It was about 7 am when I woke up. Oh, this is going to be a long day. Because lately, all of my days were exactly the same.
I was depressed. It's been like this for a while, since I broke up with my boyfriend. And now, when I was alone, I was lost. I had forgotten how it was to be completely on my own. I had gotten used to him being around. I didn't know how to start over, or where to begin. I wasn't even sure I was prepared to be alone again, but I had to. I was confused and needed some time to think things through.
I dragged myself out of bed and turned on my PC. I went to my e-mail to check it. Usually, there was nothing new, just some offers and notifications. But, this time, there was an e-mail from my cousin Melanie. Melanie invited me to come to visit her in England. I couldn't believe it! I was so happy, I almost started to jump around my room.
Melanie usually lives in Ireland, but she has a house in England too and now she needs my help with the show she's planning to do in a month or so. She is a producer, director, actor and a singer. And those are the things I'm interested in, too. I guess it runs in the family. I was thrilled I would finally have a job that I'm interested in. I smiled at my thoughts. Melanie said I could bring Alexandra and Zoya too, if they are free. Alexandra is my younger sister, and Zoya is my best friend, since forever. Well, at least it seemed like I knew her forever.
Melanie said that she'll need me to stay for a few months with her, if I can stay that long. I said that for me is no problem, but I'll get back to her soon, after I talk to Alex and Zoya. I called Alex and told her I talked to Melanie, and that she invited us to England. Alex said she wouldn't be going, because she already promised mom and dad she'll go with them on a cruise. I had also been invited on a cruise but I didn't want to go.
When I called Zoya, it was 10 am, she answered sleepily and I told her the news. She screamed happily in the phone so loudly I had to move the phone away from my ear.
I smiled and said: "Are you done screaming?".
She blew a deep breath and said calmly: "Yes. Continue.".
Then I said: "Well, Melanie said we'll be staying for a few months with her, if we can. Since we're unemployed and all. She told me to ask you and Alex if you'd want to...".
She stopped me from talking and said: "Of course I want to go! When are we going? Is Alex going?", she said breathlessly.
I said: "We have to get our documents ready first, and book a flight. I'd say, in about a month. Alex isn't going, she's going away with mom and dad on a cruise. I'm going to let Melanie know we'll come to England. Talk to you later.".
I messaged Melanie: "Zoya said 'Ok', but Alex can't go. We'll come next month. Talk over Facebook. Wait for you there."
Melanie met me on Facebook a few minutes later. We talked about what documents Zoya and I are going to need for the trip. Melanie had to go soon, so we finished our chat quickly.
Later that day I met Zoya. Zoya is a very pretty girl, and everyone was saying she should be a supermodel. She has a blond hair, just over her shoulders, beautiful brown eyes and is white as Snow White. I adored her like she was my sister.
