My New Family Problems, that turned my World Upside Down

Chapter 15

"Something happened last night and now my family wants me to be with Zane, but I really don't want to and I really despise him, but I couldn't let the other option happen. Anyway I kind of lied and said that I had a boyfriend and that this whole thing would NOT break me and my boyfriend up and I hate lieing so when they asked who...I....I paniced and your name came into my mind so I said it and no one believed me so thats why I came and did this. I'm sorry really I am. I just...I paniced." He hugged me tightly and I realized I had been shaking. Slowly my body became still.

"Well you're not panicing now."

I smiled up at him. "All thanks to you."

"Yeah, well you're welcome. Back to the problem at hand. I honestly don't like pretending to be your boyfriend." He said seriously and my smile slipped from my face. I had been afraid this would happen. "I want to be your boyfriend for real."


"Really?" I asked and he nodded, smiling. I smiled back at him to.

~~~~~~~ Later on in the school day/ at Lunch ~~~~~~~

"So you've never had a boyfriend?"

"Not exactly. I mean I sort of 'dated' this guy a few years ago, but then he moved." I told Kyle, making quotations around dated. "Yeah we only 'dated' for about a week." I continued, still making quotations around dated. Kyle laughed. "So what about you? How many girlfriends have you had?"

"About five."

"Oh. Nice." I said and looked away from Kyle. We were sitting outside under the huge pine tree near the food court. I saw Massie walking with Gwen and Alicia and called them over. "Hey Massie, Gwen. Alicia." I said with a smiled. They all smiled back at me.

"So it's true?" Alicia asked, gesturing to Kyle and my entwined fingers.


"YAY!!!!!!" Gwen screamed. "Ember has an actually boyfriend now!!!!!!"

I smiled apoligeticly at Kyle and laughed along with everyone else while Gwen jumped up and down. "Actually thats what I wanted to talk to you guys about. Hey Massie do you still have that crush on Zane?" Massie didn't reply

"I have no interest in him." She looked down at me in a bored way and left.

"Oooookaaaay then." Kyle mumbled causing Alicia and Gwen to laugh.

"We like you." Alicia told him.

"Yeah you made Ember happy and you got her to sing more. So yes we like you, but not in the lovey way. That's Ember's job." Gwen agreed and winked at me before they walked away.

"Gewnny, Gwenny, Gwenny. You gotta love her."

"Yeah she's pretty nice and so is Alicia. But you're beautiful."

"Awww. You're sweet." I said and kissed his cheek.

"Okay if you two are going to be all lovey-dovey. I think we should leave." Kyle's friend Joe said.

"Sorry." Kyle mumbled, but he didn't look sorry. I smiled and looked around us. This was turning out to be a great day.


I thought to soon... My mind informed me as I quietly sat in my room later that evening. My mother had taken my phone away so I told her that I wouldn't talk to her until she gave it back.

Just then a thought came to me, Jamison couldn't have adopted me if my father didn't give up his rights. I looked it up online and found it true. Jamison couldn't adopt me because my parents shared custity with me. The only was was for my daddy to sign a paper saying that he gives up his rights on me. Quickly I printed the papers out and bursted out of my room, rushing down the stairs only to run straight into Zane. The force knocked me back onto the stairs steps.

"Slow down darlin'." He said in that fake accent.

"Don't call me darlin'!" I snapped and rushed past him.

I found Mother in the dinning room again with Jamison, Mr. Oakes, and both the Grandfathers.

I slammed the papers on the table near Jamison and my Mother. I looked at Jamison when I spoke since I was being childish and not talking to my Mother. "It's. Not. Possible." I stated the words through clenched teeth. Every eyes were on my angry face. My eyes were held on my "parents" faces as She held up a paper showing that my daddy had signed and another one showing that I was legally Jamison's. I dropped the papers and stepped back.

"No...he couldn't have..." Tears formed in my eyes. Did daddy not want me anymore?

"Emberlee...." Came Zane's worried voice and ass he stepped closer I snapped.

"You come closer and I will find a knife and stab your arm." I didn't mean it and from the way it came out shakily everyone else could tell I didn't mean it either, but still. It's the thought that counts right? I ran from the room right past Zane and outside.

I was about to do something everyone wouldn't approve of. Not caring to be quiet I moved the junk away from the porch's concrete railing and took my usual path up the my window. This time I made sure there was no unwanted boxes before I climbed through. I locked my bed room door and grabbed an old book bag of mine. I then changed into some sliver, white and black basket ball shorts and a gray tank top, throwing some gray sweat pants and a jacket into my bag.

Thump-thump-thump went my heart against my chest as I heard someone come up the stairs only then did I remember that I was suposed to be outside. Rolling my eyes at my stupitity, I climbed back out my window and down to the railing. Softly I walked to the kitchen window and climbed inside, but I slipped on the wet surface and brought down several glass cups as I fell. They smahed around me as I lay on the floor, one piece of glass wedged into my left calf. STUPID!!!!! I yelled at my self before I heard all three doors to the kitchen open. Quickly I stashed my bag in a cabinet before everyone walked around the counter and saw blood sliding down my leg and pooling around my foot.

My mother screams mixed with Sarah and Zarah's as Zane stepped closer to grab my leg. I kicked him and found that was a bad idea since the glass somehow wedged it's self deeper in and father down. I hissed in pain, taking deep calming breaths as my mother screamed more and more. I felt someone's arms wrap around my waist to hold me still and instantly I knew it was Braylon. I looked up at him and he put his forehead to the side of mine to whisper in my ear that it was going to be okay. I looked back at the chunk of normally clear glass and it was now all covered in my blood. It hurt so bad. I looked at my mother who was still screaming with tears streaming down her face and Jamison was talking to a 911 operator. Zane sat in front of me looking slighted ticked off, but worried at the same time.

I looked back at Braylon as I gripped the bloody thing wedge in my leg. I yanked on it just as Mr. Oakes shouted "NOOOO!". I yelped in pain as the glass fell to the floor. The blood doubled and I felt it running through my hands. My breathing came out in shallow gasps and my body was shaking.

"DON'T JUST SIT THERE ZANE!!!!! GRAB SOME TOWELS AND APPLY PRESSURE!!!!!!" Braylon yelled and for once Zane listened to him. I brought my shaking hand up to put on Braylon's. He seemed like the only calm person in this room.

I smiled a pained smile at him as he gripped my hand in his. "And these were my favorite shorts." I mumbled shakily, trying to lighten the mood.

"I have a pair just like them that you can have if the blood won't come out of these ones."

"And if the blood does come out?" He smiled at me and spoke in a whisper.

"I'll give them to you anyway?"

"Promise? I asked as the blackness started to cloud my vision.

He whispered to me again. "I promised." The blackness was closing in faster and I continued to shake in Braylon's arms.

"No, no, no, no. Come one Emmy stay with me. No, you can't go to sleep." Braylon shook me gently.

"But I'm so tired Bray and it hurts so bad." I closed my eyes only to have Braylon shake me more. He continued to do that everytime I closed my eyes.

A/N: So what do you think about Emberlee's new boyfriend? Or how about her getting hurt again?
