The Little House On The Hill Chapter 1


I flew out of bed excitedly. I was fully awake before the alarm went anyway. My family and I had just moved here a week ago, but I hadn’t seen the cottage until yesterday. Ever since, I had been shivering with excitement and anticipation to explore it.

I ran to the bathroom and brushed my teeth, after that, I threw on some shorts and a shirt, then streaked down the stairs… just to remember that school started today. Exploring would have to wait. My shoulders slumped as I slowly climbed the steps.

I picked up my backpack, which was filled with schoolbooks, and went back downstairs.

“Hi mom!” I said as I slid into a chair in the kitchen. She slid a steaming plate of pancakes in front of me.

“Good morning, sweetheart.” She said sadly. Her eyes looked puffy this morning. I didn’t know why, but she looked sad enough, so I didn’t ask.
