Starting a new life
I'm meeting my cousin for the first time in my life. I have never, ever met her in my 16 years 9 months and 18 days. I'm training to be a spy. See my cousin Cammie goes to a spy school for girls because when the first Gallagher girl ever wanted to be a spy (only guys were spies) she opened up her home (a mansion) the Gallagher Academy. For girls that wanted to be a spy. She is the fonder of girl spies and of the school. So my aunt Morgan is the headmistress. Her husband died when he was on a mission, so I never knew him and I knew better then to bring him up with my family. I don't know if Cammie knows about me but I did my research on her and her friends so I know a lot about them.
The school is in Roseville, Virginia. Exactly an 8 hour flight from where I live. I live all the way in California. The town there doesn't know about the school. I mean they know that it's a school but not a spy school, all they know is that is a school for rich snooty girls that are spoiled brats but really it's not. When ever they see a girl from that school they give them a Gallagher glare. No one knows where the name came from but that is what we call it.
Here is a little about me my mother is a spy she works for CIA. I mostly live with my father he is a retired spy. My mom comes home when she is off from work or not on a mission. I miss my mother a lot when I was younger she would take me every where and we always had fun but now since I'm older she has to work more and she doesn't come home much, but I have a really good relationship with my farther. He has worked so many places and I never get bored. I have also done home school almost my whole life and I have been taught some spy things. I have decoded everything that my mom has ever given to me. My dad has also taught me to become a spy. One time for Christmas I followed him to figure out what he got my mother.
I was almost done packing when my dad called up the stairs, "Amy your mom is on the phone and she wants to talk with you."
"Okay Dad." I yell back to him. I went out into the hallway and picked up the phone, "Hey Mom."
"Hey kiddo, almost done packing?"
"Yes, all I have left is a couple shirts, a skirt, a sweater, shoes, and knee high socks, and oh a pair of tights."
"That's good," and then everything got really quit. You know when everything goes awkward and you don't know what to do.
"Amy, I'm sorry that I can't be there to see you off."
"No worries mom, it's fine, I don't really care." That didn't come out right.
"I mean that its okay that you can't see me off not all parents can do that and there is always after break."
"Oh, okay." She sounded a little sad and I felt bad. "I better let you go finish packing, love you sweetie."
"Love you mo-"
The phone suddenly made a click and she was gone. My mother would never hang up on me, I think. I mean unless she had to go somewhere really quick? I hanged up the phone and went back to my room to finish packing. Soon after I closed my suit case and zipped it, my dad then walked into my room.
"Already to go?"
"Yep, I think so." I say and I grabbed my suit case and stuck it my other three by the door.
"Okay, let me grab your suit cases." He says.
"Okay, I can grab my shoulder bag and my hand bags." I tell him as he grabs my suit cases. I walked in front of him as we went downstairs. He was really loud, I mean he was really loud; he was a loud noisy big brother (that I don't have).
BANG, THUMP, SMACK! My suit cases went. Man he needs to learn how to be more quit. How in the world he could ever be a spy with making all that noise, I wonder how he could do it.
"Dad are you okay?" I said as we got to the bottom of the stairs.
"Yeah, I'm fine." He answered back.
"Okay." I say as I reach for the car keys and the front door. Before I turned the door knob he drops all of my bags, I turned around to look at him and he says, "Opp's, sorry sweetie."
I turn the front door knob and went to go unlock the car and opened the trunk. I put in my hand bags and turned a round and there he was with two of my suit cases, how he got the still puzzles me.
"Amy, there are two more suit cases at the door, how about you get into the car and I will grab them and we will be on our way."
"Sure Dad." I went and got in the passenger seat. I turned on the car and got buckled; I heard the trunk get shut and in less than a minute (exactly 32 seconds when you're a Gallagher Girl, you need to know) my dad got into the car and we were off. As we drove away from my beloved home I looked out the window, I was going to miss this place even if I going to come back home for Christmas. Later, when we were driving on the highway, it was really quite. To quite for me.
` I had to start a conversation.
"So Dad…" I turned towards him.
"I was wondering what are you going to do with Mom away and I'm at school?"
"Well I'm going back to work."
"As a spy?"
"Oh, then what are you doing?"
"Well its complicated I am helping an old friend of mine and I don't know exactly what I'm doing other than helping him."
After that it got really quite again.
"You will be home for the holiday's wont you?" I ask.
"Maybe it all depends on the future, okay.", he says while turning to me.
"I guess so." I say back to him and he turned back to the road.
"Goody." I say under my breath so he can't hear me. I was getting upset because my mom is a spy and I don't like EVER get to see her, and now my dad is helping someone and doesn't know if he will be home for Christmas.
"Honey I know that this is going to be hard for you."
"Not like it already is." I say under my breath.
"But its for the best, your Mom has a good job and you are going to a good school and you are will be spending sometime with your cousin, and I'm helping a friend in need. Also remember that I said that I might make it home for Christmas, unless my friend needs more help. You understand right?" he asks.
"Yeah, its fine Dad at least you and Mom are happy." I tell him. For the rest of the car ride was quite.
