Diya hated that she was late yet again. The man who had offered her a place to stay was always understanding but he had been giving her and her daughter a home rent free purely out of the kindness of his heart and she hated it ever looking like she was taking advantage of his kindness. She still didn't know why he offered to help a homeless mother or watched her daughter without expecting a penny but she planned on making him a nice dinner to make up for the rude customers that had stayed so long after the restaurant closed. When she walked in there was blood everywhere and a strange man talking to her daughter. The mama bear inside her took over and she ran at the man. She heard her daughter Melody yell "mommy no!" but she still tried to land a blow. The man seemed to catch her with ease, taking her by the wrists firmly but still not hurting her "listen please"
"yeah mom, listen" Melody said a little shakily. Diya looked over at the destroyed corpse of the man who had shown her so much kindness when she needed it most. She felt selfish but a dominant thought in her head was where would she and her daughter stay now? Back on the streets? They certainly had nowhere else to go and they couldn't afford this apartment. "Diya, thats your name right?" The strange mans words made her look back at him "yes, who are you and why....why have you done this. Why is my daughter on your side?"
"I spend my time finding, following and killing pedophiles...this man...this man was a monster. Normally I like to make these cases missing person instead of leaving a murder scene but I had to act when I did. His behavior was escalating, he was going to go through with raping your daughter. I found him online, hes been making your daughter pose nude and sharing them with the other disgusting people on the web. Thats how I found him. I hate those places but I'm in them to stop monsters like him. I've been watching a few days, waiting for the perfect time to cause him to go missing but then I saw him trying to force himself on Melody so I had to kill him right here. Ask your daughter"
"Melody baby...is this true?" Melody nodded, tears in her eyes "but honey...why didn't you tell me he was taking pictures of you"
"I didn't know he was doing something bad. You have me smile for pictures all the time. I didn't know being naked made it different" A tear slipped out of Diyas eyes "let me go, let me hug her" Romanus did and Diya scooped Melody up into her arms "Oh baby, I'm so sorry"
