The Poor Woman's Daughter

"Am I just some charity event to you?" I asked backing up. "No! Why would you think that?" he asked as he slowly inched towards me. "Whatever! I knew this was to good to be true....." [© 2015 Gabby W. all rights reserved] [Cover credit to brianna lauren]


2. Chapter 1

Emily's P.O.V


"Em! It's almost time to go! Are you packed? Mrs Hemmings is waiting!" my mum called. I angrily grabbed my suitcases and my phone. I hate that my mum is sending me off to live with her friend and her family. I hardly even know them! I walked even slower hoping my mum will change her mind and take me with her to Aunt Kate's house. My mum poked her head when I was walking down the stairs. "I know what you are trying to do and it's not going to work because you are still going," she said and I rolled my eyes. I notice there was a woman and a boy next to her when I fully stepped down the stairs. 


"Hi, Emily. I'm Liz Hemmings, your mum's friend and this is my son Luke. He'll take your suitcases," she spoke up and looked over to the boy. He rolled his eyes and stepped over to me and grabbed my suitcases and stormed outside to their car. Liz sighed and walked over to me. "I know this is hard for you and trust me. Luke doesn't like it either but I think you are going to like living with me. I'll be like a second mother to you," she finished. I gave her a half smile.


"If you say so..." I replied slowly. I turned to my mother who was in the same spot where I saw her last when I was coming down stairs and walked over. She embraced me in a hug and I can hear a silent sob escape her lips. Tears ran down my eyes as I held her. "Bye, mum. I love you," I spoke after a long time hugging my mother. Who knows when I will see her again. 


"Bye, sweetie. Be good to Liz and do what she says. I will be back whenever I can. I love you too," she replied as we pulled apart. Tears were running down her face too, ruining her makeup but she didn't seem to care. That was the least of her worries. Luke came back in.


"Luke, where were you? It doesn't take you that long to put two suitcases in the car," Liz asks as he just stares at his phone. Luke looked up at her and then back to his phone. "Lucas! Are you ignoring me?" she asked again.


"No mother! I was only texting Michael. He's been asking about Emily all morning and I was on the phone with him outside," he answered.


"Can't you talk and text at some time?" she crossed her arms. "Besides. Why is Michael asking about Emily anyways?"


"Because I talked to him on the day you told me she was going to stay at our house and he calls dibs on dating her," he answered and I could feel a little blush come to my cheeks. Not many guys like me and knowing a guy calls dibs on me is pretty cool. I'm a really weird person.


"Well tell him that there are no calling 'dibs' on Emily," she said and turned to me. "Come on, Em. It's time to go. Bye Lilly! I wish you luck on getting a good job." Liz smiled and hugged my mum. 


"Love you, Emily! I promise to call and stay in contact with you while I'm gone," my mother called as I walked out the door and to Liz's car. I was about to go in the back before Liz stopped me.


"Why don't you sit in the front Emily. Luke can sit in the back," she suggested. I shook my head no.


"It's fine. I don't have to," I answered. 


"No! I insist! Luke, sit in the back please." she looked over to Luke who is already pissed. Luke pouted and walked over where I was and pushed me to the side. I slowly walked to the front and got in. Well, this is going great.


So this is kind of boring. Sorry. It will get better. Let me know what you think!
