1.11 The Unexpected

This chapter is Rated R (Strong language)

Author’s note:  Now that we finally get to meet Madeline’s mother, I finally added a family tree.  Click HERE to view. 🙂  Please keep in mind that I haven’t added the pictures yet, but I will tomorrow.  I’m too lazy to add them now. ROFL.

“I’m not interested in whatever your selling, sorry.” My mother waved a hand at me and started to shut the door in my face.  I stepped forward quickly, holding the door open with my foot.

“I’m not selling anything.  I’m Madeline.”  I said quickly.  “Drake.”

“Excuse me?” My mother said softly, her green eyes widening, her face extremely pale.

“Mom, who is this?” My sister asked puzzled, her brow furrowed as she stared at me like I had grown a second head.  I stared back at my half-sister.  She was the spitting image of my mother at a young age, except her eyes were a deep blue color that must have been passed down from her paternal side of the family.  Welcome to the Twilight Zone, I thought my head spinning.

My mother was silent, her mouth agape, she looked like she wanted to run and hide.  I could say the feeling was mutual.  “Nothing Melody.  Go check on your brother would you?” She said not taking her eyes off my face for a second.  Melody looked back and forth between us like she knew there was more to the story.

Screenshot-3

Brother?  My mind spun like a top, and my vision dimmed making me feel dizzy.  I had a half-brother, and a sister?  Never in a million years did I expect my mother to have anymore children.  I had assumed in her dropping me off with her mother at one year of age, that she wasn’t the motherly type.  How wrong I was?  What else was I wrong about?

Screenshot-4

My mother laughed suddenly and narrowed her eyes at me.  “Oh, now I know who you are, Madeline, our new cleaning lady.  Why didn’t you say so?”  Her green eyes met mine in an unspoken challenge.

My heart sunk like the Heart of the Ocean tossed off the balcony of the Titanic.  The cleaning lady?  This reunion wasn’t going the way I had planned it, that much was for sure.

Melody yawned looking bored, having lost all interest in me once she knew I was the hired help.  I watched her turn around and walk back inside the spacious foyer, her pretty dress swishing around her hips as she walked.  What a different life we lived, I couldn’t help but feeling a twinge of envy over my sister.

“The help!” I exclaimed glaring at my mother once the door shut. “Seriously?” Anger was a welcome feeling, it chased away the sadness caused by my mothers complete lack of interest in me.  Once again, I was abandoned by her.

“Why are you here?” Melissa hissed at me looking mad enough to shoot bullets out of her eyes.

“Good question.” I spat.  “I came because I thought you needed my help.  Obviously I was wrong.” I said bitterly, feeling the tears building behind my eyelids threatening to spill over my cheeks.

“Would you keep your voice down?” Melissa hissed at me, grabbing my arm and tugging me away from the door.

Wouldn’t want your perfect children to hear us, I thought bitterly feeling like I could cry.  Why was she so quick to abandon me, but so willing to keep her other children? 

Screenshot-7

I followed her down the driveway.  She pushed open the wooden gate leading us to a bench nestled amongst the roses.  Smelling the roses filled me with a sense of nostalgia and made me miss home.  I wonder if Melissa got her gardening skills from her mother, or if they were just for show.

Screenshot-8

She sat down and stared ahead, her arms crossed over her chest in a defensive manner.  I sat beside her on the bench.

“Is it money you want?” Melissa snapped at me, taking me completely off guard.

“Money?” I yelled.  “You think this is about money?”

“What else would it be about?  You saw I was well off and now you want a piece.” She stared ahead, her lack of interest in me apparent.

“I don’t need your fucking money.” I leaned forward resting my elbows on my knees trying my best not to cry.  “I’m here because I wanted to get to know my mother, I must be a fucking idiot, its obvious that you don’t give a shit about me, or even care about knowing a thing about me.  I just want to know why…”

“Why what?  You want to know why I gave you up?  You want to hear the entire story to make yourself feel better, there isn’t much to tell.” Melissa said stonily.

Screenshot-9

“Why did you give me up?” I asked the question I’ve been dying to ask since I first learned about my mother.  “And don’t tell me you weren’t ready to be a mother.  How old is Melody?  Eighteen?  You must have been pregnant with her when you dropped me off with your mother.  So why then?  What was so horrible about me that you had to give me up, but could raise Melody?” I couldn’t help it, I began to cry, and I hated myself for it.

