Checking out of the hotel, we arrived to my parents home late the next afternoon, pulling in front of the house I saw a blue Mercedes parked in the driveway. I knew my parents were there this time, and my entire body began to tremble. Edward opened the door for me once again, and grabbed my hand. Entwining my fingers into his tightly, we walked to the door and I pressed the doorbell.
It took a few moments before, what I recognized as my mothers voice, call “Just a minute!”. I inhaled sharply, any doubt that I had was gone now.
Letting go of Edwards hand I let the warmth travel up my legs to the top of my head. The door flung open, and my mother stood there staring at me. The look on her face was that of a child who had been caught doing something horribly wrong.
“Heaven! Darling!” She extended her arms out towards me, and I took a step back.
Her hands connected with the air around me.
“Mother?” I fought the tears away, “What is this? Is this your home?” Her hands went for the locket on her neck and began to toy with it.
“Why don’t you come in and have a seat.” She looked past me to Edward and I saw the question in her eyes, “And you are?” She asked him lifting one eyebrow.
“Don’t worry about who he is mother.” I spit out in a threatening tone. Pushing past her I stepped into the grand home.
“So… this is much better then what you left me with in Eatonville. I’m sure your new children just love it.” I said spitefully. She stepped closer to me, and I stepped back.
“Get away from me Mother. That’s what you’ve been trying to do all along right?”
Edward was still standing in the doorway, and my mother turned to him.
“Come in and have a seat. I’ll get some tea for us.” Her tone was nervous and scared. I stepped in front of her and stopped her.
“Where is my father?” I questioned, she avoided looking me directly in the eyes.
“He just ran to the store real quick, he should be back in a few moments.” I turned my heel and walked into the grand living room. A spiral staircase went to the second floor, and I could hear children’s laughter from above.
Walking around slowly, I looked at the framed pictures on the wall and the tables. None were of me, but there were hundreds of the little girl I had seen the day before, and what appeared to be her twin sister. Both the complete opposite of me and neither of them were freaks.
I felt Edwards presence as he entered the room and took a seat on the couch.
“Your mother is frantic right now; she doesn’t know what to say to you.” He said quietly.
“Well I can see why, I wouldn’t know what to say to the daughter I abandoned either.” He did not respond to me, and moments later my mother walked in. She sat a cup of tea in front of Edward, and offered one to me. I shook my head.
She took a seat on the chair in front of Edward, before she had a chance to speak I turned to her sharply,
“What is this mother? Was that last thousand dollars you gave me a farewell gift? An I’m never coming back to you again, here is some money? You pay my credit card bills, and give me a house to live in. Do you think that is all I need?” She looked stunned, and didn’t say anything.
One of the twins came running down the stairs, and clung to my mothers arm.
“Mommy, that’s the girl that was here yesterday.” I felt my stomach turn as the beautiful little one called my mother, mommy. I shot daggers at my mother, and the little girl ran back up the stairs.
“Yes, mommy. I’m the girl that was here yesterday. I’m the girl who had to fly across the country to find her parents living another life. That’s me.” I saw the tears welling in my mothers eyes.
“Heaven,” She began.
“Just SHUT UP!” I screamed, less than a second after the words had left my mouth, the front door opened, and my father walked in. He stopped abruptly when he saw me.
“Yes, that’s my name, Timothy. I figure since you have found yourselves a new little family, I no longer need to call you mother and father right?” I looked at my mother and the tears were streaking down her cheeks. My father started towards me,
“Darling you are taking this the wrong way.” I stepped towards him quickly.
“Taking this the wrong way? You have two new daughters, and I’ve been living on my own for months! While you and mother are living in Pleasantville way over here in New York. I don’t think I’m taking anything the wrong way!” He stepped back away from me.
“Take it easy Heaven.” He put his arms out in front of him as if he was scared of me.
“TAKE IT EASY!” I screamed, “You left me! My own parents! You were so afraid of your freakish daughter, right? Well you created me didn’t you father? You made me the freak I am today.”
“Your mother couldn’t take the stress any longer Heaven, you have to understand. It’s hard to relocate every few months; it’s hard to deal with how… different you are.”
My mother stood up.
“How dare you blame this all on me Tim! You took as much part of it as I did.”
“You both are to blame! I am your own flesh and blood, how could you do this to me?” I was speaking quietly and my entire body was trembling. The rage built within me; Edward stood up quickly and came to my side.
“Calm down Heaven.” He said to me, I heard a music box to my left begin to rattle, and my father looked at it with wide eyes.
“Now Heaven, that is not necessary.” He tried to sound stern, but I could hear his voice trembling. I closed my eyes and took a deep breath, trying to calm my raging emotions.
The music box fell to the floor and shattered, my mother let out a small yelp. I heard more things beginning to fall from the table to my right, and I tried to stop it. It was as if my mind had no control left. I heard my mothers sobs and pleads,
“Don’t do this Heaven, please stop.” I felt the vibrations of arms wrapping around me, and Edwards cool breath on my ear.
“I’m here Heaven, don’t do this. Walk away.” I breathed deeply again, and I heard more things crashing off of the shelves around me.
I didn’t know what was going on or how to stop it, I had no concentration or control left in me. I pulled away from Edward and put my face into my mothers.
“I hate you. I hate you both. Don’t ever come back to me; don’t ever come to look for me. I am out of your life forever. One day you will regret this, one day when you are old and you have no one, you will know I am out there somewhere living happily, while you sit here remembering the daughter that you abandoned.” I heard more things crashing around me,
“GET OUT OF MY HOUSE!” my mother screamed, “GET OUT NOW!” I shoved past her hard, and she fell to the floor.
Running as quickly as I could out of the door, I got to the car and threw myself in. Closing my eyes, I screamed. I screamed as loudly as I could, trying to let the rage out of me. I don’t know how long I was screaming, and I don’t know when Edward returned to the car. I felt it begin to move, and I tried to breathe deeply. I sobbed, I screamed, I cried. I let out every emotion I had been holding in me for so long.
When I opened my eyes everything was a blur once again. I looked over at Edward and I saw his lips moving but I couldn’t hear what he was saying. I felt my mind slipping in and out of consciousness, and I felt a sharp pain in my chest. As if my heart had been torn out.
It felt as if I was dying, my head was spinning, and I knew I was going to fall unconscious. I surrendered to it happily, hoping that all of my pain and sorrow would go away. Hoping that maybe I wouldn’t come back, and I would live happily forever in the place that I had been so cruelly named after.
