I woke up to Todd shaking me like a rag doll. I jumped, opening one eye to find Todd with a pickle jar in his hands.
I closed both my eyes and threw the sheets back over my head “Is someone dead or hurt? If not, leave me alone!” I groaned from under the sheets.
“No, but I can’t get this jar open and I really want pickles for breakfast” Todd complained.
My eyes fluttered open, the light blinded me.
I snatched the jar out of his hands. He looked desperate. The jar popped open easily, Todd was a weak child. I gave him back his jar and perched myself on my elbows as I stared at him while he dipped his fingers on the pickle jar and got a pickle, then shoved it in his mouth. He was dripping pickle juice all over my carpet, I hated the smell of pickle juice.
“You should really start eating actual meals” I told Todd.
“And you should really start being pretty” He sneered as he dangled a pickle above his mouth waiting for the juice to stop dripping.
“You are such a nerd” I mumbled as Todd walked away carefully holding the jar of pickles.
He left my door open and I saw him walk down the stairs. “You’re welcome by the way!” I yelled at him as he stuck his tongue out at me. I didn’t bother going back to bed. I was already awake. I ran down the steps and met Todd at the kitchen table took a pickle out of his jar. My mom was still asleep, she gets up right before she takes Todd to school.
“No!” Todd shrieked as his pickle plummeted to the ground. I laughed at him a bit, then put a serious face on. I was still upset with him, I didn’t want him thinking everything was fine now. If anything, the situation got worse.
I had about an hour until I had to leave for school. My mom came down the steps and took Todd to school while I finished getting ready. I scrunched my hair and put it in a messy bun, then put on some skinny jeans and a white t shirt that said ‘I love Harry Styles’ in black lettering. He’s such a cutie. I struggled to put my converse high tops on. They were new and haven’t been broken in yet. I wasn’t too hungry so I skipped breakfast. I was dreading to go to school and see Josh, thank god it was Friday.
