There standing in front of me was my mother. The woman I thought had been dead for a good portion of my life. My heart started to swell. Harry grabbed a hold of my hand and whispered that everything was going to be fine. She stood there with a little three year old girl on her hip.
"Hello?" She questioned looking at me and Harry.
"Lilith Roberts?" Harry asked.
"No." She stated firmly. "It's Lilith Anderson. I haven't been a Roberts in about fourteen years."
My eyes widened. Suddenly I felt a bunch of fear enter my body. What if she didn't want anything to do with me? My heart started to ache.
"So you were indeed married to Daniel Roberts?" Harry asked.
"Sadly." She frowned. "Why all these questions?"
"He was just sent to prison yesterday."
"Oh really? Finally that jackass gets what he deserves." She smiled a bit. "What for?"
"Trying to murder your daughter." Harry stated very bluntly.
I felt like I was stating to have a panic attack. It was getting harder to breath. She looked at Harry then looked at me.
"Kenzie?" Her words made me want to cry. "Come inside you two."
We walked inside following her into the kitchen. We sat down at the counter as she handed us each a drink. She didn't say anything for awhile she just stared at me with sympathetic eyes.
"I thought you were dead...." I mumbled.
"Your father told you that?" She laughed. "Doesn't surprise me. He forced me to leave, I didn't want to leave my precious baby girl behind but he threatened to kill you if I didn't."
"Well he almost did anyways." Harry groaned and pulled up my sleeves revealing all the bruises, cuts, and burns. Her eyes widened with hurt filling them.
"Oh my god." Her voice cracked. "I'm so sorry Makenzie...."
Harry turned to me with an evil grin plastered on his face. I felt my own start heating up. I haven't heard my whole name in ages. The girl who totally checked out Harry earlier came in looking at Harry again. I groaned which made Harry chuckle.
"Mom who are they?" She asked.
"This is your older sister Kenzie." She smiled at me. "And...I'm sorry I didn't catch your name.."
"Harry." He smiled at them.
"Kenzie this is Phoebe, and this little girl is Charlie." My mother smiled at me.
"Harry do you have a girlfriend?" Phoebe asked rubbing Harry's arm. Were we really sisters?! I groaned again which made him chuckle again.
"Boys come meet your older sister." Mother yelled into the living room. The two boys ran into the kitchen and stood in front of me.
"Kenzie this is Alexander and Jack."
They both smiled at me then hugged me which I was surprised about. Then they ran back to the living room, back to their cartoons.
"Was that the only reason you guys came out here?" My mother asked.
"No, my friend Eleanor's mother wants to adopt Kenzie." Harry said. "But they need your signature."
"I can't do that." She shook her head which surprised me more. "Knowing now that my crazy ex husband is behind bars I rather have Kenzie live with me."
