Helllllooooo to all of you Lying Game lovers:) I think that this show needs more fanfiction:) Haha so anyway, I've never really been an Ethan/Emma supporter. I have alwayyyysss loved Thayer with her for some reason. I think he's just... awesome. I love him! :D So I'd been waiting for an opportunity to write fanfiction for the pair for FOREVER, but unfortunately truewriter21 beat me to the punch.. :P haha ANYWAY I'm going to write anyway:D Haha I'm in the process of writing a Terra Nova Story at the same time so I won't update too often. I just have TONS of impatient readers for it... haha:D So I'm apologizing in advance. So yeah...:) thanks anyway guys:)
To the story? I think yes.:)
"Ethan!" A young girl was hurrying down the halls of the police station in one of her usual outfits with strappy high heels. "Ethan!" Her hair billowed behind her as she broke into a run. She burst through a set of doors where Ethan would be. "Ethan!" She gave a desperate but breathless cry.
The room was dimly lit where a metal table and chair was placed. The rest of the room was dark and there was no sign of Ethan Whitehorse anywhere. Emma stood breathing heavily for a moment, staring at the table, knowing she was too late.
"Oh Emma..." The devious but undeniable voice came from the darkest corner of the room. An all too familiar figure stepped into the faint light.
"Where is he?" The words tumbled out of Emma's mouth in utter desperation.
Sutton flipped her hair slightly and examined her nails. Her eyebrows were furrowed in concentration. "Hm... Well after the cops showed up and brought him here, they discovered me after searching the house. Unfortunately for me, I was brought here too. We were questioned and blah blah blah..." She trailed off slightly as she examined her nails more closely. "Oh and then they took him to some detention center or something. Honestly I don't remember and frankly don't care right now. But..." She paused, her eyes glancing up at Emma innocently. "Neither should you... After all," She took a confident step toward Emma with a nonchalant attitude. "He did cheat on you."
Emma felt her jaw drop as she tried to register what Sutton was saying. After a moment of consideration though, she shook her head in definance. "You're lying to me, Sutton. Ethan would never cheat on me. You have an awful habit of lying, you know?"
Sutton gave a slight laugh. "Oh Emma... He's cheated before hasn't he?" She was obviously referring to Ethan cheating on her with Emma. "It would make sense for him to do it again. And might I say, he looks quite handsome in the dark."
Emma wanted to slap her. She wanted to slap her so hard her head spun around on her shoulders, but she took a deep breath. "Ethan wouldn't cheat on me."
"Whatever you say..." Sutton shrugged. "But, now that I'm back in town, I want my life back. So if you'd just switch clothes with me, that'd be great." Sutton gave Emma a smug grin but Emma didn't budge.
"You want your life Sutton?" Emma spat. "You'll have to take it from me." She was fed up with Sutton now.
Sutton just smirked before a set of footsteps came down the hall behind them. "Emma?" Thayer's voice was the first to be heard and soon Mads voice echoed him.
"In here guys." Emma tossed over her shoulder without taking her menacing gaze off of Sutton who had gone back to her nails.
Thayer and Mads rushed into the room together, but Thayer was first to speak. "Emma. What the hell are you doing?"
Emma gaped at him. "What do you mean, Thayer?"
"Hello Thayer," Sutton smiled at him.
Thayer just cast her an irritated glance. "What are you doing here?"
Sutton just shrugged. "They caught me with Ethan, so they brought me here."
Emma shook her head. "Just forget about her. Thanks for coming guys."
"Emma they're going to see you! Then they'll know about the twins!" Thayer muttered, grabbing her arm gently. "We have to go. Now."
"Oh you don't need to worry about that, Thayer." Emma shrugged. "They already know about us.."
Everybody in the room went silent as they stared at the nonchalent Sutton.
Emma spoke first. "What?"
Thayer soon followed. "You told them? God Sutton! Are you... Insane? You'll never find your birth mother now!"
"You don't think I don't know that?" Sutton spat at him, her words dripping with venom. "I had no choice, Thayer. They found me with Ethan and asked me why I wasn't in Pheonix. What was I supposed to do?"
Emma clenched her teeth. "Make something up? Did you ever think of that, Sutton?"
Sutton just glared at the three of them. "Of course I did. But really, what explaination could have worked? I was visiting him? Oh yeah, that's so convincing."
"It's convincing enough." Emma narrowed her eyes.
Mads finally spoke up. "God will you all just shut up for one second? There isn't anything we can do about it now."
Thayer just cast a dark look at Sutton. "I can't believe you did this."
Sutton shrugged. "You know what I can't believe?"
Thayer held her gaze. "What?"
Sutton sighed and leaned back on her heels. "I can't believe that Ethan cheated on Emma with me. Ha, I thought I would never get him to come back to me. But I guess when people say never to give up, they mean it."
Mads' and Thayer's jaws dropped like Emma's had when she first found out. Mads suddenly looked mortified and furious at the same time. "You're kidding me, Sutton!"
Sutton quirked an eyebrow at her. "Would I ever kid you, Mads?"
Mads just glared at Sutton. "Actually yes Sutton. You would."
Emma shook her head at her two other friends. "She's just lying guys. Trying to psych us out."
"Oh really?" Sutton walked casually toward Emma until she was only a few inches away. "I bet I still smell like him."
Emma hesitantly breathed in through her nose and the undeniable waft of Ethan's rugged smell came to her. She almost felt like gagging as the feeling of betrayal and hurt sunk in. She felt like her heart had been ripped out of her chest and stomped on. "Oh my god..." Tears began to form in her eyes. As much as she didn't want to believe it, she couldn't bring herself not to.
"Emma.." A soft murmer came from behind her as Emma started to choke up.
"I.." Emma trailed. "I can't believe he did this.." Emma's breath caught in her throat as the first fat tears rolled down her cheeks.
Arms wrapped themselves around her and she felt herself pulled into someone's chest. She squeezed her eyes shut, trying to hold the sobs in. She gratefully returned the hug to the warm person shushing her and rocking her slightly as they held her tightly.
"Emma.. I'm so sorry." Mads voice could be heard from a few feet away.
"She should have seen this coming." Sutton threw out smugly as she smirked at Thayer holding Emma. A flash of jealousy behind her eyes but was soon replaced with the evil glint.
"You did this." Thayer growled at the girl a few feet away. "You little bitch. How could you do this to your own sister?"
"My sister?" Sutton looked shocked. "Oh no, Thayer. She's not my sister anymore. She never was."
Mads replied sharply. "After all she's done for you Sutton, and this is how you repay her. I can't even believe I was ever friends with you.."
"Oh well.." Sutton wandered over to the table and snatched up her purse. "I have better friends than you." She walked out the door to the interrogation room before wandering down the hallway to head home.
Mads just watched her brother hold Emma for a minute before muttering something under her breath and walking out quietly herself.
Thayer just stayed, holding Emma in his arms, shushing her and comforting her. His hand drew circles on her back to relax her as she wetted his sleeve over Ethan. It almost physically hurt him to see her in so much pain. After all she's sacrificed, she gets this. But he knew that she wouldn't fight this alone. He'd be with her every step of the way.
