    Payton didn't acknowledge her observation, her shoulders tightening as she braced herself for another onslaught of anger. She was so sure that Henry was going to be angry that she had hurt herself that she flinched, bringing her arms up to protect herself but they only got high enough to her chest. Payton kept her answer to herself, not daring to open her mouth and tell Henry the truth. She was sure that Henry could figure that out for himself.

    Following after him, Payton tried to remain herself to calm down. She wanted to tell herself that henry would never really hurt her but that wasn't the truth and she knew that. Even if she didn't want to admit it. Payton froze when Henry stopped moving, panic filling her. What was he going to do to her? Unable to see him, Payton didn't see the way he swayed on his feet. Instead, Payton could only imagine the worst was about to happen.

    Payton gulped at his request, nodding slowly. "Y-Yeah, I can," she stuttered, hesitating for a moment before she stepped forward, wrapping an arm around Henry's waist before she started helping him up the stairs. Each one took more effort than the last, her legs shaking and hardly able to support herself but she realized that if she didn't, Henry would stay right where he was. He'd wake up in the morning and he'd be angry that she didn't help him. Helping him into the bed, Payton wasted no time in turning on her heel and practically running out of the room. By the time that she reached her room, she collapsed on her bed and openly broke down, burying her face into the pillow that she hugged to her chest.
    "It's okay, baby. I know, it's scary the first few times. But you'll start to enjoy yourself real soon. You'll want me, you'll want to come over and visit because you won't be able to stop thinking about me," Charles murmured, his voice dropping. He smirked as he nudged her thighs open, his gaze dropping to her core. She was his now, there was no escaping that. Charles only hoped that Zada would realize that and that Henry wouldn't fight him too hard on it.

    Leaning forward, Charles inhaled sharply before he tilted his head back. His eyes found hers as he ran the tip of his tongue between her folds. Charles moaned, his arms slipping around her thighs to help support her while he spread her open just a bit more. Teasing his tongue between her lips, Charles would pull away or press his tongue to the side when he neared her clit. No, he was going to have Zada begging him for more before they left this shower.

    The second Henry's head hit the pillows, he was out. He might've already been unconscious while Payton dragged his weight through the hall, he couldn't remember. When birds could be heard chirping outside of his window, he groaned, forcing one eye open. He looked up to the window, his eye squinting as the light poured into the room.

    His head was pounding.

    Barely remembering last night, Henry forced himself to sit up. Looking around his bed, he found it odd that he had slept alone. Or did he? Had Payton disappeared from the bed before he had woken up, like she had yesterday? Realizing that it was Sunday, he knew today would be a bit busier. He'd have to drive up to Charles' cabin to pick Zada up... Maybe he'd leave Payton at home. He missed his other daughter and would enjoy the time alone in the car. He was sure Payton would enjoy having the house to herself for a few hours, too.

    Taking in a deep breath through his nose, he forced himself to his feet and stretched his arms out. Dressing in a pair of jeans and a sports shirt, Henry ran his fingers through his messy hair before doing his best to comb it down. Stepping out into the hall, he realized the house was eerily quiet. There was no sounds coming from anywhere, not the television downstairs, nor the sound of Payton shuffling around.

    "Payton?" He called, immediately heading downstairs because it wasn't like his eldest daughter to sleep in so late. Exploring the living room first, he stepped into the kitchen and slouched his shoulders. She must still be asleep. His eyes caught a bit of green on the ground and he walked over to the back door and bent down to pick up Payton's bikini. Feeling the material of the suit in his hands jarred his memory. Glancing out the back door to the hot tub, he slowly started to remember what he had done. "Fuck..." He let out a deep sigh, hoping he could just pretend it never happened.

    Henry could never apologize, he couldn't admit his wrongdoings. Instead, he tossed the bikini in with the dirty clothes and returned to the kitchen, deciding to make Payton a pile of waffles. He would top them with whipcream and bananas, just like she liked. That would be the closest thing she'd get to an apology.
    Zada tried to relax her hands on Charles shoulders, gripping him tightly so she wouldn't slip as he pried her thighs apart. She bit down on her lip to try and remain quiet as she felt his tongue exploring her, running between all of her folds, but still, he was completely avoiding her clit. His tongue would get so close and out of anticipation, Zada would squeeze his shoulders and breathe in deeply, expecting to feel a rush of euphoria, but nothing. He would stop his tongue right before contact and move it in the opposite direction.

    Before she knew it, she was whining. Glancing down at him in confusion, she could see the devilish look in his eye. He was doing it on purpose. "Ch-Charlie-" she whined, her nails digging into his shoulders. Chewing on the inside of her cheek, she knew just how wet she was becoming, her body craving for just the slightest touch. After a few moments, her cunt was red and her clit swelling slightly, and she couldn't take it anymore. "P-Please, please," her hands slipped up into his wet hair, and she wondered if that was okay, as her hands tried to nudge his head, tried to guide him to where she wanted him. "Not fair," she gasped, feeling his tongue bypass her clit once more.

