"We want Annie to come with us back to Mobius."
"You don't need to ask us permission for that. Take her there's no need for her to stay here." She has no idea.
"You don't understand."
"What do you mean?" She leaned in a little on the table and cocked an eyebrow.
"They can't separate so to take Annie we need to take Angie." Janet and Hector stood still for a moment. Amy and I came up to talk to them.
We were in there small kitchen sitting at the table against the wall on the right from when you come in. The sink and the counter top are up against the wall that is counter clockwise from us with the cabinets resting right over them. It's really just your average kitchen in a small cozy home.
It's almost time for us to leave for home, just two more weeks. I have wanted to talk to them about this for quite sometime. Spending time with Annie and watching Angie's transformation has been a thrill. I want them to equally have a chance to enjoy life and I think the only way is for them to come live with us on Mobius. If they stayed here Annie would almost never have a chance to come out because Janet and Hector think that Annie might distract her. It'll be like she never existed and she actually could disappear if not let out. What they don't seem to realize is that she has helped Angie and vice-versa.
Angie balances her life better and places herself in the game. Annie has shown more common sense and responsibility. Angie is at home with math and science, while Annie is more comfortable in writing and reading. They balance each other out and make a great team. I figured that moving them to Mobius would give them a fresh start. Let them combine there talents to help them through life. They won't even have to switch bodies just there minds. Still, we wouldn't want Angie to physically disappear either so it'll be safe for to roam around the house just not in public wouldn't want anyone to get suspicious.
"No, no, NO!" Man she can roar when she wants to. "You are not taking my baby."
"Calm down Janet it's not like we're kidnapping her or anything. And she doesn't even have to leave this summer." Amy spoke up.
"Even so, no," There was a certain flame in her eyes that reminded me of Amy's when she got aggravated. "What good would it do? Her family and friends are here, the sanctuary is here, her school is here, the choir program that she loves is here, and the LIFE that she has lived is here. You can't take her away from the only home she's had."
"Have no idea of what good it'll do her and Annie. Think about it, a new start, she can finally live like a teenager in school should."
"But she's no ordinary girl and neither is Annie."
"True but could get as close as they could get. And hey you wouldn't hear Angie complaining about Crystal kicking her in her sleep." As it turns out, Angie and Crystal share a bed during the school year. Not their best idea.
"But Crystal would miss her, we'll all miss her, miss her enough to cry. And not to mention that the animals will know something went wrong.
"Angie can visit any time. We'll even come here for every winter, spring, and summer break."
"Which brings me to this, what kind of high school would they attend?" She's actually counting Annie too. Maybe this will be easier than I thought.
Amy took care of that. "Way ahead of you, I've already got a spot for them in one of the best high schools Mobius has to offer. It's a done deal for any year that they transfer to it."
"How," she looked pained.
"We saved the school from Egg man once and the principal promised us one favor."
"So they didn't get in on their own. I don't like the sound of that." She always was skeptical on every thing we did. I can tell that she doesn't trust us all too well. She won't relax until she knows that Angie will be perfectly fine.
"Believe me this school will challenge them but they'll be fine."
"Well," her eyebrows went forward as she struggled to find something that would keep Angie here. "What about choir?" She had a face of victory on her but we know what she could do for that. Annie likes to sing but she doesn't want to turn it into work so it'll just be Angie on that one.
I answered that one. "Every year around this time there are tryouts for a group of local kids. It's a show choir and they do all sorts of music."
"What would they have her do for the try outs?"
"They'll see how high and how low she can go, if she can follow choreography well enough, and if she'll have fun with it and bring the music to life for the audience. And even if she doesn't make it her high school has a good choral program that will definitely accept her."
She bit her lip and it looked like she was about to cry. I'm sure she wasn't prepared to let her go so soon. She would have let her stay through college. And to tell you the truth, Amy and I would have too if she wanted to. But of course over the years and with Annie there they'll be bold enough to go off on their own.
"And what about the planet," for the first time in that conversation Hector spoke.
"She said that she gave you two communicators to tell her if there was trouble that she wasn't aware of." They took a look at their wrists. Janet had on a simple charm bracelet with a heart, a half note, a soccer ball, and a dolphin all in silver while Hector had on a thick watch that had the pattern of the Mexican flag. You know, I don't think that they ever used them at all.
"Okay," I felt relieved at that single word. Then worried when she said, "On one condition," we waited, "Each time they're here only Angie is to be out at all times." Seems a bit drastic but I'd agree to anything she said if they could come with us. "Is it okay if she leaves next summer?"
"Yes, of course. I know that this could be hard on her grandparents and would take them sometime," Amy said with sympathy clearly detected.
Well it has been done. Next summer they'll be living on Mobius. I just wonder what else life has in store for me and everyone else.
There you have it. The story has come to an end. If you'd like a continuation just ask, otherwise I'll decide.
But, any who thank you for reading up to the very end. I love you all and I hope that you have enjoyed it. Until next time, late.
