Gaby: BOOK 2 Summer Girl*Part 2*In The Summertime

"Get up Drew!"

I prised my eyes open when I heard Dads voice, ugh Monday morning, school!

"Coming" I drawled to put him off.

I dragged myself up, did my ablutions and descended to the kitchen for a hurried breakfast.

"Get a move on Drew, do you want a lift?"

"Please"

"Come on then, I'm running late this morning too"

I wasn't awake enough to come back with a witty rejoinder, I guess Saturdays journey has caught up!

Gaby: BOOK 2 Summer Girl- Part 1-A Gaby Summer

I awoke to the sounds of a summer Sunday morning. I couldn't place where I was immediately but then I realised that I was in my room at Bond acres. Seven thirty - time for a training ride before meeting the guys. I dressed quickly and managed to leave the house without waking Jules and Dad, I think.

I decided to head out to Retford, I needed to loosen up after yesterdays train journey. I was riding on sort of autopilot and going over last week's holiday with mum. This 'training' ride was a bit different to last week with Mum and Maria and the rest of the team! That day was awesome! Then there was Thursday with Kat and Freddii at the pool, that was just so much fun.

BOOK 2 Summer Girl
Following
on from 'The Anime Days', Summer Girl follows the adventures of Drew
Bond, schoolboy,sportsman and reluctant girl! It doesn't seem to matter
what he does, his alter ego is lurking just around the corner, so it's
no surprise to find that it's Gaby who has the adventures and not Drew.

But the summer hols will be differen

Gaby: The Anime Days- Part 40-Back Home

Even Jules was late getting up on Monday morning!

We met dad in the breakfast room at quarter to nine, I had managed to
dress more like a boy today, well at least the clothes were mine!

"Come on you two, your mum will be here soon"

"How's she getting here? " Jules asked

"She's got the car remember" I offered

"Oh yeah" she allowed

"We'd better get something to eat then" I nudged Jules

Gaby: The Anime Days-Part 39-Jenny's Day



I was woken next morning by the sound of Jules showering
and suddenly my world popped back into focus. The shower cut off and
shortly my sister emerged wrapped in a towel and humming an Eminem
track.

"Oh you're awake then"

"What's the time" I yawned

"Seven thirty, mum'll be back in an hour to pick us up"

"Where's she gone?"

"Back to her flat to pick up her kit. You better get a shower, we have to get breakfast before mum gets back"

Gaby: The Anime Days-Part 38-Euro Drew

I awoke to the incessant drone of my clock alarm.

"Come on Drew, up and at 'em!" Dad shouted into my room

"Jules you up yet?" I heard him go on

I jumped out of bed and got dressed ready for the
trip. When I got downstairs dad already had the car packed and even
Jules was ready. We ate a quick breakfast and by seven thirty we were
ready to depart. It was early enough that our drive down to Nottingham
was uneventful and it was only a little after eight when we were parked
at the station.

The wait for our train seemed interminable but it was
on time and just before eight thirty we were on our way to London. You
really don't want me to recount the journey in full suffice to say that
we pulled into St Pancras only a couple of minutes late. Dad hustled us
to the taxi rank and we were soon in a black cab to cross the capital
to Waterloo. Our train was due to leave at 11.35 so we enjoyed the ride
past Oxford Street and Trafalgar Square and we were soon at check-in,
Waterloo International.

Gaby:The Anime Days-Part 37-End of Term

Well the barby was great; Mr Lacey actually managed to
produce eatable food without choking us all in the process! Baked
potatoes, sausages, not just your standard ones either we had a
selection including tomato, Lincoln and turkey with ginger, home made
burgers, well it was a veritable feast! We all made pigs of ourselves,
forcing down strawberry Viennetta(r) ice cream to finish off.

Between eating a game of Twister was in
progress and we were having a whale of a time in the evening sunshine.
The evening just disappeared and the light was starting to fade when
Mrs Lacey called.

Gaby:The Anime Days-Part 36-Lincoln


It was still only two thirty and I was still floating on
air after the race. I now knew why my new enemy was so upset, not only
was he beaten by a squirt like me but the prize list was impressive
today too! Besides a small cup, I received fifty pounds in cash and
most valuable, a new frame! Way cool!

Dad agreed to let the girls and I go round the shops for a while whilst he slinked off to the second hand bookshops.

"Five o'clock at the front of the cathedral"

"Yes dad"

Gaby:The Anime Days-Part 35- Cheer Again


I awoke after a restless night just as confused as
before, on one level the whole idea of Gaby petrifies me. I mean I'm a
boy, why do so many people think I'm a girl even when I haven't been
conned into dressing as one? That alone is scary, but what is more
scary is that when I'm dressed up I sort of quite enjoy it! That is
really starting to spook me out.

On another plane Gaby seems to get involved in some
fun situations, I mean take this party of Pinkies. There is just no way
that me, that's Drew, would be invited but cute little Gaby gets an
invite to spend the night with the girls. It's not as though it's the
first time either, remember my 'makeover'? Sheesh. What's worse is that
I'm even considering going! I really have got to get a grip.

"Brrrrr. Brrrrr. Brrrrr."

"Uh!"

"Brrrrr. Brrrrr. Brrrrr."

I grabbed what I now recognised as my phone from the bedstand and clicked it on.

"Hello?"

"Oh you are there"

"What?"

The voice was familiar but I couldn't place it.
