''Mum I'm scared.'' Skye complained for the twentieth time.
''I know Skye, everyone is scared on their first day of secondary school.''
''I don't want to go.'' She cried
''For the tenth time Skye, you are going to school.'' Mum replied angrily
''Muuum please'' She pleaded.
''SKYE BLOOM, YOU ARE GOING TO SCHOOL.'' Mum yelled saying the word going so forcefully Skye got scared.
Skye ran into her bedroom slamming the door behind her. She sat on her bed and cried for what seemed like years to her. The reason Skye didn't want to go to school was because she was terrified of growing up and aging. It was a phobia called gerontophobia and Skye had it really bad.
Skye was generally afraid of a lot of things like heights, the dark, penguins, numbers and blood.
Her biggest fear was aging.
And there was nothing she could do to get rid of that fear.
