Lilyana grabbed the phone and ran up to her room. Once she had locked the door, she began rummaging through her desk, looking for the number she needed. Finding it, she flopped down on her bed and dialed. She needed to get out of here and only one person could save her.
John Cena checked the caller id and answered immediately.
"Daddy is that you?" the girl asked in a shaky voice.
John could tell that his little girl had been crying and wanted to know why.
"Lilyana, what's wrong? Did someone hurt you?" he asked.
"Well, um Mama went out with her boyfriend, Marvin and brought him home with her. They had been drinking and I think doing drugs, daddy."
"Baby did they hurt you?" he asked starting to feel the anger rising within him.
"Mama started yelling at me and I yelled back. Then Marvin….." she was starting to cry again.
"What did Marvin do?" John was now totally pissed and his best friend Randy Orton wanted to know what was going on.
"He hit me." Lilyana said in a small voice.
"Uncle Randy and I are on our way. I love you baby girl."
"I love you too Daddy. Please hurry."
John hung up the phone and filled Randy in on what happened.
"Let's go then." Randy said. He was pissed. Nobody puts their hands on his god daughter and gets away with it.
The two best friends headed back to their rooms to make arrangements for the trip. Luckily, they were in Dallas, Texas for a show. Lilyana and her mother lived in Shreveport, Louisiana which was only about 3 hours away.
Meanwhile, 12 year old Lilyana Felicity Antoinette Cena was busy packing her things. She was both excited and scared. She hadn't seen Daddy in over two years. She packed as much as she could into her suite case and backpack. As she was zipping it shut, Marvin started pounding on her door.
"Young lady, open this door right now!" he yelled.
Lilyana hid the suit case and backpack, then went over and unlocked the door. Marvin came storming in angrily. He walked over to her and smacked her across the face, leaving a hand print.
"Owwieeee." She cried out as her hand flew up to her cheek.
"That little slap was just the beginning young lady. When I am through with you, you won't be sitting comfortably for at least a month, maybe even longer." Marvin told the crying girl.
Back at the hotel, John and Randy were just pulling out of the parking garage in John's car.
"If that man hurt my god daughter, I am gonna kill him." Randy grumbled.
"Not if I get my hands on him first." John replied.
Randy turned on some music as they headed towards Shreveport, Louisiana. They managed to complete the 3 hour drive in 2 ½ hours.
John pulled into the driveway and shut the car off. He and Randy got out and stormed to the front door. Once at the door, John pounded on it and Marissa answered.
"John what on earth are you doing here at 2 in morning." The brunette asked.
"I am here because my daughter called me. Apparently she needs me." John replied icily.
"Why I declare, I have no idea what you are talking about John. Lilyana is in her bed where a child her age belongs at this time." Marissa said trying to sound innocent.
"Cut the crap. I know that you have been letting Marvin hit my daughter. Now let Randy and I in or else." John growled. He was getting very angry by this point as was Randy.
"Fine. Come on in if you must." Marissa said while stepping aside.
John walked in, followed by Randy. They headed straight up the stairs to Lily's room and knocked. There was no answer but the two men could clearly hear the sound of a little girl sobbing into her pillow.
As John was about to enter his daughter's room, Marvin came down the hall yelling.
"What do you think you are doing? You have no right coming here."
"Excuse me? I have every right being here when I receive a call from my 12 year old daughter saying you hit her and begging me to come get her." John said confidently.
Randy could see that John was losing his patience and decided to intervene.
"Listen Marvin, John and I are going to take Lily with us whether you like it or not." Randy stated. Randy was now in the man's face and not backing down.
John seized the opportunity and walked into Lily's room. What he found did nothing except anger him further. As he walked up to the bed, he saw his little girl lying face down, sobbing into her pillow. He sat on the edge of the bed and put his hand on her back. The little girl jumped and let out a cry of pain. This upset and surprised John. He removed his hand and lifted her shirt to reveal a very bruised and welted back. He gasped.
"Don't worry my little flower; Daddy is getting you out of here." John said calmly to his crying child.
By this point, Randy had dealt with Marvin and was walking up to them.
"Oh my God, John. What has that piece of crap done to her?" Randy asked angrily.
"I don't know but I am getting her out of here. She is never coming back here. Can you grab her things while I carry her to the car? We need to get her to the hospital." John asked his best friend as he gently picked his daughter up.
Randy gather the suitcase and bag the child had packed and then grabbed her favorite tiger blanket and tiger stuffed animal. As John carried Lily, Randy carried her things to the car. Lily just laid in her daddy's arms, sobbing. John tried to comfort her as he carried her. Once he had her in the car, he turned to Randy.
"Can you stay here with her while I speak with Marissa?"
"Of course, John but be careful. Don't do anything that you might regret." Randy told his friend.
