Abbey whipped her head around and froze in shock. Her family stood in front of her, their eyes big with wonder and surprise.

“Mom!! Dad!! Brothers!!” Abbey wasted no time running into their open arms and squeezing them tightly. She sobbed with tears of happiness and they cried as well. The entire family hugged each other tightly for a few minutes with no one wanting to let go. Star squeezed his way into the middle of the huddle and wagged his tail back and forth. All the family members let go of each other to embrace the happy dog.

“How did you guys get here?! I saw you crying…I thought—“

“Don’t worry about that, honey” Abbey’s dad interrupted, “we did what we could to be with you again. All that matters is we’re together and safe again.” Abbey’s mother flashed her dad an intense look, as if willing him to not speak further.

“What’s your dog’s name?” Roger asked. Abbey stared at him for a minute, getting a flashback of the last time she saw him. She was unzipping his backpack and thinking of how much trouble she’d be in for leaving her room and snooping through his things. She pulled him into another tight hug and began crying again, overwhelmed with emotion.
