Chapter 17- Stay with me

_______Ariel's Pov_____

It has been a week since Aunty Ayana has left for work and I miss her a lot. Uncle Henry has been taking care of me and he is the worst cook. On Monday, he burnt the toast and attempted to fry eggs, without cracking it open. For lunch, he made macaroni from the box but he never lit the stove. So when I realized this, I told him I would buy breakfast at Starbucks and buy lunch in the school. He agreed happily to this arrangement.

When I got to school, everyone was outside talking.

Once Dean saw me he called me over. I walked towards them and greeted them. We then walked inside. Elena was there but she didn't look herself.

"Hey Elena, what's up?" I asked smiling.

"Your face." she spitted at me and stormed away.

"What's wrong with her?" Sarah asked.

Dean shrugged his shoulders.

Something was definitely wrong with her.

It was the last week of school since we were in the second week of December and I didn't want my best friend to be upset with me.

So, I chased after her.

"Elena! " I shouted running towards her, "Elena, what's wrong?"

She ignored me and entered the vacant bathroom.

"Elena, tell me what's wrong." I begged her.

" It's my last week here." she told me sadly.

" It's our last week here Elena, school is closing." I responded.

"No, I don't want to go." she said with tears in her eyes.

"You're going to miss school that much?" I asked.

"My mom.... St.Lucia." she cried and I could not understand her.

"What?" I asked confused.

"Do...do you...k-know why ..... I left St.Lucia?

rible. My best friend, Elena, is never coming back. She's going back to Saint Lucia. I don't want her to go. She...she doesn't want to go either." I said crying my heart out.

" Ohh Ariel, I wish there was something I could do. I won't be home until next year. The year is almost over honey. " she said sadly.

I cried even louder.

"Aunty, can Elena stay with me?" I asked her pleadingly. At least I would have some company for the months to come.

I saw her gulp and her eyes looked like she was thinking of what to do.

"Okay. She can stay with us. I'll call her mom. Ariel, I hope you know what this means. I will be adopting her and so she will be like a sister to you." Aunty Ayana said.

My eyes lit up and I wiped away my sad tears. Tears of joy decided to fall on my face.

"Thank you! Thank you so much. I love you Aunty Ayana." I said with enthusiasm.

We soon hung up. I took my iPhone 5s and was about to call Elena, but then I changed my mind. I would just surprise her with the great news on Friday.

I'm so happy she can stay with me.
