LMD-Chapter 9A Chapter by Angie Diane♥♥
My family moved into my summer house. The only difference between my summer home and my regular house was that we had a pool. I loved going to the summer house during the summer. It was still too cold to even go swimming at the moment. Now that the regular house caught fire I knew I would have to live here until I got my own apartment. I was going to start recording my CD pretty soon. My manager told me. His bosses loved my music as well. I was glad that they did. Takumi was pretty happy too.
“Mom, Dad, I need to talk to you about something.” I said with a small frown on my face. I knew this would crush them. I didn’t want to hurt my parents, but I truly did need to move out. I needed to have my own space. I wouldn’t have time to write songs and music if I was still in the house. I knew my brother would be crushed as well. Considering he liked helping me write the songs that I have recorded.
“What is it, dear?” My father asked looking up from the newspaper. I looked down at the table. I didn’t want to say this to them looking in their eyes. It would only make me sadder to ask these questions.
“Go ahead, honey.” My mother urged me.
“I need to move out.” I said out loud. I could feel my mother’s eyes on me. I heard the coffee mug she was holding fall out of her hands. I knew that she was going to be hurt by this. I don’t like hurting my parents and I didn’t like hurting anyone. But I made up my mind. I knew I needed to do this. It was silent for a little bit. It was very awkward.
Father broke the tension. “Why would you need to move out?”
“To help my career…if I stayed here then I wouldn’t be able to get anything done. Please allow me to move into an apartment. It won’t be too far away. I would just be living across town. My record company is paying for it. I just need to be on a place in my own. Please think about this.”
I got up from the table. I knew my parents were going to have to have a discussion about this. I didn’t want to hear what they were talking about. I could hear my mother crying. I didn’t like to make her cry. I knew I needed to ask. I was eighteen, but I was still in school. I would finish school with a tutor.
I went into my room. I could feel eyes on me. My brother stepped into my room. He was in tears. “Brother, what’s wrong?”
“You really want to leave?” He asked me. He ran into my arms before he could answer. I knew he would hear what I asked mother and father. Then again they do realize that they would still see me. I don’t know what my parents have decided.
“No, I don’t want to leave more like I need to leave. I love you all too much to want to leave. Besides you will all still see me. I will just be across town.”
“I know, sis. But I would miss you even if you left.” He said to me. I knew my brother loved me. I loved him too even though we didn’t have a strong bond. I kissed his forehead. I knew he would be upset but I didn’t think he would be this upset.
“I would miss you too, but I have a career path that I want to follow. I am young, but I still was able to make it into the business. I made it just like Takumi and Red did with their fellow band mates. I finally found out their names. Their names are Lunick and Jackie.” I said with a smile. I wanted to be just as famous as them. I don’t know if I would become just as popular. My music is way different from theirs. I love singing ballads and everything. They were in the punk section. I really enjoyed listening to their music though. Black Fire has gotten their selves somewhere and I will be close behind them.
“I know you want to be a great vocalist sister. And you already are. Please just don’t forget about us when you get famous.” My brother said.
“I would never forget you besides. I would come to visit every time I had off. You aren’t the only ones that I would visit. I would go visit Hana as well. But knowing her she is going to come live in this apartment with me. It is a two bedroom apartment. Just know you are my family and I love you very much.” I gave him another kiss. After that my father and mother called me down. I went down stairs with my brother following behind me. I know he would want to hear my parent’s decision. My mother was just sitting at the table her eyes red from crying. I know she didn’t want to let me go. It is hard for a mother when their child is growing up.
“We have decided we are going to let you move into that apartment. We know you want this career. But you have to promise us that we are going to be able to see you graduate from school. We want to see that diploma in your hands. You know how we feel about your grades.” My father reminded me. I smiled at them. I knew that I was going to graduate, but I was going to be tutored. Well I was thinking of going to school to finish. I know the record company wouldn’t mind that. I know I’m going to be recording on some nights. They aren’t going to have me record everyday which is good because that will give me time to catch up on homework.
“Thank you, mother, and father. I will honor your wishes.” I said. I hugged them and my brother looked crushed. I knew they all didn’t want me to go live on my own, but I still had my own life to live. I was going to go call Takumi to tell him the good news about everything! I knew he would be excited. I was happy to have him in my life again. I would get to see him more often that I had a recording deal with his record company. I could even duet with him if I wanted. I was going to write a song that was going to fit us both. I was super excited now that I realized I could.
I hugged my brother before I went upstairs to start to write my song to duet with Takumi. I wasn’t going to be moving out for another week or so. I was glad that my parents have let me. I knew how upset they were, but they are at least helping me. I am glad. I love my parents and I know they love me.
