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?

8. Chapter 8

I heard Aunt Terri yell good bye from the bottom of the stairs, I didn't answer back maybe she thought I was sleeping. I really should get out of bed, a rumbling sound came from my stomach I guess I should get something to eat. I really have to start eating better it's been really easy to forget to eat these days. I hope that she's really gone I don't feel like any company so I'm not going to call Louis or Amanda. 

I walked into the kitchen I placed the letter on the counter and  opened the fridge there was still food that the neighbors brought that way we didn't have to cook. Nothing looked good so I just grabbed an apple and went out to the patio the sun was starting to go down, the pier looked amazing tonight maybe I'll walk over there and just walk around. Hmm maybe, maybe not. 

"What am I going to do? Do I even want to find him, I don't know?" I said out loud I must sound like a crazy person to my neighbors. I don't know what to do about this it just makes so mad at both of them him for not being around, her for not telling me sooner how fair is this. It's not, not one bit. Jeremy Davis he was the one that was around till I was two years old. It always made me fell like I wasn't good enough for him to stay, mom said they wouldn't stop fighting and that he just left in the middle of the night. This man named Mark Kindle I never heard of I'll ask Aunt Terri about him later maybe he never know she was pregnant I felt kindness towards him probably because I have no history with him.

I think I'll go for that walk…it was cool tonight so I grabbed a  hoodie and pulled it over my pink tank top, should I change into jeans...um no shorts are fine I said answering myself. I folded the letter and shoved it in my back pocket I saw my phone on the couch think I'll leave it here I really don't feel like being reached right now. I grabbed my keys and locked the door I took the stairs this time, why do stairways always look so scary I always think someone is going to run in and start chasing me. I guess I watch to much suspense movies…thanks Louis...ha ha. Well I  made it all the way down without being chased, I'm such a dork. I'm so glad that I don't live that far from the pier I was just reaching the parking lot. There were so many people here.

"Hey baby, what you doing here all by yourself, you want some company tonight?" A guy yelled from a group of guys near the entrance.

"No thanks big boy, I'm good." I said looking his way with a smile.

"I bet you are baby, maybe next time." He said back with a wink.

I just kept walking, it was nice seeing families together mom's and dad's with their kids playing games and going on rides. My mom was great at making my childhood happy and normal.

"Hey Laurel!" Said a voice from behind me, I hope it's not Louis when I turned around I was so happy to see Charlie. 

"Hi Charlie, wait aren't suppose to be manning the Ferris Wheel?" I asked with a smile, he looked so cute tonight.

"I'm on break, wait what are you doing here alone?" He said looking confused.

"What I can't be here alone?" I asked 

"We'll everytime I see you your with Louis and Amanda that's all I mean."

"Your right, I just needed some space from them."

"Do you want me to leave?" He asked,

"Actually no I don't, How long do you have on your break?" I asked.

"45 minuets!" He smiled.

"Okay, lets go on a ride."

"How bout your favorite one?"

"Sounds good to me." I said as I place my arm into his. He smiled down to me and we walked over to the ferris wheel. He nodded at the guy who was running the ride and he let us jump ahead everyone. The people in line rolled their eyes and started to protest. 

"Don't worry about them." He said as he opened the door for me.

I've never hung out with Charlie without Louis around I like him when he's not acting all macho. "Thanks Charlie, it's been so hard lately and everyone looks at me like I'm going to shatter into a million pieces." I said looking over the edge of the bucket as it lifted up into sky.

"No problem, I know it's hard and I know how it feels, I lose my mom when I was 10 it was a car accident too, dad moved us here soon after he couldn't take living in our house anymore." His head was down, I started to tear up he looked at me putting his hands on my face cradling it and wiping my tears away. He had tears too I smiled at him and wiped them away I wrapped my arms around his body laying my head on chest I could hear his heart, and I felt his lips on my head. It felt so nice just sitting holding each other I looked up him and I felt his lips on mine I didn't protest it felt good kissing him. Then his tongue pressed against my bottom lip asking for entrance and I accepted. He's an amazing kisser and he smelled so good. We made out for I don't know how long we stopped after we heard the guy manning the ride yell that his break was over. 

"CRAP I HAVE TO GO!" He yelled "I don't want to." He added.

"It's okay, I better be heading back, Charlie?"

"What is it?" he said kissing my forehead.

"Thanks for tonight and for telling me about your mom." I said as I held his hand.

"Hey anytime you need to talk you know where to find me." He smiled 

"Oh and about the…" I started to say.

"Hey don't worry, emotions can be crazy but I did enjoy it. Laurel your amazing." He said the ride slowed it was time for us to get out. He stood up holding the door open for me and held my hand as I stepped out.

I turned to him. "Charlie your pretty amazing too…Thanks!" I kissed him on the cheek and walked off the platform. I heard cheering from the crowd waiting to go on the ride, I looked back and noticed Charlie's face turn red god he's cute. I felt my own face turn red then, did I really just make out with Charlie wow I never thought would happen. The group of guys were all gone now when I went past the entrance. I love Santa Monica it's so beautiful the sound of the waves are amazing. It was a nice walk back home, I thought about the letter I pulled it out and stared at it, that's when I decided on what I was going to do. I didn't want to go straight to the apartment so I went up to the pool and sat down in a lounge chair staring at the stars above a smile grew on my face when I thought of Charlie, soon enough I was out.
