22. Moving

 

'I wish we weren't moving Dad,' sighed Abby, shoving her clothes into her suitcase. 

'I know Abby but work is tough. It's either we move or I lose my job and I love my job. I know it's hard, but we have to. And it's better to have a fresh start. Jamie moved, now you are.' Abby felt a sharp pang in her chest as her Dad mentioned Jamie.

'No, Jamie didn't move. He was forced out of his home and into a new house before, you know, he died...' she trailed off. A lump formed in her throat, so she coughed, trying to get rid of it. There was silence for a moment, as Abby and her Dad thought about Jamie. It was disturbed by a loud roar from outside. Her Dad looked out of the window.

'The people are here to collect our things. Make sure you have everything,' he said and excited the room. Abby sighed and shut the doors to her wardrobe for the final time. Her eyes surveyed the room. Nothing left. Not even the sheets on her bed was there. She walked slowly over to her desk. Nothing was on it apart from a few scribbles from years ago. She opened the top two drawers. They were empty apart from a few pencil shavings Abby couldn't be bothered to put in the bin and a pencil that had been gnawed at by the people who had been next door before Jamie had arrived.

Jamie.

'I wish I could see you again,' Abby said to herself, saying it up to the sky. She hoped Jamie could hear and would come back down to earth again, to be free with Abby. Maybe Jamie was looking down on her right now, wanting to come back down but couldn't. Maybe...

'DAAAAAAAAAD!' Abby yelled suddenly, a thought hitting her.

'DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAD!' 

'Yes, Abby, what do you want?' asked her Dad, looking flustered.

'Dad, can we go down June Drive? I really want to say goodbye to Jamie, and that's where he left earth. Please Dad, pleeeeease,' she begged, clasping her hands together. Her Dad sighed deeply.

'Abby, we need to get there before the box people get there,' he said. Abby felt tears spring up in her eyes. Her bottom lip wobbled and she turned slowly around. 

'Abby, wait,' her Dad sighed. She spun round excitedly.

'We can go to June Drive if you promise not to be sad or gloomy or annoyed about moving OK? And only if it helps you move on.' She nodded happily and flung her arms around his neck.

'Thank you so much Dad!' She unhooked her arms off his neck and was running upstairs when:

'Abby?' 

'Yes?'

'You also have to carry your boxes to the van.'

'Alright Dad.' 

                                                                            ***

'Hurry up Dad, if we go fast, we'll be able to get to the house in time!'

'Abby! Stop rushing me!' her Dad yelled, and Abby sat silent. Inside she felt bubbly and happy. The car turned a sharp corner and Abby saw the sign saying 'June Drive' and she let out a scream of joy.

'Whoa, Abby, calm down. I will park the car by the side and you get out and say goodbye. You have five minutes then we leave for good. Alright?' Abby nodded and with one push, stepped out of the car to find...
