Oh god. This is so uncomfortable right now. What is my dad doing here? He has a confused look on his face as he walks towards me. Colton moves from his side of the car to mine and grabs my hand.
"What are you doing here? You should be in school," my dad says. He doesn't seem angry, just genuinely confused.
"I needed a break, I was feeling stressed," I lie. "What are you doing here?" I look at his hands and he's holding a large envelope.
"I just uh, came to drop off these papers for your mother," he says quietly. At first I wonder what's in the envelope, but then it hits me.
I feel my heart drop into my stomach and I grip Colton's hand tighter. "I'm sorry, kiddo, I thought you'd be at school," he apologizes. I walk forward and snatch the envelope from his hand and his face falls. I feel bad. I hate him for cheating on my mother, but I do miss my father.
I'm about to turn around and go inside with Colton without saying another word, but then we see flashing lights coming down the street.
It's a police car and they stop directly in front of my house. "Fuck," Colton says under his breath.
An officer steps out of the car and makes his way to us. I catch a glance at my dad and his jaw is touching the floor.
"Are you Colton Sommers?" The officer asks Colton. No, please not now.
"Yes," he says.
"You're under arrest for the assault of Penn Cambridge," says the officer, taking out a pair of handcuffs. Colton lets go of my hand and puts his behind his back. The officer reads him his Miranda rights as he cuffs him and leads him to the car.
I'm completely frozen until the officer shuts the door on Colton's face. I try to run towards the car, but my dad stops me.
"We have to do something," I yell at my dad.
"There's nothing we can do here,"he tells me. "We new to follow them to the station." The cop car drives off and I run to my car. Luckily Colton left the keys in the ignition.
"Aimee's inside, tell her what happened and that I'll be back soon," I say to my dad before driving off. I follow the cop car and I can see Colton hanging his head low.
What's going to happen when we get to the station? Are they going to put him in a cell? I know Colton's tough but that's scary, I don't want him to go through that. Will they even let me bail him out? God I hope I have enough money on me to do so.
I follow the car for ten miles before it turns into the police station. I have to park in a different lot and enter through a different entrance.
I enter the station and its quite smaller than I expected. There's a few people sitting in what looks like a waiting room and they're all watching Judge Judy on the small television in front of them.
I walk forward to the front desk where a small tan woman is sitting. She's wearing a uniform but I can't picture her performing police duties due to her small size.
"How can I help you?" She says, very dull, not taking her eyes of of her small computer screen.
"My boyfriend was just arrested and I need to get him out," I say urgently, but she doesn't seem to care.
"Well he's probably going through booking right now, so you'll have to wait, can I have his name?"
"Colton Sommers," I tell her. I begin pacing in front of the desk. I need to get him out of there as fast as possible. I think I'm scared enough for the both of us.
