I couldn't believe how relieved I was when school finished. My afternoon hadn't been bad exactly, just mind-numbingly dull. I hadn't been interested in anything my teachers had been saying so the afternoon passed like a snail, impossibly slowly.
I was the first person out of the classroom when the bell went for the end of the day and was walking hand in hand with Sean before I knew it.
'Can we pop by mine first?' I said. 'I have a few things I need to pick up.'
Sean nodded in agreement, leading me towards the car. I waved at Morgan as she disappeared the other way, yelling at her that I would see her later. Sean was a gentleman, as per usual, and held my car door open for me, letting me slide into the passenger seat gracefully.
A few moments later we were out of the school car park and onto the main road. Freedom at last.
It only took a minute or two to get to my house from school and Sean smoothly pulled up right outside.
'Do you want me to come in with you?' He asked. 'Or should I wait here?'
'You can wait here. I'll only be a few moments, I have to grab my pyjamas and stuff and leave Mum a note.' I gave him a peck on the cheek before opening my door and running towards my house.
Mum wasn't in when I opened the door. I hadn't expected her to be. She had her yoga class that afternoon and usually wasn't back until six. I hurriedly scribbled a note to tell Mum where I was, which I left on the fridge, then grabbed a few necessaries from upstairs and ran out of the house again.
'OK then,' I sighed as I sat back down in the passenger seat. 'Let's go.'
