Cara ~ Together - Card #6

An officer walks you outside.  Brian gets out of the car as soon as he sees you.  The police officer walks away and turns her back to you.

“I can’t live without you, Cara.  You’re making me do things I didn’t want to do.”

“What?”

“Pretty soon it’s going to be too late for me… for us.”

You feel your knees go weak and you start crying hysterically.  Mary and Allyson rush out and guide you back into the store.  They call your mom and she drives over right away.  

The police tell your mother that Brian has left.

“How long will he be locked up for?” she asks.

“We didn’t make an arrest.  He said he was feeling better and wouldn’t come arounds anymore.”

“What? Are you kidding me?” Your mother is practically shouting.

“Look, Mrs. Young, if you’re concerned, you can always get a protection order.” But the officers don’t tell your mom how to do that.  Mary looks up the information online and gives it to your mom.  Your mother’s hand is shaking. “There has to be something we can do…someone we can call.” But no one knows who to call.

You decide to go to court to get a protection order the next morning.

Brian’s Thoughts
I still can’t believe it… the cops try to tell her how much I love her and that she needs to talk to me, but she gets all hysterical and her "friends” take her back into the shop. Deep down she has to know that we should be together. No one could love her like I do.
