Finding My Soul Mate. A 1DFanfic.

13 year old Lucy hates her life. Her older sister, Amy doesn't have a care in the world about her and her dad is a work-aholic. Without a mum in her life she has nothing better to do than run away from home, making a soul mate along her travels, Niall Horan from One Direction.


51. Bringing up the past.

An annoying sound rang through my ears. I groaned and hit my alarm clock repeatedly until it stopped buzzing. It's the 16th of February which means I have exactly seven days until the Justin Bieber concert in London, with Eloise. I'm actually really excited for it. I would have expected to be this excited for something that doesn't even bother me that much. I know I said I liked Justin a lot but ever since Christmas day and up to the new year, my liking for him has decreased by a huge amount. But I still wont pass up the opportunity to see him live in concert because it's something I've always wanted to do.

"Come on, are you awake? Oh good because I didn't want to have to pour water all over you." My elder sister walks into my room, talking the second she opens the door. I groan, again. 

"Why are you in my room at half past six in the morning? Shouldn't you still be in bed?" I ask, sitting up and resting my back against the headboard. 

"I need to do your hair earlier today. James is taking me out for breakfast with his parents and he wanted to drive you to school for some reason I don't know so you need to get out of bed and get ready so I can do whatever it is that you want me to do with your hair today. Come on chop, chop, mush, mush. GET READY!" Her voice got louder as she rambled on about doing my hair for me. She was out of breath by the time she'd finished. I laughed at her and hopped out of my warm bed. 

"Alright, OK, I'm up. Get out of my room so I can change." I ordered her. She obliged and literally ran out of my room, stubbing her pinky toe on my door frame. I'm sure I hear her mutter a few curse words under her breath before she enters my bathroom, not wanting to walk down the hall to hers. 


Lazy cow.


I laugh at her again. I guess I'd be the same if I was meeting my boyfriends parents for the first time. Rubbing the sleep out of my eyes, I slowly walk over to my closet, flicking my light switch on as I pass it. My eyes take a few seconds to adjust to the new brightness in my chilly room. 

After pulling my black jeans onto my legs and my favourite army style top, I walk out into my bathroom. I find my sister in there, standing in front of the mirror, just looking at her self, holding onto the side of my sink for support. 


"What if they don't like me? James' parents, what if they don't like me?" She prides her eyes from her reflection to look at me. A sad expression clear. 

"They won't like you.. they'll love you!" I smile.

"I sure hope so. Now come on, let's get that mane tamed." She teases my bedhead with a smile.

"Shut up." I scold her. Our laughs blend together and I like the sound. I missed spending time with Amy so I'm glad we got our sister bond back before we moved, even if it's only to have the little time as we do on a morning.  


Amy styled my brown locks into loose curls and smiled at me as she finished adding a little hair spray. I smiled back and hopped off my chair, pulling her into a hug. She laughed lightly and hugged me back. "Thank you, you should become a hair stylist." I pull away and she laughs at my comment. 

"I was been serious.." My voice trails down the hall way as I grab my bag from the top of the stairs and walk down. A knock sounds as soon as my feet hit the bottom step. Perfect timing James. I open the door and he smiles down at me. 

"Morning kid." He speaks and steps into the house when I move out of the way to let him in. I grab an apple from the kitchen table and walk back out to see my sister and James talking and smiling at each other. 

"Not interrupting am I?" I smirk at them as James kisses Amy's cheek then opens the front door for me. 


"What's the reason then?" I ask James when the silence becomes awkward between us. 

"Reason? For what?" 

"Taking me to school. Amy said there was a reason?" 

"Oh, I just wanted to ask you something.." He looks at me briefly before connecting his eyes back to the road. 

"OK?" I stare at his cheek as he still faces the road. 

"Do you know who Carter Smith is?" The question shocked me and confused me at the same time. Obviously James knows Carter for him to mention this in the first place. No one knows about what he did, only Sam and I. 

