She shut the door. She was gone. Mum was gone. Gone on holidays with yet ANOTHER new boy-friend. She had left me all alone to mind my six younger siblings all by myself.
I thought everyone else was asleep, but it turns out that Annie and Gerald were watching and looked devastated. I tried tickling them to cheer them up. Annie ran but Gerald just couldn’t stop laughing.
Mum said she would be back in a week, but it’s been a month and she still hasn’t come home. I don’t think she ever will, but I hope she will.
