When we got home from church I was going to change clothes and head to the police station but Salinda was here. She was lying on her bed, having showered, sobbing. I gave her the perfunctory lecture and left the room.
Changed my clothes and went back in there. She let me put my hand on her leg. Then she let me hug her while she shopped
She admitted to where she had been -- scenario wasn't quite as bad as I thought -- and she apologized in what seemed like a sincere fashion.
I told her that Sadie and she and I needed to have a talk. I told her a lot of things. She talked to me, but still really didn't open up.
I'm glad she's home and safe. I'm glad that she is at this point at least somewhat vulnerable. I'm glad I didn't have to go to the police station.
Right now we are planning to leave for lunch out for Rand's birthday and Dominyk is begging me to leave early. He's obsessing.
