I was sitting in the backseat of my mom's car with my laptop. I was bored out of my mind. Bored of YouTube, pinterest, Facebook, and movellas. My family was going on a road trip to Kansas. #BORING. I sighed and looked over at my older brother, who was fast asleep. My mom and dad were talking about some boring politics thing.
"Only about five more hours," Mom said.
I groaned and sunk down lower into my seat. I had tried falling asleep a million times, but I just wasn't tired. Also, I hated sleeping anywhere except in a bed (or sleeping bag) because I would looked ugly. However, as we drive past dirt fields I really didn't have much of an option, I closed my eyes and fell into an uncomfortable sleep.
I woke up when the car lurched forwards unexpectedly.
"GAH!" I grumbled/shrieked.
My brother Marcus was laughing at something on his phone. He chuckled and turned the phone around for me to see. Displayed on the screen was a picture of me sleeping. My hair was all messed up and my mouth was open with a strong of drool falling down my chin. I took a grab for Marcus' phone, but I couldn't reach it. I wiped my mouth and put my hair into a low ponytail. Despite the heat I tugged on a sweatshirt and put the hood up so no one could see my hair.
That's when I realized that the car wasn't moving.
"Why aren't we driving?" I asked.
"Out of gas," my dad said shortly.
"WHAT!" I shrieked, "Well, call a toe truck or something!"
"There's no reception out here," My mom told me.
"So, we're stuck here until Marcus gets hungry and eat all of us then dies of AIDS?" I asked.
My dad laughed and I wanted to punch him.
"This is not funny!" I shouted.
I looked down at my lap.
"I have to pee!" I whispered.
Marcus cracked up. He clutched his sides and howled.
"It's not funny!" I screamed at him.
"Just go outside," Mom told me.
"Excuse me!" I hollered, " I am not peeing out there in the dirt!"
"Then you'll have to hold it for a long time," Dad said.
"Just don't piss your pants," Marcus told me.
I glared at him and shuffled lower into my seat. My mom drummed on the steering wheel. We all went back to our normal bored car ride activities, waiting for a car to come by so we could get a ride to somewhere that has cell phone reception and call a toe truck. After thirty minutes I was jiggling like mad. I really had to go. Marcus saw me and starting to make water sounds.
"shh drip drip plop. trickle trickle. Think of waterfalls, streams, and rivers," He took a big gulp of water form a water bottle, "Want some water?"
I punched him in the shoulder. He kept annoying me for another ten minutes until I knew I wasn't going to be able to hold it any longer.
"I need to go so bad!" I whimpered.
"Then go," Mom said.
I whimpered and stepped out of the car. I walked behind the car in the dirt and yanked down my pants. I plugged my ears so I wouldn't be able to hear my family. I peed and when I stood up I turned around to see my family and a group of teenage boys who had been driving and seen our stopped car. All of them had seen my naked butt. And now I needed to sit in their car for a very long time until our car could move again. It was going to be a rough afternoon, I thought as I saw the boys and my brother laugh at my embarrassed face.
