"Perk up," my mom nudges my arm and slightly laughs after many attempts of getting her to tell the pilot to turn back around.

"Tessa Marie," she warns after a grunt and rolling of eyes.

"This should be considered kidnap," I look over at her with dramatically wide eyes after a moment of silence.

I could tell she was stressing and upset by the way she was constantly messing with her hair as a distraction. The habit I had inherited, and I only did when it was serious.

I sigh and look out my window, feeling bad for the snarky comments... I had been making them since we woke up at the crack of dawn.

She couldn't blame me, though. I had to leave everything behind and move over seas only in a matter of weeks.

"Look, Tess. I'm sorry. I know it's hard," she sympathetically lays her hand on my bare thigh, then brings it up and rubs my chin. I fight back tears but fake a smile for her satisfaction.

"But, a new school and home might be a good thing! New friends, new teachers, a new beginning," she smiles, flashing me her award winning pearly whites. I nod and lay my head on her shoulder and let her soft brown hair brush across my face as she leans down and kisses my forehead.

I loved my mom, but saying the words she wanted me to say and feeling the way she wanted me to feel couldn't and wouldn't happen.

I would never say that I felt at home, and I would never feel that way. Not here, not in Australia.

I had already made a promised myself.

A/N:

I know, I'm sorry it's a short and boring chapter. It also might not make sense, but it all ties together in the next couple of chapters, so stay tuned. ;)

Bye friends:P
