Raine

I woke up to my phone ringing and Wes' tired voice. "Answer your phone. It's been going off for hours now," Wesley said groggily. I reached over to my nightstand and looked at my phone. 14 missed calls from Mabel. Mabel? Why is she calling me? I called her back and laid down. I was surprised when Aria picked up the phone. "Hey sweetie," I said. Aria was crying and I could barely understand what she was saying. "Slow down...what's going on?" I asked, sitting up now. "Mommy...she sleepin in da tub for days," she told me between cries. Omg. Omg. "I'll be right there," I said. "Auntie Marnie comin," she said. "Alright...I'll be there as fast as I can," I said, then ended the call. I got up and quickly put on shoes. "What's going on? Where are you going?" Wesley asked, sounding alarmed. "Something's wrong with Mabel. Aria just called," I told him and then ran out. Matilda poofed me to the house. Marnie opened the door before I could knock. I walked in and looked around. "What happened?" I asked. "Mabel drowned in the tub. They found pills and alcohol in her body," she said. Aria ran over and hugged me. Poor Aria. She lost both of her parents. I picked her up and held her. "I'm so sorry, sweetheart. It's going to be okay," I reassured her. She was sobbing uncontrollably. That is not a scene I'd wish on anyone to witness. Especially not a three year old toddler. Marnie sent me a thought. ~ who's going to raise her? ~ That was exactly the issue I was trying to analyze. ~ idk...i can do it...should we leave it up to her to decide? ~ I sent back. ~ idk....raven's not an option...tatum's not an option...i'm not an option....it's between you and magdalena ~ she thought to me. I kissed Aria's head and rubbed her back. ~ i'll speak to magdalena about it, then. thank you for helping ~ I told her. "Deep breaths, Aria. You're going to be just fine," I said.
