              Bella looked around the lake, then sat down in the grass and stared at her reflection in the river.


        "How did you get home that day?" Bella asked.


        "By car, Damien drove us back," Regan replied.


        "I bet it was very late when you got back huh,"


        "Yup, it looked like it was around 12 am,"


        "Damn, I would have been hella scared if my daughter was coming home this late,"

    The sound drew closer and Regan walked out of the forest.


    Bella turned to Regan with a smile, "I'm glad you're back. I have something to tell you, for a while now I developed these feelings for you. And honestly I know this isn't the right time to tell you about all of this but I really-"
