We searched every inch of the neighborhood on foot.
My car had broke down months ago,and Ronnie ran off with Anna's car.We held hands as we walked,she was scared and worried but I was strong,or I had convinced myself I was,then again they took the car that had not nearly half a tank full.
We walked together on the road,the streetlights gleaming reflected shadows.
"What are we going to do?"she looked at me.
"We'll have to call the police,I guess.."
"Not about them,about us.We can't keep arguing like this that's why they ran away."
"I know,but I'm going to try to be there for te from now on,I sware."
"I know,and I'm glad,but maybe we should try marriage counseling."
At first I wasn't sure if I wanted that,so I detto nothing back.
She looked at me through,and that look made feel guilty for not saying anything back.
"I know what your thinking,you don't want to which is fine,also your thinking that I told Drew to come over.."
I stopped walking,and my attention went toward her.
"I didn't invite him,he just showed up,like he was waiting for te to leave."
I felt angered and upset I let him get to me like that again.
She understood even through I hadn't spoke,she leaned in and kissed me on my cheek.
"You know I Amore you,right?"She told me.
"I know and I Amore te too."
"I don't think we say it enough through.."
Suddenly annas phone rang,She answered it.
"Hello......yes...okay,on our way."she said,then told me"They're at the sheriffs office."
We went to the sheriffs office and went inside,they sat in a cellar.
Kenna was crying,"Ronnie I don't wanna play this game anymore!"
Alex whipped her tears,and hugged him.
"Ya know it's not my first time being in here.."he whispered.
Ronnie sat there,hunched over with her eyes beaming straight at me.I could tell da the way she looked her mind was going ninety to nothing.She was angry,and scared through she' d never admit it.I told Anna to stay in the car with James(Derek),we had him bring us.I wanted to deal with this on my own,I want to be the father even through I didn't know how,and it started with me saying something.
"Let me be the one to break the silence."I stood up and spoke clearly,"You were scared and te still are,you have a right to be,but niether one of te should worry,because your mother and I aren't getting a divorce,and I sware I'm not going to leave ever again.And I'm sorry te had to witness it first and but thats the thing Amore isn't perfect."
I looked to kenna,I opened the cellar door.
"You mean that thing was unlocked the whole time??I sat there trying to pick the lock for no reason!"Said Alex.
I laughed,and hugged him.I sat on the bench and stretched my arms out hugging them all,Kenna came and sat on my lap.I gave her baciare on the cheek and tickled her.
I looked at Ronnie who was still upset,but I smiled and looked at her,"Princess,"I said.
She looked at me once,
"How about we go to the ice cream negozio and get some mint Cioccolato ice cream?Ya know te like that,my princess is a chubby princess when it comes to her Ice cream."
Her frown had cracked into a smile,
"Quit,I'm trying to upset!"she laughed as I tickled her.
"Ya know I Amore te guys,You all are what matters the most to me."I hugged them all.
"Are we really going to get Icecream?"Alex asked.
"Hmm...i don't know,oh okay."
"Shot gun!"Yelled alex,then ran out.
"Your mothers with us."
"So she can sit in the back!"he yelled.
At the negozio me and Anna sat together,as the kids ate at a diffrent table.
"I can't believe te made James pay for all that ice cream,"she laughed.
"Well,I did have to pay a 200 dollar fine for them running away like that."
"Still its not fair,but it's funny and I guess that's matters the most."she smiled at looked at me with those big brown eyes.
Looking at her was like looking in to the past from the first time
I met her....or the secondo time because the first time wasn't so perfect.It was amazing to me because she was still the same girl I met years ago.
"Don't te know your absolutely beautiful?"I smiled.
"Wow,that's the first,you usually compliment yourself."she giggled.
"You know thats not true,I tell te that all the time."
"Yea like 15 years fa out of the 19 years we've been together."
"And I'm proud of that."
"What our years o that 15 years fa was the last time te told me I'm beautiful."
"Our years of coarse."
"Well,you did at one time sing a song that told everyone theyre beautiful."
"Because girls like to be called pretty."
"And that why te called me beautiful because other people like it?"
"Oh quit,arguing about how I think your beautiful and baciare me."
So I leaned in and kissed her on the lips,
"That's what makes te beautiful.."I sang in her ear.
