Yaaay this is my new story that im working now, don't worry i'll finish the others that I've started very soon, but yeah this is my first part so feel free to comment and tell me what you think, so read and enjoy!!
REX: WHO ARE TELLIN TO GET OUT! I LIVE HERE AS WELL I GOT EVERY RIGHT TO STAY!
JODIE: DON'T MAKE ME TELL YOU AGAIN REX! JUST GET OUT BEFORE I CALL THE POLICE. As soon Jodie said that, there was a silence between the two. Rex glared at Jodie.
Rex: What did you say?
Jodie: You heard me Rex, I'm calling the police, if you don't get out.
Rex: What?! your really gonna call the police on me Jodie..
With that Jodie exploded into rage.
Jodie: REX GET OUT!!
With that Rex took a hint and headed towards the door, the last thing he didn't want was the police to come as he already had a string of convictions, the last thing he didn't want was to get sent down again.
Rex: I'LL BE BACK JODIE...YOU WATCH!!
And with that he slammed the door behind him.
In the next room, a young toddler called Madison Schmit was howling, she desparatley wanted some attention and as usual nobody ever paid her any. Not even her own mother Jodie, she hated when her mother and step father argued.
As it always created bad tension around the house and her mother would always be in a bad mood. Meanwhile in the Tanner household, a bored Leiko Tanner lounged on the couch. She stared into space and sighed she bored and frustated as she had nothing to do, she appeared to have a day off work and part her wished that she was at work. Half the time she buried herself in her work and would work day and night.
She worked a researcher at simcity industries. She was rich and successful, yet deep down inside she felt as if something was missing from her life. She had no family her parents died when she was young and no brothers or sisters nor a husband or boyfriend part of her hated to admit it but she was lonely.. A few hours, Leiko sat on the computer talking to her friend Bonnie Lanford, as she had nothing better to do, she also decided to surf the web. As it was her only time to, as most of the time she was either working or to busy. Then suddenly something caught her eye. 'Adoption focus'. Leiko stared at the add on the computer and out of curiousity clicked on it. It was a website about fostering and adoption. She glanced at the information on the webpage and was quite intrigued by what she saw and carried on looking on the webpage. She then came across some contact details, she looked at the number and wrote it down. After looking at the website, Leiko went over to the phone and dialed the number. She suddnely began to get nervous, what am I doing? she thought.
She was tempted to quickly put the phone down and forget all about it, as heard she dial tone ring out. Then suddenly she heard a voice down at the other end. Voice:Good Afternoon SimCity Adoption Agency how may I help you?
Their was silence down the other end as Leiko struggled to get the words out.
Leiko: Erm..Hi...I was wondering if I could get some information about adopting.
Voice: Yeah sure, Ill put you through to one of our social workers and she will tell you everything you need to know.
While back at the Schmit household, Jodie was about to get a surprise visitor as she heard the doorbell ring. Jodie walked outside to come face to face with Madison's social worker Wilma Johnson. Jodie's face became distorted when she saw her.
Jodie: WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE she yelled.
Wilma: Jodie, I believe you know why I'm here..I'm...
Wilma suddenly found herself cut off by an angry Jodie.
Jodie: YOU CAN'T JUST TURN LIKE THIS ! GET OUTTA HERE!
Wilma: Jodie listen to me, we had an agreement with the courts you have to let me check up on Madison or you will lose her again, and by yelling at me is not helping the situation.
Wilma was trying her best to calm Jodie down but she was having none of it.
Jodie: I DON'T CARE JUST GET OUTTA HERE MADISON IS FINE!
Wilma: Jodie, will you please step aside so I can check up on Madison please?
Jodie was refusing to move and the two continued to have a stand off.
Wilma: I'll be back, but believe me this is your last chance, after that Madison will be taken off you for good.
With that Wilma left.
This wasn't the first time Madison had been taken off Jodie it had been a few times, her other child as well had been taken off her as well her son 7 year old Jase. Meanwhile Leiko had invited her friend Bonnie round after work as she two worked together at SimCity industries.
