Shin: But if she stays in the States, what will she do? She doesn't want to go to college. She'll need to get a job so she can get her own place. We don't have enough space for her to stay long term.
Trillian: I know, but she is right. She'll have good opportunities if she can stay. If you're on board, we can figure it out.
Cameo pushes her new stroller into the room with her new doll - both are Christmas presents.
Trillian: Okay, Honey. Play in here.
Cameo: Okay, Mommy.
Cameo: Yes, my baby.
Cameo has a seat on the floor.
Trillian: If you're okay with working on her staying, we'll set an appointment with the immigration office. Get some answers. I don't want to give up without doing what we can for Seiko. She's my sister too.
Trillian: I love you too. Especially when you understand what's important to me. This is important to me.
Cameo: Stop. No! Stop, Mik! It's my doll.
Emiko: Dah! Dah! My!
That gets their parents' attention.
Emiko doesn't listen and keeps trying to take the doll while Cameo continues to express her aggravation.
Shin (sternly): Emiko! Come here right now.
Recognizing the tone in her father's voice, Emiko whines and then reluctantly walks over to him. He picks her up, kisses her, then sits her on his lap.
Shin: We can talk more about it later. I want to have more answers before talking to Seiko or my parents.
Trillian: Okay. I'll make some calls tomorrow and do some research.
I hope they can figure this out soon. Seiko may be crushed if she can't stay.
I hope the weather hasn't been too bad for you. Stay warm. ~ Jaye
