I stood in the kitchen of Emily and Sam's house, completely divoid of conversation. Emily's eyes were puffy from the tears that she shed as soon as I appeared in the door. My face was hard, stone, and unmoving. Emily and I had just gotten a call a few hours ago saying that Claire and Aubrey would be under the care of us. I was the god-mother of Claire, and Emily was the god-mother of Aubrey. Meaning that I was now fully responsible for her.

" Where are the girls?" I asked, looking in my sister's eyes. It was the two of us in the house- Emily said Sam was off at the First Beach with his friends. That honestly shocked me because he should be here for his wife after she just lost a family member.

" They're at Sue's house." Sue was our Aunt. I could remember my cousins faintly- Leah and Seth. Leah and I were close when we were younger. We both grew up though, and I moved. I haven't spoken to her in a while though.

" I'll go get them." I mumbled, grabbing my keys off the counter. She nodded and sat back in her chair, wiping the remaining tears off her face.
