Throughout life people will make you mad,
Disrespect you and treat you bad.
Let god deal with the things they do,
Cause hate in your heart will consume you too.

-Will Smith

"State your name" David's Lawyer stated to Lahlani as he stood in front of her continuously walking around in circles. Shortly after they had got started Lahlani had been was called to the stand.
"Lahlani Carterson."

"Please state your legal name not your maiden name."

"Lahlani Fernando"

"What is your relationship with the defendant?"

"H-he is my husband."

"Can you please explain how during the accident my client lost control of the car. I mean he was a police officer and made his way up to detective. For him to be in the driver seat half the time as an officer he would have to of had to been a bit of a professional after all these years."

"Um I remember yelling at him to stop the car then I don't remember anything after that."

"Okay than let's get into that day. My client claims that you went with him willingly and that he did not kidnap you in anyway. Is this true?"

"No its not true." Lanlani says furrowing her eyebrow. Ready to raise her voice but she calmed herself.

"My client says you told him how much you wanted to go home with him and how happy you were that he finally had found you. Is this true?"

"No I mean yes wait no."

"Yes, no? which is it one of those claims are a lie which is it yes or no?"

"Yes I said those things but only because he had a gun pointed at me. I just lied I was trying to get him to lower his gun and hand it to me. He was not in the right mind at the time I didn't know what he might've done. Their was no telling on rather or not he would've killed me. He was drunk I know when he is and I could smell it when he was standing right in front of me and could smell it when he made me get in that car. I know the smell from many years of experience." Lahlani says shuffling in her seat.

"Okay let's go back to before you left before you came to this town back when you were with the Mr. Fernando. The night you fled Arizona. My client claims and has the scar including medical records to prove that you stabbed him in the shoulder any higher you could've permanently damaged his arm to were it could no longer be of use. Which means you assaulted an officer..."

"You claimed that it was self-defense. But if it was why run? Mr. Fernando says that their was no abuse. And that he had no drinking problem... Rather that it was you who had a drinking problem. That, that night you stabbed him highly intoxicated." She continues on starring at Lahlani who was getting very angry at the moment of these allocations.

"Yes, I did stab him. But as you had said I could've. As you said I did not damage it permanently did I?... No I did not. Your saying I could've went to the police when in reality you know I couldn't have. Use your head he's a officer you said it yourself. I could've left him unharmed but in the end either way he'd fined me. I mean that is why we are here right now aren't we?." Lahlani say giving Nathan's Lawyer a questionable look.
