. Here's the next chapter and once again sorry. Thank you by the way for being too nice and too kind
She starred at the old house that had been her home for the last 16 years. Somehow she felt sad even though that house had only caused her pain and sorrow. A small tear trickled down from her brilliant blue eyes on her cheek. It had been the house she had grown up after all even though there were few the times she had been happy. Instinctively she looked in her pocket and her hand touched a ballerina necklace. She smiled as she thought she hadn't forgotten in a hidden place from the house. It was all she had left. Her biggest possession but not because of its value in money but for its sentimental value. Slowly she brushed the jewel shape with her finger tips as she remembered the few times she had been really happy in this house. Her 10th birthday when her mother had organized a surprise birthday party for her and her friends. That day was brilliant. Too bad it ended that bad. The day when she saw her parents dancing in the living room. It was for the first time in so much time when they didn't argue.
"Aurora!" Her father yelled from the taxi. "Let's go sweetie. We'll lose our flight and your uncle is waiting for us."
"Who cares about an old idiot who refuses to grow up? I've only talked to him once or twice." Aurora said to herself as she headed towards her father. She took another look at the house then got into the car and buried her head in her father's chest as she sighed deeply. "Dad? Do you think the family who will come here will be happier than we were? I mean will they have the same problems as we had?"
Her father sighed deeply as he heard his girl talking like that. She had changed so much in the past few years. She started adopting a darker image, dark makeup, black clothes, rock music. She had found a refugee in this music. He just couldn't understand when or how she had changed that much. She was still a child. She still had the innocence of a child but she had lost the happiness and eagerness of a child. "I believe so sweetie. We only had bad luck but it will all be alright for us and for them you will see. Once we settle in you'll have lots of friends and you will have me and you uncle by your side."
She sighed at the thought. She never thought this day will came. The day when she will have to leave her home, to leave the place she had grown up. True her childhood hadn't been the most beautiful but still she would miss everything especially knowing she was going to a different place and she was going to live with a person she hardly knew. Probably it hurt most.
She sighed deeply and kissed her father's cheek. Maybe moving to her uncle's was the best thing for her father. Right now he was the most important for her and she would have done anything for him. "I love you dad!" Aurora said softly as she wrapped her arms around her father's neck. She now felt safe, she felt like no one and nothing could hurt her.
"And I love you too Aurora." It was incredible how much his little girl had grown. She was almost a young woman now but in his eyes she was the sweetest child in the world. It was such a shame her mother wasn't by her side to see how their girl has gloomed into a beautiful girl. Aurora had her mother's beautiful blue eyes, her sweet innocent smile. Sometimes looking into his daughter's eyes felt like seeing his wife right in front of him.
"I wonder how my new school will be." Aurora said almost whispering. Probably like the old school. Always being ignored, or bullied for being different. For having different opinions on life and of course for not being like the other girls who paid so much attention on looks and fashion. Guys thought she was dumb and sometimes nerd.
"I'm sure it will all be alright. You'll make very good friends and everyone will love you. Look at you! You are such a beautiful girl and have such a great personality. And I bet every guy would be crazy not to like you." He answered winking at her as Laura starred at him in shock. He always had been very protective and the thought of having a boyfriend was driving him mad.
She giggled then slowly stroked her father's cheek. "I'm sure it will all be great. I have you with me and it is the most important thing in the world." Her eyes closed as once more buried her head into her father's chest. She wondered if she will ever find someone to make her feel as protected as her father did in every moment of her life. He had always been there for her with a good word, company or comfort and her life would have been so empty without him.
Slowly she had found herself in another world. An unreal world that seemed so perfect and she felt like she really belonged there. The image that really caught Aurora's attention was her mother dancing in the middle of a ballroom on a sweet waltz. Every corner of the ballroom was filled with people dressed in elegant clothes, and everyone was admiring the woman's dance. She was so grateful so pleased with what she was doing that Aurora couldn't help but cry.
"Come Aurora! You are such a good dancer... don't be scared." Her mother said and invited her daughter to dance with her. "Come...." She said once more as Aurora headed fearfully to her mother. She looked once more around the room and saw it was all decorated with beautiful red and black roses. The golden walls were shinning from the light.
"I can't! I'm not dressed properly." Aurora answered looking at her mother with her eyes filled with tears.
"Yes you are. You are beautifully dressed. Look at you. Such a beautiful young woman dressed so beautifully. Don't you want people admire you." Her mother's voice seemed so inviting, so sweet, so endearing.
Aurora looked at her clothes and was surprised to see she was wearing a beautiful long red dress. At her neck she was wearing her ballerina necklace that she had from her mother. She smiled and headed with confidence to her mother but then, just then, she saw her mother was fading and the more she was walking towards her the more her mother's image was fading away.
Aurora suddenly woke up and saw her father paying the driver. She sighed. It was just a dream that started so beautiful and ended so bad. "Have we arrived?" She asked looking at her father.
"Yes we have!" Her father answered.
