Thorn: Father

I stay quiet when Arch says that. I hadn't admitted one of my father crimes to Arch cause I didn't want her to be scared.

He had been arrested for five thefts, ten assaults and recently a rape. I knew it was true even though he had tried to deny it.

I don't even know why I allowed Arch to still stay here?

Cause you love her silly, my thoughts whisper. I do love her and I'm wondering when she's gonna say it. I hope soon.

I pull her closer to me and she snuggles happily in my arms.

"What do you want to do tommorow?" She asks. "I fancy a normal day out"

"How about the cinema?" I ask looking down in to her cloudy gray eyes.

"Hmm, whats on?" she asks resting her chin on my chest and looking up.

"Well, theres Sherlock Holmes which I've been wanting to see? It's a comady" I tell her.

"That would do perfectly" She looks like she wants to say more but she stays quiet.

"Yeah?" I ask.

"What's the matter with your dad? He looked at me funnily" She mutters letting her head drop but still hugging me.

"He's commited a few crimes, don't worry I'll keep him away" I mutter passing a hand through her hair.

"Okay" She whispers and then I few minutes later shes asleep.

The End
