20 / The Summer of Disruption
I was’t sure how to approach the subject with Yasmine. When her aunt passed away, I had stayed with Zane, while Yasmine and Ryan flew back. This was a decidedly different affair. I was going with intent of bring back both kids with me.

I knew she would find the whole situation unacceptable.
I knew she would fight it with every fibre of her being.
I knew it would break her.
I also knew that we had little option.

The most we could do is ring fence the amount of time we would let this situation drag on for. We settled on two weeks.
