2. Chapter 2: The Long Week
The rest of my school week had flown my miserably, as per usual. Jade's sneering commentary, Aunt Hope's constant groans, late buses, early rain and long lessons. The weekend would be slightly better, at least I could shut myself up in my room for 48 hours. I didn't count on one thing though, Aunt Hope.
"You can't keep being an anti-social emo with no goals in life Nina!" She barged on, "you need to socialize. 'Hang out' with some girls in your year."
"None of the girls in my year like me. Which is ok, because I don't like them either." I explained.
"Stop being so pessimistic." She sighed. I shrugged my shoulders. Pessimistic or not, Aunt Hope was annoying to everyone.
"I'm going to my room." I announced.
"One sec" she called after me, I turned around to face her, "There's a local band playing a free concert in the park tonight, it would be the perfect opportunity for you to make some friends. Go, have fun." She suggested.
"I don't know, it's not really my thing." I told her.
"Fine. Then you can stay at home and do your homework." She instructed.
"You know what? I might go to that concert after all." I agreed. She rolled her eyes and I went up to my room to finish watching my TV program on my laptop.
AN: Sorry for the short chapter, just a quick little cog in the overall mechanism of the plot. Thanks for reading!
