2 days, that's all.
This morning dad woke me up, I was shocked cause he's barely at home.
He came to take some more papers for the moving and said that all this stress and hard work will pay off, that he does it just for us, to make our lives better.
11am and Alice just woke up.
"Alice you missed dad, he gave you a kiss on the forehead while you were sleeping though"
"Fuck I wanted to see him..did he say something ?"
"What do you mean by something?"
"Something about me? About us?"
Yet I still didn't know what she meant.
"Well he said that he's doing this for us and that we'll have better life in Sydney, you know what? I think I'm starting to like this idea.."
Me and Alice kept sharing out thoughts while lunch and as always, did nothing afterwords..tv mostly.
See, there's not much doing while you're on a break in here, there's a few malls and restaurants but I'm more of a homie person, and so as my sister..spending our time at home is the best trust me.
*ringing phone* Alice POV
"I got it" I said
"Hey babydoll! How are you? You were asleep and I didn't want to wake you up this morning so I gave you a kiss and left"
"Dad! I missed you so much" I screamed
"I know sweetheart but I swear it's for the best, if you're having some good time in that small town, just wait and see what you'll have there." He sounded happier than always
"I know dad, I really appreciate your hard work. I love you"
"I love you too sweetie, just one more day" he hung up
I know it sounded cheesy but not seeing him for a few days can seem like a whole year for me and Zoe, dad was the one who raised us, the one who supported us. You probably going to say "every dad does that" well that's not true, our dad had to act like a mom too when we grew up, to have the soft woman side we didn't have. I think he did a great job.
