The soldiers kicked down the door of the house and pulled the mother and father out of bed, with Alem running into the parents room with shock.
The next day Alem had to go to England with his father to keep safe from the war for a little while.
When they arrived in London, Alem was so excited and so surprised by what he saw. Alem loved London so far. Then they both took a taxi to a hotel that they were staying at.
After staying for several days, one day Alem's father was gone... and all his stuff to. Then two ladies walked in with a note telling Alem that his father had left to go back to his country to find his mother. These ladies were from the refugee council.
Alem left and went with the ladies to the refugee centre. A foster family were arranged for Alem to stay with. Then they hopped in a car and left to meet them. Their name was Mr and Mrs Fitzgerald and there daughter Ruth. Who didn't look to excited to see Alem.
Alem stayed there for a long time. He loved it there but his room was in the attic. Alem's father would write letters to Alem saying i'll be coming soon. Then one day Alem got a letter from his father saying that he's coming home because Alem's mother had died.
