I got back home at about 10 o'clock, of course if I didn't have to walk I would be home hours earlier.
I slowly opened the front door and shut it very softly behind me, hoping no one was awake.
"Where have YOU been young lady?!" My 'mother' said from were I would guess, would be the couch. She was the lady who would take in a homeless girl who ran away. And yes I told her why I ran away.
"Well I saw someone I didn't want to, like REALLY didn't want to see, and ran across town" I said, lowering my head as she started to walk toward me
"Who was is?" She asked, not sounding mad anymore,but more curiously
"The boy named Griffin"
"Oh Griffin, the one boy who got prasied because he was so 'cute' and played sports, Griffin?"
"'Oh is he part of that family that just moved?"
"He must because he was by the house with the moving truck park in front of it"
"What? I said. the way she said ' oh' didn't give me a good feeling.
"I invited their family over for dinner on tuesday. Apparently they have a 3 year old daughter which is good for Sophie, cause there aren't a lot of kids her age around here"
"Oh no. WHY DID YOU DO THAT!!?!?! NOW I'M GOING TO SIT DOWN AT A TABLE WITH HIM AND THINK OF ALL THOSE BAD MEMORIES!!!!!!" I said almost crying at that point.
"Look you can go to Jade's house if you really can't handle just sitting there and being near him. Ok?" She said softly
"Good now you need to go to bed"
"I know" I said trugging up the stairs.
------------------SKIP TO TUESDAY-----------------
I was setting the table for my mom while she was putting food on plates. Sophie,my 3 year old sister, was cleaning up her toys off the floor, but keeping a few barbies out to play with.
I was setting the silverware on the table when the doorbell rang.
"I'll get it!!!" Sophie sqealed as she ran towards the door. She was trying to open the door by pushing it. Smart child.
"Sophie, you pull the door not push it" I said rolling my eyes
"Ohhh okkkkkkk" She said trying to pull on it. I just opened the door for her and looked up at the family.
Put on a smile,Alanna. just seem like you're nice
The woman, who seemed to be the mother, was tall and skinny and had curly brown hair and hazel eyes.
The father was REALLY tall and had greenish blue eyes and brownish black hair.
The little girl had bright golden blonde hair and blue eyes and had a big smile on her face.
And last was Griffin.He had brown hair and dark blue eyes, he was skinny and tall and didn't seem the slightest happy to be here.
"Hi! you must be Alanna!", Said the mother, over excitedly, "I'm Melissa, this is Robert, our little girl Gillian, and Griffin" She nudged Griffin and he put a fake smile on.
"Uh, hi! This is Sophie and my mom's name is Jennifer", I said ," Why don't you come in." I said letting them into our house.
"I have to leave to go to a friend's house but I'll see you guys later" I said
"It was very nice meeting you" Robert said with a smile
"You too" I said faking a smile
Thank God that was over.I don't think I could go a whole meal pretending to be perky and happy.I was finally at Jade's house, I knocked on the door and a couple seconds later the door opened and Jade stood there looking panicked.
"Alanna I need your help, NOW!!!!" She said pulling me in the house and literally dragging me up the stairs and into her bedroom.
"Ok what do you need help with" I asked
"Ethan just asked me on a date this friday and I need something to wear" She said
"OH MY GOSH THAT'S AMAZING!!!!!"
"I KNOW RIGHT!!!"
We were jumping around like idiots for about 5 minutes
"Alanna I'm like, freaking out right now!!!" She said fanning her face
"Don't worry. This will be the best date you will have ever been on" I said
