"You lied to us Mitch" Will said as he, Mitch and Lilly were in the interrogation room the next day.
"Whoa, lied? What are you talking about?" Mitch asked.
"We found out that you showed up to Sara's sister's sweet 16 that night wanting to see Adam" Lilly replied.
"It's not what you think" he said.
"Really, then do care to explain."
Mitch became quiet for a minute before he spoke. "I didn't say anything about that earlier because I know it would look bad enough on my part" he said.
"Why did you go there that night then?" Will asked.
"I went there that night to talk to Adam. To make him see that well, make that; I thought what he was doing was a mistake" he replied.
"What mistake would that be?" Lilly asked.
"Throwing his future away. I mean I may not be his dad but I kept my eye on him as a promise to his mom" he said.
The men walked out of the hall and headed down the hallway so no one wouldn't hear their conversation.
"Bro what the hell are you doing here?" Adam asked.
"I think you're making a big mistake" Mitch replied.
"What are you talking about?"
"I was thinking about it and I can't let you throw everything away for a baby just yet" he said.
Adam looked baffled at this revelation. "I thought you were with me on this" he said softly.
"I am and Sara is a great girl I know that and hell you know that but for what it's worth I don't think you guys raising a kid would be such a great idea" he said.
"I hope you're not suggesting what I think you're suggesting you know how Sara feels about that."
"Dude, all I'm saying is use adoption to help the baby have a safe and secure home" Mitch said.
"I guess you're right" Adam said. "As much I hate to say it, I don't want to have the responsibility just yet. I hope Sara understands that."
"You better bet your ass she hopes" a voice interrupted them. They looked and saw Katie standing there along with the boys at the bottom of the stairs.
With Sara's camera in hand.
End of flashback.
"Katie had her sister's camera?" Will asked incredulously.
"Yep and I just left after that. I went home and went to bed early. The next day I got a call saying my best friend died" he said.
"What's going on?" Katie asked as she saw Scotty and Nick walk into her apartment later that afternoon.
"Looks like you were with Adam that night" Nick replied.
"I don't know what you're talking about" Katie said, crossing her arms over her chest.
"You were there at the stairs where Adam fell to his death and it turns out you had your sister's camera with her" Scotty said.
"I only took her camera because she asked me to hold on to it" she said.
"That's not what we heard."
Katie looked at the detectives nervously before she walked over to the window. She stared out into the neighborhood, knowing that this may be the last time she'll ever get to see it for a good while.
"I didn't mean to hurt him" she said softly.
"But you did" Nick said.
"Because he was going to hurt my sister" she cried out. "I was going to threatened him by telling my mother but I didn't mean for it to get out of control…"
It was only Adam and Katie at the bottom of the stairs and a second ago Mitch left the hall. Katie had a death glare set on Adam while he looked a bit nervous.
"Want to explain what that was all about?" she asked.
"I rather not go into it, especially with you" he replied as he headed upstairs.
"You were going to bail on my sister, were you?" Katie hissed as she followed him until they both got to the top of the stairs.
"Look while it may not be any of your business, but I think that it would be for the best if Sara was to give the baby up for adoption" he said.
"You know how much that would devastate her? Yes she's worried about becoming a teen mom and ruining her life but that doesn't give you the right to go ahead and decide what's best for her" she said.
Adam looked at Katie with a shocked expression. "I'm not deciding for her" he said.
"Oh really? Then maybe you should've thought of that before you knocked up my sister" she said coldly.
"Then maybe you should stop being a complete bitch to her. She didn't do anything to you she loves you but what do you give back in return? Being a complete cold heartless bitch" he snapped.
He started to walk away when Katie grabs roughly on his arm. He lost his balance and falls to the side and tumbles down the stairs. On the way down, he grabs the camera out of Katie's hands as he tumbles down. His body lands at the bottom of the stairs in a weird position and the camera goes off.
Katie lets out a gasp as she runs down the stairs and grabs the camera before taking off down the hall, leaving Adam's lifeless body behind.
End of flashback
Music-In the fields of Gold by Sting.
Katie is being led out of the apartment by Vera and Scotty in handcuffs.
Mitch is seen walking down the street and entering a building.
Elle is staring at an old picture of Sara and Adam together as she is in the living room.
Lilly is giving Sara back her camera as Sara gives a sad smile while an older man is with her and comforting her.
Will and Stillman are in storage putting away Adam's box which is now labeled CLOSED.
Sara is standing in a room wearing a white dress as a seamstress is putting on the final touches. She looked up in the mirror and sees the spirit of Adam, smiling at her while she returns as well.
Adam takes one last look at Sara before he disappears.
A/n: I decided to make this the last chapter seeing it would be dragging this out for a good while. Hope this is worth the wait.
Also I got another story in the works. Yes it's definitely a Lilly/Scotty pairing and I'm still working out the plot so bear the patience!
Thanks for the support and patience with this story! I'm sorry it took forever to update but what can you do about it?
Signing out for now,
