Once they were all inside, I knelt down to J.
"Tell me." I said, looking into her tear stained eyes.

I did what I could.
I hugged her tight and told her I would be there.
I would be there to listen.
I would be there to hug.
I would be there.
She pulled her face out of my blouse.
Looking up at me, she weakly squeaked out, "Okay." as she forced a half curved smile.
Now... to put out of my mind who will be there for her when these 15 and a half school days are over.
