Not Guilty- Continuation of Chapter 5
“What is the meaning of this? I am Josh’s mother” said Annie as she was uncuffed and asked to sit down at the station.
“Tell that to your husband” said the officer”What do you mean by that?””Well, what do you think? That we just came over and arrested you? Elvin Patel, he filed a case against you so, I advice you call your lawyer” Annie just stared at him as he put away files on his desk, she had absolutely no idea what to say.
At home, everyone was having a really hard time figuring out who called the police.”Must’ve been one of the neighbors” said Melanie.
“I don’t think so mom, they probably do not even know what happened. We have to get Annie out of there mom, as soon as possible.
Or she might really lose her mind. We barely managed to keep her after Maureen’s death, now its her own son and she’s in jail””Calm down Erica, getting worked up won’t help any of us.
Where is Elvin?””He’s in his room. He must be really shattered. Losing his son and having his wife arrested””We should at least cook for him” she said, Erica nodded.”Dont worry, I’m not hungry” he said.
He had walked in then.”Are you going to the station?””No Erica, I’ll just see her in court””Wait.
What do you mean by you’ll just see her in court?””She committed a crime, she has to pay” he said.
“Have you gone mad Elvin? She’s your wife””So what mother? She never wanted to have a child, all she needed was a chance to eliminate him and she succeeded””Are you… Are you serious right now?””Yes Erica.
And I’ll make sure she rots in jail for this so there’s no need to get her a lawyer”
