Chapter 6: A special visitor is coming for dinner.
“What’s for dinner?” Alex said just straight away before Sean was about to say something. Then the house phone started ringing. I answered it.” Hello?” I said.
Sean came over. I gave the phone to him and he walked away from us and went into his bedroom. “He seams annoyed.
"What did I do?” I asked looking at Alex. Alex shrugged and continued to play chess with me.
“It’s just he thinks you’re going to be in his way.Sorry Rose it’s just we haven’t seen you in ages. Years I mean.Because mum and dad brought you back to that other annoying world.” Alex said.
I nodded and kept on playing. Sean came in and put the phone back where it had to be charged. It was really quiet until the doorbell rung. I didn’t play chess anymore and just sat on the couch beside Sean. He was working on his laptop.
I got a piece of paper and a pen.On it I wrote “what’s for dinner?” from Rose.
”You didn’t have to write it down; you could have just asked me.”Sean said. He went into the dining room and set the table.
Then the doorbell rang again. Alex forgot to open the door. He ran into the hall and opened the door. Three people came in. Alex shut the door.
“Uncle Anthony and his new wife and son are here, Sean. They came in and hugged Alex and Sean. Then the son sat down on the couch that was facing me. I noticed him and I lifted head up so I could see him clearly.
“You’re Rose aren’t you? My name is Simon.”Simon said. He put his hand out and I shook his hand.
“Dinner is served”Sean called as we all went into the dining room and sat down. The amount of food that was served was absolutely amazing.
It was really weird because while I was eating the adults didn’t notice me. After we were finished our dinner and desert we went into the living room and chatted. I sat beside Simon and sighed.
“Simon. Your parents still haven’t noticed me.“I said to him.
“Mother and Father,this is Rose our cousin.She’s Sean and Alex’s sister. Rose this is Isabelle and Anthony. “Simon said. He introduced them to me and they shook my hand.
They both apologised that they didn’t notice me. They had to go because it was getting really late and it was past Alex’s early bedtime.
”Um, Rose?” Sean said while I was tidying the kitchen with Alex.
“Yes. What’s wrong?” I asked.
“Well it’s just we have school in the morning. How long will you be living with us?” He asked.
”I will be going to school and I’ll be staying here maybe for a year or even more.” I answered. I went into my bedroom and went to bed.
“I totally fit in this world. Rose ask yourself witch world do you would love to live in forever? The main world where there is school, homework or the world where you are princesses and there are princes.” I thought to myself. Then I fell fast asleep....... and dreamed of the future.
