9. Road Trip

February 10, 2006

 

Claudia's POV

 

I laid in bed and looked over at the time, 6:17 AM.

"Claudia! Wake up you have to get packing!" My mom yelled.

My father, Daryl, David and Andrew all went on a 10 day trip to Brisbane, they did it yearly. This year, my mom decided that all the mothers and kids should to a trip too. So, it was just me and my mom in the house. 

"What the hell?" I began, the light in my room just went out.

"Claudia, I'm going to do some groceries at the 24-hour store for the trip I'll be back in about 2 hours!"

"Okay!" I Heard the door slam shut and her drive away. Okay. Home alone and my light went out. I picked up some courage and went to go turn on my light, but it was already switched on. I went around trying all the other lights and concluded the power went out. My house was still pitch black as the sun hasn't even risen.

BANG!

That sounded an awful lot like my back door. I stopped at the top of my steps and listened very carefully, but I could only hear my own heart beating I ran over to the window upstairs, and my mother was already gone. Shit. I went back to the top of the stairs and I heard footsteps, I listened again and there seemed to be 2 people.

Okay, I need to see who this is and call the cops before I get killed.

I ran quickly and quietly down my stairs and into my kitchen. I grabbed the phone and a frying pan. I froze as I heard the footsteps pick up speed and I heard them stomping up the stairs. I ran over and hid at the bottom of the stairs where they couldn't see me and watched them walk very, very slowly walk down the hall. I took that moment to rethink life.

OH MY GOD. THEY ARE UPSTAIRS LOOKING FOR PEOPLE TO KILL. WHAT THE HELL IS HAPPENING. WHY AM I NOT CALLING THE COPS, WHY AM I SO CLOSE TO THEM, BUT I CAN'T TELL WHO THEY ARE!

I said a quick prayer for my life as I put all my effort in being as quiet as possible while sneaking up the stairs.

At least I know, that if I die, I die knowing the lyrics to Boulevard of Broken Dreams.

I made it to the top and saw that the people were turning to enter a room. MY ROOM. THEY WANTED TO KILL ME!

I then did the worst thing possible.

 

I.

Dropped.

The.

Pan.

 

The noise made them turn around and look at me. I froze dead in my spot. They moved towards me and I ran for my life. I bolted down the hallway, but not fast enough. One guy grabbed my wrist and I screamed.

"Shhh!" The other hissed in my ear.

"What the f-" I began and I turned around.

I screamed as I saw the face in the flashlight he was holding directed at his face.

"MICHAEL WHAT THE FUCK DO YOU AND CALUM THINK YOU ARE DOING SCARING THE LIVING SHIT OUT OF ME WHEN I'M HOME ALONE AT 6:30 AM!!!"

"We weren't trying to scare you, Cal slept over, and my mum woke us up to come here to wake you up to get ready for the trip."

"Then why are you sneaking? And why did you come in through my back door?"

"Well, Mike and I saw your mum leave and knowing she locked the door and your dad wasn't home, and we assumed you were still asleep, we know you never lock your back door so we came in through there and we snuck so we could scare you to wake you up." he smiled smugly.

I gave them an intense death glare as I spoke, "You guys are the biggest dicks on the planet."

"Well, I guess your right, because we do HAVE the biggest dicks on the planet." Michael smiled. Calum and I laughed, and I said,

"Okay! No more! Want some breakfast?" 

"Sure" We all headed down and made some cereal for us all and watched morning cartoons, my favorite. When we were done we said goodbye and they went back home to pack. I sighed as I cleaned up and started mentally preparing myself to survive 10 days with these boys. Too bad Emma couldn't come, she was on her own vacation.

I went upstairs and began packing and the power came back. Thank god.