“You were better off.” Melissa said quietly, her voice barely that of a whisper.  “Your father..” She started to stay.

“What about my father?  You know who he is?”

“I don’t want to talk about your father….its complicated.  And none of your business.”

“The hell it isn’t my business!” I yelled.  “I have a right to know who my father is.”

“How much?” Melissa said, her expression flat and unreadable.

“Excuse me?” I asked shifting on the uncomfortable bench.

“How much will it cost for you to go away and get the hell out of my life.  I’m a different person then I was back then.  You have no right to be here.  I’m married, and I have two children, and your going to ruin everything for me.  I left you with my mother who I knew would raise you well, Isn’t that good enough for you?  I should have just dropped you off at the shelter and never looked back.  I should have known you would try to find me some day.  That you would try to ruin everything for me!”

My head swam from the hurt her words caused, and I felt my face pale considerably.  Of all the scenarios I had imagined in my head about my mother, in every single one, I had never imagined her to be so cruel and heartless.

Screenshot-10

Jumping up from the bench I whirled to face her.  I wanted to look into her eyes and see her expression, to make her hurt as much as I was hurting.

“You don’t deserve to be a mother.” I spat like my words were poison.  “Your mother, my grandmother, was ten times the mother that you could ever hope to be.  She worked two jobs to support me, and gave up so much to make sure I was well cared for, that I could never want for a thing!  She loved you.  She never gave up searching for you, because that’s what a mother does.”

“And your point is…?” Melissa just looked annoyed.  It was clear she just didn’t give a shit about anyone but herself, she only cared about protecting her own interests, and making sure her cushy well off suburban life remained intact.

Screenshot-11Screenshot-12

“Does your husband know that you used to be a whore?” I spat, feeling my green eyes flash.

Melissa shifted uncomfortably on the bench, her face creasing with a frown.  Ahhh, I thought triumphantly.  Finally something that rattles her cage.

“That was a long time ago.” She said quietly, looking up to meet my eyes boldly.  “And you have no right bringing that up.  Now if that is all, its time for you to leave, or I’m going to call the cops, and have you arrested for trespassing.”

“You’re a bitch.” I said, shaking my head sadly.  “I don’t know why I even bothered looking for you.  I should have just assumed you were dead and called it good.  I can’t believe that you were born to someone as caring and decent as your mother.” I turned around to leave, before I did something I would regret.

“And I should have gotten an abortion.” Melissa laughed from the bench.

I paused, my hands tightening into fists, my nails digging painfully into my palms.  For a minute I could clearly imagine myself punching her in the face.  Then I realized my grandmother raised me better than that, and I quickly walked away before she could see my tears fall.

Screenshot-13

As Madeline stormed away, she didn’t notice a shocked Melody step away from the window overhearing the entire exchange between the two…

Screenshot-2Screenshot

I ran across the grass as fast as my legs could carry me, the tears streaming down my face.  All I could think about was Mika.  If I could just get to the car without breaking down Mika would be there to pick up the pieces, and be there to put me back together again.

I couldn’t believe my mother, if I could even call her that.  A mother was someone who made you chicken noodle soup when you were sick, and loved you more than life itself, who would do anything just to see you smile.  Do anything to protect you, to keep you safe.  This woman was none of those things….she was cold, and cruel, she was nothing like me.  Riley was right.  This was a mistake.  I should have listened to him!

Screenshot-3Screenshot-4

“Wait!” I heard a voice call from behind me.  I whirled around to see Melody running towards me.

“Nothing to see here, I’m just the maid.” I laughed bitterly.

Screenshot-5

“Oh save it.  I heard everything.” Melody said with a slight smirk on her pink slicked lips.

I frowned wearily.  “Come to rub it in a little?” I asked pinching the bridge of my nose to stem away the headache that was beginning to build behind my eyes.  Tension headaches were the worst!

Screenshot-6Screenshot-7

“Is it true?” Melody asked.  “You’re really my sister?”

“Well half actually.” I admitted, seeing no reason to lie, after the way I had been treated by my own mother, I felt no inclination to protect her secrets.

“Wow.” Melody said simply, her eyes widened in shock.  “How come you didn’t take the money?”

“I could give a shit less about your families money.” I said, slightly insulted.  What was it with this family and money?

“She’s not happy you know.” Melody smirked.  “Her and my dad, they fight all the time.  It’s the drugs.  I think she’s using again.”

