I could refuse to let her stay here, but where will she go? At least I know she's safe and warm and going to school and to work. And I like Nikki. She's always polite to me, she talks to me. And she'll probably only be here for a few days.
I can't call her mom. I've never met the woman, I don't even know her name (which is different than Nikki's). I don't know the number.
Could be worse.... it could be Karie! A rude, thankfully former friend of Dani's. And Karie would NOT be staying, under any circumstances. Any kid who will refuse to even say hello to me in my own home isn't welcome here... ever.
UPDATE: No sooner had I posted this last entry when Dani tells me that Nikki is going home after she gets done work. Apparently her mom called her bluff and told her if she's not home tonight, she's never setting foot in the house again and Nikki caved. Not sure I agree with mom's tactics but it worked.
