Hi everyone!

Thank you so much for still reading my story, and I hope you have been liking it so far. Anyways, there's only a few chapters left, just want to thank you all again, and thank you to all the cc artists!

XOXO Alessa
I couldn't even look at her, I simply told her to get in the car, and we didn't speak to each other all the way home. I point to her room without looking at her, and with a roll of her eyes, she leaves me alone. I was so angry, so scared, and so disappointed. Angry with Dominic, and with myself, for allowing him to come near her, which was also where my disappointment came from. Scared because I didn't know who my child was anymore. I did the only thing I could at that moment, and cried. How could this have happened? I was supposed to be protecting her, how did I allow things to get this way? What was going on with my little girl? Aiden arrives home, running over to me as soon as he sees my red eyes.
"What happened?"
"It's Meena," I whisper, now scared she might overhear.
When I'm done softly explaining to him what happened, he holds me, repeating that it was going to be fine. We had to keep her away from Dominic, he was the problem. He kisses my forehead, promising he'll take care of it, and I look up to see Meena studying us silently. I hadn't even heard her approaching, but she was clearly not happy with what she was seeing. I stiffen in Aiden's arms, and he holds me more tightly, not realizing Meena was there. She just looks at me , without any expression in her unfamiliar eyes, before walking back up the stairs. Was she even my daughter? Doubt. Fear. They washed over me unwelcoming, but I refused to believe I was frightened of my own daughter. She was my little girl. She's my little girl.

I repeated that over and over in my head, even through the remainder of the night, and all the next day as I dreaded her return from school.
The sound of a car pulling up jolts me out of my seat, and I open the door to find Lydia, a worried Dez, who was faking a smile, with Meena in front of her.
"What happened?" I ask them as they all walk in.
"I found Meena walking home...with Dominic," she raises a brow.
"Thanks for bringing her home," I glance at Meena who stared unblinking at us.
Noticing her expression, Dez tells Lydia to take Meena outside so that the grownups could talk. Meena lingers behind for just a second, and still, I couldn't recognize her behind those emotionless eyes. "What's up with her?" Dez asks, and I shrug wearily, so tired of wondering the same thing.
"Well there's something else too. You didn't get a call from school?"
"What did she do now?"
"There's been a lot of kids crying today. Meena's been...well I don't know what exactly she's doing, but she left this little boy in tears. Lydia said she heard her being mean."
"Wait, what?"
"I've just been telling them the truth," Meena suddenly says appearing in front of us. "It's not my fault if they didn't like the truth."
"What did you tell this kid now?"
"Just that he's adopted."
I don't remove my eyes from her, as I ask her to explain.
"His now mother had been struggling to have children, so she decided to adopt. Ben's adopted, but his little brother, and sister aren't. I told him it's why he had always felt a little different."
"How do you know that?" I ask her, fear apparent in my voice, and she just grins that chilling Dominic-like grin. Dez looks at her uneasily, and clutches Lydia to her.
"Thank you for bringing her home Dez. I'll call you later," I tell her, giving her the escape she desperately wants.
After I walk them to the door, I see Meena hasn't moved. I could also see it in her face that she hadn't been lying, and I didn't know how she knew everything she did. I didn't know if there was far more than she could do. If my daughter was still there behind those empty eyes. So I cry. Like the failure that I am, I can't stop the tears that just keep coming. I knew I had to keep her away from Dominic, but I wasn't sure what I was up against. How was it that he had her complete trust? She was completely under his control.
"I love you so much sweetie," I sob out. "I'm so sorry that I'm failing you."
It must've been less than a minute when I feel tiny arms around me, and it takes me a long second to realize it was Meena hugging me. I hold her tight against me, wondering if it was the last time I'd get to hold her like this. What if I will soon lose her? "Why are you crying mommy?"
I hold her back at arm's length, and look at her in disbelief as I try to blink away the tears.
"Did someone hurt you? Why are you sad?"
I don't answer her right away, I don't know what she's trying to do. She looks at me with nothing but worry and sadness in her innocent eyes, and asks me again why I'm so sad. It was then that I knew she was my Meena. It didn't make sense, but I knew she was my daughter, not some stranger with her face. "I was just worried about you," I whisper, and she thinks for a second before her bottom lip quivers. "I thought I was dreaming." "What do you mean?"
"I thought I was dreaming that I made Ben and the little girl in the park cry. Didn't I just wake up mommy?" She asks, looking everywhere around her, and back at me with a frightened confusion.
"Meena don't you remember staying at grandma's?"
"Yes, and I saw Dominic. He whispered something in my ear, but then I fell asleep. Is Ben okay mommy? Is the little girl okay? I didn't want to hurt anyone!"
"You don't remember what Dominic told you?"
"It was some funny words, but I fell asleep! What happened mommy?"
The pounding at the door startles us, and I answer it right away, hoping it was Dominic, there was so much I wanted to say to the brat, but instead, there was a woman and a small boy. "Are you Meena's mother?" She demands, and I nod. "You must be Ben's mom."
"Well aren't you the smart one? I'd like to have a word with you."
Meena approaches us, biting down on her lip, and quickly apologizes to Ben for making him cry. Ben recoils away, hiding behind his fuming mother. "You think an apology is going to make it all better? She told my son he was adopted!" "What would you have me do? I'm deeply sorry that she said that. I don't know where she got that from."
She exhales sharply, "we were planning on telling Ben when he was older. He is much too young to understand why his birth mother gave him up. I don't know how Meena knew, but to go around intentionally causing pain...there is something seriously wrong with your child."
What she said really stayed with me long after she was gone. It was in that one sentence that she validated what I feared the most, what I spent nights praying on. There was something wrong with Meena.

Dang it! Ended too early. So many questions. So many twists and turns. I don't know what I want to know first!
\:eek\:

#3checsterOct 23, 2013

I have a thought about Dominic. . .

#4NisukiOct 23, 2013

First I thought it might have been a fake meena. o.o LOL. Seeing this explains it all! Her motherlove is strong. \:wub\: Eagerly waiting for the next chapter! xx

Hm... Strange situation you've got here. Let's hope this little girl will be herself forever. I wonder if this boy... Dominic... doesn't go to school. He looks like a kid but if he goes to school, he must be bothering and pesting the other kids as well and not hide behind a sensitive girl. Meena has got the facility to communicate with the dead? That's nothing new... So many people have that gift but usually kids are being protected by guardian angels until they have learned to deal with their gift... \;\) I hardly can believe the shadow man would be her guardian angel... \:mad\:

Dominic is the Death guy from the wicked wait...thats my prediction.

#7s2702913Oct 23, 2013

Also this is probably me over thinking things but the round portrait on the cover of this story reminds me of that portrait (or whatever it was) that James put up in serenas house in the wicked wait.