“I really don’t care anymore.” I said honestly.  It was the truth, I stopped caring about my mother the minute she told me she wished she would have aborted me.  “Your mother wants nothing to do with me, so why should I care?  She abandoned me, you heard.” I started to turn away, eager to get away from this crazy family and all its drama.

Screenshot-8

Without another word I spun around, eager to get back to Mika, and get away from my mother’s house of hell.  I just wanted to go home and forget this day, to pretend my mother didn’t exist.  Maybe I could trick myself into pretending she died a long time ago, and pretend the mother in my head loved me enough to make sure I was cared for by the only person she trusted in life.

“She’s not all that bad you know.” Melody called out.  “She’s made some mistakes, but she’s a good person deep down…”

“How great for you and your brother.” I said frostily walking away.  I just didn’t care…Not anymore. 

Screenshot-9

“Oh Madeline, Are you ok?” Mika breathed, reaching out to wipe away a tear from my cheek, as I threw myself into the passenger seat sobbing.

“No.” I choked out.  “Just drive ok.  Get me out of here.”

I closed my eyes and lay back against the headrest, as Mika pulled away from the curb.

Screenshot-10

“Do you want to talk about it?” Mika asked glancing at me as we headed back towards town.

“There is nothing to tell.  Absolutely nothing.” I laughed, loudly, and started hiccupping.  Mika looked at me strangely, I couldn’t blame him, I probably looked insane, like I had lost my mind.  “Oh one thing though, I have a half-brother and sister.” I laughed again.  You’re losing it Madeline, big time.

Mika raised an eyebrow.  “Is that good?”

“I don’t want to talk about it.” I sighed, exhaustion setting in.

Screenshot-11Screenshot-12

With a screech of the tires, and a crank of the wheel Mika pulled into the parking lot at the park and stopped the car.

“What are you doing?” I asked rubbing my tired eyes.  “I’m not up for a picnic.”

“Normally I’d give you your space-I’m not a pushy guy, but I can see that you’re hurting, and I can’t take seeing you like this.”

Mika opened his car door, and I followed, somewhat crabbily along the tall grasses leading to the pond.  Normally I’d be overjoyed to be in such a romantic setting on such a beautiful day with Mika, but not today.  I just wanted to be alone.

He turned to face me, putting his hands on my shoulders and looking into my eyes.  He brushed a strand of my hair that had fallen out of my updo, sweeping it up and over my eyes.  His finger that stroked my cheek was gentle, and his eyes looked concerned.

Screenshot-13

“I take it the visit with your mother didn’t go as planned?” He asked softly.

“No, no it didn’t.” I said surprised to feel my eyes well up with tears once more.  Hadn’t I already cried enough?  I was shocked I was able to even produce anymore tears.  “She’s awful.  She said she wished she had gotten an abortion.”

“I’m sorry, Madeline.  She doesn’t deserve to have a daughter like you.”

I laughed.  “If you say so.” I began to cry in earnest now.

Screenshot-14Screenshot-15

I needed to feel something.  Anything.  Other than this crushing, overwhelming disappointment and anguish.  I wanted to feel loved.  Needed.  Wanted.  I stepped across the empty space between Mika and I, and grabbed him, raising my lips to his.  His familiar taste and smell invaded my senses, overwhelming me.

Screenshot-16Screenshot-17

Mika pulled back, looking guilty, his face full of remorse.  “We can’t.” He said simply.  He took a step back, breaking my heart for the second time that day.

“Why the hell can’t we?” I choked out, my face ten shades of red.

“It’s not right.  Madeline, I know you’re hurting, and I want to kiss you.  I want that more than anything in the world, but until you break things off with Riley, I just can’t.  I’m not that guy.”

Screenshot-18

“Well thanks for nothing.” I choked out, knowing that I was bitter and angry, and lashing out, but I didn’t care.

“Madeline…” Mika stepped forward, trying to hug me, I held up my hands and pushed him away.

“Just go.” I spat.  “Get the hell out of here.”

Mika gave me one last sad look, then turned and walked away leaving me standing by the pond alone.

Screenshot-19

Alone at last, I fell to my knees by pond, dissolving into tears that burned down my cheeks.  Mika didn’t want me, hell my own mother wished I was never born, and my life was falling apart.  I stared across the open field in the direction Mika had disappeared wishing more than anything to see him walking back towards me with his lopsided smile.  I had probably pushed him away for good, and now he would want nothing to do with me.  I was truly alone…

Riley was right, about everything.  He warned me that finding my mother was going to cause me nothing but grief and heartache, and I wasn’t looking forward to hearing the words ‘I told you so’, even if I did deserve it.

