"Maya, could come here for a minute?" I heard my mother,Catherine yell for me.
I have to admit that I was a bit afraid because, I do get into lots of trouble, and I wanted to make sure this wasn't about something else I did that somebody found out about.. Although I don't remember doing anything recently, mostly because my mother threatened to take my laptop if I didn't get my grades up soon. Which means no yelling at principals for telling me what to wear for a long time.
I ran downstairs in a hurry wanting to get the yelling over with.
"What did I do, was it a lie? I'm sure it was, I know people who like to get me into trouble.. please i'm sorry, I really didn't do anything!" I said, and obviously I was a bit too scared of what I did, and quite frankly I think I should know what I did before I get in trouble for it.
"Nothing sweetie I just wanted to tell that we are- wait, is there something I should know about, Maya." My mother replied, now with a stern look on her face.
"Nope, not this time. I just wanted to make sure.." I said.
And now i'm sort of wondering, what else could she be calling me down here for, because if i'm being completely honest, the only thing me and my mom would ever really talk about would be what I did wrong. Which kind of sucks.
"Okay but I may have to look more into this, just to make sure you aren't lying.." she said and really I just wanted her to get on with it..
"Okay anyways, were moving!" She said, so confident.. and really I wasn't too happy about it. And I think my mom could tell but she struggled to keep her smile on her face.
I didn't say anything, I just stared at her and then rain back upstairs to my room and shut the door. Behind the door, I wasn't starting to pack and smiling and being happy to move. Instead I was balling my eyes out. I really didn't want to move, because things were actually starting to go better.
Then suddenly I heard a knock on my door, "Maya can I come in." I heard my mom say from behind the door.
I really just wanted her to leave me alone though. How could she not have told me this sooner?
"Maya i'm sorry but I just want a change, me and your father both, and I think it will be great for you as well. So I wanted to ask you to get packing, now." She said barging in quickly yet calmly.
"What? Now? Why didn't you tell me sooner?" I yelled feeling sympathy for my mom at the same time.
So I just said "Okay, i'm sorry, I-I'll get packing.." I said just because I wanted my mom to feel somewhat better about this whole incident.
And so I did, I still can't believe this though, she should have told me sooner but I just had to accept that she was probably just afraid of what I would say. And she had every reason to be. But if moving will make my mom happy again, then I'll do it.
