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
Chapter 10: Imprinted.
"When I looked at you...and you looked back, both of us felt the change.
The only difference is-you knew the reason, and I didn't."
He had stuffed one of the rice cakes in his mouth and was now looking at me in a strange way.
“Er, hello,” I waved.
“Who is she?” he turned away rudely without saying another thing to me.
“That’s Adriana, she is your half-sister,” Sam told him.
“What? Stop joking,” he rolled his eyes.
“That’s not a joke Alex,” Sam continued.
“Mom?” he looked at Emily. She simply nodded.
“Okay, this is weird,” he looked at me again. I hated this boy instantly! Who did he think he was? So rude, so self-centered, so idiotic!
“Alex?” Sam raised his eye brows.
“Yeah, hey,” he looked at me. This was the worst introduction ever!
“Hi,” I smiled just a bit.
“How is she your daughter?!” he asked Sam glaring at him.
“I used to date her mom a long while back…we broke up after I imprinted on Emily, she left then, I didn’t know she was pregnant,” Sam looked uncomfortable.
“Oh. How old are you?” he asked.
“Sixteen,” I answered.
“Well, you maybe older than me by one year, but still I m the elder one,” he rolled his eyes.
How childish is this? “I don’t really care dude,” I told him.
“Perfect,” he nodded and turned to his plate.
I just stared at him with a ‘what is wrong with you?’ ‘Are you crazy? - Type of expression.
“Alex can be that way at times, but he will be normal soon,” Sam laughed.
After the lunch, I went back to “my” room and started unpacking. I was going to stay here for a while so I might as well make myself comfortable. The door opened, Alex stood there, and “you busy?” he asked.
“Not really, what is it?” I asked surprised.
“Nothing, just wanted to know my half sister,” he shrugged.
“Oh, okay,” I was still surprised.
He came and sat on the bed and started watching me as I took the clothes and placed them in the wardrobe.
“Don’t you have any other work?” I asked feeling irritated.
“Dad left for patrolling and mom back to work, and there is nothing interesting on TV, so I thought I would come and bug you,” he stated.
I just rolled my eyes and didn’t answer; I didn’t like him at all.
“This is your mother? Leah Clearwater?” he asked. Apparently he was much more informed now than he was few minutes earlier.
I looked up at him; he held a picture of me and mom together and was staring at it.
“Yeah, give that back,” I took it from him.
“Funny how my dad used to date her and imprinted on her cousin,” he scoffed.
“Yeah extremely funny,” I gritted my teeth.
“Why did you come here?” he asked looking irritated.
“I came to see my dad,” I told him.
“Yeah sure, when are you going back?” he snorted.
“I don’t know, why?” I asked narrowing my eyes.
“Because I don’t like you! Because I want to see you leave my family and go back to where to come from,” he stood up and spoke angrily.
“What’s your problem?” I asked.
“You are my problem, I don’t want anyone else in my family, and definitely not a sister!” he said arrogantly.
“I m going to be here as long as I want to, and you can do nothing to get me out,” I replied coldly.
“Don’t be so sure about that,” he walked out of the room.
I wanted to throw something at him! God! He is such a pain.
It took me a while to calm down, I banged the door shut and put on high music and continued unpacking. After finishing I went and sat on the bed, holding the photograph, automatically tears started falling; I felt like a stranger here, I obviously was. I heard a knock on the door; I quickly wiped the tears off my face, and said, “Come in.”
It was Sam, “hey,” he said. He looked at me confused.
“Yeah?” I asked.
“Have you…been…crying?” he asked concernedly.
“Is there anything you wanted?” I asked him a question instead of answering.
He sighed and then said giving up, “Yeah, just wanted to tell you to get ready for the bon fire, we will be leaving soon.”
“Okay,” I nodded.
“Fine…” he went out closing the door behind.
