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.
Imprinted can be a lame reason...at times. When you have to leave the person who gave you her whole life. Sam Uley.
You're present maybe different.
But the future is the reflection of past!~Adriana Uley.
I'm always here for you...I just want you to accept me. Yeah, that's all~Darren McKay
The heck is wrong with this guy? Kicking his kid out?! REAL MANYLY THERE SAMMY!
A/N: I know! It’s an update! And this chapter is a little longer than the previous one.
Chapter 21: Family
Darren was gone again, Sam had just made his patrolling shift worse, and I hated him even more. This morning I had spoken to Grandma, she at once wanted me to come and stay with her and I stalled. As far as I had seen, Charlie and Grandma had a satisfying average life and now that Charlie had retired just his pension and Grandma’s money from the local store was enough for the two them. And I didn’t want to burden their household in anyway.
I had also spoken to Carol; I told her everything that had happened excluding the supernatural. She had been dead silent the whole time and told me she’ll speak to me later. I feared that I had angered her by not speaking to her and telling her everything as soon as it happened. And I did feel guilty too…she was my mother’s best friend and treated me like her own daughter; I should have let her know. Well, never mind she knows now. Maybe when she has calmed down a little she’ll call me up and then I will apologise.
Right now I was at the beach alone just watching the waves. It was almost noon and the beach was a little crowded. I was at my favourite spot almost hidden from an outright view. I didn’t realise I had company until I a heard someone sniffing. Startled I turned to look, it was a man. From his skin tone which I had grown so accustomed to I knew he was a native, though I hadn’t been around here much. There was vague familiarity about him; I couldn’t just sit there and watch him, I went up to him.
“Excuse me? Are you alright?” I asked.
He looked up and his eyes widened in surprise and he continued to stare at him. I realised who he was, his face had changed of course, and he wasn’t the lanky boy with the happy go lucky smile on his boyish face. He had changed…the years had done that to him I guess. Or rather the wolf-gene in him. I realised that he had the same eyes as me.
“That’s right,” I nodded. He just hugged me without replying. Okay, so I wasn’t wrong. This man was definitely Seth Clearwater. My mom’s brother…my uncle.
“Hey…” I mumbled hugging him back. Tears just started to fall and I was crying again.
“It’s gonna be fine,” he comforted me.
“Sorry,” I mumbled. I was supposed to ask him if he was alright but instead I was crying and he was comforting me.
After I stopped crying we just sat there and talked, neither of us mentioned Sam. Something told me that he already knew about whatever had happened and I didn’t feel like talking about it for the third time today.
“Mom told me that someone imprinted on you.”
“Um yeah, Darren,” I blushed. He chuckled.
“He’s a good kid,” he said vaguely.
“Mhmm…” I didn’t know where this was going.
“Look, I know it’s not my place but since I’m your uncle and all,” he hesitated.
“Spit it out,” I shrugged.
“Mom told me you were living with Darren currently.”
“Oh…I didn’t have a place to go to…and I don’t want to burden Grandma and Charlie,” I defended myself.
“I understand…but I still think you shouldn’t be living with him…both of you are young and-” Awkward much? Yeah!
“Okay okay I get it,” I cut him before he could get more serious and have ‘the talk’ or anything equally embarrassing.
He chuckled once and then added, “It is my place so I’m planning on staying there until I’m here…so I don’t think it will be a problem much.”
“What about Darren then?” I asked widening my eyes.
“He always stays at his parents place when we are in town,” he simply said.
“Okay,” I nodded. Even though I loved staying with Darren, I knew Seth was right. We were too young and I myself didn’t want to end up doing something just because of circumstances, and with Darren involved I forgot my boundaries pretty soon. But I was selfish too…I didn’t want him to go away.
“How about we meet Grandma now?” he suggested. “And I want you to meet my wife and daughter of course.” He smiled. I remembered the old picture of his…the same old smile.
“Sure,” I jumped up getting excited. I loved playing with kids.
“You never told me her name,” I complained thinking of the baby girl.
“Leah,” he replied.
I was stunned. He must have really missed mom. For once I regretted that she had cut all contacts…he family missed her and they would have stood by her no matter what.
We reached Forks, Grandma and Charlie were of course happy to see me. I met Seth’s wife, my aunt-Hazel. I could she that she was perfect for Seth, and they looked so happy together. I found myself missing Darren and hoping we had something similar to what Seth and Hazel had. Before coming here we had gone to Darren’s/Seth’s place where I had left Darren and note telling him where I would be.
Then baby Leah woke up, and the first time I held her in my arms I was awed. She was just so beautiful. She had light brown hair of Hazel and Seth’s eyes. She was so tiny and perfect, I sat there the whole time cooing over her as Hazel and Grandma prepared lunch. Seth and Charlie were busy with some match…and it suited me anyway. I had some alone time with my cousin.
