Chapter 18: She's More than Just the Teacher
(by NativeRose, added on 29 May 2004 05:25 AM)

The next day, Anela stepped out of the lashing rain into her apartment. She was cold, hungry and tired...talk about tired. What a day! Sierra had two seizures, Zachary was sent home with the flu, Jenna ran into a desk and would have a bruised eye for awhile, and Isaac and Rosalyn fought over a blue crayon. Now she was home...wherever that was. Anela's parents refused to speak to her; they weren't happy with her choice of career. The fact that their daughter would even think about working with students with disabilities was beyond them. They didn't want anything to do with her. She had been excluded throughout high school, and all of her college acquaintances had moved on, and they were just that, acquaintances. She was alone, except for her students. Just then, the phone rang, and a welcome voice met her greeting.
"Hi, Anela. Are you available this evening?" Kyle asked when she picked up the phone.
"Yes, I don't have anything going on."
"Okay, I have a surprise for you. I'll pick you up around 6:30. Don't worry about dressing up, you're fine in your teacher outfit."
"Okay, I'll see you then." Anela smiled as she prepared for the evening festivities, whatever they might be. She had no idea what was in store; all she could do was wait for Kyle to arrive.
