Emma was having a hard time in life she was a college student in Connecticut and her parents didn't support her that much. She worked as many shifts as she could at Starbucks. She was 20 and in her 2nd year of college to be a professional dancer.
She was working at Starbucks when a very attractive man walked in, her shift ended in 5 minutes. He smiled at her a ordered. Emma was very nice and flirty, when he got his coffee he sat down and occasionally looked at her. When she got off the man motioned her to take the seat across him, then he introduced himself as Alec. She told him her name and he got up and reached for Emma's hand. She was a excited and took it and they walked out of the shop. When they were around the corner he started kissing her. Emma was started but kissed back and enjoyed it. About a half hour later they made it to a hotel and they got a room.
When Emma woke up the next morning he was sitting at the edge of the bed. She asked him what was wrong. For a while Alec just sat there, when he finally talked it was not what she expected. He said he was Apollo the Greek the god. When Emma heard this she jumped out of the bed. She thought he was just messing with her, that his was playing a cruel joke just the leave. He told her that he felt bad for coming on to her when he knew he couldn't stay. When Emma didn't say anything he continued talking, he told her that if she gets pregnant the child needs to go to a camp in New York no later than 15.
Emma was still sitting in the room two hours after Apollo left. She was baling her eyes out. But then she got up and left she practically ran to a Pharmacy. She bought a Pregnancy test and when back to her Apartment. She threw it on the table and laid on the couch. When her roommate Chelsea got home she asked Emma what was wrong. Emma told her that she might be pregnant and the man just left. Chelsea was surprised but comforted her. She didn't know what to think at the time, Chelsea knew Emma wasn't that kind of girl so the man must have been very persuasive.
The next afternoon she took the test Emma was sitting there worried and it came up positive. She felt horrible, and disgusted. As the pregnancy continued it wasn't easy, she danced in class until she was five months. The good thing was at five months she didn't show that much, but she knew she had to stop now. She had a lot of morning sickness too. She couldn't just drop out of college so she changed her major. It took her a while but when she looked down at her baby bump she decided to major in social work. she was also devastated because dancing was her dream and she had to give it up for the child growing inside of her.
When Emma gave birth to a baby girl, she was relived and really happy. The baby was gorgeous, she also chose not to know the gender until birth it was a total surprise to find the baby was a girl. She had the names Andrew and Audrey picked out. Naturally with the baby being a girl she was named Audrey. Audrey was 8.8Lbs and 24 inches long. she also had a full head of dark brown hair. Chelsea was really happy for Emma and Emma told her that she would be Audrey's "Aunt".
As Audrey grew she didn't actually grow in height that much, Emma was short but she didn't think Audrey wouldn't barely grow. In Preschool and Kindergarten, Audrey was picked on a lot for only having a mother and being short. At the early age of 5 she was diagnosed with Dyslexia. And a year later with ADHD. Audrey knew she was different than the other children because she had these set backs but she didn't know her heritage. Emma told her that her father was on a long trip, Audrey didn't really believe that but also didn't want her mother to become sad by talking about her father so she acted as if she believed it.
Audrey had a really hard childhood she struggled a lot with being short and her disabilities. But she was also very smart. By the time she was 9 she had only 2 friends and her mother had not told her about her father yet. When Audrey stated getting kicked out of schools for...anything teachers could blame on her. Emma was stressed, so she sent Audrey to a dance school, she thought that maybe that would help, she loved dance as much as Emma did. Audrey was there from ages 12-14.
One day she was sitting in the locker room being the slowest Audrey and her friend Amy were the last out when a teacher walked in, she cornered them and turned into something weird and Amy attacked it with a sword and they both ran. Thankfully Audrey only lived 2 blocks from the school, when they got there Emma was at the table eating.
Amy explained everything to Emma. Emma dropped her Pizza and ran into Audrey's room, Emma pack most of Audrey's clothes and her other things in 2 large suitcases and told them to get to the car. When they did, Emma was taking back roads driving frantically, After 3 hours of driving they got to the address that Apollo gave her 15 years ago, she told Audrey everything and then Emma left never to be seen again by Audrey. It's been two years and Audrey is used to her life there, She had been given a pink CB bow, she figured he gave it to her because he thought she was cute. But Audrey Still missed her mom, a lot.
