1. Goodbye mom.

Rylee!!” mom called from down stairs. I gently got out of bed, but I didn’t want to go downstairs. I knew what was going to happen today and I hated every part of it. Today mom left for the Bahamas. She always had to take trips like this for her job as a marine biologist but never for this long. She would take trips to Florida mostly, but only for a week or so. Two weeks at the most. But today she left for a whole 4 months.  I didn’t want to walk down those stairs and tell my mother goodbye for nearly half the year. But I knew I had to or I wouldn’t even bye able to say goodbye.

“hey mom'’, I said quietly and slowly made my way down the stairs. I couldn’t help but to let a tear run down my cheeks. I quickly wiped it away, trying to be strong for not only myself, but for mom as well. My mom pulled my into a VERY tight hug. “Im gonna miss you so much.” I heard her voice squeak and she started crying. We both did.

As you can tell, I’m very close with my mom. We have a special bond that I really don’t have with my dad. How could i? He’s never home, really. Always on business…

Mom pulled away and wiped the tears. She tried to give me a reassuring smile, but we both knew it was fake. “I love you.” she said. “I love you too” I replied. A horn honed outside and she glanced to the window. “That’s my ride.” she said with sadness in her voice. I smiled and she grabbed her bags and opened the door. We said our “I love you”s once again and she walked out the door. I watched her from the window as a man took her bags and put them in the trunk. She got in the back seat and the driver got back in. He started to drive off slowly and mom saw me from the window. She kissed her fingers and put them to the window and I did the same.

I watched her car until it was out of sight and I walked over to the pantry. I grabbed cereal, a bowl, and some milk, and I made a bowl of cereal. As I sat down and ate my cereal, I just thought about things. Then it hit me. I still had a lot of packing to do that I was gonna do last night but I fell asleep. Since mom was going away for 4 months I was going to be staying with my dad. Well, at his work. Which is gonna be all over the world considering he is One Direction’s manager.