I straightened up wiping the tears away from my eyes, and with a grim look of determination, began walking towards town…

  1. her mother is a super bitch! she’s right she doesn’t deserve to have children and telling what her second daughter said she hasn’t changed much. mika does want you but you’re still attached to riley. if riley says i told you so i’m going to punch him in his mouth.

    • Super bitch is right! As far as her having changed. She was good for awhile, but her demons grabbed hold of her again, dragging her back down to hell. I can’t wait to get deeper into her story, I thought maybe about doing a side story for Melissa but we’ll see. Thanks for reading!

  2. Stubborn, little brat… You know who to write about infuriating characters… the mother, Riley, Zoe, and even Madeline… the only ones that have not aggravated me yet are Mika, and Madeline’s grandmother.

    However I still think it is a great story, and not just for the shocking aggravation, okay so it’s mostly Mika right now, but also because I’m curious about what’s going to happen next.

    P.S. how do you pronounce Mika’s name? I’ve been saying Meeka, or is it Myka to you?

    • LOL. Yes, I like to write infuriating characters, because I find they are the most realistic. People don’t always make the perfect choices, or do the right thing in any given situation. I find that’s what I love about Madeline. She does learn as she goes, even if she is an idiot sometimes. ROFL. As far as Mika’s name. I pronounce it Myka. I’ve seen it spelled all different kinds of ways. Like the name Mike with an A at the end. 🙂 Thx for reading!

      • Great now I can read it with the right pronunciation… Mika is awesome, not at all what I was expecting from that “One night stand”

  3. Wow, that didn’t go well at all. I think Melody is right, it seems like Madeline’s mother is using drugs again. But Melody doesn’t seem that awful, I hope they can form a relationship. And Mika, he’s such a nice guy, almost too nice. She really does need to break things off with Riley… Great chapter and I can’t wait to see what happen’s next!

    • Yes, her meeting didn’t go very well at all. 😦 A lot of it had to do with the drugs, but she isn’t a very good person to start with, the drugs just added to it. 😦 You are right Mika is nice, sometimes too nice. Not a lot of guys would put up with the crap that Madeline puts him through. She needs to get her act together before she looses him. Thanks for reading!

  4. Oh poor Madeline 😦 I was worried things wouldn’t go well with her mother, but I didn’t imagine them going that bad. What kind of person wouldn’t at least give their own child a decent conversation? I’m glad Madeline has Mika, but she needs to break it off with Riley before she drives Mika away.

    Great writing! You always leave me wondering what is coming next!

    • Yes, you would think the least her mom would do would give her a decent conversation, and at least explain why she gave her up. Her mom is back into drugs, and that had a lot to do with her behavior, not that she’s perfect to start with, but the drugs add to it. I’m glad you like the story and that I keep you wondering. I try 🙂 Thanks for commenting!

  5. Hmm, so just as I expected, her mother never really changed. I know she thinks that Riley might be the right guy, but I don’t blame her for wanting to know who her mother is. I’m still on team Mika so I hope she be able to think straight, because I hate Riley with a burning passion. I’m not sure what to say about her half-sister so who knows… Great chapter! I can’t wait for more 😀

    • Sadly, you were right. Madeline’s mother hasn’t changed much, she’s still self serving, and into drugs, despite her seemingly perfect life. Glad you liked the chapter! Thanks for reading and commenting!

  6. I was afraid the reunion would go something like that. Melissa saying she wished she’d aborted Madeline was over the line … waaaaay over the line. I hope Madeline breaks it off with Riley soon so Mika can comfort Madeline. She could certainly use it right now. She’s too upset to see he’s just trying to be a stand-up guy, which is actually a good thing.

    BTW, I’ve been meaning to tell you, I love your analogies. The Titanic reference in this update was a beautiful touch.

    • Melissa telling Madeline she should have aborted her definitely was way over the line. I can’t even imagine how someone could tell someone that. She’s a horrible person, and definitely doesn’t deserve to have had 3 healthy children. Thanks for reading!

  7. This heifer! I want to poke her eye out with a stick. What a horrible mother! How does one come back from something like that? (And man, you make great evil characters!)

