5. chapter five
"I'm sorry..." I say quickly
"It's just that I really want-" he says, and he slams shut the computer. "I know, kyle." I pick up the laptop and plug it in on the desk by the bed. I sit back next to him. "I want to find out more too, just...stay calm, okay?" "Okay, okay." He mutters back.
That night I managed to sleep a few ours.
The day after it didn't look like none of us slept much, we had breakfast with dad and then I headed in to my room to study for the English test on Monday. At 11.15 I hear my phone ring "yeah?" "Maaaaeeell!!" Somebody shouted over the phone, and I almost fell of my chair. "Hi Emma" "wanna hang out In the city center today? We're meeting Sean in 10 minutes at the park" "we?" "Me and you obviously! Hurry up Mael you don't have all the time you usually need to get ready" I smiled at the phone "ha ha ha...coming" and I finish the call.
There wasn't much to do in the city center, because me and Emma couldn't go shopping otherwise Sean would moan that we take to long. I couldn't even go in my favorite book store, I would take even longer than shopping with Emma. But I loved hanging out with Emma and Sean anyway, there was always something to talk about, and maybe it would distract me from all the mom stuff.
I have a quick shower and put a pair of cut off jeans and a white Rolling Stones shirt. "Going out!" I shout while I run to the door. "Don't be late" dad shouts back.
I run as fast as I can to the main park and when I get there I see Emma and Sean sitting on a bench waiting for me. Five minutes late, as usually. "Hey, sorry haha" "never mind" says Sean, and he takes my hand. He pulls me towards them and we walk till the city center.
