8. Bonding and Politeness

 

Selena's POV

 

I was woken the next morning by a loud ringing noise coming from beside my bed. For a split second, I panicked, forgetting where I was and what the noise was. But then I remembered and realised that the strange shrilling sound must have been my alarm clock, signalling me to wake up and get ready for the flight to Italy.

 

I sat up and glanced at the clock to see that it was ten o'clock. My eyes widened and I jumped off of the sofa, stumbling a little as my head span. I held on to the wall until the room righted itself again and then changed hurriedly before making my 'bed' as best I could.

 

Then, I hesitantly crept along the landing and down the stairs. I heard a loud boom down the corridor from the kitchen. Forgetting about my clumsiness, I quickly ran and pushed open the door to find that my mum had destroyed the microwave. I sighed then rolled my eyes, my mum can't cook to save her life, she can't even handle microwave without me being their to assist her.

 

"MUM! You know you can't put metal spoons in the microwave!" I scolded her, reaching behind me to grab a cloth to clean up the mess.

 

"I'm sorry sweetie! It just completely slipped out of my mind because I was thinking about stuff at work…" She explained looking frazzled as ever.

 

"Yeh yeh," I muttered under my breath, since her only excuse nowadays is to do with her job and I am so sick and tired of hearing about it. Don't get me wrong, I love my mother and all, but ever since she divorced with my dad, she has only been working her ass off, hardly spending any quality 'mother and daughter' time with me.

 

"Okay mum, well I have to go to the airport now. You know, for the school project and all." I told her with a kiss on her cheek.

 

"Wait Selena! Do you want me to send you there?" She asked tentatively, wringing her hands in from of her, looking at everywhere but me.

 

I smiled softly, touched that she finally managed to be able to do something for me, after all these years of me being independent.

"Yeh, I would like that," I replied, squealing when she brought me into a hug.

 

"Well what are you waiting for? Let’s go!"

 

We piled all my bags and suitcases into the boot of the car then slipped into the drivers seat. It felt weird not driving for once, but it was a good-weird. As Mum drove me to the airport, we talked, laughed and sung to the randomest things.

 

Our laughter soon died down and was replaced by silence, but not an uncomfortable one.

 

"You know, I've really missed this, just you and I talking." Mum glanced at me before looking away.

 

"Yeh, I missed it too Mum." She brought her hand over the console and placed her and in mine.

 

"I'll miss you so much when you leave." She whispered, her eyes turning glassy. I felt mine also prickle with tears.

 

"Mum! You promised me you won't cry!" I pointed out, my voice shaking slightly.

 

"Sorry baby, I can't help it. Just that my little girl is going overseas on her own without me, how am I meant to cook my meals now?"

 

I laughed and wiped my eyes with the back of my hand. "You know I won't be alone on this trip. I'll have Justin with me." That cocky, arrogant, annoying…somehow I always manage to list these adjectives about him in my head.

 

Mum raised her eyebrow at me. "Justin? Who's he? How come you've never mentioned him before?"

 

"Ugh Mum, I don’t want to talk about it. He's just my partner for this assignment, nothing more, except for the fact that he's a total jerk.  You'll see him when we get there." I exclaimed leaning my head against the window. Mum pursed her lips but didn’t comment anything else, which I was thankful for.

 

                                                                                                ***

 

All too soon, we arrived at the airport, and standing at the entrance was none other than Justin Bieber himself. I jumped out of the car, completely ignoring him and went to grab my things. I saw him run towards me in the corner of my eye and stopped to turn to look at him.

 

"What do you want?" I asked in an exasperated voice.

 

"Just wanted to help you carry your belongings, gosh no need to get snappy at me!" Justin raised his hands up in surrender.

 

"Look, I am capable of carrying my own bags, I'm not that weak you know!" I retorted trying to pull my suitcase from the car boot. Before he could reply, my Mum interfered.

 

"Selena honey, who is this lovely young man who's trying to help you carry your suitcase?"

 

 I snickered softly at the thought of Justin being "lovely".

 

"What? You don’t think I'm a perfect gentleman?" He whispered in my ear before walking over to my mum and greeting her by bringing her hand up to meet his lips. Of course, my mum blushed bright red. I didn’t bother to cover up my groan when I saw him wink at her.

 

"Now Selena, don't be rude! You are so very lucky to have this man to accompany you on this trip. You know, you should learn a thing or two from him, he's such a kind boy." Mum walked over and patted Justin's cheek.

 

I huffed angrily and stomped over to my Mum. "Trust me, there's more to it behind that handsome face and panty-dropping smile of his."

 

Mum chuckled and brought me into a hug. "Alright sweetheart, whatever you say. He's good for you, you know?"

 

I pulled back, "What's that supposed to mean?"

 

Mum smoothed my hair away from my face. "You'll figure it out eventually. Be safe okay?" She let go of me and walked over to where Justin is. "And look after my daughter for me alright?"

 

"Of course." He nodded his head slightly before picking up my bags.

 

"Flight number AK3198 to Italy, please board the plane now,"

 

I wiped my tears away as I said one last goodbye to my mum, before turning away to board the plane. Once seated, I immediately pulled out my ipod, put earplugs in my ears and turned my head to face the window as I watched the plane take off.

 

We are going to Italy.
