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
A/N: Well well well…hey! Here’s another update and its long! Have fun reading it.
Chapter 22: Unsaid thoughts
I couldn’t believe what Adriana had told me, and I was furious! She was like my own daughter; I practically raised her with Leah. I was there when she uttered her first word and first everything and she was family. And I promised Leah to take care of her.
“Calm down, we’ll work it out.” Peter, my husband comforted me.
“I just can’t believe his nerve! Fine…he didn’t want Leah, alright. But Ade is his own blood! His daughter!”
“I know…I know, I can’t believe it either.”
“I’m going there; I’m going to get her back! She’s not staying in La Push; I’ll make sure of that.” I promised.
“We’ll get her back,” Peter agreed.
When Adriana had called and told me everything I was surprised. I thought that she had been enjoying her stay there and my thoughts about Sam had taken a turn. She had even mentioned about a guy and she just sounded more like herself; but this was all too sudden. I just couldn’t react! I had been quiet the whole conversation my anger increasing at Sam at her every word.
“Hey…you with me?”
“Yeah, we’ll get her back.” I hugged Peter. He hugged me back holding me close.
I decided to go to La Push just by myself. Peter wanted to be there, but I told him I’ll handle it by myself. Reluctantly he agreed. I booked an airline ticket which departed early in the morning. I planned on returning that very evening after giving Sam my piece of mind and bringing Adriana back!
After my plane landed at Port Angeles, I ordered a taxi and headed out to La Push. I was living my childhood memories again as I passed through the roads. The dull rainy sky, the green trees and wet mud. It was so much different that Phoenix. Well, I loved Phoenix better anyway. I vaguely remembered my way around but once we entered La Push I knew exactly where to go.
“Thank you.” I paid the taxi driver and headed out.
I was outside Sam Uley’s house, it was almost the same, just had been repainted over the years.
It was still early and I hoped he hadn’t left for work, whatever he was doing now anyway. Feeling determined I walked up to his door and knocked twice.
“Yes?” a woman very distantly resembling to Leah stood in front of me.
“Emily, is Sam there?” I asked.
“Uh…I’m sorry who are you?” her eyes narrowed in confusion.
“It’s Carol, I’m here to see Sam,” my anger was getting better of me.
“Okay…come-on in,” she was still confused. I bet she didn’t recognise me.
I headed inside placing my duffel by the door and followed her into the living room. She entered the kitchen which was visible from where I sat and started talking, “Sam is taking a bath, he’ll be down any moment. Muffins?” she offered with a smile.
“No, thanks.” I was feeling uncomfortable, I was about to shout at her husband and she was offering me muffins. Perfect.
“I insist,” she put the plate in front of me. “Everybody loves them.” She beamed. Did she always smile so much? Bet she was happy now that Adriana was gone. I looked around searching for anything that hinted she must have stayed here. Nothing. That just solidified my determination.
Just then I heard someone coming down from the stairs. About time.
“Sam honey there’s someone here to see you.”
“Oh.” At the same time Sam had stopped staring at me in surprise.
“Hello Sam,” I stood up.
“Where’s she?” I asked getting straight to the point.
“I’m not sure who you’re talking about.” Confusion completely across his face.
“Of course! How will you know who?! Silly me!” I exclaimed sarcastically. Emily had joined him now, her eyes narrowed all the warmth leaving her face.
“You wanna know who was there for Leah when she was pregnant and had a child? Certainly not you! You didn’t even want her.” I scoffed.
“It’s not my fault! I didn’t know she was pregnant! She didn’t tell me!” he growled.
“Like you would have taken her back and loved her! You were crazy over her weren’t you?” I pointed at that witch standing by his side.
“Don’t drag Emily into this!” his eyes flashed.
“But why Sam? Isn’t she the cause of all your problems?! You dumped Leah after promising her everything because of her! And yet again you dump your daughter because of her! Have you lost your mind?! She’s your daughter! Your own!
“I promised Leah I’ll take care of her daughter and I didn’t want her to come here and meet you, and you know why? Because I knew she was going to get hurt. Just like her mother! And you didn’t prove me wrong. Congrats.” I was on the verge of letting out my angry tears.
