Autumn Abby waited to tell her mom because she was mad at her. SHe decided to wait until it was too late so that her mom would be sad that she didn't listen to Abby. In other words, Abby was being selfish. If you are asking why she got the pains in her stomach it's because many people experience grief differently. Some people experience grief in being sad all the time. Some shout. Abby bottled all her emotions up inside of her and that is why she had stomach pains she wouldn't let herself express any feelings so her body deided to cope with it another way.