    As exhausted as she was, Payton had struggled to sleep. She would wake with a start, afraid that Henry was right there, just wanting to fuck her again. She'd lay awake for hours before eventually managing to fall back asleep. She went around in circles like this, exhausted and desperately needing to sleep but she couldn't get more than a few moments of decent sleep. Her face was still swollen and red, her body sore and aching as she watched the sunrise ever so slowly. She knew that Henry would wake eventually but she couldn't bring herself to care. She didn't have an ounce of energy as she laid in bed, on her side because it was the only slightly comfortable position for her to be in.

    When she heard her name called, Payton visibly flinched and buried herself into the mattress beneath her. She prayed that he would think she was still sleeping and leave her alone. The thought of facing him right now sent her heart racing, she just wanted Henry to leave her alone. Tears welled in her eyes and she sniffled, reaching up to rub at her eyes. Payton was tired of crying, her eyes were sore. She didn't want to keep doing it but she felt like she had no choice.

    Payton hadn't even managed to convince herself to shower off. She could feel his cum dried on her thighs and she wouldn't be the least bit surprised if there was blood mixed in with it. Laying in it, naked beneath her covers, just made her feel even more disgusting. Payton tugged her bottom lip between her lip, trying to keep her breathing slow because if she started panicking, there was no way Henry would think she was still asleep.

    Holding her breathe when Henry's footsteps neared her door, Payton screwed her eyes shut as she prayed that he would just peak inside before leaving her alone.
    Charles nearly laughed at the whining that Zada did. He had thought it would take a bit longer but he was far more pleased than he was going to let her know. Pulling away from her just enough to speak, his breath teased over her clit. It was the only relief that she would receive until he was content that Zada needed him as badly as he needed her. "Oh, sweet girl. You're going to have to do better than that," he teased, one hand sliding away from her thigh. Fingers wrapping loosely around his cock, his movements were lazy because he certainly didn't want to cum under his own touch.

    "Tell me. What do you want, sweet girl?" Charles murmured, pressing a few, lazy kisses along her thighs. It was enough that he hoped it was serving its purpose. Teasing her and making her a desperate little girl who wanted nothing more than what Charles was ready to give her. He sat back on his heels, letting the water run over his shoulders. "Wanna hear you say it."

    Henry waited a few moments at the bottom of the stairs, and when Payton never showed, he sighed. Chewing on his lip, he returned to the kitchen and grabbed the plate of waffles stacked high, a mountain of whipped cream on top. Packing it upstairs, he called her name once more before lightly knocking on her door.

    Pushing it opened, his daughters room was still dim and dark besides how bright it was outside. The curtains were still drawn tightly to keep the sun out It wasn't a surprise, knowing what he had done to her, she probably was exhausted and still in pain. He imagined she'd be sore, walking would even be a problem. "Baby?" He said in a quieter voice, closing the door behind him as he entered. Sitting down gently on the edge of her bed, he slowly laid a hand on her leg, feeling her underneath the blanket. "Breakfast in bed? Waffles just like you like, whipped cream, bananas and all? I made them from scratch." He knew she hated the frozen packaged ones.

    Leaning over her, he pulled the cover down from her face, seeing her with her eyes shut tightly. Her face was swollen, especially around her eye. It was red and bruised and Henry couldn't remember how that had happened. Had he pinched her? He felt his heart break, tears begin to burn his eyes. He was a horrible father. "Baby..." He breathed, gently brushing her face, his thumb lightly running over the bruise. "We're gonna have to keep you out of school for a few days."
    Zada shivered, her legs trembling from the excitement she felt in her core and from the pain she still held from their hike. Her body was exhausted and as she tried to reach back out for Charles, she was afraid she might buckle and fall. "D-don't stop," she begged, feeling some weird urge within her, a craving for Charles to continue what he had been doing. "Th-thats not fair, it felt so good..." She felt disgusting, still, but it was easier to ignore that part of her.

    Looking down at Charles, she couldn't help but find him attractive. Which was weird to think about, considering he looked just like her father, just with more hair. His beard was slicked down from the shower and so was his hair, pushed back away from his face and the look in his eye. He was trying to string her along. He wanted her to beg for him, that much was obvious.

    "Please, Charlie, please..." Her hands slid down his shoulders, finding where his hands rested on her thighs as he sprinkled kisses along her legs. She tried to drag his hands further up, closer to between her legs. "Please keep touching me..."

