8. Saturday

Why me!

I woke up with a pain in my neck. I fell asleep in the wrong position. I rubbed my neck soothingly and yawned. I hopped out of bed and saw that today was Saturday and 7:42am. I usually wake up at 8, why the sudden change. I grabbed my phone and checked for any notifications then it hit me. Last nights events caused me to be grounded. I sighed and put my phone down and turned it off. I went to my bathroom and splashed water in my face. I dried my face with my towel. I ran shower water since I didn't take one last night and headed for my closet. I grabbed a bathing suit which was pink and orange in a cute triangle pattern and gray shorts and a white crotchet. I also grabbed a pair of pink TOMS. I walked to my sink and placed the clothes on the counter. I grabbed shampoo and conditioner and got in the shower. I washed my hair first and then my body. I got out to see the time reading 8:14, I have been in here longer than usual. I put on my bathing suit and then my other clothes. I went to my closet and chose a big bag that was brown and plain. I went to my other bathroom closet which was filled with towels, blankets, girl stuff, soaps and perfume and other stuff I grabbed a orange towel. I put on my TOMS and stuffed the towel in the bag. I put a spare of clothes like a red shirt and jean shorts. I got a pair of gray flip flops and was done. I grabbed a few ponytail holders and put them on my wrist. I checked my outfit and approved. I left my room only to run into my mom.

"Grace where are you going?" My mom asked curious to what I was wearing.

"I am going to the lake for a little swim. I am grounded but you never said anything about not swimming." I said setting my bag down.

"I should make it count but i won't. Be home by 12, ok. Any later and you will be grounded longer." She says with a stern tone.

"Ok thanks mom, love you bye!" I say happy and cheery unlike last night. I start walking towards the stairs.

" Aren't you going to eat breakfast?" My mom says making me turn around. I think for a moment.

" No, I want to go swimming as soon as possible. I really don't want to have to wait 30 minutes or later. I will stop by or go to the local diner place and eat. That means I need money. Please mom!" I say really fast.

"Ok. I will give you a $20 so you can eat. Don't lose it!" My mom warns. I follow her to her room as she grabs a $20 from her wallet. I gladly accept it and give her a kiss on the cheek and run downstairs. I look around and stuff the money in my bag. I grab a pair of keys off from the hook in the foyer and unlock the door and smile. The air is nice and a good breeze is going. It is perfectly warm and cloudy. I lock the door and see the new neighbors garage open as they unpack stuff for their garage. I walk my usual path to the lake. I have to walk by their house because that's part of my path. I smile and wave to the neighbors and think of how long I want to swim and what time I want to eat. I continue in my path until I feel a jerk of my bag. I turn to look and see a man trying to take my bag. I pull back and forth trying to free my bag of him. I scream for help as I do this action.

"Come on, just give me the bag." He says panting. I kick at his legs and he falls to the pavement. His arms are still latched on to my bag. I let go of one of my hands and scratch at his arm. He whimpers and gets up on his feet and pulls out a knife. I am at official terror.

"LET GO OF THE BAG!" He yells frustrated. I kick him swiftly and he clutches his manhood area. I grab my bag and run like crazy. He gets up and chases after me. I run into a public area and pick up my pace. I spot a McDonalds and run inside. I look for the guy and he's gone. Some customers look at me like I'm crazy. I breathe hard and go to the front of the line.

"Someone tried to take my bag, he had a knife." I say trying to steady my breathing. The worker looks at me and ask on what he looked like. I can't remember all of a sudden. I really can't.

"I don't know." I say sounding probably a bit crazy.

"We can't help you. I am sorry. You are welcome to stay here for comfort. He says smiling. I nod and stay focused on the outside world. I sit in a booth. I go to the bathroom and go do my business. I come out and check outside. I walk out and continue my path. I keep looking around. I start to walk fast to the lake. Once I arrive I check around one last time. I see a few innocent people at the lake. I calm my nerves and set a area. I place my bag down and get ready. I strip and head in the cool water. I relax and breathe at a steady pace as I enter. I start swimming around and going underwater. I enjoy myself until I feel and hear someone else enter the water. I look and see a older man start swimming. I sigh and tell myself to calm down. Nothing will happen. I keep swimming. Soon I feel something hit my leg and look and see the man. He apologizes and continues swimming. I accept and continue. I go underwater and and try to come up but something is holding me down, I look up and see the man smile at what he's doing. I start flailing around trying to come up for air. He pushes me down with his arm. I try hitting but the water slows my actions. I decide to bite and as gross as that is, it works in my favor. I am let up and breathe for my dear life. The man pulls my hair down and I hit him in the face and swim away from him. He tries to follow but fails, lucky for me I am faster. I get out the water and pull out my towel. I dry myself and glance at the man and he laughs and splashes in my direction. I look away and decide to eat. I take out my spare clothes and shoes and put them on over my swimsuit. I grab my stuff and go. I walk to a diner called Merrill's Diner. I go in and say hi to the waitress. I sat at a booth. I order a apple pie slice and hot chocolate. I hear the bell go off as someone enters the diner. I look and see a stranger. I get my food in less than 5 minutes, and I dig in to the food. The apple pie feels hot and warm in my body. I enjoy the taste and try to savor the flavor. I pay $8 and exit. I walk home and check my surroundings. I see my home and walk fast. I pull out my keys and enter my house. I check the clock which reads 11:23am. I sigh and place my hair in a ponytail. My hair is still wet. I see Buddy wagging his tail and panting.

"Hi buddy, it's just me." I say patting his head. I see Kylie follow behind him and smile at me.

"Hey sis, how was your swim?" She asks happy.

"Good. What did you do while I was gone?" I ask. She pets Buddy while replying "I helped make breakfast."

"What did you make?" I say smelling food.

"I made blueberry waffles topped with fresh strawberry's." She says smiling her teeth. I laugh and walk to the kitchen. I immediately take in the waffles and the plate of thick, fluffy waffles. I set my bag on the stools and grab the keys and remaining $12. I head to the foyer and set the keys on there, I walk upstairs and into the parent's room. I see my mom talking on the phone and my dad in the bathroom.

"Hey mom, I have the leftover money." I say softly. I walk over and put it in her hand. She smiles and mouths 'thank you'. I nod and walk downstairs and sit on the couch and lie there.

"You smell like fish!" Kylie says pinching her nose. I smell my hair and agree. I get up and head upstairs again with my bag. I drop my bag on the floor in my bathroom and run the shower. I choose a pair of sweatpants and a blue tank top. I get in and wash myself and my hair. I get out and see the time as 11:58am. I put my hair in a ponytail and smell it, it smells like strawberry's. I take my clothes out my bag and grab my clothes on the floor by the shower and out those in my hamper. I jump on my bed and lie there. I don't know for how long but I felt good, even being grounded. I lied there and thought on how I was going to deal with Tuesday, I have to face Brittany, Tiffany, Nicole, and Jessica. Would they hurt me?
