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 27: Where did you go?
After hearing Sam speak about the man, it took all my strength to not start off right then and there. We needed to plan before. I didn’t understand why it was needed since he was just a human and with the large number of us, it would be a piece of cake.
Seth joined us within minutes, he told us that Leah, his daughter had a bad case of cold and he had to be with her. And if it hadn’t been something as serious as Adriana being kidnapped, we knew he wouldn’t have left his daughter’s side at all. Not every father was like Sam…
When Seth was filled in with everything, he was beyond furious and from the looks of it, he blamed Sam. He had a brief conference with Jacob in his wolf form, and for the time being was able to shift himself to Sam’s pack. It was very necessary to have all the co-ordination we could get.
All of us were in the wolf form now racing in the woods to the motel. I still remembered the scent that had been with Adriana’s and passed it to others. There was nothing but determination to get my imprint.
I couldn’t help but picture cruel messed up things which might have happened to her.
Darren! Calm down! Sam ordered.
I-I cant…I told him; as much as I wanted her to be fine, I couldn’t just couldn’t stop the vile thoughts in my head.
I know it’s hard, but please try. He simply said. He was best at covering his emotions; all that was running through his mind was finding Ade…that’s it! But I knew better, he was as scared as me.
The pack moved in swift motion ignoring my thoughts or rather giving me privacy. We reached the motel soon, it would obviously look threatening if the whole pack went and questioned about him so Sam, Seth and me decided to go. We shifted into humans and walked through the door.
I had never been in this place before but it just disgusted me! All I could see were drunk and men and women up to no good. I couldn’t believe Adriana had chosen to live here but I guess she didn’t have any choice as she didn’t know anything about this town.
“Excuse me, we are here to meet a man named Ross, he stays here” Sam spoke to the woman who looked in charge.
“And you are?” she asked raising her eye brow.
“Old acquaintances,” he shrugged. I cringed at the thought of meeting associated with the man who might have abducted my imprint.
“I’m sorry, I wish I could help you but-” she started.
“Look please…we have to know!” I said desperately.
“Oh…” the woman looked astonished at my tone. “Let me check,” She started going through her register. “Ross Garcia, he checked out this morning.”
“Do you have any idea where?” Dad asked.
“No, he just told me that the job he had come here for was over and he wouldn’t have to stay here anymore,” she told us.
“Okay, how did he travel?” Sam asked.
“He had a rented truck…he had been staying here since a long time, a mysterious customer,” she sighed but didn’t look suspicious. Guess that’s how everyone here was.
“Thanks…” Sam nodded and we left her looking confused.
“You think he’s taken her?” I asked.
“Yes, I m sure,” Sam agreed.
We shifted into wolves and told others about whatever we had learnt.
Where do we look for her? I asked feeling completely lost.
You have to tell us. Sam replied calmly.
What?! I don’t know! I groaned.
Darren…you are new at this, but she is your imprint and you will be able to connect with her…just think about her…reach out to here…Sam explained.
The other older wolves agreed with Sam, as they had more experience in this I agreed with them.
Aren’t my thoughts a little crowed? I asked. I wouldn’t be able to concentrate.
You will Darren…just trust yourself, finding Adriana is the only thing that matters. Dad comforted me.
Right…just tone down your thoughts. I told others and closed my eyes and started thing of Adriana
Her thoughts just filled my mind…I remembered the first time I had seen her, our eyes had met and that was one of the best feelings ever. Everything had snapped and had connected to her, she held me. At that moment I had promised myself that I would do anything for her…be anyone she wants…love her selflessly. And after that I had to go through rejection from her, but I had promised to keep her happy anyway so I didn’t complain. We spent time together and I liked her even more…I was truly falling deeper in love. I thought about the time I found her on the beach crying, I had held her took her home and cared for her. And that was the same night when she accepted her love for me…I had held her, comforted her the whole time she had cried, she trusted me. Kissing her for the first time had driven me crazy…I had wanted more of her; she was so shy and looked so beautiful when she blushed!
I was deep in my thoughts and lived every motion again, it was then I noticed something that had never happened. The emotion that I was feeling now didn’t belong to me, my mind wanted to reject it but a sharp order in the background made me stay calm. Soon I lost myself… All I felt was numbness; I wanted to cry out in pain and hoped that someone would help me. I was scared…scared to death.
“Just a little more honey…you will be out of here soon.” He smiled wickedly. I closed my eyes and the last thing I registered was a sign board-Hoquiam 50 miles.
I was speechless…frozen. What happened? I asked shocked at this experience.
This has never happened before…ever. Sam said in a hard voice.
But an imprint has never been in danger before…Embry thought.
We have to go now! Save her! I ran. And everyone else followed.
The whole time I was scared that we would loose her, but others kept these pessimistic thoughts away from me and we focussed on finding her. It didn’t take us much time to reach the outskirts of Hoquiam. The night was dark enough to hide us from being seen by humans as we peered through the woods. There wasn’t any moment of vehicles. Almost 25 miles had passed when we heard cranking of metal. My heart beat sped and I knew that I had found her. Sam gave us orders, only few of us were shifting into human. Me, Sam, Seth, Dad and Alex.
