39. Epilogue

Chapter Status: not edited


The sun shone brightly through my curtains which made it go onto my eyes. Instead of seeing darkness now, I saw a yellowy/orange colour. Today was the day. My sixteenth birthday. I never thought that I'd make it this far because of my past life but look at me now. It feels great.

My eyes peeled open as I couldn't sleep anymore because of the sun practically burning my eyes out. I turned over to the alarm clock on my left and read the time. 07:50. The boys bought me a 24 hour clock because they though that I should learn 24 hour time but I already knew.

Hearing the door crack open, I quickly turned back over and squeezed them shut. The sound of five pairs of feet entered the room and when one reached a certain point, the door creaked shut so slowly. It's like they didn't want to wake me, but I'm already awake anyways.

My bedroom suddenly went totally silent and I couldn't even hear the boys breathing. Then, a whole heap of weight came on top of me and a million shuts of 'Happy Birthday!' and 'Wake up' were distributed around the room.

I opened my eyes and there were five boys smiling at me. They looked so happy for my birthday. That hasn't happened in I don't know how many years. The only people how only really cared were Luke and Kelsey.

"Thank you so much guys!" I grinned and all six of us did a group hug.

"That's alright! Quick come downstairs!" Louis said ever so excitedly.

All five bodies pulled me up and pretty much out of my bed in an instant and then once I was standing on my own two feet, on the ground, Harry and Zayn legit dragged me down the stairs to the lounge room.

On the coffee table, there were about maybe ten or so presents there, waiting for me to open them. They were wrapped in colourful and patterned paper with massive bows, frilly ribbons and neon streamers. Every single gift on the table looked so so pretty- I couldn't thank the boys enough.

"Open my present first!" Louis shouted.

"No, open mine!" Harry shouted back.

"Mine's the best out of everyone's, so mine should be definitely opened first!" Niall interrupted.

"Hey, um, hi," I interrupted the three screaming boys. "It's my birthday so I get to choose whose present I open."

Louis', Harry's and Niall's sorries filled the room and I told then it was fine before selecting a gift off the coffee table. It was Louis present, believe it or not and I untied the sparkly white ribbon, then opening the light pink wrapping paper.

Inside contained five silver bracelets with different markings on each bracelet. They were so pretty and they fit right too. Louis had also got a matching love heart shaped locket and inside there was a photo of the boys and me. That photo was taken on Christmas Day, when we held a BBQ and the boys' girlfriends were there and so were the girls from Little Mix.

"Thanks so much Lou! I love it!" I said, hugging him.

Next, I opened Zayn's present. It was wrapped with a bright red tissue paper and it was about medium sized and it was pretty thick around the edges but kind of thin in the middle area. I had no idea what it was until I opened the mysterious present from Zayn.

The mysterious present was a photo frame. The edges were a pink colour, with grey and silver flowers just placed everywhere over the frame edges. It was a beautiful frame and there was a photograph of Zayn and I. It was the day when I went to meet his family and he wanted a photo so he could remember the day forever or something.

I met every single one of the boys' families, I even went to Ireland to meet Niall's family too. It was such an amazing experiences and I really enjoyed everybody's families. They made me feel welcomed and part of their family.

"Aww, Zayn! Thanks man. It's awesome!" I beamed while giving him a massive hug.

I picked up Harry's present next and his present was wrapped up in some dark blue paper that was covered in white glitter and it had white sparkly ribbon tied around it. The paper itself was gorgeous- I was dying to know what was inside.

Untying the pretty ribbon and taking off the dark blue paper, the present lay there in the middle of the paper. It was a white dress that was really pretty and it was flowy down the bottom. It was just a simple white and flowy dress but it was so pretty , that I sat there, on the floor, gaping at it.

"Oh my goodness Harry! It's so gorgeous. Thanks a million." I was speechless but said thank you, and of course have him a bone crushing hug.

Niall and Liam's gifts were the only ones left and so I closed my eyes and picked the first gift that my fingers made contact with and when I opened my eyes, it was Niall's present that was placed in the palm of my hand. The present was fairly small, like the shape of a jewellery box.

It was wrapped up in purple wrapping paper with birthday cakes with candles and the word Happy Birthday scattered around with the birthday cakes. An orange ribbon was neatly tied around the package and the ends of the ribbon were curled.

How cute.

I pulled off the orange ribbon first, then I carefully pulled off the wrapping paper- just like I did with all the other presents. The present was a small, blue box, smaller than the palm of my hand. I opened the box and it was a beautiful necklace.

A gold necklace chain with a small four leaf clover charm hanging off the golden chain. The charm was a deep green, like you'd expect to be and it was outlined with gold and the back of the clover was gold as well. It even had small writing engraved on the back which read:

To Cat, From Niall.

