"Were moving." said the mother,
"We're doing WHAT?!?!" snapped the daughter.
"We're moving, dear. In the summer." the father repeated.
Alice stared at her parents with obvious shock. What do they mean by moving? Moving where? Moving why?
She liked their home, why would she want to move to another place? There was nothing wrong with where she was now, she has no business in another place.
"Why?" she finally let out after a few seconds of silence.
"Your father's got a new job, he's going to be the head chief of the Winchester police department, so we have to move." her mother said with a glimps of excitement. She was obviously excited about the move, but she was holding it in for now.
"I don't want to move! I like it here! I don't know anyone there!" Alice objected and put on her sad puppy face. The truth was that she barely even knew anyone from her own town. She was home schooled, she barely had any friends growing up and the rest of the children in her town already had their friends from school, so why would they want Alice's company? She spent most of her days at home and at her free time she helped her mother in the garden, played Quidditch with her dog or spent time with her parents doing various activities.
"I know dear, but you learn to love it and you'll find new friends!" her mother knelt down to her height and put her hands on Alice's shoulders for reassurance.
"Plus, we're going to have horses." her father added. He was a horse fanatic and wanted his daughter to learn how to ride since forever but there weren't any good stables around.
"I don't care! I don't want to move!" Alice shook off her mother's hands and made her fingers into fists by her side. She was acting like a little girl, something that was unusual for her, but she didn't want to go!
"We're moving dear, it's already arranged and it's going to happen this summer." her father now knelt as well but offered no comforting, he talked in an assertive tone.
"Well I'm staying here!" Alice whined and turned to walk out the door to her garden, fists tightly held in her hands and legs rocking the floor. She wasn't going to move with them, she was going to stay right here with her puppy and live by herself. She could cook cookies, she wasn't going to starve!
The parents of the blonde nodded their head as they watched her storm away.
She'll come by, they thought.
