Rose was sitting worrying. For tomorrow, she was to meet the Greenleaf’s. The parents of her long lost ancestor. Will they be accepted. After all she had to go through in the last couple of years, this was not real surprise.
Rose made sure she and Galandriel, was at the house on time. She badly wanted to make a good impression on these people, for they were most possibly her only family left in this universe. Adrianna Greenleaf, met her outside the house.
Thranduil ask Rose to please leave Galandriel, in the care of Adrianna for a moment and come with him. Outside he ask her to tell him every thing she know of the happenings in Appaloosa Plains. To try and remember everything her parents and brother had told her. Everything she may have overheard. For this will be very important, if they are to found out what happened. For they need to stop this from ever happening too another family. So Rose told all she know, tear running down her face, as she told of the last time she saw her parents and brothers.
Thranduil even ask Rose if she and Galandriel would like to move in, but Rose had gotten use to running her own house hold. At 17 she was not keen on having Adults looking over her shoulder. So she respectfully declined. Hoping that Galandriel, would not one day hold that against her.
Time suddenly seemed to fly, Rose was attending regular school, with Adrianna looking after Galandriel in the morning, on Thrandiul’s insistence. Before Rose even realized it was time for Galandriel’s six birthday
Grandpa would drop a conversation with another adult in a heartbeat,, to give Galandriel attention. But then so did anyone else in town, not only from Galandriel but for Rose too. The whole town know what the girls had to go through.
With Galandriel, now older and mostly independent. Rose spend most of her free time in her garden. This was her only way of supporting her and Galandriel now. She did not want to take money from Thranduil, even if he insist on it ever time they saw each other.
That was if Galandriel was home. With her now found freedom, and every one in town looking out for her. Galandriel was forever out and about. Dancing at the local festivals was one of her favorite pass times.
Thranduil told Rose that the nations of Simarth have all agreed to implement strong sanctions against Appaloosa Plains. Also the Brigadier-general and his brother as up in the United Nations courts for crimes committed against both the Greenleaf’s and Abbott’s.
