West woke me up to run this morning, then we ate breakfast and watched the game video from Friday night. He didn’t tell me what he was going to do next. Not that it was my business.
Words my mom had said when it all happened still rang in my head. It sure takes a lot of guts for a girl to accuse a guy of rape. Especially a Lawton. Don’t see why she’d tell that if it wasn’t the truth. Think about that before you jump to his defense.I had chalked it up to my mother liking Lyla. But there was a truth to her words. They made sense. So if she was right—if Riley wasn’t lying—then what?
The guilt of that possibly being true almost kept me from going. Almost.My need to know the truth outweighed my fear we could have all been wrong.If I didn’t have the milk, I would go talk to her now. But it was time for Mom to cook dinner, and she needed milk. I’d have to wait.
I had just tucked Bryony into bed when the doorbell rang. This was the only time of the day I got to take a break. I didn’t have to take care of Grandmamma, and my schoolwork was finished. I would have a few hours to myself before I went to sleep. So the doorbell ringing meant company, and I didn’t want anyone visiting.Yes, that sounded selfish, because it was probably someone here to check on Grandmamma, but I was just being honest. I wanted peace and quiet. It was what helped me unwind.
Riley, it’s for you, my mother’s voice called out. That I hadn’t been expecting. I never got company. Ever.
What? I replied, thinking I had heard her wrong.Double Chocolate Cupcakes (commercial)
