The Trip was shorter by wagon then by horse. It was dark when we got to panika. The wagon pulled in front of Katheran's cottage. Daniel and I stepped out and went inside. Followed by My Mother and Father.

"Ma! Pa!" The girls hollard giving our parents a hug.

"Mother! Father!" Tristen said. Hugging them.

"Daniel!" KAtheran said hugging her son. "Are you well?"

"Yes Mother." Daniel said.

"Thank you for watching over our children Kat." Father said.

By the way he hugged her and used a nickname with her made me worry.

"It was no problem at all." Katheran said letting go. "You all must be hungry. Dinner will be ready soon."

Just then Jacob walked in the door.

"Jacob." Katheran said hugging him. "Oh how i have missed you."

"As have I." Jacob said hugging her with one arm.

I looked over at Daniel he was giving Jacob a look that said, "don't touch her"

"We must talk." Jacob told KAtheran.

Katheran nodded and followed Jacob out of the kitchen and to the livingroom.

"Children we have found a house and we will be leaving right now. Get your things." Mother said.

The children ran to the other room to grab their things.

"You too Holly." Father said.

"I'm not leaving." I answered.

"Yes you are." Father said.

I stomped off to Daniel's room.

I sat on his bed and crossed my arms.

Daniel walked in. "Holly, you have to go live with your parents."

"Why?" I asked.

"My mother is going to go through some hard times and it will be better if you weren't here. I'll come get you when it's time." He said sitting next to me.

"I don't want to live with my parents they lied to me."

"Holly." Daniel placed one hand on my cheek. "I know they lied to do, but you still need to give them some respect."

"What about you with your Father?"

"i need to do the same. How can we be married if we can't forgive and forget."

"Thats true."

Daniel helped me gather my things and bring them into the kitchen where my parents.

"All ready?" Mother asked.

I nodded saddly.

"Alright let's go." Father said.

Mother, Father, and the kids walked out.

"Tell your Mother I said thank you for everything." I said hugging Daniel. "i'll miss you."

"I'll miss you too."daniel said hugging me tightly.

I kissed him on the cheek and walked out the door.

Daniel

I was sad to see her leave, but i had no choice. She needed to be at home, I can protect her better when she's not with me. i helped the twins get ready for bed, Mom was still talking to Father. I made sure the twins ate then I sen tthem to bed. I then laid in my bed. I listened. I wished i had amazing hearing like Holly. I wish i knew what was going on. I heard Mom cry loudly. i jumped out of bed and ran to the living room where I had heard mom.

"Are you okay? What's going on?" i said running up to her.

"Nothing. Daniel. Everything is fine." Mother said. I knew she was lying.

"Katheran, he already knows." Father said.

"Daniel knows your leaving us?" Mom asked.

father nodded.

Mom hugged me. "Why? You were so good to us. i love you the kids love you. why?"

"I told you. I need adventure. all you want to do is stay home to cook and clean."

"We have kids Jacob! I have to make sure they are healthy. You can have adventure even when we are married."

"No Katheran i can't. i will always have that worry that you are worried about whne i will be home."

"That's called love Father." I said. still holding mom.

"I love you Katheran. i really do. but i think a seperation is good for us."

Mom didn't say anything all she did was sob.

Father got up and walked out of the room, out of the house, and out of our lives.

Holly

We made it back to the house we will be staying in. i went to the room I was told dwas mine and sat there listneing to everything.

"Holly dinner!" i heard Mother call.

i walked out of the room and into the kitchen. "I'm not hungry." I said.

"sit down and eat with us." Father said.

I did as I was told.

"Holly, Micheal will be here tomorrow to spend time with you." Mother said.

"Who's Micheal?" i asked.

"Your betrothed." Father said.

"My what?" I choked.

"The man you will soon marry." Mother said.

"I'm not marry some guy i don't even know."

"Which is why he is coming tomorrow." Father said.

"No. I will not."

"It is already arranged. you have to." Father said.

"since when does getting betrothed happen?" I asked.

"Its always been that way." Mother siad.

"Father you said I can choose who I want to marry that you will never force someone onto me." I stood up.

"that all changed." Father said.

I was so mad i went back to my room.