    {FROZEN WAFFLES ARE THE DEVIL'S WORK OK}

    Payton gulped when the bedroom door closed and she prayed silently that he would see that she was still 'sleeping' and he would leave her alone. She flinched when Henry's hand settled over her leg, her eyes slowly opening. Her breathing quickened as she curled in on herself, trying to remain calm in his presence. She was afraid that if she started freaking out, it would only serve to upset Henry and that was the last thing she wanted right now. If she had been able to see, Payton might have cried at the finger marks around her neck. They weren't very prominent but it was enough that it you could probably guess what had happened.

    The thought of eating just made her stomach churn. Payton wasn't the least bit hungry, she had no desire to eat. Not even her favourite breakfast. But she would force herself to eat because the thought of doing anything else made her skin crawl. Payton hesitated before she started to twist around on the bed. She winced as she rolled onto her back before facing him, nodding at his words. Payton didnt' quite like the idea of staying home because at least at school, she had a break. If she was staying home, Payton didn't know what Henry would end up doing to her.

    "Okay," Payton forced herself to speak. Clutching the blanket to her chest, Payton curled in on herself. "Sitting hurts," her voice was hoarse as she spoke, from how hard she'd cried for the better part of the night. "C-Can.. can you feed me?" She tested, hoping the request would help ease Henry's feelings. She was sure he was ready to hurt her again so she tried to be submissive.
    Charles wasn't quite happy with the way that Zada was begging him but there would be more time to work on that later. It wasn't as if this would be Zada's last visit here, he wouldn't let it be. Now that she was in his grasp, she was his. He wondered if she realized that yet. Leaning forward, Charles indulged her. He smirked, his eyes fluttering shut. He moved his tongue tortureously slow, from her entrance upward - toward her clit. Slowly circling around it, the movements continued to get tighter until his tongue brushed against the sensitive little bud.

    Moaning, Charles pressed his tongue flat against her, giving slow, deliberate strokes of his tongue. He was careful as he started to press two fingers into her pussy. Charles' hand tightened over his cock, his rhythm matching his tongue on her cunt.

    {THEY REALLY ARE ITS LIKE PLASTIC}

    "Of course, sweetie." He frowned, picking the plate up and moving to where he was sitting next to her. Henry felt like a monster and just looking at Payton confirmed that he was. All he could remember was the sex and sure it had been rough, enough to scare her and tire her out, but her neck and her face... It wasn't coming back to him. Almost wanting to ask her, Henry decided against it. How could he do that to his sweet baby girl?

    Forcing his eyes away from her, Henry cut a small bite of waffles, making sure to get a little cream and a slice of banana for her. "Open up," he whispered, before guiding the fork into her mouth. "How about after breakfast, I help get you into the bath?" Before the words could even leave his mouth, he saw how Payton had tensed up, a look of fear appearing across her face.

    He really fucked up.

    "I promise, I won't hurt you." He knew how that must've sounded... "No funny business," he cleared his throat, feeling like less of a man. What kind of father gets off on beating his child? "Is it good?" He asked as he cut another bite, knowing it had been awhile since he had made them for her. "Perfect fluffiness, I hope?"
    Zada was almost starting to actually enjoy herself, until she felt his fingers circling her opening before slowly pushing in. The whine she made was involuntary, as was the pathetic look of pain on her face. Her cunt felt raw, sore from the attention it had received hours prior. "P-please stop," she begged, trying to move away from him before she could even think about what she was doing. He couldn't have liked that... "I-I... I'm sorry!" She flinched, not entirely sure why she expected him to lash out at her. "It, it's just s-sore, it hurts."

    Pressing her back against the shower wall, she was afraid to look down at him. Terrified that she'd see an angry expression on her face. Zada wondered if he was regretting having her here. "I'm being a baby, I-Im sorry." Maybe this was how it was supposed to feel and she just needed to accept it.

    Payton's shoulders were curled in on herself even as she laid beneath the covers. If Henry decided to even lift the blanket up, he would see that she was still naked and she had no idea how he would react. She had understood after that fateful night that Henry always had the last say in what happened but she had never thought he would go as far as he had the night before. She forced her lips to open and she took the bite of food, chewing ever so slowly as if she was trying to savour the bite.

    Henry hadn't even gotten halfway through his question before Payton tensed. Her face scrunched as her bottom lip quivered before she managed to reign in her emotions. Payton wanted nothing more than to tell Henry no, that she just wanted to sleep, that she could get to the bath on her own but if she told him no.. Payton shuddered, wondering how angry he would get if she said no. No matter how valid the reason was, Payton didn't think Henry would care. She didn't need to find out to know that pissing Henry off was one of the last things she wanted to do. Despite her regret, Payton nodded her head.

    "They're perfect," her voice cracked as she spoke, her head lowered as she took another bite of the food. Payton had to force herself to swallow, not wanting to seem ungrateful by turning away the food he had made for her. "T-Thank you," she mumbled, her grip tightening on the blanket as if she was expecting Henry to reach for it at any moment.
    Charles frowned for the first time since he'd been with her. He pulled away from her core, his brows pulling together as he looked up to watch her form. Zada looked afraid and he knew that she should be because Charles never had taken kindly to being told no. No one had gotten away with it before and they certainly weren't about to now. He let out a low sigh as he shook, shaking his head as he set his hands on her thighs.

