"I can't believe you're doing this to me", I shouted out to my parents before I ran upstairs and slammed the door to my bedroom as hard as possible.
I had watched so many movies where this had happened and I would laugh at the spoilt brats yelling at their parents, but this was no movie, or laughing matter, I was moving to London. This was just great. After living my whole seventeen year old life in Australia I had to move. I couldn't believe they would do this to me. I had everything I needed here; amazing friends, nice teachers and the best boyfriend possible, and now it was all being snatched away from me. My dad works with bands here in Australia and it turns out he got given a 'huge' promotion to manage some band in the UK (sun reflection, one connection, something like that anyway). So apparently it was settled, the whole family was picking up everything and moving away from the sunny streets of Brisbane to the icy, cold suburbs of London.
I decided to see what Daniel had to say about this. There was no way he would want to leave especially since moving meant that he wouldn't be able to see Aimee, his girlfriend since like grade ten. The two have been happily together for three years now. I knew that my older brother would have by back with this, not wanting to move either. I walked down the hallway and turned left into Daniel's room.
"Hey Lily, what's up?" he said as he closed his laptop and patted the bed for me to sit down. He could tell something was wrong.
"Well, I have to go to move to a country where I don't know anyone and basically create a new life for myself" I said as I felt a tear slip down my face.
"I know it will be hard leaving all your friends and Hayden but you'll fit in fine", he said in a soothing way.
Well this was unexpected I thought he would agree with me completely. I had it all planned out, we would convince your younger brother Noah to agree with us and then we would all protest like they did in the 60's to our parents and not have to move. It was simple. But apparently this wasn't how it was going to end.
"What? What about University and your friends and….and Aimee!" I asked as the tears started to stream.
"That's what I was doing before you came in, looking at possible uni choices, I can easily transfer my uni course to somewhere in London, I will keep in contact with my friends and Aimee and I will be fine" he said as he answered my questions.
I walked out of Dan's room quickly, he was no help. As I was on the way back to my room, to curl up in a ball and pretend this was not happening, I saw Noah putting clothes away. Wait, what? He was packing! So apparently I was the only one in my family who didn't want this.
It was decided for me, the Martin's were moving to London.
