I turned around and saw Leon. My body was overjoyed to see him if I didn’t control myself quickly I would have run to hug him. I remembered what happened in his office anger took over me again. Leon walk up to me. He looked stressed out. His eyes were down and tired.


“Kitten……” he called again, Grandma followed him from behind.


“Grandma you’re here” I walk pass him and went to hold Grandma’s hand. Grandma looked at me and patted my cheeks.


“Little Gem….your husband is here” she said with a sad face.


“I don’t have a husband grandma…..see?” I showed her my fingers “do you see any ring on me?” I asked trying


as hard as I can not to cry but my throat was heavy.


“Little Gem….don’t say that… to him” she said again.


“I don’t want to!” I said.


“Gem….. please… sorry” I heard Leon say and the tears broke free from my eyes. I quickly wipe them off, I


hate myself for being such a cry baby.


“I’ll excuse myself” she said and walk towards the living room.


“What do you think you doing?” I asked looking at him with hatred. Seeing him reminds me of my foster parents.


“Gem please….I know I was stupid…..just I want you back home….I’ve missed you” he said


“You missed me?, oh really, all you want is your happiness….have you think of me… promised to find my parents but you’re doing nothing about it. You were the one who asked for space…so am willing to give you all


the space you want” I said about to walk away but he grab me and pulled me in for a kiss. I whine in his hands and broke free from his kiss. I wanted him to know I was dead serious with him and I was really angry and disappointed in him. Immediately I broke free I slapped him.


“No Gem!!!!” Grandma yelled. I watch Leon grow angry his eyes landed on me with sharp gaze and dying era.


“Leon…..son…..” Grandma quickly home his hands. I was confused at first. What’s going on.


“Grandma am fine…..” Leon whispered and grandma was surprised. Leon look at me and gave me a sad smile.


“I’ve found your parents kitten….but I was afraid you’ll be sad if I let you know, I hate to see you hurt see you
