Carpenters - Round 14
Edward knew how attached Marshall was to the dogs, so he felt horrible. Patting Marshall on the arm, he attempted to reason with Marshall. "You know your Mom hasn't been feeling well since she's about to have another baby. She can't take care of everyone. I've found a really good home for them. Mr. Das said we can visit whenever we want..."
"It's not fair!" Marshall cried as he ran to his room.
Edward sighed. Now he just needed to tell Audrey his decision...
"Babies are dumb," Marshall pouted.
Audrey made a stern face, "Is that very nice, Marshall?"
Marshall hung his head and mumbled, "I guess not..."
Audrey stood up and kissed Marshall on the head. "Finish up breakfast and get ready for school."
Manuel smiled and handed over $1600. "I grew up with poodles just like these, it will be nice to have a full house again."
Audrey sighed as Manuel walked away with the dogs. She heard Fifi whine behind her and leaned down to pat her on the head. "I'm sorry girl. I'll miss them, too. It's just too much of a full house..."
The next morning...
"I know. Time certainly flies by!" Edward replied as he snuggled Angela. "You're a big girl now!"
