Chapter Three- Big News
The months passed and school was as much torture as usual. However, things were
home. Mom was becoming a bit more stressed than usual, and for some reason, she quit

After school, Jude got a ride with me to the diner.
A minute late, Gigi wouldn't squeal on us.
"Hello Trent..." I recognized that voice. It was my boss Mr. Rodriquez. "Here..." He
said handing me an envelope.
"Sir, it isn't pay day."
"I know Trent, this is your final paycheck"
"F-final paycheck!?!?" I stuttered trying to get the words out "but sir... I-I"
"I'm sorry to hear that your moving."
"Moving? I'm not moving"
"Your parents called in last week. Said you were moving this Thursday to Illinois."
"what..." I whispered to myself.
"You were one of my best employees Trent."
Gigi began sobbing hysterically and ran to give me a hug.
"goodbye shug." she said.
Trying not to make a scene I began to cry, and ran out of the diner.
When I pulled into the driveway, I cut the engine and stayed in the car for about
fifteen minutes before I decided to get
out. It was raining, the weather seemed to feel the way I felt.
I ran into the house and to my room.
I wasn't dreaming. My room was in boxes, my heart in pieces.
This was my home, my entire life, and it was being taken away from me.
