that night i dreamed of fire. first it was like hot chocolate on a snow day, then it was like a burn you get for touching the oven while it was still hot. next a minor burn. the kind of burn you get for putting your hand too close to the fire pit. last my whole body was on fire. i started to sweat and the fire got uncomfortable. that's when the screaming started. i woke up drenched in sweat. it took me a few seconds few second to calm down. i went in the bathroom and grabbed a cup and filled it with water from the faucet. i put it up to my lips and with one gulp it was gone. i did this five times before my thirst level got satisfied. then i realized i was shaking. maybe it was from fear or shock either way i couldn't stop.
i took a quick shower and washed my hair. i groaned noticing the dye still didn't come out. as i was picking out my clothes i remembered what Justin said. i was apparently a girly girl for the day:
for the first time in a long time a felt.. important and wanted. i woke cidney up and went downstairs to fix a bowl of froot loops. i heard a knock on the door and went to open it. gale stood there with a bunch of roses. i laughed. he does stuff like this when he knows he's being a douche. i accepted them gratefully and put them on the table.
you cold? he asked i noticed that i was still shaking. i drew in a deep breathe prepared to tell him about my dream when i started crying. my knees buckled but before i could fall he caught me. he carried me to the couch ad we stayed there for who knows how long. when the crying stopped the puke came. i made it to the bathroom just in time. he held my hair back until i was finished.
i brushed my teeth twice before going to lay down on the couch. gale played with my hair while i laid down
can i ask you something? he said sounding nervous i nodded my head and sat up.
he cleared his throat. are you pregnant he asked quickly. i don't know why but his question brought me to hysterics. i fell off the couch and rolled on the ground. after like 5 minutes. i wiped the tears from my eyes. thank god i wore waterproof make-up.
why would you think- oh you mean me being emotional and getting "morning sick". no i don't think i am. but i do feel a lot better now. maybe i am pregnant. i stated mysteriously
he glared at me. Chancidy Mariah Williams if you are- he said before i cut him off. no im not pregnant gale im smarter than that. i said
he breathed a sigh of relief. i gasped and ran for my froot loops. nooo i yelled looking at the soggy mess that was suppose to be my cereal. it almost brought tears to my eyes as i through them away. i heard gale snicker behind me and rolled my eyes. before i could confront him cidney came skipping down stairs looking cheery. she looked especially pretty today. :
i smiled at her and grabbed her arm. c'mon gale i said opening the door we walked to the bus stop while the wind blew lightly.
as usual bella was there waiting. she looked pretty too:
red hair she teased i rolled my eyes and gently punched her in the shoulder. you got jokes i said
