Don't let the monsters in

"You  know, I never took you for Snow White who needed every dwarf at home with you, just to watch TV." Henry was serious. He knew what Josie was up too. She wanted a pity party. Max and Daisy spent way too much time with her. Sure she fed them and was always generous, but Josie seemed to need a fan club with her, where-ever she went. "Just go, this one time, see what Teen Moms is all about."

He handed over the flyer he'd found at the counselor's office. "You're lucky, so lucky. This school bends over backwards to keep teen moms in school. Its just, you, haven't even talked to the school counselor, have you?" There was even a nursery here. Of course, it might be a whole new concept in Living Skills, but he wanted Josie to stop slacking off.

She gave him a pout as she looked over the meeting schedule.

"I'll even go with you." He looked her in the eye.

"Why?" She glared right back.

"I think its important. I know you don't want to go alone." Henry told her. He knew Derrick's schedule, and it might be awkward for Topher. They walked toward class.

"You know, I always thought of you as more of the Joan of Arc type. Like nothing could stop you. Maybe a young Kate Beckinsale who could kick anyone's butt." He smiled at her.

She smiled back. He supposed it was a go ahead. He hoped.
