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.

Chapter 23: A Drunken Man’s Mistake
Few days had passed since Carol had showed up at La Push, and since my decision to stay here, I had been staying with Seth and his family. And Darren was back at his parents place. He did come over at night though, not regularly, but as much as possible. Today, Seth and Hazel had taken baby Leah to the beach, and then had plans to go to grandma’s place, they had asked me whether I wanted to come, but as I hadn’t spent time with Darren alone, I had declined.
Darren had just arrived an hour ago; both of us were seated on the couch watching baseball, well, he was watching it. I was simply staring.
I took a deep breath and looked at Darren, he didn’t really look like he was paying attention…there was a vague deep-in-thought expression on his face.
“You okay?” I asked. Today, for some reason…I could feel that he was distracted.
He turned to me, smiled and said, “Nothing.” Wrapping his arms around my waist, he pulled me to him, and buried his face in my hair. “You smell nice,” he whispered.
“Yeah right,” I rolled my eyes, knowing that he was trying to distract me. I had tried a couple of time to get what happened out of him, but he had successfully managed to trail away from the topic.
“You do smell good,” he chuckled, nuzzling my neck.
“Ooh! It tickles,” I giggled.
“I’m glad,” he harrumphed, and then after a few tugs from me, moved away and sighed.
Again, the expression settled on his face. “What’s wrong?” I repeated.
“Nothing,” he shrugged, leaning against the couch.
“Come-on…you can tell me,” I encouraged, feeling curious.
He didn’t say anything. “Did something happen at the patrol?” I questioned him.
“Look, you don’t need to be bothered by it, its nothing,” he smiled a little, stroking my cheek.
“Then, why won’t you tell me?” I asked, biting my lip nervously.
“It’s nothing Ade, relax,” he shrugged.
“Fine!” Pursing my lips, I turned toward the TV.
We didn’t say anything…and my mind started racing. Why was I so curious about it? If something I really needed to know had happened, then Darren would have definitely told me, without me asking. He wouldn’t hide it…but he seemed so tensed, I just wanted to help. Okay, if he didn’t want to tell me stuff, I shouldn’t force it, right? Yeah, I shouldn’t. I didn’t own him! And I was not going to turn into those possessive girlfriends, who wanted to know how every second of their guy’s time was spent. I was just embarrassing myself by sulking.
“Hey…” he said softly, before I could say anything.
“Look, its fine,” I shook my head, and gave him a smile. “It really is.”
“I had a fight with Alex,” he said, ignoring what I had just told him.
“He spoke things about you…and I just snapped! God! You should have seen me, I attacked him…I hurt him!” he was trembling.
“Are you alright?” I asked, rubbing his shoulder.
His eyes were closed, but as soon as I touched him, he relaxed. I was feeling horrible from within. No matter how bad Alex was, he and Darren were best friends! And because of me, Darren had lost him. Because of me…he was going through this.
“I’m sorry,” I whispered.
“No, don’t be; it’s not your fault,” he shook his head, and looked at me.
“Feels like it is,” I shrugged.
“Look, Alex is very…different; he was just looking for a reason. With all that’s going on with him and his family, he just needed a reason, he was just trying to anger me…he succeeded. I snapped, I shouldn’t have done that, but I just couldn’t stop myself,” he sighed.
“Why don’t you talk to him tomorrow?” I suggested.
“Maybe I should…its time things get clear between us,” he sighed again.
“Yeah…” I offered a small smile.
“I know things are hard on him…and I want to be there for him, but I can’t when he’s being a jerk!”
“What’s going on with him?” I asked, confused. Was he on drugs or something? Or maybe he finally fell for someone and she rejected him? Uh…I don’t know!
Darren stared at me for a while, and then started speaking, “Actually, its not just him…even Sam and Emily are going through a hard time.”
“Wh-what?” I questioned, raising my eye-brow.
“Yeah, well…nobody’s speaking to them at the moment. Sam’s isn’t much of an active part in the tribe anymore; it’s only during patrols anybody listens to him.” Darren shrugged.
I watched him open mouthed, I certainly wasn’t expecting this.
“Why?” I wondered out loud.
“Adriana, did you actually think that Sam was going to get away with what he did?” Darren spoke wisely, cupping my cheek.
“I don’t understand,” I mumbled.
“Sweetheart…we are much closer as a tribe. And whatever happened to you, we couldn’t just ignore it! And if you didn’t have Seth or your grandma, someone else would have come forward. You’re as much as a part of this tribe as anyone else is…maybe even more than some! Obviously, the elders weren’t just going to stay put. So, a tribe meeting was held…they wanted Sam to apologise and talk to you, but Sam and Emily weren’t being much helpful, so the tribe has decided to ignore them. There’s even talk going to about terminating Sam’s alpha powers, but that’s not something that can be done easily, but…his decisions have disgusted all of us. Now, the rest of the tribe is ignoring them…no one’s talking to them unless it’s absolutely necessary.”
