“I was so worried about you. When you called… -I didn’t even know what to think.” the lady said in a rush as the little girl watched her mother break down and cry for the very first time.
Madison Cooper-Torres let go of the little girl’s hand as she hugged back her best friend, Evangeline McIntire-Shepard. They haven’t seen each other in years but the bond that they shared was still as strong as ever. Eva led Maddie and her daughter to the living room and ordered the helper to get them drinks. Just as they were about to sit down, a little boy walked over to them, teddy bear in hand. He took one look at the guests and quickly hid behind Eva. “Who is she?” he whispered as he eyed the little girl warily.
Eva smiled at her only son before he nudged him forward, towards the little girl.
“Son, this is Michelle. Michelle, meet my son, Errole.”
