My New Family Problems, that turned my World Upside Down 

Chapter 10

~~~~~~1 month and 2 weeks later~~~~~~~

Mother and my new step-father came back about two weeks ago. They seemed so happy and excited to be back home, but for my mother... Well I just knew her better than that. She was just happy that he, his kids and Braylon were happy. Me? Well she didn't really care. She may have acted like it but she didn't care. It wasn't always like this though. She actually used to care about me. I layed back on my bed remembering the day she stopped caring...

~~~~~~~Flashback of 3 years ago (Emberlee would be 12)~~~~~~~

"Mommy?" I called as I searched the house for her. "Mommy?"

I looked everywhere! Calling her name again and again. She never answered. I walked outside and found her under the big oak tree where she and daddy used to sit when they were together. She was crying. "Mommy?"

"You're still here?!"

"Yes mommy. Why wouldn't I be?" I was confused.

"Go live with your dad and that-that girl! You want to! I heard you tell your dad you'd love to stay with them!!!" Her tears were coming faster as she stood up.

"Mommy no, that was just for a weekend. Daddy wants me to meet Susan." Looking up at her from where I was standing right in front of her I could see just how puffy her face was, how red her eyes were and it made me want to cry.

"She's a whore and she took your father from us!!"

"Mommy, she never took daddy from us and daddy is still with me and he's even said he'd help you if you'd just let him."

"Like that will happen. If he wanted to help he wouldn't have left!" She cried.

"Mommy please stop crying!" I begged as I hugged her.

She pushed me away and I fell to the ground as she wiped her tears and walked away leaving me there. Once she got to the back door she turned to look at me. "Everyone was right, you're his daughter more than you are mine." Then she went inside leaving me there crying alone on the ground.

~~~~~~~End of flash back~~~~~~~

She never actually said that she stopped caring, but her actions did. I wished that she'd care. That was my biggest secret that I hide....I wished my mom would care about me.

Knock, knock came from the door. "Come on in." I called.

"You ready to go Emmy?"

"Uh sure."

Braylon drove me to the hospital, under Jamison's orders, so that I could get my cast off. Once it was done the nurses had me walk around a little. Do some therapy I guess you could call it. Then we went home.

"Just in time!" My mother screeched happily. "We're having a family discussion in the dinning room." Then she turned on her heel calling over her shoulder. "That means you to Braylon."

I shared a look with Bray before he helped me walk into the dinning room. My ankle was still a little sore and the doctor told me that I should walk but also take it easy. Which with Braylon around and knowing that the doctor wanted me to take it easy well lets just say I wont be doing a lot of walking anymore than I'll have to.

"Take a seat kids." My mother said nervously. "We'll h-have to tell Robin later s-since he umm isn't here." She stuttered. Wait she never stuttered. "Okay umm I'm not sure h-how you guys are going to react to this...."She trailed off looking at us all, but her eyes rested mostly on me and Jamison.

"Honey whatever it is it will all be fine. You have the full support of your family. Right guys?"

"Of course." The twins said. Braylon nodded and my mother looked at me lastly.

I closed my eyes, took a deep breath then let it go and opened my eyes once again. "Mother what is it? Your loved ones will help you get through it. Just tell us."

She nodded. "I....I'm pregnant."

Everyone in the room was quiet. Then Jamison jumped up and hugged her. "Oh honey you sure?"

She nodded and he smiled before kissing her excitedly.

"Congrats." Sarah, Zarah and Braylon said at the same time, but me? I stood frozen in place by Braylon's side. My mother was pregnant. I didn't know what to think. Everyone took turns giving her a hug except me. I back up and slipped out of the room threw the kitchen and into the closet. Only that was a mistake cause I remembered the last time I was in here with a problem. My daddy helped me through it and right now I needed someone to talk to. I needed my daddy, but he doesnt want to talk to me. That got me crying.

"Where did she go?" I heard Jamison say from the other room.

"Sissy?" The girls called out.

"Emberlee Nicole Loxley!" I heard my mother cry. There were tears in her voice and I couldn't help but wonder why she really stopped caring about me. Why she basicly left me to take care of myself at the age of 12. The silent tears ran faster as they called out my name. Their voices getting muffled as they walked farther away.

Once I couldn't hear them anymore I decided that it was safe to come out. So I wiped my tears and made my way to the music room. I looked around and remembered when mom made me sing, when daddy came to watch me. Fresh tears started up as a song popped in my head. I made my way over to the guitar and made sure it was tuned before I sang 'Cold as you' by Taylor Swift. 

You have a way of coming easily to me

And when you take, you take the very best of me

So I start a fight cause I need to feel something

And you do what you want cause I'm not what you wanted


Oh what a shame, what a rainy ending given to a perfect day

Just walk away, no use defending words that you will never say

And now that I'm sitting here thinking it through

I've never been anywhere cold as you

You put up walls and paint them all a shade of gray

And I stood there loving you and wished them all away

And you come away with a great little story

Of a mess of a dreamer with the nerve to adore you

[Repeat Chorus]

You never did give a damn thing honey but I cried, cried for you

And I know you wouldn't have told nobody if I died, died for you

(Died for you)

Oh what a shame, what a rainy ending given to a perfect day

Every smile you fake is so condescending

Counting all the scars you made

And now that I'm sitting here thinking it through

I've never been anywhere cold as you

The song was about 4 minutes long. And by the time I was done singing the tears were spilling over and sobs too over my body. Questions popped into my mind like: Why did this have to happen?, Why did they have to split?, Why did mother have to remarrie?, Why did me and Massie have to fight all the time this year?, Why does my mother not care about me?, Just why?

A/N: Well here another chapter.
