Linda stood in the front room of her house. She had lived in this house all of her life. Her father stood off to the side.

"Why do you have to ruin my summer like this?" Linda angrily complained to her father.

"Sweetie I can’t help it, my job needs me to move and you know that the family has to move as well!" her father sternly replied.

It was the beginning of the summer holidays and Linda’s family had to move. She was expecting to play soccer and go to the mall with her friends. Now she could not, instead she has to move to Seattle, Washington for at least a year. She knew it was always raining there. “My hair will never stay fixed again.” She thought to herself. However, she had already found out that even if she complained for weeks, her parents were not going to change their minds about moving. She knew she would have to move.

For the last time in this house, she crawled into bed. She closed her eyes, her mind filled up with old memories of her friends, her family, childhood and her house that was sold about two months ago. Now that a new family was moving in tomorrow and it was no dream. It was reality.

Waking the next morning, she realized that complaining would not help she would still have to move. Therefore, she decided to take a more position approach.

“Good morning dad, I think I’m already to go.” She said to her father as she carried her suitcase out to the family van.
