decided to stay and live in New York, the apartment is beautiful and big with warm colours and a homey atmosphere. Evan’s now 13 years old we celebrated his birthday a week ago by spending sometime in Louis’s hometown in Ireland, his family were still so sweet and kind to us. His brother was also there and was a great laugh telling us embarrassing stories about Louis when he was little, though Louis wasn’t too happy about it. Louis is still a lawyer by day and by some nights the lead singer of his band. Me I am now performing a lot more as well as teaching others to play the cello with Lizzy since she and her husband also decided to move here too. Even with all this deep down I felt like something was missing, call me crazy but it’s true. Me, Louis and Evan were at Central Park since it was a nice day in the summer and we needed a family day out, we had brought a picnic and were currently eating our lunch talking about Evan’s progress in Juilliard. “That’s great Evan I am so proud of you”. He gave Evan a proud fatherly smile and carried on eating his sandwich, for such a short time Louis had taken on the father role amazingly. I was cut out of thoughts as my phone went off, I looked at the ID caller Mr. Jeffries flashed on the screen, we had become good friends since he found Hope at the concert a year ago, despite age Hope and Evan had become good friends. I flipped open my phone, “Hi Mr. Jeffries”. “Hi Lyla, listen do you think we can meet up and talk somewhere private it’s important?”. Strange, he seemed so unsure and sad? “Um, sure, um look we are in Central Park, so how about we meet at SheepMeadow Café?” I said, still confused as to why he wanted to see me. “Great see you there in 10 minutes thanks for doing this on short notice”, he thanked and cut off. I closed my phone.
“Everything alright Lyla?”, asked my concerned husband, looking at him I replied “Yeah just have to have a quick talk to Mr. Jeffries then I will be back. You too stay here and have some father son quality time.” I told him while getting up and grapping my bag. “Ok be safe”. He got and gave me a quick kiss on the lips. I heard Evan say “Ew” as we kissed. Smiling I lent down and kissed the top of his head “Love you too”, I said to him. I arrived 5 minutes later at the Café, and sat down at a table by the window inside. While watching the people go by outside, I didn’t notice that Mr. Jeffries had arrived until he sat down opposite me. He face seemed drained with a dead pan look. “Is everything ok?”. “Lyla I have some news”, he started. “Ok?”. It came out more of a question than anything. He opened his mouth to say something but closed it, “Just read these it will be easier to explain if you do”. Pulling out a file out of his shoulder bag and pushing it across the table to me. Casting him a curious glance I opened the file and started to read: “Baby: Girl” “DOB: 12-17-95” “Weight: 5lbs” “Allow adoption…” “Release signature from all parental rights: Lyla Novacek” Looking at Mr. Jeffries I asked quietly “What is this?”. “Lyla I think you may have had twins without even knowing… it’s the same forged signature meaning your father also signed this too”. Oh my God this can’t be true it’s a joke, but no I didn’t have a ultrasound since father thought it was unnecessary. “Oh my God” I whispered, my hand came and covered my mouth and tears fell from my eyes. I have another child I didn’t know about, why didn’t father tell me, I remembered the night I went to see him and he told me about Evan.
FLASHBACK “Lyla I am so sorry I didn’t tell you, but this could of ruined your future I did what I thought was best for us please understand that” he pleaded in a quiet, tired voice, while holding my hand as tight as he could which was very little since he was seriously ill. I pulled my hand out of his and stood up anger filled me “No you did what you thought was best for you, you didn’t like the fact that people would look at you differently because you had a young pregnant daughter”. turning and leaving for the door. “Lyla wait please there’s more!”. I heard him call out, well I don’t care if there’s more it’s just going to be where his will and prized possessions are. An hour later the hospital called and told me he had died of a heart attack but before was mumbling “daughter” and “two” they thought he had wanted me with the “daughter” part but never understood the “two” part. END OF FLASHBACK I mumbled another “Oh God”. So that’s what he meant another child why didn’t I stay and listen to him. “My father was trying to tell me something before he died in hospital”. More tears escaped my eyes, looking up at Mr. Jeffries I continued “He was trying to tell me I had had twins”.