I decided my outfit first; it was getting pretty cold so I decided to wear a black V-neck sweater, and skinny jeans, and on that flat sandals. I went to the bathroom and washed my face over and over again. The cold water seemed soothing and welcoming, I stripped off my present clothes and applied some lotion on my arms and legs and then put on my selected outfit. For make-up, I applied some eye shadow, liner and some lip gloss. I looked much better; I plaited my hair in a messy way, I was getting bored of the ‘leave it down’ look.
I went out of the room, Sam was waiting on the couch, and he had changed into a plain t-shirt and wore the same jeans.
“Alex left, so it’s just us,” he told me getting up.
“Where’s Emily?” I asked.
“She’s still in the hospital,” he said and we walked out of the door.
We sat in the truck and Sam started driving.
“Er, Adriana, your meeting with others can be a little overwhelming,” he said.
“Yeah?” I asked.
“Yes, they are really excited to see you, so I just thought I would warn you,” he smiled.
“Okay, thanks,” I said. Now I was feeling scared, and nervous.
The rest of the drive Sam asked me about my life in Phoenix, my friends, my likings, I could sense that he wanted to talk about mom but he never did for which I was thankful, I wasn’t ready to go through that…yet.
“We are here,” he announced as he parked his truck around the corner. Next to his truck there were a couple more similar vehicles, I took a deep breathe.
“Don’t worry, it will be fine,” he assured.
“I wasn’t even this nervous to see you,” I joked.
“Come-on,” he chuckled and got out and headed to the back of the truck. There were two huge bags; he picked them each in one hand.
“Need any help with that?” I asked for courtesy.
“That’s funny,” he chuckled.
As we walked I looked around, the place had gotten darker and as we closed to the beach it was lit with a reddish orange light, the sun was setting; it was so beautiful that I just wanted to stand a stare. As we closed I heard laughter and teasing, I walked a little behind Sam, there were two groups, one was of young guys and girls, they weren’t looking at me, but the other group had all elders-both women and men, and now they were all staring at us.
“Hey,” Sam greeted them, but they hardly saw him. Their eyes were on me.
“Oh my god,” “she is like Leah,” “Such a surprise,” all I heard is gasps and this.
I looked at Sam in a helpless way; he smiled and said in a higher voice, “Relax! And please stop staring at her,” he beamed.
Wow…this was just perfect! I thought sarcastically. Sometimes elders can be so childish.
“Hello darling, I m Kim,” a lady who looked like mom came and introduced herself coming up to me. Finally! A rational reaction!
“Hey, I m Adriana,” I smiled at her.
“Wow kid, you could be replica of Leah, a blast of past,” the man who had been holding her said.
“Er-children sometimes do tend to look like their parents,” I joked.
“She’s got humor, will put you in your place Jared,” Kim turned and teased him.
“Hi I m Paul and this is my wife Rachel,” the other man introduced. “Leah ever mentioned me?” he smiled crookedly.
“Umm…no,” I shrugged.
Few snickered at him but he just continued smiling. “Thought I had made a huge impression!” he looked mock-sad.
“Nice meeting you,” I smiled a bit.
“Where are the others?” Sam asked.
“Late like usual,” Jared answered.
“Alex!” Sam called looking at the younger gathering. “For you to hang out with people of your age,” he said looking at me.
“What’s it Dad?” he asked irritated.
“Introduce Adriana to others,” he said.
“Okay,” he nodded and waited for me to join him.
“Go have fun,” Sam smiled at me. I smiled back and walked with Alex.
“You know, all these people you are going to be are wolves and they are with their imprints-I mean girlfriends.” He said in a superior way.
Who did he think he was? And he was acting like I m not supposed to belong here!
“You don’t have a girlfriend, I mean imprint?” I asked instead. He looked at me with a you-do-know-about-wolves look.
“Nope, I m a free man,” he looked away.
“As in you have girlfriends,” I said emphasizing.
