"Are you packed?" Mrs. Rivera -the lady in charge of the orphanage- asks me. I stuff the last of my belongings into a bag, and nod.
"Good, the cab is here." She answers. I once again, just nod. I'm not really a talker. I'm mute. I've never talked, and I never will. Its not a decision, I just can't.
I grab my bags and head outside to pile them into the cab. I can't believe I'm moving from sunny Florida, to rainy England. Its a dream come true! I've always been the girl who keeps to herself and has weird hobbies. Being obsessed with rain is one of them.
I sit in the back, and fiddle with my fingers.
What if I don't fit in at school?
What if I become a loser that no one talks to?
What if my foster family doesn't even want me?
I sigh. This whole thing is really getting to my head. I put my earphones in and listen to Imagine Dragons "Demon."
"When you feel my heat, look into my eyes.
Its where my demons hide, its where my demons hide."
~♥~******* Later That Day*******~♥~
I slowly arrive at an airport. I get my bags, and the cab driver helps me. I flash him one of my award winning smiles, and watch the airport staff whisk my stuff onto the plane. I sit on the bench, and observe my surroundings. I saw a family coming back from a vacation, a toddler spill his beverage, and I saw a teen making out with her boyfriend.
I grimaced as the memory crossed my mind.
"Flight 181! Your plane is ready for boarding." The intercom lady said.
I grabbed my carry on luggage, and headed through the gates.
I sat down in my seat, and put my earphones in, drowning the world out.
Just as I was getting into "The Zone" I felt a light tap on my shoulder. I turned my gaze to whoever it was, and saw that it was A boy -whom I'm guessing- was a bit older than me, with sea green eyes, and hair tussled to the side. He had a bit of of stubble on his chin, but he was extremely handsome.
"Mind If I take this seat?" I shook my head "no" and moved my bag out the seat.
"So what are you going to Holmes Chapel for?" He asks starting up a conversation that I wish he hadn't.
I pull out my notebook, and glittery Sharpie marker before scribbling down my response.
I'm moving to the UK to be with my family.
It wasn't exactly a lie. I am moving to the UK to be with Family. A foster family. but he doesn't need to know that...
I hand him the paper, and he glances at it confused. He looks up at me, and I point to my mouth, and move my lips to say, "Mute." He nods understandingly, and reads the paper finally.
"Oh. I'm just getting back from vacation. I came home early, because my parents are expecting their first daughter soon." He says. I smile at him and take the notepad back scribbling down:
Congratulations! Are you happy to be a brother?
I show him the notepad, and he nods. "I'll save her from any harm. I'll love her and protect her. She'll mean the world to me. I think she's supposed to be arriving today, actually. I can't wait!"
Awe! He would be the best brother in the world. I wonder what my family will be like... Will they be as amazing as this guy here?
Does she have a name?
"Yea, her names Genesis. Great name if you ask me." he says shrugging.
I however wasn't calm at all. My name is unique, and I'd like to keep it for myself, thank you very much.
What a coincidence. That's my name.
"G-Genesis Parker?" He stutters, with a shocked look on his face.
How the hell did this kid know my-
The pieces were finally coming together. He was my foster brother, I was his foster sister.
I nod carefully, and he wraps his arms around my small, and petite frame.
I am not sure what I'm supposed to do, so I awkwardly hug him with one arm.
"Sorry its just. I can't believe its you." He whispers into my hair. Normally, I would be uncomfortable, but the things he said about protecting me made me feel like I could be myself around him. I felt as If I should trust him, that I should let him in. I take a deep breath, and try to speak to him, but no words come out, just a strangled muffle sound.
"Its okay, you don't have to talk right now. Talk when you're ready. I'll wait." He says pulling away from the hug.
My eyes go wide for a while. He is amazing. He said he'll protect me, and that he won't pressure me into things. I officially love this guy. You know, in a...Sisterly way.
I take a deep breath and try to speak again. "Thanks." I cover my mouth, and his eyes widen. I talked to someone. My voice sounded hoarse and dry, but I still talked to an actual human.
"Y-You talked-" He says smiling.
"Y-You're t-the first person w-who's ever h-heard my v-voice." I try to say, but it sounds muffled and strange. So I can't do full sentences.
His smile spreads from ear to ear, and he pulls me into him. I lay my head on his shoulder and drift off to sleep.
