Broken Hopes: Sam meets his daughter.
“When you break a promise…even that trust is broken.”
Sam broke her heart, he dumped her for her cousin. Leah is completely broken…Sam leaves her in her most vulnerable state! She would have preferred death but something living inside her kept her alive.
It was raining down hard, defining the pain I had in my chest. I didn’t have anywhere to go. I hated him for doing this to my mother and me, his words had crushed me. I wish, I wish things were different. I sat down leaning against the rock and hugging my self. I realized I was shivering, but the cold rain and my drenched body wasn’t helping.
I started sobbing, wishing I had someone to love…someone to care for me.
“Mom, I want you…” I said through my sobs.

Well we all know who she is. Not really. Leah Clearwater.

Chapter 12: Need to know.
I woke up to find the same cold weather, I wanted to soak in the sun but it was drizzling! I lay on the bed remembering everything that happened yesterday, I had met Gran and had fun with her too and while Sam was going through the pictures last night I had felt great. It felt like I had finally made a connection with my father. Not letting my mood go down because of the weather I took a warm shower and dressed in sweatpants and a t-shirt and dried my hair at a low setting. I walked out with slightly damp hair over my shoulders.
“Good morning,” I greeted everyone-Sam and Emily.
“Good morning,” both of them said together.
I got myself a bowl and added milk and cereal to it and started having it.
“What plans for today?” Sam asked me.
“I don’t know, I mean I don’t have anything to do in particular,” I shrugged.
“Okay,” he nodded.
Someone knocked at the door, “I will get it,” I said and walked lazily to open the door.
It was Darren…he was looking incredibly handsome, his hair was slightly wet because of the rain and it added to make him even more attractive. Whoa…I need to relax!
“Hi Darren,” I smiled.
“Hello Adriana,” he smiled too. I moved aside to let him in; he was probably here to see Alex, this thought made me feel a bit down.
“Alex’s upstairs,” I told him.
“No, I actually came to see you, ask you something,” he said shyly.
“Oh, okay,” I blushed.
“Darren! What are you doing here?” Sam interrupted him. I turned and gave him a ‘what-are-you-doing? look.
“I mean you don’t usually come here in the morning’s right,” he corrected himself. I rolled my eyes.
“You were saying something,” I helped him.
“Yeah, I was…” he agreed, he sounded so nervous!
“And that is?” I encouraged him.
He looked at Sam once and swallowed, I looked at Sam once, he sighed and left the room, “Okay, wouldyouliketogoonadatewithme?” he said in the fastest fast-forward mode.
“Er, sorry what?” I asked.
“Would you like to go on a date with me?” he asked, this time in a smaller voice but I could make out what he was saying.
“Sure,” I agreed blushing even more.
“Okay, I will pick you up at six?” he asked with a smile.
“Yeah, I will see you then,” I agreed.
“Okay, bye!” he was beaming.
“Bye!” I called back and watched him walk back to his car and waved him off.
Feeling extremely happy I walked back to the kitchen to complete my breakfast, I was actually very much full; my stomach was filled with butterflies. Sam was seated there with a stern expression.
“Why didn’t you ask me first?” he asked.
“Sorry what?” I stared at him in disbelief.
“You agreed to go on a date with him,” he stated.
“What is your problem?” I asked astonished.
“Sam!” Emily looked at him. She probably understood.
“I mean you could have other work to do right,” he amended.
“No, I didn’t have any work to do today, and I will go on dates with whomever I want and whenever I want…its my chice!” I was feeling angry now! Very angry.
“Look, I needed to know,” his words didn’t make any sense.
“Needed to know what?” I demanded.
He didn’t say anything.
“You know what? I don’t really see why we are arguing on this, it’s just stupid!” I grabbed my bowl and washed in furiously in the sink and went into my room and banged the door.
I sat there taking deep breaths. Mom would never do this! Come-on! He didn’t even know me properly and I was sixteen for crying out loud! He didn’t say anything to Alex! Alex was such a player, I guess he just wanted to have some control on one of his kids but still!
The door opened and Sam walked in, I glared at him, I seriously don’t know from where this anger was coming, I had never been so angry in my whole life.
“I m sorry,” he said. I looked away childishly.
“I know, I shouldn’t have said that, it was really stupid of me, you’re right,” he said. “Adriana, please listen to me,” he requested.
I looked at him, he sat on the bed.
“Look, I never knew I had a daughter before, and I don’t know how to be a proper father to you, I need some practice, and I love you and feel very protective, I just didn’t like the fact that Darren imp- I mean…you know,” he hesitated in the end.
“Okay,” I nodded confused.
