From My Despair-3

Then I saw my brother enter in looking good in his scruffily jeans, sneakers, red sweat shirt with a Star Fleet Engineering logo and his Letterman Jacket.

"BRO!" I yelled as he caught me in a bear hug.

"You've what!" Dad bellowed

"Left it at the Peters" I mumbled

Dad shook his head in disbelief.


"Uh huh" Mum's voice came from the bathroom

"You'll never guess what your son has done?"

"What?" she asked arriving at my door, "Drew what are you wearing?"

I sat, head bowed, on my bed wearing Jules babydoll.

"Sorry" I snivelled

"Dave, go and get the coffee on" Mum ordered Dad

Dad shook his head again as he left Mum and I alone.

"Now then Drew, an explanation please?" Mum requested

"It's all your fault!" I accused

"What is all my fault?" Mum kept her cool under my outburst.

"You okay Drew?" Mum asked when I arrived in the kitchen

"Bad dream" I told her

"Well get your breakfast, Phil Eaton will be here about ten" she informed me

"The 'Cycling' guy?"

"You met him Monday" she stated

"Er perhaps I ought to play dumb Mum? I was wearing a bra when he saw us"

"Hmm, you're probably right. Are you going to come with us?"

"Where?" I mumbled round my Weetabix.

"Phil wants to go on a ride with me, you've seen the sort of thing they do" she advised

"I was going to see the guys later"

"You could go afterwards, we'll only be out about three hours including the café"

"Where are we going?"

The drive across to Gran's was a bit slower than usual, being the summer hol's there was a fair bit of grockle* traffic meandering about the Peak District. We eventually arrived at Gran's house at nearly eleven, full twenty minutes later than expected.

"Hello kids" Gran greeted us

"Hi Gran" Jules and I echoed



Gran and Mum had a longer than usual hug before we all made our way into the house.

Double Dare - complete

Steve is a bit of a loner and a prime target for other people's jokes because one thing everyone knows about him is that he can't ignore a dare. A couple of his not exactly friends have a challenge for him which smells a bit off, but what they don't know is that in trying to trick him into a humiliating situation, they're offering him the thing he's dreamed of for so long, and the beginnings of a journey of discovery.

I was still eating breakfast when Mum and Jules left for the day, they were off to Leeds and I'm off to the Peters'! I decided to walk over to Maddy's and I thought I'd box clever, I usually ended up having to 'borrow' underwear for these dressing up sessions, but today I was already wearing 'Gaby' knickers. Well its embarrassing borrowing underwear!

"Hi Drew" Mrs Peters greeted me a short while later.

"Hi Mrs P, I've come for a costume fitting" I pointlessly told her

"That daughter of mine was at it all day yesterday, I can't wait to see what she comes up with" she informed me

"Is that you Drew?" Maddy called from the dining room

"Morning Mad" I greeted her

"I'll leave you two to it then" Mrs P advised

When I got home, the house was in turmoil. Dad was hoovering like crazy and Jules was busy dusting.

"You're back then" Jules stated flatly

"Yeah, what's going on?"

"Mum's back tomorrow?" she told me

"I know"

"The place is a mess so we're cleaning"

Now don't get me wrong here, our house is not exactly a palace, nor is it a pig sty - and Mum is hardly the house-proud type either! In fact since she's been in Germany the place has been tidier than usual, we've had a cleaning rota and apart from a bit of surface mess, magazines and stuff, it's looking pretty good.

"Drew?" Dad stopped the vacuum

"Yes Dad"

"Can you have a go 'round the kitchen"

"I spose" I replied unenthusiastically

It was just gone nine when my brain registered consciousness. First day of the holidays! Mum's home!

"Okay Carol, I'll see you in an hour, bye" Mum was just finishing her call when I surged into the kitchen.

"Morning Mum, why didn't you wake me?"

"Morning Drew, I thought I'd let you sleep in, what are you doing today?"

"Hadn't given it much thought"

"Well I'm going to see Carol, Maddy's mum this morning, how about we go for a ride this afternoon?"

"Yeah that'll be excellent!" the cog's whirred, "can I come to the Peters with you, I need to talk to Maddy."

"I don't see why not, Carol and I are going into Mansfield, on our own, so don't even ask"

"Where's Jules?" I asked
