Chapter 20: What Now?!

Selphie's POV:

Just like I thought, the girls' party turned out to be really fun for them. We had set up a Disney movie marathon and let them watch and play their characters. It was fun to watch them as we, the adults, talked. Even though Riku says he despises Disney I could tell he enjoyed it too. The only thing that's bugging me is the argument we had the day before. I've never yelled at Kiara. I'm firm with her but I'm only as firm with her as I am with my own girls. It's true I didn't really want to adopt her but I understand how Riku must feel and I wouldn't want any child to grow up in an orphanage. As we went back to Twilight Town at the end of the summer, I thought things would be better but I was wrong. Kiara was always so polite and sweet in front of Riku but if he wasn't around she was the biggest trouble maker I've ever seen!

"Why do we have to leave?" Kiara asked.

"Because Selphie is still in school." Riku answered her.

"How long does she have to stay?" Kiara asked.

"I have to stay until I graduate college, Kiara." I answered sweetly.

"How long do you stay in college?" she asked.

"Well that depends on a lot of things. Like if you change your major or if you decide to go to medical school if you want to be a doctor." I explained.

"How long though?" she asked impatiently.

"Anywhere from four to eight years." Riku answered.

"Eight years?!" she exclaimed.

"Don't worry. Selphie's already been though three years." Riku laughed.

"And I don't plan on going to medical school or anything so I only have this year left." I told her kindly.

"But still I don't want to leave Destiny Islands." she whined.

"We'll come back." Riku promised.

"Yeah. I've just got to finish this year and I'll have my teaching degree." I told her. "After that we can move back to Destiny Islands."

"Okay." she agreed.

--It's been three months since we moved back to Twilight Town and things have only gotten worse. Kiara refuses to listen to me when Riku's not around. Everything was fine when we first adopted her so I don't understand what changed. Riku keeps talking to me about yelling at her and one day he asked me why I had hit Kiara. I would never do that and he knows it! What is she telling him?

"Selphie, what's the matter?" Riku asked me as he came up behind me and wrapped his arms around my waist.

"Nothing." I lied. I couldn't tell him what Kiara does when he's not around.

"That's not true. Something is wrong." he replied. "Would you please talk to me?"

How can I? I don't want to hurt your feelings. I know how much keeping Kiara means to you. "I'm just not ready to talk about it yet." I told him. More like I don't want to talk about it at all.

"Okay, if you say so." Riku replied as he kissed me. "I'm here when you're ready."

"Thanks." I smiled.

"Will you be okay watching Kiara tonight?" he asked before he left the room.

"What?" I looked up. Another night watching Kiara without Riku?

"I was gonna go hang out with Hayner tonight…" Riku trailed off. "If you're not up to it I don't have to go."

"No, it's okay. Go. Have fun. I'll be fine. I can watch Kiara."

"Okay, but I'll only go if you're sure." Riku told me.

"I'm sure." I smiled. "Go, have fun."

He smiled, kissed me one last time and left. Please let everything be okay. Help Kiara be the angel I know she can be. I don't want to argue anymore. I prayed as I sat down at the window and stared out.

"Where's Riku?" Kiara demanded as she entered the room.

I turned to her. "He's with some friends tonight." I answered. "So that means we get to have a girl's night." I smiled trying to be polite.

"I don't want to unless we go out." Kiara told me plainly.

"Kiara, I don't feel like going anywhere right now and we don't have that kind of money either." I explained.

"If we go to Chuckie E. Cheese it won't be a problem. The twins would have fun too." Kiara pressed on.

"I said no." I told her firmly. "Besides the girls are at my dad's house tonight."

"WELL I WANT TO GO TO CHUCKIE E CHEESE NOW!!" She screamed.

"Kiara!" I scolded. "You know not to yell at me. I told you no. We aren't going to Chuckie E. Cheese tonight." I told her sternly.

"Why do you hate me?" Kiara asked suddenly.

"Kiara, I never said I hated you."

"You don't have to say it! You show it!" She exclaimed. "You don't let me do anything I want to!"

