"Oh, O.K., just tonight," Jeannie's Mom agreed. "But when I come home from work tomorrow night, she must be gone. I do not want to get involved in her family's troubles and you should not either."
"O.K., I will tell her to leave tomorrow," Jeannie said and turned to take the set of clothes to the restroom. When she opened the bedroom door, she gasped with surprise. Michelle was standing outside the room. Tears filled her eyes and ran down her face. She looked very lost and very upset.
"I heard everything, Jeannie!" Michelle cried. "Why didn't you tell me I am not wanted here? I will leave. You don't have to wait until tomorrow to get rid of me, I will go right now! I know when I am not wanted."
