Oh, the long awaited second part to 10-year-old me’s thrilling novel… Enjoy!
GOODBYE: PART TWO
Monday 22nd April
So that’s to be my life now. I start work on Wednesday although I’ve arrived already. That last kiss with Mummy and the last hug with Daddy was almost unbearable. My parents never cry but then, they did. Their sixteen-year-old daughter, off to work. I’d never been on a train on my own before – it wasn’t scary. I was too preoccupied thinking about my new home to feel frightened.
Mr and Mrs Miles, the owners of the farm, are just like Mummy and Daddy but without the nice parts. They are strict. They are mean. Worst of all, they are loud. They don’t speak – they shout. No, they bellow. Then both have blue eyes and dress in expensive clothes that my family wouldn’t even dream of. They were the kind of clothes that have the price tag that you don’t even bother to read because you already know by the design that it is well out of your budget. Nowadays, i just hide in my corner and hope not to be noticed.
Mrs Miles is an amazing cook however I’m never allowed a fair portion. They think I should be grateful for being allowed to stay in their house. I’m the one working for them!
Hey – L again here. Just a quick thought: is it just me who’s kinda getting the vibe that 10-year-old me was already going through some kind of emotional teenage rebellion phase? Maybe I was destined to become an emo rebel… Just a thought
