9. The same day at school

As the weeks went by and everything was the same at school, the teachers angry. Liam and Jacob tormenting Mathew about the past and my good friend Lucy spending more time with her boyfriend than me but I didn’t mind what ever made her happy made me even more happier for her. Like every day after school I would come home to a beautifully made dinner and a lovely mum waiting to kiss me and ask how my day was and I always replied with "it was fun, enjoyable" she would always smile and go off to the kitchen and me to my bedroom for studying. But every weekend on Sunday I would go out to do my paper run to earn some pocket money, I was saving up for a present for Lucy’s birthday this year: 1975, she was turning 14.

When I got up out of bed and slipped my cold feet into my bright pink woolen slippers my grandma made me, I made my way down the hallway to the kitchen. I noticed a note on the bench I picked it up with my cold, shivering hands and read it quietly to myself:

Dear Rose

I have just gone down to the shop to get some more groceries as you may see we are out of milk and the milk man hasn’t dropped any off. If you decide to do your papers early just leave a note.

and also a boy came around and asked if you were home. I told him you were still asleep and he introduced himself and told me he would come back around 9:00 he seems like a really nice young gentleman.. Tell me if you leave the house and what time you will be back. Have fun.

Love your mother.

I put the note down and looked up at the round brown clock it read 8:40. I looked away not really noticing the actual time. I opened the fridge and scanned the shelves looking for breakfast. I couldn’t see anything appealing so I decided not to have anything. I walked down the hallway to my room and got out my best clothes, a little blue dress that reaches just above my knees. It was one of my dresses from when I was 12 so it was a little small but it looked good so I wore it. When I was closing the draw I heard a knock on the door.

I ran down into the lounge and pulled open the light yellow curtains just a little and peeped out. I saw a boy standing looking nervous. He had brown shorts and a navy blue top. He knocked again and I turned my head to the door. I slowly opened the door and saw Mathew with a big smile on his face.

I stepped forward "hi" and smiled at him, he just smiled back.

"I was wondering if you want to go out for the day with me??" he looked down at the floor like a little boy getting told off by his grandma.

"yes sure. I just have to get ready. Come in and sit down if you want to"

He nodded and walked inside "wow your house is beautiful"

I looked at him "really"

he looked back at me "it’s beautiful like you"

I smiled at him then went red and looked down "I have to get ready now. I won’t be long" I snuck around the door frame and ran to the bathroom and pulled out my white tooth brush and tooth paste and quickly slopped the paste on my brush, turned on the tap and let a few drops of water hit the paste then I brushed like crazy. I rinsed my mouth and brush, and then looked in the mirror "You can do this. Just be yourself" I let out a deep breath which made a patch of fog on the mirror. I walked into the lounge and saw Mathew admiring all our objects. I cleared my throat which made him turn
