CHAPTER 1: TALKING WITH MACY
I came back from my babysitting job just a few houses away from our house. I was in our doorstep when my mobile phone rang. I looked at the screen and it was my best friend Macy on the other line. I slide my finger to the green icon to answer.
"Hey, what's up girl?" I said for an intro words.
"Yeah, what's up? What are you doing now?" she asked as I took out my keys and unlocked the front door.
"Well, I just came back from babysitting in Mrs. Duncan's house for her 7 years old daughter." I said as I closed the door and locked it back. I am alone in the house since my parents were still at work and my older brother Shane was somewhere with his friends.
"So, any plans for tomorrow?" I was in my room now and I put her in a loudspeaker so that I can do whatever I want to do while talking to her.
"I do not know but I guess I still be in this house in my room reading my favorite books or watching Netflix that's it." I replied to her biting my lower lips. What else should I be doing if I am not babysitting? Well, I love reading books, watching Netflix, learning to cook to survive since my parents are always busy with their works. I am not complaining because they really are the best parents to us. It is just that they were busy lately and their working shift was changing into the night hours.
Therefore, I guess I am always alone in this house for almost a month and my brother is not that kind of person who will stay more since he is 18 having fun before going to college. While me, I am turning 16 few weeks from now and allowed to go out to party as long as careful and be safe are the main reminder to our parents to their children.
"Come on, Shy. Let's go shopping because in a few days it will be our first day of school and I do not want to wear my old clothes." I can see Macy even through phone with the expression in her face. I know her too well when she will beg me to go with her. I know I cannot say no to my best friend even I know she has a lot of clothes in her closet she just love going to the mall and checking out for some cute guys. We were the same age months older than I was but she has been in a relationship quite long since 13 even lose her virginity to her first boyfriend and broke up.
I lose mine when I was 15 that was last year of course with my ex-boyfriend Stan we were both virgins when we decided to do it. I do not have regrets about because I know we both love each other but sadly, we decided to break up because we both know it will not work out with long distance relationship.
I decided to be single for a while after Stan left. I am happy without any relationship so that I can do whatever I want and go wherever I please.
"Okay, okay, let's go shopping with you tomorrow and it should not be too early because you know me better that I hate getting up early." I said yes to her but reminded too.
"Yes, I know that. How about 11 in the morning I will pick you up and we will eat our lunch somewhere?"
"That is sounds good to me." I agreed.
"Okay then, goodnight and see you tomorrow. Mwah, mwah, mwah."
"Okay night. Mwah, mwah, mwah." I said before the line cut out. That was our signature like bulgur kisses friendship. here…
