When the Kabras Come

By Zoefluff

Drama / Romance

Chapter 1

Chapter 1

 Amy Cahill was mad. very mad. Fiske had just informed her and her little brother, Dan, that some relatives would be staying with them in Grace's mansion. That had totally been bad enough. Not that she was saying the Cahills were bad to hang out with, it was just that Cahills don't get along with each other very well.  It could have probably worked out if it had only been Dan, Nellie, Fiske, and her, but they had Sinead living with them. Between Dan, Sinead, and Amy, Having any other of the younger Cahills with them could be catastrophic, because the ones that Amy and Dan didn't hate was probably on bad terms with Sinead.

 Now, to make matters worse, the Kabras were coming to stay with them. Of all the people in the world, Amy couldn't believe that Ian and Natalie had to stay with them. Because of this, Amy was stuck cleaning out rooms for Ian and Natalie, instead of hanging out with her friends or reading or anything other than cleaning. 

"Amy, do you think that these old Christmas cards should go in the attic?" Sinead asked, picking up a cardboard box off the dusty ground. She had opted to help Amy with her chores because she had extra time, and, frankly, she would be bored without Amy.

"um, maybe we should only put the ones we've received from people in the attic, and keep the unused ones down here somewhere so that we can use them next year." she replied, hefting up a box of unused envelopes that went with the contents of Sinead's box. the two started down the hall to a room that they used to house holiday supplies. As they walked down the long hallway, Amy admired the artwork on the walls. Even though they had enough money to stuff the place with expensive master pieces, barely any of the pieces in their house were very expensive in worth. They got most of the art from small artists, or, in a few cases, just hung up drawings that dan had made when he was little, or pictures of their close family and friends. 

"Sinead, do you think we should hang some art up in the Kabra's rooms?" Amy suddenly asked.

"yeah, that sounds, good."Sinead replied with a thoughtful look. "what pieces do you think we should use?"  

"well, we probably shouldn't put any of the drawings Dan made or the pictures of our relatives and friends. so that leaves the pieces we bought from the local artists and the ones from bigger artists." She said, racking her brain for good options.

"hmm. ok, so Natalie would probably like the paris fashion collection. As for Ian, well, I'm not sure what would fit for his room. Do you have something that would go with black white, and a little green?"

"um, we have a few scenery pieces from some rain forests in South America ?"

"Oh, yeah I know them. Should we go get the art, since these were the last boxes? "  Sinead said, plopping her box down on top of a crate of tree ornaments. Amy set her box on the ground next to a stack of old halloween consumes.

"Ok, let's go"
