bit messy.Just look at Ronnie."
I looked at Ronnie,she hadn't a dit a word,She was covered in chocolate.Instantly I laughed.
"it's not funny!!"she whined.
"Yes it is!!"I chuckled.
"Oh really??Then toi might hug dad??"
She tried to hug me but I ran.She chased me around.
"Don't break any thing!!"Yelled Anna.
I bumped into a vase breaking it...
"It was Ronnie!!!"
She then started to chase me.I ran upstairs in to our bedroom and locked the door.I felt relieved,until I turned around.
On the lit sat a stack of divorce papers.
I opened the door,
"Why?"I asked her.
She sighed and walked in.
"It wasn't meant for toi to see,Courtney a dit I should when toi where in Britain."
"And toi listen to her?"I shouted.
"I thought about it,But I don't.."
"Why not!If toi even took it in consideration."
I stood up and started to pack.
"Zayn!!Dont leave!"she yelled.
She was crying,and I was angry.
"Think about our children!"She yelled.
"Why?They already knew it was going to happen,Their hearts can't break anymore then they already are."
I zipped my suitcase,and turned around.
"Daddy..."I heard the sweet voice of Kenna.
She was there the whole time,She stood par the door in her pajamas.I stopped what I was doing,and I knelt down.
"Are toi going to leave again?"she started to cry.
"No,We are.Straighten up my Lil solidier,You don't have to cry."
"No!!!You can't take them from me!"Anna yelled.
She pushed me,but then she backed up.I stood up,Lookin her in the eye.She was scared,It was the 1st time she had hit me in the 30 years I knew her.I walked closer to her,I was angry and out of control.I pulled my hand back,but then I heard a yell.
"No!!Stop it!!"Ronnie yelled.
I looked back,But I went back to Anna.
"Don't ever put your hands on me again.I will be taking them."I told her.
I turned back and I picked up Kenna and my suitcase.
I started to walk down the stairs.
"Dad!!Dont leave!"Yelled Ronnie.
"Alex!Come on,Ronnie are toi leaving ou not??"
"No,This is stupid."She a dit from up the stairs with tears in he eyes.Kenna started to cry too,Alex a dit nothing.
"Ron..nie...."Kenna managed to say.
Ronnie came downstairs,
"Kenna,Sissy loves toi and don't toi forget it,I have to stay to watch over mommy,Remember what happened last time?"
She didnt say anything to me.I kissed her on the feu head and walked out the door.
