That night when I was getting ready for bed, a thought came into my mind. What if I get to know this Edward, and I realise I’ve met him before. It’s a possibility; I mean Folks isn’t that big. I didn’t really mix with the kids of Folks when I was there, and I wasn’t there for that long each year, but still, it was possible. I do remember some kids, a couple of girls and a boy! Edward’s a boy, what if that boy was Edward. I don’t really know why, but this thought made me nervous. Oh, well I’ll jump that hurdle if it comes, I guess.
I could hear my mother walking up the stairs, I swiftly jumped into bed. I heard the door creak open, and some light flickered on my face. I kept my eyes shut.
“Night, Bells” my mother called though the crack.
“Night” I replied keeping my eyes shut tightly.
I was really tired, but for some reason I just couldn’t find sleep. I rolled around for what felt like hours, many thoughts flooded my mind. I tried really hard to think of the little boy I used to play with, all I needed was his name. Stop it; I told myself, stop thinking and just sleep. I relaxed and finally feel deep into sleep.
“Mourning, Bells” my mum Renee कहा smiling.
“Mourning, mum” I replied wiping my eyes.
“Eggs!” I smiled, mum’s favourite, she made them all too often.
“Surprise!” She laughed scooping some scrabbled, yellow substance onto my plate.
“So, what did आप dream about last night?” Mum asked, ever so casually.
Oh no, I was a bad sleep talker, very bad. I’d even been known to scream in my sleep without waking myself up.
“Umm, I don’t remember, what did I say?” I asked with caution.
“Oh, something about needing to know his name?” She asked like a question.
“Nah, I have no idea” I was a terrible liar. But hopefully my ‘lying face’ was close enough to my ‘I really have no clue face’, hopefully.
“oh, ok” mum replied. Hmm, that was easier than I thought.
“Oh no, is that the time?” I coughed, scoffing my eggs and sculling my juice.
“Bye Bella, have a good day!” Mum yelled, as I ran out the door.
“Bye!” I screamed back, running to my car.
