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?


19. Chapter 19

We ran to where they were as fast as we could pushing our way through the crowd I grabbed quickly Amanda and Louis by the hand.

"Dad I'm sorry I ruined the..."

"Justin don't worry we gotta get out of here, I'm sorry Laurel but we should go I don't want to but you shouldn't have to go through this." He yelled over all of the screaming.

"You can't go yet! Hey everyone follow me!" I yelled. We ran as fast as we could our group was behind me but so were the girls.

"What about the cars, we can't leave them here?" The lady yelled. 

"We walked, but my place is just down the street." I said.

"Justin take Margo, I'll take Laurel you guys follow us." Jeremy said as he unlocked his car, Justin shook his head as he and the lady he called Margo got into his.

"Wait my friends Louis, Amanda get in." I yelled.

"Oh sorry I thought you were fans, come on let's get out of here." Jeremy said. 

"I'll tell you where to go." I said. We had some people follow us but Jeremy lost them, Justin was still behind us. When we got to my place I opened the gate and we got to my parking garage Justin parked right next to us. We all stepped out of the car and took a deep breath. Then Amanda, louis and I looked at each other and started laughing.

"What is wrong with you guys?" Justin yelled.

"Ha ha sorry but that was crazy, is it always like that." I laughed.

"Ha ha yeah just about, welcome to my life." He laughed back. 

Jeremy looked annoyed towards us then to just Justin and the lady oh yeah he said Margo was her name. "Dad I'm so sorry, I didn't mean to cause all this we just wanted to look out for you." Justin pleaded. 

"Please don't be mad at him, if I didn't pull off the bread no one would of known. I'm sorry!" Amanda said as she moved in Justin's way. Justin looked up at her and smiled then looked at his dad. 

"I know you didn't mean any of this to happen Justin. Wait what bread?" everyone started to laugh but but and Jeremy were in the dark on this one. He walked over to Justin and pulled him into a hug. All I could think about was the I want that, I miss my moms hugs. 

"L maybe we should go upstairs." Louis whispered to me. 

"Oh yeah, Um why don't we get up to my place just in case some of my neighbors are crazy fans." I said looking at everyone.

"Great idea Laurel. Oh sorry I'm Margo by the way Jeremy's Fiance." 

"It's nice to meet you Margo. So is everyone ready?" I asked. Margo placed her arm in Jeremy's and around Justin's shoulder and we followed Louis to the elevator. She was so beautiful her hair, her clothes, her make-up even after all the running. We were standing in the elevator now it was kinda awkward you know me with my friends, the guy that might be my dad his soon to be with and his pop star son thank goodness Amanda wasn't drooling or giving him a stalker stare.

"So you brought your friends?" Looking up at Louis and Amanda. Jeremy said breaking the silence.

"Yeah she did we didn't know anything about you and plus she's a girl meeting a strange guy on a pier hello Lifetime Movie in the making." Amanda said in a serious tone looking at everyone. 

"Ha ha Amanda calm down, I'm sorry they're very protective." I shot her a stern look and then soften my face into a smile when I looked back at Jeremy. 

"You have really good friends." He said as he looked at both of them. 

"I do, the best!" I said. We got off of the elevator and saw Mrs. Scott walking to my door till she saw me.

"Oh my darling thank heavens your home I locked myself out again can you help me?" Said Mrs. Scott poor thing she looked so tired. 

"Oh Mrs. Scott how long have you been out here?" I said as I started to walk faster towards her.

"About 30 minutes, I thought Terri was home but just napping so I knocked every so often." Louis grabbed her hand and let her lean on him. "I'm sorry you have company, Hello Louis baby! Hi Amanda darling and hello to you three sorry I haven't met you."

"Oh these are some new friends, this is Jeremy he was friend of moms, his son Justin and Margo his fiance."

"Oh dear were you and Anna close? Are poor Laurel has been through so much the whole building loves her she like a daughter to us all just like her mama." She said as she pulled me into a hug I felt my face turn red. 

"Yes we were close but it was a long time ago, Laurel does seem like a great girl." He said as he looked at me with a smile on his face. 

"Um thanks Mrs. Scott I'll go get your key. You all please come in and make yourself at home I'll be right back." I said as I grabbed he key from the key bowl by the door. 

"Okay!" Jeremy said.

"Is there anything else you need help with?" I asked. 

"Why yes dear I have a few things in the car still could you please grabbed them?" She asked.

"Okay not a problem, I be back in a bit." I said looking back at the group of people in the living room. 

"Do you want me to help?" Louis yelled.

