It is currently seven thirty and the sun is beginning to set. As I was taking the dishes to the kitchen I begin the wonder if should go to the Back Cove to meet up with Alex.
Okay, I'll make myself a deal if finish the dishes before eight o'clock I will go, but I do not finish before eight o'clock I will not go.
The clock is ticking and I am not even sure I should even go to the Back Cove. I mean, there is a curfew set at nine o'clock for the uncured and I just so happen to be uncured. If I get caught outside after nine o'clock I could get in some serious trouble.
Sweetie, you do not have to clean up the dishes tonight.
Yes, I am sure.
Okay, are you sure?
Is this the time to ask her if I can go out but I cannot just ask to go to the Back Cove this close to curfew. Maybe I can lie and ask if I can go to Hana's house.
This is not good at all, she started to get suspicious but I found a way to convince her.
This late at night?
Okay, I will let you go but make sure you are back before curfew.
Aunt Carol, can I go over to Hana's house?
Yeah, so I can get some pointers about the evaluations.
I was happy she let me go but she does not know the real reason why. I felt really guilty for lying and I was scared of the consequences if I get caught outside after nine o'clock. I left the house anyway and got on my bike and left to go to the Back Cove...
I have never broken the rules before. What will happen at the Back Cove? What will happen if I get caught outside after curfew?
