My Indoor Holiday
Written by Rejoice
Finally we’ve reached our destination.
It took almost an hour!
Riding in this damn coldy car.
Don’t she even notice I don’t like much cold?
Arghhh! how could dad tell me to be here?
such a small house!
Wait, my aunt ain’t even that rich the way I
Living here for a week is sure gonna be hell for
“Ah finally Isa, we are home.” Aunt Kiki said,
smiling and undoing her seatbelt.
I said nothing and undid my seatbelt as well.
“Get down dear,let’s get your bag.” she said
and I rolled my eyes.
I did’t come here with my whole bedroom.
“I could get them myself.” I said and coming
down from the car, I walked to the boot, opened
it and grabbed my two boxes.
I dragged them along. She came to take one,
“It’s fine Aunt Kiki.” I said and she only gave
me a smile and we walked towards the front
Seriously, I don’t like that im here.
Im gonna miss Katy and Ariana and a whole
seven days without them is gonna be like a
seven years without them.
Im really going to miss them so much.
What about Davis?
Ugh… I don’t even like him. Im only gonna
miss Katy and Ariana.
Aunt Kiki opened the door and waited for me to
go in first. I did, dragging my two boxes along.
When the door was shut close, she laughed
heartily to me.
“Isa I know you gonna be quite disappointed
with my home, it’s a little messy and not so
large like yours.. It’s only for a week and you’ll
be back to your large home.” she said as I
stared at the messy sitting-room in scattered
sheets of papers and crayons.
“You know Isa dear, im a nursery school
teacher and I do home lessons for some of my
kids. They are great. You’ll love them all when
you see them tomorrow.” she said.
I rolled my eyes, “I need a shower, food and a
soft bed to sleep on. Im exhausted.” I said and
“Well Isa, I’ve not cooked anything, so im
gonna show you your room, so you shower and
then come help me out in the kitchen dear.”
I raised my brows.
Now this is what i’ve never done in my life.
“I’ve never neared a kitchen Aunt. I am in no
way going to the kitchen, especially not yours.
Don’t you have a maid. I could have called Jo
to come with me.” I said.
“And who is Jo?” she asked.
“My maid.” I said.
“Ohh I do everything in here myself cos Im fit
to, so I don’t need a maid and don’t think I’ve
got a bad ugly looking kitchen, it’s quite lovely
Isa dear.” she said.
I rolled my eyes, “Whatever Aunt. Ain’t you
showing me the bedroom anymore? come on,
She smiled. “Ofcourse I will, follow me.” she
said and I did.
We took the staircase, and soon we stepped
into a narrow corridor with connected doors.
She passed the first door, second door and
then stopped at the third.
“Oh yeah here.” she said and slide the key into
the door lock.
The door opened and she walked in. I did.
It’s quite lovely, with pink rug, bedspreads and
Pink is my favourite.
How did she know?
“When your dad called me that you’do be
coming for a stay, I was so suprised and
happy. I knew you love pink so deeply, so I
had to get a pink fur rug,curtains, bedspreads
and pillowcases. Hope you like it?”
I nodded, “It’s quite cool but mine’s got more
pinks.” I said.
“Yeah I know. You keep your luggages over
there, the closet can take in all your clothes.”
I’ll keep my boxes beside the blue closet, then
arrange my clothes in the closet.
“Aunt Kiki, is the closet clean? I hope there’s
no cobwebs. I hate cobwebs.” I said.
She smiled, “It’s cleaned Isa but if you find any
cobweb, then you take it off.” she said and I
twisted my face in horror.
“No way! You don’t expect me to touch cobweb
with my hands!” I screamed.
“No Isa, there’s a broom in the bathroom, you
use that.” she said.
I rolled my eyes, “I don’t touch brooms, they
might pierce into my hands and.. ” she cut me
“No Isa, you hold brooms at their handle, and
nothing like such will occur. Now I’do leave for
you to freshen up, then join me at the kitchen.
It’s by the left after the dinning-room.” she
said, then smiled and left, closing the door.
