36. Unexpected turn of events

I crawled onto my bed and sat with my legs crisscrossed. I wanted Harry. I wanted Niall. I wanted Louis. I guess I was still expecting to hear pebbles hit my bedroom window then I would open up the glass and see Louis standing outside with a bouquet of roses. But cut the crap. This isn’t a Nicholas Sparks’ love story, its reality. I took a deep breath. I will not cry, because I know that’s weakness in my ey- wait. I pulled out my guitar and started strumming. I had a sudden urge to write a song. I did that often. When I was sad, I’d put all my emotions onto paper, creating a song. But no one has ever seen any of my songs; I keep them in a notebook that I hide under my mattress. As my beat was getting more and more to what I heard in my head I started to sing.

Shaking your head like it's all wrong
Before you're here you're already gone
And even with the light all around you
You're all alone in the dark.
You're breaking your own heart
Taking it too far down the lonely road
You say you just want love
But when it's close enough you just let it go
The very thing you've been the most afraid of
You've been doing it from the start, breaking your own heart.
Too many tears, too many falls
It's easier here behind these walls
But you don't have to walk in the shadows
Life is so hard-

I was cut off by a knock on my door that startled me.  I quickly wrote down the last lyrics I’d sung.

“Come in.” I invited.

My mom peeked her head inside. “Hey honey.”

I put my guitar down. “Hey.” I smiled weakly.

“We didn’t know you were coming home today.” My mom laughed.

I shrugged. “I had to come home someday.”

She nodded. “Look sweetheart, I don’t know how to tell you this but-”

I stared at her worriedly. “Mum- please.” I cried, not wanting to hear any more bad news.

“Darling, your father got a job back in Switzerland.” Pause. “It’d be a great opportunity.”

I sighed. Well I have no more friends here so, I don’t mind that much. “So were moving?”

She looked at me sadly. “We are.” She paused. “But not you.”

My face crumbled. “What do you mean not me?! I’m your daughter for crying out loud! You can’t just abandon me like you’ve already done once before!” I yelled tears streaming down my face.

“Sweetie, the job offer comes along with a nice house, the only condition is that your dad can only bring one person.” She reached her hand to put on my shoulder .

I backed away in horror, hitting my bedframe. “I NEED a mother!” I cried. “Why did you people even have me in the first place if you don’t even want me?!” I shouted.

“Listen honey-” She tried to soothe.

“Don’t you honey me.” I spat. “And you even dare call yourself a MOTHER?!” I yelled at her. I couldn’t even think straight. Tears were running down my cheeks. I was angry, sad, and lonely, but mostly scared.

I fell back onto the bed. “So what am I supposed to do?” I nearly whispered. “Go back to auntie?”

My mom straightened out the comforters on my bed. “Auntie… Auntie has finally found a husband, she can’t take you.”

“When were you going to tell me anyways? Were you going to run off while I was in London? Have me come back to no house, no family?” I said through gritted teeth.

She looked outside guiltily. Ignoring my question she continued on. “We leave Wednesday.” She said quietly.

“That’s in TWO DAYS!”I shouted. “Where am I supposed to go?!” I glared at her. “What am I supposed to do?!”

She looked at me calmly. “You could go with Nia-”

I rolled my eyes. “Don’t drop me off at my brother’s. I’m not his responsibility.” I spat. “Besides, even he can’t take me with him.” I lied.

“I’m sure I could talk to him-”

“You know what? Do whatever you want. I don’t care about any of you. You can all go rot in hell for all I care. I HATE you!” I yelled as loud as I possibly could.

She sat on my bed just looking at me. No facial expression whatsoever. “Look at you. You don’t even have an inch of guilt in you.” I glared at her.

She got up quietly. “Well figure things out.” Was all she said as she walked out of my room shutting my door.
