Hey everybody! Sorry it's been a while on this, I've been so busy, writing other fan fiction and whatnot.. Mainly studying for exams coming up next week! *squeaks* But, I'm sure I'll do fine. But after that, I probably won't update for about a month, because I'll be home for Christmas break, and I won't be on my computer much. If you'd like to contact me, PM me or send me a DM on Instagram, bonnieparker1930. Yes, it is a Bonnie Parker role-play account, don't judge me XD. So, on with Chapter 5 of A Home For Addie!
"Now, breakfast?" Laura asked an almost asleep Addie, who looked up.
"Mommy, can we have pancakes?" Laura nodded.
"Chocolate chip?" Addie nodded excitedly,
"Can I call Brooklynn now?" The two walked into the kitchen, Addie perched on Laura's hip. She set her down on a barstool right behind the stove and gathered the ingredients for homemade chocolate chip pancakes. She handed Addie the phone and dialed the number. Brooklynn's mother answered.
"Hello," she said.
"Hi, Mrs. French, it's Addie, is Brooklynn there?"
"Well, hi there Addie! And yes she is, let me go get her." There was a long pause, then Brooklynn came to the phone.
"Hey, Addie.. What's up?"
"Nothing, what's up with you?"
"You woke me up," she sounded rather annoyed. "Where are you calling me from?"
"Laura's house. She adopted me, Brooklynn!"
"What?! Miss. Osnes adopted you?! No way! Addie, that's amazing! Gosh, I wish I could hug you right now!" They both giggled.
"I have the coolest bedroom, Brookie!"
"Maybe I could come over and see it.."
"Maybe.. Let me ask her, I'll call you back soon." She hung up the phone as Laura set a big plate of pancakes down in front of her, and sat beside her.
"So, how'd it go?" Laura asked, smiling.
"I think she's excited.." Addie giggled. "Can she come over?" Laura thought about it for a minute, chewing on her pancake, then nodded.
"Sure, maybe Ann could could come over too.." Addie nodded excitedly as she ate another bite of pancake.
"These are good, mommy!" She said with her mouth full. Laura giggled.
"I'm going to go get ready, you call Brooklynn back when you're ready.."
"Mommy, where's daddy?" Laura beamed.
"He's out of town for a few days.." She said, kissing the top of Addie's head as she went to change. Addie called Brooklynn again, and they agreed on a time for the sleepover. Addie got ready and changed, and sat on the couch, curling into Laura's side. She put on Addie's favorite movie, Beauty and the Beast.
"I don't have a show today, or tomorrow.. That's good, right?" Addie nodded.
"Can I go with you one day, mommy?" Laura wrapped her arm around Addie and nodded.
"Maybe on Monday night, if you don't have too much homework.." Addie snuggled into Laura's side, laying her head on her shoulder.
"I love you, mommy…"
"I love you too, baby.." Laura whispered, kissing the top of her daughter's head. Addie sighed happily, then pinched herself to make sure it all wasn't a dream.
"Ouch…" She said, then nodded. "Good, I'm not dreaming." Laura chuckled, scooping her up into her arms as their favorite song came on, waltzing around the room, singing along.
"Tale as old as time,
Song as old as rhyme,
Beauty and the Beast.." Addie giggled, wrapping her arms around Laura's neck as the two continued to dance.
Alrighty! That was it! For now, anyways..
I don't own Laura, or Nate, or their dog.. Or Beauty and the Beast…
Addie: You own me!
Me: *smiles and ruffles her hair* Thanks, squirt.