    If I was Maddy, I’d have told her to screw herself and then walked into that house and exposed all her secrets, the lying ****!!!

    And now for my Mika moment. C’mon dude, she’s going to break up with Riley, but she’s hurting here…cut her some slack. I hope Maddy is heading straight to Riley to end that so she can crawl into bed with Mika and let him console her. Although, I’m worried with all her “Riley was right,” talk that she might be waffling…

    • Yes! Lets poke her with sticks. She is a horrible mother. The worst. She should have been sterilized to stop her from reproducing. 😦 If I was Madeline, I would have walked into that house also and exposed those secrets. Thanks for reading!

    • YES!! I love Revenge! Good show, I do love muh drama. 🙂 Hmmm I don’t remember that part though, but definitely sounds like something they would say on that show. I actually have the newest episode on my DVR I just haven’t watched it yet.

  8. Oh Mika *sigh*…Such a dumb young man. LOL I desperately hope she doesn’t go back to that stuck up douchebag….But something tells me you’re going to be evil and go that route. LOL

  9. Ugh, I pressed the button too soon…I also wanted to add that I am appalled at how much of a bitch her mother has become! I so wasn’t expecting that, which is awesome. 😉 Great update as always and I look forward to reading more!!!

  10. How could she have dealt with her mother and then go through a really bad break up? I feel bad for mika because it was prob too much to ask Madeline to break up with Riley that moment and also walk away from her. Now Madeline thinks that he doesn’t want him!

    • Madeline is going through a lot of crap right now. Not only the drama with her boys, but all this with her mother as well. It has to be a lot for one person to handle. Her sister is snobby having grown up in a rich home, and had a pretty sheltered life, but she’s seen a lot and delt with a lot from her mother watching her addiction with drugs, there is more to her then we’ve seen so far. 🙂 Thanks for reading and commenting!

  11. That’s awful what happened between the two. I thought her mother would be more like her grandmother, caring and all. Hope things turn around for her, 🙂

  12. … Well that didn’t went the way one excepted and that really must have been a shock at first for Madeline. But then anger came and so did it for me. Her mother can go to hell and Madeline really was better of without her!
    But Mika…. T_T Maddie loves you and you love her, but he’s a gentleman so of course he waits until things are off with Riley for good. Still, now that Madeline feels like that and thinks so… omg, please darling, don’t go do something stupid!!! :O
    This was beyond what I could think of and took the chair right away from me (like “dragged-it-away-and-left-me-to-hit-the-floor-way”) But so good!! 🙂 You really know how to write to keep your readers interested and how to write good too!! 😀 Don’t ever stop ❤

    • You are right on that. Madeline is definitely better without her in her life, although the hurt is too fresh and she doesn’t see that yet. I’m so glad you like the story, don’t worry I don’t intend to ever stop, although I do wonder what the Sims 4 will be like, and if I will continue the story from that game. We’ll see. 🙂 THanks for reading as always ❤

  13. WHY!?!?!?! Maddie’s mother is a bitch and Mika walked away, but hopefully will return. At least her sister isn’t the total bitch like I thought she was at first. You are a great writer, and someday I hope to write stories like yours 🙂 .

    -Allison

    • Maddie’s mother definitely is one mega bitch. Her sister isn’t that bad, she’s a little snotty and stuck up, but she’s delt with a lot of her own bullshit from her mother and will be a good allie for Madeline. 🙂 Awww thanks so much for the compliment. You are too nice, and definitely made my day. Thanks for reading and commenting 🙂

  14. Her mom’s a jerk, and I really want Madeline to meet her dad as well. Her half-sister isn’t as bad as she first came off as.

    • I’m glad that Madeline’s sister isn’t that bad as her mother, so at least she has someone to talk too. As for her dad, we’ll see. He’s sort of a mystery right now. hehe 🙂

  15. Oh poor Madeline. : ( I can’t imagine the pain from hearing your mother say those things.

    I’m in such shock, I don’t know what to say right now! Uh! I just want to grab the mom and shake some sense into her but I don’t think that’s possible; not after the way she talked to Madeline.

    I have a feeling Mika doesn’t give up so easily and I know Madeline’s had other things to think about lately, but she really needs to break up with Riley so Mika can do what she and he want to do together!!!! 🙂

    Great chapter, as always!