Crazy. This room doesn’t even smell nice.
And the bed isn’t as large and soft the way I
like my bed to be.
Im calling dad right now, I can’t stay here for a
I wanted to spend my holidays at Sunmay
Beach with Katy and Ariana but dad was not
changing his mind for me to spend them in this
cracked up house with an lazy Aunt and no
She can’t even make a meal by herself! Her
sitting-room was so messy. Why!
And ugh! she’s only a nursery school teacher!
I opened my smaller pink box and it all
contained my underwears, sleeping wears,
including my makeup-kit too, my pink iphone
tablet and pink headset.
I took out my tablet and headphone, got out a
pink undies to wear and brought out my make
out kit too.
I brought out my phone from my little sticker
chain-bag and dialled dad’s line.
It rang twice before he picked up.
“Dad!” I half cried.
“Isa darling, how are you? Your Aunt had
called already to tell me you are home safely.
Hope you like your aunt and her home? she’s
really lovely. You gonna enjoy your stay there,
“No dad. There’s nothing enjoyable here, I
don’t wanna stay here dad. I wanna come
“No Isa, you have to stay with your Aunt for
“I don’t want!” I shouted.
“You have to dear. I’ll call you by seven Isa,
bye for now and don’t forget to be nice to your
Aunt and help her out. Do whatever she tells
you to do. I love you.” he said and before I
could talk, he dropped the call.
I stamped my feet on the ground in fierce
I sat there, staring at my iphone.
I felt like smatching it at the damn blue wall.
But after few minutes, I think my anger calmed
I stood up and walked to the closet, opened it
to find the closet looking so not good and there
I screamed with anger.
“Isa! Are you okay there?” I heard Aunt. Kiki’s
voice from the staircase I think.
Soon my bedroom door opened and she
rushed in, looking scared.
“Are you alright Isa? I heard you screaming.”
“Im not! there’s cobwebs!” I yelled.
She placed her hands on her chest and sighed.
“Oh my! Isa. You got me so scared. It’s only
cobwebs dear. The broom is over there at the
bathroom. Get it and clean them off.” she said
with a smile, turned,walked out and closed the
I fumed and stamped my feet on the ground.
Now what the hell is this?
All my life i’ve never touched a broom!
Arghhhhhhhhh! I feel like disappearing outta
here! back to my home. My sweet bedroom! my
maid Jo, my dad, my friends and spend my
holidays at Sunmay beach with Katy and
Not here! in a cobweb filled room!
Realizing there’s nothing I can do about this, I
walked into the bathroom. It wasn’t that small
but there’s no bathtub, no jacuzzi just a shower
cubicle and toilet.
I hissed and went for the broom beside the
vanity unit, grabbed it and after another brief
unsatisfied look at the bathroom once more, I
walked out to the bedroom, over to the closet
and with my face twisted in disgust, I cleaned
off the stupid cobweb and threw the broom only
for it to land on the fur rug and dirty the spot it
I hissed leaving it there, and began to arrange
my clothes in the closet, but first spreading
some perfume inside.
After so much time, I was finally done. Aunt Kiki
have not come since then.
She’s nothing but mean and lazy!
I undressed, picked up my pink towel, wrapped
it around my body, collected my soap dish and
toiletry bag and headed into the bathroom.
I hate bathing in the shower! I love Jacuzzi in
the morning and bathtub in the night!
But here, i’ve got no choice. I brushed, then
went into the shower cubicle to bathe.
I dressed into a pink bomshort and a light
purple tank top, packed my brown hair into a
ponytail and applied mascara on my long
eyelashes, a little foundation on my smooth
face and a little pink lipgloss on my small lips.
I touched the necklace on my neck.
A tiny blue stone fixed into the locket with slim
but strong black rope which held round to my
My dad never told me how he got this necklace
but it’s been on my neck ever since I was born
with a strict warning of me, never to take it out
of my neck.
Though I never like it, but i’ve obeyed dad’s
Looking at myself in the mirror, I look so
beautiful…and im so proud of my beauty and
You know how good it feels to be marked in
school as the most beautiful student?
