1. Looking for a job

 Alex's POV

 I woke up to the annoying buzzing of my alarm clock. I don't know why I haven't taken off the alarm, I don't need it anymore. I had just graduated high school. I'm not planning on going to college or doing anymore schooling. But I have a beautiful wonderful two year old son, Brandon, so I have to get a job. I walked outside to see if jake, the paperboy, has brought my newspaper. He still hadn't reached my house. I was deep in thought for a while when my thoughts and I were startled by some object hitting my face, then the object landed on the ground, it was the newspaper.

 "Sorry Alex didn't see ya there!" Jake apologized.

 "It's ok Jake I didn't get any paper cuts so I think I'll live!" I responded. He just laughed and rode his bike away throwing the rest of the newspapers at the houses with no difficuilty or lo sing. Bis balance.  He does the whole old school ride a bike and through the newspaper thing, he rides a bike around the neighborhood and tosses the papers at every house he passes, I think it's pretty neat, better than having him vandalizing houses, it's good that he has a job.

 Alright so I need a job for two main reasons 1. I need money, and 2. I have a child to feed.

 Late but, I love with my grandparents, my birth parents died on a cold January night in 2011, it's been two years since their passing, going to be three. *Sigh* sad that my son didn't even get a chance to meet his wonderful grandparents, may the rest in peace.

 I'm looking for a good pay job but also one that wouldn't tire me out too much, I may sound lazy but I have a child to take care of! So I guess I'll go with...a babysitter? Well I'll just have to find a rich family, yeah yeah yeah I sound selfish but like I said before I need  money and I have to take care of my son.

 I skimmed my finger through the newspaper, the closest I could get to babysitter was nurse. So I decided to give it a shot and go for a  job interview. What's the worst that could happen. I called the number listed under the job. I have an interview tomorrow. Yeah! But for now I need to get some shut eye. Wow how time passes by when you need a job. It's already 8:30! I know it's really early but I'm still used to my school sleeping schedule.  Well I'll just have to change that. 

 Before going to bed I decided I would go check on my grandparents and Brandon, my grandparents were fast asleep, grandpa or so I like to call pa was snoring like crazy! As usual. Then I checked on Brandon. He was asleep too. I gave him a kiss on the forehead and was about to leave when I felt a small warm hand grab my wrist,

 "Mommy can I sleep with you? I scared of monsters under bed," Brandon asked.

 "Sure buddy let me just check under your bed real quick to scare away the monsters ok?" He just nodded. I looked under the bed, I had an idea. I put my hand in under the bed,"AAAAH buddy help me the monsters got me!" 

 "Mommy I just kidding. I not scared of monsters! I just wanna sleep with mommy," I started laughing, for a two year old he sure is sharp!

 I picked him up and carried him to my room. I laid him on my bed, and then laid beside him.

 "Good night mommy, I love you," he whispered in my ear.

 "I love you too buddy, good night," I gave him a kiss on the top of his head and he slowly drifted off into what I think a good sleep. I cuddled him closer to my body, he nuzzled his head under my chin putting his tiny hand on my chest.

 I starred at my beautiful son, his soft snores being the onky sound in the quiet room. It hurts me to see my child grow up with just one parent, with just a mommy, no daddy. Well I never want to see his daddy! His daddy is my uncle Roy and he raped me, resulting in Brandon. I don't think Brandon is a mistake, I love him to bits! I just think he came too soon, and not the right way, he doesn't even have a father! I hate that bastard! He doesn't even help out with Brandon, well fine by me! I probably wouldn't have taken his help anyway, not after what he did! 

 My head was starting to hurt from my thoughts. I need to get some rest  for my interview tomorrow, Hope it goes well!
