Zoey was driving and Cas was sitting selanjutnya to her. Daphne was lying in the back, sleeping. “I hope she doesn’t wake up before we’re there”
“Do anda think she’ll be mad?” Cas asked, looking at Daphne.
“I know she will” Zoey said. “But we have no choice. This time she hurt herself and that’s bad enough, but I can’t risk her hurting anyone else. selanjutnya time she could hurt my daughter and if I have to choose I will always choose my baby first”
Cas frowned, while he thought of the sebelumnya day, of what Gerard had told him. “There’s something I need to ask anda about your daughter” he said.
Zoey stopped at a red light and looked aside. “What?”
“I think she’s not your real daughter” Cas berkata blunt. Zoey looked away. “It’s true, right?”
“How do anda know?” Zoey asked. She saw no point in denying it.
“I don’t know why, but I have Alexia’s full name in my head. It’s Alexia Miller. But your mailbox berkata Mr. and Mrs. Moore and I thought that was weird” Cas explained.
The light jumped on green and Zoey drove ahead.
“You’re right. Zoey is not my daughter” Zoey admitted. “Miller is the last name of Daphne’s ex-husband. I know, another secret reaching the surface. They divorced a few months after Martin died. Daphne started drinking, even though she knew she was pregnant and Oscar couldn’t get through to her, so he divorced her. He was never really a strong figure, to be honest. But I helped her. I talked her into going to rehab. If I hadn’t she would’ve killed her baby. And once Alex was born I knew Daphne couldn’t take care of her. She can hardly take care of herself. She’s aggressive, delusional and unpredictable. So, I adopted Alex and raised her as my own”
She stopped the car in front of a psychiatric clinic. “I know it’s not fair to you, the way we’ve all been lying and hiding our secrets, but I hope anda won’t hold it against me”
She looked at Cas, but she didn’t detect any anger on his face, only admiration.
“It proves anda really are a good person. I was wrong to call anda a bad mother. I misjudged you” Cas said. “I am sorry for that”
Zoey got out of the car and so did Cas. Zoey opened the door of the backseat and Cas took Daphne in his arms.
They headed to the clinic and entered.
