She bit down on her nails, as she waited for the judge to tell his verdict. Malcom had presented what Kamille considered to be an excellent case, but she knew there was always a chance she could lose. Paul made sure he brought up the fact that she was a prostitute. He also denied the fact that he introduced her to it. He made himself out to be the perfect man.
They had various tapes they played for the judge showing how nasty Paul was towards Kamille, and how he wanted her to sleep with his boss in order to spend more time with Taylor. Kamille went for full custody, but knew that might not be possible.
"These are difficult circumstances given your history Ms. Williams." The judge said.
The judge's blue eyes were focused on her, and he barely blinked while he talked. Her nerves were beginning to get the best of her, as her hands began to tremble slightly.
Kamille nodded her head in agreement. She could understand how the judge feel, because she did infact have a shady past. She did things that she regretted, but if anything all her experiences made her stronger.
She looked back at Tony who was sitting behind her, he winked his eye at her, and offered her a smile. She was so happy that Tony had decided to come with her, she needed his support. Over the last couple of weeks Tony had been the rock in her life, he became her sanity. What she loved most about him was that he never wanted anything from her, except her time. She was amazed that he was the only man she could lay in bed with, and not sleep with. He would actually hold her throughout the night.
"But what I can appreciate is that you got yourself together." The judge continued. "Your working, you have steady income, and that's a good thing. And as for you Mr. Scott I would have to say I'm not impressed. You critizied Ms. Williams for doing the things that she's done when your the one who introduced that life to her!"
"Your honor-" The judge held his hand up cutting Paul off.
"I've made my decision." The judge grunted before adjusting his glasses. "Ms. Williams I am awarding you full custody, and as for you Mr. Scott you will have weekend visitation rights." With that said he banged his gavel, and exited the court room quiuckly.
Kamille couldn't believe what she heard, she sat there frozen unable to move. Malcom jumped up, and hugged her, followed by a smiling Tony.
"Did he say full custody?" She asked in disbelief.
"Yes!" Malcom confirmed.
Kamille locked eyes with Paul for a few silent moments. He walked over to her, and stood directly infront of her.
"You won this time." He mumbled before exiting the court room.
"Let's go." tony said grabbing her hand.
She left the court room that day a revived woman. Finally her life was beginning to come together as it should.
