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.

Say no plagiarism. :)
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
not bad bt emily is gettin on my nerves bt other than that i loves it
Wow...thank you so much! :') its really amazing to get such response from a reader! Thank you! :))
UGH! What is wrong with Emily?! She really needs a reality check for real. It isn't needed to be rude and selfish. It proves that she doesn't really care about her family other wise she would never have look at Ade as 'Leah's kid" all the time, but realized that they were cousins.
Everyone who reviewed for the previous chapter thank you so much! Many of you guys had reviewed without singing in so I couldn’t personally thank them so anyway, thanks so much. Your amazing comments gave me so much to think of and try to make this as detailed as possible.
Almost all found Sam a total jerk, I m not going to defend him. It was stupid of him to let Adriana walk into the night, but according to me he was just too vulnerable and sort of lost his mind at the moment? And I cannot believe that people actually dislike Emily here, I don’t really have any personal grudge against her character in TS but I thought that she was too weak and sort of a hypocrite to enjoy all the attention while Leah suffered. And to top it all of she asked Leah to be the BRIDE’S MAID! Some sister!
As promised, I have more of Adriana and Darren! Aw!
So…hope you enjoy this chapter!
Chapter 17: Love and confessions
I watched him walk away, with his every step my heart ached. I had enough sadness in life and that was because I didn’t have any control over them but the situation with Darren couldn’t cause me sadness unless I wanted it too…and that was what I was doing.
Ignoring the cold I walked down from the bed, “Darren?” I whispered.
“You need anything?” he asked without turning.
“Yeah, please look at me,” I whispered.
He turned, but still wasn’t looking at me. I couldn’t reach till his shoulders so I settled for his arms. They were incredibly warm and inviting. I wanted to embrace him and stay in his arms forever.
“I m sorry for doing this,” I said, sadness in my every word.
“I just can’t understand why you don’t trust me!” his voice wasn’t bitter or angry; it was in pain…extreme pain.
“I want to trust you…I need you,” the last part was hardly audible.
“Really?” he asked in shock. As if this was the last thing he ever expected me to say.
“Yes,” I mumbled.
“Oh…” Our eyes met, his were bright with hope.
“Will you stay with me?” I asked.
“Of course,” he said.
We walked back to the bed; I got in and moved toward the end to make place for him.
“You want me to sleep with you?” he asked astonished. “I mean, sleep next to you?” he amended looking nervous.
“I m cold,” I smiled shyly.
“Okay,” he chuckled nervously and lay beside me.
His body was warm and I shivered. He put his hand around my shoulders pulling me closer and I leaned against his chest. We leaned back on the bed in a slightly laying down manner.
I lay there for a while trying to compose myself. I was surprised at myself on being so comfortable with a guy. And also I was trying to recollect my thoughts….deciding.
“So, what happened? Why did you leave?” he asked.
“Hmm…I-I,” I was cut off by his cell ringing.
“Hello?” he answered.
“Yeah? Don’t worry, she’s with me,” he said.
“Of course I will, you don’t have to ask for that,” he continued.
I sat up and looked at him; I knew he was talking to Sam.
“I don’t think she wants to speak to you,” he asked me with his eyes.
No. I mouthed.
“Alright, bye.” He hung up.
“What did he say?” I asked.
“First wanted me to find you, when I told you were already with me he asked me to take care of you,” he smiled.
“Oh…” it was all I could say. So lame Sam Uley.
“Tell me why you left,” Darren rubbed my arm.
“I-I-” I stuttered.
“Go on,” he said softly.
“Sam didn’t want me in his family,” I spit out the words.
“But you are his family,” Darren said confused.
“No! He doesn’t want me to be a part of his happy family, he doesn’t want me to be with them, he rejected me just like what he did to mom, he abandoned her first and now me!” I was crying again.
“He kicked you out of the house?” Darren asked horrified.
“No…but I couldn’t stay there any more, not when-not when he said he doesn’t want me…” I hugged myself. He looked helpless, arms stretched out but hesitant.
