“Hey mum, can I go shopping tomorrow with Vanessa?”
“No, sorry you have enough clothes and I am not giving you anymore money.”
“Mum! Why can’t I go?”
“Because I said so. Now Izzy, can you please drop this?
“Mum! I am going to have nothing to do tomorrow! Plus, I haven’t seen Vanessa and ages! Please?”
I didn’t understand why I couldn’t go. I am doing absolutely nothing tomorrow! And my room is absolutely spotless.
“Izzy, I said no! Now go upstairs please.”
“Ugh, fine!” I walked upstairs very slowly. Slow enough to over hear that I was going to have to babysit my little brother tomorrow. Great!
