2. Home Alone





As I get in I instantly sniff mum's delicious cooking scent, dad's a horrible cook, it's an good thing that I get to live with mum. After all he cheated on her and that's what split them up. 

"mum, I'm home!" I called.

mum came out of the kitchen running, her arms raising. 

"Hiiiiiiiiii." she said as she hugged me.

This is a thing that I like with mum, when she's happy, she's a huger. I wonder what made her so happy. 

"What's up?" I asked her. 

"Umm nothing, but my daughter's going to London!" she says excitedly.

"What?" I asked confused. 

"The school sent me an approval message for a school exchange program next Monday and I said ok." 



"WOW!" I whistled. It was in London! I've always wanted to visit London. "You know mum, this school teaches magic tricks." I added.


"Yeah. That's what the principal told us." I said. I was interrupted by my stomach's starvation voice. mum laughed a lot.

"What? Don't you eat at school?" 

"Very funny mum. I think, and thinking burns calories." I tell her trying to make an excuse. 

"Yeah, yeah." mum said sarcastically. "Now let's got to the kitchen." 








As I got in my house I called as usual.

"Mum, dad I'm home." 

But there was no answer, I went to the kitchen and found a note. 

Hey baby you're dad and I went to the grocery and took Carla with us,

we'll get you pudding don't worry!



I read. So I was home alone. I went upstairs to my bedroom and turned the music on, my cell phone rang. Alex.

"Hey Ally." I answered as I got the sound down. 

"You're never going to believe this!" 


"the school's in London." 

"What? Really? Isn't it like a dream coming true for you?" I asked. 



"So, what's up? The music was a bit loud, you're home alone?" she asked. God she know's me very well.

"Yeah. Want to come over?" 

"I don't know. Wait a second." She said. "Hey mum! do you want your car? No?" she said to her mother. "Okay I'm coming over." she told me. 


"We'll make some plans for the next Monday." 

"Ok, don't be late."

"I won't. bye."

I hung up and made some popcorn, Alex's so obsessed with popcorn I don't know why. After about fifteen minutes the doorbell rang. I opened it and it was Ally. 

"Hey. What is this beautiful- Are you making popcorn?!" she asked.

"Yeah." I laughed. "It's in the kitchen go get yourself a bowl and put some in. 

"I'm gonna need a big one then." she said as she went to the kitchen and got the biggest bowl we had. She took the bowl with her and went to my room. 

"Now this exchange will be for a month! It's a very long time for normal exchanges, don't you think so?" She said, her mouth full of popcorn.

"Well, maybe this school is really cool that one week won't be enough."

"And maybe it's too boring."

"Oh, don't be like this!"

Ally laughed and there was a pause. 

"alright now, what clothes are you taking with you?" She asked. 

"umm Ally, I'm not a girl. I don't plan my outfits before a month."

"But this isn't just a trip, we're travelling for a month. Hello!" she said. 

"You know you may be right." I said honestly. What was I going to wear for a whole month. 

"Go get a suitcase and I'll give you the clothes. Only you'll put the boxers I don't really like this mission."

I gave her a snorting laugh. 

"I wouldn't allow you to do that. I mean would you let me pack you your bras and undies?" I asked still laughing. Alex joined me. 

"Eww, no. Shut up!" she said and she went to my closet and started searching for clothes. "You've got nothing to wear! No like literally. I'd die If I were you." she said. 

she finally got me five shirts and three bottoms. 

"That would be enough." I said. 

"Yeah, maybe." she said and then laid on my bed. 

"Do you think it's a boarding school or we'll just stay in a hotel or something?" I asked her.

"Well mum said it was a boarding school." 

"Yeah that would be better." I said. 

The doorbell rang again. 

"I'll get it." Ally said. And so she did. I heard a faint of her, mom's, dad's and Carla's voices and then Ally and Carla came up. 

"Hey Kyle." Carla said. 

"Hello." I answered. 

Alex and I kept on talking about this trip, Carla joined us and got so jealous.
