Requested by @cherieann-2001 :Opie story where I work at the school and take Kenny and Ellie under my wing after Donna dies. I help take care of them and they try to set me and their dad up on a date. Happy ending please
AN: I’m sorry about how long this is…..who am I kidding! I have no remorse!
It had been a long exhausting week, I was so glad it was Friday. I get through today, then it was spring break. Not that I had any plans, but I could sleep late and relax.
I sat at my desk with my cup of coffee, gathering my thoughts before the school day started. I closed my eyes, taking a deep breath in, and then releasing it, the sounds of children playing outside filling my ears.
There was a quiet knock on my door, I opened my eyes slowly. Smiling when I saw the Winston children standing there. “Ms. (Y/L/N)?” Ellie asked quietly.
“What’s up guys?” I had been Ellie’s teacher last year, and after her mom was killed earlier this year, she and Kenny had latched on to me as a mother figure.
My heart went out to the both of them, so I didn’t push them away. I knew they’d had a hell of a time, and needed all the love they could get. “Dad, didn’t give us any lunch money….”
“Come on in, let’s get you guys some lunch packed. If you haven’t had breakfast, you know where I keep the breakfast foods.” Their dad needed a wake up call, I knew he was having a tough time adjusting to being a single parent, but this was ridiculous.
