I've missed you so much
Shelley had made a mess of her life every since she had run away from home when she was just sixteen. She managed to get a few part time jobs and was able to crash with friends she had met but nothing had really seemed to work out.
In fact she was just about flat broke with no chance of a job until spring so she decided to eat humble pie and make her way home. She half dreaded the reunion, all the questions with her Dad shaking his head her Ma showing her disappointment but she just had no other place to go.
She rang from a callbox just a short way from their house and her younger sister answered and sounded so pleased it was her, saying "I'll tell Mum you'll be coming soon. Shelley had to knock on the door as she didn't have her own key anymore and she heard the rush of feet in the hall and at the door her Ma wrapped her up in her arms saying "I've missed you so much Shelley" and there wasn't a dry eye in the house.
