I got up the next day around ten thirty; seeing my dad had already left, leaving me a note I showered put on some clothes and went for an adventurous look in the town of Sydney. I walked out on the road, the neighbourhood we had moved to was quiet; some kids were running around and some were riding their bikes. Two houses away from mine, I saw four boys coming towards me laughing. Maybe they could help me with directions, to be honest I had absolutely no idea where I was headed. They came closer; my heart started pounding, why was I suddenly getting nervous? The four boys were quite good looking and they each had their own style.
I took a deep breath and gathered my courage. "Excuse me, can you tell me which way to go, if I'm heading towards town?" "Uhm, if you're headed towards town, then you're going the wrong way. You need to turn around and when you get to the end of the street, make a left and then take the bus to town" a cute curly haired chirpy boy said, as he pointed in the direction behind me. "Oh okay, thank you" I said in my thick British accent. "You're not from here are you?" An Asian looking boy(also quite cute) asked "Is it that obvious? Haha" I tried to stay cool, but it was hard when they all four were staring at me.
"Yeah, I assume you're from the UK?" A blonde haired boy with blue eyes said, he was really cute, I nodded "Yes, correct I'm from south of London". "Are you here in Sydney on holiday?" A boy with purple coloured hair asked "No, I just moved here with my dad". Their eyes widened a bit. "Oh okay, so do you live in this neighbourhood?" The purple haired boy said "Yeah, just after those two houses, that's my house" I pointed in the direction of my house. "Hey we live really close to each other then, I live in the house we're standing in front of" the blonde blurted "Great!" I smiled and looked at the house, that had the same facade as mine. "So what's your name?" The Asian boy asked "Lexa, and you guys?" I told them my middle name, cause they would probably think my real name was stupid.
"I'm Ashton" the chirpy curly haired boy said, "I'm Calum" the Asian looking boy said "I'm Michael, you're pretty" the purple haired boy smirked "I'm Luke, nice to meet you Lexa" the blonde said and shook my hand. I felt my face slowly turning red "Well nice to meet you boys, I guess I'll see you around sometime Luke, considering we live two house away from each other. And thanks for the help" I was all out of breath and turned around before things got awkward. All four boys said goodbye in unison which sounded totally adorable, I couldn't help but laugh a little to myself.
I made my way to the bus and went to town. It was actually really exciting; the shops were cool, and the town was nice. When I was done looking around I took the bus back home. When I got to the house I saw my dad's car wasn't here, so he still had to be at work. I looked at the time; almost five o'clock. After going inside the house I prepared some dinner, ate a little bit and left some for my dad for when he got home. I then turned on the TV and watched some Australia's next top model. I wasn't really listening to the TV, my mind kept going back to the handshake between me and that boy Luke. I was getting a tinkling feeling in my stomach just thinking of it.
My dad came home around nine thirty that evening; he looked tired and exhausted. I warmed the rest of the dinner for him. He ate it and then we talked a little bit about how his and my day had been. "Are you working late everyday? But then I won't get to see you that much, and you're probably tired when you come home, so you're probably wanting to go straight to bed" I was a little angry that my dad's work already made him come home late, I was looking forward to spending some time with him before I would start school. "I'm sorry Zelda, but I promise you, this weekend we'll do something together, okay? You're going to have me all to yourself" My dad gave me the puppy eyes "Okay dad, but please just don't turn into a dad whose gonna neglect his daughter because of work, okay!" I tried to sound like a grown up "You know I love you, you're my little star Zelda" he kissed my forehead and hugged me. "I love you too dad. Goodnight" I hugged him back quickly pecking him on the cheek before heading to my room. "Goodnight honey" he smiled tiredly and walked to his room.
When I came to my room, I looked through all the boxes until I found my guitar. I took it out and started playing a little bit; I always felt so Taylor Swifty when I played the guitar. I played a quick Green Day song before going to bed.