“I m really sorry, I m just new to this but I promise I will behave and be supportive,” he concluded.
“You will?” I asked raising my eye brow.
“Yes I will,” he agreed.
“Okay, sorry for throwing such a fit,” I apologised too.
“My fault entirely, I just didn’t know how to handle it, but I would have been surprised if you wouldn’t have been angry,” he chuckled.
“What do you mean?” I asked.
“Come-on, Leah’s anger didn’t miss you,” he chuckled.
“Ha! No way! I have never seen mom like that,” I snorted.
“Trust me Ade,” he laughed and went out.
“Yeah sure,” I said sarcastically.
But now I was feeling excited again, it was just 8 am now and Darren would be here at 6 pm. Emily and Sam left for work, I sat down watching TV, Alex came down had his breakfast and left without much talk, he had a grim expression on his face…I didn’t really bother to ask why.
I decided to go to the beach, I changed from my sweatpants into old jeans and put on a raincoat, it was pouring down hard. I vaguely remembered the route to the beach, using the spare key I locked the door and headed out.
It was somewhat peaceful walking down by myself, I took a deep breathe, I felt free yet chained…yeah it is pretty weird but that’s what I felt now. I walked into the parking lot of the beach, due to the rain there weren’t many people. The ocean was in vigorous motion today, the rain had turned into just a drizzle now, after a while I walked further down the beach to find the place where mom and I had had a talk in my ‘dream’. I found that place, it was pretty isolated, and I could see the forest beginning a little deeper.
I sat down, and clutched myself harder. “Mom…” I whispered. I didn’t know how long I sat there, but I just did…clutching myself hard, trying not to feel alone. Remembering her with me…
“Adriana?” I looked up startled, it was Derek, and he was wearing just cut-off jeans. He was dripping wet.
“How did you come here?” I asked in surprise, I hadn’t heard anyone walk, and it looked like he had come from the forest.
“My shift as wolf just got over,” he smiled half-way and held out his hand.
“Oh, okay,” I took his hand not really understanding.
His hand was really warm! Like hot! I let go off it at once and fell back on the sand. He started laughing.
“Not funny!” I said dusting the wet sand as well as possible.
“It was,” he chuckled.
“Why is your hand so warm?” I asked curiously, even Sam’s was.
“It’s a wolf thing…we um run at very high temperatures,” he said in a high-mighty voice.
“Right,” I nodded. I didn’t realise I was shivering until Derek put his arm around me, I moved away involuntarily.
“Look, I would have given you my jacket or anything but right now I don’t have it and your shivering like crazy!” he explained.
“Okay,” I sighed and stood by him, he put his arm around once more, even though he was dripping wet I felt very comfortable, I snuggled closer trying to warm myself up.
“Darren is not going to be happy about it though,” he smirked after I moved away again warming myself a bit.
“Huh what?” I asked rubbing my palms.
“He asked you on a date right,” he simply stated.
“How did you know that?” I asked him.
“Well, I heard him think,” he shrugged.
“Think? Yeah right,” I snorted.
“Yeah…we kinda hear thoughts while we are wolves, and when Darren was out for patrolling, trust me it was all about him asking you out,” he laughed.
I blushed deep red.
“And Alex just found out,” he continued.
“Found what?” I asked.
“That Darren im- I mean asked you out,” he looked away.
“Ok, so?” I asked.
“He doesn’t like it, Darren and he are best friends, and now he’s really angry with Darren,” I felt like he wanted to say something else but didn’t.
“That’s so kiddish, and anyway, its just a date…I don’t know whether it will turn into anything serious” I realised that I hoped the exact opposite.
He mumbled something…too low for me to hear.
“You said something?” I asked.
“No, how did you get here?” he asked changing the subject.
“Walk,” I said.
“Oh,” he nodded.
“So what’s the time?” I asked.
“Ha! You think I will carry a watch too?” he laughed.
“Yeah…?” I sounded unsure.
“Yeah, you don’t know,” he said.
“You wont explain?” I asked.
“Nope,” he shook his head.
“Why?” I asked.
“Because, it’s too embarrassing,” he rolled his eyes.
“Okay,” I dragged the work.
Talking and joking we reached the road and started walking to my present place, I saw that Sam’s truck was already there, Derek seemed totally at home and he walked in without any discomfort.
“I didn’t even ask you to come,” I joked.
“Ha, we do this all the time, we live more here than at our own place,” he winked.
“Yeah, I can make that out,” I giggled.
I removed my raincoat and hung it, and walk in with Derek following.
“Hey Sam,” he greeted him and plopped down on the chair.
“Hi Derek,” he said and continued with his food.