    • When I was writing this chapter I felt so guilty, because those are words I would never ever say to anyone, let alone my own child, so that was hard to write for me. Not that Madeline feels the hurt, she’s just pixels, but I still felt guilty. I’m glad it came across as effective as I wanted it too. 🙂 Thanks so much for your comments 🙂

  16. My guess is that Mika didn’t leave. He wouldn’t just abandon her in the park like that, not his style. My guess is he’s giving her her space and he’s waiting in his car in the parking lot so they can go home. I don’t blame him for not wanting to kiss her. She’s an emotional wreck right now and kissing while she’s still with Riley wouldn’t make her feel any better at all. She’d feel guilty afterwards. He’s still the good guy that we all love him for. Her mom on the other hand…

    I can’t say I’m surprised at how she treated her after all these years but I have a feeling that will come around too eventually. If not through her mom than through her family. I think her kids, and maybe even her husband will want to get to know Maddy.

    Just my thoughts.

    • Mika is definitely too nice of a guy to just leave, but even the nicest of guys can be pushed too far, and Madeline has a tendancy to sometimes push people away that care for her. Its a defense mechanisim. Thanks so much for reading and commenting! 🙂

  17. Wow, Melissa is a total bitch. She abandoned her child then has the nerve to tell them that she wished she aborted them. Rough. I hope she really is on drugs again so her ‘perfect’ family can fall apart.

    As for Mika, I feel so bad for him. Maddy is always pushing that poor guy away. Though, I don’t think he’ll be gone for long considering that they told each other they love each other in the car. I just hope she doesn’t go back to the twat that is Riley.

    All in all, great chapter! Can’t wait for more!

    • Total bitch is right! I can’t imagine the kind of person who would abandon her child like that, then say those things. Her life will fall apart, because of her drug use, she has nobody to blame but herself. As for Mika, Maddy does tend to push people that care about her away, and eventually he’ll have enough Thanks for reading and commenting!

  18. Poor Madeline! that’s so awful I can’t imagine how she must have felt. Her sister seems kind of okay? I mean she seems to know what’s up & kind of understand that the mother is on drugs and all. And as for Mika… Aararargh why can’t he just stop being perfect for like two seconds and just be there for Madeline when she needs him? I mean her relationship with Riley is as good as over. Great update though! can’t wait to see what happens next

    • Madeline’s sister is definitely ok. She’s kind of snobby and bitchy in her own right, but she’s not a bad person, she too has delt with her fair share of shit from her mother, and she looks out for her little brother. Glad you enjoyed the update, thanks for reading!!!

  19. I kind of figured that her mom would be like what the fuck are you doing here, not omg I missed you Madeline. I guess Madeline just had to see that for herself. As much as Riley can be a wierdo, he was right about that fact. She really messed up kissing Mika especially since he has been telling her constantly he won’t do anything romantic with her until Riley is out of the picture.

    • Yeah, it was obvious that her mom wouldn’t be exactly thrilled to see Madeline after all these years, but Madeline knew that going into the meeting. She was definitely surprised that her mother was so cold and is just plain a horrible person. Yes, Riley was right about her mother, but she had to find that out for herself, and it was wrong of him to act the way he did. As for kissing Mika, she was hurting and just wanted to feel something, but Mika is too nice of a guy to kiss another persons woman. Thanks for reading 🙂

  20. I feel so bad for Madeline!!! gosh, her mother is horrible, I hope we never see her again. or zoe. Maddy and Mika just need to get together and be happy already

    • Thank you! 🙂 I’m glad you liked the chapter! Yes, lol, Madeline’s mother definitely is a super bitch. Super bitch and love triangles. Lots of drama LOL Thanks for reading and commenting! 🙂

  21. Your writing is fantastic, the way you portray the characters… it’s amazing! I didn’t want this to end. Can’t wait for the next part! I sure hope things look up for Madeline soon, things look pretty crappy at the moment 😦 ❤

    • Thank you. Your comment made me smile. My writing is far from good, but I’m learning, and its not terrible, so I guess I’m ok with it. LOL. I’ve been trying very hard to portray my characters in a way that’s realistic, but also keeping in mind that people don’t want to read novels when they are reading a sims blog, so I leave a lot out that I’d otherwise want in. If that makes sense. 🙂 And yes, Madeline’s life looks pretty crappy right now indeed. Although, its going to get worse before it gets better. I don’t think the girl knows how to be happy at this point. Thank you so much for reading dear!! 🙂

  22. Sigh. Why do you insist on making everything harder every step of the way. I hate to say it, but you have a lot more of your mother in you than you think. Your mama, the woman that raised you, would never lash out at people this way, no matter how much turmoil she was in. I know you’re hurting right now, but slow down and try to fricken think a second before you react for once lady!!!