Chapter 2 Nadine’s POV Well we are finally moving again back to New York, since you don’t know what I am on about you see the old orphanage we went to in New York got burnt down, so we moved to Ireland where the orphanage was originally set up, and now since it’s been rebuilt we are moving back. Its complicated I know. Let me introduce myself, my name is Nadine Wilson of course it’s not my real last name since I don’t know who my parents are, I am 13 years old, I
was born in New York then moved to Ireland when I was 3 years old, I am 5ft 1, average size with a toned body. I have bright blue eyes with brown hair and an Irish accent. I love playing the guitar and piano as well as composing my own pieces. But mostly I love Parkour don’t get me wrong music is great but Parkour is more fun. I got into it when I was 6 years old, when I saw 1 of the orphans practicing some tricks outside behind the building. FLASHBACK Me and my best friend Claire had been playing catch with my new ball I got for my birthday, when Brooke and her little followers also known as Tiffany and Bree who were 10 years old, came and grabbed my ball. “Oh nice ball Nadine, mind if we play with it for awhile?”. I went to grab it but she held it high so I could not reach. “Oh can little Nadine not share her toys?”. Why did she have to be so horrible? “I can share but not with you. Now give me my ball back!”. I went to grab it again but she held it up high. “Oh you want it? Well go fetch”. She kicked the ball and it flew straight to the other side of the building. “Have fun”. She left laughing and smiling evilly. “Well you know the rules Nadine no one is allowed to the other of the building, we will just have to wait until someone gets it”. Claire left to go play else where leaving me. I groaned. Well I am not waiting its my new ball someone could take it. Sneakily walking past the buildings while looking around encase 1 of the grown ups came, I made it to the building still keeping hidden and out of view. I heard footsteps coming from where my ball was. Carefully I looked around the wall to see who it was. I saw a boy about 11 year old doing funny tricks that were so cool. While still admiring what he was doing, I saw my ball not to far from him. Yay no one has taken it. Suddenly I felt a familiar tickle in my nose, oh no hold it in, hold it in! “ACHOO ”. Oh no! “Who’s there? Come out!”. It’s too late now Nadine you blew it literally. I walked out from where I was hiding and stood so I was in his view. “Oh err what are you doing here?”. He relaxed once he saw it was me and not someone else.
“I came to get my ball”. I pointed to where it was just behind him. He walked over to it picked it up, came over and gave it to me. “Here”. “Thanks”. I suddenly remember what he had been doing. “What were those cool tricks you were doing?”, I asked. “Oh they were Parkour moves that’s all”, he replied. “They were amazing!”, I exclaimed. He chuckled. “Thanks. Do you want to learn some?”, he asked. I gasped, “Yes please!”. He chuckled again at my enthusiasm, and started to go through what some basic moves were. END OF FLASHBACK I have been doing Parkour ever since, I was good friends with Adam until he was old enough to leave the orphanage. He stilled called to see how I was doing and all but I missed him badly, he had shown me his crew when I was 11 years old and joined them a few weeks after. At first his crew thought I was a joke, but when I showed them what I could do, they were shocked. The crew had 6 members including me but when Adam left it went to 5 member, they are: Me, Chris who is 15, Jack who is 14, Hayden who is 15 and Claire she joined when she caught me doing some tricks and all but demanded I teach her, she has been doing it for 3 years now. Me and Claire are the only girls in the crew, but the guys think of us as 1 of them, since we are tomboys and never ever wear skirts or pink colours. Gross. We mostly wear shirts or huddies with sweatpants as well as Merrell Chameleon shoes, love them! And leather fingerless gloves. And I can tell your thinking bad ass and well yeah we are, we have out run the police once when Chris stole a movie from Blockbusters, it was hilarious! We have done some quite troublesome stuff, and I enjoyed every minute of it. But now we are moving back to New York and SO wish we didn’t! Well me and Claire will find someway to entertain ourselves while staying in New York, right?