The two gossiped away when Leiko suddenly asked Bonnie something.
Leiko: Bonnie..I need your advice on something..
Bonnie looked at her friend puzzled.
Bonnie: Mmm sure hun what is it? Leiko took a deep breath.
Leiko: Well...recently Ive been thinking and yano..I wanna adopt
Bonnie looked at Leiko in a surprise
Leiko: What?..You think its...
Bonnie:Nooo... Im just a bit stunned that's all I never thought you would want children.
There was a silence between the two friends as neither of them knew what to say.
Bonnie: What's made you wanna adopt hun?
Leiko thought for a moment.
Leiko: I guess...well yano life is kinda passing me by and that the last thing I want is to be alone hun, plus this be a whole new challenge for me.
Bonnie: Challenge?! your making it sound like a game
Leiko: You know what I mean Bonnie, plus I could just see how it goes hun. Bonnie: Okay hun, well it's not gonna be easy that's for sure.
Leiko: I no, but I'll take it by step by step.
Bonnie: Well, if you need me, I'm always around to help
Leiko: Thanks Bonnie
And with that the two left it at that. A few nights later Madison was left screaming in her crib as per usual, as her mother Jodie was asleep she paid no attention to her young daughters crying and ignored her. Meanwhile a blue car parked up outside the trailer. Jodie was then waken up, by a social worker. Jodie:Who are you? An what are you doing in my house?
Social Worker: I'm a social worker, I've had a complaint made about you and for that I'm taking your children Madison and Jase out of the house.
Jodie:WHATT!! YOU CAN'T JUST TAKE THEN THERE MY KIDS!! AND WHERE ARE THEY GOING!!
Social Worker: They will be placed in care for now.
With that the Social worker walked off and went to go and get the children. She picked up Madison.
Social Worker: It's ok sweetie, your safe now.
She then escorted Madison to the car. Jodie could only watch on as her children were taken out off the house she, she didn't know where to look. She felt tears in her eyes. She ran outside and take one last glimpse of her children as they where both in the car, the next thing she knew the car then drove out of site. Jodie ran back into the house, she felt tears streaming down her cheeks.
What have I done? she thought. A few days later, Leiko heard the phone ring and answered it.
Voice: Hello, this is SimCity Adoption Agency, is this Leiko Tanner?
Leiko: Erm.. Yeah
Voice: Good. Are you interested in fostering a child for a while?
Leiko was stunned she didn't know what to say she didn't think it would be this soon. There was a silence she didn't know what to say.
Leiko: Erm... Yeah sure
Voice: Is, it ok we drop the child around tomorrow at about 10am and a social worker will go through the details with you?
Leiko: WAHHH TOMORROW??
Voice : Yes, why it's there a problem with tomorrow.
Leiko: Erm..Nooooo sure tomorrow ..that's fine.
Voice: Good we will see you tomorrow then.
They next morning, Leiko was in the kitchen making herself pancakes for breakfast, she was extremely nervous about today. What was I thinking she thought? Apart of her thought maybe this adoption and fostering thing was a bad idea she didn't feel ready yet and she had no idea what she was in for. After breakfast she stood by the window looking out for them she tried to compose herself. It's gonna be ok she thought. A few minutes later, Leiko saw a blue car pull up and woman get out the car with a small child in her arms. Leiko walked out to meet them. Leiko walked over to the car.
Social Worker: Hi you must be Leiko Tanner
Leiko: Yeah thats me.
Social Worker: Good, here I want you to meet Madison.
Leiko looked down at the small child, she watched her she crawled towards her.
Social Worker: Anyways another social worker will proberly pay you visit during the week, to see how your getting on as it's your first time fostering.
But anyways have fun.
Leiko: Oh ok thanks.
Social Worker: Ok, Now Madison you be good Leiko. Social Worker: Anyways she's all yours
With that the social worker smiled and walked back to the car.
Leiko held the small child in her arms, she was adorable Leiko thought.
Leiko: Well looks like it's just me and you.
