Owner-"It's a pleasure to have you and your team . I hope Madam Tussands proves to be everything you're expecting."
The heavy set female owner said before she shook Zak's outstretched hand firmly. Zak gave a friendly smile, looking over at the haunted building over the woman's short stature.
Zak-"I'm sure we will. Be back to lock us down at sunset."
He said and she gave a curt nod before heading back to her white Buick that remained parked on the far side of the parking lot. Zak watched her fade into the setting sun before turning his eyes to Aaron and Nick that slowly began to unload the equipment stuffed in the back of the Ghost Adventure's van. It had been two years since Lillian's death. Two years since his world had crumpled and he had to rebuild everything out of nothing. Now, Ghost Adventures was on its third successful season and Zak had finally completely recovered from the birth of his daughter after months of physical therapy and multiple reconstructive surgeries.
He was left permanently sterile from the birth, and nearly bled to death from the rupture of his testicular sack. The plastic surgeon had done all he could to save his male genitalia and although he was able to reconstruct Zak's intestines and almost his entire penis, both of his testicles had been too damaged to be saved. Losing his ability to have children didn't bother the ghost hunter much considering the fact he already had the perfect one, and the woman he wanted to spend the rest of his life with was no longer by his side. So being two eggs down of a sausage breakfast didn't bother him.
Hearing the small voice cry out for him, Zak quickly spin on the ball of his foot and faced where the sound had came from only to look down at the small abnormal eyed girl staring up at him. The child beamed up at him with her arms outstretched towards him and Zak grinned down at his daughter who looked like she had been playing in the Nevada dirt.
Zak-"God kid you're covered in desert grime!"
Zak said with a laugh and brushed away the brown that covered her clothing in various places before picking her up and letting her rest on his hip. His stomach muscles tightened and Zak felt a tinge of pain surge through his belly button. Even two years later, his stomach still refused to return to its previous "wash board" status and he was constantly plagued with bouts of agonizing cramps from giving birth, but to Zak, it was all worth it.
Zak-"Whatchu got there Lilly?"
He asked his daughter as she played with something in her hands, hiding it from his sight before she looked up at him with her mismatched eyes. Her left eye was a mesmerizing shade of blue; her mother's blue, while the right was a deep forest green that belonged to Zak. All of Lilly's features reminded Zak of her mother and although it was hard to look into that familiar face every day, she brought happiness into his life that had been missing since Lillian's death, and he could withstand all the pain in the world for his little girl.
Lilly-"Daddy gonna hunt ghosts!"
She said excitedly and Zak smiled before laughing when Aaron made a face at Lilly and she laughed wildly.
Zak-"Yes daddy is."
He answered and turned his marbled orbs down to her before suddenly a purple blur exploded into his face faster than his eyes could focus. Zak bridled slightly, pulling his child's small hand away from his face so he could see the item she was attempting to show him.
Lilly-"The lady said this would protect you."
Lilly said and opened her hand to revile a small purple bulb that had broken away from a larger flower. Zak took the bulb in his hand and rolled it between his callused fingers, looking at the intricate details of the petal.
Zak-"What lady Lilly?"
He asked in a stern voice. She knew better then to talk to strangers.
His daughter said, pointing excitedly over his shoulder and back towards the van doors that swung with the wind. Zak's body turned and his head jerked to the location of where his daughter had been pointing only to see a faint outline of a woman with blue eyes fade away into the dry air. Zak smiled to himself and gently clasped his hand over the flower; a Lilly.
