*For all of you wondering how Cara looks like.*
Cara's POV
Cameron just walked through the door with a confused expression on his face, staring at me. I just smiled really big and when he didn't get the hint I said, "I know your adopting me already because you left the forms here". He smiled really big and sat next to me while asking," Do you want me to adopt you?" I whipped my head up and stared at him with wide eyes. "Hmmmm, let me see. I just found out that my parents tried to burn me down with our house, I had a panic attack, the last thing I remember is waking up in this hospital...shall I go on? Oh wait, what do you think my answer is?" I rudely stated in a sarcastic voice. He looked me dead in the eye and whispered while smiling," I'll take that as a yes. Well then let's sign you out of this dull hospital, daughter." I jumped up and smiled at him while grabbing his hand. After checking me out and signing some papers, we headed out the hospital which I was really jumpy about. I've always hated it in there because I spent most of my childhood there. I guess we reached his car because I heard a door squeak open. Man I need to stop gazing off in my thoughts. When I looked up, my jaw would probably be touching the floor if this was a cartoon with my eyes bulging out. He had a black Cadillac with tinted windows in the back. "What's wrong? Aren't you gonna get in?" Cameron asked me with a worried expression. "Your car, is awesome!" I shouted catching glares from around the parking lot. He started to laugh and stopped when I glared at him while hopping in. "If only you knew..." He mumbled to himself but I still heard every part of that sentence. "If only I knew what?" I asked in my sassy voice. "Oh uh, nothing. Anyways let's go shopping and buy you some things you will need!" Cameron said rushingly like he was hiding something. "Okay?" I said to myself while turning my head to the window. I didn't recognize where we were driving but it was quiet. A long time passed but we still weren't there as I got a little sleepy. As much as I fought the urge to fall asleep, eventually I did.

Cameron's POV
On my way to the mall, I noticed Cara looked like she was tired and was leaning against the window. I decided to turn the car around and just pick up some stuff for dinner with the guys today instead. When I looked in the rear view mirror, I saw her peacefully sleeping and she looked just like the first time I saw here. I smiled to myself at the thought of how much I've changed both our lives in a good way. I guess you can say that after the whole Rachel thing, my life hasn't been as secure or stable. I remembered that Cara needed something to wear tonight so I parked at Guess and hurried inside. The first thing I did was run to the girls section and texted Andrea for help. After a whole argument with her 'fashion statements' I finally found something. I bought her army-camo patterned skinny jeans, black combat lace up shoes, and a black short-sleeved shirt that said 'GUESS' in fake pearl beads. I got in the car after paying and started to drive to the closest glasses store. Why does shopping have to be so difficult ugh. I made a quick trip in and bought us matching black RayBan sunglasses. While I was driving home, I couldn't help but wonder how she was gonna react to all the boys because she doesn't like socializing. Now I was anxious to find out. As I pulled up into our parking lot, I noticed everyone was already here. Why does this happen al, the time?! I pulled out my phone and texted them ahead of time to be quiet because Cara was still sleeping. When I walked in carrying her and everyone was quiet, all eyes faced us as I carried her upstairs. I gently placed her down on her new bed and kissed her forehead. It felt like she was always my daughter. I never would of expected myself in this position even months ago. "I love you Cara." I softly said so she doesn't wake up. As I walked out, I heard her mumble, " I love you dad." Now the feeling of being a dad has kicked in. Instead of going out with all the guys, I told them that they can eat dinner without us and stay the night because it was already late. Then I went straight to my room and jumped on my bed. Her words still lingered at the back of my head repeating themselves.
