Billy had just been thrown out and Marlon felt relieved but sad at the same time, he grown to both Ellis and Billy like his own.
Walking through to the lounge he sat on the sofa a mere second because he had to go and pick April up.
Jumping in the car he saw Paddy drive up but didn't stop
In Paddy's car
Paddy said to himself "did he just drive past me" taking a U turn he followed Marlon's car
Over in the village Billy walked in the pub with his bag
Ellis:" no did he chuck you out too?" he asked
"for sticking up for me, you shouldn't have… where will you go?" he asked
Dawn:" you can stay at ours?" smiling
Harriet looked at Dawn and didn't disagree
Dawn:" on the couch mind" she clarified
Over at the School
Marlon pulled up and got out the car just after so did Paddy.
April came out of school not her usual happy self
Marlon:" hey Sweetheart, you ok?" taking April's hand
April just nodded
"where's Billy? He said he would be picking me up and we could go to the park" smiling
Marlon:" he couldn't make it but when we get home we have to talk ok" he said with a small smile
Paddy:" Marlon did you not see me?" he asked "I waved you down" he said
Marlon:" Paddy I don't want to talk to you, its been a hell of time for me and I just can't right now so please just leave me alone … us" he told Paddy and got in his car and drove off
In the car ride home
April: " so are you going to tell me now why Billy didn't pick me up?" she asked again
Already annoyed with Paddy following him he turned and snapped
Marlon:" no April im not, not yet because im driving and it can wait till we get home now be quiet please"
April just looked out the window
Marlon:" April" he said " look at me"
April looked at him
Marlon:" im sorry for snapping, I will when we get home ok"
April just nodded