    "It's going to be sore, it will hurt, sweet girl. Especially since it was your first time earlier but how do you expect to start being able to really enjoy yourself unless you let me show you what I'm capable of?" He scolded her, his thumbs brushing small designs into her skin. "Growing is going to be hard. It'll be scary and it'll probably even hurt. But you want to be a big girl, don't you? You want to make me proud?"

    No matter how badly Henry wanted to reach out, to apologize, to wrap her up in his arms, he couldn't. Any of those actions would put the blame on him, it would be acknowledging the fact that he had done something wrong and he couldn't do that. He finished feeding her the pancakes, sliding the plate to her nightstand table. He noticed how she wrapped her fingers tightly around the blanket and he wondered if that was her way of keeping a barrier between them. It wouldn't help anything, but he couldn't blame her for trying.

    "My little honey bee," he frowned, moving to where he was lying next to her, bringing his legs to stretch out on her bed. Rolling on his side, Henry propped himself up on his elbow. He was in no rush to usher her to the shower, she didn't seem ready to get out of bed. "Last night was rough, but you know I love you." He placed his hand on her stomach, barely feeling her under the covers. "Come here, let Daddy hold you. You can stay under the blankets, but let me..." He wrapped his arms around her and pulled her to his chest. The blanket fell down her back lightly and Henry's hand ran down her bare skin. She was still naked.

    Sighing, he enjoyed how his fingers felt as they grazed down her skin. Her skin was so soft and smooth, so youthful. "Today we can just lay around and be lazy and just relax, and when I go to get your sister, you can stay home, okay?"
    Zada flinched when he berated her, focusing on his words when he mentioned what he was capable of. She could take that so many ways. "You're right, y-you're right, I'm sorry." Her hands rose until she could cover his hands with her own, gently squeezing them where they rested on her thighs. "I do want to make you proud, I do-" Zada looked down at him and she hated the look in his eye, but not because she was afraid of him. He looked so angry, but she also found disappointment in his eyes. "I want to make you happy, I want you to want me, so... So I can keep coming here."

    It was the truth, even Zada was beginning to tremble all over. Tears burned her eyes for a different reason, afraid Charles would get so mad at her that he'd call Henry and make him come get her a day early. "You make me feel so good," Zada meant that, she enjoyed when he praised her and complimented her. Shaking, she took a step closer to him, "P-please don't make me leave, don't call Daddy to come get me." A tear fell down her face. "I am a big girl," she insisted, "I'll take it, I-I can take it..." Her blue eyes were fixed on his as she tried to stop her bottom lip from shaking.

    Payton felt the dip of her mattress, listening to the way Henry stretched out beside her. Her blood ran cold as she closed her eyes, her grip loosening on her blanket. She was sure that Henry was about to ask for more and she kept her eyes shut, trying to brace herself for what was coming. Her opinion was completely skewed because last night had been so traumatic, she didn't know what Henry would or wouldn't do to her anymore.

    Being pulled against Henry's side, Payton felt another wave of emotion wash over her. She wanted to curl up against him, wanted to start crying, and just let it all out. Henry was her father, he was always going to be a sense of comfort to her. But how could she find comfort in Henry, when his actions were what upset her in the first place? It felt wrong.

    Payton only just started to manage to calm down as Henry teased her side. The methodic touch was enough to force her to calm down, her body starting to calm down beside him. The offer for her to stay home was a surprise to her, she couldn't remember the last time that Henry had let her stay home all by herself. "Okay," Payton voiced softly, biting down on the inside of her lip. She wasn't about to argue with him over that offer.

    She knew that she couldn't avoid the idea of getting into the bath forever, even if she wanted to. Payton bit back a sigh as she lifted her head, biting back a sigh. "Shower now?" She whispered, reluctant only because she was sure that Henry would want to help her bathe.
    Charles started to calm when Zada spoke, realizing that she was just nervous. Of course, she didn't know what she was doing. That's why he was here. He needed to show her how to navigate this new world that Zada was just having her eyes opened to. He smiled at her, shaking his head as he leaned down to capture her lips in a heated kiss. Sighing as he pulled away, Charles leaned his forehead against hers. "It's okay, sweet girl. You just gotta be brave when it's uncomfortable or you don't like it. It'll start to feel good. Isn't that what you want?" He asked, tilting his head to the side.

    Turning to shut the shower off, Charles' shoulders sagged. He lifted himself back up before turning toward her. He held his hand out to her after he'd stepped out. "C'mon. Let's get dressed and then we can head down to eat, how's that sound?" He smiled, his hand sliding around to her lower back, guiding her out of the bathroom.

