Brianna Simmons- Fight for Love Chap. 16
When Brianna Simmons was barely 17 she met Adam Tayler, he was supposed to be the love of her life, but then things changed and Adam strayed. Brianna ran to get away from the pain and encountered Jonny West, he began the process of trying to heal her broken heart, but he was hiding a secret and now they are all fighting for love. Who will end up with the girl, or will they all end up alone?
As she is driving toward the police station at the other end of town Brianna wonders how her life has suddenly gotten so messed up. Although the only good thing she had as far as she could tell at the moment was the man that she was fixing to get out of jail. Slowly pulling into the parking lot of the Lamar County Jail, Brianna parks in the designated visitors’ parking space and shuts off the engine. Climbing out of her car and locking it up, she quietly makes her way up the steps and into the station. Walking up to the desk she asks the clerk for the officer that she had just spoke to twenty minutes earlier.
“Ma’am, may I speak with Officer Markett, please?” Brianna asks as she glances at her surroundings.
“Hang on one minute please.” States the clerk as she turns to speak into a speakerphone. “Donny, would you come up front please, there is a young lady named Miss. Simmons here to see you.”
“I will be right up, Marla.” Answers Donny over the intercom. Turning back to Brianna the clerk smiles and replies “He will be right with you, miss.”
“Thank you.” Answers Brianna as she looks around her at the room she is in.
“You can have a seat over there, Miss.” States the clerk as she points to some seats in the corner of the room.
“Miss. Simmons?” questions an officer as he enters from the side door.
“Officer Markett?” she questions back as she watches him approach.
“Call me Donny please.” Replies the cop as he offers his hand to her.
“Ok! You can call me Brianna.” She answers as she takes his hand.
“Alright Brianna. So how can I help you?” asks Donny as he looks her over “Are you here to press those charges?”
“No sir. I am here to bail out Jonny West.” Replies Brianna as she sighs nervously.
“Ah ok! Well just come with me this way then please.” Answers Donny as he leads the way down a hallway all the while wondering what it is a young girl could be hiding
She follows him into a small conference room then watches as he walks over to the door at the back of the room and knocks on the window.
“Yo, what’s up Don?” questions the cop as he pokes his head around the frame of the door.
“Bring out the young man we brought in a short while ago.” States Donny as his gaze sifts to the girl sitting at the table.
“Ok!” answers the young cop as he disappears back behind the door.
About five minutes later the young cop reappears escorting Jonny and seats him at the table then removes the cuffs and disappears back out the door.
“Young man I am going to release you to this young lady, although if it was up to me I would throw your butt behind bars in a split second.” States Donny as he signals for Brianna to stand.
“Thank you, sir. I appreciate everything.” Replies Jonny as he walks over to Brianna and slips his arm around her.
“Not a problem young man.” Answers Donny as he escorts them back to the front “You all take care of yourselves.”
“We will sir.” Answers Brianna as she takes hold of Jonny’s hand and leads him out to her car.
As he watches the young couple walk out the door he gets a funny feeling in the pit of his stomach that makes him think that something must be wrong. Turning to the clerk at the desk he gives her instructions that he hopes she will be able to follow. “Marla, see if you can dig up the file on Jonny West.” States Donny as he starts to walk back toward his office.
“Yes, sir!” answers Marla as she begins to tap away at the keys on the keyboard in front of her.
“When you have it bring it to me.” Replies Donny as he reaches his office door “I will be in my office the rest of the day.”
“Yes, sir I will do that.” She answers as she looks up long enough to catch a glimpse of him just as he disappears into his office.
After closing the door of his office behind him, Donny walks over and takes a seat in the chair behind his desk just as the phone rings. “Hello!” answers Donny as he picks up the receiver.
“Officer Markett?” questions the voice on the other end of the phone.
“Yes! I am Officer Markett.” He answers slowly “How can I help you?”
“Officer Markett, I am Adam Tayler, the other boy that was at the hotel when you picked up Jonny.” States Adam as he tries to remain calm and explain who he is “I was wondering if you could give me any information on this Jonny West character?”
“For what reason may I ask do you want to know this information?” asks Donny as he listens to the boy on the other end of the line.
“Because I want to know if my girlfriend Brianna is in any danger from this guy.” Adam answers honestly.
“Oh, I see, well right now I am looking up the information on Jonny.” States Donny as he tries decide what to do “If you will meet me in my office at noon tomorrow I should have what you want by then.”
“Thank you sir. I appreciate it.” Says Adam not attempting to keep the relief out of his voice.
“You are welcome young ma.” Replies Donny “Just be glad the young lady decided against filing charges against you. Take care now son and I will speak with you tomorrow.”
“Ok sir! Bye!” says Adam before he clicks off.
As he sits there staring at the receiver of the telephone in his hand he begins to wonder just what exactly did go down between those three-young people back at the hotel. He quietly vows to himself that he will somehow figure out what went down at that hotel and also what mysteries each of those three people could possibly be hiding.