"Kiara, we just don't have the time nor the money to do those kinds of things right now."

"You always say that! It's always the same answer! Just admit it you don't want me to have fun! You want to torture me because you hate me!"

"Kiara, stop it!" I said raising my voice at her.

"See you do hate me! You just yelled at me!"

"Just because I raised my voice a little does not mean I hate you." I told her.

"But you do! You hate me because you hated my mom!"

"Don't you say that! You don't know anything about my life!" I exclaimed. She was really starting to get on my nerves.

"I know you hated my mom and now you hate me! That's all that matters! You never wanted me here in the first place!"

"Don't you dare think that!"

"Why because it's true and you won't admit it?! You never liked me and you never will!"

"Kiara, stop it! I never—"

"I HATE YOU!!" Kiara screamed interrupting me.

"I HATE YOU TOO!! IS THAT WHAT YOU WANT TO HEAR?!" I yelled before I could stop myself. She froze and stepped back as tears started to roll down her cheeks. "Kiara, I'm sorry…. I didn't mean…" She took off running out of the room. I can't believe I said that. What have I done? I thought as tears rolled down my cheeks as well.

"Selphie, what's going on?" Riku asked as he came in the room. "Kiara's in tears."

"I thought you were hanging out with Hayner."

"He had to cancel. Mind telling me what happened?"

"I'm sorry. I can't believe I… …" I started to say. "Look the truth is I'm not happy with Kiara. She's deviant. She's an angel when you're around but as soon as you turn your back she's a little devil. She screams at me for things she wants and presses on and on until I give it to her. She even broke something in the store because I wouldn't get something for her. She yells at me all the time. She doesn't respect me. And after you left she came in demanding to know where you were and kept demanding that we go to Chuckie E. Cheese. I told her no and she kept pushing it. We got into a big argument and we both told each other that we hated each other."

"You what?!" Riku exclaimed. "Well no wander!"

"Riku! Don't you think I feel bad enough?! I lost control and I'm sorry but you don't have to—"

"Selphie, you've never lost control before. What's so different about Kiara?"

"I don't know. I just…"

"Just what didn't think?! I knew you didn't like the fact that we adopted her but you really over did it this time. If you think I didn't know she was making things up and trying to get you angry you're wrong. I knew all along. I just never thought you'd go so far as tell her that you hated her." Riku replied. Great now Riku is mad at me. What am I supposed to do now? "That was the last straw. Are you gonna start yelling at the girls now?"

I jerked my head up in surprise. "How dare you say that! You know I would never—"

"Never lose control. You did with Kiara so what makes you think you wouldn't with the girls?" Riku snapped back.

"Riku! How can you..?"

"Because I of all people would know what it's like controlling a temper like that. And I know that once you lose it doesn't just go away. You'll lose it again and again."

"I'll try not to. I just—"

"Just what, Selphie? Lost control? Yeah I know. That's the problem!" he snapped.

"Let me finish a sentence!" I yelled.

"What's the point? I know what you're going to say." Riku replied coldly.

"Fine. Then that's it." I told him plainly as tears streamed down my face.

"What's it? What are you talking about?"

I gotta say what's on my mind
Something about us
doesn't seem right these days
life keeps getting in the way
Whenever we try, somehow the plan
is always rearranged

It's so hard to say
But I've gotta do what's best for me
You'll be ok..

"If you don't trust me then I don't belong here." I answered.

I've got to move on and be who I am
I just don't belong here
I hope you understand
We might find our place in this
world someday
But at least for now
I gotta go my own way

"What does that mean?" he asked.

"I mean if you don't trust me then there's no reason for to stay here."

Don't wanna leave it all behind
But I get my hopes up
and I watch them fall everytime
Another colour turns to grey
and it's just too hard to watch it all
slowly fade away
I'm leaving today 'cause I've
gotta do what's best for me
you'll be ok..
I've got to move on and be who I am
I just don't belong here
I hope you understand
We might find our place in this
world someday
But at least for now
I gotta go my own way

"You're leaving me?!" he asked surprised.

What about us?
What about everything we've been through?

"For now… yes." I answered.

