I leaned up on my elbow and grabbed my phone to turn off my stupid alarm. Ugh I have work today. My name is Elise Walker but Ellie for short, im 17 and no longer go to school. I dropped out, I know, big mistake. But it was only because I needed money and food. Things that my parents could no longer give me because my mom died of cancer when I was 16. My dad killed himself a few weeks after my mom went because he was so heartbroken. My parents were so in love that im surprised they new they had a kid.
Anyways, I live in my parents old house but might move because I don't have even money to keep paying all these bills with the job I have. I work at a restaurant a few blocks down. Its not the best job but its going to have to work. I don't have a boyfriend to help out probably because I don't have time for one and I don't really interact with anyone anymore. Once my parents died, I lost contact with family and friends. The government were going to put me in a kids home but my aunt said I could live with her. My aunt doesn't really like me but she didn't want to see me in a childrens home. So I did her a favor and moved out.
Well that's a little about my past... so where was I? oh yeah.
I turned off my alarm and slowly got out of bed. It was 7:30 am. I walked over to my closet and dug out my work uniform. It was a maroon shirt and some black skinny jeans. The restaurant I work it is called Nandos. It had great food and is actually really popular. Some of my old friends go there but I always try to avoid them.
I walked over to the bathroom and took a quick shower. I didn't wash my hair because I usually do after work. I got out, dried myself, then threw on my clothes. I did some makeup which consisted of a light layer of cover up, blush, and mascara. I threw my light brown hair up in a bun because I really don't care how my hair looks at work. After that, I grabbed my phone that was on the charger and started walking to work. I didn't have a car before my parents died and still don't because I have little money.
The walk was about 10 minutes so not that long. I looked down at my maroon converse and soon enough, I found my self in front of Nandos. Another stressful day...
