It seemed that ever since the day I had one night to just let go and forget all my problems, my problems decided to pile up and then come crashing down around me. Last night I was visited by my dad. Again. He had come looking for a crystal saying that if he had it, it would help him protect me. I had told him I had no idea of a crystal and he left. The next day I went to the old house to get my jacket and found him searching every part of the house for that crystal. I decided not to say anything and got in my car and left. I couldn't trust him. I knew that and its not that I didn't believe that. Its that I didn't want to. I wanted to believe his words. I wanted to believe that he was really here for me and nothing more. But as the days went on I slowly realized I couldn't. That fact made it all worse.

Right now though I had no other choice then to talk to my dad when he requested. At this point I couldn't avoid him. So I'm heading to an open field on the edge of town. Which is yet another thing that made me uneasy about him. Even though the circle knew about his presence he still requested I not tell anyone when I was going or if I was meeting him. Of course I told Adam.

As I slowly pulled up to the field I could see him leaning up against a tree.

I slowly made my way to where he was standing.

"Cassie, I'm glad you came" he said not meeting my eyes

"Yeah, what's this about?"

"I wanted to talk to you about that crystal" I sighed of course.

"I already told you I have no idea where you would find that crystal"

"I know but I think you can help me. Since I don't have my powers and you do maybe you could find it."

"look I don't know how to help you and I don't know where it is, isn't there some other way you could keep me safe?" I asked crossing my arms over my chest.

He then looked frustrated. Probably not wanting me to see his expression he looked down to his feet.

"Unfortunately, I don't believe there is." he said his voice steady but cracking at the end.

I nodded, "Well I guess there's nothing you can do then."

I started to walk away but he grabbed my arm forcefully and spun me around to look at him.

"Your gonna help me find that crystal. I told you it will save you and it will, you and your little circle and I cant do that if you wont help me!" his voice was getting louder and the grip he had on my arm was getting stronger.

I whimpered and tried to get free from his grip but it wasn't working.

"Do you hear me? Once I get that crystal ill be gone but until I find it you and your circle are gonna have one hell of a life!" he then did something I was even shocked by something that even if I didn't trust him, I thought he would never do. He hit me. He hit me so hard I fell out his grip and into the tree he had forced me against. He had hit me right under my eye.

Tears began to run down my face. Not just because of the pain of the hit. Although it was that to. It was because it was my own father. He looked at me once then walked away back to his car and drove away.

I slowly started to get up. Once I had I ran to my car, tears still streaming down my face and cries escaping my lips, started it up and headed back to my house.

Once I got home I ran to my bedroom and closed the door. I walked to the mirror and saw the giant bruise that was now forming under my eye. After looking at it I began to cry harder but somehow made it to my bed. I pulled the covers up over my shoulders and gripped them close to my body.

After a few minutes I realized the tears and cries weren't going to stop anytime soon and I needed Adam. I carefully pulled out my phone and dialed his number. He answered on the first ring.


"Adam" I chocked out

"Cassie? Whats wrong? Are you okay?"

"Adam… I .. I need you here can you please come over?" I asked through the tears.

"of course Ill be there in 5mintues"

"okay" I breathed in and hit end pulling the blankets back to my chest

After a few minutes I heard the door down stairs open and foot steps running up the stairs. The door then flew open and his eyes instantly locked with mine. I watched his expression change as his eyes found there way to the bruise on my face. It was shock and anger and then it began to soften.

I started crying even harder then and he ran to my side sitting on the bed next to me pulling me to him.

"shhhh shhh its okay its okay" he whispered rapping his arms around me.

"Cassie there's no way in hell I'm ever letting you talk to him again. He will pay for hurting you I promise you that. No one will ever hurt you and not pay for it."

I smiled a little then looked up the tears still streaming down my face.

"why couldn't I listen to you? Why did I want to believe he was actually here for me? God I'm so stupid!"

"Cassie. Listen to me you are not stupid he's your father its ok you felt that way. And if he was smart he would be here for you and you only. He would be lucky to have a daughter as amazing as you."

I smiled and pressed myself against his chest rapping my arms around him.

" I don't know what I would do without you Adam."

He smiled kissing my head. Then tilting my head upward to examine my bruise. He slowly bent down and pressed his lips ever so lightly under my eye just like I had done back at the house after his fight with Jake.

I smiled and laid my head back down on his chest.

" I don't know if you realized, but I love you Adam."

"I love you too more then anything."

Being in his arms made the pain disappear for awhile.
