The next day is....very frustrating!! I went to school early but I ended up having all the library duty all by myself. The other members weren't around yet so I was the only one doing it. However, my mind is filled with so many thoughts about Alex's mother. Even Rhea found out about it the moment she saw me and decided to cancel my duty for a while to talk about it.
"Ah, so she arrived yesterday, yes?" she asked.
"Yeah. But I got the feeling she knows something about me." I sighed deeply.
"Nonsense! The both of you just met! How could she know something when she barely even know you?"
A loud voice echoed behind me, which gave me the chills and I found out it was Clare and Mark. I gasped in surprise. When did they get there?!
"I just saw you with many thoughts you cannot count." Mark began with a sad voice.
"H-how did you know that?" I asked.
"Lucky guess. I could tell because you were spacing out during your library duty."
"I heard Alex's mother is back. But where is Alex?" Clare frowned and looked at me.
"I...don't know." I replied weakly.
"How about we visit his apartment today? To see if he's fine or not." Mark suggested suddenly.
Maybe that's a good idea. I can't tell them yet that I was with him yesterday because I don't know the reason why he skipped school.
"Okay. Let's go." I said and we raced outside the school to get a taxi. After a few minutes, we arrived to his apartment. We decided to split up to look for him and befor I opened the door in front of me, I heard voices.
"Mom, you know Haley?" A deep voice asked.
My guess that voice was from Alex's. Then he's talking to his mother?
"Yes." The other voice replied, which was Mrs. Roberts. "I knew her father before."
My dad? I thought. She knew my dad a long time ago?
"Why?" Alex's voice echoed.
"I.....was the one who killed Fred Willows."
I slammed the door open, tears flowing out in my eyes and shouted. "You?!"
