3. My 18th Birthday Bummer
I woke up to my alarm clock going off. I grabbed my uniform and my hair things. I walked to the womens locker room and changed. I did my hair in a low bun. I put a little make up on and washed my hands. I walked to my locker and put my clothes in there. I walked over to where they had all the girls shoes. I grabbed my tan work boots and put them on. I walked back to my room and grabbed my phone. I put it in the right pants pocket and walked to lunch room. The only thing special was that it was my birthday. Here they made big deal about a teenager turning 18. That means we can get deployed. I really wanted to get deployed.
"good morning Keeylin. How old are you." Jack asked.
"well I am 18 years old. I am now Solider Keeylin to you. You are still 17." I said
"yah. Did you hear Janets birthday is today." Jack said.
"yes I did. She is 13 years old. She has 5 more years until she can get deployed." I said. we walked in and all eyes were on me. I walked further in and i got a bunch of "happy birthdays" from everyone. I said thanks and then got my breakfast. I sat down and started to eat until Janet came running up to me.
"Happy Birthday Keeylin. Are you going to get deployed? Can you come to my party I am having a special guest." Janet said.
"I might get deployed and yes I will go to your party." I said.
"yes thank you so much." Janet said. With that she ran off to her other party guests.
I pulled my phone out and looked on twitter. There was nothing interesting on it. I got a couple happy birthdays but that was it. I looked at One Directions twitter account and it said "hey were coming to the US for a special party." I wanted to know what the special party was but I didnt care at all. I had a crush on someone but I dont think he likes me back.
His name is Casey. He is 20 years old and is training to be deployed. I hope I get deployed with him.
"hey princess Happy birthday." My father said.
"aww thanks dad. Can you let me get deployed. You can sign the papers right NOW" I said
"well honey your mother and I decided that you will not be deployed." My father said.
Did he just crush my dream. Yes he did. I walked away. HE couldn't run my life. I sat in my room thinking about my life if I didnt get deployed. Yes I would still live here. I would be kicked out of Fort McGee. I just want to fight like my father and grandfather did. I want to let everyone in America free.
