2. Two

"Who lives in a pineapple under the sea? SpongeBob Square pants" Mia sang along as the theme song of SpongeBob Squarepants came on TV. Angel decided to join in too. "SpongeBob Squarepants, SpongeBob Squarepants. SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS!" the two of them laughed as the theme song ended.

After watching the, Mia changed the TV station to E entertainment. For some reason Mia had an interest on what happens in celebrities' lives, even when she didn't understand what was going on she still watched the channel.

"Up next we have an exclusive backstage interview with the guys," Maria announced on the TV. I wonder who they're interviewing? Angel thought to herself. She sat there, listening closely to Maria. The show filmed a different location showing the other E news presenter, Terrence.

"I am back here with the world's most famous boyband, One Direction," Terrence smiled towards the camera. Angel's eyes widened when he announced One Direction was going to be interviewed. The camera zoomed out of Terrence's face, revealing all five members of the band sitting on their chairs, waving "Hello," at the camera.

They all looked so different with their new hairstyles. Angel's eyes focused on Harry's. Harry's hair seemed to have gotten longer over the years. He still had that charming smile on his face. The flashbacks came back in Angel's mind. She tried to turn away from the screen to stop the flashbacks but couldn't.

"Mummy, you ok?" Mia's gently placed her small hands on her mother's lap. Angel nodded.

"Yeah, I'm fine. I was just thinking."

Mia turned her attention back onto the television. She laughed when Harry was telling a funny story about their fans. If only she knew that Harry was her dad.

Angel stood up and walked to the kitchen. She searched through the kitchen cupboard but couldn't choose what snack to eat. She looked into the fridge and grabbed a pot of strawberry yogurt. After a short time Mia walked into the kitchen and looked through the fridge. When Angel's hungry, Mia gets hungry too. She shut the fridge door and frowned.

"What's wrong baby?" Angel asked.

"We have no orange jelly," she said. "Can we buy some?"

""Why don't we make a list of things to buy and we can go to Waitrose and buy them today," Angel grabbed a pen and paper then started writing a shopping list.

"Can we buy Pringles?" Mia asked.

"Yep and we need, milk, bread, bananas, lettuce..." Angel wrote down a long list of items to buy. Mia ran out of the kitchen and returned a few minutes later, wearing her shoes and coat "We going now?" she asked.

"Let me get my stuff first and then we can go," Angel said while walking into the corridor. She took her coat from the hanger and put it on.

"Are you ready to go?" Angel asked.

"Yeah," Mia lifted her arms up. Angel grabbed her bag and put in her purse, phone and shopping list inside. They then headed out of the apartment.


Angel pushed the shopping trolley while looking for things to buy in Waitrose. Mia walked ahead looking at the items on the shelf.

"Mummy look, they have cocoa pops," she pointed at the chocolate cereal on the top shelf. Angel stretched her hand up, grabbed the box and placing it in the trolley. They carried on searching round and stopped near the vegetable and fruits aisle.

"Mia what fruit would you like me to buy?" Angel asked. Mia thought for a while and then decided which to have. "Orange," she exclaimed throwing her hands in the air. Angel picked up the oranges and placed it in the trolley.

"Look daddy, I want one of those," a young girl the same age as Mia was talking from a distance. Mia stood still watching the girl. She was with her dad and they seemed happy together.

The little girl's dad lifted her up and helped her reach for something on the top shelf. "Thank you daddy, I love you so much," she smiled and gave her dad a kiss on the cheek. "I love you too, sweetie," the dad gave her a hug and gave a kiss back. "Now let's go find mum." Mia watched the two walk away together. Her eyes were tearing up. Where is my daddy? Why don't I have a daddy? Does daddy not love us? She thought to herself.

"Mia?" Angel called, but Mia didn't respond as she stared at the place she saw the little girl with her dad.

"Mia," Angel placed her hand on Mia's shoulder and turned her round only to see the sad face covered in tears. "Aw baby, what's the matter?" Angel asked worried. She bent down and brought Mia into a hug. "Tell mummy what's wrong."

"Why don't I have a daddy? I want daddy," she cried a little too loud, getting some odd looks from people walking by. Angel hated to see her daughter upset, it made her want to cry too but she held it in.

"Aw, don't cry. Daddy will be with us soon." Angel said even though she knew he wasn't coming or so she thought. "C'mon why don't we finish shopping and get home then after lunch we'll go to the kids play centre alright," she hoped that will cheer her daughter up a little. Mia nodded her head slowly and wiped her tears.

After getting everything they needed they hurried to the check out. "That would be £38.67 please," the lady at the check-out smiled. Angel paid £40 by cash and told her to keep the change. She printed out the receipt and handed it to Angel. "Thank you for shopping at Waitrose have a lovely day," she smiled.

On the way home, Mia stayed quiet. She kept her head down low. Angel sighed, knowing how upset Mia is. She wished Harry stayed with her when she was pregnant. He could be here right now being the father Mia wanted.
