“Can I go to Novia’s?” I asked.
“Sure, just be back for lunch at noon,” Eileen replied.
“Ok, see ya,” and with that I ran out the door.
As soon as I was out of sight I slowed down my pace. Novia would probably still be sleeping anyway. I was so stressed. I couldn’t handle the fact that I might need to leave this place were I felt secure and happy. The past few days I’d been being rude to everyone. What was wrong with me?
“NOVIEEEE,” Jake yelled.
“UGH! Jake I’m trying to sleep. Just because you like to run ten miles before the sun comes up doesn’t mean I have to wake up that early!” I moaned.
“Someone is here to see you. Guess whoo?”
“I can come back, uh, sorry.” Aisha started.
“She’ll be awake soon enough, probably by June.” Jake said jokingly.
I groaned again for good measure and made my way down the stairs.
Twenty minutes later after a big breakfast of pancakes and orange juice I was wide awake.
Aisha and I climbed the stairs to my room for a talk.
“Explain your plan, now,” Aisha pleaded.
Now came the hard part. Operation Alamo wasn’t risky or exciting and I didn’t think Aisha would like it. It was our only option. “Ash, you may not like this but my idea is to talk to them and explain our ideas, concerns, and issues.”
She paused, “Talk to them?? Do you really think that would work. Novia! I trusted you to have a good plan. We have my whole life riding on this. I can’t let an opportunity slip away. Adults don’t listen! My dad never listened, anyway,” and then she angrily stormed out.
Duh-dun-duh!! I can’t believe this series is almost over. It went by so quickly. What a super long title for a pretty short post 😉 I know this part of the finale is short, but it would have been super long as one part AND I can’t give the ending away, now can I?
See ya soon:D
