"Oh," Kait  said, she understood this was Zhanes way of sayin she liked her, for kait used to be like this. Suddenly Kait had an idea, "Ill be right back ok Zhane," then she hugged her and ran upstairs to her room, returning within a minuts with a stuffed bear
"This may be kinda childish Zhane, but this bears name is kisses, I have had since I was 5, and I woulld like you to have her, ok?"

Zhane nodded, she took the bear and carefully place Snuggles at Kait's fet so she would hopefully pick her up.
Zhane had beens atrtled when she was hugged, but had managed not to freak out or have a panic attack.  She hugge dthe bear closely and then put it in her back pack and zipped the bag up.
Pretty hair." she siad glancing up long enough t point at the streaks of blue in Kait's hair.

Kaait held her hand out for Zhane if she wanted to hold it, "You dont have to if you dont want to. WHat would you like to do?"

Zhane put her back pack on her back even though it was large it mad eher feel safer to know it was there.  She cautiously stretche dout her thin hand and clasped Kait's, hoping this wasn't a trick,
Mrs. Ellison came down stairs with the kids going to the store,
"Hey Zhane we're going to the store, if you want to coem we'll get you and Kait some new clothes and room decorations if you want.  And some more crayons." she added.  Zhane looked to Kait to make the desicion.

"Sure, I think that would be fun, don't you Zhane? 
 
 Zhane can you do me a favor and step outside with Rylee, she is just like me, my little sister, i need to ask Mrs. Jayde for some help with something." Kait shot Rylee a look that said 'Be careful'

Rylee led Zhane outside to the car, Sarai followed them and Kalman dragge dhis feet behind them.  The twins were staying home Rylee guessed, robably to talk.  And the boys just didn't like shopping.  Kalman opene dthe van up and the girls piled in, Sarai first, then RYlee, then Zhane and an still an open seta in the front row for Kait.
Kalman sat in the passenger seat.  Zhane put ehr bag on her lap and pulled out her drawing pad and her crayons, most of crayons were broken or half melted and she only had simple colours.

"Mrs. Jayde, Im not sure if you listened at all. SOo far me and Zhane have a somewhat trustin relationship. She isnt very trusting and is scared so be careful at all times, Im not sure what, but a lot of things will most likely trigger bad memories, I used to be like her. Im not sure if this will help, but if you could tell the other lateer, then that would be good."

"Yeah, I already warned them to be catious, we've fostered plenty of children before, Kait.  Some it hasn't gone as well as others, some got adopted before we coudl adopt them, some went to live their fmailies again or different reletives.  And Gary is a social worker.  One of her triggers seems to be high heels, just to warn you"  Jayde explained to Kait as she led her out to the car.  Jayde got into th driver seta and satrted the engine up, waiting for Kait to get in before starting to drive off.
Their first stop was a used clothing store where they got all their clothes.  With as many kids as they had it was cheaper to buy things used, teh store owner kne wthe family well.
 
Zhane was drawing when Katlyn got in, she clutching the crayon tightly withe hr fist and looked extremely concentrated.

"Depends."  Rylee explained,
 
"Mylo and Aria get up crazy early cause they run together, I think they're up at like 4:30 or something like that, Gia will sometimes go with them on their run, but she normally likes to sleep until 6.  Xavier likes to sleep until the last minute when he's dragged out of be dto go to school.  
Aramis wakes up around 5:30-6:00 because after Mylo gets up he doesn't sleep very long.  Zac gets up when Aramis gets up and they cause all sorts of mischief together.
FOr Kalman it depends on his homework load and work schedule, sometimes he never goes to bed or if he does he'll sleep until late cause he went to bed late.  And for little Sarai it depends on her brother's schedule and if she sleeps without nightamres."  Rylee explained,
"I get up usually around 6:00...this is on school days by tehw ay, weekends everyone gets up when they want."  Ryle added.
Sarai ahdn't spoken to the new people yet, she pushe dher hair out of her face,
"Shalom." she said to Kait quietly, her voice accented and soft.

((Oh, thanks))
 
Kait looked at Sarai and smiled, "Shalom," she said. Not sure if that was the correct thing to do."
 
