Moving to a new city could be nerve wrecking for most teenagers but as for me its completely normal.

My dad has a rather special line of work where he works for a company that fixes other companies, hotels or even small businesses that are in trouble and helps them to get up and running of course they would offer either half their shares or quarter, it depends on the people and how dire the company needs help.

I wouldn necessarily say Im rich but my family are just at the break of overly comfortable living.

We drove into a neighbourhood with rather large houses. My dad says that he would like us to stay permanently here in California even if he has to move around alone.

He says that he just wants a stable lifestyle for the both my brothers and I.

My eyes widen as the houses grows larger and larger.

”Uhm dad where did you say this was again? ” I ask in confusion.

”Glendale. ” He answers in his rugged voice.

”Glendale. ” I slowly repeat after him and turn my attention back to the window.

”Okay so we already assigned rooms so no fighting. ” My stepmother says angling her body to face all five of us.

”Who said I was going to fight? ” Todd jumps the gun as always.

”No one Todd, mom said in general. ” Max folds his arms as he says in a small voice.

”But everyone knows that mom was talking about Todd. ” Tyler smirks from next to Todd already causing trouble.

”I swear I will hit you in your stupid face Tyler. ” Todd makes his hand into a fist.

”No hit me, I dare you. ” Tyler says in a snarky tone as he provokes his twin brother even further.

”Boys not now! ” Their mother shouts them as she gives both Todd and Tyler a stink eye. Then when the two become still she moves her body back to face the front.

We finally pull up in front of a big plot with a large wall and gate. My father pops his head out and slips his hand out to press numbers on the padlock. And I oddly take note.

”Home sweet home. ” My dad excitedly says as the large black gate opens before us.

We drive in and the house is absolutely insane.

”Woah this house is gigantic! ” Max exclaims from next to me.

”I know sweet right. ” My father smiles as he looks over to Emily.

”What do you think Lucy. ” My dad throws a glance at me in the rear view mirror.

”Its cool, at least I don have to share a room. ” I comment as I nudge Max next to me.

He squints, ”Im offended. ” He frowns.

We all walk through the large door and into the house and mostly Todd is commenting how big this house is from the chandelier to the stairs and the lounge.

”This is insane Dad. How are you and mom affording this? ” He asks a little too bluntly.

”We saved and I don make peanuts you know. ” Emily interjects.

”Why don you shut your stupid mouth Todd. ” Tyler frowns at him. ”You work on my damn nerves. ” Tyler says bitterly.

”Tyler! ” Emily scolds.

But he just ignores her, ”So wheres my room? ” He asks straight forward I think thats one thing that the twins have in common.

My dad smiles and takes Todd and Tyler to their room while Emily takes the rest of us.

”Okay so Todd and Tyler are sharing a room, thats why your dad is taking them to their room instead of me. ” Emily whispers as they walk in the other direction.

”Why? ” Max asks in disbelief.

”There is an extra room but theyll have to earn it. ” His mother clarifies.

”Theyll kill each other. ” Max says with a concerned look on his face.

”They are twins, they
e supposed to get along. ” Seven year old Oliver comments and his mother just smiles at him and strokes his blonde head lightly. Oliver looks a lot like Emily.

”Okay so this is your room Lucy. ” Emily points and then gives me a smile as she takes Oliver by the hand and walks off showing Max the room next to mine.

I open the door and I stare in absolute awe.

The room is absolutely stunning, with light seeping in through the skylight from up above. My things are already here because dad and Emily had the moving people set up two weeks before the time.

I let out a little laugh as I see that I have my very own balcony, I smile as I open it up. I can see backyard and my mouth is still wide open as I see that we have our own pool. And its huge!

I rest my arms on the balcony as I just enjoy the view, I look up as I subconsciously feel someones gaze on me.

My gaze looks up to find eyes staring at me, I then prop my head up and give it a little tilt as a see this person in the next house looking at me.

I can see him through his large window, standing very still in his room.

From his tidy bed and his clean wooden floor to his bookshelf and desk. My heart begins to pound in my eardrums as my eyes meets his once again,

Is he watching me?

I then only realise that this man is incredibly handsome, dark hair, glassy skin— he is just perfection but he stares at me, this continues on for a short while as if he were analysing me. I raise my hand to wave at him but then he just lets down the blinds as if I were a peeping tom.

I gasp, ”How rude. ” I say out loud with the knowledge of him not being able to hear me all the way from there.

I stomp back into my room and close my curtains.

The audacity I fold my arms as I feel very much offended.

I am quickly brought back to reality when I hear a knock on the door.

”Pumpkin. ” My dad smiles. ”So how do you like your new room. ”

I smile back at him. ”I love it. ”

”Yeah. ” He walks across the room to the large desk, ”See we got all of your art things. ” He says as hes scrolling through the desk to see if everything is there.

”Yes thanks dad. ” I say as I walk over to
