Chapter 3: Speechless

Ezra POV

My parents stared at me with looks of helplessness, confusion, anger, and disgust.

Mom left the house after my revelation. David left after her. Aria found something to do in the kitchen. Soon, it was just me and my dad.

"Ezra, son, did you ever think about the consequences? You could've been in jail for this!"

"Yeah, well, did you and Mom think of the consequences of your twisted understanding of your infidelity and how it would affect me and Kyle?" I spat out.

"Oh please! Are we starting this again? Ezra, it was fifteen goddamn years ago! And that is so different! I did not start a relationship with my student!" He yelled.

"Does that still matter?"

"OF COURSE IT STILL MATTERS! YOU COULD"VE BEEN FIRED!" He yelled before he left too.

"Damn it!" I yelled before I punched the wall. I turned back to see Aria with her jacket and bag.

"Where are you going?" I asked.

"Spencer's still in the hospital. I thought I'd go see Nina." She said.

"I'll come with you." I grabbed my wallet and keys and left with Aria.

A half hour later, we arrived at the hospital where Spencer was.

"We're here to see Spencer Cavanaugh." I said.

"You are?" The receptionist asked.

"I'm Ezra Fitz." I said. The lady called someone.

"Hi, Mr. Cavanaugh. We have a couple visitors by the name of Ezra Fitz. Is it okay if I let them up...? Ok, thank you."

"You can go up but not for long." Aria took my hand and we got into the elevator.

"I'm sorry about your parents." She whispered. I tilted her chin up.

"If my parents aren't accepting of us, then I want nothing to do with them. You are my life, Aria, I can't lose you. I love you."

She kissed me until the ring telling us we stopped.

We exited hand in hand and walked into Spencer's room. Spencer wasn't there but Toby was with a small bundle in his arms.

"Hi, Toby." Aria said.

"Hey! You just missed her. She still has the bladder of a pregnant woman." I chuckled and went to go see the baby. She was nestled tight against her father's chest with her eyes closed.

"Do you want to hold her, Ezra?" He asked.

Just as Toby went to hand me Nina, a blood curdling scream echoed through the hall. Toby handed me Nina quickly before he went out into the hall.

"Spencer!" He yelled as he crouched over the limp unmoving body of Spencer Cavanaugh.

Aria ran over and I was trying to figure out how to quiet the crying baby in my arms.

Aria's phone rang.

"Ezra, will you get it please?" I dug in her bag until I could find it.

There was a new text message and I opened it.

The bitch had it coming. Miss me? I'm back and this time I won't go down without taking someone down with me.
