My alarm sounds throughout my flat making me groan. With my eyes shut, I move my arm to try and find my phone-- once found, I click on 'dismiss' and set my phone back onto the table. I finally decide to get up and stretch, my body clicking and muscles tight. I finally open my eyes and slowly move out of bed. Looking around, I see my clothes from last night all over my floor, and paper spread out everywhere. I sigh and run my fingers through my bed hair, finally I just give up and put my hair in a not-so-well-put-together top knot. My white button down shirt stopping right above my knees, and my body warm.
I go to the kitchen and grab an iced coffee from my fridge, open the cap, and drink it. "You still drink that stuff?" I scream and drop my coffee-- I turn around and see my best friend Zoey, sitting in a chair at the table. "Oh my god, why did I ever get you a key?" I ask bending down to clean up my coffee, which is now all over the floor. "Because you love me, and you know I would just bang on your door every hour of the night just to get in." She says matter-factly.
"So, what are you doing her at seven in the morning?" I ask and throw away the glass bottle. "Well, I may or may not have something important to tell you." She trails off. I quirk my eyebrow up as if saying to continue. "Well, I went through your mail-" I cut her off. "You went through my mail?" she waves me off, "As I was saying," she pauses, glaring at me. "You mum sent you an envelope" she says and grabs it out of her back pocket. I don't even question her as to why she has it.
It has been ages since you have last visited me, dear. I would like to see you. Hopefully you have finally found a nice man like your sister has. Im expecting grandchildren before I die, you know. Anyways, I have very special people who have came in, to visit you. I hope to hear or see you soon! Tell Zoey I said hello.
P.S. I forgot to ask you how work is! You can just tell me that when you come here. I love you x"
I read the letter out loud. I huff. "So, my mum is pretty much telling me to go visit her. I moved away for a reason, I don't want to go back." I tell Zoey and move around the kitchen. She follows close behind me. "Yeah, but look at it this way, It would only be for a week. Then, you can come back and lounge in your sofa and watch your massive television." She says in a dreamily tone. "No, I'm not going." I say and walk into my bedroom. I take off my shirt and roam around in my wardrobe to find today's outfit. "Here's your phone," She hands me my ringing cell phone. 'Mum' ugh. I press decline and throw it on my bed.
"You really should not decline your own mothers calls. She does know how a phone works now." Zoey says in a tone. I give her a look and slide up my skinnys. "I highly doubt- Why you gotta be so rude, dont you know im human too" My phone sings.
I sigh and answer my phone. "Mum, hi!" I say in fake cheer. I hear her laugh at whatever someone has said to her. "I was just calling you to see if you got my letter?" She asks, I hold my breath. "Nope, no letter. Why?" I lie. "Well, I was just saying how you need to come here, I have some people who want to see you. And how's that boyfriend of yours?" I button up my shirt. "Who is it?" I ask and avoid the question. "Carter has a boyfriend?" I hear a deep voice ask my mother. I pull the phone away from my ear and give it a weird look. I look at Zoey and mouth 'A man is at my mums' she gives me a weird look, like I did the phone.
"Oh, yes she does. His name is Zach, and he is a cheeky lad, he is. Anyways, sorry Carter, that is one of the people that have came to see you. Get a flight, we are excited to see you! Someone will be there at HEathrow to pick you up. Love you, bye honey." I reply with and 'i love you too' and hung up.
"Looks like im going to Cheshire." I say and throw my phone on my bed. I put on my blazer and then my flats, not even bothering to work on my hair. I grab my breifcase and pick up all of the papers from my floor and stack them neatly into the case. "I knew you would. and you said there was a man there? What if your mum is getting some!" She says loudly. "Ew, and she still thinks that me and Zach are still together, what do I do?" I asks and close the breifcase. I to back to my wardrobe and grab out my suitcases and start packing my clothes and neccessities for the trip.
"Hey, will you get on line and order me a plane ticket to Cheshire." I ask, she nods and gets out my laptop. "Thank you, I have to get to work now, you can chill here if you'd like. Love you Zoe, see you at half three." I say and wave. I grab my keys and go to my car. I can't believe I am going home. Where he is. Where my mum, and family is. Where my old friends are... Why did I agree?
short sorry. I tried to make it long. 1003 words!
