3. Chapter Three

It was three in the afternoon and Scotland was having a panic attack. The kids would be home any minute. Tori and Jaden by bus and Brittany by car pool. She and Shemar were seated on the back porch. Tori was the first to arrive home. The moment she laid eyes on her uncle, she knew that something was wrong.

"What happened to Mom?" Were the first words out of her mouth.

Shemar reached out his hand and took hers. "She passed away, princess."

Scotland had wanted to be the one to break the news but when the moment had arrived words had completely failed her. She was thankful Shemar had stepped up to the plate.

Victoria's face fell. She looked sad but not in the least surprised. She moved to sit in-between Scotland and Shemar on the small brick wall that ran along the outside of the backyard porch. "I knew this was going to happen one day...what's going to happen to me, Jaden, and Brittany now?" She asked. She was so used to being moved around that she honestly didn't know the answer to that question.

Scotland wrapped her arm around the girl's shoulders. "You kids are going to stay here, at home, with me." She told her firmly.

"And I'm going to stick around and help out," Shemar added.

Victoria didn't respond. She just wiped a few tears away and laid her head on Scotland's shoulder. Shemar began gently rubbing her back,

Ten minutes later Jaden's bus dropped him off at the exact same time as Brittany's car pool pulled up. When the two children arrived and saw Scotland and the uncle that they had only ever met once comforting their older sister they knew that something bad had happened.

"What happened?" Jaden asked anxiously as Brittany climbed up on Scotland's lap.

"Sit down, son," Shemar pointed to one of the patio chairs.

Jaden took a seat without saying a word.

Scotland was the one who broke the news this time. "Kids, your mama has gone to heaven," She explained the best way that she knew how. "She's with God, Jesus, and Mother Mary now,"

Jaden buried his face in his hands and began to weep.

Brittany in her childlike innocence stated loudly, "Now mama is with her mama,"

Scotland hugged the little girl close as the tears again began to fall.
