I was sitting at the table, on my laptop, when the phone rang. It was a beautiful morning. The birds were singing and I had some music going in the background. I was checking my e-mails, looking on Pinterest and I was also thinking of Christmas. It would be here before we knew it and I needed to look for some things.
I went to get the phone and answered it to find that it was Bella and Isla's principle.
"Hello?" I asked.
"Mrs. Horan, this is Mrs. Tayler, Bella and Isla's principle..."
"Yes?" I say.
"I'm gonna need you to come down to the School.... Isla, is sitting in my office." She says.
"Alright, I'll be right down." I say.
I hang up and get the keys.
"Niall?" I shout.
"Yeah?" He shouts back.
"I'll be back, I have to go talk to the principle at Bella and Isla's School." I shout.
"Really? Who got in trouble?" He asks coming into the living room, where as I'm at the front door.
"Isla." I say.
His eyes widen as I walk out to the car.
Getting in, I leave our house and head to the Elementary School.
Once there, I go inside and walk the familiar way to the principle's office.
I knock and get the 'ok' to come in.
"Hello Mrs. Tayler." I say.
"Hello Mrs. Horan." She says with a smile.
I sit down in a chair, next to Isla, and look at the principle.
"The reason I called was because little Isla, got in trouble in class." She says.
"What exactly did she do?" I ask.
"She hit another student in the face." She says.
I look at Isla.
"Isla! Why did you do that?" I ask.
"He called me a idiot!" Skyla says in her little voice.
"You still don't hit people!" I say.
"Since this is the first time she's been called into the office, I'll let it slide, but if it happens again, I'm going to have to punish her some way." She says.
"Completely understandable." I say.
"Niall and I will deal with her, when we get home." I say looking at Isla.
"Well, you can take her home today, she's already missed part of her class so..." She says.
"Thank you, I'm so sorry." I say.
"Have a good day." She says.
"You too." I say.
I escort Isla out to the car and then help her into the car.
I drive home and the silence during the ride home is too silent.
When I walk through the door with Niall I tell him that we all need to talk in the kitchen.
"Isla, go to the kitchen and sit at the table, Daddy and I will be there in a minute.
"What happened?" He asks as she goes to the kitchen.
"She hit another student because they called her an idiot." I say.
His eyes widen at this. "Now, this isn't Isla."
"I know, come on." I say.
We walk into the kitchen and sit down at the table.
"Skyla, I am very disappointed in you... I never would have thought that you would hit someone else like that." I say. "I thought that we'd taught you better."
"I know, I'm sorry." She says.
"Isla, you don't only need to tell us that, you need to tell the person you hit that." Niall says.
"Daddy, do I have too?" She asks.
"Yes! You do! You shouldn't have hit that person anyways." He says.
"Alright, I'm sorry." She says.
"Please go to your room.... You can come back down when you've thought about what you've done." I say.
"Alright Mommy." She says getting out of her chair and heading up the stairs.
Once she leaves I look at Niall.
"I honestly never thought that she would do something like that." Niall says.
"Neither did I." I say sighing.
