Of course Afadeo was unaware of this. A navy blue truck sporting Red Bull Racing Insignia pulled up outside their house, attracting numerous curiosity from neighbours. There was a knock at the door. Afadeo opened the door. There was a man wearing funny clothes and carrying what looked like a helmet standing outside, Afadeo’s jaw dropped as the mysterious man came into the light —it was Mark Webber! “G’day Afadeo mate, herd you liked racing cars would you like to come and see mine?” asked Mark “yes please’! ex- claimed Afadeo. The back of the truck was opened and the sleek F1 car was rolled out onto the street, by now several heads had popped up at fences and through curtains dumbfounded at what they were seeing! Afadeo gazed in awe at the slender F1 car he had one just like it only much, much smaller. “Should we fire her up Afadeo”? asked Mark.“Yes please!’ came the reply. Mark climbed into the car and “ZOOM” the car took off down the street with the noise coming from it rattling windows of house windows in the near-vicinity, the noise could be heard as far as Melbourne proper, Mark executed a perfect doughnut at the end of the street and came hurtling back towards them at a slow 170 kmh an hour! But the night still had more surprises to come, Karen’s brother happened to work for the Hyundai A-League team the Melbourne Victory, through him Karen had organized some of the players to make a guest appearance at the Sleep over Spectacular. Afadeo loved soccer and had recently taken an interest in the team. Once more the doorbell rang, Afadeo ran to the door and answered it to find three men standing outside, one of them had a soccer ball under his arm, “hello Afadeo, herd you liked soccer, I’m Craig Moore the captain of the Melbourne Victory soccer team. Afadeo was gobsmacked; the other two players introduced themselves as Tomoo Matanewie and Reinaldo Asis. the new arrivals made their way inside, by now the house was getting pretty crowded , the neighbours couldn’t believe what they were seeing, some thought someone famous lived in the house! As the hour drew near they started the count down TEN, NINE, EIGHT, SEVEN, SIX, FIVE, FOUR, THREE, TWO, ONE HAPPY NEW YEAR! on cue the midnight fireworks erupted into the sky welcoming in the new year. A year which had in store new challenges, people and lows and highs for Afadeo-Meh-Ajid.
