Ala told her Mommy about what happened at preschool that day.
"You can be friends with whoever you want, ignore those other girls."
Ala sniffed. "But Mommy, Tiana could rally the entire class with just a few words, it'd be me and Henry against everyone." Ala thought for a moment. "Why is she like that?"
Her Mommy sighed, "She's probably jealous."
Again, Ala thought back to the kid, she wasn't sure what Mommy meant, Tiana had everyone, from jewelry, to friends, dresses and headbands.
Ala would've begged Daddy to let her stay home the next day, but the thought of Henry having to stand up to Tiana and the rest by himself was too much.
"Stupid traffic." Her Daddy muttered. Ala gazed out the window, and stared thoughtfully at the chocolate store. There was a strange sign that wasn't there before.
"Daddy, what does that sign say?"
Her Daddy squinted a bit, "Last Stand, February Fourteenth." He read.
"Oh No!" Ala cried, she leaned forward as fast as she could and shouted, "Drive, Daddy, drive!"
"It's a sign!" Ala said dramatically, throwing her head back, and closing her eyes for dramatic effect. "Me and Henry will have the last battle against Tiana on February Fourteenth! I need to warn him!"
Her Daddy paused for a moment, then burst out laughing. "Alright sweetie, I'll get you there as fast as I can." He said.
But he didn't drive fast enough.
