I woke up to the sweet smell of bacon which instantly made me jump out of bed. I know I say I don't normally eat breakfast but bacon is defiantly an exception.
"Mum, your the best!" I yelled as I ran down the stairs in my pyjamas and slippers.
My mum just laughed as she watched me scoff down my bacon butty.
"Charlie, after you have eaten that you need to get dressed" my mum said to me whilst she was making my step-dad Tony his breakfast.
"Why?" I said with a puzzled look on my face.
"Because we are going on a family day out!" She replied with a huge grin on her face.
We don't normally have family days out so I was really suspicious.
I got up out of my chair and chased Lilly up the stairs, I pinned her down and tickled her feet, she couldn't stop laughing it was so funny. I went into my bedroom and checked my phone for any messages. There were 5 on there: 2 from Daisy, 1 from Jaz, 1 from Cat and 1 from Roni. They all said pretty much the same thing,
"What are you doing today, wanna meet up?" So I just send them all a group message saying:
"Sorry girls, I cant we're having a family day out :L wish my luck"
I tapped send and then put my phone down to choose what I was going to wear. I chose a floral, summery top with my denim shorts and my white converse with my white and pink frilly socks. It was really warm out so I didn't bother with a jacket. I curled my hair and loosely pinned the sides to the back. My sunglasses were on my head, my phone was in my pocket and we were all ready to go. My little sister Lilly was wearing this adorable little dress, honestly it looked so cute on her. We all got in the car and set off.
When we arrived Lilly woke up from her little slumber and we hopped out of the car. I looked around and instantly said
"where are we"
"We are out for a picnic, its such a lovely day" Tony said to me as he scuffled mine and Lilly's heads.
Tony's really tall and really strong, he used to be in the army. He picked me and Lilly up and carried us over his shoulders whilst we were screaming and laughing. Sometimes I like Tony but sometimes I find him really annoying almost like he would agree to anything my mum said just to make her happy.
We found a nice little spot under this huge tree and laid our blankets down. It was shanded so our food didn't go warm and we didn't get burnt.
"Ahh the lovely British summers we have" My mum said in a really happy sort of way.
After we had eaten me, Lilly and Tony got up and played with our crappy Frisbee. It was me and Lilly against Tony and we won 4-3!
"Tony come on its time!" My mum called over. He looked at her and nodded.
"Time for what?" I said to them curiously.
"Right girls come over here there's something we need to tell you" My mum replied nervously. Me and Lilly say down on the blanket opposite them.
"Right well me and Tony have been thinking about this for a long time and we have finally made the decision that we are all going to move over to America!!"
Lilly got up and started running around shouting "Disney, Disney, Yaaaaay!!" Where as I just sat there with my jaw to the floor and my eyes in their eyes. I eventually spoke but all I could say was
"Are you not excited Charlie?" Tony said to me.
All I could think about was my friends and my dad.
"What about my friends and dad I wont ever be able to see them again!" I was panicking.
"Of course you will Char, on summer holidays and school breaks, come on Charlie you have always said that its your favourite country in the world and that it would be your dream to live there" My mum said sounding like she was really disappointed with my reaction.
"I know but I just never thought it would happen! When are we moving?" I asked them.
"In a week" They said at the same time.
I was so shocked and didn't even know what to say. When we got home I was really upset because I knew that tomorrow I had to tell all my friends that I was moving to America.
