The next day...

     I woke up to Ara jumping on my bed at 8:30 am. "Sissy! Sissy! SISSY!"  she shouted.

  " What is it Ara?" I asked.
   She had a big smile plastered on her. 

   " We're getting adopted!" she exclaimed. I couldn't believe it. I smiled from ear to ear.
 
    " That's amazing Ara! But by who?" I replied. She pointed to a drawing I drew of the GT live logo. I beamed.

     " Marissa said to pack our bags!" she exclaimed.

      " That's great sissy! Come on, let's go pack our things," I said, pulling off my covers and carrying her off the bed.

20 minutes later.....

      After showering and packing our things, we heard the doorbell of the orphanage ring. Ara and I ran down the stairs to see if it was Matt and Steph. Obviously, it was. But just Matt.But we were still supposed to be upstairs waiting for them,so we ran back into the room.

   Once we entered the room,there was a knock on the door. As I opened it,I came face to face with Nick,my best friend in the orphanage.

   "Hey,Vira Lana!  I heard you're getting adopted," he said.

    " I'll miss you Nick. I still have your phone number," I said. He smiled.

   " I thought before you leave, maybe you could sing for me one last time, right Pat?" he said as his little brother Pat peeked from behind Nick. Ara hugged him tightly and they hopped onto the bed.

    " What song?" I asked.

    " The greatest, by Sia," he said. Pat and Ara nodded their heads.

  " Sure! " I replied, pressing the song on my phone which I took out of my pocket.

The Greatest

Song by Sia

"Uh-oh, running out of breath, but I
Oh, I, I got stamina
Uh-oh, running now, I close my eyes
Well, oh, I got stamina
And uh-oh, I see another mountain to climb
But I, I, I got stamina
Uh-oh, I need another lover, be mine
Cause I, I, I got stamina

Don't give up, I won't give up
Don't give up, no no no
Don't give up, I won't give up
Don't give up, no no no

I'm free to be the greatest, I'm alive
I'm free to be the greatest here tonight, the greatest
The greatest, the greatest alive
The greatest, the greatest alive

Well, uh-oh, running out of breath, but I
Oh, I, I got stamina
Uh-oh, running now, I close my eyes
But, oh, I got stamina
And oh yeah, running through the waves of love
But I, I got stamina
And oh yeah, I'm running and I've just enough
And uh-oh, I got stamina

Don't give up, I won't give up
Don't give up, no no no
Don't give up, I won't give up
Don't give up, no no no

I'm free to be the greatest, I'm alive
I'm free to be the greatest here tonight, the greatest
The greatest, the greatest alive
The greatest, the greatest alive

Oh-oh, I got stamina
Oh-oh, I got stamina
Oh-oh, I got stamina
Oh-oh, I got stamin-"
I sang,but got interrupted by the door flying open with Matpat outside after clearly listening from the other side of the door.

  " Ahaha, whoops... Vira, I didn't know you could sing... Wow,"  Matpat said, clearly embarrassed by what had happened.

   "Anyways,ready to go girls?" he asked. Ara nodded.

         " See you later Patagator!" she exclaimed and hugged Pat.

    " In a while, Aradile! " he replied,hugging her back. Ara grabbed her bag and ran to Matpat's side.

      " Are you ready Vira?" he asked me. "Give us a sec," I said, pointing at Nick. Matpat nodded.

     " I'll text you later Nickelos Nickerson, " I said.

     "I'll miss you Viral,butnotreally,"  he joked. Matpat looked shocked.

     " It's okay Matt...it's just a joke. It's my YouTube channel name," I said,trying to relieve Matpat of the shock.

    " Ohhh..umm...sorry you two..." he said awkwardly.

     I giggled. Nick hugged me. Normally, I would have hated this and backed away,but I just flinched for one second and hugged him back.

     I grabbed by bag with all my things inside, stopped to hug Marissa and followed Matt downstairs to his car.

        It was finally time to go to a proper home.