Tears welled up in my eyes; people here were much closer than I had assumed. “They really did that?” I whispered.
“Yeah…they did.” He smiled, squeezing my hand.
“Wow…” I mumbled. “I didn’t expect that…at all.”
“I know,” he spoke quietly, pulling me against his chest.
“When did this happen?” I asked.
“Umm…a few days back,” he said vaguely.
I didn’t reply, choosing to just think about everything he had told me. Just then a sudden realisation hit me, “Wait! Is that the reason Alex is angry?” I moved back to look at his face.
“Don’t lie,” I pressed.
“It’s one of the reasons,” Darren muttered, looking sad.
“I’m sorry Darren!” I apologised sincerely. I was the reason he lost his best friend…and I wasn’t making things better even now.
“Hey! I don’t want you to blame yourself! Alex, he had problems even before. He needs to deal with them…and when I imprinted on you; he didn’t have any reason to be angry about it. He knows how it is, but he just refused to accept it. It’s not your fault…it’s his. And to be honest, I’m glad that this happened to him…I’m just hoping that he takes it in a good way and grow up and learn that not everything will happen as he wants it to.”
“It just sad!” I sighed, not feeling any better.
“Yeah…” he sighed too.
“I wish things were different,” I mumbled, hugging him again.
“Its gonna get better…soon, I promise,” he whispered, comforting me.
“I hope so,” I replied.
Everything was just so dramatic at the moment, Sam and Emily being ignored by the rest of the tribe, adding to Alex being the usual pain…I bet they hated me! Instead of voicing my thoughts, I kept them to myself, because I knew that Darren would come up with something against it to comfort me. I wasn’t even sure how I would react if I came face to face with any of them…I just prayed that I wouldn’t. I don’t think I could handle any more drama. I just wanted a little bit of normalness around me.
“So, wanna watch a movie?” Darren asked.
“Sure,” I agreed readily.
This indeed was normal…and I was going to hold onto that; as long as I can.
He growled and snapped at me! I tried to fight back but Darren was a better fighter…a lot better than me.
He was fighting me! His best friend! For that bi-
I howled in pain! This was the most painful bite!
Both of you STOP! The alpha’s order was obvious.
I lay on the forest floor, whimpering and bleeding; Darren’s knees buckled under the alpha’s law, but he continued to growl.
What is wrong with you?! Dad shouted.
Darren just let out another growl; he didn’t stop himself from thinking about what I had said about his little [vulgarity removed]. Darren snapped his head and growled ferociously, Dad stopped him from advancing toward me by pulling him by his feet.
Darren, stop! Alex! You will not be unkind to Adriana! He ordered both of us. Neither of us said anything, Darren…phase back…go home.
Darren just huffed, and ran away from us, toward the trees. Within seconds, we felt his mind leave the pack.
Are you alright? Dad asked.
I will be…I grunted. I was a wolf after all.
Within another few minutes, my wounds had healed, and I was able to phase back to human without any scratch on me. Dad had stayed with me, waiting.
We walked out of the woods in silence, he didn’t comment about our fight, I didn’t know whether to feel glad or not. It wasn’t like he would side with me anyway; it was about his darling daughter after all. Why would he stand by me?
“Tell something!” I still said, unable to bear the silence.
“What?” he asked, vaguely.
“I don’t know…” I felt so childish.
“I don’t like the change in you…” he sighed. “At least, we need to stick together now-”
“Whoa! What change Dad? I have always been like this! It’s you who has changed!” I shouted at him. He was actually blaming me?
He stared at me for a while, “I’m the same Alex…” he said silently, but we both knew what the truth was.
“Who are you trying to fool, Dad? You love your renegade daughter more than you love me…more than you love mom!” I exclaimed, trembling in anger.
“And we didn’t leave you dad! Mom and I are still by your side! I bet she wouldn’t have even bothered to come if her mother was alive! Just because she has no other means to live, she is here…this is better than an orphanage, right?!” I spat.
I stalked off, leaving him alone. I didn’t want to hear his explanation…I didn’t want to hear his pathetic excuses! I just wanted to get away from him…get away from everything that was happening ever since his daughter came to La Push.
I continued to walk, with no sense of direction…feeling angry, with each passing second. I could have easily phased and gone for a run, venting my anger through my strength. But I didn’t want to be surrounded by another group of Adriana-lovers.
