We’re rushing to catch a train we’ve already missed! I breathe heavy, somewhere a ring tone sings. The next two trains are heavily delayed. We rush to the next platform, the previous train arrives on another.
Finally, we arrive at my parents’. We walk to their home, everywhere autumn is showing off bright warm or ashy colours. Even my mum’s cake reminds me of autumn, with creamy layers and light brown biscuits. Dad is telling inappropriate jokes and my friend is laughing.
I’m wearing my new red sweater because I believe in wearing your new clothes. My mum doesn’t like that’s it’s a cropped top. We’re having drinks and then wander to their back yard to see their wall full of retro plates. Coca Cola ones, sight seeings, and Marilyn Monroe. We also look at the flowers – not so bright and happy at this time of year. It’s cold so we get back to the house. Before we disappear inside, we see pinup girls smiling for various ads.
