Out To Find The Truth

Laurel is a happy, down to earth, beautiful, 16 year old girl but all that is about to change her, now that her mother has died, and she's on the search to find her father. The only clue she has is the two names her mother put in a letter written to her before her death. Is it the man the raised her until she was two years old who is the father of a major musical artist or a man that she knows nothing about?


11. Chapter 11

  I ran upstairs when I heard my phone I was so nervous and excited I hope it's Mr. Ferrel. Oh My God where is it, I destroyed my room but then I noticed that the ringing was coming from outside. "There you are!" I said picking it up from the sofa I ran my finger across the screen to talk.

"Hello?" I said as I was trying to catch be breath.

"Hello is this Miss Bates?" Said the voice on the other line.

"Yes it is and you are?" I asked fingering a stray thread on the cushion.

"Oh sorry I'm Mr. Tyler Ferrel I got your message and I do have some information for you." He announced. I was surprised how could he already have something I didn't even give him the names yet. 

"Wait you already have information but how?" I asked I was so confused. 

"I think it would be better if you meet me, that way I can explain everything to you in person."

"Ok, that's fine where do you want to meet?" I questioned immediately. 

"How bout the cafe on the corner of Main St. and Hollister Ave. do you know the place?" He asked.

"Yes I do very well, when would you like to meet?" 

"How about at 2:30 is that ok for you?"

"Yes it's perfect I can't wait see you then."

"Good-bye Miss Bates." 

"Good-bye." I said before I hung up. I'm still not sure how he already has information I walked through my room heading to the stairs. I could hear Aunt Terri talking downstairs "I hope it's Mr. Ferrel she called him this morning."

"It was him." I pronounce as I walked down the stairs. They all turned to look at me. "I'm going to meet him at a coffee shop at 2:30." 

"Your not going alone, I'll go with you?" Aunt Terri said as she  stood from the couch. 

"Thank you but I think I should do this alone actually I want to." I told them Aunt Terri looked hurt, I didn't want to hurt her I really didn't, I walked over to her and gave her a hug.

"Why do you have to be so independent?" She whined.

I just laughed. "I learned from the best."

"Ugh you are your mothers daughter and I love it." She said as she kissed me on the forehead.

"There is one thing that's bugging me though, he told me that he already has information but I didn't tell him any names beside my own." Aunt Terri just giggled I just stared at her.

"I'm sorry darling but don't you get it, it's your mom she probably had him look into it right away. That way when you asked you didn't have to wait long." She explained.

"Your right, she planned everything." I Said.

"Your mom really was amazing wasn't she?" Andy asked.

"She was the best mom in the world I miss her so much." I looked over at Aunt Terri she was staring at me with a weird look on her face. "What is it?" 

"Your just like her." She said as she smiled.

"Well we better get ready for our day out." Luke said as he stood up.

"Ok let me go get my things, I'll be right back." She sang as she ran to my room. She kept all of her things in there but I really do think it's about time she starts staying in moms room I'm ready. She's been so great about it not asking or rushing me, I'm sure she would love to sleep in a real bed not a pull out. 

"I'll be right back guys." I said running as I followed her up the stairs.

Luke's POV

"Andy!" I said but he sure wasn't paying attention, my gaze followed his it ended with Laurel running to the stairs. Does he like her, oh no he does as I think of it hardly takes his eyes off of her I get it she's great but she's 16. That is not ok, I have to stop this I have to talk to him.

"Andy! ANDY!" I said louder.

"Huh, what is it man?" He said finally turning around to face me.

"What are you thinking, she's way to young to even consider it."

"I know man but she's so amazing."

"There's no but's about it she's only 16."

"Okay…Okay I know, I'll stay away from her. Well I better get going before she comes back down. See you later." He said as he stood up and walked to the door.

"Okay I'll see you later." I said as I walked to the kitchen to get a drink of water. I heard them chatting upstairs this might take awhile I'll go wait on the patio it's so nice out today.

Laurel's POV

  When I walked into my room she was running around like a crazy person I helped her look for her sunglasses and sunblock. 

"Can I talk to you real quick?" I said as I handed her the sunglasses.

"Yes of course, what is it?" We walked out to the patio and sat down. "Are you ok, do you want me to go with you?"

"No No It's nothing like that I'm fine, I was thinking since you are staying here for good I think it's time you move into mom's room. That way you can have your own space, I love you so much and I want you to feel at home." I started to tear up and so did she.

"Are you sure Laurel?"

"Yes I am, I'm very sure. We can paint, get new furniture what ever you want. Mom wouldn't want you to live on the pull out." I laughed. 

"Okay we can go in there whenever you want. Oh I better get going Luke might leave without me. I love you darling." She said standing up to hug me.

"I love you too, you two have fun." We both walked into my room I stayed so I can get ready. "Good-bye" I yelled behind her.

"Luke I'm ready, Good-bye Laurel!"

"Good-bye!" I heard Luke yell up the stairs.

"Bye have fun!" I yelled down to them, I then heard the front door shut.

  I better start getting ready it's already 1:15. So I did my usual routine took a shower, did my hair, I picked out a cute burgundy dress, I put on a little make-up and grabbed a pair of heels. I better make sure I lock up the patio doors and just in case I'll leave a note.

Hey I went to meet Mr.Ferrel if you need me just give me a call. Love laurel :)

  I set it down on the counter by the home phone. I grabbed my keys and purse oh yeah my phone too. I am so nervous what is he going to tell me. Does he know who they are has he talked to them. I took the stairs it was faster and since they creep me out I was faster. I ran out of the door and unlocked my car with the opener I got in and started it up. I could of walked but I wanted to get there a little early. It was only a few blocks away I was lucky I found a spot right across the street that never happens. I walked up to the counter and ordered a moroccan mint tea like I aways did when I can with mom. I went to find a table outside on the patio after I got my tea. I still had 15 minutes till 2:30, after every minute I grew more nervous. I don't even know whats he looks like I started looking around then my eyes met with a man in his late 30's.
