17. caring for a friend
Amanda called me up when she was around 5 months pregnant, her bump was now visible. She was very upset when she called me, I suspected that Daryn did something, I was right.
She told me how she told him when she was 3 months pregnant, two months ago. She hadn't spoken to me for awhile. Over that amount of time Daryn had left her alone, her parents rejected her, and she was living with her aunt, which was about done with her.
I met her at the mall food court.
-Me "Hey, so I've heard you've had it tough for the past months... I've talked to my parents and they are willing to take you in, I mean if you want to?"
-Amanda "I-I-I have nothing to say..!" She bursted into tears and gave me the largest hug I'd ever received.
-Amanda "I am so happy, thank you so much I don't know what I'd do if I didn't have you in my life... I feel so alone in this pregnancy, no one but you has been here for me."
-Me "My pleasure now it's getting late and we also need to pick your stuff up from your aunt's house so we should get going."
~fast forward to Elena's house~
After we'd picked up all of Amanda's things we went to my house. We went up to my bedroom where I already had installed a twin sized bed on the other side of my wall for Amanda, I n ew she'd say yes to living here.
-Amanda "It's so nice to be living with a friend that actually cares about me. Thanks a lot, I'm gonna go change and get ready for bed. Good night."
-Me "Good night."