"Please tell me you're joking."

What about trust?

"I'm not. I'm going to my dad's for a while." I told him and started to leave the room.

You know I never wanted to hurt you

"Selphie, I didn't mean…" he started as he took my wrist trying to stop me.

And what about me?

"You may not have meant to but you did. I need some time."


What am I supposed to do?

"What can I do to convince you to stay?" he asked.

I gotta leave but I'll miss you

"Nothing right now." I answered tears still in my eyes.

I'll miss you


"Selphie…. please… …"

so
I've got to move on and be who I am

"I told you, I have to get away right now."

Why do you have to go?

"Don't go… … please…" he continued to beg.


I just don't belong here
I hope you understand

"I can't stay here." I stated.

I'm trying to understand

"Why not? Selphie, I need you."

We might find our place in this
world someday
but at least for now

"I can't."

I want you to stay

"I'll do anything."


I wanna go my own way
I've got to move on and be who I am

"I've got to figure some things out."

What about us?

"You can do that here… with me." He tried to convince me as he pulled me into his arms.

I just don't belong here
I hope you understand

"I've got to do this on my own."

I'm trying to understand

"Can't you just stay here with me?"


We might find our place in this
world someday
but at least for now
I gotta go my own way
I gotta go my own way
I gotta go my own way

Everybody's always talking at me
Everybody's trying to get in my head
I wanna listen to my own heart talking
I need to count on myself instead

"
I've gotta go." I told him as I pulled away from him and grabbed my coat.

"Selphie… what are doing? Please stay." Riku begged.

"I need to get away for a while. I don't know how long I'll be." I told him.

"Please don't say we're getting a divorce."

"Just consider this a separation for now." Selphie answered solemnly and left.

Kiara's POV:

"I HATE YOU!!" I screamed at her.

"I HATE YOU TOO!! IS THAT WHAT YOU WANT TO HEAR?!" Selphie yelled back. I froze and stepped back as tears started to roll down my cheeks. "Kiara, I'm sorry…. I didn't mean…" I took off running out of the room and ran into Riku.

"Kiara, what's wrong?" He asked. I looked up at him as the tears continued to stream down my face and continued to run past him. I couldn't talk to anyone right now. I sank to a corner in my room and hugged my knees as I cried. I didn't know she'd actually say it. I honestly didn't think she hated me and now I know the truth. She really never wanted me here. I want my mommy. I want to be with her.

As I sat there wishing mommy could hold me again I heard Riku and Selphie yelling at each other. At first it scared me because I didn't expect it.

"Just what, Selphie? Lost control? Yeah I know. That's the problem!" Riku snapped at her.

"Let me finish a sentence!" Selphie yelled.

"What's the point? I know what you're going to say." Riku replied coldly.

"Fine. Then that's it." Selphie told him plainly.

"What's it? What are you talking about?" Riku asked surprised as the yelling stopped. I strained got up and went to my doorway to hear.

"If you don't trust me then I don't belong here." Selphie answered him.

"What does that mean?" Riku asked.

"I mean if you don't trust me then there's no reason for to stay here." Selphie replied sounding depressed.

"You're leaving me?!" Riku asked even more surprised.

"For now… yes." Selphie answered.

"Please tell me you're joking." Riku replied.

"I'm not. I'm going to my dad's for a while." Selphie told him as she started to leave the room.

"Selphie… I didn't mean…." Riku started softly as he grabbed her wrist.

They continued to talk softly enough that I couldn't hear so I tried to move closer and listen without being noticed. Riku pulled Selphie into his arms.

"I've got to do this on my own." Selphie told him softly.

"Can't you just stay here with me?" Riku asked her.

"I've gotta go." Selphie told him as she pulled away from him and grabbed her coat.

"Selphie… what are doing? Please stay." Riku begged.

"I need to get away for a while. I don't know how long I'll be." Selphie told him.

"Please don't say we're getting a divorce." Riku said sadly.

"Just consider this a separation for now." Selphie said just as sad and left. I rushed back to my room and punched the air.

She's gone! I did it! Yes! I've done it!
