Chapter 2

****

"Good morning mum" I said to my mum who's in the kitchen preparing breakfast.

"Morning, my baby" she replied. My baby she really wouldn't quit calling me that. I'm 16 for Pete's sake! Ahah na.

"Woah, you're up early" A deep masculine voice said.

Wait what??!!!!

"How long did it take you to get ready this time? An hour?" He teased.

"Bro!" I shrieked and ran towards him. He picked me up swiftly in an embrace. It's either I'm as light as feather or this dude got really strong.

"Hey cadet" he said setting me back on the ground.

"He arrived late last night. It was his idea not to tell you he was coming over" mum said.

"Or when he got here!" I said fuming and feigning annoyance.

"Calm down ma'am, you were sleeping like a baby. I didn't want to disturb you. Besides you have school today." Josh chipped in.

"So not fair!" I whined.

"You're such a baby" he teased. It's really fond of him to tease me...every time.

"Whatever soldier boy" I said rolling my eyes.

"See?" He said laughing.

"Alright you two. Missy, I know you missed your brother so much but you shouldn't miss school either" mum said winking and emphasising miss.

"Mum still hasn't given up on her word play?" Rex asked me.

"No duh" I replied, mentally facepalming.

"Hahahaha, never gets old" mum said nudging my elbow and returned to the counter.

You're getting old! I wanted to add but knew it was better not to.

"I'll drop you off at school, just like old times. What do you say?" Josh asked.

Are you kidding me? "Yesssssss" I almost screamed.

So wait o, I woke up and got dressed early and my brother was around all this time! Chai!

______________

After breakfast- toast and scrambled eggs with a cup of hot chocolate absolute yum - I hug my mum goodbye and head out with my brother.

"What? Who's car is this?"

"Mine?"

"Yours? Since when?"

"Uhm almost a year now"

Okay, any more surprises today and I'd freak out.

"Woah!"
"You like?"
"Totally dude"

It was a black Infinity Qx70. A sharp contrast to his old Toyota Hilux pickup truck. "Sleek" I add. An eye candy. Just what I need this morning. Candy!

"Buckle up"
"High high captain"
He gives me a serious look, raising an eyebrow. Haha, Oops.
"I mean, sir yes sir"
He lets out a loud laughter "At ease, soldier"
"Meanie" I grunted.

🎶I'm waking up to ash and dust
I wipe my brow and I sweat my rust
I'm breathing in the chemicals
I'm breaking in, shaping up, then checking out on the prison bus
This is it the apocalypse
Whoa oh
I'm waking up
I feel it in my bones
Enough to make my system blow
Welcome to the new age, to the new age...🎶
