Melody looked at him hard to see if he's really going to say yes. Ariel waited too, to see what his response would be.

"I-I...can't," Eric winced at his answer. Melody looked like as if her birthday got canceled. No, this couldn't be! Her dad said, 'I can't!' Melody moved a little back from him.

"What? Why?" She half-whispered half-yelled.

"I-I have work and my boss needs me," сказал(-а) Eric. Melody tensed up. Her fists clenched and her teeth gnashed.

"Work? Work! Daddy! That's all I have heard! Work this! Work that! Boss that! What about me! Ты never have time for me!"

"Melody please listen-" Eric pleaded.

"No! Ты listen!" Melody yelled. "You never play with me! Ты never come to my Футбол games или talent shows! I'm getting a funny feeling that Ты care about work еще than me!"

"That's not true!" Eric disagreed. "I do care about you!"

"No, Ты don't! Otherwise, you'd play with me! Ты don't do anything with me at all!" Melody yelled. She really wants him to come to her talent show! Why couldn't he understand that she needs him?

Eric was stunned by Melody's outbursts and refusal to listen (or even understand) his reasons.

"Oh, grow up, Melody!" Eric grumbled.

"Mr. Barnes!" Ariel said, shocked by Eric's words. She was in all shock while this fight was going on. She tried to say something but Eric continued.

"I've been working like a dog every день just so Ты could have an education and not live in the streets!" Since his wife left him, Eric had to work double-shift to support himself and Melody. "I gave Ты toys; I gave Ты food! What еще do Ты want from me!" He mentally winced at how harsh he is sounding. Normally, he would not raise his voice, but his daughter's refusal to hear his reasons were irritating him. Ariel was taken back by Eric. How could he sound so mean? Ariel knew she should stop the fight but how could she when her boss and his daughter were ignoring her?

"Melody! Mr. Barnes! Stop!" But her voice fell on deaf ears.

Tears streamed down from Melody's eyes. Her dad wasn't willing to give up a день at work for her?

"I hate you!" Melody screamed.

Hearing at those words, both Eric and Ariel were taken back. Ariel put her hand over her mouth, while gasping. Eric looked as if he had been slapped in if the face.

I never want to speak Ты ever again!" Melody continued. She ran upstairs to her bedroom and slammed the door. It took a while for the two adults to overcome their shock. Ariel looked at Eric. She noticed that his eyes looked cloudy.

"Mr. Barnes...," she сказал(-а) so softly.

"My boss сказал(-а) no!" Eric barked. "It's not like I have a choice! I don't want to lose my job!"

Ariel tried to think.

"Well..," she said, hesitantly, solemnly. "You have a choice to make."

"What's that?" Eric asked, still angirly.

"See Melody's Показать или go to work," she answered. With that said, Ariel went upstairs.

Eric stayed at the bottom of the staircase and sighed. He knew she was right but the choice was so hard to make. How would he know which one to pick?

Author's Note: Okay, I hope I didn't make Eric или Melody OOC. If I did, I apologize. I wasn't sure whether to have him tell Melody the truth или lie about it but I learned that Eric is an honest type. He doesn't lie very much thus, I decided to write him saying he couldn't come. I was going to write to have Ariel advise Eric to change his work schedule but I don't know if every company does that. I requested my boss to let me change my work hours at my job on campus, but I don't know if a professional man like Eric would have a choice in that. But for the sake of my story, I'll pretend that his boss doesn't let him change his work schedule.

Chapter 4

After Ariel waved goodbye to Eric and Melody, she carefully crossed the улица, уличный to meet up with her brother. Her sandy-colored haired brothers was holding a carton of молоко that he bought from the Deli.

"Ariel, what was going on? Who was that man Ты were talking to?" камбала asked.

"I was trying to save his daughter," Ariel explained.

"Really?" камбала asked.

"It's a long story," сказал(-а) Ariel. As they walk away from the Deli, Ariel told камбала the details of the story such as saving Melody, standing up to Eric, and a ужин with them. When she finished, камбала was amazed. That was a...

Melody's Nanny Chapter 2

Normally, Eric would be in his office, working on countless papers for his boss. But last night, after he put the nanny advertisement on the newspaper, he had requested a день off on Saturday from his boss thus he could find a nanny for Melody. His boss agreed and hoped to have him back at work soon.
Now Saturday came and everybody read Eric's advertisement. Many nanny candidates showed up at Eric's house. The Interviews took place in the living room. While Eric was sure to hire a nanny, Melody was not thrilled.

I don't know why Daddy is doing this! I don't want...

Chapter 1

"Melody, wake up," сказал(-а) Eric as he patted his five-year-old daughter on the arm.

"Five еще minutes, Daddy," Melody yawned.

"But Melody today is your first день at your new school. If Ты don't get up, you'll be late," Eric responded.

"I don't want to go to school today!" сказал(-а) Melody.

"Melody, get out of постель, кровати right now или I'll spank you," Eric firmly stated.

Melody's eyes went wide and quickly got out of bed. Eric left while she got dressed. She took her розовый pajamas off and tossed them on her bed. Then, Melody slowly put her on her outfit on. She dressed slowly since she did not want to...
