Chapter 6

After driving through the mid-afternoon into night they had made it to Kansas just as exhaustion is catching up to them a bit they were determined to get to Cherokee County which would lead them to Roseland. Jana couldn’t sleep or sit still the whole way their knowing that she was almost to her destination Angel kept smiling at her trying to calm Jana down some but she just wasn’t able to contain the excitement.

Angel drove the last stretch into their new neighborhood as they saw their new house coming into view Jana literally was all over her seat in paces with excitement seeing the cute two story house with two bedroom,two bath doll house that they have found online for a reasonable price. It is in need of some painting,flower beds along the house,a fence for the back yard for the cute dogs they have planned to adopt, and just many more plans to make the home look amazing.

Angel had just parked the truck in their new driveway as Jana jumped out the door and literally just grinned from ear to ear as she gave Angel a quick kiss on the cheek saying,

“I am going to my parent’s house that is a few doors down to let them know we have arrive, oh my goodness this is exciting.”

Angel just let Jana go to her parent’s as she watched the love of her life beamed with excitement to be back in her home state even though Angel was with pure exhaustion and knew the truck had to be returned by that afternoon but she needed rest, so she went to the door unlocked it letting herself in as she sighed knowing that their is no air conditioning or anything yet since they just shut everything off at the apartment. As soon as she explored the house since all they saw were picture’s from the Realtor she wanted to admire the home in her own way, she heard Jana calling her.

Angel walked towards the front yard again seeing Jana with her parent’s this made her sweat because they knew about her but nothing more. As she walked toward them Jana pulled her long a little faster as she reached them, she stopped mid-way from causing Jana to crash into them. Jana led the introduction turns out her mother Mary Johnson and her father Gabriel Johnson are very sweet and accepting.

They have given Angel a welcoming hug with kissing her cheeks after talking for a few Angel let out another frustrated sigh not meaning to in front of Jana’s parents but they can see the struggle as Gabriel asked,

“What’s wrong Angel?”

Angel looked over at the truck then back at Gabriel replying,

“I have to have the truck back to the U-Haul by this afternoon and we still need rest an to unpack everything, I am so exhausted from driving I can barely function.”

Gabriel patted Angel on the back responding,

“Give me the keys, Mary, take the girls back to the house to let them rest, I am going to contact a few neighbors to help get the girls settled in. See you all in a few hours or so.”

Angel handed over the keys to the truck and house as they went back with Mary to their house to rest for a while which Jana ended up staying up a little while longer catching up with her mom.

After sleeping several hours Angel woke up refreshed and ready to go as soon as she heard everyone in the kitchen talking Angel got dressed an headed downstairs to see that sure enough Jana and her parent’s were talking. Jana’s parent’s nodded to Jana to turn around as soon as she did Jana ran up to Angel giving her a hug and kiss on the lips than releasing saying,

“You look beautiful as ever with sleep finally. I haven’t slept all day, I’m on super excitement mode today since we got here and dad got our house set up plus turned on everything in his name so we don’t have to pay for much except renting and get our pets soon after we set the plants in the front yard an get the fence up which dad is helping with too.”

Angel just smiled as she replied,

“Jana, baby, okay slow down, I need coffee and we will go over everything that needs to be done.”

Jana was bouncy non-stop as she knew that if Jana didn’t get sleep soon they would be having more trouble as Angel got her coffee she looked at Mr. and Mrs. Johnson with a smile as they looked at her with a smile too than said,

“Thank you for letting me catch some sleep it was much needed as for Jana I’m starting to wonder if she’ll slow down from excitement.”

Gabriel and Mary laughed as Mary placed her hand on Angel’s squeezing it gently replying,

“She will before you know it, luckily your house is ready to go for the both of you. As a way to calm her down some warm tea and milk it will settle her.”

Angel nodded as she finished her coffee than placing it in the sink as she saw Jana ready to go by the door saying,

“Come on babe, let’s go to our new home, I can’t wait to see how daddy set us up.”

Angel laughed as she responded,

“Yes, my dear, let’s go home.”

They walked out of the Johnson’s home hand in hand down the street to their new home seeing that it is nice to have Jana’s parent’s close wasn’t a bad thing since Angel lost her grandma several years ago and she needed a support system rebuilt. As they got near the house Jana stopped Angel whispering,

“I know I promised us that we wouldn’t make out in public and such but for some odd reason I have the urge too, I know neighbors are already on lookers with us here in their city it’s just a urge to prove the world you are mine.”

Angel placed a finger on Jana’s lips whispering back,

“We’ve already kissed in public many times since we got together, you are wanting to make it official to the world even though you don’t need to in any sort of way. Right now, I recommend getting you to bed to sleep, now which floor is our bedroom top or bottom?”

Jana lowered her head and whispered,

“We are on the top floor, our library is in the spare bedroom for now until we can make arrangements for the basement to be a library.”

