It's Complicated

Zoey Tomlinson thinks her life is amazing before she finds out things she isn't supposed to. There are things she was never supposed to know. She wants to know more, but her 'dad' tells her to drop it. He's saying everything she hears is a lie. But something tells her differently.


2. Chapter Two

Zoey's P.O.V.

    I woke up and remembered that I was adopted. I need to talk to my parents, I guess, about this. I went downstairs to find them. "Good morning, sweetie." my mom said. "Hi, can I talk to you guys?" I asked. "Sure!" my dad said and patted the spot next to him. I was kind of annoyed about this whole situation, so I ignored him and sat on the other side of the table. "Am I adopted?" I asked. "Where did you hear that?" he asked. "It doesn't matter where I heard it. I just want to know if it's true." I said. "Of course not! You're our daughter." he said. "Okay. That's all I wanted to know." I said and left. Wow. They lied to me. I can't believe they would do that! I want to find out who my real family is, but I don't even know if the hospital they told me is the real place I was born. So, I guess I should tell them I know they are lying to start.

    I got dressed and did my normal morning routine, then went to talk to my parents again. They were watching TV. All I did was walk in front of them and say, "I know you're lying. How could you do that to me?" Then, I started crying and ran to my room. A few minutes later, there was a knock at my door. "What?" I said and threw the door against the wall. "How do you know?" my mom asked. "You lie to me and that's what you come to talk to me about? Wow. I'm glad you aren't my real mother." I said and slammed the door shut.

    I was blasting my music, when my 'dad' stormed in my room. He unplugged my iPhone dock and took both my phone and the dock. "Hey! That's mine! I used my money on it!" I yelled. "You're grounded! You are not aloud to speak to your mother that way!" he said. I snatched my stuff back and set it down so he couldn't get to it. "It's mine. And I don't have to listen to you! You aren't my dad!" I yelled. "I am your father! You are my daughter! You will listen to me!" he yelled. "I will never be your daughter! No matter what you do or say! You are not my father! You don't have the right to boss me around! Both you and 'Mom' lied to me! You aren't my parents and you aren't in charge of me!" I yelled. "Then get out of my house." he said. "What?" I asked. Is he kicking me out? Where am I supposed to go? I don't know who my real family is. "I'm not in charge of you, so get out of my house." he said. I nodded and gave a fake smile. "Fine. I don't want to be here anyways. This place is full of liars!" I screamed and grabbed all the important stuff in a bag, then grabbed my keys, hopped in my car and left. I felt really bad for Carrie. I guess I can start calling her that now. She was crying her eyes out when I stormed out. After all, she did want to tell me. It was David that wasn't going to.

    The first place I thought to go was Rachel's house. But when I got there, I remembered she left with her family for vacation not long ago. Great. Now where will I go? I was thinking, when my phone interrupted my thoughts. It was Carrie.

(C- Carrie, Z- Zoey)

Z- Hello?

C- Thank goodness! Please come home!

Z- David kicked me out, plus I don't want to be there. It isn't my home.

C- It is your home! You are always welcome here! I don't care what he did, I care about you and you need somewhere to stay!

Z- You want me to be okay? And even better, forgive you?

C- Of course! I'll do anything!

Z- Tell me everything you know about my real parents and where I can find them.

C- Your mom's real name is Jay Tomlinson. That's all I know.

Z- My dad's name? Where I was born? The hospital?

C- I don't know who your dad is. You were born in Doncaster, at the Doncaster Royal Infirmary. Also the same place as your brother. I'm unsure of his name. It's like Lewis or something like that.

Z- I need a hotel for tonight and a plane ticket to Doncaster tomorrow. Plus taxi money and spare money for food.

C- Okay. Come back and get it.

Z- Okay.

    I hug up and turned around to go back home. Carrie was outside waiting for me. "David doesn't know I'm out here." she said. "I'm not surprised. Thank you for this. I don't want him to be mad at you." I said. "I'd rather it be him than you." she said. I smiled and hugged her. "If it makes you feel better, I'll call you and let you know where I'm staying and when I get to Doncaster tomorrow." I said. She nodded. "Good luck. And don't tell David I'm helping you." she said. I nodded and got back in my car to drive away.

    I checked into a cheap hotel and immediately laid down. I thought about everything that's been going on. Why was I sent away when I was born? How do I have the same last name if I was adopted? I'm so confused. Luckily, my drowsiness took over and I soon fell asleep.
