11. A new beginning


 3 years later


 I am on my way to a job interview as a live in nanny for a 3 year old girl. I have been in LA for 2 years know, but I am originally from a small town in Louisiana. I moved her with my boyfriend Brad because he wanted to be an actor. Our relationship didn't hold, but I stayed here. I have been working as an actress but what I really want to do is work with kids. Preferably as a kindergarden teacher or something like that.

 This sounded like a great job. Watching a 3 year old girl while her father was at work. There would be a room and food included in the salary. It was better than being a waitress anyway.

 I drive up to the adress and park outside. It is a beautiful wooden house painted grey and white with a stone chimney. It is big but not by LA scale. No where near a mansion.

 I go to ring the doorbell and the door is opened by a beautiful dark haired woman. She smiles at me and extends her hand to me. I take it and shake it. "Hi I am Shekinah. You must be Madison".

 "Hi Shekinah. Just call me Maddie, everyone does". I say smiling. She had been the one I had talked to on the phone. But her brother is the one needing a nanny.

 "Maddie then. Come on in and lets have a talk". She steps aside and I walk past her into the house. It is beautiful on the inside too. There is clean, but everywhere there is little signs that a little girl is leaving here.

 There is a lot of pictures. Almost all of them is of the most beautiful little girl with soft brown curls and hazel eyes. "That is Mirabella". Shekinah says when she sees me looking at them and I answer. "She is just adorable".

 We go sit down in the living-room. Shekinah asks me if I want coffee and I say yes. After she has filled my cup she looks at me. "As you have probably figured out, this isn't an ordinary nanny job. My brother is an actor so he will be away for longer period and work at strange hours. He has been at home the last three years taking care of Bella himself. But he wants to get back to work".

 "That is fine, I am very flexible, especially living here. So is it okay to ask were Mirabella's mother is ?" I thought it better to ask her.

 She sighs and look sad. "She died when Bella was three weeks old. A terrible accident. My brother was absolutely crushed. In some ways he still is. She was his souldmate. Hadn't he had Bella.. I don't think he had come through it without her. But he is a wonderful father to her. He just need to get out there and work again".

"Oh I am so sorry to hear that. It must have been so horrible. I can't imagine how hard is much be to raise you kid alone. Especially for a man". I feel so sorry for him. Having found your soulmate only to loose her and stand alone with a newborn.

 She nods. "It has. But he has really exceeded expectations. Just don't mention his wife, it is still a raw wound to him".

 We talk about me, what I have done so far and what I want in the future. I tell her that I lost my mother when I was young. My father remarried and I have two younger brothers and a younger sister that I used to watch a lot.



 I really like Madison. She seems so sweet, warm and caring. I am sure she is the right woman to take care of Mirabella and maybe a bit my brother too. He haven't taken to much care of himself those past years. Hi focus has been on his daugther.

 The whole family is relieved he has decided to start working again. He has spend way to much time alone. It is time he gets out there and even though no one dare mention it, I think we all hope he will find love again.

 "So how fast can you start ? My brother has already started working and I am kind of doubling as his babysitter now. He is doing a new tv series so he is working here in town and comes home every night". I tell her.

 She smiles and nod. "Well I kind of quit my old job yesterday, so I guess I can start when ever it fits you best". 

 "You know what, my brother is home tomorrow. Might be best for Bella if he is home the first day. So if you could come tomorrow morning". I tell her.

 There is the sound of small footsteps and something small come lumpering into the living-room. I am as always stricken by how much Bella looks like har father. She has her rabbit in one hand and her blanket in the other, dragging it after her. Her curls is a ruffled mess and she climbs up into my lap. "Morn aunt shinah".

 "Good morning Bella. This is you new nanny Maddie. She is going to look after you when daddy is at work". I tell her.

 Mirabella looks at Madison who smiles at the little girl. "Hi Bella, it is so nice to meet you". Bella jumps down from my lap and hands me her blanket and teddy before walking over to Madison holding out her little hand.

 Madison takes it, shaking it softly. Mirabella smile that big smile she has also inherited from her father. "I like you Madi. You look nice".

 "Thank you Bella. You are a very pretty little girl. And I like you two. I think we are going to be great friends". She says. And I am sure I made a good choice.
