" Oh Ok. " Ash said " Do you have any brothers or sisters? "

" No "

"where are ur parents?"ashley said "My mom died last year and my dad sent me away to a school here but they treated my very badly"she said crying

"There there"ashley said suddenly a thought came into ashleys head 'Maybe mom would let me keep her for a little while and help her out?'

" Um, Ashley " Corey said quietly " She's not a dog it's not that simple as keeping her for awhile "

" I know " Ashley whispered back

"Could you excuse me?" the lil girl said

They hardly noticed here leave but did notice when she didn't come back..
