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 13: Shattered.
What did he just say?
“I m sorry what?” staring in his eyes with desperateness.
“I-I imprinted on you,” he repeated.
“No,” I whispered and moved back, away from him. I thought he liked me, the real me…and it was all because he imprinted on me! He likes me only because of some stupid ritual kind of thing.
“What do you mean?” he asked confused.
“You don’t like me,” I stated shaking my head.
“I do…more than you know!” he exclaimed.
“No, you don’t,” I felt exasperated.
“But I imprinted on you,” he whispered.
“That’s the thing! You imprinted, how you can just fall in love in a crazy way without knowing me at all?!” I knew my words hurt him but I was trying to explain to him.
“It’s the way we come to know about our other half,” he explained in despair.
“I don’t believe it’s true,” I said sternly and hugged myself.
“Look, the first time I saw you, I looked in your eyes, and I knew you are the one-” he started.
“No, I hate this imprint stuff! I cannot bear it!” my eyes were glistening with tears.
“But Adr-” I cut him short.
“I don’t want you to fall in love with me because of this! It’s stupid,” I choked.
“I love you,” he whispered.
“No, you think you do, but you don’t and you’re not,” I said bitterly.
“Why?” he asked, his voice shook with emotion.
“Because of what happened to my mom, Leah…” I swallowed.
“I don’t understand…” he muttered.
“My father, he left my mum, because he imprinted on Emily! They were together for so long, but he just broke everything with just one look at Emily…” I explained…my voice trembled. It looked like he wanted to reach out to me but he didn’t…and I was glad he didn’t.
“And I hate it…I hate that he left her, I hate it because I couldn’t live my life with a complete family! And I hate it that he lived happily with her! And if this hadn’t had happened today Mom would have been a-” I stopped at the right time shocked at my burst out. I was shocked because I had almost told that Mom was dead…a cold shiver passed down my spine.
I looked at Darren, I felt sad; he was staring at me with the most hurt expression that shattered my heart to pieces…but I had to do this. I didn’t believe in this type of love. To me, imprinting meant nothing but forceful love.
“I m sorry I took this out on you,” I whispered afraid of what would come next. My anger and pain was at and because of my father…not Darren. I liked Darren…a lot, but I was not going to accept the love that broke my mom’s world.
“Darren, please I m sorry,” I moved a little closer and held his hand. He shivered at my touch.
“I m sorry,” I repeated in a whisper.
“I-I m too,” he whispered.
“Please understand…I really like you but I think your liking towards me is forced,” he flinched at my last word and his faced twisted in pain.
He was silent, and I was silent. I didn’t have any words to comfort him. Any word that left my mouth now would just break him more.
“I m sorry that you’re under that impression,” he finally said.
I looked at him surprised. He really believed that he loved me…I realised. But Imprinting was just plain stupid!
“I just want to be friends,” I forced these words out.
“As you wish…but just so that you know, my love for you is real, you’re my soul-mate, and I will wait for you forever…I will always be there for you, even if its just friendship that you want, you will be the most important person to me, I will be your friend,” he said huskily. At his words I wanted to hug and kiss him but my love for my dead mother was more…I couldn’t betray her.
“Thanks,” I found myself saying.
His eyes burned with intensity…I looked away. “Take me back please,” I requested. He gathered up the stuff, I wanted to help but he said he would manage it himself. I stood at the side watching him. I had just spoilt the date…ruined it. A part of me was obvious to the pain…but there was also a part which told me I had done that right thing.
We drove in silence, seconds stretched into minutes and minutes felt like hours. Finally we reached Sam’s place.
“Adriana?” he called as I turned to get out of the car.
“Yes,” I looked at him.
“You don’t need to feel bad about this, I understand what you’re feeling now…I promise, I won’t let this be awkward for you,” he said with a small smile.
“Thank you,” I whispered feeling even more horrible.
