Don't worry I'm nor killing anyone off, yet...
Great Mom isn't picking up her phone, if I give birth in the middle of this street I will have to murder her. Oww, this baby sure does kick hard. Shit, that hurts.
I was bent over in the middle of the street, with no one even stopping to help me.
"Excuse me miss, are you ok? Do I need to ring someone for you?"
Who was this guy? He looked about the same age as my Mom but he looked familiar.
"Yeah I'm fine, thanks for- ow shit"
"Please just let me take you to a hospital or something or do you want a coffee?"
"A coffee sounds good ,thanks"
"The names Gerard, Gerard Way"
Now that name did sound familiar. I just won't bring anything up, I don't want to sound like a freak.
"Hi, I'm Amy. Amy Iero"
"Hi, I'm Amy. Amy Iero"
Wait Iero? She can't be, but then again how many people have the last name Iero. What do I say to her, my daughter. I haven't seen her in 17 years. What am I supposed to do?
"So you're related to Frank Iero?"
"Umm yeah he's my uncle, do you know him?"
"Yeah he's in my band"
"Oh yeah you're the lead singer, right? I sing a little myself"
Wow she takes after me, her red hair, no piercings, her brown eyes and she even sings.
"Cool, maybe you could come round my house sometime and sing something for me"
I didn't sound perverted, did I? She doesn't know who I am, she must think I'm after young meat or something.
"Sure I'd love to! Maybe you can take me now, I mean I'm not busy and it's not like I have anywhere to go. Moms not answering her phone so no shopping today"
Did she not know what had happened? Did no one even think to tell her? When I get home I'm going to tell her everything, about who I am, my life and about her mother.
"Oh that's to bad, well I will ring Frank later and ask what's happening"
Should I be doing this? If Maria found out she would kill me. Or even worse, take Maria away forever. Forever is a long time, I don't think I would be able to cope. Not without my family. Not without Maria.
"So should we go for coffee?"
"I'd like that"
Her smile had resembled her mothers, the perfect face, she was just like her. I've got to tell Frank, surely he will be ok with it? I hope.
Incoming call: Gerard
"Hello Mr Iero!"
"What do you want fuck tard ?"
"I do like your use of the word fuck and tard, it is very poetic"
God he could be a jackass when he wanted to be.
"Just carry on Gerard"
"So I'm with a young lady that goes by the name of Amy Iero, any relation to you? Your niece by any chance?"
"Gerard! Get the fuck away from her before you say something you regret"
"Dude, chill. She was in pain so I helped her out and now she is at my house having coffee"
I don't trust him at the minute, he my be my best friend but he's a fucking spiteful prick and he will tell her everything. Well not everything, not the things that are true about him. Just the things that make Maria look bad.
"Put her on the phone"
"Anything you want dude. Amy it's for you"
I could hear the sounds as the phone was being passed to her.
"Hey it's uncle Frank, just be careful around Gerard. He's not himself at the minute, I will come pick you up now"
"No it's fine, he's so sweet. Nothing like that dickhead Bert"
"Wait, what's happened with Bert?"
"He cheated on me with a waitress and then left me"
So he is like Gerard. They don't deserve my family, Maria and Amy are to good for people like that.
"Look sweetie it's ok, don't worry. I will tell your mom when she is out of the hospital"
"What? Hospital? Whats happened?"
"Did no one tell you? Look Gerard will drop you off at the hospital, just ask him to take you to her. I've got to go sweetie, keep safe"
I thought someone told her, I didn't want to be the one to break it to her.
Incoming Text- Penina x
Hi Frank, I know you have probably forgot about me, but I was wondering if you would like to show me around Belleville? I'm a little lost in Salter Place. Penina x
God she was adorable, I can't wait to see her again.
Sure I'd love to help you! Can't wait to see you again, maybe we can grab that coffee? Frank x
With Penina in my life and my family safe, my life was perfect.
Of course he won't reply, he's probably forgot about me. He won't care. Where the hell am I? I've been walking around for half an hour and I still can't get home. I walked into a dark alley, it had the aroma of alcohol and urine, this cant be near home.
"Need some help sugar?"
"No I'm fine thank you"
The figure slowly walked towards me, grabbing my shoulders and pushing me against the wall.
"Oww. Please you're hurting me. Leave me alone "
"I don't think so baby"
"Please. Don't. GET OFF ME! HELP!"
His fist collided with my face as I fell to the floor. Everything went black.
Jesus christ where are you Penina?
I've been driving around the same street for 30 minutes now and still no sign of her. Maybe I should just walk for a bit.
I parked my car at the only house I knew, 69 Salter Place, home of Donna and Donald Way. Surely they wont mind. I set off to look for Penina in the dark streets of Belleville. Maybe I should ring her phone again.
A flash and sudden vibration caught my attention in a nearby alley.
A body lay on the floor, her face covered in blood. The body looked almost lifeless, I needed a closer look.
I examined her face some more. It was Penina.