“I didn’t mean for it to happen,” he choked.
“Yeah right! She just wanted to come to you because she wanted to know you! Meet her father, her family! And you just threw her away. You hurt her! But I’ll assure you one thing, she doesn’t need you. Not at all! She has enough people to care for her! You carry on caring for your wife…your true family. I pity you.
“Now, just let me know where she is. I’m taking her back.”
I had woken up alone in bed and looked around in confusion, was last night my imagination? Had I so desperately wanted Darren that I was hallucinating?
Sorry had to leave early…couldn’t risk Seth finding out. Hope you had a nice night.
Will see you soon officially. :P
Ohkay, I didn’t hallucinate. It was so sweet of him to leave a note. Smiling widely from ear to ear I brushed my teeth and headed down to grab something to eat. Hazel was already in the kitchen; she had set up lot of sandwiches on the counter and was still making more. Baby Leah was straddled securely in her car seat and place on the table.
“Good morning,” I said brightly.
“Morning,” Hazel replied.
“Hello there cutie pie, did you sleep well?” I crooned. Leah just spoke to me in her baby language and let me play with her tiny hands.
“Where’s Seth?” I asked seating myself.
“He’s still in the shower…Leah kept him up last night.” She giggled.
“Aw, that’s cute.” I smiled. “Oh my gosh this tastes heavenly!” I exclaimed after taking the first bite of the sandwich.
“I have been told that before,” Hazel laughed.
“Truly…I could go on eating. Like forever.”
“I love to cook,” she said.
“Seth’s a happy man.” I giggled.
“You can say that…though I’m sure he would have loved me the same even if I served him garbage.” She joked.
“I’m not so sure honey,” Seth said entering the kitchen. He walked up to Hazel and placed a sloppy kiss on her lips.
Smiling to myself I looked away, it was their private moment, and they looked cute. A real proper family. A loving father and mother who would do anything for their kid and each other; this baby girl was so lucky.
“Hey? You alright kiddo?” Seth asked sitting opposite me.
“Yeah.” I nodded while smiling. No need for them to know what I was thinking now.
“Okay,” I smiled easily and took Leah into his arm and starting cooing. They were adorable; he was going to be a great dad! Actually, he already was.
With another plate of sandwiches Hazel joined us and placed Leah back in the car seat adjusting her milk bottle so that it wouldn’t fall off. She continued to sip it contently as we ate.
After breakfast I headed up to get ready for the day; I readied hot water in the tub and added lavender scents. While the water filled in the tub I went through my clothes looking for an outfit. The clothes that Sam had brought me where still dumped in their covers at the corner of my wardrobe. Lazily I went through rest of my clothes, maybe Darren and I could hang out for a while later? I decided to go with a dark blue floating top tightened a little at the waist and black knee length leggings.
After my long relaxing bath, I dried myself and applied body lotion and got ready. I tied my hair into a one sided messy braid and wore my ballet flats and headed out. I could hear muffled voices which only got clearer as I went down.
“…I know you care Seth, but-” I heard a familiar voice.
I reached the end of the stairs and entered the living room; to my intense surprise and welcome Carol sat there.
“Carol!” I ran to her and hugged her.
“Hey Ade, how are you?” she whispered.
“I’m good, you?” I asked after releasing her. I was feeling a little worried. The last time I had spoken to her she was almost non responsive.
“I’m alright,” she shrugged.
“You sure?” I asked, still worried. She had a grim expression on her face.
I looked around, Seth looked worried.
“What’s going on?”
“Why don’t you sit?” Carol suggested.
I nodded and sat down on the edge of the couch waiting nervously.
“So?” I asked when nobody seemed in a mood to talk.
“Alright…Ade, I’m here to take you back.”
“I know you came here to meet Sam, and he did exactly what I feared he would. There’s no point in waiting here,” her expression softened as her eyes met mine.
“B-but...” I didn’t know how to react. “What are you saying?”
“Come back to Phoenix honey,” she squeezed my hand.
“Listen Carol, she has a family here! Sam isn’t the only one.” Seth interrupted.