    ~sunday afternoon~


    The drive up to the Charles' cabin was roughly an hour's drive from the town. It gave Henry plenty of time to think and come up with multiple excuses to tell Zada about why Payton would be staying home from school the next few days, also why it looked like someone had beaten the shit out of her. The last thing he wanted was for his youngest daughter to think he was a monster, because currently, Henry didn't think she knew anything about what he was doing to Payton.

    When his car rolled up to the cabin, Henry put it in park and cut the engine. Looking up at the cabin made a shiver run down his spine. He couldn't help but recall what he had helped his brother do all of those years ago. That girl was still buried somewhere in his backyard, nothing but bones by now. If those were still left. Unfortunately for him, Henry had known the girl's parents. They had a young son that Henry used to see frequently when he coached the middle school football team. It had been rough seeing them cry and reminisce about their daughter, and that was partially why Henry had to cut ties with his brother. He didn't know if he could handle being forced into a situation like that again. Even now, just knowing Zada had been alone with him for a whole weekend turned his stomach. There was a difference between Henry and Charles, even if they were both horrible men. Charles would kill and not think twice about it, he found pleasure in it.

    Stepping out of the car, he hurried up to the front porch, wanting to retrieve Zada as quickly as he could. Payton was left all alone back home and while he was sure she was fine and enjoying the quiet time, he wanted to get back into town as fast as possible. He had mentioned something to her about maybe being gone a bit longer than he normally would, wanting to spend some time with Zada before school tomorrow, but at least if he was back in town and something horrible happened, Payton could call him. He had no cell service out here. Knocking loudly against the door, Henry called through, "Charles? Zada? Come on, I'm in a rush."

    It was only a few moments later that the door jerked open and there stood his twin brother, a shit-eating grin on his face as he greeted Henry. "Hey, Char-" Henry smiled, going in for a half arm hug, until he paused, seeing Zada behind his shoulder. Something had happened to her. There was a weird blank stare in her eye, and she looked like she had been crying. It felt like a rock had hit the bottom of his stomach. Pushing past Charles, Henry grabbed Zada's hand and pulled her out onto the porch, taking her bag from her. "Sweetie, go get in the car." He handed her the key, watching as she did what she was told. Turning back to Charles, his hands were already balling into fists, his jaw clenched tightly. "Charles... What the fuck did you do?"

    Zada looked over her shoulder as she quietly climbed into the car, hearing her father's voice raising as she walked away. She slid down into the back seat and quickly locked all of the doors.

    Payton had been all too relieved when Henry left to pick up her sister. She had made her way back upstairs and curled up in her bed. It hadn't taken her long to fall asleep, her body completely exhausted after everything that had happened in the past twenty-four hours.
    Charles frowned as he looked down to Zada, wanting nothing more than to be able to keep Zada with him. He bit back a sigh as he stepped forward, reaching out to pull Zada into his chest. "I love you, my sweet girl. I promise that I'm going to have you back out here soon, okay? Your dad can't keep us apart," he promised in a low voice, leaning down to press a kiss to her forehead. He breathed a small sigh before he straightened back up. Moving to run his fingers through Zada's hair, Charles breathed a small sigh. The idea that she was going to be without him, not being able to receive the attention that she deserved... it wasn't fair to him. It made him angry to just think about how neglected she was.

    His shoulders sagged when he heard the familiar sound of Henry's car pulling up to his cabin. Fuck. Charles grit his teeth as he turned, urging Zada a few steps back before he moved to answer the door. His face broke into a wide grin as he leaned forward to hug his brother. "Hey, man," he greeted, only for his eyes to narrow at the interaction between Henry and Zada. Watching his niece retreat to the car, Charles knew what was coming before Henry even turned toward him.

    His brows raised as he set his hands on his hips. As far as Charles was concerned, Henry was the one in the wrong here. Zada would have never felt so neglected, fallen victim to his desires if Henry hadn't been giving Payton all of that special attention. "Nothing you aren't doing to Payton," he answered in a low voice, giving a onesided shrug of his shoulders. "You know how neglected Zada feels? She was crying, pathetic because she doesn't even remember the last time that you were genuinely proud of her for anything she's ever done. So you wanna know something, Henry? Fuck you," he snapped, his voice rising toward the end of his sentence.

    Charles shook his head as he stepped to the side, starting to shoulder past Henry. "Zada can stay here. You don't want to care for her. Until you want to show her the same support and appreciation that you show to Payton, she'll stay here. Because you're a fuckin' awful father, Henry. You know that, do you?!"

