Me: am just scared i dont want anything that will cause any problem.
Mabel: i know what my dad did was wrong, even my dad later regret it.
Mabel: yeah he regret it, he said that it wasnt entirely your fault.
Me: whose fault?
She bend her head.
Me: wether your dad regret it or not, e doesnt matter, your brother is a cultist and i dont want to associate myself with cultist at all,.
Mabel: is it my bro you are dating or me?
Me: doest it matter, are you not family?
Mabel: and so what does that got to do with me.
Me: you guys are family and anything he do will surely affect the family in one way or the other.
Mabel: so what are you trying to say.
Me: i just want to be alone.
Mabel: wait, are you telling me that you dont want me again?
Me: something like that.
mabel: are you serious?
Me: i dont know, (i remember how i nearly die because of all this cultist thing) i think i am.
Mabel: hmmm, something happen at home, my brother friend was killed 3 hours ago, and i thought i could find some loving hands to lay my burden on, but here you are breaking my heart (she started crying)
