Chapter 8

Kelly

 

Midnight. That’s when the bright blinding lights crashed through my shades. I heard a weird siren go off and then the beep of a car horn.

What the hell is going on? I thought.

I stealthily got out of bed and put on my robe. I sleep in my underwear so I thought I should put it on. I slowly tiptoed silently to my mom’s room and opened the door. Both my parents weren’t there and their covers were torn off of their bed. I slowly crept to my brothers room. Nada. My sisters room, Nope. Nobody was in their beds. I crept downstairs and saw the kitchen light was on. I slowly walked over to hear voices.

“It’s midnight. She’s asleep. I thought you said you would pick her up tomorrow at 10:30?!” My mom said.

“We had to come here today. I’m really sorry, ma’am,” someone said. I didn’t recognize the voice. I slowly peeked through the living room ‘window’ that looked into the kitchen. There were 2 men in black suits, both tall. They looked like government officials. I didn’t get why they were here.

“Just because we said it would be 10:30, ma’am, doesn’t mean it can be that way for everyone. We wanted to pick everyone up at 10:30 but it just can’t be done.”

“Well, I’ll go get her up,” my dad said. He sounded strangled. I saw my brother and sister sitting at the table stiffly.

“Her name’s Kelly, right? Just to make sure.”

“Yes. Kelly Knightshift,” my father said. I didn’t want to try and run past the kitchen door to get to my room so I just walked right into the kitchen and said, “Uh, actually I’m up already.”

“Kelly! How much did you hear?” My mom said quickly.

“Where am I going?” I asked.

“You didn’t tell her?” one of the officials asked.

“Uh, no,” My dad gulped.

“Well, go and pack your bags, Kelly. We have to leave here in fifteen. You’ll have that much time to say goodbye,” here he coughed accusingly. “And explain.”

And with that they both walked out of the kitchen.

“Mom? Dad?” I asked them. “What’s going on?”

“The government said that apparently you’ve been chosen to, uh, go to, uh, Japan.” My brother said slowly, stuttering. My 6 year old sister, Lizzy looked over at me.

“I’ll miss you Kelly,” and with that she jumped off her chair and gave me a hug.

“How does everyone know about this but me?!” I practically yelled.

“Honey, we tried to explain it to the little ones first, before you. You might not be coming home….”

And here my mother buried her head in my dad’s shoulder, sniffling turning into full-on crying. I could hear her sobs in his shirt. I walked over to them and gave them a hug each, my mother bawling, my dad stiffer than a board. I then bent down to my eight year old brother, Jonathan and gave him a hug. Then did the same to Lizzy. I then turned back to my mother.

“You’re being so strong about this, honey,” she said through hiccuping sobs.

“Are–” I tried to form a comprehensible sentence. “–are my bags packed?”

“Yes, they’re already in the van,” my dad explained.

“Well then we have ten minutes to kill…” I smiled, realizing the pun I accidently made against my favor. Sadly my mother didn’t like it and continued to cry.

“I want you to know I love you all.” I said and gave one more round of hugs.

“Time’s up, Kelly. Let’s go,” one of the men said.

“Ok.” I managed to say and followed them toward the front door. They opened it and there was a black van there waiting.

“I love you.” I said slowly to my parents. “I love you.” I whispered to myself.

I walked out.