"Why?" I ask, before answering his question. 

"Just answer the question and I'll tell you after."

"OK. Yes I do, now tell me why!" I demand. The car comes to a stop and I realise we have arrive outside my school. I undo my seat belt and turn to face him fully. He does the same and opens his mouth to speak but closes it again. He's starting to scare me. I couldn't bare even the fact of anyone knowing the slightest detail of what happened. 

"He's my brother. He told me.." James pauses. BROTHER?! Of course he is. James Smith, Carter Smith. Why didn't I realise before? I couldn't have realise really thought because loads of people have Smith as a last name but still. 

"He told you what?!" My heart starts to race and my hand becomes clammy. He can't be his brother, he can't have told him. No.

"I was talking to my parents about your sister and mentioned her full name when he was in the room. He looked at me and smirked but didn't say anything so after I finished talking to my parents, I went to talk to him." James' features change. My heart rate wont slow down and my hand is not sweating. 

"He told me that he knew you from when you were six and something happened, that's why our whole family moved here. I was told it was because my mum got a work promotion but he told me it was because of him but I knew I couldn't say anything to my parents about it. I asked him to tell me what happened with you and that I wouldn't say anything so don't repeat this to anyone. He told me that he did something that involved you and your cousin, Sam but he said Sammy in a mocking tone." This is all too much for me but I need to know what James knows. I nod for him to continue. I'm going to be late for classes for the first time in my life but in this moment of time, I don't really care. 

"That something, he wouldn't tell me but by his devious smirk and choice of words, I have a feeling it's a bad thing. What happened, Lucy?" He finishes his explanation with a sympathetic smile. I don't need his sympathy, I never needed anyone's sympathy then and I still don't now. 

"Your.. your his brother? Why didn't I know this before, why didn't I click on?" I ask, more to myself than James. 

"I have a sister too." I look away from him and out of the windshield of his car. The parking lot is empty, not a single person in sight. 

"Annabel?" I wonder.

"How do you know Annabel?"

"I've known her for as long as I've known Carter." I say, quietly. 

"Lucy, what happened?" 

"I.. I'm sorry. I can't tell you, James. I didn't even know Carter and Annabel had an older brother! They never mentioned you, why?" 

"I was never around when they were little, I left when me and my father had an argument of some sort and went to stay with my best friend, at the time, he was 17 and I was only 13. Outrageous, right? I only visited once a month until my father apologised. I was accepted back into the family with open arms two years later but by that time, Carter and Anabel were already  8 and 9 years old. They blocked me out because I was never there as a big brother for them. They knew who I was but they didn't like to talk to me or of me, to anyone." I was a little taken back by all of this information I was receiving from James' past. He was telling me the answers to questions I didn't even ask. I saw his eyes turn glossy.

"After that-"

"James, stop." I don't want him to feel like he has to tell me everything when Amy probably doesn't even know anything about all of this. He nods at me and tries his best to smile.

"I will tell you but only because you've just told me all of that and because he's your brother." I clear my throat but then think of something before I can start. Annabel.

"Wait. Where's Annabel then? If Carter goes to this school and your whole family moved here, where's Annabel?" I ask.

"She lost her memory and only remembers who her family are. The friends she had were left in London so they didn't matter in a way. I know now that this was a bad thing to think but when I knew she was in the hospital, most likely to not remember anything, I hoped that she would forget what happened with me but she didn't, she remembered everything and still didn't talk to me or of me. I also found it weird that she only remembered family related things. So she doesn't know who you are. She does go to this school but I'm guessing she looks totally different from when you knew her." I nod at the information. I take a deep breath. I'm about to tell my sisters boyfriend, the sister that doesn't even know any of this, what happened. I don't feel it's the right thing to do, but I'm going to tell him. Then I'll tell my sister when I get home. Yes, that's what I'll do.


"OK. Here goes nothing.." 



Cliffhanger...   MUHAHAHAHA!
