Ariel lifted her eyelids open as the sun rays via the window curtains kissed her face. She rose up from her bed and looked at the clock on the wall in front of her. it said six-thirty two. She walked out of her room and went inside Melody's room.
"Melody? Wake up," Ariel softly patted her on the shoulder. Melody rose from her bed very groggily.
"Good morning, sweetie!" Ariel said, cheerfully.
"Good morning," said Melody. She stretched her arms. Meanwhile, Eric was walking in toward Melody's room to wake her up. He was surprised to see that Ariel had already woken Melody up. He smiled, relieved...
After Ariel waved goodbye to Eric and Melody, she carefully crossed the street to meet up with her brother. Her sandy-colored haired brothers was holding a carton of milk that he bought from the Deli.
"Ariel, what was going on? Who was that man you were talking to?" Flounder asked.
"I was trying to save his daughter," Ariel explained.
"Really?" Flounder asked.
"It's a long story," said Ariel. As they walk away from the Deli, Ariel told Flounder the details of the story such as saving Melody, standing up to Eric, and a dinner with them. When she finished, Flounder was amazed. That was a...
Normally, Eric would be in his office, working on countless papers for his boss. But last night, after he put the nanny advertisement on the newspaper, he had requested a day off on Saturday from his boss thus he could find a nanny for Melody. His boss agreed and hoped to have him back at work soon. Now Saturday came and everybody read Eric's advertisement. Many nanny candidates showed up at Eric's house. The Interviews took place in the living room. While Eric was sure to hire a nanny, Melody was not thrilled.
I don't know why Daddy is doing this! I don't want...
Despite Ariel's assurance, Melody still hated the idea of not having a mother. Why doesn't she have a mother? How come other kids have two parents while she has one? Mind you, not that she doesn't like her dad-no she loves him! Melody still yearns for someone who will read stories to her and kiss daddy when he comes home.
"You don't know what happened to your mother?" Ariel asked.
Melody shook her head. "No, I don't know what happened to her."
Ariel didn't press anymore to the subject. Melody must have a been a baby when a tragedy struck her mother. Silence filled the whole room, only...
Later at 8pm, when Eric walked out the office, he only wondered one thing. How am I going to tell Melody? I don't want to disappoint her. But I don't want to disappoint my boss, either! Despite Roy's answer, he thought of asking Walt anyway. No, it would not make much a difference. Eric know how loyal Walt is to the Red Rabbit Company-after all, he was the one who built it. Walt would say the same answer. He sighed dejectedly, got inside his jeep, and drove away. Little did he know, two pairs of yellow eyes were watching him, behind from a silver Saturn.
"Melody, wake up," said Eric as he patted his five-year-old daughter on the arm.
"Five more minutes, Daddy," Melody yawned.
"But Melody today is your first day at your new school. If you don't get up, you'll be late," Eric responded.
"I don't want to go to school today!" said Melody.
"Melody, get out of bed right now or I'll spank you," Eric firmly stated.
Melody's eyes went wide and quickly got out of bed. Eric left while she got dressed. She took her pink pajamas off and tossed them on her bed. Then, Melody slowly put her on her outfit on. She dressed slowly since she did not want to...
