What A Surprise!
“Well, I’m gonna go get a cupcake.” Kristoff said, raising to his feet.
“So, do you think Rebecca’s petition worked?” Annika asked her sister.
“Mommy definitely seemed to be considering the idea when we gave it to her. I really hope she listens to it, though! It would be so good for Eli, and Kristoff, too!” Jess said hopefully and Annika nodded her head.
“Kristoff I already told you, ask mommy if you can have a third cupcake and then I’ll give you one.” Jess told her little brother. “But, she’s probably busy!” Kristoff protested. “Kristoff, just go ask her!” Jess ordered.
“What’s goin’ on?” Eli asked Annika who shrugged her shoulders. She was just as clueless as he was.
After a few minutes, Riven-Delle came in the room with a huge smile on her face. “Annika, Jess! It worked! The petition we all signed, you know? Mommy listened to it!” Riven-Delle said so quickly that it was hard for Annika and Jess to understand what was going on.
“Oh, my gosh!! A new brother AND sister?! We expected a brother, but oh my, what a surprise to get another sister, too!!” Annika squealed. “My name is Annika, and this is Elijah, but we call him Eli, and there’s Kristoff and Jess.” Annika continued, pointing to each one.
“It’s nice to meet you! I’m Julie and I’m 12. I heard about the petition you all signed for mommy to get Eli another brother. That was really nice of you guys!” Julie said with a smile. Eli smiled broadly in shock when he heard this. Only a few weeks ago, Eli had been wanting a brother more his own age. He had told Riven-Delle about it, so he guessed that she must have told everyone else. He was so blown away and extremely appreciative to all his sisters.
“Hey, Eli! Hi Kristoff! You already know this, but my name is Dallas. I’m 10.” Dallas introduced himself to his new brothers.
“Hi.” Kristoff said shyly.
“I love video games! Hey, lemme show you my little bedroom corner, as I like to call it. You’ll probably be sharing with me now!” Eli said excitedly.
“So where do you come from, Julie?” Annika asked her new sister. “I lived at an orphanage in San Francisco. Dallas was there too!” Julie replied.
“Oh, how magnifique (mah-nyee-feek)! I’ve always wanted to visit San Francisco! Have you gone across the bridge?” Riven-Delle wondered.
“Oh, yeah! I’ve gone across the bridge a few times!” Julie said with a smile. She was happy that someone was interested in what she had to tell about San Francisco.
“So, how did mommy come to adopt you?” Jess asked.
Julie smiled and said, “Well, as she was waiting to meet with Dallas, I was sitting right next to her, waiting to meet some other people who wanted to adopt me, but that didn’t end up working out. Anyways, her and I were talking a lot, and well, we just felt a special connection. So after she had spoken with Dallas, she talked to me some more, and asked if I’d like to come live with her. And I agreed whole-heartedly!” Annika sighed. “That is so sweet! I’m so glad you came to live with us, Julie!”
Riven-Delle placed her arm around Julie and said, “I am, too! Well, we should all go in the living room with the others and get to know Julie and Dallas a little
