Change My Mind


1. A Long Day

Paris's/ Para's POV:

"Could Paris Horan please come down to the office, bring your bag," said the speaker in the grade nine science room. My friend, Ally, asked me where i was going. I shrugged, grabbed my books ,and walked out awkwardly, aware that all eyes were on me.

As I walked downstairs, I saw that something was seriously wrong. There were cops. It wasn't every day that cops came to a Vancouver school. The principal saw me coming and ushered me over, pity written all over his face.

What. The. Hell. Was. Going. On

. "I... I'm afraid to inform you that your parents were in a car crash and... well... nobody made it,"

"w-what??," I say even though I heard him clearly. Was that even possible??? The principal repeated what he said and told me that I would be flown down to Ireland the next day to live with my cousin Niall and his family. My lower lip began to tremble and I felt hot tears beginning to well up. This couldn't be happening. How could my parents die just like that?y

The police took me back to my house, they told me not to bring much because I could only bring one bag. I packed some make-up, a few changes of clothes, PJ's, my iphone, headphones, wallet, toothbrush, toothpaste, hairbrush, and lots of old pictures. Hopefully if I wanedt anything else they'd send it to me.

I walked into my parents room one last time and burst into tears. I pulled on my moms favorite sweater that she had laid out to put on when she got home from work. I used the sleeves to wipe away my tears. She would never get to wear that sweater again.

After a few minutes, a cop came in and told me it was time to go. I would miss this place. I grabbed my bag and hopped into the police car, I said my silent goodbye to the house that I had grown up in. My home. Pretty soon my home would be in Ireland. It would be pretty great living with Niall, we were really close... but, still... I looked out the window and wondered when I would ever see Vancouver again.

 We got to the airport and I went through security. I would have to stay overnight at the airport. It was already 10:00 by the time I got settled in at the waiteng room and all I wanted to do was go to sleep. It had been a long day. As soon as I closed my eyes I fell asleep.
