13. There's a First Time For Everything

  When I walk into the office mom is sitting there looking at me with a horrified look. Great, this is just what I need. Suddenly my math teacher comes in and takes a seat in front of us. "Yesterday, I have informed your daughter about an allegation that she has been cheating. This anonymous source even had proof. Apparently, someone in my math class has been copying the homework onto Yahoo!answers and getting the answer without actually doing the homework. This anonymous source also confessed to being the one who answers the question all of the time. So, to give her the benefit of the doubt, I allowed her to take a pop quiz but as I was grading it over......" she says trailing off. I  can't help but notice that she has never stopped looking at me. Not even at my mom who she's talking to. My eyes slowly wander to my moms face to see her reaction. It's a mixure between sadness and anger. "What?" my moms ask impatiently. "Well, she failed it. Which means she has indeed been cheating and I have no other choice but to expel her."

  Expel her. Those words are going to haunt me forever. Who knows about my mother. After my math teacher expelled me, my mom was forced to take me home. She won't talk to me, but can I really blame her? To be fair, she just witnessed her daughter getting expelled. Tears start to form in my eyes. I'm going to be grounded for life. Forget about mom for a second, what about father? Did you see how he acted when he thought I hid grandma's necklace(which I did but still) so imagine what he will do when he finds out.

  My mom stops the car and takes the keys out of ignition and stomps into the house. I wasn't exactly excited to go inside so I take my time. Then I approach the door. I wrap my fingers around the door knob and turn it. To my surprise, no one is there so I try and make my way to my room quickly. Before I can do anything my mom catches me. "Where do you think you are going young lady?" She shouts at me angrily. "Um....upstairs..." I say hoping she'll just let me go. "No you're not. What happened today was unacceptable and you know it." She pauses for a second. "Look, I can't deal with you right now, go to your father." She says and walks away. Go to my father. GO TO MY FATHER. Who knows what he will do to me. I slowly walk over to him sitting in his regular chair. But this time, something was different. Sure, he was sitting there, but he was also holding a necklace with stuffing on the floor. Wait, that necklace looks familiar...... OMG. It's my grandma's necklace! And that just isn't stuffing on the floor, it's my poor Beijing! He found it. I'm in double trouble! Suddenly, everything he said that night about the necklace rushes into my mind. "If I find it first, there will be....consequences." My body trembled at the thought of what consequences meant. Forget double trouble, my life is OVER!
