3. What Now?
Lottie and I sat on Madison's bed, now knowing what to do. She's such a sweet kid, and I've considered her family for years. Mum and dad are arranging for her to come with us for a while but it doesn't look too good at the moment. While Lottie was comforting Maddie over the death of her parents from last night’s fire, mum and dad walked into the room. I got up carefully and walked over to them both.
"Well, what's going to happen to Madison?" I asked.
"Mark, you tell him." Mum said. I looked at him hoping for a good answer but he just shook his head at me.
"I'm sorry, Louis. She has to go into care. We tried our hardest. Social workers are outside to take her with them now."
I looked at him as I felt my blood boil. How could they let this happen to her?
"No." I said sternly. "She isn't going into care. I'm not letting that happen to her!" I told my parents, voice cracking a bit as tears filled my eyes but I wouldn't let them escape. My mum looked at her hands knowing there was nothing else that could be done before going over to Maddie and telling her to change her clothes. She got up and walked over to the bathroom and changed. While she was in there, a woman who I assumed is the social worker mum and dad were on about, came into the room.
"Where is Madison?" She asked. She looked just as upset as my parents did. I pointed to the bathroom before storming out. I made my way to the exit of the hospital before running out of the place. I wasn't going to go home tonight. I needed time to think. I needed to be alone.
Hey guys! I'm sorry this was a really short chapter but I wrote this in 15 minutes so you guys could have a little bit of a filler chapter to read until I next update. Please comment what you think as it helps me a lot.