    Henry felt his blood run cold, still staring into the cabin as Charles' pushed past him. An awful father? That was the one thing he knew he wasn't, he did his best. Zada had a roof over her head, food to eat, a warm place to sleep, clothes, whatever she asked for and here Charles was making him out like a villain? "What I do to Payton-" he repeated, turning on his heel to make eye contact with Charles again. So Zada did know. Henry felt conflicted and all he knew was to answer his anger. He glanced back towards the car, before just trying to let it go. "Zada is not stayng here. In fact, you're never going to see Zada again, Charles. You're never going to see any of us ever again."

    They didn't have to fight. As much as Henry wanted to lay his brother out, he tried to loosen his fists. All he needed to do was get Zada out of here, back home, and then everything would be back to normal. He could make Zada feel better, he could fix all of this. Stepping off of the porch, leaving Charles behind him as he took long strides back to his car, wanting nothing more than to leave his brother's home in the rear view mirror. Glaring through the window towards Zada, he felt his heart tremble slightly. Was it true? Did she really feel that neglected? Pulling on the driver's side door handle, he cussed when he realized Zada had locked it.

    "Honey, unlock the doors." Henry's brow was pulled together, his mouth set into a hard line as he looked through the window. Zada looked terrified, her wide eyes looking past his shoulder towards Charles. Still, she didn't move, and Henry felt all of his muscles in his body tensing, his face burning hot as he waited only a few more seconds. "Goddamnit, Zada, open this fucking door!" He screamed at her, unable to control his anger. His jaw felt tight and Henry was beginning to feel sick to his stomach. When she didn't move fast enough, Henry placed his hand against the window, trying to steady his breathing, "Sweetie, if you don't open this fucking door, right now,-" for a moment, his voice was sickeningly sweet, like a monster, until it deepened, "I will break this fucking window."

    "Never seeing any of you again? Henry, all it takes is a single phone call... talking about how a father touches his daughter inappropriately. For you to never see either of your daughters ever again. Is that what you want?" Charles countered in a cool voice. He grinned slightly, only because he knew that he had the upper hand here. It would be easy enough for him to warp what he had admitted to as simply caring for his niece. Showing her that her art was beautiful, that it was important if Henry tried to turn this around on him.

    If Charles had had any doubt left in his mind, it was dashed the moment that Zada didn't listen to Henry and unlock the door. She didn't even look toward Henry, instead, she was staring right at him. His heart swelled because he realized that Zada really did appreciate everything that he was giving her. He breathed a small sigh of relief as he started down the stairs that led up to the cabin. Hearing Henry's threat made his blood boil. When his spoke, his voice was low enough that Zada wouldn't be able to hear him inside the car. "You touch a hair on her head and there will be another body in my yard," he spoke, his eyes locked on Henry. Daring him to break the window and scare Zada.

    Charles moved around to the back of the passenger's side of the car, leaning down to look in at Zada. He smiled softly, giving a gentle knock on the door. "Come here, sweet girl. You're going to stay with me, okay? I'll take you into school tomorrow," he promised as he tested the handle. When it didn't give, Charles hand dropped but he made sure to keep his face neutral. Even if he was on edge, he couldn't let Zada know that yet. "C'mon, Zada. We're going to make a late lunch and then we can settle down and watch a movie? I can help you with your homework if you have any left, okay?" Charles prompted again, taking the slightest step backward so that Zada could open the door of her own accord.

    Henry glared across the top of the car at Charles, watching as he moved forward. He was threatening him? His own brother was daring to bury him alongside that cheerleader that he helped him cover? "It'd be a shame if someone were to tip off the cops about that missing cheerleader," Henry muttered under his breath, knowing damn well that this wasn't about to go how he wanted it to. His brother rounded the car to the side where Zada was hiding, and it twisted Henry's stomach to hear Charles speaking to her so softly.

    Moving to the back window, on the opposite side, Henry tapped on the glass, trying to get Zada's intention. "You can't trust him." That was all Henry told her, his eyes staring straight through her. "He's nice now, but you don't know your uncle." She looked so terrified, torn between deciding, not knowing what to do. Still, Zada only looked at Henry for a moment before he watched her hand rise to the handle, "Think about Payton!" Henry quickly blurted out, feeling completely on edge, like he couldn't breathe. He watched Zada's hand drop as she quickly turned to look at him again and felt a slight sense of relief. "She misses you, she's been waiting all weekend for you to come home. Just unlock the door baby, I'm sorry if I've been neglecting you. Unlock the door and we can go to skating rink, how does that sound? Just daddy and his little girl?"

    Zada felt her bottom lip tremble, not knowing what to do. That's all she wanted was her father's affection and now he was trying to give it? It left a bad taste in her mouth. This was torture because either way, she knew she was going to piss off someone and neither of these men were people you wanted to piss off. Letting her eyes drop from her father, she swallowed, slowly grabbing the door handle on Charles' side again before the lock popped and she pushed it open.

    "Zada, I swear to god, I'm going to fucking murder you," Henry flipped like a switch watching the door open, watching her choose his brother. It was like a slap in the face. "You little ungrateful bitch!"