“He said the same things he told mom! I just hate it! Why did he do it? Is Emily the only one who means everything? I came here to find my father…call him Dad…I wanted a family! I wouldn’t have come here if Mom was there with me, I was so very happy with her…but she’s gone! I knew had to come here…I wish mom was alive,” I was sobbing.
Darren stiffened in the end.
“What do you mean?” he asked shocked.
“Huh?” I stared at him.
“What did you say about Leah?” he whispered.
I froze. “Adriana?” he spoke my name like adults did when they had to make their child accept their mischief.
“Yeah?” I mumbled.
“What did you tell about your mom?” he asked in the same tone.
I just stared at him for a while…I didn’t want to hide this anymore! I was done with secrets.
“She’s dead,” the pain in my heart was as evident as ever.
“What? But I thought-I-” he wasn’t able to complete his sentence.
“Car accident…I stayed with Carol, her best friend, but I felt very lost and so lonely! I cried all the time! I wasn’t ready to lead a life without her…I love her. I wanted a family, I wanted to feel cared for,” I broke down.
Darren hugged me patting me and comforting me.
“Why didn’t you tell Sam this?” he asked.
“I-I didn’t want him to accept me just because I didn’t have any family,” I told him the truth.
“Oh honey,” he finally pulled me into a hug. Oh my god. Sigh! I didn’t want to let go of him ever. I loved Darren. I really loved him. and I needed as well as want him.
I cried for a while, all those secrets that I had hidden in me were out. And now I felt light…calm almost.
Darren was lying on the bed with his arms around me and I lay on top of him. I knew he wasn’t asleep, his thumb moved in concentric circles on my shoulders. Thoughts were running through my mind crazily! I wanted Darren but I didn’t want to betray mom but what would she have wanted for me if she were here? I was right now lying on the bed with him, and after telling him everything we were past all the walls that I had built around me. Should I still stay away from him? But it hurt and didn’t feel right…at all. I thought about staying with him…accepting his love and confessing that I loved him too. I swallowed, tensed.
“Darren?” I whispered feeling shy.
I was feeling so nervous…when I had been telling him everything I hadn’t felt any awkwardness or anything, when he had hugged me I had let him. And now I lay against him…everything thing was quiet. I registered the closeness of us and my heart started thudding ferociously. I could hear the blood pounding in my ears.
“Yeah?” he asked.
I moved up in such a way that he was still lying on the bed and now I could look at his face. Our faces were just inches apart.
Both of us felt the change…he probably could hear the thudding of my heart more than clearly and I saw him get nervous. I even noticed a slight blush under his russet coloured skin. Wow…he was so handsome…so dazzling. I was lost in his warm brown eyes...lost.
“Y-yeah?” I noticed the trembling in his voice.
I smiled, I wasn’t the only one affected by him. He was too by me….and that gave me intense pleasure.
“I was wondering…” I started.
“Hmm…” he said and swallowed nothing.
“And I was thinking about us,” I told him.
“About us?” he smiled.
“Yeah…I mean, are we like together?” I asked hesitatingly. I m so stupid! Who asks right away?
“Eh, we didn’t decide that but I would like it if we were but if you don’t want to-” he started blabbering.
“No stop…I don’t understand imprinting, are you forced to love me?” I whispered.
“Uh…oh…no, I don’t think that,” he sighed.
“How can you be so sure?” I asked frowning moving away.
“Look, I know from what you have seen and been through, you have every right to question what I feel for you. But Adriana…what I feel for you is so much more, I m ready to do anything for you!” he explained.
“Exactly, that’s my point, would you have even looked at me twice or felt half this way if you were just human and not imprinted on me,” I argued.
“I would have found you any way,” he stated.
“What do you mean?” I asked.
“You and I are perfect for each other, you are my soul mate and imprinting on you just made me find you the easy way,” he smiled a little.
“You really think that?” I asked hesitantly. With all the questions I was asking him now I shouldn’t be feeling like kissing him.
“Yes, I do.” he sighed.
“Why?” I mumbled. I didn’t know where our discussion was going, I should have just shut my mouth.
