2. chapter 1
"Good work today lily" the art teacher noded at me, I grabbed my backpack and left for home.
My name is lily, I'm 16 and live in England. I am not really a very sociable person and find myself at the back of every classroom. I keep my head down and try to keep a low profile but even that doesn't work.
"Hey wait up!" I hear a voice behind me I turn to see Emily, Emily has been my best friend since as long as I can remember. We do everything together, homework, day trips, sleepovers. I know babyish, but we only have each other and don't really know any different.
"What you doing after school tonight?" She turned to me whilst walking across the road. I shrugged, " I don't know?" She smiled, "how about I go round your place?" I noded and we turned the corner to my road, we walked down the pavement until we saw my house, I froze when I saw it, Emily stopped and gasped, "what the hell!!" I ran into my house to see boxes of furniture and items being moved into a moving van, my mom was in the kitchem signing a letter, I burst in "What's going on?" I felt panicky inside, she looked at me and sighed, "lily we need to talk" I noded "your father, he was offered a job a few months ago in may, that job I was telling you about?" I noded "well he took it" I shrugged "why do we have a van outside then?" A tear formed in her eye "it's in Australia" I felt a tear in my eye, I tried to stop in but it fell, "honey I'm sorry, I wish it wasnt like this but I can't leave your father" I shook my head, " you didn't think about me, what about Emily, I'm happy mom" she started crying, "honey please we leave tomorrow morning I can't have this" I stopped crying "tomorrow!!?" She cried harder "I am going out and you can't stop me" she cried and I pulled Emily out the door, "Lily are you ok? Where are we going!?" I shook my head and cried into her shoulder.
