"Where's mom?" I asked my father as he came to pick me up .
I only asked this because my parents are split up and my father only has me on weekends.
"Get in, we are running late" he said as he glanced at the time. I was confused but I got in and didn't ask questions. Maybe I was going to be late for dinner.
When I got home , it was empty. "Pack some clothes and things" he said as he checked his watch again.
Again I decided it was best not to ask questions, especially considering the worried look my father had on his face. So I walked upstairs and picked my things and jogged beck downstairs and we walked out to the car and he stuffed my two bags in the trunk, both of us not saying a word.
We drove in complete silence. Not even the radio was on. As I saw us heading towards the airport, I knew now it was time to ask.
" Why are we going to the airport and why did I pack my bags and where is mom?" I asked annoyed now.
" you are going to aunt Beckas and your mother is still at work" , he talked fast like it was a race to finish his sentence. Suddenly I wasn't annoyed but upset . Very upset.
" For how long?!".
"As long as your mother wants".
"And how long is that?!".
"Stop asking questions and just do what your mother tells you".
I said nothing for the rest of the way and even when we stood in line in the airport. Not even when I got aboard the plane. And me by myself on the plane just because I had no one to talk to.
Finally we landed and I found my aunt as soon as I walked off plane. There she was with the same soft brown hair as I have and bright red lipstick which thank god, I didn't have.
She hugged me tightly. "I missed you so much Lina".
I smiled slightly and hugged her lightly "missed you too".
"So honey , I moved to a new house. A beach house! Right by the beach, we can go all the time!" She talked all about it, while we drove there which was atleast 30 minutes.
When we finally got there, a room was set up for me. It was nice. It was the color of a soft purple with seashell decorations , which was a definite clisháe. But I could tell she worked hard on it so I was extremely appreciative.
Before I could take anything out of my bag , my aunt knocked and asked , "you want to go down by the beach?".
I shook my head " I'd love too but I'm really tired and beat. Tomorrow sounds good though".
She nodded " imma be out till 11, so if you need anything".
"Okay". And she was gone. I unpacked my bags and put them in the drawers. I checked my phone. No texts from my mom or dad. Not even from Gabe.
Gabe my boyfriend for two years. We were on and off a lot and right now. we were on. He had cheated before and we had fought a lot but we still cared for each other and we figured that , that's what mattered.
I put my phone down and pulled the blanket over me. I was so tired that as soon as my head hit the pillow I was out.
