3. Mistaken, Chapter Three

A while later I went back to the orphanage. I changhed and watched random TV shows for a while.

Finally I decided to go to sleep.

In the morning when I woe up I put my robe on and walked into the dining hall for breakfast. Stlla pulled me out and led me to the staff room. "Sit." She ordered. I sat in the losest chair and looked at Stella and Hayley. "Read this." Hayley said, handing me another peice of paper in my file. I read:

'To Justine. You have no idea how fake your life was. I have adjusted important details as I do not want to be found. But I think it is time you uncover the truth,peice by peice. Yesterday I told you tht you were 19, and know you are 20, as it is your birthday.
     You do not know your name. You know none of it. Thought you knew your first name? Wrong. Your first name is not Justine, but it is Daphnie. Your middle name is Bridgit. I will not tell you your last name, because myou will discover me. But I will place a fake last name on you. How about, mybe, Ross. Ya, Ross. Daphnie Bridgit Ross. Your almost-real name.
     Your life will change bit by bit as you uncover the truth.'

"Wow. I can't believe I never knew my name until I was 20. And he won't even tell me my real surname!" I screeched.

I ran back to my room and ripped a peice of paper out of my diary. I giant letters I wrote: 'WAIT-STOP AND READ THIS BEFORE YOU LEAVE.'

Then in smaller letters I wrote:

'Hi. This is Daphnie. I found and read your notes, but I want to leave you one of my own.
     How could you be so horrible and lie about me? I want to know my real name. I want to know everything about me, and I want to know why you decided to abandon me. I understand you couldn't take me to Mexico, but why not drop me at the orphanage and take me back again when you arrived home? Then I would have know the truth, and I would know my own family.
     And why is it so crucial that I never find out who you are? I damn well wouldn't want to go back and live with with a liar.
     I most of all can't believe that you would just give up your only child, and lie, and change my life into a horrible, messed up, demented life to live! I hate you! I hate you! I hate you! I could live a normal life if it wasn't for you. I could be at school right now, making friends and learning. But instead, because of you, I'll never go to a real school!
    I know damn well that you never sent me to a school, because I was as dumb as cork when I arrived here, and I had to be taught basic maths when I was 10.
     I hope no one ever has a parent like you. Because you disgust me.'

I hole punched the note and walked back to the staff room. I heard no noise inside, and when I opened the door, no one was inside. I tip toed in and opened my file that still laid on the table. I put the note in the very front and closed the file again. Then I slipped back out and joined breakfast.

When I sat at a table with my breakfast, Letta walked over and sat beside me. "Hey Justine." She said. "Who's Justine?" I asked. "Umm you." Letta said, obviously coonfused. I laughed and said "I'm Daphnie. Daphnie Bridgit Ross. I found out Justine isn't my real name. 'Ross' isn't my real surnme, but I can't figure out my real surname, so I chose 'Ross'." I explained. cutting out the parts about m dad and filling them with lies.

Letta nodded ad said "Are you sure you haven;t lost your memory?" "Ugh, kids are so immature." I teased. "I'm all grown up, I'm 20."  I added. "I forgot about yur birthday!" Letta yelled and ran out of the room.

An hour later Letta came back with a card. She handed it to me. All it said was 'Happy Birthday' in horrible writing. I faked a smile and Letta ran out again, her long brown hair flowing behind her. Soon she came back and ate her breakfast as normal.

All of the sudden, the room went quiet, and everyone started singing Happy Birthday. The cook came out with a blue birthday cake that said 'Happy 20th Birthday, Our Dear Daphnie Bridgit Ross.' I saw a few people frown in confusion when they saw the name.

I blew out the candle and was given the biggest peice, it also said my name. Letta got a peice that said '20th Bir'. The cake was large enough that all the kids got a peice. I only ate half of mine, because it was too sweet. Letta finished up my peice and I headed back to my room. O stopped in the doorway of our room and gasped.

My side of the room was absoloutely covered with presents. You couldn't see the floor, my bed, my table and chair, or my dresser. And that was all I had in my side of the room.
