What did I do to Deserve This?

By Varmint

Adventure / Children

Chapter 1

"Rudy, what are we going to do?" A crying Mary West asked her husband.

They had just returned from the doctors office, not really having to worry about their one year old son, Wally, because he was with his uncle and aunt. She had just recieved what could possibly be the worst news she would ever want to hear.

"You're not thinking of..." Rudy started, worried about the answer. "Abortion..." He gagged out the word, hating the very sound of it. "Right?"

Mary gasped at him and shook her head rapidly. "Of course not!" She yelled, then succumbed to more sobs.

Rudy hugged his wife from behind, rubbing circles onto her back, hoping it would comfort her.

"Rudy, we can't possibly keep this baby. There's no way it will look like you!" Mary cried, shoving her hands into her face, to cover her eyes.

Her husband just rubbed comforting circles into her back, not really knowing what he could say to make her feel better. She had always been one to get attached quickly, even if the person was made by a bad person. Like her newest pregnancy.

"Mary, I know this is all bad... And with Wally, and the financial problems... And I know people will wonder who the father is because we would look nothing like... but," He said, trying to say it the nicest way possible. "How about we put it up for adoption?" He asked tentatively, knowing how unpredictable Mary was at the moment.

His words sunk in, and then she nodded slowly, tears still falling. "You... You're right... I-it's better this way." She admitted, trying to tell herself more than Rudy.

Rudy smiled sadly at her, then nodded slowly. "It's for the better." Even he didn't believe that little lie.

Fourteen years later:

A man in a police outfit, with a young, dark skinned girl by his side, was standing on the front porch of the West household. The man was giving the girl an apologetic look, while she looked down at the floor. Her hands were cuffed behind her back, giving the look that she had recently gotten in trouble with the law. The man knocked on the door, then turned to the girl.

"You do know you are going back to your family since you were born, right?" He asked.

"I do..." She answered in barely a whisper. "But, look at me..." She said, hissing 'me' as if it were poison. "Meeting my biological family because I was arrested." She finished, not even trying to look up.

The man sighed, grabbed the keys for the hands cuffs, and unlocked them. She sighed in appreciation, but didn't do anything but let her arms lie limp against her sides.

"Look, I believe you when you say those diamonds were not in your backpack before." He told her, trying to cheer her up. "And, the owners dropped all charges when they heard your story, and now you're meeting your family for the first time! You should be happy!"

But, she just let her head stay down, not really wanting to hear anything else. Before he could try anything else, the door opened to show a shocked Wally West.

"Uh, hey, officer..." He said, giving a nervous smile. "What's the problem?" He asked, already worrying about the results of his most recent prank.

The man chuckled, already having an idea of what Wally thought. "Don't worry, Walls, you're not in trouble. May we enter?" He asked, giving him a reassuring smile.

Wally's eyes flitted from him to the girl, then nodded and opened the door more. "Sure, come on in." He said, stepping inside to let them pass.

The man nudged the girl, then she started walking inside, followed by the man. Wally led them to the living room, where his mom was watching TV while sewing, and his dad was reading the newspaper. Seeing the new people in the room, they got up, not knowing what was happening. But, Mary had an idea. It's not like a mother ever forget the eyes of their child.

"Rudolph and Mary West?" The officer asked, looking at Mary more intently.

"Yes, officer, what is wrong?" Mary asked, looking from the girl to him.

"Well, Mrs. West, I hope you're okay with meeting your daughter." He said, breaking the news.

All was silent in the house, the words of the man sinking in. The girl only shifted from foot to foot, not liking the gazes that were fixed on her. Mary was the first to react, and it shocked the girl the most.

"Thank God!" She exclaimed, and ran to the girl, enveloping her in a hug.

Rudy reacted next, then also engulfed both of them in his arms, Mary crying with the girl's eyes tearing up. Wally only looked on in shock. He had a sister? The man decided it was his time to leave, and quietly did so, not wanting to interrupt the reunion. Wally then reacted too, and ran at the hug. Hugging them also.

Hey, if he had a sister, he might as well enjoy it... Right? After the group hug was over, they all sat down in the living room, the West's smiling happily, with the girl looking a little uncomfortable, but still happy.

"So, what's your name?" Wally asked, breaking the comfortable silence.

Mary glared at him for being so uncourteous, but the girl smiled shyly.

"M-my name's Danielle." She answered, stuttering out of shear fear. She had never been so accepted before. Her life wasn't exactly lollipops and rainbows, you know?

Wally hummed in thought, then smiled at her. "I like it. Danielle West." He told her, making his parents laugh, and Danielle smile.

"Th-thank you!" She exclaimed, then hugged her brother from the side. They had been sitting on the same couch, making it her easier.

Wally laughed along with her, and their parents smiled. Wally was going to ask his parents how she came to be, and if she really was his sister, but that was for later. For now, their family had been reunited with their long lost member; which most of the family didn't even know exist; and they were going to act like it for the time being.

"So, Danielle, where do you come from?" Ruddy asked, smiling at how his two kids were already bonding.

Wally had his arm slung over her shoulders, smiling at Danielle. "Well, what do you mean? From what orphanage or where was my last house?" She asked, not really knowing how to answer.

Mary and Rudy looked dumbfounded, then they smiled kindly. "Let's start with your latest house." Mary answered calmly.

"Well, my last house was in Central City, then they came here on vacation, and well... Left me." She answered, slowing down at the end.

The three people were shocked to hear this, and then Wally hugged her tighter. "Never again will you be left behind." He promised, making her feel special.

She smiled at him, then hugged back tightly. Mary and Rudy smiled at the two kids, holding hands, and Mary couldn't help but have a fulfilled feeling in her. She has had a feeling that something was missing ever since she gave away her second child to an orphanage, with only four of her family members knowing the truth.

She started tearing up, then got up. "I'm sorry, I have to make a call." She said, voice cracking at the end, as she walked to the kitchen to call the two other people that knew about her second pregnancy.

She dialed the number, then the phone rang two, then a kind male voice spoke.

"Allen residence, who is it?" He asked, making Mary smile.

"Hello Barry, you think you and Iris can come to Blue Valley as soon as possible?" She asked, while smiling at the scene of Wally interrogating Danielle at a very fast speed, making the girl seem a little uncomfortable, yet happy.

"What's wrong Mary?" Barry's voice turned into one of worry, but he got confused when he heard Mary chuckle.

"Barry, you have to come here. Don't ask, just get over here." Mary answered, then hung up.

Barry looked at the phone in his hand, then sped over to his wife, already made up to go to Blue Valley.

First chapter done! Please review, this is my first story and all, and I want to know what I should fix and what I'm doing good.

P.S, this will be set in the first season, but Tim will be Robin, and you'll see why in later chapters. Also, the dialogue in the summary will be explained later.
