…’ What did I tell you about the lights?’

I walked into my room like any other day when I saw a slightly different colour of light on the floor. I looked up. ‘Oh no.’ I gently whispered, my lights were on!

Mum is very strict about wasting energy and if she found out my lights were on all day, it would be bad, bad news.

The next thing I knew I could hear mum coming up the stairs. I rushed back into my room but it was too late…

“What did I tell you about the lights?” she grumbled, while staring into what seemed to be my soul!
