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.

Chapter 6: Don’t leave me
That evening was the most surprising one of my whole life! I had never realized that my mom would finally decide to tell about her past, past which I belonged to. I was glad that she had told me, for years all I did was just wonder, and now I knew the truth. Right now mom was in her room, I was sure she wasn’t sleeping…probably thinking, just like me. I hated what my father had done to her, and it kind of hurt that he didn’t even know that there was a girl in this world who was his daughter, I wanted to know how he would react. I didn’t know how to feel about him, I wanted to know him, but I was sure I couldn’t. He would reject me too…like how he had done to mom. La Push, I would do research on that town soon, I wonder how it feels to live in a rainy town; I had always lived in Phoenix where rain was scarce. But I guess it would be fun living there.
Thinking about what mom had told me I fell asleep…I opened my eyes as the usual alarm clock set off. I switched it off, and rubbed my eyes, the bright light in my room wasn’t very welcoming now. I went to the bathroom and took a shower, while washing my hair, all the things mom had told me filled my head. It woke me up, I decided to spend more time with mom, maybe after school we can go for a movie or the mall and have fun. Yeah, we would do that! I smiled to myself and started drying myself. I quickly got ready; it was pretty warm so I decided on jeans and a red t-shirt with white print. I tied my hair in a messy plait and wore canvas shoes.
“Good morning Mom!” I called cheerfully as I saw her.
“Good morning honey,” she smiled.
We got our breakfast and sat down, “I was thinking of spending some time with you after school, you know, probably going to movie or mall,” I suggested.
“Yeah, I was thinking of something like that too,” she smiled.
“It’s a deal then,” I gave her a quick smile and washed up my plate and went off to get my bag.
The atmosphere of the school closing was on around us, we were asked to clean out our lockers and submit our assignments and return all the library books. Being a good student, all this work of mine was already done. I smiled listening to my friends talk about the plans for the following weekend; I was quite distant from their talk though. I simply nodded and added ‘yeah’ whenever they looked at me. After the weekend we had to attend one more day of school, which was stupid! One day’s school and then holidays…who in their right mind would keep school after the weekend? I found myself wishing today itself was the last day of school. But no such luck!
School got over, and my friends called me to come over for bowling but I told them I had other plans and walked back home. Mom was there as usual; her kindergarten classes get over soon.
“Ready mom?” I called.
“Yeah…what do we do?” she asked.
“Mall or movie?” I asked.
She took the paper out and checked out for the movies that were being shown, “No, no movie,” she rolled her eyes.
“Okay, mall then!” I smiled.
“Okay, let’s go.”
We got into a bus and reached the mall, all we did was surf through first and then, there was a great sale going on where we did our shopping, I got 2 pair of shoes, 1 skirt, 2 t-shirts and a jacket and also few accessories. Mom got a couple of shirts and trousers. We came out of the mall feeling extremely happy!
After that we got ice creams and roamed around the beach, enjoying the cold water and then sat down on the dry sand.
“Mom, can I ask you something?” I asked.
“Sure,” she nodded.
“How much similar m I to my father?” I asked.
She stared at me for a while, “You have the same texture as his hair, you sometimes talk like him, and the way you use your hands is an exact replica of his ways, and your smile…” she sighed.
“Okay…thanks,” I smiled, suddenly feeling conscious.
“Ade, how do you feel about him?” she asked.
“I m confused! I mean I hate whatever he did to you, but I don’t know, I don’t hate him, I wish I could know him,” I said sadly.
“Hmm…I m sorry,” she whispered.
“Its fine mom, I don’t think I will ever…maybe one day, one day I will meet him and he will probably know,” I just shrugged.
She squeezed my hand. It was getting dark, the sun was setting and the reddish orange light spread.
“This will always remind me of you,” I told her.
“The sunset? Why?” she asked surprised.
“Well, remember when I was really young and you had brought me to the beach? It had gotten late and the sun was setting, I was so much in awe and said ‘it’s so beautiful! Just like you!’ and you had laughed and said, ‘but to me you are beautiful,’” I smiled.
