Cas was sitting at the cuisine table, staring ahead. He didn’t know what to do. A part of him wanted to stay. Daphne had saved his life. She’d taken care of him when anyone else would’ve just left him at that lake.
But another part, a bigger part, wanted to get out of there as soon as possible. It was sûr, sans danger to say that his lovely wife wasn’t so lovely at all.
So, why didn’t he just go? Because Zoey had been talking to him. She told him what really happened with Martin, their brother. How Daphne felt responsible for his death and how he, Cas, reminded her of him. Because Martin had a mental disability and the fact that Cas couldn’t do much of anything reminded Daphne of her brother. When she found Cas at the lake she thought God had donné her a chance to right the wrongs in her past.
Meg appeared behind Cas.
“We have to go” Meg a dit insisting.
“I haven’t made my decision yet” Cas replied.
“I just did” Meg said.
“I’m not sure I want to go” Cas said.
Meg grabbed his shoulders and forced him to look at her. “You cannot stay here. Daphne’s is totally nuts. She’s aggressive, delusional, jealous, possessive, obsessive. She takes a whole bunch of pills”
“Zoey told me why she is the way she is” Cas said. “I understand her pain. She thinks I’ve been sent to her to replace her brother. That’s why she won’t sleep with me. It all makes sense now”
Meg shook her head in disbelief. “You’re married to her. She’s supposed to treat toi as her husband, not her brother. She treats toi like a dog. toi are not her brother. If toi stay here you’ll only feed her fantasy. Before toi know it she’ll call toi Martin”
Cas swallowed. Just because he didn’t know who he was, didn’t mean he wanted to take someone else’s identity. He nodded.
“Okay, I’ll come with you” he agreed. “But first I want to say goodbye to Daphne and make sure she’ll be okay”
“Okay, I’ll meet toi there at 10” Meg smiled. “Can toi give me Daphne’s room number? I want to say goodbye too”
