Chapter Twenty

Zelda's POV:

"She's dead.. But you have a grandmother and a grandfather and you have an aunt and an uncle as well, who has a son, your cousin. You have a whole family in Brazil, I knew that, but I didn't think they would talk to me.

It turns out your mother never told her about you, she only told her about me once and I never met any of them. So recently I got in contact with your grandmother.

I hired a detective find your mother, but all he found was her family, your grandmother told me that your mother is dead, she is buried in Brazil. I've been talking to your grandmother for some time, they all want to meet you." As Dad said those words I stopped breathing.

How could he keep this from me? I had a family in Brazil? I had a freaking family in Brazil, I'm hearing about it now! This day was getting slightly more confusing for me.

"Why didn't you tell me sooner Dad?!" I snapped feeling the tears push on. "I'm so sorry Zelda.. I wish I'd told you sooner, but I'm telling you now sweetie" dad patted my back "Don't.. Touch me!" I yelled, pulling away from him. "I don't care that you're telling me now.. You should have told me that you even tried to find mom. I wanted to be a part of this.. Is that why you were never home that much?" I was furious now

"I'm sorry, and yes I worked with the detective everyday. What do you want me to do Zelda?" Dad looked at me sadly "Get out of my room, I don't want to talk to you anymore!" I grabbed his arm and dragged him out of my room closing the door behind him.

My heart was slightly falling apart.. Now it wasn't because of Luke, he sort if made it better. But now my dad had screwed everything up. If he had to find my mother, he could have consulted me first.

My mother was from Brazil, that meant I was half Brazilian. It was so weird thinking my mother was from another country so far away.

Did I look like my mother? Who did I even look like? Anyone?

My eyes were tired and more tears came flowing out of them. My mind seemed unclear and I felt restless. Everything I had known in my life was suddenly turned up side down.

Right now I didn't want to talk to dad. But I wanted to talk to someone so bad.. I couldn't call Luke just like that, or could I? He was the one person on my mind, the one I wanted to call and tell all about my mom.

Phone conversation:

"Zelda? I'm so happy you called, I've missed you" Luke gasped into the phone.

"Luke.. Listen this is not what you think it is, at least not yet. I'm going to let you know about the other thing in half a month." I started

"The reason I'm calling is my mom"

"Oh okay, I'm still so sorry though.. Your mom.. Did something happen?"

"My dad just told me he found her"

"He found her? That's great! Isn't it?"

"Luke, it's not.. She's dead for starters and he told me I have a whole other family in Brazil. That's where she's from. I'm so angry at him right now, he kept it a secret for so long"

"Zelda.. Wow, I'd never expected that! Are you okay?"

"I don't know to be honest.. I'm actually happy to know I have a family out there you know.. But I still can't believe all the things that are happening right now I just.. Need a friend for right now Luke, will you be that friend?"

"I can't imagine how you must feel.. Well I broke your heart and now this, I wish you wouldn't have to go through this. Of course I'll be your friend right now, if that's what you need"

"Thanks Luke, can you come over?"

"I'll be there in a heartbeat"

I decided I was going to give myself half a month to think about whether I was going with Luke or not. But I still wanted him to know I loved him.

Even though we weren't together at the moment it didn't mean I wouldn't see him. He was still my best friend. I wanted to take him back so badly, it wasn't like he had done anything, he just misjudged the whole situation.

I think being apart for so long made me realise just how much I actually loved him, and the fact that he just wrote me the best letter ever was so amazing.

"Zelda? Your dad let me in" Luke appeared behind the door, I waved for him to enter the room. "Hi Luke" I took one look at him and burst I to tears falling into his gentle and strong arms.

He hugged me tightly kissing my forehead several times "I'm so truly very sorry my love". I looked up into his beautiful eyes "It's okay Luke, I forgive you. I love you so much. I don't know what I would do without you. I just want you to know, the letter you wrote me was so beautiful Lukey. You still have my heart, I know why you did it, it wasn't your fault you just misjudged the whole situation".

"I want nothing more than to be your boyfriend again, Zelda I have been in pain everyday and I do regret it so much" Luke still held me in a tight hug staring at me.

"Luke Hemmings... Will you be my boyfriend again?" I swallowed hard and looked at him. He nodded happily "Are you kidding me? Of course I will! I love you! I'm so happy right now!" He spun me around and softly kissed my nose.

"Even though you're mine again, I still need some time to think about the tour okay?" I said smiling. "Of course baby, take the time you need, I'm just happy you don't hate me" Luke kissed me on the cheek making blush slightly.

"Luke, I could never hate you. You are the best thing in my life. And right now I really need you. We are meant to be Lukey" I took his head in my hands and softly kissed his lips.

I jumped up and he grabbed me carrying me to my bed. He laid me down and gently planted kisses on my neck making me moan.

"Luke.." I grabbed his neck and placed a kiss on his lips. We both pulled away and lay on the bed cuddling. My head laid on his chest as I gently stroked his left arm that was holding me.

"I love you Lukey" I kissed his hand and closed my eyes. "I love you too Zel." Luke kissed my forehead. I could feel my body getting heavy soon I fell asleep.
