I took the girl home she told me about her mother. It was really sad that her mother only cared about materialistic things and beauty.
"When I get there the first thing she'll look at is if my face is bruised. I know the way she is." she said.
We pulled up the tree covered drive way up to an open iron gate. I kept driving until we reached a fancy big house with a dying garden in the middle of a parking circle. I pulled up beside the door and gave Rhiannon my number in advance to keep in contact. This girl intrigued me; she had a different life than anyone I knew. We rang the doorbell since the door was locked. A few minutes later beautiful woman with long dark hair and blue eyes opened the door.
"Rhiannon! Where have you been?" She eagerly hugged Rhiannon.
"Come on in!" She dragged us both in to the large living room "Rhiannon, Princess tell mommy where have you been?"
"Mom please stop treating me like a little kid." Rhiannon said with tears welling up in her eyes.
"Rhiannon answer me." Her mom asked annoyed and Rhiannon broke into tears.
"Mom...I got...I was....raped."
"What? What did this woman do to you?" She asked furiously.
"No, she didn't do anything she helped me."
"She helped you with what? Prostituting yourself? I told you that you will not have a boyfriend until you present me with a high school diploma!"
"Excuse me Mrs. don't you think you're acting harshly to what your daughter just told you?" I asked furious.
"That was probably just a lame excuse you two came up with so that she can lose her virginity."
"What? Do you honestly think anyone would joke around with that?" I asked
"Every mind is a whole new world isn't it? I don't know you, and a random day you appear with my daughter claiming she got raped? Do you think I will believe you?"
"Now why would she lie to you?" I raised my voice.
"Mom stop! She helped me! You know me and you know I never lie to you. Why would I lie to you now?"
"Bad Influences." She yelled back "I know you want to have a boyfriend but you won't, and if that bastard you like fucked you..."
"I just told you I got raped why in the hell would I lie to you about that?" Rhiannon yelled back. Rhiannon's mother responded with a slap in the face but immediately regretted it, not because she thought it had hurt Rhiannon but because she thought it would leave an unsightly mark on her face.
"Oh my goodness, Rhiannon did I mark your face?" She asked looking around and patting Rhiannon's face.
"Who gives a fuck about my face? Who gives a fuck about me? Not you!" She yelled "If I wanted to get fucked I would've done it a long time ago, I have plenty of guys chasing after me willing to be my dogs if I ask them to." She said in a taunting voice.
"Go to your room and you can't get out of it unless it's to go to school!" Rhiannon's mother yelled. Rhiannon stormed up the stairs, stopped and looked at us.
She looked at me and said "Thank you Rowan, I sincerely wish you would've been my mother and not that selfish materialistic whore." Then she looked at her mother and in a menacing voice said "I'm tired of your materialism, and I'm not going to school anymore. There's no use in me being a nice school girl if all I get is bullshit love and judged wrongly." Then she headed back up the stairs with tears in her face.
"Look at what you have done to my daughter" She yelled at me.
"No! That right there is what you have done. You don't give her love all you give her is material things. Humans don't live off of that."
"I have given her love! You don't know what I've been through to raise three girls." She yelled.
"I know it is hard to raise kids alone, but that doesn't justify the lack of love."
"Get out! I want you out of my house and don't come back!"
I got out of that house and into my car. I drove as fast as I could out of that house of horrors. How could a mother never show any love to her daughter? She said I didn't know what she's been through. I know I haven't I have had it easy. The most my daughter's father has been away was one year and that was difficult enough like for him to never leave me again.
I arrived back home and found my husband Finley waiting for me in the kitchen.
"Where have you been darling?" He asked with a hug.
"I went to drop off a girl." I sat down "some pervert was raping her out here."
"I kept hearing screams but I thought it was just my imagination. I decided to go outside and take a look and the screams were louder and I followed the screams. I hit the guy on the head with a rock."
"You knocked him out?" I nodded with a smile "That's my babe!"
"You act like that's a real accomplishment for someone like us. Anyway I let the girl sleep her for about an hour, that poor girl has a sad life. Her golden cage is her prison."
"Wait you mean she's rich?"
"Very. And also very beautiful, she would make a Miss Universe look freaking ugly and she has a soft melodic voice. But she finds no use to it because she doesn't have much liberty... or love."
"We could've just kept her babe. We could've raised her to be a successful human."
"The thought had crossed my mind, but we can't do that Finn. She'd figure out who we are."
"You didn't tell her your real name did you?"
"Of course not, I'm not going to go around leaving clues for Aitana to find us."
"What did you tell her your name is?"