“Need any help with that?” Sam asked. We saw a tall less built man standing before the bonnet. His eyes widened as he took in our presence.
“Is it him?” I whispered.
“It’s him alright,” Sam replied.
“No, I m almost done, I m leaving now,” he closed the bonnet. I growled! The windows were rolled up and I couldn’t see through the dark tint.
“Oh, not so soon,” Sam walked toward him and held his collar.
As the others took care of him I opened the passenger door, my heart froze. Adriana lay on the seat; she looked so feeble and helpless.
“Adriana? Honey?” I choked.
She opened her eyes slowly and her eyes widened just a little as she realised it was me. She didn’t say anything…just blinked. I felt fury rise in me…he had hurt her so bad! I would kill him!
Growling I reached where Sam and others were punishing him. I was trembling beyond control but I didn’t shift into wolf. Without much thought I started attacking him. Punching him, kicking him, breaking every part of him body as he cried in pain. We had pulled him toward the woods were the other wolfs waited.
I felt a hand on my shoulder, pulling me back!
“I’m going to kill him!” I shouted, trembling beyond anything. I was just about to transform.
“Don’t!” Sam ordered.
“What?!” I looked at him incredulously.
“We’ll take care of him…go to Adriana, she needs you,” he said in a calm voice.
Realising the truth in his words I moved back, kicking him one last time. His whole body was covered in blood and he whimpered. But I didn’t feel even a little pang of regret at what I had done. He had tried to hurt my imprint and I had just taken care of him.
Taking deep breaths and trying to ignore my instincts to go back and kill him; I jogged back to the main road. Someone stood there…Alex. Adriana was no more in the car; she was sitting on the ground. She was trembling and tears rolled down her eyes.
Glaring at Alex I knelt down to her level and hugged her.
“Dad just asked me to see that she was fine, as far as I am concerned-she is,” he answered my gaze and walked off into the woods.
For a moment I was shocked, but as Adriana’s sobs I turned my attention to her. Kneeling down, I pulled her in my arms and rocked her body.
I held her closer, and comforted her and prayed that it was enough.
I couldn’t move much, just look around but my arms and legs didn’t have any strength. With each passing second I knew that the drug that Ross had injected in my body was leaving me…it was painful almost and unbearable. I wanted to shake free, stretch my muscles and feel myself again. But I couldn’t.
I knew I was safe…but I was very scared. I had seen Darren, he had seen me but I didn’t know what he had found in my fear filled eyes that he had growled. And then he was gone…without a word!
He probably didn’t want me now…
My train of thought was broken when warm hands picked me up from the seat, I turned with all the strength I had to look at the person hoping it was Darren, but the expression and the face wasn’t as warm as the hands.
I stared at him surprised, he stared at me too his expression changed for a moment but it was back again…back to the hate. He bent and dropped me on the ground, I cringed. The cold concrete road wasn’t very welcoming. I just sat the way I had been placed not bothering to look up and wasting my energy. I knew Alex was towering over me…I could feel his hate-filled vibes.
I started shaking…emotion and feel was returning to me completely. It was cold…very cold, and then the pain flooded through me and hot tears fell down my cheeks. I felt so alone…so alone. I needed Darren, but he wasn’t around. And Alex presence actually made me feel more alone.
Once again warm hands wrapped around me, but I didn’t have to look up to know who it was…my fears were a waste. Darren hadn’t quit on me, as I thought that I felt a whole lot better. I wrapped my arms around his neck feebly as he picked me up and enveloped myself in his scent, his touch, his love, his comfort, his protection…I felt complete.
“Are you okay?” he whispered in my ear while rubbing my back.
“Y-yes,” I managed to say…my voice was hoarse but I could speak! My voice had been restrained along with my other actions but now I just wanted to rest. I was too tired to talk.
“Darren?” I muttered sleepily.
“Yes love,” he replied.
“Thank you,” my effort was tiring me. I was feeling extremely sleepy.
“You don’t have to say that,” he whispered.
“I love you,” I told him.
“I love you too, sleep now, you’re tired,” he smiled.
“Hmm…” I closed my eyes, and the last thing that my mind registered was Darren’s face, it hadn’t been quite clear as it was pretty dark and my eyes were heavy with sleep. But yeah…I saw him.
I felt scared no more…all my fears had been driven away from the guy who had saved me, I didn’t know I had found me but I knew somehow he had found a way.
A/N: Okay? Everybody happy? I wanted Darren to kill Ross, but thought that he should be with Ade at the moment. She needed him more. And also, I would like to tell you guys that three-fourth of the story is done. Another few chapters (5-6) it’s going to end.
I know this is a short chapter, but hopefully, I will be updating this weekend.
I hope it was up to your expectations and you liked it.
Please do review!
Yay! They found her! I love the way he connected with her to find her! Just a pity Alex still seems to hate her.
