Leo waited on the couch the next morning for Becca to walk up. He heard the door open.  But looked disappointed seeing it was just April. He sighed and slumped back onto the couch.

“morning Leo.  What's with the grumpy face?” April greeted him looking over the behind the couch.

“I just found out Becca is leaving in a week and wouldn't tell me.”

“oh I see….well….”

Leo looked over surprised as Becca stood beside her. “Uhhh…”

“I didn't tell you cause I know you be upset…” Becca answered looking and the her feet.

Leo stood up and walked over. He then hugged her. “sure I would have been upset. But I wish you would have told me sooner.”

Becca's eyes watered and a little.  “I'm sorry…”

Leo gently lifted her chin and brushed off her tears smiling. “don't cry. I don't want my princess told cry.”

She blushed a little and smiled.

“I guess we should enjoy each other's company before you leave.”

“what should we do?”

“space hero's?”

“let's!”

April sighed and smiled. “I'll make some popcorn.”

“extra butter!” Leo and Becca both said at the same time. They looked at each other and chuckle. Than went and sat together on the couch with April and started to enjoy the last week together.