    Charles’ face hardened as Henry started to threaten Zada, his eyes narrowing into thin slits. He may have been hurting Zada but to threaten her in front of him? It made what little resolve he had left disappear. He helped Zada out of the car, moving her behind him. “Sweet girl, I need you to go inside and lock the door. Don’t open it for him, I’ll be right in, in a minute okay? I promise you’re safe here,” he reassured her. He cupped her cheek before judging her toward the cabin. “Do as you’re told.”

    It wasn’t until the cabin door shut that he turned toward Henry, a murderous look on his face. “You ever threaten Zada again, you’ll find out first hand what it’s like to be buried in my back yard,” he growled as he stepped around the car, toward Henry. His hands were balled into tight fists and it was taking all the self control that he had not to completely lash out at his brother. Despite their disagreement at the moment, he didn’t want to hit Henry.

    “She wouldn’t have come to me, if you had done your job. But she’s told me all about how you neglect her. How you hardly even acknowledge her existence. That’s not her fault, is it? That’s yours!” Charles bellowed, poking Henry in the chest with two fingers. “Don’t pin this on anyone other than you. You failed as a father, not me!”

    Charles smirked as he took a slight step backward, holding his hands out to his sides as if he was surrendering to his brother. His words said otherwise. “She’ll be home when she’s ready, Henry. Not before that - not before you can prove you deserve to have the chance to raise her.”

    Henry looked into his brother's dark eyes, feeling his jaw go slack as he thought of just what to say to him. Henry might've not had the best control of his anger, but he knew what Charles was really up to. "Do you think this is working on me, Charles? Trying to play the hero?" He growled, moving away from his brother to go around to the door that Zada had unlocked. "You might have Zada thinking you're some savior, but we both know the truth." He reached into the back seat and grabbed his car keys, before slamming the door with so much force that it made the car shake. "You try taking care of two daughters, it's not fucking easy," he screamed, glad he had put more distance between himself and his twin. "But if you think I don't know what you're trying, you're wrong. I know your angle, you'll get tired of her eventually and then what? Gonna fucking bury her too? And will you call me to help?" He scoffed, wishing he could back in time and let his brother take the fall for that murder.

    Walking back around the car to the driver's side, Henry unlocked his door before opening it, staring down at the empty seat. What was he going to tell Payton? Looking back up at Charles, he knew this was a fight he wasn't going to win. "I'll get her back. Zada will come home." It was hard for him to get back behind the wheel, to shut his door and start the car. As much as he wanted to break Zada for making such an idiotic decision, he knew there was no way she was completely safe here. Without another word to his brother, he backed out of the drive, his hand holding on to the steering wheel so tightly that his knuckles were turning white.

    Once back home, he stormed straight into the house, unable to control his anger as he slammed the front door. It shook the pictures on the wall, causing one of Payton and her mother to drop to the floor and shatter. "Fuck!" He yelled, punching the wall out of anger, for a moment completely forgetting that Payton was upstairs.

    “Oh, that’s right. You really only take care of one daughter, don’t you?” Charles called as Henry slammed the door shut. He couldn’t help but smirk at the look on Henry’s face, one of disbelief and anger. He had won this battle, even if it didn’t necessarily feel like it. He breathed a small sigh of relief, only turning toward the cabin when Henry was far enough away from the cabin that something stupid wasn’t going to happen.

    His shoulders slumped as Charles started toward the cabin, coming to a stop in front of the door. He knocked gently, biting down on the inside of his lip, “c’mon, sweet girl. It’s me, it’s okay to open the door, now. I promise you,” Charles called into the door, his frown only deepening when Zada unlocked the door but didn’t pull it open herself.

    Nudging the door open, Charles sighed at the sight that met him. Zada looked horrible and it broke his heart. He wished that he could do more for her than he was now. “It’s okay, sweet girl. I won’t let anything happen to you, you know that, don’t you?” He murmured as he pulled Zada into his protective embrace.
    Payton awoke with a jolt when the front door slammed shut. She shot up in bed, her eyes widening as her heart sank. She heard the angry outburst and it was all she needed to know that something had gone wrong on his trip to pick Zada up. Her heart skipped a beat as she pushed herself back against the headboard. She was still sore but not nearly as bad as she had been when Henry first saw her that morning. After a bath and actual rest, Payton was feeling considerably better.

    Gulping, Payton had no intention of heading downstairs to ask Henry if he was okay because she had no doubt in her mind that he was pissed right off.

    Zada pressed herself into Charles chest, unable to stop herself from ugly crying. Tears poured down her face and she couldn't breathe easily. Her father had never talked to her like that, had never threatened to hurt her and just now, he said he would've murdered her. Trying to tell herself he was just upset, wasn't working. Zada hadn't even wanted to open the door because she was afraid Henry had somehow coerced Charles into handing her over.

