A/N There is a bit if swearing in this. That's why I posted it as Yellow. Please excuse the swear words, I personally think it's funnier and cooler with just a few swear words. Thanks xx Kaitlyn
I woke up at 8 am and stretched out. It's not stretching if you don't look like a dying seal. Haha, so funny (not really, sarcasm). I felt like going out so I jumped out of bed and got in the shower
"Jessy?!" I heard my younger sister, Annie, call out to me.
"What? I'm tryin' to have a shower here!" I shouted back over the thumping of the water on my back.
"Mum said she wants to talk to you!"
I sighed and got out of the shower. I knew that if mum wanted to talk to me it was no use trying to get out of it. She was as stubborn as hell, let me tell ya.
I ran downstairs and found my mum in the kitchen.
"What is it, mum?" I asked her trying not to show how frustrated I was because she made me get out of the shower.
"Sweetie, I just want to tell you I love you and if anything were to happen to you, your father and I are right here," she suddenly said, my father appearing at the last moment and putting his arm on her shoulder.
"You got me out of the shower... To say... I LOVE YOU?! Gosh mum, sometimes I really don't understand you. But I love you too." I smiled.
Mum looked at dad worryingly, then turned back to me and simply smiled, nodding back upstairs.
I looked at them for a moment, confused, then shrugged and wandered upstairs back to the sweet bliss of the shower.
Ring ring, ring ring!
I jumped out of the shower, wrapping my warm towel around me, and ran to my bedside to get my phone.
"HELLOOOOOOOO JESSY!!!" Was what I heard from the other end of the line.
"Gosh Tess, you have to learn to be quieter!" I told her while giggling.
I heard her laugh on the other end of the line, then I heard, "Jessy... Can you come to my house in a few minutes?"
She sounded so serious and, well, depressed. It wasn't like her. Usually she was bubbly and fun, which meant something had happened.
"I'll be right over, Tess-kun!" I cried into the phone.
I heard Tess sigh then say, "You watched more anime, didn't you?"
"Yep. BYE SEE YA LATER." Then I hung up.
10 minutes later I was at Tess' house and what I saw was unusual. There was a red Jeep out the front and Tess was standing next to the driveway looking scared. Instinct kicking in, I immediately ran to my best friend and asked her what was wrong.
"I came home from the hairdresser's with mum and this red Jeep was parked in the driveway. We went inside to see who the fuck was in our house, and there was a man standing in our lounge room watching TV! When mum asked him why he was there and why on earth he was watching our television, he said we had to move out because he was taking back the house-" At that point Tess burst into tears.
I hugged her and said, "Doesn't your older brother have a flat? You could go live with him. After all, it's only you and your mother."
"And Tiger," she corrected.
Tiger was Tess' tabby cat. She was very attached to him since they'd been together since Tess was 2.
"And Tiger. Surely there would be enough room for a 16 year old girl, a 21 year old boy, a cat and a 45 year old woman?" I said trying to calm her nerves.
"No... The flat is much too small." Tess burst into tears again before she continued. "Where are we going to go? We have nowhere! Dad lives in fucking New York with his 23 year old girlfriend, Tom's flat is too small and we have no house!" More tears.
I hugged Tess tighter than I ever had before.
"Tess? Do you want to come live with my family for a while until you can get a house?" I offered.
"Really, Jessy? Oh thank you thank you thank you!! You are the best friend ever!! Are you sure your parents will be OK with it?" She responded.
I nodded and we walked back to my house. Halfway there, a large flash of white light broke across the town. We ducked into an alleyway and covered our heads.
"What is that?!?!" Tess screamed.
I shook my head and said, "I don't know, but it's not normal, that's for sure..."
"Nah, you don't say?!" Tess remarked with her cheeky attitude.
We ran to my house as quickly as we could, not even noticing that the life around us had disappeared.
When we got to my house, we ran through the door and found... Nothing. The place was deserted. No furniture, no parents and no Annie.
"What on Earth is happening here?!?!" I cried.
I ran out to the street and sprinted across the road to Mrs. Greene's house. I pounded on the door. Nothing. I smashed down the door and looked inside. Her house was the same as mine; deserted.
What on earth was happening?