"So, wha timne would i have to get get up?" Jayde laughed, "Maybe around 6:30? We will look into that, but for now school is on a 2 week break, so you get a while off." Kait was relieved, too much change too soon.

((No prob.)
 
Sarai smiled at Kait when she responded,
"I'm Sarai.' she said quietly though she guessed Kait would already know that.  Sarai hadn't been in the country longa nd had onlt been to the school she was going to go to a few times.  She'd had a very bad case of menegitis when she'd first come to the states and had spent a month sick, then ebcause of her weakened immune system she'd become sick again for another month.  After that se'd been to school a bit as she recovered, then school went on break.
"I haven't been to school here much, I was sick, I'm excite dto go back."  Sarai explained quietly.  
 
Zhane continue dto scribble or draw with ehr crayons, seemingly ignoring everything around her, in reality she was listening though.  Zhane was just about to start highschool, which made her very nervous, junior high ahd been difficult for her she doubte dhighschool would be any better

((Sorry forgot to say bye, im back))
 
"Cool," said Kait, "I haven't really been to school for more than a week at a time this year. Been moving around too much." Kait noticed Zhane coloring in her notepad and wanted to involve her in the conversation, "So, Zhane, are you excited for school?" Not knowing what elese to say.
 
Jayde hoped that all the talk about school didnt make Zhane nervouse, she was going to ask her if she wanted to do homeschool but figured now wouldn't be the time, so she drove and listened to the children talk.

Zhane looked up at Kait and shook her head, she wasn't excited for school.  Zahen quickly flipped through her notebook until she found a picture of what looked like a group of girls near some lockers.  One was clearly supposed to be Zhane, the smallest with weird hair and the others were pointing and what looked like laughing.  The smaller stick figure looked to be crying...or at least had a frowny face. 
"Don't like school." Zhane said slowly, "People mean and I stupid." she explained.
 
Sarai nodded when Kait spoke and listened when Zhane spoke, it was har d to hear Zhane because her voice was oddly rough and whispy at the same time.  Rylee looked at the picture, squinting at it to understand it, she reached into her pocket and pulle dout a set of glasses, putting them on so she could see the picture better.

Kait felt bad for Zhane, so said the only thing she knew might help, "I was bullied and made fun of too. They called me stupid, and laughed at my weight, my hair, my face, my grades, but Im not stupid. And you aren't either. I can tell you are very intelligetn Zhane,, if I where in the same grade as you, I would be your best friend. I would still like to be your friend though. You are pretty, and smart Zhane, I am very jealous of your hair." Kait smiled, hoping Zhane would  like her.
Jayde couldnt help being pleased by what Kait had just said, and noticed where Rylee got her intelligence from. Maybe this whole thing would work out better than everyone could even hope.  
 
(({Sarai thought that what Kait said was very smart. "SMart" She said} not sure if tha is okay or not, up to you. bumpp))

((That's fine.  We can have it so we can powerplay all the other children except our own indiviual charries...))
 
"Maybe Zhane would like the school Rylee use dto go to, the alternative school."  Kalman suggested, 
"It help Rys out when she was seriously struggling with school and bullying."  he added.  Rylee nodded, 
"Yeah it was a good school." she turned to her sister, 
"Through half of elementary and the begining of middle school and I went to an alteranitive/occupational school cause I was doing poorly in normal school.  When this semester starts up I'm going back to normal school to see if it's good now." she explained.

((Add-On)) 
 
Zhane half smiled at Kait and went back to drawing, listening to the others conversations,
"The school I went to was 1st-12th grade."  RYlee added.  Zhane didn't respond to the statements made, she'd never been to an alternative or occupational school and the idea made her nervous, but maybe it would be nicer than normal highs chool.

Kait thought that was smart, and wished she coulda done the same thing when she was younger. Still, she thought Zhane should be tutored or something first, with no tknowing what triggers her. She made a note to herself to ask Mrs. Jayde about her schooling situation. 
"That was smart to do, and its good you are doing well in school Rylee, Im proud of you."
 
((be back in about 20 minutes))
