“Daddy,” Lily whispers between gasps and sniffs. “Can you come get me?”
“Lily, are you okay?” I switch ears as I walk out of my office and wave at Edward, letting him know I’m leaving for the day.
The word “Daddy” set off an alarm immediately, as Lily hasn’t called me by that name in years.
“I don’t know. I want to go home.”
“Where are you?”
“I’ll be there in about fifteen minutes.”
“Okay, I’ll be waiting outside Miner’s Landing.”
“Should I call Rachel or Bella?”
“No, I need you. Hurry.”
“I’ll text you when I’m there.”
I second-guess myself hanging up on Lily during the entire drive, hoping she isn’t in any immediate danger. I have no idea what has happened, but I would bet anything it is a boy—a senior boy who has been dicking Lily around.
