I hope you guys like the premiere! I finally spent some time working on it. This series is going to be so fun to make. I edited every picture! It was a lot of extra work 😛 I only added my name that’s it. BTW, everything that is a thought or narration is italicized.
I was going to be late for school AGAIN. Who wants to be late in may? That was when everything is happening. School is winding down, pranks are being played, and finals were over.
“Jake, JAKE, we’re going to be late!” I yelled to my older brother.
“Ok, ok Novie calm down!” he said.
“Well, sorry, but I don’t want to miss anything in my very exciting life!” I shot back, “and stop calling me Novie, Novia is wayyy more sophisticated.”
“I’m done packing my lunch lets….” he started
“WHAT ARE YOU WEARING??!” I burst out.
“I was wondering when you’d notice,” he replied with a smile, ” It is pretty cold, I mean 65 degrees and raining isn’t exactly beautiful, especially in Dallas.”
“But a sweatshirt, of a Pennsylvania football team? How cheesy!”
We continued bantering, but seriously, we were just joking. After my mom died, Dad started working a lot more. Without my brother, Jake I don’t know what I would have done. He is my best friend. I brushed this sentimental thought out of my mind and we headed to school.
I sat outside the foster home, looking at the letter. The news was still setting in. I re-read the letter.
Dear Mrs. Conroy,
I am withdrawing my custody over Ashia.
Ash Ashia, This is the best thing for you. I’m super busy. Love you, maybe when thing are better we can work something out.- Dad Ray
The mail wasn’t much, just a magazine and a letter. Something caught my eye. It was a letter advertising a camp called “Camp Summer.” I went to chuck it. I would be spending my whole summer having fun with my brother, at the beach or pool.
“Wait, what’s that,” Jake asked.
“Just some silly brochure for a camp,” I retorted.
“You should go Novie!”
“WHY?! I’ll be with you all summer? ” I questioned.
“Maybe I should tell you,” he replied.
“Tell me what?” I said panic rising in my voice.
“I’m not going to be with you this summer I’m going to OSU, to take pre-collage classes.”
“What? Where is OSU? Why didn’t you ask me first? You don’t you care about me do you?!” I said in a furry.
I ran to my room. Why would my brother leave me?! It was too soon. I was already dreading him going to college in two years. I let the tears stream down my face. What a rotten brother I had. I knew that wasn’t the truth, but I was angry no matter what he said.
“Oh, Ashia, I’m so glad I bumped into you. I would like to inform you that you’ll be staying with a new foster family in a few weeks.” Mrs. Conroy announced
“Excuse me?” I asked
“Well, I thought this was what’s best for you.”
“NO, I just want to go home to my dad. Why can’t you send me back to him?” I whined.
“You already know the answer to that Aisha. After camp the family will come and pick you up.”
“What camp?” I asked, confused.
“Silly me! How could I forget? You’ve been given a special privilege to attend a Camp Summer.”
Look for the next part soon!!!