I got both Derek and my plates, and we started eating, the amount of food that Sam and he ate just amused and shocked me. It was hard to not stop looking.
“Wolf diet,” Derek said after he caught me looking at his plate again.
“Clearly,” I agreed, and Sam laughed.
After eating I washed up the dishes while Derek stood and dried the plates, we joked the whole time…and after that I went in my room to get ready. Derek joined Sam in the living room. I checked out the time, Oh my god! 5.10! I had to get ready soon!
I washed myself up, moisturised my arms and legs, added make up and went to decide for an outfit. I had almost emptied whole of my closet but yet couldn’t find a perfect top! I was panicking…I couldn’t go on a date in just sweats and tank-top! No! Just when I was about to give up I came across a top which I hadn’t worn even once. It was a floral print sleeveless top, I sighed in relief! This was just perfect! With it I decided to wear skinny jeans and brown boots. I put on the clothes and set my hair, straitening it.
I got my leather bag and put my wallet, basic make-up and went out. There were still couple of minutes left for six.
“You look nice,” Sam said with a smile.
“Thanks,” I said smiled happy to see that he was keeping his cool.
“Yeah, Darren’s gonna go out of his mind and-” he didn’t complete the sentence because of the look from Sam. I giggled at the change in his expression-huge grin to an expression of a person attending a funeral.
There was a knock on the door, my heart raced; I walked to open it…and there he stood looking as handsome as ever. His hair perfectly gelled, his eyes shining brightly and his lips forming a smile.
“Hey,” he said.
“Hi…” I said blushing.
“Ahem…” I knew it was Sam.
“Hello Sam,” Darren said nervously.
“Hello Darren,” he replied with formality.
“Just came to tell you don’t be late,” he added.
“Okay,” he nodded.
“Alright kids, have fun,” Sam said grimly.
“Sure…bye,” I said and stepped out.
I could hear Derek laughing…with gritted teeth I walked out with Darren following me.
Once we got in the car everything was forgotten, I was feeling very hollow again.
“You look beautiful,” Darren said with a smile. All the nervousness seemed to vanish at his simple words.
“Thanks,” I blushed.
I looked at his clothes for the first time, he was wearing black jeans and checked red shirt, and on his left hand were a couple bands.
“Where are we going?” I asked.
“It’s a surprise,” he said.
After couple of minutes we got comfortable with each other, rather I got comfortable with him and started talking normally…but my heart raced at his every smile. Even just hearing his voice was wonderful.
We didn’t seem to drive out of town so this got me really curious. As far as I knew there were no restaurants in La Push, but again I didn’t really know whether it was a dinner date. Instead we were moving on toward an isolated place but it was well lit by the moon. He stopped the car in the corner.
“Where are we?” I asked curiously.
“I usually come here when I want to be alone, just by myself,” he explained.
I smiled and looked around, he had gotten down and was already opening my door, and I got down and looked around. This place was indeed beautiful, there were rocks around and further down the woods. And I could hear the constant moving of the waves; we were high above the ocean.
“Wait here,” he smiled and moved on the other side of the car.
I stood there waiting patiently and looking at the sky…the moon shone brightly and the stars were visible too.
“Ready?” Darren asked startling me, “sorry,” he smiled crookedly.
“Yeah ready,” I nodded excited.
He held out his hand, I took it; electricity passed through me under his touch. We went across the rocks and there he had set up a blanket and picnic basket on it. The setting was simply beautiful, there were few flowers around the place, it had a dreamy quality.
“It’s really beautiful here,” I whispered not wanting to disrupt the peace.
“Come-on,” he said and we sat on the blanket.
He told me that he had made the whole dinner himself, I felt elated. No guy had ever taken me on a date as beautiful as this, no that I had been on many dates. While eating Darren told me everything about wolves, how they could hear each other’s thoughts and how they had fought vampires! This all seemed so fascinating, he told me about my Seth’s vampire friends. After that he asked me many questions and I willing answered.
We had finished eating, it had gotten cooler, Darren looked stunning, we were leaning very close to each other, though I didn’t have much experience I knew what was coming…a kiss.
“I really like you,” he said stroking my cheek staring at my eyes.
“I like you too,” I whispered, like was an understatement, what I felt for Darren was more than like…his warm hand cupped my cheek, I felt like my heart would jump out of my chest. I leaned closer staring at his lips.
“I have to tell something,” he breathed.
“What?” I looked at his eyes, I could feel the tension.
He looked at me not in an undecided manner…his eyes were determined.
“Come on,” I whispered curious to know what was on his mind.
“I…uh…imprinted on you.” He whispered.
A/N: Sorry, completely lost the track of time! Anyway…so…what do u guys think of this chapter?!
