Chapter 2: Goodbye
“…okay, I just need you to sign these forms, and you’ll be all set Mrs. Manning.”
I tried one last chance, “Mommy, please don’t go! I’ll be good from now on I promise!”
Miss Samantha caught my gaze, “Yes you will young man, from this point on.”
I looked pleadingly back at my mother, who I could see was almost about to break. She wanted to come back and get her little boy.
“Don’t worry Miss Manning, he’s in good hands.”
I saw tears forming in my mother’s eyes, and she handed my suitcase to Miss Samantha.
I started to cry as my mom walked away. Miss Samantha put a soothing hand on my back and guided me in the house.
“It’ll be okay Chris.”
