Chapter 2.38: Family

I needed someone to know…about everything. I stared at my phone and scrolled through my contacts. This was crazy, over half of these people I hardly remembered. I stopped at my brother. I hadn’t seen him in years. Wow. My hand hovered over the ‘call’ button. Should I call? They probably didn’t want to be bothered by me. But…oh dang it, I should at least call. Might as well hear about someone’s life that going better than mine… I sighed and hesitantly put the phone up to my ear. I smiled when I heard him pick up.

“Selena? What’s going on?”

“Jonathan… can you guys come over?”

“Yeah, yeah. Right now?”

“Could you? You don’t have to.”

“I’m coming, sis.”

“I hope you don’t mind, but Kiara wanted to come.”

“Sure. How old are you now, Kiara?”

“19.”

“Wow.” I sighed. “So, um, you guys probably noticed that I’m pregnant.”

Yumiko smiled. “Yeah. How many weeks?”

“36 weeks. And I don’t know the gender, like my previous pregnancies.”

“Where’s Derek?” Jonathan asked.

“Oh. I actually wanted to talk to you about that. Um, he…” I gasped, wiping my tears away. “He’s gone… he died.”

“Oh my Watcher. I’m so sorry.”


“Aunt Selena? Can I ask you something?”

“Yeah, sure. What is it, Kiara?”

“I want to move in with you. I want to learn who I am, and I don’t want to live with my family anymore, they don’t get me.”

“Kiara…. But are you sure?”

“Yes. I need to grow up, and I can’t there.”

“Ok…” I was glad that someone else would be here, especially for the birth. I’d been really scared something would go wrong and nobody would be here to help. I couldn’t help but wonder how much Kiara had grown up since they had moved out years ago.

  1. This has all been such an ordeal for her. I think having the company will be a good thing.

  4. Woot – I’m psychic! It’s totally perfect – although she’ll probably have YA shenanigans to deal with as well in addition to toddlers antics. But ANYTHING will be better than nothing.

  5. Wow. Kiara’s style, though. I thought that was what she’d sleep in!