“Yeah, I remember,” she laughed.
“Okay, where shall we go now?” I asked feeling hungry.
“Wanna eat outside? I don’t feel like making dinner,” she said.
“Sure, let’s go to KFC,” I smiled widely.
“Okay,” she rolled her eyes.
We reached there and I ordered for a Zinger meal with fries and mom took the same, we got our trays and sat down, she sat there pursing her lips to stop from smiling.
“What?” I asked.
“Nothing,” she laughed.
“Mom! What?” I asked.
“Well, its just waiter, he was totally checking you out,” she winked.
“No way!” I exclaimed.
“Come-on Ade, he seems quite young, I m sure he still is in school, you need to pay attention to guys, you were acting like he wasn’t even there,” she giggled.
“Seriously mom, you act like a kid,” I rolled my eyes, just to see my eyes went up to the waiter, he was staring over us, and I turned. “Okay, let’s eat now.”
“Where’s the ketchup?” I asked mom.
“Oops, looks like our waiter forgot,” she smiled.
“Whatever, I will go get it,” I said and walked over to the counter.
“You need any help miss?” I read his badge, his name was John.
“Just a few ketchup packets John,” I smiled. He was actually good looking, blond hair, blue eyes…nice.
“Sure, here,” he handed me.
“Thank you,” I gave him a sweet smile and walked back to our table.
“That’s how you do it,” Mom teased me.
“Okay-okay, eat please!” I told her.
The weekend was fun, Saturday I hung out with my friends, our regular hang out was the bowling center, it was fun there, a few other guys had joined us, we flirted a little but it was nothing serious. One of them invited me to hang out with him in the holidays, I politely said ‘sure’ and Sunday Mom and I hung out at Carol’s place, she was there with her husband and 9 year old daughter, and later Dr. Shane joined us with his kid Evan. While the elders talked I played with Tanya and Evan. And it was Monday again! God! Why couldn’t they have started the holidays from now?!
I wore my new striped sleeveless top and cream colored shorts with a thin brown belt and strap flat shoes. This time I just tied my hair in a side pony.
“What are your plans mom?” I asked mom, her kindergarteners holidays had started.
“There’s a teachers meeting today and later I will probably buy few groceries,” she told me.
“Okay, you do that, I gotta go now…bye!” I called and went off.
The first two hours at school were free and the third hour was art, we were given a small assignment, it was fun. And then lunch, after that Physics, and then History. I wasn’t really looking forward to the period after lunch, I was sure Mr. Bates-our physics teacher would give a lengthy assignment to spoil the holidays. I just sat in the cafeteria as my friends ate, I didn’t feel like eating anything, I wasn’t hungry but I was feeling empty.
I went with Ben to the Physics class, I just sat there staring and taking whatever Mr. Bates was writing on the board. I felt like something was wrong, a part of me was missing. Just then the door opened and Mrs. Garner walked in, “Adriana Uley?” she asked.
“Yes?” I got up, why did she want me?
“Dr. Shane has come to pick you up, get your belongings and meet him the office,” she said.
“Why?” I wondered.
“I don’t know dear,” she smiled.
“Okay Miss Uley! You can leave the class…go now,” Mr. Bates said irritated.
“Okay,” I said and rushed out of the classroom and got my bag.
I saw Shane standing there; he had a sad expression on his face.
“What is it?” I asked.
“Adriana, your mom has been in an accident,” he said swallowing.
“What? Is she okay? How did it happen?” I asked feeling horrified.
“We need to reach the hospital soon,” he said.
We sat in the car and he started driving, “Shane please, tell me everything!” I pleaded.
“Your mom was walking back home from the school, and then a car came and crashed into her, the car’s breaks had failed. The driver couldn’t control,” he explained.
“Ohkay…” I breathed. “She will be fine right?” I asked with tears in my eyes.
“I don’t know Ade, she seems very critical, Carol is in the hospital, she couldn’t leave Leah, so I offered to bring you there, I was leaving when they brought her in,” he nodded.
