| "But there's one thing I have to do before I put my worries aside," Anela suddenly thought to herself.
Hastily, she got dressed. Then she found Sierra's telephone number and dialed it.
"Hello?" Sierra's light voice sounded cheerful when she answered the call.
"Hi, Sierra, it's Anela Peterson!" Anela said, trying to sound cheery. "How are you, sweetie?"
"Oh, i'm pretty good! I just talked to Autumn!" Sierra said excitedly.
"Did you? That's so wonderful, Sierra!"
"I know. We had fun," Sierra told her.
"I bet you did," Anela answered. "Listen, Sierra, I was wondering if you wanted to do anything special tomorrow, to celebrate your returning."
"Nah," Sierra said solemnly. "It's no big deal."
"No, really," Anela said, "I want to do something for you."
"You don't have to do that," Sierra told her sincerely.
"Honestly, Sierra, please," ANela said, "anything. ANything at all coming to mind?"
"No, not really," Sierra said truthfully.
"I have to do something for you, Sierra. I love you so much, I want this day to be special for you," Anela explained.
"Aw, well, I love you, too, a lot," Sierra replied with feeling.
"Oh, Sierra. Thank you," Anela said, "that was a very sweet thing to say."
"Well, i do." A pause followed. "Well, if you want to do something, why don't we just have a cake, and then the rest of the day can be normal."
"That sounds great, we'll do that," Anela said gratefully.
"Can it be chocolate on chocolate? Completely chocolate?" asked Sierra hopefully.
"Yes," Anela said, "definitely. Well, see you tomorrow, Sierra."
"Good night," Sierra said happily. "Thanks for calling!"
"Bye," Anela said, and hung up.
She ordered the cake--a Dark Chooclate Tort, without rasberies or anything else. just pure chocolate. It was one of her favorites. THen, she walked outside, to wait for Kyle, and a wonderful night at Bambinos, for she would not have to forget her worries. For now, she had no worries.
