Hidden letters *complete*

Some things are not meant to be discovered. And the letters Adele found are one of these things.


16. Chapter Sixteen

“I know where she is!” I exclaimed as we rushed in Harry’s car. The latter had waited for Darcy and me at the train station.

“How do you know this?” he asked, closing the door.

“She always goes there when she does not feel very well.” I shrugged my shoulders. “We should reach the place soon; it’s not very far from here.”

Harry started off and followed my instructions. Apart from that, no one was talking. It was very weird to think that I was in this car with my new family. I had to get used to this.

“That’s here!” I yelled a while later and Harry parked the car in front of the portal.

“Is that your house?” Darcy asked me as she stepped out. I joined her side out of the car, shaking my head.

“No, it’s not. It’s my mum’s best friend’s.” As we were talking, Harry had walked toward the letter box and couldn’t take his eyes off it.

“Dad?” Darcy shouted. He didn’t answer. “Dad!” she shouted louder. He turned around suddenly and stared at her.


“Is everything alright?” She walked toward him and looked at the letter box as well.

“Oh. I see,” she muttered.

“What’s wrong? Do you know the Tomlinsons?” Why were they reacting that way?

“Of course we do!” Harry answered as if it was obvious. Then, he walked up toward the front door and rang. We followed him.

Soon afterwards, it was Louis who opened the door, a smile on his face. But he froze when he saw Harry. He stepped closer to him and the two men hugged tightly.

“It has been so long, Haz’!” Louis exclaimed, half crying. “But I guess you didn’t come here for that,” he chuckled, pushing himself aside so we could walk in.

“Louis was dad’s best friend when he was younger. They were in the same band,” Darcy explained me. She must have noticed I was staring at them wonderingly. That explained everything then.

Louis led us in the living-room where we found Mum and Eleanor talking while drinking a cup of tea. They both looked up at us and mum dropped her cup. It fell on the floor and broke into pieces with a loud noise. She suddenly knelt down, apologizing and trying to pick up the fragments of the cup.

“You’re gonna get hurt. Let me help you,” Harry said gently kneeling down beside her. She stared at him intensely and nodded shyly, blushing. We all watched them picking up what remained of the cup in silence. I could see Eleanor and Louis smiling widely; they seemed happy to see mum and Harry together.

A short while later, everything was back to normal but there was an awkward atmosphere in the house. It felt like they all wanted to speak but none of them dared to talk.

Suddenly, mum stood up, thanked Eleanor and said she was leaving. Harry got up hastily as well and told her he would drive her back home. I heard Darcy giggle next to me. It was time for them to be alone.

Mum nodded and they both walked out of the house without talking.

“We should leave as well, I guess,” I exclaimed awhile later. We said goodbye and rushed outside where we saw Lucy and Harry sitting on the sidewalk, talking. We slowly walked toward them and they turned around, smiling. Then, they stood up and we noticed they were holding hands.

“I have been dreaming of this day since years. I have been dreaming of having a family like ours for so long. And I really am glad this day finally came. I can’t be happier because starting from no we are a family,” Harry whispered, tears forming in his eyes. Mum squeezed his hand and smiled at him, weeping.

“We are a family. Forever,” mum repeated and the four of us hugged. It was a family hug.
