Hope Cahill looked at the contracts. She didn't know what to do. But she had to quit, her family depended on it. She had a beautiful child; she didn't want to endanger her.
"It's a hard decision," Arthur said, putting a hand on his wife's shoulder. "But you realize even after you resign, after we resign, she still might be put in danger."
Hope sighed, "I know. Which is why I'm going to train her I'll sign ther up for karate or something."
Arthur raised his eyebrows, "Karate? You really think karate is going to help her?"
"No. Not really."
"Have you asked what the others have done?"
"You mean the Oh's, the Kabra's and everyone else? No not yet. But I'll ask tomorrow, you know how close we are."
"I suppose," Arthur said thoughtfully, "But I think we need to prepare Amy. She needs to be trained, but inconspicuously. You never know, they might come back."
Suddenly they heard heavy foot steps. Isabel Kabra appeared at their door way, panting clutching a toddler.
"Isabel!" Hope cried, "What's wrong! Why are you holding Daniel? Where are Nellie and David?"
Isabel's eyes welled with tears, "They d-d-died i-in a f-ire," she managed to choke out.
"WHAT?" Arthur yelled.
Suddenly Vikram came in, "I just put the children in the play room."
Vikram looked grim, "We were on our way to visit Nellie, and we wanted to ask what she was going to do. But when we pulled up at the house it was ablaze, firemen were running around trying to put it out. They believed that some candles were knocked over, but we knew that it was them. Daniel was the only one who they could rescue, he's still asleep." He chuckled softly, "I just don't know what to do. I don't want to be the one to explain it to him when he wakes up. I was hoping you guys would adopt him, since after all, you're the only family he has left."
Hope was still on the bed, crying with Isabel. Both of them were next to Daniel, who was sleeping soundly, oblivious to the shock he would get when he woke up.
Arthur was standing, his face was like stone.
What were they going to do?
A/N: SHORT but enough to gather your interest I hope!
