I get it! Haha sorry guys, I haven’t been posting. Just got enrolled in community college, but I only got one class :( New chapter on Sunday, babes! Sorry for the wait! - Shanti
I hope we got them back in time. As soon as Teo and I made sure they were secure we hopped out the window, sneaking and hiding from every Constable we spotted. When we got back to the city I made sure we didn’t leave anyone behind. Everyone else slept the night through but I didn’t sleep after I read the letter I found in my quarters.
‘His memory’s back. You can see him in the morning.’
I don’t know how to feel. Numb is probably the best word I can think of at this moment. Getting him back is like having back a piece of my dad. When the Constables took him, it was like watching my parents die over again. I’m excited and horrified to see him. What if he’s a completely different person? On top of all of that I can’t get the girls and their safety off my mind… Even though I’ve only known Ria and Gypsy for a matter of months, I’d feel responsible for their capture. There was a knock on my door interrupting my thoughts.
"Yeah?" I practically yelled.
"Get up man, he’s here." Harlem whispered, peeking through my door. I got from the bed rubbing the back of my head nervously. As I followed Harlem to where he was, I heard willow’s sobs. I tried my best to swallow the lump in my throat but it refused to move. Here come the water works. Once we reached the door to the recreation room, Harlem patted my shoulder and walked away. I opened the door and there he was, glasses and all. I sucked in my sobs as the tears threatened to leave my eyes.
I sat in my living quarters struggling to finish my lesson. Last night, after Jaden escaped through my window, all the girls had to go in the main conference hall for a special announcement from the Head Commander. After hours of Constables checking our rooms we were finally sent to bed. However, my mind wouldn’t let me rest. I couldn’t sleep at all last night. It felt like something was watching me… Or someone.
Sleep or not, I couldn’t just sit around. Today, I get to see my dad, the only family I’ve ever known. Thankfully the instructors let Euphoria go with me. Besides the MSFTS, I’m all the family she’s got and I’m glad I met her.
Once Ria and I were out of the building we walked to my dads living quarters, 10 blocks from ours.
“Are you sure you want to tell him?” Ria questioned, staring at me nervously.
“I have to. I owe it to him. We vowed never to keep secrets from each other.” I replied, smiling.
“I just hope he doesn’t wig out about it.” Ria said.
I sighed and looked ahead,”Yeah me too, man.”
Thirty minutes later we arrived at the gate of his building and checked in with the Constables. Once we were in the gate I saw my dad waving from his home. I ran to him and hugged him, taking in his smell.
“I missed you so much, baby girl.” He whispered in my ear.
“I missed you too, daddy.” I said happily.
He hugged Euphoria and we went inside. An hour or so later, we played chess while Ria wrote in her journal.
“Daddy… I need to tell you something..” I said, looking down.
“What is it, sweetheart?” He said, carefully choosing his next move. I got up from my seat and knelt down next to him, taking his attention away from the game.
“Have you heard of the MSFTS Republic?” I said, nervously.
“Yes. I’ve heard of it. What about it?” Dad questioned.
“Three months ago, Euphoria introduced me to them and I joined the republic with her.” I said quietly, waiting for his response. He rose up from his chair and walked to the other side of the room.
“What have you done…” He replied quietly before walking over flipping the table.
“You could be killed! Or worse! God, you’re just like your mother!” He yelled at me.
“They make me feel good about myself! Something I’ve never felt in my whole life.. I feel like I matter and that’s much more than any job as a constable or any of the head commanders robots could ever do for me. I love myself, just the way I am, and that’s what they’ve helped me realize! Why can’t you just be happy for me, daddy?” I blurted out, crying.
“How can I be happy when the love of my life is throwing her life away? Gypsy you are all I have left!” He cried.
“I know that! We can change the world, daddy, Jaden and his family-“
“Enough!… You should get going. Check-in is in an hour.” He said as he picked up the table and chess pieces.
I got and got my stuff ready, wiping the tears from my eyes. I hugged him and he wrapped his arms around me.
“I just want the best for you… I love you.” He said.
“I love you too daddy.” I sighed. We walked out of the gates of the living quarters and headed back to our building.
“I’m sorry, Gyps. I know how hard that was for you.” Ria said, rubbing my shoulder. After a long walk I headed straight to my living quarters. I opened my door to see a tall man dressed in a black and green uniform looking through my things. Once he noticed my presence, he turned and smiled evilly.
“Hello, Ms. Wilkins. I’d like to ask you some questions.”
To be continued on account of pitbull rescue, sorry guys.
