“Heidi come downstairs I need to talk to both you and Jennifer.” Amy would never say that me and Jenni were sisters in front of Jenni because she knew how much my sister hated me. “Wow ‘mother’ what’s got into you today? You never want to talk to me and my sister in private especially together.”
“Stop with the sarcasm Heidi and just come down stairs; I don’t have the energy to argue with you.” Although I hated my mum I actually felt a bit sorry for her. She said that sentence in a very run down way, like she was ill or something. “Right i’m coming…”
“Heidi don’t go ballistic ok…” Ballistic…How could my mum actually be saying these words. We hardly ever talk! So how the hell can my mother say that I go ballistic?! “Ok.” I decided to go along with whatever Amy was saying, after all she sounded really sick.
“Right…We have been invited to live over in California.”
“California! What kind of invitation is that? An invitation is, for example an invite to a birthday party or a Halloween party, not an invitation to live over in a different country!” Even though I could have slaughtered my mum for what she just told us I was kind of happy (in a way), a part of me was actually considering this idea because well let’s face it, my life is an absolute mess at the minute, and it wasn’t hard to guess that it always would be.
“Well darling i’ll let you think on things ok sweetie.” WHAT? SHE JUST CALLED ME DARLING?! SHE HAS NEVER CALLED ME DARLING IN HER WHOLE LIFE!! SO WHY THE HELL DID SHE JUST DECIDE TO CALL ME IT NOW?! AND WITH A SMILE ON HER FACE ASWELL-
“So, have you decided yet sweetie or do you need all night to think on things? Well whatever you decide just let me know ok hun.” I was too surprised to speak; my mouth opened but nothing came out and for once in my life I was gob smacked at her but in a happy way. I could see her greeny blue eyes looking at me waiting hopefully for an answer but I didn’t give her the answer that she was looking for, I just smiled and walked up to my bedroom looking at Amy all the way until I got to the top of the stairs, then I just ran into my bedroom and locked the door (tightly shut.)
“Right let’s go over things” I quietly said to myself hoping that nobody was listening. “What’s going on?! Has my mum gone deranged?! I mean for starters, she has never called me darling since dad left and for another, why is she being so nice to me?”
“Heidi? Are you in your bedroom?”
“Right sweetie, I just want to apologise for the past seven years, I mean I haven’t exactly been the best mum in the world.” I couldn’t even catch my breath to say anything back; Amy was actually saying these words…
“Urgh the morning of the next day.” For some unknown reason I felt as if I had been given a reason to feel happy but no today was a exactly the same as all the other days. “When Amy wakes up it will probably be one of her sick jokes that she played on me yesterday, and I fell for it!” “Stupid rabbit…You should know by now to follow your heart of hearts.” I mean I felt it yesterday, I felt that it was all just a prank but I really wanted it to be true! “Darling” Oh god,
Please don’t be like that, I really want to make amends with you sweetie So please if there’s anyway that you can find it in your self to believe me then please do.” Her expression looked genuine but there was just something or is it, something else… “Mom…” I figured I might as well make her happy by calling her this so that I wont seem like that much of a bitch when I tell her to get out of my room. “You’re in my room!”
“Oh yes I’m sorry sweetie I’ll go.” Wow she didn’t cause a scene...
“Mom are you o-k?” I felt a it cheeky asking this after all, I should be happy that Amy was being nice to me but I just wasn’t…
