The পরবর্তি morning.
Zoey was talking with the mortician, while Alexia was watching cartoons. At least Zoey was under the impression Alexia was watching cartoons. Until her little girl let out a shriek.
Zoey, scared something had happened to Alexia, jumped up and ran into the sitting room. Alexia was staring at the screen.
“Lex, what’s going on? আপনি almost gave mommy a হৃদয় attack” Zoey ব্যক্ত and swallowed a few times to calm down.
“Mommy, come look” Alexia ব্যক্ত breathless. “Uncle Emmanuel is on TV”
Zoey rushed to the টেলিভিশন and increased the volume.
“Last night the police arrested a man named Castiel for the abuse of a four বছর old girl” the newsreader said.
“Alexia, go play outside” Zoey ব্যক্ত trembling.
“Why do they call him Castiel, mommy? His name’s Emmanuel” Alexia ব্যক্ত confused.
“Now!” Zoey yelled and Alexia ran outside.
