The Reason I Can Sleep at Night

18 year old Carter has been through a lot in the last month. When she finally is able to go back to school she goes through a lot of different things that she thought she would go through before, meets people she could only dream about.


13. Good morning


“Ring! Ring! Ring!” I look at my phone then over at Jade who is still sound asleep.  “Hello?” I say into the phone quietly, still trying to prevent Jade from waking up. I don’t even know why I’m trying not to wake her up, I mean, she can sleep through anything.

              “Hey Carter, it’s Zayn. Why aren’t you outside yet?” He asks. ‘Shoot’ I think to myself.

              “Uh, yeah. We’ll be down in like, uhm, ten minutes.” I say hanging up the phone.

              “Wake up Jade we have school!” she pulls herself up and looks at me “School doesn’t start for another hour.”

              “I already know that, I just want you to be ready because Zayn is picking us up.” I make an excuse. She makes a weird whining noise, gets up, and goes into the bathroom to do whatever.

              I go to my closet and pick out a white tank top and pair it with a peach colored sweater along with some light blue jeans. I put on some socks and shoes. By the time I finish getting dressed, Jade is out of the bathroom with wet hair. “I took a shower.” she announces. “Yeah I can tell.” I say with a hint of sarcasm. She rolls her eyes and grabs a sweatshirt from my closet. “Are you going to ask?” I say. “Well no.” She starts, “I just figured I could take it because I brought no other clothes.” “Oh. Okay. You can borrow some other clothes too then.” I say.

        A car horn sounds from outside and right away I know its Zayn. “Come on Jade! Zayn’s here!”

              We both rush outside and see a black sports car in front of my house. Zayn is sitting in the front, Niall is sitting in the back with a stranger that I don’t know. That scares me a little but I have a feeling I’ll be fine.

              “Hey Carter!” Zayn chirps from the front seat, “This is Romano-“ “But you can call me Roman” ‘Roman’ interrupts Zayn.

              I crawl in the front with Zayn and Jade get in the back between Niall and Roman.
