4. Telling them
Today was the day that I had to go into school and tell all my friends that I was moving to America next week! I was so nervous that I had hardly slept a wink. Dad already knew about this but my friends didn't. The fear of their reaction was haunting me. I slowly got into my school uniform and did my hair with no effort at all. It was 6:30am and I leave at 7:30, I don't even know why I was up that early anyway. After I had got everything ready I Just sat at the kitchen table waiting for my mum to drive me to school, all I could think about was my friends and America.
We finally left for school and the journey took quicker than I anticipated and it was silent the whole way. I wasn't angry at my mum, in fact I was rather excited to move to America but I just couldn't face leaving my friends.
I arrived at school
"Bye Charlie I'll pick you up later, just remember they can come and see us in the summer and on school breaks"
"Okay mum bye"
I was so nervous walking as I got closer and closer to my friends I could hear them all laughing upstairs. I slowly crept up the stairs and reached the corridor
"Hey Charlie!!" They all said in a friendly way.
I couldn't help it the pressure building up inside me I didn't know what to do and then all of a sudden I burst out into tears!
"Charlie whats wrong!!" Roni said sympathetically as she threw her black buckled hand bag onto the floor. They all then dropped their bags and ran over to hug me.
It took me a few minutes to stop crying. My heart was beating really fast. In the end I just came straight out with it
"Girls, I'm moving to America"
They all gasped and started crying.
After about 10 minutes of crying we actually started discussing it.
Jaz said "So how are we ever going to see you again?"
I told them all that we can meet up on school breaks and we can arrange for me to go over there and for them to come over to America. We all hugged it out and had a really depressing day at school.
