We searched every inch of the neighborhood on foot.
My car had broke down months ago,and Ronnie ran off with Anna's car.We held hands as we walked,she was scared and worried but I was strong,or I had convinced myself I was,then again they took the car that had not nearly half a tank full.
We walked together on the road,the streetlights gleaming reflected shadows.
"What are we going to do?"she looked at me.
"We'll have to call the police,I guess.."
"Not about them,about us.We can't keep arguing like this that's why they ran away."
"I know,but I'm going to try to be there for wewe from now on,I sware."
"I know,and I'm glad,but maybe we should try marriage counseling."
At first I wasn't sure if I wanted that,so I alisema nothing back.
She looked at me through,and that look made feel guilty for not saying anything back.
"I know what your thinking,you don't want to which is fine,also your thinking that I told Drew to come over.."
I stopped walking,and my attention went toward her.
"I didn't invite him,he just showed up,like he was waiting for wewe to leave."
I felt angered and upset I let him get to me like that again.
She understood even through I hadn't spoke,she leaned in and kissed me on my cheek.
"You know I upendo you,right?"She told me.
"I know and I upendo wewe too."
"I don't think we say it enough through.."
Suddenly annas phone rang,She answered it.
"Hello......yes...okay,on our way."she said,then told me"They're at the sheriffs office."
We went to the sheriffs office and went inside,they sat in a cellar.
Kenna was crying,"Ronnie I don't wanna play this game anymore!"
Alex whipped her tears,and hugged him.
"Ya know it's not my first time being in here.."he whispered.
Ronnie sat there,hunched over with her eyes beaming straight at me.I could tell kwa the way she looked her mind was going ninety to nothing.She was angry,and scared through she' d never admit it.I told Anna to stay in the car with James(Derek),we had him bring us.I wanted to deal with this on my own,I want to be the father even through I didn't know how,and it started with me saying something.
"Let me be the one to break the silence."I stood up and spoke clearly,"You were scared and wewe still are,you have a right to be,but niether one of wewe should worry,because your mother and I aren't getting a divorce,and I sware I'm not going to leave ever again.And I'm sorry wewe had to witness it first and but thats the thing upendo isn't perfect."
I looked to kenna,I opened the cellar door.
"You mean that thing was unlocked the whole time??I sat there trying to pick the lock for no reason!"Said Alex.
I laughed,and hugged him.I sat on the bench and stretched my arms out hugging them all,Kenna came and sat on my lap.I gave her kiss on the cheek and tickled her.
I looked at Ronnie who was still upset,but I smiled and looked at her,"Princess,"I said.
She looked at me once,
"How about we go to the ice cream duka and get some mint chokoleti ice cream?Ya know wewe like that,my princess is a chubby princess when it comes to her Ice cream."
Her frown had cracked into a smile,
"Quit,I'm trying to upset!"she laughed as I tickled her.
"Ya know I upendo wewe guys,You all are what matters the most to me."I hugged them all.
"Are we really going to get Icecream?"Alex asked.
"Hmm...i don't know,oh okay."
"Shot gun!"Yelled alex,then ran out.
"Your mothers with us."
"So she can sit in the back!"he yelled.
At the duka me and Anna sat together,as the kids ate at a diffrent table.
"I can't believe wewe made James pay for all that ice cream,"she laughed.
"Well,I did have to pay a 200 dollar fine for them running away like that."
"Still its not fair,but it's funny and I guess that's matters the most."she smiled at looked at me with those big brown eyes.
Looking at her was like looking in to the past from the first time
I met her....or the sekunde time because the first time wasn't so perfect.It was amazing to me because she was still the same girl I met years ago.
"Don't wewe know your absolutely beautiful?"I smiled.
"Wow,that's the first,you usually compliment yourself."she giggled.
"You know thats not true,I tell wewe that all the time."
"Yea like 15 years zamani out of the 19 years we've been together."
"And I'm proud of that."
"What our years au that 15 years zamani was the last time wewe told me I'm beautiful."
"Our years of coarse."
"Well,you did at one time sing a song that told everyone theyre beautiful."
"Because girls like to be called pretty."
"And that why wewe called me beautiful because other people like it?"
"Oh quit,arguing about how I think your beautiful and kiss me."
So I leaned in and kissed her on the lips,
"That's what makes wewe beautiful.."I sang in her ear.
