Go out and wait for the bus.

It was an early December morning, and the girls were all waiting for the bus to arrive.

Amy had been quiet all morning, but finally, she said something. “Do you ever wonder what it would be like if this never even happened?”

At first, there was silence. But then Regan said quietly, “I’ve had dreams. About my mom and dad.”

Lily nodded. “I miss my parents, too.”

“I bet we’ll always miss them,” Maddi added. “But if this never happened, I’d never have met you guys! You’re all my best friends. In fact, you’re more than that. You’re like sisters.”

After school, the girls gathered in their bedroom. Nellie wasn’t back from Pizza Hut where she worked (@ Dad, wink, wink :D), so they were on their own for a bit.

“What should we get Nellie for Christmas?” Amy asked. “It’s just two weeks away!” She held a pencil poised over a piece of paper, ready to write down any suggestions.

“Why do we need to get Nellie a present, anyway?” Natalie inquired.

DSC_0315

“Because!” Lily burst out. “Where would we be if she hadn’t taken us in? We’d be dead, or back in Dr. Stark’s little prison.”

“Oh! Oh! I have an idea!” Ellie said, waving her hand in the air. “Something that shows all of our talents.”

DSC_0317

“Great!” Amy said, writing it down. “Something to show our talents.”

DSC_0318

“Come on! Let’s get started.”

DSC_0319

Lily gently placed the lid on Nellie’s present that they had spent all afternoon working on. “It’s perfect.”