“Family who didn’t know she existed!”
“It’s not our fault we didn’t know!” Seth argued.
“Seth…I understand but I’m not here to argue with you. Leah wanted me to take care of her.”
“Stop it!” I ordered. Both of them looked at me in silence. “It’s my choice, my decision.”
“Adriana, you know I’m looking out for you.” Carol smiled sadly.
“Yeah I know, and thank you for that. But Carol, I want to stay here. Phoenix doesn’t feel like home anymore…not without mom.” I pleaded.
“Yeah he was a jerk! Big time…but not everyone has their share of best daddies right?” I tried to reason out. It sounded like I was convincing myself more than convincing Carol.
“Yeah…not everybody,” Carol agreed.
“Thank you for caring, it feels really good but it wouldn’t be fair if I just left. I want to stay here, and Sam is not the only family I have,” I looked at Seth and gave him a comforting smile.
Carol stared at me for a very long while.
“Are you sure?” she asked.
“Yes,” I smiled.
“And there’s nothing I can do to change your mind?”
“I’m sorry.” I mumbled.
“You don’t know how much like Leah you are and I’m not speaking of the way you look,” she smiled finally.
I didn’t know how true that was and if it was then it was flattering. I loved mom and had looked up to her and being like her just made me happy. But I just knew I wanted to stay here. I did have a family here and I had found love too. Darren. Mom never forced her beliefs on me; she wanted me to form my own opinions. I sighed. This was hard.
Carol left us that very evening since she had work the next day. She made me promise that I would call her and tell her everything and I gratefully obliged. Darren had come to meet me dressed up chicly in dark denim jeans and a yellow tee and a blazer; Carol had given me a knowing look and a grin.
Right now I was with Darren on the beach, he had taken me to a restaurant for dinner and since we had returned early we decided to stay at the beach for a while. I had told me everything over a dinner and he had watched me quietly. After that we had been pretty silent making small talk. I knew something was on his mind and was waiting for him to ask me.
The sky was clear and filled with stars and the moon brightly lit. We were seated on the sand and it was pretty windy. But it was impossible to feel cold when Darren’s arms were circled around my waist holding me close to his chest. His warm cheek rested on my head as I played with his fingers both of us watching the waves.
“Um Ade?” Darren broke the silence.
“I was wondering about what you had told me.” Here it comes, I smiled.
“And?” I said softly.
“Well…it’s rather stupid,” he sounded hesitant.
“What is it Darren?” I freed myself and turned to face him.
My breath hitched. He looked so cute when he was nervous; fighting the urge to kiss him I waited for him to talk.
“Come on, you can say it.” I was very curious to know.
“Why did you stay back?”
I raised my eye brow in surprise. “You didn’t want me to?” I asked.
“No! I mean, of course I want to here, I love you.” He mumbled.
“I told you the reason…I wanted to stay.”
“Did I…did I cross you mind?” he didn’t look at me.
“You mean were you a reason I stayed back?” I suppressed a smile.
“Uh, yeah that.” He nodded pursing his lips.
“Hmm…actually you did.” I nodded keeping a straight face. He looked so serious, I didn’t want to start laughing and hurt his feelings or anything.
“I did?” he asked.
“Duh!” I rolled my eyes.
“The thing is…I don’t want to hold you back.”
“I mean, if you want to go you-”
“Darren…” I stopped him from making himself miserable. “You were part of my reasons okay. Reasons which is plural. I didn’t go because I wanted to stay here and this feels right.” I rubbed his shoulders.
“Oh.” It was hard to tell under the moonlight but I guess he was blushing. “Made a fool of myself huh?” he chuckled nervously.
“Not more than the usual,” I teased.
“Sorry I just was…uh…I don’t know…I mean…it’s all…” He looked uncomfortable.
Instead of waiting for him to form a perfect sentence I pressed my lips to his. And I think he understood my feelings because he kissed back with equal passion.
“Darren?” I mumbled between the kissing.
“Hmm?” he said against my lips.
“It wasn’t…stupid…at all.”
A/N: Hope you liked it.
