"Girls! Where's my hairdryer?!"
"GUYS!! WE'RE OUT OF BANANAS!"
"YO WHO LEFT THE STOVE ON?"
"AHHH LAUREN PUT ON SOME CLOTHES!"
"GET OUT OF MY ROOM MANI!"
"DINAH GO LOCK THE FRONT GATE PLEASE! AND GET THE MAIL!"
"Okay Als!" I shouted from downstairs, grabbing my coat. It was raining outside. I put on my coat and headed outside, jogging towards the gate. I quickly got the mail and rolled my eyes at all the coupons we received. Of course we'd have coupons to Taco Bell. I turned around to lock the gate and froze when I heard something else.
Something other than the rain drops and thunder.
God dammit I heard crying.
I looked around the gate and gasped when I saw a baby laying on the floor, crying his little eyes out. He was in a fucking basket. I looked side ways to see if anyone was with him but the driveway was empty.
"Oh my god." I whispered, picking up the basket. I locked the gate quickly and ran into the house.
"GUYS GET YOUR ASSES DOWN HERE NOW!" I shouted as I put the basket down in the middle of the living room. The baby boy was sniffling now, hiccuping every now and then. I took off my coat and checked if he was cold or anything.
"I'M CHANGING HERE!"
"I'M ORDERING BANANAS!"
"DRYING MY HAIR!"
"GET YOUR ASSES DOWN HERE NOW!" I shouted louder and finally Normani appeared.
"What is it this time?" She asked and I pointed at the baby boy in the basket. "Where did he come from?"
"Found him by the gate, poor thing was crying." I crouched down in front of the basket and rubbed his little nose. He giggled at me with an open wide smile. He didn't even have his teeth. He was just a baby. Hell, I doubt he's 2 months old by this state. I gently picked him up and was surprised at how light he was. Most babies were chubby, not like this.
"Awww poor boy's shivering." I cooed, bouncing him up and down. He giggled at me and just stared at me with his hazel eyes.
"Okay, what is it?" The rest of the girls appeared and they all stared at the baby in my arms.
"What in the world?" Ally walked towards me and placed a hand on the baby's back. "His clothes are damp."
"He was out in the rain, he was left in a basket, he must've been abandoned." I said with a frown.
"There's a note." Lauren commented, picking up a note from the basket. She opened it and we watched her read it out loud. "To little Elliot, I hope you'll be happy with a new family. A better one. I'm sorry I couldn't raise you. Love, your grandmother." We were all shocked and confused at this point. "And then there's a bunch of stuff about him, like his birthdate which was a little over 2 months ago."
"Well...what now?" Camila asked looking at all of us. We stayed quiet before hearing a little cry which made us all look at Elliot who was in my arms.
"I guess he stays for the night until we can figure something out." Lauren said and we all nodded in agreement.
"Ummm, who else smells something." Normani said, covering her nose. I looked at Elliot who was crying and cringed.
"He needs a hella diaper change." I said with a gag as I placed him in Ally's arms.
"You're the one with the siblings." She placed him back in my arms and I put him in Lauren's arms.
"You have the goddaughters." I commented.