I got down from the car, he got down and followed me, I reached the door, Sam opened it at once, and I wished he hadn’t come just then.
“Bye Darren,” I said in a dead voice and kissed him on the cheek, he deserved that and I wanted to.
“Bye,” he whispered with the same smile, but before I turned I caught the expression on his face fall. I looked at Sam once; he looked confused probably by the surprised situation…what did he think we did be doing? Making out? Yeah, maybe he did.
“Adriana?” he called as I walked away. “I want to be alone,” I mumbled as I walked off.
Thankfully he didn’t follow me. And I walked to my room feeling broken…my heart ached…the pain of loosing mom was back. I locked the door and lay on the bed and finally let the tears fall…again.
I watched her walk away…with her every step away from me my heart broke. When she kissed me on my cheek, I never wanted to let go of her. I stared at her for a while and then started walking away. She was my imprint, and I truly did love her, she was obviously under a wrong impression but what she had been through and what she knew I couldn’t blame her. She had watched her mother hurt over for years and I couldn’t just expect her to throw away everything and come to me. But still…a small part of me hoped.
I had never expected that my first date with my imprint would end this way, I loved her! I needed her…but she didn’t believe any of this.
“Hey Darren!” Sam jogged up to join me.
I just stared at him blankly.
“What happened?” he asked. What should I say? That my imprint just rejected my love? It was true but.
“Did you hurt her?” he asked hesitantly.
“You think I would?!” I almost shouted.
“No, of course not; both of you seem so off, I want to know what happened,” he said kindly.
“I told her that I imprinted on her,” I whispered and held the car door for support.
“What-what did she say?” he asked, but I knew that he had guessed what had happened.
“She said she didn’t think I was really in love with her,” It was hard explaining this to him.
“What?” now he was confused.
“She thought I loved her not because I really do, she wants to stay just friends,” I was explaining badly.
“I didn’t get you…” he muttered.
“She doesn’t want to accept what ruined her mother’s life!” I was on the verge of crying.
“Oh,” he ran his hand through his hair.
“Yeah, I will leave,” I said and turned.
“Darren, I m sorry that this happened to you, I really I m. It will work out, don’t worry,” he put his hand on my shoulder.
“Wouldn’t you have?” I just shrugged and sat in the car and drove away with a slight nod in Sam’s way.
I knew I would be broken, hurt and I would probably stay this way until Adriana accepted me…only if she will I would be okay…I knew it. But on the positive side, she wanted to stay friends at least. This will bring me some happiness or it will be the hardest thing I ever did. I didn’t know what it would be.
After going home I looked around the house again…this had been the Clearwaters’ place, Seth had allowed me to stay here…I just walked up to the room I didn’t use much, it was Leah Clearwater’s room, I went in without bothering to switch on the lights. I could see quite well of course…I was a wolf after all, there was the wooden bed, and a wardrobe and few other things, but the room looked empty. I sat down on the floor leaning against the bed…and I couldn’t help but breaking down…I had never cried like this.
An imprint’s rejection was the hardest thing ever…I wanted her…no, I needed her...but things weren’t going to go my way.
Even in my despair, I felt strangely calm. It felt like a déjà vu. But nothing like this happened to me before…but I cried. A vague thought passed my mind. Years ago, Leah Clearwater must have been the one crying. And I knew how she had felt. It hurt. A lot.
Things are hard…will remain hard…you just have to get used to them. Sometimes when you see your loved one go through a huge amount of pain…you tend to hate that thing even though you don’t want to…and the past becomes pain in present…
Aw…!! I feel so terrible…sigh! Poor Darren!
PS: Sorry for the long wait…I have been very busy with studies.
Aw...I feel so bad for Darren...and Adriana! Post more soon!

Does she not realize that she is doing the same thing to Darren that Sam did to her mom?
Yeah, she is sad and of course she likes him. But Sam left Leah for Emily and that's because imprinting and she thinks imprinting deprives a wolf of his mind and forces him...!
