4. Shopping Encounters Part 1
The minute I walked through the door to my room, I flopped right on my bed face first. My eyes actually hurt from all of the note taking I took today, and my hand was cramping up because of the non-stop motion; I really have to get a laptop soon. I could feel my body start to drift to sleep, so I whipped my phone out of my pocket to summon Siri.
“Wake me up in 15 minutes.” I ordered.
“Okay, I set an alarm for 6:48pm.” She responded. I left my phone beside me and allowed my body to be covered by the blanket of sleep.
“Come on!” Theresa pleaded. “Just one party.”
“No, I’m okay.” I declined. “People will be drinking and smoking weed; I’ll pass.”
“Elsa, don’t be so prude. You’ve never been to a party before, so could you just come out this once?” My friend Rick pleaded. “If you don’t like it then we’ll never bring you to one again.” I put my pen down and closed my notebook.
“Where is it?” I asked putting my stuff away.
“Alice’s house. It’s right by the lake.” Theresa responded.
“Fine, I’ll go if you promise never to badger me about going again and you don’t throw me into the lake.” I stated.
“Wait… Are you in?” Rick asked. I sighed and got up from my desk.
“Yeah, I’m in.” I nodded. My two best friends jumped for joy and high-fived each other before leading me out of my house…
I groaned as the beginning guitar solo of an Arctic Monkeys song blasted from my phone. My body still felt heavy, but I forced myself off of my bed and ragged my bag to my puny desk. I flipped open my textbook and got working on all my assignments this semester. I literally touched the tip of my pen onto the paper when-
“Elsa! STOP WHATEVER YOU ARE DOING!!” Anna demanded as she busted into my room.
“Hello to you too.” I smirked as I set my pen down. “What’s up?”
“We need to go shopping. Like right now.” She said.
“Why? What do we need?”
“Clothes, food, and some decorations for my room. It’s so blank in there.” She listed.
“You can go for your stuff, I just need a laptop for school.” I said getting up.
“Fine, then let’s go to Target. Walmart’s always busy and messy.” She suggested. I nodded and grabbed the keys to my car.