    I love this story. I love how your character’s aren’t perfect, they don’t always have all of the answers, they don’t always get everything all neat and squeaky clean. I also love your foreshadowing – but I’m on to you now. lol

    Hiding the preggers sickness in this turmoil was a good move. For a second I bought it. But, now I wonder, is there a possibility it’s Riley’s kid? OR – is she going to do her normal stupid thing and run to Riley was so right all the time (though he was never right, because he had no way of guessing this shit.)

    Sigh. I am way to angry. Maybe I need to find me a chill pill.

    • Thank you. Yes, I didn’t want to make her perfect. I wanted to be annoyed by her just a little, to show that in the end she could grow and finally learn from her past. She’s not there yet, but she will be in the end. Ahh, caught that foreshadowing did ya? LOL. I’ll have to be a little more sneaky next time. Haha.

  23. Hm, her half sister could be interesting to get to know. She seemed nice. Not many nice characters so far, except for Mika and her granny. Will she turn away from all the nice people in her life or what?! 😉

    • Yes, her half sister is definitely a nice person and worth getting to know. She just needs to be accepting of her sister, and let her into her life. Madeline has a knack for shutting people out, which isn’t a good thing! Thanks for reading!

  24. I can’t say I was completely surprised her mother was acting like that, but I wasn’t expecting her to be married with children. I’m sorry that Madeline had to endure that, I only hope she can recover. As for Mika, that was probably the best choice for that situation. Even though she was hurting, it wouldn’t of been right.

    • Glad I could somewhat surprise you then. 🙂 Madeline can definitely recover from this, but it will take some time. The feeling abandonment isn’t an easy thing to overcome. Thank you so much for reading and commenting 🙂

  25. I can’t say I didn’t see that coming BUT I had no idea her mother would be such a monster. She is a bitch, I’m sure her picture is right under the word in the dictionary. I can’t believe she tried to pay her to go away, as if she could throw money at her and her past would be erased. Ugh she is a disgusting excuse of a person. I’m glad Maddy let her have it and omg I wanted her to punch her soooo bad. I am disappointed that Maddy pushed Mika away. He’s been nothing but a good friend to her. She has every right to be hurt, but can’t dump it on him. It’s not his fault she chose Riley or that her mother is heartless. I was just feeling bad for her too, and I still do but…shame on her for that. I also liked the scene with Maddy and her sister. At least she wasn’t so defensive and didn’t make Maddy feel even worse.

  26. Oh my, poor Madeline! I wasn’t expecting her mother to be that cruel :'(. She has every right to be hurt but then doing that to Mika..at least her sister didn’t make her feel even worse. Great chapter! I meant to only read 1 chapter today, the last one but then that cliff hanger! I just had to read this next one too! Loving the story!

  27. My heart pretty much broke. Nah, it exploded. Melissa was just really heartless. It was hard to see Maddie go through that. But I’m rooting for some sister-bonding! Even though they might be worlds apart, I really want to see Maddie and Melody connect.

  28. Her mother ugh! How can any mother tell her child she should have had an abortion? I would assume that the rose colored glasses Maddie’s been wearing are off now that she’s met the woman that gave birth to her. I hope she calls her grandmother and apologizes for being so mean and to tell her not to worry about her daughter.

    Maddie you poor mixed up girl. That kiss was a mistake and to tell Mika to go away is only going to make things worse. Don’t go back to Riley. He may have been right about your mother but he isn’t right for you.

  29. Oh man, that encounter with her mother went worse that I expected–I mean, telling her that she should have been aborted? My eyes widened in shock at reading that! I guess there’s probably some truth in Melody’s words–that her mom is a good person deep inside (she did, after all, give Madeline to someone who she knew would raise her well), but that part must be buried pretty deeply inside her at this point. Jeez.

    GAH at Madeline throwing herself on Mika though! That just kills me! He’s really trying to do the right thing and go about this relationship the right way and Madeline is NOT making that easy for him. By the end of this chapter it even sounded like she was going to go back to Riley! Nooooooooo. *head desk* I hope she doesn’t do anything rash–she’s clearly not in a state of mind to be making huge, life-changing decisions at this moment. After all, she’s been seriously hurt :/
