Live While We're Young

I am a orphan, I always have been, my mother and father died when I was eleven. I have been living on the streets since then and I am now 18. I just got a letter from my Aunt Rue in england, she says that she is adopting me. I wasn't happy like I should have been. I didn't want her to adopt me, I wanted Heather to adopt me. Well, Aunt Rue has to adopt me, she is a radio interviewer so I guess she gets to meet celebrities or something. Until she brings home a popular boy band.


2. The Letter

Bella's P.O.V.


I woke up in a soft, bed. Now I know I live on the streets but just a few days ago, I was walking and this really nice lady, ( that was at least in her 60's ) saw me and said from her porch. " Now now child! What are you doing out here! It's freezing get in here! " Since I didn't have anywhere to go I trusted her and came inside her house.

She told me her name was Heather. I told her about me being an orphan and all. So she said I can stay with her all I liked. I put on some clothes that she bought for me. A white tank-top with a wide red tank-top over it, and skinny jeans. I walked downstairs to find her sitting at her dining table with a cup of coffee and a newspaper.

Her house was really small, it was only two stories. The first story had her room, a kitchen, and a tiny living room. The second story had my room and the bathroom. Her dining table was so small it could only seat two people. She looked up and saw me. She smiled. " Morning dear, you can grab some breakfast if you like "

" Thanks " I said. I walked over to see that she made egg omlets. " Omlets! You didn't say you made omlets Heather! " I said while grabbing one. " Oh it's just a thank you present for helping me with the house so much since you've been here " She said. " Thank you Heather " I hugged her, she smelt like cotton.

She didn't have perfume she just smelt like cotton regularly. I stopped hugging her and sat down to enjoy. We talked for a few why eating omlets and drinking coffee. I smiled, I think I'm going to ask Heather if I can stay with her. For good. If she would like to adopt me and all. She seems to enjoy having me around so she would probribly say yes.

I was nervouse about asking so I waited 30 minutes before just blurting it out. I was about to ask when there was a knock at the door. Heather got up and answered it. There was a guy in his 30's or 20's outside with a sack of letters. The mailman, wow, how did I not notice that until now? I mean he has a sack of LETTERS.

Sometimes I don't think I'm that smart. " Yes? " Heather asked. " This is a letter for Bella Jones, that is all. Have a good day ma'm " With that the man gave her the letter and walked off. Heather closed the door any started to open the letter. " What does it say? " I asked standing up. " I'm not gonna read your letter dear, I was just seeing who it's from. "

 She gave me the letter. " mhm " I said. She smiled and then nudged me with her elbow. I giggled and then began to read outloud. " Dear Bella, hi this is your Aunt Rue. I only heard about your parents death until now because of all the radio interviews I've had to do. What I'm trying to say is that I want to adopt you"

I paused and thought for a second, then I kept reading. " I am wealthy and by radio interviewer I mean I interview celebrities and what not. My house is big and I can fit another person in it since I fired my maid, she was terrible anyway. I have already filed the papers so I taped your plane ticket to the back of this letter. Once you get this note please pack ASAP.

I know this is sudden but kid, face the facts. I'm the only thing you got " I looked at Heather. " Well other then the ending you should be happy! Your getting adopted! " She said while taking the note. " Your flight is in two days! Oh I'm so happy for you! " She gave me a big hug. I wasn't happy. I wanted to live with Heather.

Not my aunt who I barley know. " Dear whats wrong? Your getting adopted you should be happy! " She said. " I'm not happy because I wanted you to adopt me " I said. She looked at me. " Darling, I would have said yes but this is your Aunt Rue! Besides you can call me once you get there on her phone, a wealthy person like her must have a phone! "

I started tearing up and hugged Heather. " But Heather I don't want to live wealthy! I want to stay and help you! " " Now, now darling, do not cry! I promise you can come and visit me any time you like, deal? " " Deal " I mumbled while still hugging her.