“It’s your point of view,” he shrugged and walked faster. So, my half brother was a player, with the most player-like qualities-arrogant, rude, self-centered, showed a lot of attitude, etc.
“Hey, don’t fall for any of my friends,” he stopped and whispered.
“Trust me I don’t have any interest,” I rolled my eyes. If he was like that his friends would obviously be like him.
There were 5 people standing there in all, three guys and two girls, of which the two guys stood holding their girl’s hand. And on of them just stood by him, “hey, we know you from the departmental store! Right Cane?” he seemed like the excited type.
“Yeah, I guess,” Cane answered, he wasn’t really interested, and he seemed really into his girl.
“Hey, I m Derek,” the enthusiastic one held out his hand.
“Hi, I m Adriana,” I shook his hand. These wolves did have high temperatures!
“My half-sister,” Alex announced in a grudging manner.
“Where were you from all these years?” I liked Derek; he was pretty friendly unlike Alex.
“Phoenix,” I smiled.
“Whoa, from Phoenix to La Push, Adriana,” he said in a grand way.
“Alright Derek, let others talk,” Alex sounded bored.
“Hey I m Cane, and this is my girlfriend Robin,” Cane looked like the rest of the guys but Robin was different from the girls here, she had red hair and green eyes, she said hi and smiled at me warmly. I liked her at once.
“And I m Irina,” the other girl said, she had brownish black hair and gray eyes, “I m Mark.” The guy holding her hand said.
“When is Darren arriving?” Alex asked Derek.
“He’ll be here, he works you know,” Derek answered.
“Who’s Darren?” I asked.
“Alex’s bff,” Mark teased him. I giggled. “Shut up Mark,” Alex huffed but he was smiling. His friends weren’t bad, I liked them.
“Oh my God Alex! You didn’t not invite her!” Robin exclaimed. I turned to look who she was looking at.
It was a girl, similar to many in Phoenix; she had strawberry blonde hair and was wearing the shortest skirt ever with a tight top.
“She’s hot,” Derek winked.
“Yeah I know,” Alex high-fived with Derek.
“Alex!” she almost ran towards us and hugged Alex. I started laughing.
“Who is she?” she looked at me with disgust.
“Nobody, come on let’s go,” he slipped his hand through her waist and started walking toward the other end of the beach.
“Ew! Who is she?” I asked.
“That is Terri Longman,” Derek said still looking at her.
“Seriously Derek chill,” Cane hit him on the head.
“Exactly,” Robin agreed with disgust.
We continued with our talk, Cane and Mark were funny, and the more I saw them with Robin and Irina the more they seemed perfect. And Derek was filled with enthusiasm, he joked a lot and mostly we talked about me. To eat we went and joined the elders, the food packets were opened and everyone had either hotdogs or burgers in their hands. I chose and burger and sat down leaning against the rock. Derek sat next to me and started blabbering about school; Sam who was now seated next to Emily gave me a smile when I looked at him. I could see that he was glad that I had gotten along with people here.
“Where is Alex?” Emily asked, clearly she hadn’t seen him darting off with sweet and friendly Terri.
“He’s with his date,” Mark said and all of us started laughing.
“Alex,” Emily sighed. But I could see some emotion in her which I couldn’t point out.
“Hey everyone! Good you’re already eating I m really hungry,” I heard a husky voice; I looked up to see him. He had neck length hair cut in a nice way, a little bit of it fell over his eyes, and I liked it. He was tall and muscular too but something about him made him stand out from that other young wolves.
He didn’t notice me yet, he sat down a little away from me, “that’s Darren,” Derek said. On hearing his name Darren looked toward us, his expression was surprised, I met his eyes, and it felt like everything changed.
Darren’s face lit up and there was a new shine in his eye, and the way he stared was overwhelming. And I didn’t shy away from his stare.
I m already in Love with Darren! <3 <3 <3 Aw..! and yeah, sorry for making you think that Alex imprinted on her! I was just playing around. Forgive me! *angelic smile*
