The movers worked really quickly to get their stuff in the house. The whole house was covered in boxes. Sara Tancredi made her way up to her new bedroom. Most of her stuff was still packed up. She searched through the boxes until she found the one with her bed sheets and quickly made her bed. She turned to another box that had her some of her clothes. She decided what she was going to where on her first day of school and hung it on the back of her door. Sara was both excited and nervous about starting high school. Not only because she was going to a new school, but also because this would be the first time Sara would go to a real school period. Since the time she was four her mother had home schooled Sara. They had lived in a small town but when her mother got sick and was diagnosed with breast cancer, they moved to the big city of Chicago so she could be closer to her doctors.
Sara lay on her bed thinking about how different their lives were going to be now. She had so many questions about high school, what were the other student like? The teachers? What would her classes be like? As these questions ran through her mind and there was a knock at the door.
“Sara are you in there?” her mother called.
“Yeah I’m here,” Sara said as she sat up on her bed when he mother entered.
“Do you have everything ready for tomorrow?’
“I think so,” Sara said nervously.
Sara’s mom smiled and sat next to her daughter on the bed. “Don’t worry, you are going to love high school Sara. High school can be the best time of your life. You will make lots of new friends and who knows maybe a boyfriend” her mother winks at her.
“Mom” Sara blushes.
Her mom laughed, “I know you father said no dating until your married but it can be are little secret” she said putting her finger to her lips.
Sara leaned her head on her mom’s shoulder and let out a sigh. It was going to be different not spending the day with her mom. Her mom and her were so close and it will be hard for both of them to get used to it.
“Well you better get some sleep sweetie, tomorrow is a big day” her mom said as she got off the bed and headed for the door. “Goodnight sweetie.”
“Goodnight mom” Sara responded as she turned off her light. She lay back on her bed and thought about what the next day held for her.
