11. “Beep! Beep! Beep!”
“Beep! Beep! Beep!”
I woke up to my annoying alarm beeping. I groaned as I opened just one eye and lazily slammed my hand on the snooze button. In the middle of the room I stood with my hair a mess. I walked to the bathroom and washed my face to wake me up a bit. I looked in the mirror, I looked like a complete wreck and I only had an hour to transform that wreck into beauty. Surprisingly, I succeed at doing that everyday. I opened the cabinet and put Maybelline mascara on my eyelashes, then came Todd running into the bathroom messing up my makeup.
“Todd, you idiot!” I screamed at him with mascara smeared across my cheek.
“Sorry!” He screamed back as he raced out of the bathroom with his toothbrush in his hand.
I don’t know what he was going to do with his toothbrush if he didn’t have any toothpaste. I just rolled my eyes as I wet a wash cloth and wiped away the mascara on my cheek. I heard the door open as my mom yelled “I’m taking your brother to school! I’ll be back soon!” My brother’s school started earlier than mine, my mom drives him in the morning and he gets on the bus in the afternoon.
I brushed my knotted brown hair until it was as smooth as silk and pinned up the hair that always hung in front of my face with a little black clip. I changed from my pajamas into a green shirt with flowers climbing up the right side. I matched the shirt with a pair of white shorts from Forever 21 and ran downstairs to get something to eat. My dad was at another job interview so I was on my own until my mom got home. I opened the cabinet, found myself some cinnamon, mixed it with applesauce, and called it breakfast. I was in the middle of brushing my teeth when I heard the door creak open. I knew it was my mom but I still peaked my head out the doorway to make sure.
“Abby! You ready for school?” My mom yelled from the bottom of the steps.
I tried to answer her but all that came out was a bunch of gibberish and spit. I haven’t mastered talking with toothpaste in my mouth yet. I spit it the sink and rinsed my mouth, then put my toothbrush back. I grabbed my backpack and my phone, slipped some shoes on, and met my mom who had her keys in her hands at the bottom of the steps. We got in the car and we were off.
