1. Moving Time
Ashley walks to her computer and boots up the monitor. A page popped up into an e-mail. She started to type, 'Hey, we are finally moving to London I will miss you so much.' She pressed send as her eyes started to water. She wiped to falling tear and continued to scroll through her computer. Ashley then continued to put last minute things into boxes including her computer. She took one last look at the empty room and slowly closed the door. "Are you ready?" Her dad asked her while putting remaining boxes into the truck. She nodded. She was very pretty and petite. Her long brown hair reached to the middle of her back in perfect curls. She lived in Glasgow, United Kingdom. Her dad and her mum had recently divorced. Ashley didn't like to talk about why but it was for bad reasons. Ashley and her dad got into the truck with the moving van already on its way to her new house. London is where she is originally from but she had lived in Glasgow since she was little. She was going to miss her best friend Alex the most. Alex had been by Ashley's side since she first moved here, she was Ashley's neighbor until the moved down the block. They were the same age and did everything together. Ashley's dad promised to fly her into London this Summer, which was only two weeks away.
They started to drive away from their old neighborhood, Ashley watched the rear view mirror until she couldn't see it anymore. "This is good for you," Her dad said obviously noticing her sadness. She shrugged then let out a fake smile, he bought it. "What about this Zayn kid you had been e-mailing constantly?" Her dad asked trying to let out all the sadness in the car. "We have never met dad, and he is always busy." Ashley shot back. Ashley started to write Zayn a couple weeks ago, she did it to maybe gain a new friend so she wasn't a total stranger. "Maybe y'all could plan a day to hang out, he could show you the away around the town?" Her dad said bringing her attention back to him. "Maybe.." She said with no hope in her voice.
"Ashley, Ashley, Ash.. Come on wake up, potty break." Ashley woke up looking at a service station and jumped up since she has had to pee since she got into the car. She plopped out of the car and stumbled into the restrooms. After she did her business, her phone gave a 'ding'. She looked down at it and saw she got a e-mail from Zayn. She quickly opened it, "Hey Ash, make sure to tell me when you get settled in to your new house. I can come pick you up and we can explore." She closed it without replying so she didn't seem to eager to the idea. She got into the car and put in her headphones and started playing 'Gotta Be You' by One Direction. She was no directioner, but she loved their music. She couldn't even name any of them.
They finally pulled into their new drive way. She had seen pictures of her new house, but she never thought it was actually this big. "wow." She said letting out a shocking sigh. "I told you it was kind of big." Her dad said looking at her smiling. All Ashley could do was let her mouth drop to her legs. She thought it was a little silly since only two people would be living in the house, at least that's what she thought.
