Long Lost Twin

My name is Lizzie, my Mum recently died from cancer so I was forced to live with my aunt. That also meant moving schools and making new friends. I did have a Dad but I never knew him. Mum did, they split when I was born. He took my twin and Mum took me.

58. Chapter 54: Apologise

I stare out of the window while I wait for the water to finish boiling in the kettle. After the kettle turns off, I pour the boiling water into my mug and then replace the kettle on the stand.

I pick my mug up and leave the kitchen and enter the living room. I fall into the sofa and put my mug onto the table next to the armrest. I grab the remote for the TV and switch it on. I browse through channels until I find a decent programme to watch. I settled on Friends.

Half way through the episode, Louis stumbles into the living room and sits down next to me on the sofa.

“I promise I will try and stop.” He tells me. I nod and pick up my mug and take a sip of the warm tea before placing it back down on the mat. I turn to face Louis.

“Throw away every ounce you have, you won’t buy any more. If I catch with drugs I will leave and you will never see your child.” I threaten. “I know it’s harsh, but there is no way I can bring up a child while his or her dad is on drugs.”

“I understand. I promise I will throw them all away.” He replies. He kisses my forehead and wraps his arm around me.

“Did you cheat on me?” I ask him. I suddenly remember the picture from Ed’s party he went to. Louis nods and his eyes move to the floor. “Why?” My eyes fill up with tears. Why does everyone cheat on me?

“I was high, she promised more drugs. I’m sorry, Liz. It was only once.” Louis admits.

I shake my head. “Why does everyone cheat on me?” I sob before standing up and running from the room.

“Liz!” Louis calls after me. I couldn’t face him. He slept with someone else.

I tip the cold tea that I left in the living room down the sink. My back is killing me from sleeping on the floor in the spare room.

 I feel bad for shutting Louis out, but I’m hoping he will learn. Maybe I should just leave him and move on. I could work for another band and find someone else. The problem is that I’m pregnant with Louis’ baby. I always promised myself I would never raise a child on my own. I didn’t want the child to have the same life I had. The life of not living, or knowing, your own dad.

I let out a long sigh and turn around to face Louis standing by the fridge.

“Please stop avoiding me.” He begs. “I know what I did was wrong . . .” He pauses and walks closer to me. “But you have to forgive me. I’ll do anything, just don’t leave me. I want to marry you; I want to have a family with you. I can’t lose you again because I know I won’t get you back.”

“Promise me you won’t do it again, and if you take drugs or cheat again you will never hear from me.” I tell him. He nods before kissing my cheek.

“I’m really sorry.” He whispers before lightly touching his lips on mine. He pulls back and pulls me into a hug.

 

A/N –

Sorry this is a short chapter. I’m really, really tired. I was working today (I have a new job so I work weekends). I also have been really busy lately because of homework and I have to practise a speech for English which is part of coursework.

Tomorrow I have work so I might not update because I most likely will be very tired and I have homework to do.

Next Thursday there will not be an update as I’m going on a school trip (for geography coursework) and I won’t be back until late.

I’m sorry about the lack of updates :(
