part 10 tears of the innocent

# SHANEE . . I woke up to an empty space where daddy laidI started to panic a bit although it was already morning. My eyes were still heavy with sleep so I pulled the bed covers over my head just to protect myself from the unknownI just can't help myself.The nightmare I had felt so real it left me shakingI must have dozed off again cause i was woken up by the sweet aroma of Ricoffy and I just knew daddy brought me breakfast in bed.Hmmm I'm the luckiest girl alive to have a dad like him.what more could a girl ask forlately dad has been spoiling me rotten I don't know whether it's because my birthday is near or whatI really don't mind though except it makes Alice hates me more and I don't like thatall I wish for is someone I can share female staff with you know since my mother is not around.Dad was enough for me before but these days I felt myself longing for a motherly figure more and more someone who could advice me about boys from a woman's perspective and stuff pike that. Dad : Wakey Wakey my princess .I pretended to be sleeping Dad : I know you are awake baby girlwake up and have your breakfast Me : ............ Still I pretended to be sleeping without warning dad started tickling meat first I tried to be strong and not laugh but daddy was just tickling me on the ticklish spots I just couldn't help but laugh Me : I'm awake I'm awake daddy please stop Dad : I'll only stop once you've apologized for trying to trick me into thinking you're sleeping Me : So sorry daddy Dad : I can't hear you .He said in a singing tonestill tickling me Me : Daddy please stop or else I'll pee on myself again .when I said the last part he stopped tickling me I guess It reminded him of my nightmare.we both stared at each other for a while Dad : You know I love you very much princess and I'll so anything for you right Me : Yes daddy I know Dad : Alright baby I just wanted to make sure you know Me : Dad you acting weird are you dying or what? .I asked him as I started to panic I felt my intestines turn in knots Dad : No not at all princess I'm here to stay for many years to come.I want to walk you down the aisle and give you away do the man of your dreams before I leave this earth Me : I'd also love for you to walk me down the aisle and then see your grandchildren .Somehow daddy acted uneasy when I talked about "grandchildren" but he tried to hide it although it was too late cause I had already seen it. Dad : Go and brush your teeth I have an appointment out of townI don't want to be late .I jumped out of bed and went to brush my teeth fast then got back in the guest room daddy was about to finish making the bed so I waited a bit when he was done he took out the throw for me to cover myself as I eat my breakfast. Me : Hmmmmmm yammmmyso delicious. Thankyou daddyyou're a life saver .he nodded and watched me eat and at the end he was forcing me to Dad : Finish up princess I know how you've been skipping your meals these days so today pretending you ate outthere's no escaping me this time .I ate untill there was nothing on the plate after that he took the tray away then came back to the guest room to say goodbye and that he's a bit late so he had to rush.I smiled feeling contend.I then took the longest bath everafter bathing I went to my room to look for clean clothes and to take my books so I can study for my last test on monday. The moment i entered the room I felt a little uncomfortable thinking about the nightmare.My phone rang unexpectedly on my side table it startled me I went to answer itit was my cousin from the village.The king's granddaughterP rimrose Me : Heeey Prim I call her Prim cause she doesn't like it when people call her Primrose or Roseshe thinks it's "dull" Prim : Heeey bitchwhy the silence?.if I don't call you don't callwhat's with the stinking attitude?
