We bumped into them at the mall. Amber was pregnant than ever. Adam looked very tired.
"Oh, hey Mickey. It's been a while."
"Yeah," he said, "it has."
It was uncomfortable talking to them. But they eventually left.
"Why are we here again?"
"I have a surprise for you," said Mickey. He closed my eyes with his hands and lead me to some shop. It smelled horrible and dogs were barking. The pet store. Mickey placed something warm and fuzzy in my arms.
"Okay," he said.
I opened my eyes. It was a small beagle puppy, with innocent big brown eyes.
"I couldn't," I said to Mickey.
"Oh yes you can. I paid for him. And look at his little face."
I stared at him. I smiled.
"Thanks soooo much, Mickey."
I kissed him.
"What's his name gonna be?" asked Mickey.
"Bubba. In honor of my old dog."
Mickey smiled. We bought some dog food and some toys and took Bubba to our car. Mickey dropped me off at my house.
"Hey, mom!" I called.
My mom came out, paint smeared on her apron.
I showed her Bubba and let him out of his cage.
"Aww, how cute is he?"
"Mickey bought him for me."
"Well, that was sweet. We have Bubba's little bed in the garage. What did you name him?"
She laughed. I went in the garage and got the box which held all of Bubba's things. I took them up in my room.
"Here you go little guy."
I placed his bed near my bed and the little puppy climbed in. I placed the blanket over his little body. He fell asleep. I placed some water and kibble in a bowl near him, so when he woke up, he would get something to eat. I smiled. I laid down on my bed.
Someone called. It was Heather.
