A life of Payne
This isn't happening. It can't be real.
Please let this be a dream.
"What's going to happen to me?" I asked the annoyingly nice police lady.
"Well it's decided that you can't live with the Dobbs family anymore since they never came to the police when this all started. They may have raised you as their own Katie but they still broke the law by not handing you over to us."
"What are you saying? That I have to go live with people I've only just met?"
"Well kind of." The police officer said very quiet.
I practically felt my heart sink further in to my chest.
"What do you mean?"
"Since what your biological parents did was also illegal it's been decided that you'll be living with your brother Liam." The officer said slowly waiting for my reaction. I think everyone expected me to blow up and start yelling and just go crazy, but all I could manage to do was cry.
I cried into Ashley's shoulder like there was no tomorrow.
I had to leave my family I grew up with. I had to leave my best friend. I had to leave the comfort of my small but popular life I had made or myself. I had to leave New Zealand. I had to leave...
After what felt like hours of crying, Liam came and sat on the other side of me on the couch. He tried to comfort me by rubbing my back softly but when I finally had the courage to look up at him, he had a very large and warm smile on his face.
What the hell?
I harshly stood up and moved away from him. He looked so happy about this whole thing almost like he couldn't see the pain it was causing me.
"Do I at least get to spend Christmas and my birthday with my family in New Zealand?" I croaked out not daring to look at anyone but the police officer. I didn't want to look at those monsters that had come and ruined my life.
"It was up to the Payne family since you are now part of that family starting today." She said trying not to put any emotion in her voice since she was trying to be professional. After all this is her job.
I turned to look at Karen, Geoff and Liam while the police officer began talking again.
"Sadly they have said no to the idea and want you to start your packing as soon as possible."
And with that the police officer left. Leaving me to deal with this hell.
I felt numb.
They weren't even going to let me have one last good memory with my family that I love.
I just stood there not really sure what to do. Liam took a step towards me ready to talk but before he had the chance I walked past him making sure to bump my shoulder with his. Even though I was way shorter than him I put as much effort in to it as I could, he was so tall. How the hell could I be related to him.
I made my way towards my room at the end of the hall. It was exactly as I had left it before I was shoved in to that hotel.
As soon as I stepped in to the room I noticed in the corner of my room was about four huge and brand new leopard print suitcases. Usually I would be so happy because they were so cute and I love leopard print but all I could do after seeing those was walk over to my bed and put my head in my hands.
I cried and cried to myself but no matter how much I cried the pain never seemed to go away.
Katie bumped her shoulder against mine as she left the room. Even though she is quiet short compared to me she made sure to do it has harsh as she could. Guess she's mad.
Within a minute of her walking away to her room, her sobs could be heard throughout the whole house.
Her younger sisters that have been really quiet for this whole thing, started crying to once they came to terms with the fact that they were really losing their big sister but Katie can't stay here no matter how much it hurts her to leave, she doesn't belong here.
Katie liked to be popular. She had to have people's eyes on her, she liked to feel loved. Her parents didn't like the way she put so much effort in to staying popular, she had eye candy by her side all the time without actually dating anyone. It was almost as if her subconscious had trained her for a life of fame so why should she waste her life away in such a small town. She was meant to be a Payne.
After awhile Ashley decided to go home and Erin and Steve took Katie's sisters out so we could talk to Katie without any distractions.
I wanted to try talk to her first.
As I walked towards her bedroom I noticed that her cries had died down to very light sniffles that I could only just hear through the door.
I knocked on the door and waited patiently for her to say come in or open the door for me but neither came so I carefully and slowly opened the door to find her curled up in a ball on her bed. I felt so bad, she looked so broken and sad.
I very slowly walked over to her because I wasn't even sure if she had notice me in the room yet.
I leant down next to the bed so I wasn't towering over her.
"Katie?" I whispered to her causing her to jump out of fright and move away from me.
Great she hates me.
"Why?" She managed to croak out. Her voice was so raspy and cracked even though she only said one word.
"Why what?" I said quietly to her not wanting to make her jump again, considering how quiet it was in here right now I didn't want to raise my voice because it would have been to over-powering.
"Why are you doing this to me? I want my old family back. I d-don't even get to live with Karen and Geoff. I have to live with you. What's the point?" She sniffled once she had finished whispering to me.
No matter how happy I was that she was now a Payne after all these years, I had to make sure it seemed like I felt her pain.
"Sweetie I'm really sorry that we hurt you by doing this but we are just doing what's best for you. You don't belong in that family or in this town and you know that, I know you do." I spoke softly to her.
When she didn't reply I knew she understood me.
I took this time to look around her small room and noticed she had pulled all her clothes out of her closet and thrown them against the wall. Most likely out of anger.
The pile wasn't very big compared to the size of Sophia's closet back home, or mine for that matter.
I walked over to the corner where her new suitcases my- I mean our parents had brought her.
I picked one up easily and laid it next to her on the bed making sure not to bump her with it.
She managed to sit herself up on the edge of the bed but still didn't say anything.
I kneeled in front of her and tilted her chin up so she was looking at me.
"You may think were being cruel doing this to you but I promise you that I already love you and that will continue to grow everyday. I'm so happy to be your big brother and will protect you from what we have coming. When one door closes, another one opens Katie and I swear to you that I will walk through that door with you." And with that I kissed her on forehead and gave her a huge hug.
This was the first time all day she's listened to what I had to say and the first time all day that she hasn't been pushing me away. Even after everything that happened today she still accepted my hug which gave me hope for the relationship we could have as brother and sister in the future.
I'm never giving up on Katie, ever. I promised her.
Ok guys so last night Shane (My boyfriend) stayed the night at me house and when he went on my laptop he saw my fanfic on one of the tabs and decided to read it. Well he got all cut up that I choose to use my ex-boyfriends name (Vinny) in the story but not his. I only used my exes name instead of his because I plan to turn Vinny into a dick later in the story.
My point is that I really don't know how to put him in the story but he really wants to be in it.
