I felt someone shaking my shoulder, interrupting my peaceful sleep. I groan and open my eyes. That boy from earlier stood there. (I still don't know his name) "Come on, the plane landed." He smiles at me. I nod and get my back before following him off the plane.
The walk to the Holmes Chapel airport was silent. Not an awkward silence, but a comfortable one. Soon the boy is attacked into a hug by an elder women who, -might I add- looks extremely similar to him. "Louis!" She says happily. I stand there awkwardly, unnoticed by the women. Or so I thought...
"And who's this? Got yourself a girlfriend, have you?" She smiles warmly at me. I blush lightly and look towards the ground.
"As flattered as I am," Louis starts flipping his imaginary hair, earning a giggle to escape from my lips,"I already have a girlfriend named Eleanor. And mum, this is Genesis."
Her smile instantly drops, and I know that she hates me. Tears begin to pool her eyes, and she bear hugs me. "Gen- Can I call you Gen?" She asks smiling once again. I nod and she continues. "Gen I can't believe you're here!"
I smile and hug her back. "I'm Johanna, your foster mum!" I nod, and we pull away from the hug.
"Is something wrong, dear? You're awfully quiet." She adds. I take the notebook and write down,
No, nothing's wrong, I'm just mute.
I show it to her, and she nods. "Well, thats fine! Come on, lets get going. I already decorated your room, is that okay?"
Yea, its your house. You decorate it how you want to.
A sigh escapes her lips and she looks up at me. (She's quite short) "Its our house. Our home. It may take some time getting used to this new environment, but I hope you feel like a part of this family, because you are."
I nod, and we all exit the airport. We get into the car, and tension is thick in the air. I can't help but think it because of my presence. Actually, I know it is. I rest my head on the window, and look at the passing buildings and trees.
This was going to be a long night.
Sorry its short, I had a long day.
Another chapter will be posted tomorrow.