    Wrapping her arms tightly around him, she squeezed him as she buried her head into his chest. "W-Why did he say those things?" She sobbed, unable to keep her emotions in check, "why doesn't my dad love me like he loves Payton?" Zada had no clue that Henry hurt Payton. To her it just looked like her father gave all of his attention to her, sometimes intimately too. "I don't ever want to go home, Charlie, please don't make me-" her breathing was fast and shallow, almost like she was about to hyperventilate.
    Henry didn't care to keep the noise down as he completely destroyed the living room. It was hard for him to understand why he was so angry. It was true that he shrugged Zada off more than he'd like to admit, and he couldn't remember the last time he even hugged her, but she was still his daughter. Being faced with the realization that she would choose Charles over him...

    He stood in the rubble of the living room. The tables had been flipped, all the photos on the walls had been thrown around and shattered, multiple holes decorated the walls now. Panting, sweat dripping down his face, he began to stomp up the stairs. "Payton!" He shouted, warning her that he was on his way. He slammed her door open, his arms shaking, veins popping out down his arms and in his neck. "Zada isn't coming home."

    Charles was so angry, just listening to the way Zada sobbed. He couldn't say that he blamed her at all - her own father had threatened to kill her. Of course, she was upset. He bit back a sigh, beginning to rock them back and form gently, enough that he hoped it would help to start calming her down. "Shh, sweet girl. You're okay, I promise," he whispered, his fingers working their way through her hair. "He's just scared, baby. He realized that he can't get you all of the attention you need and he doesn't want to lose you. He's scared and he's angry, that's all. But i promise I won't let him hurt you, okay?" He whispered, pressing a kiss to her forehead. Seeing her so upset was breaking his heart. It would have been one thing if he had been the reason she was upset but he wasn't.

    "He loves you but he's... just confused. Your dad is doing too much between caring for your sister and you and trying to maintain the roof over your head. He's stretched thin, baby. There's nothing wrong with you, you haven't done anything wrong," Charles promised in a low voice. He glanced toward the hallway before looking down to her. "Why don't I start a bath for you? I'll make you a mug of hot chocolate and you can just relax, okay?" He spoke softly, reaching up with his other hand to wipe away her tears.
    Listening to the sounds going on downstairs, Payton couldn't help but start crying. She pressed her back against the headboard and clamped her hands over her ears in an effort to help muffle the noise as much as she could. She was completely and utterly terrified listening to what Henry was doing downstairs. He was angry, she didn't think that she had ever seen him as angry as it seemed like he was. Hearing her name shouted at what seemed like the top of Henry's lungs, Payton shook her head and tried to make herself even smaller. "No, no, no," she choked out, digging her heels into the mattress in an effort to push herself closer to the wall.

    Payton's breath caught as Henry threw her door open. It was clear that she was afraid, from her expression right down to the way her body was shaking. She gulped, lifting her head as Henry spoke. She could only imagine just how angry he looked right now, wishing she could disappear right now. "W-What?" She stuttered her bottom lip wobbling. Zada wasn't coming home? She was with him all on her own, for another night? A sob tore its way past her lips before she could think to stop it. "W..Why?"

    Zada's eyes dropped to the floor as she forced her mouth shut. Slowly pulling her hands away from Charles, she pulled the sleeves of her shirt over her fists and pressed them to her eyes. Every time she closed her eyes she could see Henry's face, twisted in anger, barring his teeth at her, repeating those words, calling her a bitch. Quietly nodding, she stepped away from Charles and sunk down on the couch, trying to slow her breathing.

    A few moments later, Zada was sinking beneath the hot water in the bath Charles had drawn for her. Still shaking, but she was no longer crying. Her eyes burned and they felt so sore. Charles had left her alone in the bathroom, presumably going to make the hot cocoa he had promised. Zada sunk as far into the water as she could, while still being able to keep her nose above water so she could breathe. All she could think about was her sister and school tomorrow.

    When she could hear Charles' footsteps, she rolled on her side, her hand resting gently on the side of the tub. "Do... Do you think Payton's okay?" Her father had been so mad when he left...
    Henry glared down at Payton, not because he was necessarily angry towards her, but who else was here for him to take it out on? Tears were already burning her eyes and the way her voice broke into a sob... "Because apparently, I'm a shit father..." Henrys jaw clenched as he stepped into the room and he closed the door. Softly. That was the most terrifying part. As loud as he had been downstairs, now his movements were slowed, calculated. "Do you think so, Payton?" He asked as he stepped further into the room. "Do you wish you could run away to your uncle's too? Hmm? To get away from me?"

    It was a trick question. There was no way Payton could answer without furthering Henry's rage. Her demeanor alone was enough to set him off, but he was holding himself back. For the moment. He wanted to hear her answer.