"Do you like it?" Niall asked me, sounding quite nervous as if he wasn't sure if I liked the present or not.

"Of course I do, Niall. Thank you for the present." I said, giving him a big hug.

Louis snuck off somewhere. I saw him head towards the front door but that could be anything in general. Maybe the mailman came? Who knows what it could've been.

Last, but not least, was Liam's present for me to open. It was not that tall but it was a rectangular shape. It confused me most, mostly because it was light and it seemed like you could just throw it around and it wouldn't break. The rectangle present was just simply wrapped in white tissue paper, quite thick I might add, with a simple little label with Happy Birthday Cat, From Liam.

Tearing open the white tissue paper, I realised that the light and rectangular present from Liam was a movie, a good one too. Actually, let me rephrase that; my favourite movie. My favourite movie of all time was White House Down.

"Ahh! This is my favourite movie. Thanks so much." I thanked Liam excitedly while giving him a hug.

"Mail's here!" Louis called from the front of the house. "And they're for Cat, Niall, Cat, Me, Harry, Liam and Zayn. Oh, we all got one!"

Louis handed me my two packages. One from Kelsey and one from Luke. Wow, they actually sent me a present. Heck, I'm actually surprised that Luke made an effort to remember my birthday, let alone send me a present practically half way around the world.

I had to go to the kitchen and get some scissors in order to open the package that Kelsey had sent me. It was a small express package the present inside wasn't even wrapped. Nothing has changed I guess. I reached inside the package and it was a small box. A small, white box with an O on the front. This could only mean one thing.

Pandora jewellery.

Could it be a necklace? Some diamond rings? Maybe some sparkly new earrings shaped as flowers. Or maybe they were just normal earrings. But then it could be a Pandora bracelet. No, the box is too small. I opened the small, white jewellery box and inside were a pair of grey heart earrings with sparkly gems inside.

"What is it Cat?" Liam asked me.

"Pandora earrings from Kelsey. Look! They're so pretty." I said to the boys, showing and passing around the small box that contained such precious jewellery.

"Woah, they are pretty." Zayn commented.

"Yeah they aren't they? Here, pass me Luke's present please."

Niall handed me Luke's present. His package was so small; smaller than Kelsey's package that she'd sent to me. Again, I needed the scissors to assist me to open this present. I reached inside the parcel and it seemed like Luke didn't wrap his present because I pulled out a $30 iTunes voucher and just $20 Australian Dollars.

"I'll have to thank these guys later because it's probably late over there," I started. "Oh I'll be back, I'm just putting my presents away. Thanks a lot guys."

I gathered my presents but they were too much to carry all in one massive trip up the gigantic staircase that leads to upstairs. I placed some presents back on the coffee table. Just as I was about to climb the stairs, Liam called out to me.

"Cat, wait! You forgot something!"

"Yeah I know! I left stuff there because it's too much to carry to upstairs!"

"No, like he means you forgot to open something!" Harry piped in.

"Oh, ok, well I'm coming back then." I said. I walked back into the lounge room and put my stuff down. From the corner of my eye, I saw another present wrapped up sitting right there in the middle of the coffee table.

"Who's this from?" I questioned nobody in particular.

"Read the label." Louis stated simply.

Picking up the present, I saw a label in the corner and with Harry's writing (I think) it read: To Cat, From Your Loving Bros. The paper was just exact same paper as Niall's, but without the orange curly ribbon.

I opened the present and it was another fucking box. Jesus, what was it with people giving me boxes? I opened the box anyways and inside contained a gold bracelet. It was just smooth and no patterns what so ever on it. Well, actually, so I thought. There was some writing engraved on the top. I had to squint to read what it said, but I did managed to read what it said in the end.

It read just a plain and simple Catarina on the top. I thought that's all it said but in the inside it had From Your Loving Brothers.

"Thank you so much guys!" I said, calling in a group hug.

At the start, I was dreading getting adopted by these five singing idiots, thinking that my life would be totally ruined and absolutely crashed because I'd be in the public eye pretty much 24/7.

But things turned out for the better. I got to know the guys more and I realised they weren't as bad as I judged. Although I wouldn't admit it then, I would definitely admit it 100% now that I know them.

Even though they weren't my real family, the treat my like I am and so do I, and I love them for that. Without them I wouldn't have been able to find my sister who I still keep in contact with now, and I would've spent my 16th birthday in an orphanage.

"Thank you guys for being there for me. I love you guys."

"We love you too Cat." They all said with glee.

This is my life now, these people are my family and I love it.

The End.


Okay guys this was the last chapter of Adopted ! No !! I'm so sad that I've had to say goodbye to Cat but this story has to come to an end.
