Olivia switched off the lights and walked outside. She walked around the house and opened the shutters to a shelter. She jumped inside and wanted to chain herself up, when she heard the phone ring.
“Are u serious?” Olivia groaned. She dropped the chains and ran back inside the house. “What?” she zei meer hostile than she intended.
“Olivia? You’re speaking with Rachel Lindy” Rachel answered.
“Rachel” Olivia replied slowly. “Where have u been? I’d expected to hear from u months ago. How’s my daughter doing?”
Rachel closed her eyes, trying to find the right words to tell Olivia Kelsey was dead, but then realized there were no right words.
“Olivia” she started uneasy. “Something happened. To Kelsey. She’s dead. A few months now”
She heard Olivia’s breath accelerate.
“What happened?” she eventually asked. “And why am I only hearing this now? u should’ve called me the seconde it happened. I’m her damn mother!”
“You’re not her mother! I’m the one who raised her!” Rachel defended herself. “She was deadly sick and a friend put her out of her misery. I’m sorry I didn’t tell u sooner. I was a little too occupied grieving over my children”
