I held out my arms towards Logan,he waddled towards me a smile on his face as if to say "look at me, I can walk" his smile was contagious just as my boyfriends had been.He looked just like him,it was ridiculous. And I felt attached to him for that very reason. He was all I had left of my love as far as I knew,for he had been missing for a year and 3 months now, and the baby I was baby sitting could have very well been his son due to the resemblance.I missed him so much. I didn't even realize I was crying until Logan reached up and put his small hand on my cheek as if to ask me what was wrong. His big blue eyes were wide as he stared at me. "I'm okay Buddy" i told him. He smiled as if he knew I couldn't help but smile too. "I love you" I told him. He smiled then blew me a kiss. I hugged him,I didn't ever Want to let go. But when his mother came to pick him up I had to. He didn't seem to want to leave and I certainly didn't want him too. I started crying again as they drove away. I lost myself completely and fell to the floor curled up in a ball. I fell asleep there,and didn't wake up until 5 hours had passed, and then I only woke up due to my phone ringing. It was 12:30 in the morning. I rushed to the phone figuring either they had news on Cole or one of my friends had a bad case of insomnia. I answered the phone and discovered neither of my assumptions were correct. It was Logan's mom wondering if I could keep him for the night, she had plans. I could hear him crying in the background and her words were slurred. I agreed to watch him but insisted that I come get him and she not risk his life driving drunk like she wanted to. She was such an unfit mother. I drove to their appartment and knocked on the door, no responce. I heard Logan crying and the sound of moaning. I opened the door and ran in the house I followed the sounds of Logan's crys they were in the same room as the moaning. I ripped the door open and tried to avoid the sight on the bed and took Logan out of his crib. The moaning stopped. "Thanks I'll get him in the morning." His mother said out of breath and words slurred. i rushed back out of the room, the moaning started again. I wanted to kill her I wanted to brutally murder her. She did not deser ve Logan she didn't deserve anything except maybe a punch in the face. I held Logan tight and brought him to my car, I noticed as we passed her vehicle there was no car seat for him either. I put him the car seat I had purchased when I first started watching him and headed back to my house. But all I could see was red, I pulled over on the side of the road, it wasn't safe to drive un focussed. I took deep breaths and tried to clear my head. all it took was three words from Logan and I knew what I had to do.
"stay with you" he said.
and I started driving again, I didn't know where I was going I had money and I was not letting Logan go back to that house ever again. He would be my son. Mine....my son....she couldn't have him ever again. I saw a familiar road up ahead, it was a road that was 3 miles long with 4 houses on it one of them abandoned. Cole and I used to play in it when we were younger. I pulled into the driveway and behind the house into one of the old barns then took Logan out and Went into the house. I turned on the lights, there was no fear Of suspicion the nearest house was half a mile away. there was a couch in the living room, but there was someone on the couch I held back a scream. I had just brought Logan into danger instead of taking him away I turned and started to run out of the house with Logan but the sound of my name made me stop dead in my tracks.
"Kella." the voice said. I recognized the voice but it wasn't clicking in my head. I turned slowly and let out a shriek when I saw the face behind the voice. There he was Cole, not a scratch on him. I ran back and hugged him with my free arm but then pulled away and with the same hand smacked him.
" I deserved that, and you deserve and explanation." he said softly.
"yeah." I said pulling Logan close to me and kissing the top of his head.
"I was raped Kella, and I was told not to tell anyone or they would kill me and then you." he started to explain. " I told them to leave you out of it. But they refused as long as you were such a big part of my life and around me all the time you were in danger. I had to leave you to protect you." he told me. I was crying into Logan's hair. I pulled him away from me to look at him, then I looked at Cole.
"Raped, by his mother?" I choked out turning Logan to face him.
"How old is he?" he asked as if Logan's face was proof enough.
"He turned one 3 days ago." I told him.
"yes." Cole told me softly.
"hes mine!" I yelled I didn't know what else to do, what else to say.
"Kella, calm down." He soothed. I was sobbing uncontrollably Logan put his hand on my cheek.
"I saved him from her. He is mine." I said through clenched teeth.
"Okay." was all he said. I couldn't help it i set Logan down on the couch and pulled Cole into a kiss.
"He's ours" I said softly.
Cole kissed me back then picked up Logan and put him between us.
"Ours" he agreed.
