Chapter 35

Duncan opened the door to Lilly's bedroom softly, it creaked a little as it was not often opened or closed. He walked in first followed by Veronica and Logan.

« What are you looking for? » Duncan asked Veronica who was searching the room with her eyes.

« We're looking for a shot glass from Tijuna. » Logan said.

« Why… »

« Not now Duncan. » Logan said harshly. Veronica sighed, now was not the time to have a fight over why Lilly would have a glass from the place Logan was supposed to be. « Logan can you hand me that chair please? » she asked as she looked at the vent in the wall.

« Do you think Lilly put it there? »

« I don't know Logan, it can't hurt to check. » Veronica took a screwdriver from her back pocket and began to open the vent. « Bingo! » She said with a smile as she held the glass and the letter. Just as she was about to screw the nail back something caught her attention, there were tapes at the back of the vent.

Logan arched an eyebrow and took the camera Veronica gave him, Duncan was watching the whole thing unfold before him not understanding what was happening.

« Why would my sister hid those things? »

« When Lilly wanted to hide things from your mother she would always put them there, something about Celeste searching her room. Do you have something on which we can see what's on those tapes? » Veronica asked Duncan, he nodded and left the room.

« Ronnie do you really think we're closer to finding her killer? »

« I do, Lilly wouldn't have put them there unless it was important and it needed to be kept quiet. I don't know what she did but it got her killed. »

« I've got it. » Duncan said quickly entering the room and setting up the whole thing. Veronica handed him the first tape.

The three of them stood in the middle of the room staring at the TV, knowing their lives were about to change no matter what. Veronica handed the remote control to Duncan who pressed play.

At first nothing could be seen except for what looked like a bed and then suddenly Lilly's face appeared on the screen and as the tape went on Lilly's face got closer to the camera.

« Logan… » Veronica whispered as she grabbed his hand, she knew where the film was made, the Echolls pool house. Logan stood frozen as he watched on screen Lilly discover the camera. Veronica stopped the tape and put another one and this time they all knew why Lilly had hidden them.

« I… It can't be… She would never… » Duncan tried to say. Veronica wanted to break down and cry but she needed to be the strong one this time, the two men with her needed her to be strong and she wouldn't let them down.

« I need to call my dad and tell him about it. »

« What are you going to tell him? »

« Aaron did it, she must have stolen the tapes and he killed her to get them back. » she explained as she dialed her dad's number. « Dad I know who killed Lilly, it was Aaron Echolls, he was having an affair with her …. Yes I know but I can prove it…. There are tapes of the two of them having sex… Ok I'll meet you there. » she hung up and turned to Logan. « We need to go down to the police station and give them the tapes. »

The closet door burst open as Aaron stood before the trio with a gun in his hand, he smirked as he aimed his gun towards Veronica.

« I'm afraid no one's going anywhere at the moment. Why couldn't you let that case go Veronica? You had a killer for her murder. »

« But why Lilly, why did you have to kill her, she was innocent. » Logan said as he pushed his girlfriend behind him so he could shield her from Aaron. From the corner of his eyes he saw Duncan inch towards the door, Logan knew what he wanted to do but Veronica didn't, he had to distract Aaron.

« Lilly wasn't that innocent, that bitch jumped in bed with me willingly and then she suddenly remembered she had a conscience. She had no remorse when in bed with me. » Aaron goated

« She was sixteen and my girlfriend. »

« Really ? Believe me son she was more mature in the sacks department for a sixteen years teen than most, although I haven't tried with Veronica, yet. But we aren't going to spend the night discussing the why or how I killed Lilly or the things your girlfriend can do in bed, give me those tapes. »

« What if I don't? » Logan said challenging Aaron once more. « Will you shoot me, kill your son and alert all the people in the house? There are four people in the room, you can't kill the three of them and think you'll get away just like that. »

« People are stupid Logan, they believe what you want them to believe, you can manipulate them as you wish. As for killing you Logan believe me I'll do it without thinking twice about it, after all you did take an ice pic with my name on it. Did I ever thank you for taking that? Of course no, I was the one who shoved you in front of me to take the hit. »

« You won't walk out of here as a freeman, the three of us have seen the tapes, heard you admit you killed Lilly you'll end up in jail. »

« Honey, can I call you that? » Aaron asked as we walked closer to Veronica. He grabbed her arm and dragged her away from Logan who was struggling to keep a hold on Veronica. « You should let that sweet angel go, she reminds of Lilly, her blond hair so much like hers. Tell me Logan what is she like in bed » he said dragging a finger from her eye to her lips and then suddenly he slapped her.

« You son of bitch! » he screamed as he lunched on Aaron. Veronica managed to get away and closer to Duncan who was yelling for security at the top of his lungs. She saw Logan and Aaron fight over the control of the gun when a shot rang out.