“What about the driver?” I asked cursing the driver within.
“He’s is dead,” Shane said.
What? Omg, this is more serious than I thought…mom had to make it! She can’t leave me.
We reached the hospital and Shane led the way, Carol was sitting on a bench with her husband by her side, she was crying badly. My heart stopped.
Shane pointed to a room, I peeped in feeling afraid through the glass. Mom lay there looking most vulnerable. She was covered in bandages, her head too was, and I could see a red spot, and she was breathing through a respirator. A nurse and a doctor were there…
I felt a hand on my shoulder, “Carol!” I hugged her tight and started crying.
“Shush honey, shush,” she patted my back.
“She will be fine, right?” I asked her
She didn’t say anything, just kept patting my back, “please tell!” I exclaimed and moved away from her.
“The doctors have tried but she is very critical…the doctor says…” she stooped.
“Says what Carol?” I cried.
“She is dying,” she whispered.
My world shattered, I felt cold…numb. My mom! No!
“Oh no!” I started sobbing. Carol and Peter (Carol’s husband) sat beside me and held me.
The doctor from within came out, “How is she?” both Carol and I asked.
“You are her daughter?” he asked.
“Yes,” I told him. He looked at Carol questioningly, she nodded.
“She is not responding to anything, and she is loosing a lot of blood, we have controlled it at the moment but I don’t think we can carry on any longer.” He told us
“Any one of you can see her, she may wake up now,” he said kindly. Carol pushed me gently.
I walked absent-mindedly, all I could think was that mom was dying.
I swallowed and sat on the chair opposite to the bed, I touched my mom’s hand gently, and I felt scared. “Mom? Wake up please?” I said, tears rolled down my eyes.
“I love you mom, don’t leave me,” I stammered.
She stirred. “Mom, wake up,” a new hope formed in me. I looked at the nurse behind, she just smiled sadly.
She opened her eyes slowly. “A-de” her voice was hoarse.
“Mom!” I started crying.
“Don’t baby,” she whispered with much difficulty. She reached for my hand; I took it and held gently.
“You will be fine mom, very soon,” I told her.
“No, I won’t,” she continued in the same hoarse voice.
“Don’t say that, just relax, don’t strain yourself.” I sobbed unable to stop.
“I have to speak…I love you honey, I will…always,” the difficulty with which she spoke pained me.
“Mom, you will be fine!” I said determinedly.
“No Ade, I m dying…I can feel it…” she gave a small smile.
“Mom, I love you, please don’t leave me,” I begged.
“I will be with you---forever…” she closed her eyes and took a deep breath and opened her eyes again, “I wish I could stay…take care sweet heart, you brought me back to life…I will always be with you…” she whispered.
“I know mom,” I cried.
“Stay happy…” she told me and we just sat there for a moment.
Her eyes went up, “Carol,” she said.
“Leah!” she cried.
“Thanks for being there for me…” mom whispered.
“You are my best friend! Why wouldn’t I be?” she laughed while crying.
“Goodbye,” Mom said breathing heavily.
“Mom!” I cried. “Leah!” Carol cried.
“Adriana…Sam and my daughter…Love you…Ade…forever,” with that mom closed her eyes. She took a deep breath and seemed relaxed and then her hand fell.
“Mom!” I cried and shook her, she didn’t open her eyes...and I knew she would never.
She had left me…she had left this world! This was the worst day ever…I hugged her lifeless body and started crying even harder.
Firstly-I m so very sorry for not posting soon! I just have been so busy with college and studying that I don’t have time for myself!
And Secondly-I m so very very very sorry again! I didn’t want Leah to go this way but it had to happen guys! I have a very different story in mind...! In these few chapters I hope I have changed the way you look at Leah now, first she was a bitter, rude, selfish person but now I hope she is someone entirely different.
Please leave your thoughts…I would love to hear from you after so long!
WOW! Poor Ade.... I guess she is going to have to look Sam up now. Hopefully Sam and Emily will be welcoming... and understanding.
And... FIRST COMMENT!!!
