Welcome Home Mayleen ♡
"Levi! Kingston! Please put your attention back to decorating and stop monkeying around!" I scolded them. "Awe c'mon ma! We just tryna have some fun," He said slapping Kingston's neck. Kingston laughed and nodded. "Yeah Kay, just chill. I promise we'll have the whole place decorated when you get back."
I sighed and walked into the Kitchen where Mama J, Chris and Dany had been helping cook. "Drake and I are about to leave to the airport, can you guys please make sure those two aren't creating too much chaos?" Dany laughed at my worriedness. "Kay, everything will be just fine. Now stop hallucinationating and go get that girl!" Her hands pushed me to the door, as Drake came down the stairs.
"Okay, but let me just go help them put up the sign. It'll only take me a few minutes. Dany shook her head. "No. Go now. Get out." Shoving me out the door she started laughing. "Goodbye you two."
We waved as Drake pulled the car out the drive way and down the street. "Oh my god baby, Im so nervous. I haven't felt this since finding out I was pregnant with Levi. I hope she likes us. What if she hates us?" Chuckling, Drake put his hand over mine.
"She won't, everything will be fine. Just calm down before you give yourself a heart attack." I smiled nervously and looked out the window.
It seemed like it took us forever to get to the airport. Drake pulled into a parking space and got out. I followed behind him, nervously biting my lip. "This is it baby." He said kissing my forehead as we walked inside.
My arm found its way around his and we patiently waited at the Montego Bay, Jamaica exit. A few people came out, then a white woman with a young girl—Mayleen. "Are you Mrs. and Mr. Graham?"
Drake and I nodded and smiled. Mayleen smiled too and stared at her shoes. "Hi, Im Ms. Saratago the social worker that you talked to on the phone." She said shaking our hands. "Oh Hello, how are you?"
"Im just fine. Im really happy for you two. I know your going to be nothing but the best parents." I nodded.
"Yes we have a child of our own, he's seventeen." Her smile widened. "How great, she has another sibiling. I hope everything goes well between them. But let me stop holding you up, the Social Services office will call you to locate one here in California for you and I have a plane to catch." She said hugging our new edition before grabbing her bags, and heading off to the other side of the airport.
"You ready to go?" Drake asked her. She nodded as we helped her with her bags and we were off to the car. The drive home was quiet until I decided to break it. "So, Mayleen.. Do you like LA?" I asked kind of nervously. She smiled and nodded. "Its beautiful."
"I think you'll like it here. You know, make some friends. Oh I can't wait for you to meet King and Safiyah. You guys are gonna be indestructible."
"Are those your other kids?" I shook my head. "Their my best friends girls. By the way, your really pretty." Her cheeks turned pink. "Thank you."
When we got back to the house, my nerves were jumping everywhere. I hoped everybody kept their word like they said. Drake put the key in the door and in we walked. Everyone came from various places in the foyor. "Welcome Home Mayleen!" Everyone screamed.
"Heeey! She's not a baby!" Haven yelled. "Daaaamn!" King C and Kingston said.
