Chapter Twelve - "She Likes Strawberries."


Avery's P.O.V

I watch River as she runs around the large backyard, running away from the girl who is chasing after her with a big grin on her face. I lean back in my chair and look around to see everyone crowded in the pool; mostly teenagers who are the kids of half the parents here.

And let me tell you, there are a lot of teenagers here.

"Having fun?" I hear someone ask behind me and I turn around to see a certain person I have been waiting to bump into.

"I can tell River is." I say to Logan as he sits down in the chair next to me. He smiles and glances over at River before looking back at me.

"I asked you though." Logan says and I roll my eyes.

"So far so good, Logan. Just tell your wife to stop glaring at me though and I will be fine." I say and look at Katie who is glancing between Logan and I with curiosity.

Logan looks over at Katie and waves me off. "I told her not to say anything to you but that's the only thing I could get out of her." Logan says and I raise my eyebrow at him.

"And what did you bribe her with? Sex? Would make sense." I say, looking back at River who is now chasing after the girl.

"You think your so funny, don't you?" Logan asks, humor clear in his tone and I flash him a smile.

"Damn straight." I reply and Logan rolls his eyes.

"For your information, I didn't bribe her with sex." Logan says and I glance at him with curiosity.

"So, what did you bribe her with?" I ask and Logan smirks.

"She wanted a dress so I bought it for her. She only gets it after the party though because then I will know that she won't start drama today." Logan says and I roll my eyes.

"Cute." I mutter and Logan raises his eyebrow.


"You two seem so perfect. Happy families, right?" I tease and Logan rolls his eyes.

"Honestly, I would rather be with you any day but you know, I'm waiting for you to confess your love for me." Logan winks and I chuckle.

"You'll be waiting a long time for that day." I say and Logan shrugs, standing up.

"I succeeded once, I can succeed again, Avery." Logan says and I send him a thumbs up, a smile playing on my lips.

"Whatever makes you sleep at night." I say and Logan grins before walking back inside. I notice that Katie is now gone and out of my sight and I sigh in relief.


"Mommy, I need to go to the toilet." River says, running up to me. I nod and get out of my chair, walking inside and making my way up the stairs.

I knock on the bathroom door and after a few seconds of no answer, I open the door and send River in.

"Do you need me to come in?" I ask and River shakes her head.

"I'll be fine." River says as she closes the door and I nod.

"Ill be downstairs, okay?" I call and I hear River yell out an 'okay' and I start to make my way down the stairs.

I bump into someone's back and I quickly apologize before making my way into the kitchen to get a drink. I open the fridge and pull out a bottle of water and sit on a stool, taking my phone out of my pocket.

I notice that I have four messages from my father and I open them, reading them.

Dad: Where the hell are you? Are you kidnapped? Is River with you?

Dad: If you don't reply in the next hour, I'm going to assume that you are dead in some old warehouse.

Dad: Oh never mind, Joshua to

rts to cry again.

"Yep, it's definitely her arm." Logan says and I sit next to him, watching as Sarah tries to calm down River by rocking her and clicking her tongue which makes River smile through her sobs.

Honestly, I don't know how to react when I see River in so much pain. It's like her pain transfers over to me and even though I try my best to help her, it just makes the situation worse. I hate seeing River like this because she is usually the bubbly little girl I have raised.

I think Logan saw the pain on my face because as soon as I bit my lip when River started to cry again, he grabs my hand and rubbed his thumb across it reassuringly.

"Okay, now that she has calmed down a little, I think we should wait a little before asking her. We should take her downstairs and make her some food." Sarah says as River rests her head on Sarah's shoulder. I nod and look at River who is looking anywhere but her arm.

"Strawberries." River mumbles and I can't help but smile when Sarah looks at River with confusion.


"She likes strawberries." Logan and I say at the same time which makes Sarah smile at the both of us. I roll my eyes at River who is grinning at me.

"Well I've definitely got strawberries so I'll get you some, okay?" Sarah says to River and River smiles. I stand up and so does Logan as we follow after Sarah.

"Thanks for helping her." I say to Logan and Logan flashes me a smile.

"I'm here to help." Logan says as we make our way down the stairs. Suddenly, I hear River scream again which makes the smile fly off my face.

"What happened?" I ask, standing in front of River trying to search for what made her cry again. River points to someone behind me.

"She did it!" River screams, tears running down my face and Logan and I both turn around to see the one and only standing in front of us with a small grin on her face.



Oh shit, whats going to happen next? I would like to thank my sister who gave me the idea to write this scene since this book needed more drama.

PLEASE vote and comment! You know the go, people!

Lofd - "Here's the thing, we started out friends. It was cool but it was all pretend. Yeah, since you've been gone."
