……………….. I sat looking at the clock on the wall, why is it time always goes so slowly when you have things to look forward to, and why is it when it’s a perfect early summer afternoon we get stuck inside with the worst substitute teacher ever her voice I think has sent most of the class to sleep. A ball of paper landed in front of me on my desk I stopped taping my pen against my leg and looked up to see Ben grinning at me,his dark brown eyes twinkling, I opened thenote to read the message.
I took the pen from my mouth and started to write a reply.
I balled up the piece of paper throwing it back at him as the teacher droned on, I leaned back in my seat and looked out of the window, watching the white puffy clouds floating slowly by, I sighed and opened the front of my planner to cross of another day on the countdown I had marked in the front of the book. I was now down to 3 days, not bad considering it started at 100. I smiled to myself 3 more days till Dad gets back from deployment. The bell rang I got up from the seat before the teacher had said anything and was out the door heading for my locker, I waved when I saw Skye waiting for me her cleats hanging round her neck.
“God when is he going to come to his senses about her” Skye moaned as we walked in the locker room.
“He’s not that old” I smiled “And we need to stop this conversation it’s just icky” I shuddered.
Skye did have a point Dad was still a good looking guys at 6ft 1 his body was still in better shape than most guys half his age he still had a six pack and big arms which I used to love been cuddled in when I was little. I shook my head snapping back to reality I looked round the field Mom waved at me from the bleachers where she was sitting with Aunt Dannie I waved back. She could still pass for a college kid and after having me and then my twin brothers she could still rock a bikini making heads turn on the beach, but she is one tough cookie even Dad knew when to back away from her I think it’s true what they say the toughest job in the Marine Corps is being a wife and mother holding it together while the guys are deployed, I think the thing that made our family so strong was the fact she never let us forget that even though Dad was away he still loved us we all get extra hugs and kisses that she says he left behind for us, even Ollie and Nick might complain and say they are too old for stuff like that at 15 but if you ask them they’ll tellyou that Dad loves them without hesitation.
“I know” I smiled he was as excited as I was,
We ran out on to the field, it felt so good to be outside running off some energy, I managed to score just before the Referee blew for ½ time we walked off the field happy and headed for the bench.
“He’s my godfather” we ran back out onto the field I saw Adam throwing a football for my brothers and Coles 2 brothers Max and Dylan, Skye played off her anger scoring twice we ended the game at 0-3 we went over to the opposition and shook hands with them before we left the field.
after much debate this is what we've all decide on is BEN