Angel guided Jana into the house closing the door behind them as she placed Jana in the upstairs bedroom watching as she changed into pajamas and getting comfortable as Jana spoke softly again,

“My sweet love, can I have some warm tea with milk? Mom always made that for me to relax my mind from excitement or whatever went on that day.”

Angel kissed Jana’s forehead replying,

“Of course, I will be right back.”

As Angel went downstairs she made her way to the newly refurbished kitchen it was a soft baby pink with a tint of blue it stood out amazingly and so she brewed some tea up from the coffee pot then as soon as it was done she splashed a bit of milk into it then went back upstairs to their bedroom placing the warm tea by Jana as she saw that Jana had fallen fast asleep and she watched for a little while then headed downstairs to watch a movie on their television in peace until she fell asleep herself.

Jana woke up to realize that Angel wasn’t beside her and as she rushed downstairs, she missed a step she fell down the last four steps as her ankle twisted half way around that was when she let out a blood curdling scream that woke Angel up immediately.

Angel hurried off the couch to see Jana laying on the ground holding her ankle as she picked Jana to the couch saying,

“Baby, oh my gosh, let me get a ice pack and a pillow to lift it on also some aspirin you are going to be resting for a few days, I hope it isn’t broke.”

Jana took a deep breath holding back tears as she replied,

“I will be okay thankfully it don’t feel broke just feels like I walked on it wrong more than anything when I came down the stairs to quickly coming to see where you were since you weren’t in bed with me.”

Angel kissed Jana on the forehead than inspected the ankle luckily it might be just a strain but nothing had actually broke after that hard fall. As she lifted it onto a pillow and then went to the new kitchen to get a ice pack from the freezer.

Angel called up Jana’s parents so she can go get ready for her day which involved getting a fence,flowers, and maybe a few pet’s to have around like a Australian Shepherd or Golden Retriever they only needed one pet for now until they can get used to the new place. Though she was curious what the rest of the house looked liked inside.

Angel set off to get dressed in their bedroom as she found some tight blue jeans and a black tank top to go with. Angel loved wearing her dresses but today she needed to be casual and professional at the same time, so she got her socks and shoes on then roamed around the house seeing that they did have a attic right above their room,beautiful bathroom with light blue walls,bathtubs that were just right and sinks that stood out.

Downstairs had a basement so it was empty at the moment but very roomy, the spare bedroom/library was gorgeous with a beautiful lavender color to it with some flowers around the wall, then the backyard was empty right now but needs grass cut and everything to be made into a beautiful backyard. The house was enormous inside but outside look like a normal home with very little detail.

Angel could see that Jana’s mom Mary had arrived and started making breakfast as she spoke,

“Are you hungry sweetie? I was going to make some pancakes and such for you both.”

Angel shook her head replying,

“No, I’m not hungry, I will get something while I’m out which is going to be quite a walk since I’m sure Gabriel already left.”

Mary smiled responding,

“Actually he is still here and he knew you would need driving around until you both got a vehicle or actually I believe we have a extra vehicle, let me go ask Gabriel, keep an eye on the eggs and Jana is fine she is just reading.”

Angel nodded seeing Mary leave to the living room and spoke with Gabriel as she hurried back with a reply,

“In our driveway we have a dark blue Chevy truck it is brand new to be exact Gabriel bought it for you both, not sure why but he did. Here is the key’s and don’t worry about Jana she is in good hands.”

Angel took the keys as she hugged Mary then went to the living room to see Jana and her father Gabriel chatting it up as she watched in the doorway she wished she knew who her father was and why her mother has never returned since that one kiss with Scarlett. Anyways, she gave Jana a kiss on the lips gently then released saying,

“I will be back in a few hours, stay off that ankle today.”

Jana grinned responding,

“I will babe, go do what you need too, oh don’t forget we have to meet with the adoption agency here in a week or two so we can adopt our own child.”

Angel raised a eyebrow replying,

“Where is this adoption agency Jana? and when were you going to tell me?”

Jana frowned realizing she forgot to tell her that she called them a few weeks before leaving Michigan as she responding,

“I am so sorry that I forgot to tell you and it is in downtown Kansas City it’ll be quite a drive but we can do it I’m sure, you have wanted a child in your life and so have I.”

Angel sighed then replied,

“Jana, I am not sure how we are going to squeeze everything in that means we are going to have to move all our library stuff down into the basement that isn’t even set up properly with no walls or anything.”

Jana squeezed Angel’s hand responding,

“Babe, relax, we can do this okay it’ll take a little time but we’ll make it.”

Angel released her hand then thanked Gabriel and went to her girlfriend’s parent’s house as she got in the truck feeling the frustration built up from everything already on her. Now she has to rethink of animals but at least get the front yard and backyard ready especially for fencing and flowers.

Angel put the key in the ignition than placed it in gear and drove off to do errands that had to be done. A day here and she was already feeling the stress.
