"Natalie, Natalie wake up."
Whispers a gentle voice in my right ear. I open my eyes to see me little 14 year old foster sister Heavenly, laying her head on my pillow staring at me. I yawn and stretch. Heavenly moves back and smiles at me.
"Good morning Heavenly."
"Good morning Natalie! She says cheerfully. "Do you know what today is?"
I sit up and look at her rubbing my eyes.
"Yeah, today is the day we both start a new school."
"Yes, your right Natalie! I'm so glad you remembered! But you probably don't remember what you promised me."
She looks at me with her baby blue puppy dog eyes. I brake a loud breath and stand up. I wrap my arm around Heavenly's shoulders.
"I do remember what I promised you Heaven. Now, let's go pick you out an outfit and find some elastics."
She looks up at me an gives me a huge smile. I smile back at her as she runs down the hall into her pink flowery room to get some undergarments. I chuckle and walk into the hallway and grab three towels, one for me, one for Heavenly, and one for our hair. I take a quick shower then dry off and tie my towel around me. I call to Heavenly.
"Heavenly, come get in the shower."
Heaven comes running with her hand full of elastics and my sock bun. She puts them on the bathroom counter and strips naked to get in the shower. I give her some privacy and go get my straightening iron heated up. I dry my hair then pin it up into a bun. I go into Heaven's room and put together some different outfits for her to choose from. Heaven turns off the shower, gets out and dries off.
"Natalie, where are you?"
"I'm in you room. Come choose an outfit you like and wanna wear today."
While she chooses I return to my room. I strap on a black bra and slip into a pair of black panties and fit into a black tank-top. I grab some white ankle socks and slip them on. I toss the towel into the tall, white laundry basket in the corner. I walk over to my closet and grab my black shirt with whites polka dots of its hanger and put it on. I pull out my drawer and yank out a pair of my faded black skinny jeans and shimmy my all into them. Then I zip and button them. I'm a ready. I return to Heavenly to see what outfit she's chosen.
"I like this one"
She points to the red t-shirt and black skinny jeans with the denim cropped jacket, and all black converses.
" I like that one too. Now go change."
I shut the door leaving it open a crack. I return to the bathroom and grab the sock bun and elastics. I brush out my hair and begin straightening. I see a red rose barrette in the pile Heavenly left. I smirk and pin my bangs to the side with it. It doesn't look bad actually.
"I'm all dressed Natalie!" Heaven calls
"Ok come to the bathroom so I can do your hair."
Heaven rushes to me with the smile from before still spread out on her face. I have her brush her teeth while I brush her long dirty blonde hair back into a high ponytail. Then begin putting her hair into a sock bun.
Me and Heavenly arrive at our bus stop and get on. We sit in the very back of the bus. Heavenly doesn't sit next to me though. Heavenly is jittery and is looking all around the bus, yet we're the only ones on it.
"Calm down Heaven, nobody is here just sit down ."
"We'll excuse me Natalie, but I'm a freshman. And it doesn't help that I never went to any school but our house."
Then a boy arrives and loads the bus. He has brown hair that he's fingering to perfection. He stares to the back where me and Heavenly are.....