For you to be signed as the school billboard
model and the current EyeGirl.
For you to have Katy, Mari Mayn-the american
singer’s daughter, and Arianna, the ex-
governor’s granddaughter as friends.
That’s a whole lot of pride.
But my dad think they are nothing but bad
I’ve been trying to make him see that they
aren’t but he’s not understanding.
Sometimes, I want to say that I hate my dad
but I know that’s a lie. I can never hate my
dad, I love him. He’s the best dad in the whole
I sat back on the bed, picked up my tablet and
connected on a video call to Katy… sure thing
is that, I love Katy Mayn more.
She picked up and her grinning face came on.
“Woah! Isaaaaa!” she yelled.
My eyes first fell on the background.
Woah… she’s at the beach.
I could see passing people in bikini and shorts.
Katy, she wore a blue bikini with sunglasses
and a sun hat.
“Isaaa, come on. Look at your face.” she said,
laughing as air blew through her long black
“Sunmay beach?” I asked.
“No.. iebeach, but Ariana and I would be going
to Sunmay beach next tomorrowwww. ” she
I sighed. “Im gonna miss that so much.”
“We are gonna miss you too. I got a new
charming guy, Raven. He’s so handsome and
hot… We’ll be going to Sunmay together and
his super handsome friend too, he wanted to
meet you so badly.”
“Awwwwn what does his name sound like?” I
“Alex. He’s so handsome.” she said.
I sighed in anger, “Im gonna miss so much.” I
“Yeah alot.” she said and made a sad face.
“What about Ariana?”
“She went to get drinks with Davis. You know
she’s so crazy about him. Hahaha.”
“I don’t like him.” I said.
“Me too but he’s cute tho.” she said.
“Isa Raven is so romantic, you know what? we
hangout yesterday night, drank till we got tipsy
and getting to his house, we did some naughty
plays.” she said and giggled.
“Woah. How rich is he?”
“Super rich and he’s studying in Germanyyyy.”
“What about his friend, uhmm Alex?”
“How did you meet them Katy?”
“Seriously girl, my mom is a top American
singer, have you forgotten?” she laughed.
I smiled, “Have fun girl. I hate here. It’s so
boring and frustrating. My dad just hate me to
bring me in this goddamn place.”
“Im so sorry Isa, you know there’s nothing we
could have done to make him change his mind.
You don’t worry, we gonna get you lots of
goodies.” she said.
Then she raised her brows, “Ariana is coming
with Davis. Let me run to them. First, check out
the beach water.” she said and turned to the
It look beautiful with people in, swimming and
playing.. So much fun.
“Fun right?” she asked.
“Yeah.” I said.
“Ariana, come talk with Isa.” Katy called on
“Oh my God Isaaa!!” I heard Arianna shout.
Coming down the stairs to the sitting-room,
Aunt Kiki wasn’t in.
Is she still in the kitchen? Preparing what
I followed the direction to the kitchen she gave
me, and there was she in the nice looking but
small kitchen, sitting on a back-chair and
reading a newspaper with her glasses.
She raised her face and smiled.
“Great. Finally you are here. Over there is the
pot of food, serve yourself with a dish.” she
I frowned, “And what food is that and why
should I touch a pot! i’ve never done that!?”
“Rice dear. You’ll like it.” she said.
“No way! I hate rice!” I said.
“Fine Isa dear, inside the fridge are the milk
carton, make yourself a tea, then we gonna
cook your type of dish later okay?” she said
with a smile.
I hissed and headed to the fridge. Im hungry
and I can’t bear it.
I opened the fridge to find something more
better, cornflakes and milk.
The doorbell rang and she stood up.
“Ohh it must be Catherine” she said and
I signed and took out the cornflake box and
Picked out a plate, spoon and water.
I have slight idea how to make this thing.
I poured in the cornflakes, milk and water but
the water became much.
I hissed and threw the shit into the sink, walked
to the fridge, grabbed a biscuit pack and a
juice, closed back the fridge, sat on the back-
seat and began eating.
