I knew it was going to be an unusual day when my mom came into my bedroom and said you are going to spend your weekend at your aunt Suzie's house and you will be going to a very cool place you'd like. I Never liked going to Aunt Suzie's house because her kids, especially Charlie, he would always scare me in the night with his horrifying ghost stories. Even though I am 12, his stories still got to me and freaked me out. I tried to persuade mum but she didn't change her mind. It was 3:55 and mum was going to drop me off at 5:20 so I knew I had a lot of time to come up with the best mind changing reason to not go to aunt Suzie's house. First, I called my uncle Sione if I could sleep over his, but he was on night shift throughout the whole weekend. Second, I called my best friend Garry if I could stay over his house, but his house was full of relatives from out of town. The third time I thought of the best idea ever, My nana. Since Grandpa died, she stayed by herself. I was so happy because I always loved to going to nana's house because her chocolate brownies were the BEST. This time I whispered before I called nana " Third times the charm". I called nana and I said in a sad little voice " Hi nana how are you?" and nana said "Hi Stanley I'm good, What are you after I know that voice, cheeky" and I said " Would it be okay if I stayed over for the weekend", and she said " Sure absolutely". After talking with Nana, she said she would call my mum about this. I was very happy I wouldn't be staying at Aunt Suzie's house, Phew. It had come to the time to leave home for the weekend and go to nana's house. When we got in the car I reminded mum to call Aunt Suzie that I wouldn't be coming and then mum said: " Don't Worry". When we got to nana's house I saw another car similar to aunt Suzie's. Mum dropped me off and she couldn't get down to say hi because she had to go straight back home and pack. As soon as I walked in the door I saw Aunt Suzie. I said what are you doing here? and she said we were gonna come with you as soon as your mum dropped you off at our house but she didn't. I was kind of happy because I didn't see Charlie or any of his siblings. I walked into the kitchen happy until I saw CHARLIE........"NOOOOOOOO"
