Zhane nodded. After she changed back Mrs. Elison led her away leaving Kait and Rylee alone. Zhane started to shrink back into herself, staring at the floor and not really rsponding.
"So...how's it been sinc ethey split us up?" Rylee asked Kaity.
Kaity cuckled, nonfunnily, "Well Im alive, and you are too, so I guess better than it could have been? Im so sorry ylee, if I had known how everything woulda worked out back then then I woulda raised you myself, but it looks like you have a family who cares," said Kai, still holding her sister.
"They're noce." Ryle said,s he looked at her hands,
"I was really depressed after they split us up you know..." she said pausing, "I thought you were running with the bad crowd becuase you didn't want me to be with you anymore...you know cuase I so litle adn stuff." Rylee explained. She pulled up sleeves and showed Kaity the scars on her wrists,
"I almost went to a psych ward because I was angry and destructive toards myself." Rylee admitted, pulling her sleeves down again.
((What is Rylee and Kait's last name? I mean Rylee was adopted so her last name is Ellison now but what is Kait's and Rylee original last name? Want me to coem up with it or you?
On the same note what's Kait's full name?))
((Henderson? I dont know whatever you want))
"No, why would you think that? I just got in with the wrong people, I missed you too, bad stuff happenned...
Bad people happened. It had nothing to with you. I quit drinking and cutting becuase i thought they would let me hve you back, but they dsidnt so I was destructive towards myself too," Kait admitted. But she kept her sleeves down, afraid to show the only sanity she had left.
"Im leaving bye"
((OK, seeya. What about Erdos? Their father could be of Hungaian hertiage(hence the last name) and their mother of French or Spanish Heritage...and maybe their mother taught them to speak french or spanish so they can talk to each other in a different language...
(Like Sarai and Kalman can talk to each other in Hebrew or German and the Twins plus Mylo can talk to each other in Italian)))
"I Thought it cause I young when you and I were split up and I didn't understand, I wanted you back and nobody would let me see you or explain why." Rylee explained.
Mrs. Ellison came over with the rest of the children, she'd bought Zhane and Kait's new clothes and had bought a large box of crayons that had 120 different colors plus another one that had 8 large crayons and some new drawing pads,
"Is there anything else you need Kait? Jewelry? Room decorations?" Mrs. Ellison asked.
"We have some stuff in the garage at home you can check out to decorate your room with if you want to look at that stuff first." Rylee added.
((Sure but the only language i speak is english O.o))
"No, thats not what it was Rylee, and sure," Kait added,"I will look at the stuff in your garage later first."
((Hehe, I can say dumb stuff in French like' He has an apple'...real useful if I get stranded somewhere eh?
Anyway we'll just say if they're speaking French before hand. Like put it this way "He has an apple" Rylee stated in French.))
Everyone piled back into the car. Zhaned had her stuff shoved in her bag and was hugging he rbag as they went back, staring at the floor. Ryee looked at her sister,
"When we get back I'll show you our room and the decoration in the garage." she told her.
"Sounds cool," said Kait, "Hey Zhane, you like your new stuff?"
((sure im alright with that))
ZHane nodded. She pulled her new crayon box out and opened it, showing Kat all the colors.
"Pretty colors." she explained. She carefully shut the box and put it away. Then she went back to hugging her bag. They got back to the house and Zhane got out, heading for her bedroom.
Mrs. Ellison glanced at Kait, giving her apointiant look to remind her she'd promise dto make sure Zhane ate.
"I'll go see if I can find teh decorations in the garage." RYlee volunteered.
"And I am going to go talk with Zhane for a few alright? I will meet you in the garage in a few," and Kait headed to Zhanes room.
"That's cool, it'll take me a while to get through all the stuff in the garage." Rylee said. She went into the garage and satrted to wading through boxes, bags, bins, tupperware containers and everyother container in the crowded junk filled garage.
Zhane was seated on her bed. She picked at the bright strings on her comforter and sheets. Zhane then starte dto put her beanie babies on her bed, lining them up neatly.
"So, Zhane, have you had anything to eat today?" Kait wasnt sure how to ask this question. She saw tha Zhane was arranging the beanie babies and wasnt sure if it was because she was nervous.
Zhane shook her head, still arranging her beanie babies in a creful, seeming random order. It was in order in her mind. She had Kisses the teddy bear sit on top of her pillow. and then looked at all her beanie babies, rearranging a few here and there to make sure it was just perfect.
"Don't like food. Makes people fat...don't get adopted if you fat." Zhane explained, using probably the most words she had all the time she'd been here. She picked up a beanie baby octopus and put it in the pocket of her overalls to take with her if sh eha dto leave her room
"Well Zhane, am I fat? Food is good for you and Mrs. Jayde has some really good food." Kait was in undiscovered territory here.
Zhane shook her head, still looking at her toys,
"Don't want to eat...get sent backif I eat.: she mumbled to herself. She loooked at Kait,
"You pretty...I'm not...have to be skinny or they'll sned me back." Zhane tried to explained.
Rylee came and stood next to Kait her hands shoved in her pockets, wodnering what exactly was going on.
'But ZHane, will you please eat one thing? I promise if they send you back I will go with you, ok? Will you pretty please eat one thing for me?" Kait was desperate, she would do anythingg.
"Rylee is there still some pizza left?"
Rylee nodded. Zhane still seemed unsure. She didn't want to eat but she didn't want to upset Kait.
"Zhane." Rylee said, "If you don't eat mom and dad could get in trouble. If Mom and dad get in trouble ALL of us could be sent away adn split up." Rylee explained.
That idea seeme dto frighten Zhane she slid off her bed and walked over, ready to go get something to eat.