“Look, when I first saw you my whole life changed. Nothing mattered more to me than you, it felt like everything I had seen and known before didn’t matter anymore because everything precious to me was going to start with you. It pains when I m away from you, it hurts me bad. I want to give you all the happiness in the world, I want to be yours…and again I’m aware that you don’t have the best opinion of what I feel for you, but Adriana, I’m not Sam.” I didn’t realised I was crying until his warm fingers wiped my cheek.
“You’re right, I don’t have the best opinion of all this,” I mumbled. “I hate it infact!”
He just stared at me without any expression.
“But I…ugh!” I sort of screamed.
“Adriana, calm down. You aren’t ready for a relationship with me, so its alright, take your time until you feel the same as I do…I don’t mind being a friend to you,” he said.
“But I do love you! Crazily! And all I want to do is kiss you!” I exclaimed.
“Really?” a slow smile spread across his lips. I tried not to stare at them.
“Yeah,” I sighed. There, I told him how I feel!
“Adriana, do you want to be my girlfriend?” he asked, his eyes shining.
“I think I do,” I whispered blushing furiously.
“Wow,” he stroked my cheek.
“So…” I leaned close to him staring at his eyes.
“So…” he repeated understanding at once.
Placing his hand around my waist and sitting up slightly he pulled me close to him.
“You are so beautiful,” he whispered huskily. His sweet mint breath was inviting.
“You are too…” I mumbled. So much for being inexperienced. Did I mention that my heart was fighting to get out of my chest?
Unable to wait any longer I kissed his lips. He froze. I felt weird when I didn’t get any response from him. Feeling a little hurt I moved back. Maybe he didn’t want to or maybe he didn’t like it…I couldn’t look at him.
But all of a sudden, I wasn’t on top of him. He had gently moved me and now I was lying under him. My heart beat increased like before. He chuckled and his eyes were playful. I smiled…he was so cute!
He bent down…I closed my eyes. His lips touched my forehead…my eyelids…my cheek…my nose…my chin…the electricity and spark between us was immense. My hand wound involuntarily around his neck pulling him closer. And then finally his lips touched mine…again.
This was the best feeling…I couldn’t get used to it. I wanted him…I loved him so very much. I needed him.
“I love you.” I managed to say between the kiss.
“I love you…” he panted kissing back passionately.
It felt so good to touch him, feel his taut muscles and it felt even better when his lips explored me. Never crossing the line but enough to leave me breathless and wanting more. With every passing second I enjoyed more and more.
I didn’t know how long this went, but the whole time I didn’t want it to end. Darren was someone very special in my life and I had known it all along. But it was tonight that I actually realised it. He was my soul mate…my werewolf. I was content. I had accepted him. and now I realised that I had hurt him all along by rejecting him as Sam had done to Mom.
I didn’t know whether this was the best night or the worst. I had left my father’s place and he had told me that he didn’t want me any more…I had been in so much pain. What happened with mom had been repeated with me. And Darren had comforted me. This brought me closer to him…emotionally and mentally.
This was complicated. I should be sad and angry but I wasn’t. Maybe it’s true when they say that the best comes out of the worst. Weird. Or maybe not. Okay, I didn’t know what I was thinking; I couldn’t…concentrate…not when he was kissing me in such an intense passionate manner. And I responded with equal passion. Tonight I was going to make up for all the times I should I just kissed him.
Okay, I m some what not satisfied with the chapter I mean the explanations and all but that’s the best I could do considering that my finals start on Friday! But I hope you liked it. Forgive me for any writing errors; I don’t have time to recheck. Adriana is so confused but who is strong willed enough to not do what she did right? And I had to give you Adriana and Darren…romantically involved! So did you love them?
Last chapters reviews were simply amazing guys! I hope I get the same response this time so that I post an awesome drama and romance filled chapter next time. Your reviews gave me so many more ideas and an insight. But unfortunately I wont be able to write for a while because I really have to concentrate on my exams. So the bad news is I wont be posting for the rest of the March, maybe I’ll treat you with a nice long chapter on first of April.
Thanks and bear with me.
