I got up at around 9, and checked who was already awake. Phil wasn't in his room, Maya's door was shut, so I knocked and asked her if she was up.
"Yeah, " She replied, her voice shaking slightly.
"Can I come in?"
I walked in, and Maya was sitting on her bed, with her head in her hands.
"Are you okay?"
"Y- No. My mum texted me this morning, I'm almost old enough to move out, so when I turn 16 I'm taking my stuff and finding a flat or somewhere to stay."
I sat down next to her, trying to calm her down, she looked really stressed.
I'm sure Alex would let you stay here."
"What about his parents?" She whimpered.
"They don't actually live here, they live over in America, but they want a room here for when they come over." I informed her.
"Oh," She sat up slightly.
"So, how old are you anyway?"
"Oh, I'm 15, 16 on Monday."
"Oh, do you wanna go get some breakfast then?"
"Sure." She smiled, and we walked downstairs together, talking.
We got a bowl of cereal each and sat together on the sofa. Phil was on the armchair, and Alex was lying over the other chair.
"Any plans for today then guys?" I asked, breaking the awkward silence.
"I was just gonna stay in bed all day, but Alex decided I wasn't. But, I'm gonna stay in I think." Phil answered, watching something on Tv.
"I'm seeing my mates later, and then I think I'll stay home too. " Alex called, walking into the kitchen.
"I think I'll stay home then." I stated, finishing my breakfast.
"Oh, Maya, we're gonna need to go back to school tomorrow, so I'll give you a lift if you want." Alex said, jumping on the sofa beside us.
"Oh, yes please. But, I thought you couldn't drive?"
"Not a car, no." He laughed. Alex rode a bike, I could imagine Maya riding it with him actually.
"Can I go out for a little walk then?" Maya asked, shyly.
"You don't need to ask, Maya." Phil replied, "But it might be a good idea to not get lost."
"Yeah, I'll take my phone, and if I do, you can help me can't you." She laughed. "I'll go get ready."
Once she left I talked to the others, while we were all still here.
"Guys, It's her birthday on Monday." I told them.
"Oh, we're gonna have to go birthday shopping then." Phil nodded.
"Well, she's turning 16, and wants to move out of her parent's house, Alex, is there any chance she could stay here do you think?"
"Of course, why wouldn't there be?"
"I was just checking, but Phil's right, we should go shopping."
"Okay, well we need to actually go shopping anyway, so..." Alex stated.
"We could drive to Asda tonight? Get ordinary shopping as well." Phil suggested.
"Yeah, lets do that then."
"Good, I've got to go now anyway, see you later." Alex said, getting up and walking away. We had a plan to make a great birthday for Maya. We just had to do it.
I've got like a day alone, this is probably what I'll be doing all day. And by the way, I hope you all know Asda is a supermarket, otherwise that possibly made little sense xD Have a nice day, and thanks for reading :)
