She shook her head. They looked petrified. They hugged mom.
"I'm so sorry. I couldn't keep him safe." Mom cried.
"It's not your fault, mom." Nova reassured her, not even knowing what happened.
I took them upstairs and explained to them what had happened with Jack. I explained how Toni pretended to free him, only to slaughter him.
"I just can't believe he's gone."
"I would've been in disbelief too if I hadn't seen it."
"He shot our little brother. In cold blood."
"That son of a bitch." Rage took over Liam. "They're all fucking dead. I'm going to blow all of their fucking brains out. Every last one of them... Starting with you." He pulled the gun into Clarke. Clarke put his hands up in defense.
"Stop! You got it wrong!" I told Liam.
"He's King's son, right?"
"Well, yes, but-."
"That's all I need to know!" He tightened his grip on the trigger. I stood in front of Clarke.
"He's not with them! He's with us! He tried to help us save Jack, and he saved me multiple times!"
"What if it's a set up? What if he's just trying to get an in with us?"
"He's not, okay?"
"How do you know, huh?"
"Because I do. Trust me for once."
Liam slowly lowered his gun.
"I know you're angry. I am too. We can't turn on each other, not now."
"Believe me, I wanna kill my father just as much as you do." Clarke told Liam.
"If you cross us, you're dead." Threatened Liam.
"Didn't expect anything less."
"What are we going to do? We can't stay in the enemies home!"
"Any casualties from today?"
"Got that Michelle bitch pretty good and some other goons, but that's about it. From what we could tell, King was still alive."
"If he's alive then we need to leave. He might come back here to regroup, and he won't be too happy with a house full of Merlin's."
"Where the hell are we supposed to go?"
"I might know a place." Said Clarke.
We led my mom out. She was so dead inside she barely even moved. It was like moving a limp stuffed toy.
I assumed he was taking us back to Wisconsin, but only took us to another abandoned place in the city. It was a storage unit by the docks. The breeze was dry and cold. We followed him out to his cramped storage shed in the dark. It could fit a car in, but that's about it. He unlocked and pushed up the door.
