Eating tasty food, playing games, watching tv and only doing some minor help from time to time?
How long could an ideal situation like that last?
The answer is more normal than you would expect
until the end of summer
Almost every single kid would play around on summer and go back to school at the end of it
Normally, a slum kid wouldn't have the possibility of going to school, or would only be able to go from time to time like Max
But Cat wouldn't have that. She already decided to take responsibility for the kid, so missing school would kind of miss the point of taking Sara under her wing
If there was one problem about all this, it would be that Sara wasn't registered in the government data base
Well, maybe she was, but they have no way of contacting someone that would know
The government technology wasn't so advance that they stored every single newborn baby ADN and fingerprints in a computer database
So Cat was forced to create a new ID for Sara
Normally, a person would try a legal way of doing it. Since Sara was only 5 years old, it shouldn't be too hard to create an ID legally. Usually, a person can get a country's ID by being born there, having a parent who was born there or living in that country for a specific amount of time
So basically, for Sara to get an ID from their country, the best way would be for her to be adopted by Cat or someone
The thing is, Cat was a wanted criminal, so adopting her would be kind of tricky
Besides, CAT WAS A F-CKING CRIMINAL!!
Why the f-ck would she use the legal way?
She talked with some guys, that talked with some other guys that pay some government officials and voila, new ID
No paperwork, no lines, no waste of time, no bureaucratic bullsh-t, and no pain in the a-s
Cat did have to spend some money, but she wasn't lacking in that department
Besides, even thought she obtained it in an illegal way, it was still a "legal" ID as valid as one obtained by normal means
It was just done faster
It took some work since Cat couldn't leave the house, but with the help of muscle uncle and money, it was done relatively fast
All Cat had to do next was found a good school near the place
She settled for a private school 5 blocks from the house
It went from kindergarten to primary school with a High school next to it
Cat liked since it had a nice reputation, went from 9 am to 3 pm with optional extracurricular activities and offer lunch at the place
She could pay it with her fake bank account she used to pay all the bills at the hiding place, so it wasn't a problem there
The place even had a cute uniform, which she wouldn't be able to resist to take a couple of pictures later on(something that Sara would absolutely hate)
Basically, it was perfect
And there was no way Sara would be able to avoid going there, like it or not
The funny thing was that Sara actually wanted to go there. The moment Cat told Sara she was going to school, Sara was actually happy about it
Seeing Cat face, you could tell she didn't even expect that kind of reaction, and it easy to understand why What kid would like to go to school?
What normal kid would like to go to school?
The problem was Sara wasn't a normal kid. She was a slum kid
Most slum kids dream of a normal life, like loving parents, eating three meals a day and even something like going to school
Wich does it sound better? Spend hours with people the same age you can even make friends with or staying in the streets begging all day?
Besides, her big brother Max always preached about the importance of knowledge, and since her big sis also agree with it, why would she refuse them?
So basically, both completely agreed on Sara going to school
Cat even used Uncle Muscle as the guardian so he could sign all the paperwork, and go in her place if something ever happens
And like I said before, the moment the clothes arrived, Cat forced Sara to put it on and she practically started a photography session, causing Sara endless suffering
But a happy suffering
Besides, she had a warm roof to sleep, hot tasty food to eat, free entertainment, warm clothes, new school and a big sister that look after her
She may have some anger inside her, and still wanted to find her family, but she was happy
The day after the uniform arrived, Cat told Sara to go to Uncle Muscle place so he would take her to school
Later she would have to go alone, but she went with him the first time so they could sing some papers and so they could show Sara the school and the classroom where she was going to study
There they also found out she could go to school before the year started since some parents needed a place to leave their kids when they went to work and the school provide it
Uncle Muscle informed this to Cat in one of his letters(since Sara "Forgot" about it) and after finding out, she told Sara to go there and get to know some kids before school started
Besides, it would be a good trial run to see if she could blend in with kids of normal upbringing
The simple answer? she could
She spent most of her life surrounded by kids, so it wasn't exactly hard to get along with new kids
Most were new to the place also, so there was no problem about groups or stuff like that, and since all of them were small kids, they didn't notice her "unique" upbringing
Everything went without a problem, so she kept going to school almost every day(it was optional until class started) and had fun with the kids at school and with Cat at home
She even went to Uncle Muscle pretty often to deliver letters and other stuff, and he ended up warming up to her and even smiled a little when he saw her
Life went normally like that, until three weeks later when Cat left to live in another city without Sara
