“Welcome home, love” I smiled at my sister who smiled at me. She just entered the house after a long day at work, they had traveled to Scotland yesterday and just came back here.
I wrapped my arms around her neck hugging her tightly and she wrapped hers around my waist hugging me back. I had come home from university and prepared dinner for the two of us knowing that she would come home straight after work, and that she’d be hungry. I was glad that she traveled with a proper budget, working at the Brooks’ mansion had paid off at least. I was able to send mum a proper amount that would help her buy herself a few things rather than just live a basic day. I wanted her to spoil herself.
“Thank you” Grace smiled pulling away to look me in the eye “how are you? How was your exam?”
“I’m fine, it went well. Do you want to go shower, freshen up while I prepare our dinner?” I asked and Grace nodded smiling. I knew how tired she was, I could tell just by her expression that things were hectic on her. She walked to her bedroom while I headed to the kitchen to find my phone ringing, checking the caller ID, I couldn’t help but smile when I saw that Thomas was the caller. Having called him earlier, but he didn’t answer, therefore I knew that he’d be calling me a while after that.
“Hello, love” he said as soon as I answered the phone.
