6. Aunt Tulisa Helps

                                                                          Chapter 6

 

'Oh, my Abby. How you have grown! And my, you've grown more beautiful! I've never seen that straight black hair so straight and those dark brown eyes so dark brown! Can I come in?' Abby smiled.

'Of course you can, sit down on the sofa and I'll make a tea. Herbal?'

'You know me so well,' smiled Aunt Tulisa, sitting down on the sofa like she was commanded to. Abby went into the kitchen. Two minutes later, Abby emerged with a cup of herbal tea and a cup of hot chocolate (Abby detested tea although she found coffee quite nice). She placed them carefully down onto the oak coffee table and sat down too. An awful row was commencing from Jamie's house and it could be clearly heard inside Abby's living room.

'Gosh, they are noisy aren't they?' Abby nodded. Then, a thought struck her. Perhaps Aunt Tulisa knew about the Brands? It was worth a try. 

'Aunt Tulisa, do you know anything about the Brands?' The colour drained from Aunt Tulisa's face. 

'Why? What do you want to know?' she asked nervously, biting her lip.

'They sound familiar but I don't know why. Do you know?' Aunt Tulisa sighed heavily.

'Well, your-' she stopped.

'No, Abby, I do know but I'll tell you next time.'

'But,' Abby protested.

'I SAID NO ABBY! LEAVE IT!' yelled Aunt Tulisa. Abby was stunned. Aunt Tulisa had never yelled at her before, not even when she tore her sari. 

'I'm sorry Abby. I shouldn't yell at you but next time, next time I see you I'll promise you.' Abby shook her head.

'You shouldn't be sorry, it was me being too persistent,' but in her mind she was thinking, "Why did you yell at me? I did nothing wrong, is it something that important?" There was a silence in the living room, which was occasionally disturbed by a long slurp or two. Abby desperately wanted to go see Jamie again, to tell him about Aunt Tulisa and how she shouted. But she couldn't. And what if Dad came home and saw her? She wasn't allowed to see Jamie at all, which was extremely unfair. Why couldn't she see him? All of a sudden a swarm of emotions rose up inside her. Anger (at her Dad for being so unfair), sadness (for being not able to see Jamie), confusion (for not knowing why the Brands sound familiar) but what she found that was still there when all the other emotions had vanished was emptiness. Emptiness because she didn't have a friend. Then the emotions came again, swirling in a massive tornado inside her. She needed to get them out, she needed to talk to someone, anyone. But who better to talk to then the kindest woman she knew? 

'Aunt Tulisa?'

'Mmm?'

'What would you do, if say, your Dad wouldn't let you see your friend but he won't tell you why you can't see him?'

'I would yell and scream at my Dad, kick him in the shins, then go storming upstairs until he lets me.'

'Really?' Abby was quite shocked.

'Of course not! Truthfully, I would sit down with my Dad and ask him why. Ask him why he can't tell me, why I can't see him and ask him for the truth. If he won't tell me, I'd ask someone else in my family.' Abby nodded. She didn't need to find it out by her self, she just had to ask. Why hadn't she just gone to Aunt Tulisa in the first place? Now it was clear, she just had to wait for Dad to get home.
