11. Court Date.
I tried straightening my shirt out as I looked at myself in the mirror. I was so nervous. Eleanor wanted me to wear a skirt she picked out but with the bruises and burns on my legs I decided to wear a pair of skinny jeans. I looked around to noticed Harry standing at the door with a rose in his hand. He smiled cheekily at me as I walked closer to him.
"Gosh you are so beautiful." He said kissing my cheek.
"Thank you." I said taking the rose and setting it on the desk.
"Ready to go Ken?" Elle asked behind Harry. Louis was standing there with his arm around her. He had a soft caring smile on his face. I nodded and we headed out the down to the court house. Walking into the room my heart started racing a mile a minute. On one said of the courtroom was my lawyer and I. The other side was my father dressed in orange jail suit. My eyes didn't leave him. He had a smile glued to his face. It only got bigger when they showed the pictures of my bruises and burns. His smile made me uncomfortable. I felt like I was going to be sick. Then I heard the judge speak.
"Jury.." She started but my thoughts flooded in.
Then I heard it. "Guilty." Tears rushed down my face while my father's dumb smile faded into a angry scowl. I felt Eleanor hug me with tears in her eyes. Her mom walked up to the judge. They started talking about me getting adopted.
"Hmm...You have to have her mother signature." The judge said.
"My mom is dead ma'am..." I spoke up.
"According to these records she isn't..." She said looking at the papers. "Your mother is Lilith Roberts right?"
"Y-yes.." I stuttered.
"She's not dead then child." The judge said.
I suddenly felt real weak and sick again. I felt my knees start shaking. Harry wrapped his arms around me holding me up. We walked out of the courtroom and I felt tears rush out of my eyes. My mother is alive? I was so little it wouldn't surprise me that I don't remember correctly. I just remember my father saying she wasn't coming home again. That she was in heaven with all of the other angels. My heart started pounding.
