William

"I...call Alexander to the stand!" Zoey called out. 

It wouldn't help though...we weren't trying to prove Rory's innocence...we were trying to prove Charley's innocence. I waited through it, most people, if not everyoe was still unconvinced by the end of Alexander's witness. I mean come on! We had all seen what that vampire had done to Charley before. It would be a very long time before I could accept the concept of Charley actually being in love with one of the enemy. 

However, I do NOT believe that Charley is a spy! The poor girl just fell in love for goodness sake! That didn't make her a spy. Would the Atlantians really have sent her here if she was bad or currupted somehow? NO! Lucy clutched my hand tightly as Marc got up to continue his case. I pulled her close, and kissed the top of her head  as she leaned up against me. Then she looked up at me as if to say, "How could they be doing this?" 

That was the last straw, I just couldn't take it any more. I stood up and confronted Marc. "Marc, how could you do this? Do you seriously think that the Atlantians would send us someone who we can't trust? I know you don't like the idea of Charley loving a vampire. I know you find it hard to believe that a vampire could be good. Frankly, neither can I! However, from what I have seen Charley has given us every reason to trust her, and only this one not to. Also, if she were spying on us, don't you think she could have found a more secretive way of doing it?" I paused for a minute then began again, this time looking at each and every individual in the room. "I don't know about the rest of you but I think this whole trial is completely wrong, and I am not going to take any more part in it." With that I turned my back to my astonished audience and walked briskly out of the room.

The End
