Diana: Girl with the broken soul.

"Name three things to describe yourself." My new father said. The other boys gawked at me, but in a polite way... They all looked my new dad's-well Louis he told me to call him,- age, like in their twenties...
"Oh honey don't be shy," the blonde one said smiling, flashing his beautiful teeth.
I took a deep breath and mumbled,
"Tired,alone,scared."
They looked confused. Until the one with the jet black hair said...
"Honey.... You don't need to be like this anymore. You can trust us. I swear it. You can tell us anything at any time and we'll keep our mouths shut. I can see it in your eyes, feel your body language and see that you don't trust us or.... Something was happening to you before we adopted you....please don't be afraid. Don't cry. Your free from that place now, okay?" He grabbed my hand and pulled me into his chest while i spilled everything.

2. Exactly What I Expected

I stepped away from the mirror and sighed. I quickly got washed up and dressed. Nothing fit me though... Since i was underfed, i was really skinny. With my baggy sweatpants and shirt, i sat downstair at a table and started to pull out my drawing book and pens. Of course I was quiet anyway, so I didn't need to worry about Ms. Becky's warning. I started doodling when I heard the doorbell ring. I looked up alert. Ms. Becky ran to open the door and she greeted them. "Welcome! Are you Mr. Tomlinson?" A tall-ish boy, well I guess a man, walked in, followed by a slightly shorter, blonde haired man, a raven-haired man, a man with slicked back hair with a bandana tied around it, and lastly.... A really really really attractive man with brown hair and the beginnings of a full beard... Wow he was really stunning. I mean they were all handsome, but that one... There was something about him that made me get butterflies.... WAIT WAIT WAIT!!!! I can't fall in love already, i wont even see him again! Who would want someone as broken as me? Some one with bruises and scars.... Whatever... No need in me getting excited over this. While Ms. Becky was talking, I walked silently up the stairs to my room. I sat down on my pallet and continued to draw. But then she called me downstairs. "Giovanni! Please come down!" I came downstairs. I was scared she was going to hit me but at the same time I knew she wouldn't because she'd be arrested. I walked down the stairs when she raised her arms. Scared, I flinched and stepped back. She secretly made a face at me but quickly smiled to cover it. "Oh she's been through a lot. Her parents were murdered and she was kidnapped and.... It was really tragic. But being the bright girl she is, she escaped while the man wasn't looking, she ran. And when i say she ran, I mean she darted away. At only 6 years old, too. She screamed and screamed until she ran up to my car. She was crying and screaming at me to let her in my car, the man was chasing her. But as soon as I tried to open the door, he caught her and started beating her.... The police caught and arrested the man, and being a childcare service worker, I was granted custody of her, and I started an orphanage. A tough cookie this one is, isn't she?" I was outraged. She had completely lied about my story. True, my parents had been murdered, but by accident. There was a robbery, and the man started to shoot. Standing there, the five men stood there and were shocked. "Wooow.... How old are you love?" The Mr. Tomlinson guy asked, a sweet smile on his face. " 18, sir." He turned to the others and whispered,"She's adorable." The boy with the bandana whispered back,"Oh c'mon Lou, if were going to adopt, shouldn't we start at the younger ages? Yes she could be the one, I have nothing against her, but...." The boy with the black hair spoke up,"I don't care what you say Harry,she's tired and she wants a home. She's been here 12 years." They all stopped to look at you and The one with the bandana said, "Can we start at the younger ages please?" They all gave him a look, indicating that that's not what what they had planned. "Sure. We'll go down the hall to the ages starting from 11." They glumly agreed and gave me sad looks before looking away and following Ms. Becky. I went upstairs with tears in my eyes.

*********

The boys came back from looking around. They started arguing. "You know boys, if you cant decide, then I'll give you the rest of the day to think about it then you can come back tomorrow and adopt? Okay? Don't be distressed!" She smiled. "Okay. Then, I guess we'll see you tomorrow." Mr.Tomlinson said. "Oh and by the way, who would be the father if you were planning to adopt one of the orphans?" She asked. "I would be, I'm 22. They wouldn't be the brothers though. They would just be the family friends,I guess." Mr. Tomlinson said. "Alrighty then... See you tomorrow!" Ms. Becky smiled and waved as they exited the orphanage.
