One week later:
We are now in New Zealand and I finally found the name of mom in the phone book. Eve Hemmings, 43 Vogel Street...
There is no turning back now! I drove there and knocked on the door. Mom did open. She stared at me with wide eyes and trembling lips. She covered her mouth with her hand as tears flowed down her face. Within a split second, she passed out but I caught her before she could hit the ground. "MOM SERIOUSLY" I yelled as I carried her to the car and drove her to the hotel I was staying in.
As soon as she woke up, she propped herself up on her elbows. "LUKE OH MY GOD HOW DID YOU FIND ME COME HERE" She yelled standing up wanting to hug me. I took a step back though. "Mom we have to talk, sit down please" I said.
We sat down beside each other on the bed. She was still looking at me with watery eyes and an incredulous smile. "You were the one that was supposed to look for me not the other way around. You left me when I needed you most. WHAT KIND OF A MOTHER ARE YOU? YOU WOULDN'T HAVE BEEN ABLE TO RECOGNIZE ME IF IT WASN'T FOR THE T.V." I snapped.
"Luke, son listen to me. You have all the right to be angry. I love you more than anything in the whole world but my life with your dad... it was hell! He abused me. I wanted to take you with me alright? your dad got the custody of you though, what was I supposed to do?" she asked with more tears streaming down her face.
"NOT LEAVE ME TO SUFFER ALONE WITH HIM" I yelled. "I'm so so sorry my love please let me hug you I missed you" She said running her fingers through my hair. "No mom" I said standing up and walking out the door. Just then, none other than Cassidy called.
"What do you want?" I snapped. "How rude! I sent you an envelope along with the fans' gifts that you receive. Make sure to open it. Trust me, you would want to know what's going on while you're gone" She said. "What do you mean?" I asked when she laughed. "Your little angelic girlfriend isn't an angel alright? She and Justin are just too cute together. I think I've said enough" She said before hanging up.
Flashback (One day earlier):
Dad finally let me go to a party... under one condition: To go with Justin. I have no idea why everyone is trusting him so much. I wanted to tell Luke but he had a concert therefore he didn't answer me then. I think I drank too much since I found myself on my bed the next day. I had no idea who had carried me.
"Relax Cass, I didn't rape her or anything. I just took pictures of us together in bed that are enough to get Luke to break up with her" I said to Cassidy the day after the party. "Great Justin, I sent the envelope just now. I even put the record of I like you so much there" She said to me when we both laughed and entered school.
