The Return of the Attarians
“Why are you so angry? He looked like a good person to me,” he said.
“Well just leave this topic,” I said.
“Oh, no. I completely forgot to tell you. Your mom called. She told my mom that they are going to Newyork for some reason, so you’ll be staying here with us,” he said.
“Oh no!” I said sadly, “At least she should have talked to me about it.”
“What do you mean by ‘oh no’, Sera?” he asked me while trying to read the expressions on my face, “We’ll have a lot of fun. We can play video games, we can go for skating, we can…..”
“Yeah, but….” I protested.
“We can even go to meet that guy.What was his name?” he said, “Yeah, Array.”
“I don’t wanna go out there and meet anybody,” I said. He totally knew how to annoy me.
“Ok, then we’ll go to Serena’s house,” he said and looked at me as he was expecting a reply of some kind.
Yeah, he knew that I really liked hanging out with Serena. Excitement rose inside me.
“That will be fantastic, Joe” I remarked, “..and Serena, and Maria. It will be exciting, Joe.”
“That what I wanted you to say,” he said and smiled. “I am very tired. I just want to go to bed.”
“But I think your mom is waiting for us at lunch,” I reminded him.
“I completely forgot,” he exclaimed.
We ran towards the dining room.
“Hi, you kept me waiting for a very long time,” she said while looking at him with love.
We had a very fine conversation and very nice lunch. The lunch consisted of Italian food and his mother was kind enough to bake her special cupcakes for me.
“Let’s go to see Array,” he said as soon as we entered his room.I think it’s because of the sweet cupcakes. They have acted like an energy drink on him.
“Not again,” I whispered. A whisper that was drenched in annoyance.
“What?” he asked.
“Nothing. Let’s go.” I replied.
We ran towards the backyard door. He opened the door. The backyard was replaced with a desert like place. I could see the ugly looking huts everywhere. My observation was hindered when someone suddenly touched my shoulder.
I turned to see who was that. I saw a boy of our age. He had very different features.
“Who are you?” I asked.
“I am Abbay,” he replied and shifted his gaze towards Joe. Joe was a tall fair boy. He had brown almond eyes and silky brown hair. The thing that was most prominent on his face was his big round ‘Harry Potter’ glasses.
“Hey, you look interesting,” he said while his eyes moved from me to Joe and Joe to me,”I love chickens!”
“Wait, what?” I asked pushing Joe away from him.
“It’s just that I like Americans. Especially the white and fair ones.”
“Oh, I am glad to hear that,” I said trying my best to hide that I was annoyed by this encounter. “Joe! I am not feeling well. Can you come with me for a second?”
“Hello, I am Joe,” he said completely ignoring me.
