A Flame Rekindled
| Anela saw Scott's father walking in her direction. This was strange. How had he known she was working at school on this Saturday? She could see by the look on his face that he desperately needed to talk to someone.
"I told Scott...and he...Oh, what am I going to do?" He burst into the classroom and started babbling incoherent fragments.
"What's going on? Take a deep breath, and slow down. Explain things to me."
"I just can't handle things like this anymore. I know I need to be strong for Scott, but I just can't....I don't know...He's going to be put up for adoption!" He spoke the awful truth, it was revealed at last.
"Oh...um, I don't know what to say!"
"You think I'm a horrible person, and you see me in a totally different light?"
"No, I think you're doing this with Scott's best interest in mind. I'll be glad to help him with the transition."
"I guess that's the reason you're the first person I went to, well, with the exception of Scott. I don't want to let him go, but I know I need to do something."
"Actually, I truly admire you. There is a huge mountain looming before you, and you're trying to find ways to cope."
"Yes, but am I doing the right thing?" Anela didn't know what the solution would be. How could she help her distraught friend? She had to admit, this didn't change the way she felt about him. She still loved him as much as ever. That wouldn't change, no matter what decision he made.
