10. The Day Out

I woke up the next morning from the sun beams that burst through the curtains. That was when I rembered where I was. Today will be my first full day with my family! I jumped out of bed with glee and quickly put on some clothes; a purple roll neck and a dungaree dress over the top. It looked ok I guess. I walked down the stairs and entered the dining hall where breakfast was waiting for me.

After a satisfying egg on toast, my mother explained:
" Unfortunatly we were not able to go on a family outing yesterday because of unexpected situations." my mother glanced up to Jason's rooom. " That is why we will be going out today. We will be doing all of Mia's favourite things."

I felt excitement bubbling up inside me as I waited for my parents to eat their own breakfast. When they finally finished, we hopped into the car and my father started the car with a twist of the key.
" Isn't Jack coming?" I said confused and anxiously.
" Of course not. We will not let him spoil your special day." my mother said smiling.

We parked outside of a strange outside area which was full of laughing children and animals. My memory screamed out: The Zoo. From what my memories tell me, the zoo is a place to see all kinds of different animals. I have to say, my parents definitely chose the right place to go.

I leaped out of the car with joy and ran off into the zoo. Before I ws completely out of sight, my parents called out: " Mia, we will see you at the ticket entrance in one hour; okay!"
I gave them a big beaming smile and a wave back. I then gazed around in wonder at all the animals and how some of them looked so funny! I ambled down the small lane; knowing that today will be great. I then remembered that my mother gave me £5:00 to spend so I checked my pocket; it was still there. The smell of sweet candy floss drew me away from my thoughts. I skipped over to the stall to see a smiling young man. " Strawberry, watermelon or blueberry?" he asked kindly. I thought about it carefully but I just couldn't decide; all the flavours just seemed too mouth-watering to choose. The man must of noticed my hesitation so he said: " I know, you can have a bit of everything as I see that you are struggling to choose." he said, chuckling. He pulled out a white stick and twirled it inside a metal bowl. Soon fluffs of sugar wrapped it's way around the stick until it looked just like a cloud. "Here you go; candyfloss for a beautiful lady!" he said. I thanked him greatly and went off to see the animals.


I think the zoo definitely exceeded my expectations as the trip was full of exciting new things! I especially loved the elephants; I loved their big wrinkly trunks and their collosal stompy feet.
" So, what was you're favourite animal, Mia?" My mother asked.
" I loved the elephants mum! Their tusks were soooo long which is why the elephants are my favourite animal!" I replied with joy.
My mother stared back at me as if I was mad. I didn't see this coming. Did I say something wrong? She turned away from me and left me; still lingering in the awkard silence. It stayed that way for the rest of the journey.
