I walked through the forest, on my way to my home. Anubis house, my new home. I know, you never thought I would have done it did you? Well I did, I just wish I didn't need to say goodbye like that.
It has been two days and I'm already going crazy! To make it easier for myself I planned to stay in my room and pack until I go to Anubis but no! My mother wouldn't let me stay in my room, she made me stay downstairs with my family, because she likes to see me suffer. After all that happened in America she still doesn't appreciate me.
I'm supposed to leave tomorrow but all I've done is suffer and I can't take it anymore, so I'm leaving early. Like they'll care anyway, they won't even drive me to school because they're too busy saying goodbye to their precious little girl. Forget them.
I pack the last of my stuff and sighed, exhausted. I sat on my bed and looked at my room. The red walls are fading and without my sick puppies posters, they look pretty bare. All of my little decorations were gone, including all of the little stickers saying 'keep calm and love rock'. It didn't even look like MY room anymore, just a simple, empty room. I shook my head at the sight and took a deep breath.
I walked towards my door only to have it open before I even reach for the handle. Piper looked at me with her bright perfect smile.
"Hey Trixie! I was just wondering if-" she started but she paused when she saw the suitcases I was holding.
"Where are you going?" she asked.
"Back to Anubis" I answered simply. The gleaming smile that was once on her face, disappeared.
"So soon? Why?" she asked glumly. I started to feel bad.
"I can't take it anymore, all I've done in this house is suffer and I've had enough" I answered truthfully, hoping she would get the hint.
"But Patricia, you can't leave! We're your family!" she protested. I saw a tear run down her cheek, I shook my head.
"No you're my family, look Piper, you don't know how it feels to be a disappointment. Such a disappointment that your parents don't even want you there, I don't want to deal with it, I don't want to feel like nothing"
"I know I don't see you much but, what if I never see you again" she whispered, I smiled apologetically.
"You will,one way or another, we're twins remember?" she smiled slightly.
"But-"she started but I didn't let her finish.
"Please Piper, you always get what you want, can you please just let me get what I want for once?" I asked, trying to hide my slight annoyance. She looked uneasy and didn't reply. I grimaced and then pushed passed her, heading towards the front door.
As I reached the bottom of the stairs, outside of the door, I heard Piper call out to me.
"Patricia Wait! I-" But before she finished the sentence I was already out of the door.
So here I am, walking up to Anubis house a day after leaving my home. Or should I call it my old home now? Whatever, I just can't wait to get into my room, after spending the night in the woods I'm starved, tired and rough. I turned the knob on the big wooden door and stepped into the house.
It felt like it was my first time here. I smiled at the sight of the familiar wooden pattern across the walls. I was met by my house mother Trudy.
"So nice to have you back my lovely! How was your summer?" I thought of how I had to leave Eddie and tried to hide my sadness with a fake smile.
"Great thanks Trudy!" she smiled warmly, and I returned it. I guess Trudy is the closest thing I have to a mother, she cares. I then wondered whether my house mates actually care about me, I mean, I need to know, I live with them.
"Trudy could you do me a favour?" I asked giving her a sweet, innocent smile. Trudy gave me a questioning look.
"Sure, what is it?"
"Could you tell everyone that I won't be returning to school this year, don't ask why I just want to know what they'll do" Trudy nodded, understanding.
"Okay if that's what you want, put your suitcases in Victor's office, he won't be here until tomorrow and hide somewhere" she instructed. I smiled.
"Thanks Truds!" I exclaimed hugging her.
As everyone was at the table for dinner, I pressed my back to wall outside of the room, to hear what they're saying.
"Trudy, where's Patricia?" I heard someone ask. It sounds like Joy. I heard a couple of footsteps before Trudy spoke.
"Sorry my lovelies, I'm afraid Patricia won't be returning this year" I heard a chorus of gasps. There was a buzz of conversation.
"Why wouldn't she tell us" " I don't want Trixie to go" " why didn't she at least say goodbye" " I hope he's okay" I was touched by their worrying and decided that this is definitely where I want to be. I swiftly stepped into the room.
"What's with all the long faces?" I asked innocently. Everyone's heads snapped up and before I knew it I was being tackled with hugs.
"PATRICIA!" everyone yelled. I laughed.
"Miss me?" I smirked. Joy hit my arm playfully.
"Of course we did! I thought you-"
"Well I was thinking of it but I wanted to see how you would react" I lied. She smiled and hugged me once again. Well, this is definitely where I belong.
England, I'm in England. I stepped off of the plane, got my bags and walked into the airport. My dad is supposed to pick me up soon. I waited in the waiting area for 5 minutes until a man came up to me. He had grey hair , blue eyes and tan-ish skin. I kind of look like him but if you saw me and him in different places you wouldn't think he was my father.
"Hello Edison" he greeted a wide smile plastered on his face. I stood up and returned his smile.
"Hey Dad" I breathed, nervously, I was so nervous I couldn't even correct him on my name. His eyes seemed to light up when I called him 'Dad' I guess he really wants to make this work. When we got into his car, we spoke to each other but it was the usual small talk, 'how was your flight' ' how do you like England so far' and that.
"Here we are, Sweet residence" he said, stopping the car in front of the house. The house is pretty big, not as big as my house back home but still big. The house is rectangular and is painted a creamy colour. The windows were big with a brown window pane. It had a homey feel to it, which is nice for a change.
I got out of the car staring at the house. The cold breeze hit me making me shiver. My dad took my suitcases and led me into the house. It was even bigger inside than it looked outside , the entrance was a wide space. To the left of it were the Study and the living room. To the right of it was what looked like a dining room there were other rooms beyond that but I couldn't see what they were from where I was standing.
My dad led me up the stairs and into my room. I looked around, it was kind of big, almost as big as my room back home. The walls were blue, there was a cream desk at the corner of the room and the double bed was in the centre. I saw a couple of action figures on the bedside table, it kind of looked like he made this room for me ages ago. I smiled at the sight and collapsed on my bed. Taking a deep breath, I took Edwards guitar out of its case and looked at it.
"We made it bro" I murmured.
