On the 4783rd day of his life, Angus made what some would call a life-changing decision. Angus decided (after several minutes of thinking) to run away. He liked to put it in a nice way, like saying he was running to somewhere not from somewhere. As matter of fact, he was. There was nothing horribly wrong with how he currently lived, he just wanted a change; perhaps for the better.

Angus figured, that since he didn't really fit in with his family, him running away wouldn't be a big deal. Besides, Mrs. Kingsley didn't like him much anyway. He also figured that it was possible to run away to somewhere and stay there; for he had done some research.

From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler was the book that inspired Angus to go on his daredevil 'expedition'. So, according to the book, he needed a place to run to.

After spending a few hours at the bookshop and on the internet, Angus decided where to go.

Angus was going to Oxford.

It was a clever plan. To get there, Angus just had to get on the bus. The bus fare would be somewhere between 20 and 25. That was less than 1/13 of his total 'income'. Being the paper-boy wasn't so bad after-all (haha... paper- get it?). It really paid off seeing his pocket money was a third of his brother's and sister's (Mrs. Kingsleyclaimed it was because he was 'younger'... Angus had other views).

It was quite simple. Angus found cheap lodging in a dodgy motel not far from Oxford college. He planned on going to the library as 'A keen Learner' and spending most of the day there. Not hard. Then, when he got bored of the Oxford library (which he strongly doubted), Angus would take the bus to London.

There, he'd explore the wonders of city-life (he'd be about 14-ish), then, finally, when he really got bored of it all, Angus would return back to what he was supposed to call home.

Simple.

AUTHOR'S NOTE:

Haha, yes, I will leave Author's Notes like in ODWSFMH (One Day When a Suitcase Fell on my Head)! If you were wondering what From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler was, it's a book. Here: check out the link:

Yes, I tried my hardest not to copy FMUFMBEF. Is it working?