I didn’t realise where I was until I recognised the familiar path leading to a bar, it was the dark dingy part of La Push. Well it wasn’t exactly in the town, sort of on the outskirts. At least I wouldn’t run into any familiar faces that would look at me disgustedly over here! I just headed into the bar trying to drink away my misery and try to forget my woes. It would take a long while though.
There weren’t many people around; the night had just started, I headed to the corner of the long table and sat on the chair, and ordered my drink, the barman got it without much thought on whether I was legal or not, it didn’t really matter though. I looked old and scary enough. And there was no way I was going to loose any fight if anything happened.
I lost the count of my drinks after the thirtieth glass, by then; the bar seemed to have filled up.
“Planning on drinking the whole joint?” the man next to me asked.
Rubbing my eyes, I looked at him. He didn’t look any special, it was hard to look at his face anyway, since he had his hood up, but his stature said that he was having problems too. Of course! People who had problems or were alcoholics were the only one who visited this dingy place.
“Maybe,” I mumbled disinterestedly, turning away.
“Bad day?” he asked.
“You could say that,” I shrugged, finishing off the glass in my hand at one go and ordering another.
“Girlfriend making life hell I presume,” he laughed, his voice slurring a little.
“More like step-sister from hell,” I growled, my hand clenching into a fist.
“Ah…” he said vaguely.
Between drinks, I found myself telling this stranger on how she had turned up few weeks ago and turned our lives upside down, he offered few comforting “Hmm’s” and “ah…too bad’s” and that was enough. And with each drink, I found my mind becoming less active and my voice slurring a bit more. It took quite a long while for a wolf to loose his mind completely, but it seemed like I was trying well. I just drank glass after glass until I felt I could no more. All of a sudden this place seem too small and crowded, I stood up and started walking mostly tumbling over my feet and leaning on the chairs.
The cold wind greeted me as I stepped out, my vision was blurred and my head felt heavy. After few seconds, I walked off grumbling to myself.
I was thinking of her again…Adriana…how I wished something would happen to her! How I wished she would die!
“Oops!” I stumbled on the road.
Suddenly, someone was beside me. “Look, you’re too drunk to be on your own man,” I recognised the voice of the stranger, who had sat beside me at the bar. I stared at him, trying to register his face, it was just blurred though.
“I-uh---will—leave,” I mumbled.
He mumbled something. Saluting a bye, I started walking forward, “Hey wait!” he called again, sounding less drunk than he had before…I think?
“Do you know her?” he asked, holding his cell phone in front of me.
I stared at the girl in the photo, and anger filled me again. I couldn’t bear to look at her face. If I wasn’t trashed now, I bet I would have phased at that very moment.
“That’s her! That’s Adriana…” I said shrilly.
“Look…I need to find her, help me!” he begged.
“Wait…why do you have her picture?” I asked him, confused.
“I need to find her!”
“Why?” I questioned, still confused.
“I’m a friend from home,” he said.
“Will you take her back?” I found myself asking.
“Of course,” his voice sounded vague. I told him everything about her, where she lived, hung out, and whatever else he asked, and in return made him promise to take her away.
After that, I walked forward, into an alley. It was all dark; I stumbled over something and fell over! My body lurched forward and I started puking my guts out. When it felt like I had nothing left in; I leaned against the mucky wall and drifted off to sleep.
Next morning the last thing I remembered was drinking at the bar. I didn’t know how I had ended up between garbage. Realising I had probably drunk more than I should have I didn’t give it another thought or even try to recall what had happened.
A/N: Well? What do you think? Any guesses on the mystery guy? I hope I did a satisfactory job on the drunken talk…?
Btw…I’m a little out of inspiration for the next chapter, do you guys have any ideas or suggestions? I’ll work on them. Or do you want a Sam’s POV?
Also, we are 10 chapters (or even less) close to the ending! *just a wanted you to know*
Hope you enjoyed reading this…I love to hear from you guys, your comments give me ideas! This story wouldn’t have gone in some ways if it hadn’t been for you guys!
Anyway, please do review! =)
Mystery guy is the guy from the hotel!!!!!!!!!!! Oh, please, please, please post more soon! I cannot wait to see what happens!
Um...next chapter I really want to see what mystery guy does...or hear more from Alex...but if you don't want to move it along that fast Sam's POV would be cool too. :)
why cant sam see that he's been an isiot, and that emily and alex are making him turn his daughter away, mostly emily, but come on, sam needs to see how much of an isitot he has been.
Sam, Emily and Alex are being idiots!! Why couldn't they just accept Ade?? Its the least they could do after they tore apart Leah and making her leaving La Push! Alex is just being a jerk and needs to act more mature!
I want to know more about the mystery guy!! Who is he? Why he is asking for Ade?
koolz love it.............................write more soon :)
this looks promising. send me updates.