"No I'm fine I got it, Thanks Lou!" I said as I shut the door behind me. 

Jeremy's POV

"Jeremy I am really sorry!" Margo said as she grabbed my hand.

"Honey it's fine I'm not upset anymore." I reassured her I walked up to a wall of photo's. "She really looks like Anna doesn't she?" I mumbled.

"Yeah they looked like twins and acted the same. We all miss her she was like a mom to Louis and I." Said Amanda she was getting tears in her eyes. I saw a box of tissues on the coffee table I walked over to grab one for her.

"Thank you." She cried.

"How long have you all been friends?"

"Since pre-school, heres a picture of all of us on the first day we meet, Anna took the picture." Louis came to her side and pulled her into a hug. They seemed like great kids I'm glad Anna and Laurel had great people around them. 

"Are you ok?" He asked looking her in the eye she nodded her head yes, he then kissed her on the forehead. "Would you guys like anything to drink?" Louis asked with his arm around her. 

"Um some water please." Margo said.

"Yeah I'll take some too." I said.

"Justin how about you, you thirsty?" Amanda asked. The question surprised him pulling him out of his head. 

"Oh, um no thank you." He answered. This is so much for him.

"Justin can I talk you?" I asked.


"You can talk on the balcony if you want to be alone." Amanda said pointing to the direction of the double glass doors. Louis gave me a glass of water before I went out.

"Thank you Louis." He nodded his head and walked to the couch to hand Margo hers. I placed my arm around Justin's shoulder and walked out on the balcony. 

"Wow this is amazing!" Justin said looking out to the ocean and the pier.

"Wow is right, what a view." I said I turned to look at Justin a smile was on his face.

"Dad do you think she's yours?" He asked looking out at the water. 

I don't know, a big part of me wants her to be. Anna broke my heart when she told me that I might not be her dad. When I first saw her today all the love I had for them shot back I missed them. I don't know if I am or not but either way I want to stay in her life. Would you be ok with that?

"I don't know dad, well at least not yet this is just so strange." He said.

"I understand, What do you think of her so far, she's okay right?" I asked as I looked out at the water it was so blue it shimmered when the sun hit it. 

"Yeah she seems great, really nice too and pretty." He said.

"Laurel is back, sorry I didn't mean to bother you." Margo said from behind us, she walked out when she noticed the view. "Wow it's beautiful!" her eye grew so wide.

"Yeah it is, this is why mom said yes to apartment so she..."

"So she could watch the storms!" I finished her sentence. "Sorry I didn't mean to cut you off" She was motionless by the door staring at me they all were.

"Yeah your right." She stopped at the railing next to Justin. "Sorry it took so long Mrs. Scott loves to talk." She smiled.

"It's okay." I said. "Why don't we go inside and talk you can ask me anything." I told her.

"Okay same here!" She said leading the way. When we got inside Amanda and Louis were talking in the kitchen as Louis made a sandwich.

"Your still hungry I just saw you with a bowl of cereal?" She laughed.

"I'm a growing boy, and plus I need food before I go to work." He said taking a huge bite out of the sandwich. "Hey do you want us to come back tonight to sleep over?" He asked. I know my mouth dropped, he sleeps over with her.

"Honey!" Margo nudged me as she whispered.

"Um, if you guys want I talked to Aunt Terri a little bit ago she isn't coming home tonight, so it'll just be me. We can watch a movie, go swimming and order pizza." She said. I can feel my fatherly instinct kick in but I kept quiet it wasn't my place but having a boy stay the night and no adult. 

"Louis we gotta get going and I need to stop at my place for more clothes. Amanda said as she took a bite out of her apple and walking up to Laurel hugging and kissing her good-bye. Then Louis came up and put his arm around her waist and kissed her on the forehead."

"I'll see you later, okay if you need anything just give the store a call we'll be back around 12:30. We'll grab the pizza from Johnny's." He said letting her go and heading for the door.

"GOOD-BYE everyone it was nice meeting you!" They both yelled as they walked out.

"So he stay's the night?" Justin took the words right out of my mouth. 

"Uh…Yeah he has since we were really little, mom never minded it and plus if he couldn't then neither could Amanda." She said smiling. 

"What do you mean." I asked confused. "She's a girl?" I added.

"Because she's gay and it wouldn't be fair if it was because a fear of sex, so mom sat us down and told us that it would be okay as long we always respect each other." She explained.

"Oh so their not dating then?" Justin asked.

"Ha ha them no!"

"Are you dating him?" said Justin.

"No we're not, we're all just friends?" She said.
