Day 4: Looking For Alaska By John Green (Part 2)
I slammed the door shut and slid the floor sighing, finally this day was over.
I heard bangs from the kitchen.
My parents weren’t due back from Hawaii for a week.
My eyes widened. I armed myself and jumped behind the couch.
“Kat is tha-what are you doing,” I heard my brother ask.
“I-I thought you were a robber… wait what are you doing here!?”
“And you were going to defend yourself with an umbrella?” He chuckled.
I glared at him waiting for a reply to my question.
“I missed you?” He said smiling at me.
“Ha!” I snorted.
“It’s true, I knew mom and dad wouldn’t be home and I wanted to see how you were doing,” he said a hurt expression spreading across his face.
I wasn’t buying it.
I slammed my door shut.
It was partly the book’s fault. Alaska, who is a person believe it or not, sounded wonderful, spontaneous, but the ending devastated me. There were so many unanswered questions.
However I think i was starting to like characters in books better than actual people.