It was a happy time at Grandma’s; we ate lunch and then just hung out together. I got to know Hazel well, she was pretty cool. I could easily forget that she wasn’t a teenager and talk to her comfortably; she wasn’t that old though. Just twenty six years old. She asked me about Darren, and I could easily tell her without feeling embarrassed.
Seth told Grandma that I would be staying with him and Hazel back in La Push, and Grandma looked relieved. At that point I knew nobody had wanted Darren and me to live together imprint or no imprint.
We ordered pizza in and had it for dinner before leaving. The car ride back to La Push was quiet one, Leah was asleep, and Seth and Hazel were content with silence. The day had been exhausting and I longed to sleep. More than that I longed to see Darren, I had seen him in the morning but it felt like days had passed. There was an ache in my heart…I needed him now.
We reached home, Seth got the luggage and Hazel held Leah and we walked in. Darren’s car was in the driveway, so I knew he was here. My heartbeat sped and I was feeling nervous. I didn’t want Darren to leave. The door opened even before I could knock and Darren held me in his arms. I was home.
“I missed you,” he whispered holding me tighter.
“Me too,” I whispered back blushing furiously.
I could hear chuckling behind me. Finally noticing audience he let go but he had his hand on a small part of my back.
“Hey guys,” he greeted them not embarrassed at all.
“Hello Darren, been well?” Hazel smiled while Seth just stared with a raised eye brow.
I rolled my eyes. Very soon Darren will be hearing the talk, poor guy. Grinning we walked in, I was telling Darren about my day and he listened to me amused. There was a little emotion in his eyes which I couldn’t point out.
“So I guess I should be leaving,” Darren addressed Seth more.
“Sorry we didn’t inform you earlier…it was sort of an instant decision,” Seth apologised.
“Hey, why don’t you stay in another room?” I suggested. I was feeling bad that he had to leave.
“Uh, I suppose you could do that,” Seth shrugged but his tone wasn’t very enthusiastic.
“Nah…that’s alright, I usually go to mum and dad right, so it’s fine,” Darren smiled good-naturedly.
“Are you sure?” I asked.
“Positive,” he smiled again.
“Okay…” I didn’t want him to go. I hadn’t even spent time with him or even spoken properly.
After few minutes Darren left, wishing Seth and Hazel good night I went up to my room. It was weird to know that Darren wouldn’t be with me, I was missing him already. It felt like something was wrong, after the hug he hadn’t touched me much. Even when I went to drop him to the door, he had just told me good night and left. I thought he would kiss me, nothing intense…just a peck at least but he didn’t.
I realised I was just sitting on bed staring at the wall and exhausted though I was I didn’t feel like sleeping instead I was wide awake. I decided to take a bath, grabbing my clothes and a soft comfy towel I headed to the bathroom, after shampooing and cleaning myself I stood under the hot shower for a very long time. Gradually it turned cool and I stepped out of it, shivering a little I the towel around me.
Changing into my pyjamas I headed to my bed which seemed huge and cold without a certain werewolf to wrap my arms around. I couldn’t get myself into a comfortable position no matter what I tried…for a while I tossed and turned and then finally lay on my back staring at the ceiling. It was past midnight and sleep seemed to have evaded me entirely. I froze as I heard a soft thud, clutching the bed sheets I sat up looking for the sign of disturbance.
A huge shape was crouched on the floor, my lips paled. Then he stood up and I calmed down recognition dawning on me.
“Missed me?” he asked cockily.
“Oh immensely,” I grinned and made place for him to lie down next to me.
“Seth is going to murder me if he finds me in bed with you,” he chuckled as he made himself comfortable.
“Well, then you will die happy I’m sure,” I giggled.
“Mhm…” we were inches apart.
“Wait…what was wrong with you before?” I asked thinking about the time when he was so distant.
“Hmm…nothing, I was just contemplating,” he tucked a lock of my hair behind my ear.
“Contemplating?” I raised my right eye brow.
“Yes…I was thinking of the ways to get back to you.”
“You’re right! Seth is so going to murder you,” I locked my fingers in his hair…pulling him close.
“I’m going to die happy then,” he whispered and brought his lips to mine.
Very soon I was more than comfortable as we kissed and then his arms snaked around my waist, holding me. “Your hair smells nice,” he mumbled, kissing the back of my neck.
“Yeah…” I muttered disorientated.
“Sweet dreams Ade,” he kissed my cheek.
I think I mumbled a good night, but I’m not sure. I was asleep already…I was in heaven. In his arms. In love.
A/N: So, did you like it? It was sort of like a filler chapter, and it was hard for me to write it since I was going through a writer’s block. Who wants more Sam bashing?
And the next chapter is going to twist some things up!
Also, I have a new fan fiction called Returning Home, here’s its summary.
The day his daughter died, the day he killed her. He ran away. He couldn’t face the people who loved her. He was responsible for her death. He only wishes that he could forgive himself. But he knows in his heart that he’ll never. Returning Home…A Father’s Plea for Forgiveness.
I would love it if you check it out, and yeah…the most important part.
