6:51 Can’t Fight This Feeling

Campbell couldn’t believe they still would not let Abbey go.

“Please. I can’t have her there anymore.”

“Just saying that you do not need her there is not a good enough answer. We know better.”

He sighed and shook his head. “Please. I need you to let her go. She’s not safe being near me. Nobody is.”

Philip looked at his wife then back at his son. “Is there a reason to think that she’s not safe?”

Campbell closed his eyes. “Everybody that I get too close to ends up dead. I don’t want that for her.”

Shelby hugged her son tight. “Don’t think like that, honey. That’s not true.”

“Yes it is, Mom.” He pulled away from her. “Grandpa Patrick, Beth, Devin, Rita…”

Andy looked at his grandson. “Do you really think that you are at fault for what happened to them? Campbell, none of that was your fault. Your grandfather was an old man. It was his time to go. Beth, that was the other driver’s fault. Devin…” He couldn’t talk about his grandson. “Rita, that was an accident. You heard the police say that she slipped and fell into the pool hitting her head. None of it was your fault.”

Campbell shook his head. “It is my fault. They were all people I cared about and they all died. I can’t let that happen to Abbey too. You have to let her go so she will be safe.”

Shelby shook her head. “I’m sorry, honey. We’re not going to do that.”

He glared at all three of them. “If anything happens to her, you are all to blame. I warned you and you didn’t listen.”

They watched as he left. Philip looked at his wife. “I told you not to do it, Shelby.”

“And I told you to trust me. Everything is going to be fine. Nothing is going to happen to Abbey. They both deserve to be happy. You have seen the way those two are when they are together.”

Philip shook his head. “You better hope nothing happens to her. Our son cannot handle losing someone else that he loves.”
